    Does anyone know if of where I can get the Austrian zombie comedy Brain Dead (Was on TV recently).

    I think it had a different name in the us and was cut but I can not remember the name.

    Is it out on REG 4 or REG 1 under a different name.

    It was renamed "Dead Alive" in the US (much to Peter Jackson's disgust!) and released in both cut "R" and uncut, unrated versions. The region 1 dvd is thankfully uncut and also includes the trailer. And is well worth the money!

    The Express.com title is the version I owned (was seized by HM Customs only to be later returned).

    This is, AFAIK, the uncut version. You should do a search at:
    www.deja.com/group/uk.media.dvd if you are concerned. You could also post on that NewsGroup too.

    You should also pick it up cheaper than what Express charge.

    Even the US Unrated version is cut! The version over here is the most complete, director's cut, unfortunately only available on VHS!

    Some of the footage lost is non-violent, while the lawnmower scene is trimmed down slightly - could be that the distributors thought it just went on too long, not realising that this was a joke, and just though people my see it as tiresome.

    If you can put up with the footage missing then fine, otherwise there is the German DVD, which has an Enlglish soundtrack, I believe the subtitles can be removed, too, but don't quote me on that!

    To buy this version, look at Sazuma, or German sites if you're up to deciphering the lingo.
