    I have the Geman release & it is the shorter version.

    The Spanish version is the same version of the film as the Code Red one but with more extras.

    the scenes from the longer cut are in the bonus features (deleted scenes) and shouldn't be in the movie anyway I believe.
    anything special about them? I can't remember anymore.

    They were just extended comedy scenes.

    Have to disagree a bit with Ian on the Severin release... looks to me like another one of Severin's [censored] encodes. I guess they must employ different people/companies for different projects since some of their releases do have good encoding... How about just using the ones who know what they're doing...

    No opinion on the color grading.

    Yeah, but who wants a cut version? Severin wins for that reason alone.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    Oh I agree about the cuts. So as far as I'm concerned they both lose. One just looks like it was done by competent people and the other... not.

    In reference to CANNIBAL MAN? The Spanish edit removes many of the scenes hinting at homosexuality because of prevailing attitudes in Spain at the time; the export cut eliminates a couple of scenes set in the slaughterhouse.

    There's a bit more info in this thread: http://www.rockshockpop.com/forums/s...panish-Blu-ray

    This article, in Spanish, is worth reading: https://proyectonaschy.com/2015/04/0...-mas-completa/

    The Spanish release is almost certaintly not a bootleg. It contains an 'integral' cut of the film that incorporates the footage exclusive to the Spanish cut (ie, the slaughterhouse scenes) and the footage that was cut from the Spanish release (ie, the scenes hinting at homosexuality). No vintage edit of the film included all of this material, but both are important (ie, the gay subtext, and the scenes emphasising the drudgery of the protagonist's work at the slaughterhouse - and its numbing effect on him).

    The original English language export cut had some other differences, as I recall, re-editing a couple of scenes and dropping the intertitles. (I don't think this version has been released on home video since prior to the Redemption VHS release of the 1990s.)

    This was the first title I screened on my new 4K Sony Bravia 43" Tv. I was surprised by how good it looked. Well done Severin. However it looked like it played in slight fast forward the whole movie which was very disorienting. No reviews mention this so maybe there's some fuckery enabled I have to switch off in the tv settings?

    The film itself is a real blast. I'd forgotten how fun it is. Sopkiw is a great and charming lead, the gals are hot hot hot (especially the blonde... Yowza!) and the silly humor really works.
