    Also, the price in that photo above is from a random photo online and not what I paid for it nor what you can get it for now online.

    What is the theatrical version on that set?
    The US Theatrical Version or the International Theatrical Version.

    Was just curious as I plan to buy the French release when I return to Paris this January.

    But then again, with just only one theatrical version, the word "definitive" is purely a gimmick.

    Directors cut 96 minutes (blu ray & DVD)
    Theatrical cut 81 minutes (blu ray & DVD)
    "TV" cut 90 minutes (DVD)

    Is the director's cut the full 96:12 minute cut including the 2 second scene of Evil Ash stripping Sheila? This cut was first released on the MGM Hong Kong Region 3 DVD.

    96:14 minutes is where the credits end and then there is a further MGM Lion logo that takes it up to 96:21

    Thanks for the reply, thing. Could you clarify if the directors' cut includes the scene where Sheila gets her dress ripped off by Evil Ash, for a gratuitous boob shot?

    Every blu-ray so far that has the International Version and the Director's Cut include the 2 second scene of Evil Ash stripping Sheila.

    If this version is diferent it is a first.

    Ok thanks for the clarification, thing and Demoni. It must be my bad memory and imagination that there was a boob shot in the R3 DVD. It's been a long time since i've watched AOD, so if the 2 second strip scene is intact, then the Blu-Ray should be the same cut as the R3 DVD.

    But in case anyone's curious about the DVD I'm talking about here's some more details on it. I believe it's the longest and complete Director's Cut.
