Hellraiser III Unrated?

I have a quick question, I know the US Paramount DVD is the R-Rated cut with deleted scenes as ezxtras but I heard the Canadian LGF DVD is the UR cut. Is that true?

No,I own the Canadian LG release....
It's the same version as the Paramount Pictures Rated-R cut....
Which I believe had a little more than the original DVD added but it's not the full Uncut one.

Re: Hellraiser III Unrated?

DVDaf says III is uncut in the lament configuration box set. Is that correct?

Re: Hellraiser III Unrated?

I really need to buy that box while it's available and affordable. I might get it next week.

Also, I've been looking into the 3 disc release of bloodline and have heard nothing but bad things about it. Does anyone have that release?

There is a 3 disc release for just Bloodline? While I thought the movie was a decent entry into the Hellraiser series (far better then a few of the later releases) it really does not need a multi-disc release

I know, right? It's a german set and includes a workprint of the film as well as other extras. If you go on ebay.de and search for monsterbox, theres one for sale right now for 100 euros.

The US one sure didn't take long to go OOP. The cheapest used copy at amazon is around $20.

Re: Hellraiser III Unrated?

The Paramount dvd is not the R rated version despite claiming so on the packaging! The dvd contains the unrated gore footage and the unrated sex scene, all of which are more explicit than in the R rated version. The dvd runs 93 minutes, while the R rated version runs 91 minutes. The old unrated VHS and laserdisc release ran 97 minutes and contained some added character moments/exposition, which is not included on the Paramount dvd. There are two music cue/audio differences in the Paramount dvd as well compared to the R & Unrated versions. Since they used the print LG used in Canada, which already contained the alterations.

Also,unless my laptop was confused. It says the audio bit rate on the dvd is only 96 kbps! Usually 2.0 mixes(mono and stereo) are encoded at 192 kbps at best.

Re: Hellraiser III Unrated?

There was a lot that got cut out of "Bloodlines."

I've seen photographs of a group of eighteenth century Cenobites, where they're wearing frilly shirts and powdered wigs.

you have to point out though that Kevin Yagher directed this, but something happened and he had his name removed and 'Alan Smithee' was added. I would assume the studio stepped in and did some hacking at the film themselves.

I wonder if Paramount quietly took it out of print when they realized that they issued the wrong version. I didn't realize that this was a R+ release and have yet to open my copy.

Re: Hellraiser III Unrated?

My Hellraiser IV monsterbox shipped. Hopefully I'll get it in a few days.

A couple of things I didn't realize 1) there are three covers 2) each cover/box is limited to 222, so there are only 666 monsterboxes in total. Talk about limited.

I've had this workprint for at least a year and haven't watched it. Didn't realize I was missing a lot.

Apparently. I've watched it a few months ago and it wasn't bad.

Late answer but I missed it until the spammer bumped the thread and had his post removed.
