    In a fit of enlightenment, the BBFC has waived all previous cuts to "The Extermainator" as of 20.05.04. Obviously a new UK release is imminent.

    Will it be as good as the R1 Anchor Bay version?

    Still, it's a small step forward :thumbsup:

    Cuts to Exterminator were.....(taken from Melon farmers) Depends which version you saw?


    Braveworld version cut in 1991
    44s cut for the cinema version and the Pre-VRA Intervision version. A further 2:54s were cut for the Braveworld video.

    The cinema version suffered the following cuts:

    The opening Vietnam scene has lost 2 shots:
    Two cuts shorten the infamous beheading scene (10s)
    A Vietcong with wire
    The attack on Jefferson at 17mins loses 2 shots.
    Part of the gang leader's stabbing of Jefferson
    A 3s close up of a weapon tearing into Jefferson's back
    The torture of a hooker at 50mins
    26s missing including 2s of the hooker lying on the bed
    The mugging of an old woman is missing 2s
    The following additional cuts were inflicted on the certificated video version

    The opening Vietnam scene has a further 4 cuts:
    The infamous beheading shot has been shortened further (7s)
    A shot of a Vietcong trying to remove wire from his throat is missing 2s
    A 4s slow motion shot of a Vietcong being shot several times has been deleted
    The slow-motion shot of a burning Vietcong jumping in the water has been shortened by 5s.
    The attack on Jefferson suffers 2 further cuts.
    2s cut of gang leader with his weapon
    2s cut from the stabbing of Jefferson
    The torture of a hooker is well shortened
    Two shots missing totalling 1s showing the hooker being stripped
    A further 11 shots of torment totalling 28s
    The scene where Eastman (Robert Ginty) fills a dum-dum bullet wth mercury has been heavily cut, almost 2.30 minutes, missing 12 shots
    The UK ending was apparently missing from US releases up until the recent Anchor Bay Director's cut DVD/video. This Director's Cut was the version originally submitted to the UK censors

    (Synergy Video)
    Some cuts were waived for Synergy cut in August 2000 with the following BBFC comment:

    Cuts required to process beheading and graphic process violence, both in breach of Board guidelines; and to impressionistically strong sadistic torture of woman

    Wow!!
    I had totally forgotten about this film but as soon as I read this thread I could see the head chopping off scene in my mind like I had watched it yesterday.

    I will keep an eye out for this one. I hope it has stood the test of time.
