    Play have Videodrome on sale for 7.99, but I cant find out what aspect ratio it is in. The region 1 is 1.85 : 1 anamorphic.
    Can anyone tell me, or tell me where I can find out please.

    Do you have it? If so, which region? I had the pal laserdisc which was uncut, but the dvdcompare link says that reg 2 and 4 are cut.

    Region 2. I've seen this movie many times before owning the DVD and haven't noticed any cuts. What do they say is missing?

    It seems to say that nothing is missing, its that they have shortened various scenes by a few seconds here and there.

    the region 2 videodrome dvd is uncut as far as i can see: videodrome WAS cut originally on video (the barry convex cancergrowth/split-open thingy and debbie harry's s+m) but was reincorporated when it was rereleased on vhs in the early 90s.

    this is the same version as on dvd R2 which is exactly the same as the yank "R"-rated version i had on vhs a few years ago.

    if it's cut, i'd like to know what's missing: there is a longer cable tv version that was banging around on bootleg but it's inferior (mostly added dialogue that's nonsensical -- convex explaining that the dream-helmet thingy was originally a nightsight headset for snipers -- Hello! it glows in the dark!)

    regards,
    anephric

    As I mentioned, I used to have the pal laserdisc, which was supposedly uncut. According to the above link, the region 2 DVD is cut.
