    hi there,

    does anyone know if there's a dvd (any region) of the "european" cut of Blade Runner similar to the Criterion laserdisc of many moons past?

    this cut (shown in France etc) had about a minute's extra violence (hence "european", aren't we decadent?) for example, when Batty kills Tyrell and when Pris gets shot.

    any help?

    regards,

    There was a Unrated NTSC tape released ages ago that included lots more violence eg the full eye gorgeing, more bloody bullet hits etc. But this version has never turned up on dvd :(

    I hate it when censors cut UK releases. For example, Eraser (R2) has an ENTIRE scene cut (train crashes into limo at end)! what the fudge is up with that?

    Don't think the cuts in bladerunner were anything to do with the censors. I saw a very scratchy print at the filmhouse in edinburgh that was the "european version" Complete with Pris violently sticking her fingers up Deckards nose.
