you really have to watch it, telling you the synopsis would give the story away, but its a great thriller/horror

A missing girl and a funny goings on, on an island. It’s a bit of a one of a kind, I will not say too much as it may spoil it, but it well, you will just have to see it.
OH Christopher Lee does a Eddie Izzard.:D

The director's cut alters the plot significantly: it's a far better tale in this form. Christopher Lee was apparently outraged at the hatchet job they did on the original release.

There are still some scenes missing, and I think Christopher Lee has offered a reward for these. However, they're supposedly buried in the foundations of Spaghetti Junction!

Top hair by Lee, though...

The director's cut consists of the original edited film, with lots of previously 'lost' footage spliced back in. Unfortunately, the cuttings didn't survive in a high quality format, so the film changes picture quality between the original film and the cuttings.

It makes it interesting though: it shows you just how much they chopped out.
