    DVD File and DVD Review are reporting USA will release "Cherry Falls" in February as part of a double-feature with a movie called "Terror Tract," of which I know nothing.

    Movie's listed at 92 minutes, but there's no details on whether it's the TV version or some other version. IMDB lists the movie's USA runtime at 100 minutes, so I don't have a clue what that implies.

    It doesn't seem like there's any excitement over this disc from those Web sites or USA as far as "uncut" or special features or anything. Guess this one will just be another what-might-have-been story. Too bad.

    TERROR TRACT (with an aging John Ritter) was just on USA the other night and proved to be nothing more than a nasty, cheap, & predictable piece of made-for-TV trash, typical of USA Network...save your money...

    If you visit the film's official website, www.cherryfallsmovie.com , it says "Coming soon to DVD with never before seen footage they wouldn't let us show you." This means either the following:

    1) It's the R-Rated cut (since most of us saw the cut seen on USA Network).
    2) It's the Unrated cut.

    I e-mailed USA Films to see which version the DVD contains... if the DVD contains just the R-Rated cut, then I'm just renting the disc. If the DVD contains the Unrated cut, I'll buy the disc.

    Dave, the 83 minute cut (a.k.a. the TV cut) that most people saw was pretty good. Worth a purchase (if the DVD comes out in the unrated cut). [​IMG]

    I agree. It's a very enjoyable slasher that's worth checking out.

    I really want to see this because it has a great premise and the beautiful and interesting actress Brittany Murphy (Girl, Interrupted, Clueless, Freeway, Drop Dead Gorgeous) When is it due on DVD? Fangoria has raved about it.

    Well the VHS tape of Cherry Falls will include the 92 minute R rated cut of the film. [​IMG]

    Let's just hope that USA Home Entertainment does release the Unrated cut (which runs at 100 minutes) onto DVD. They could since the DVD comes out a month after the VHS tape, but I have a feeling that the DVD will include the R rated cut.
     
  11. BOO! do we horror fans always get ripped off or what? put my ass in cahrge of these releases. i'll realese everything uncut, unedited, unfuct. i hate that we have no control as buyers. who the hell elese will buy something like CHUD? an aging nun? (well, maybe) we horror fans are dropping the cash!! damn fools need to keep us happy. unless the creeps know we will buy it even if it isn't uncut. GIVE US THE WHOLE MOIVE BUTT WARTS!

    I have info from a reliable source with me right now...

    Good: The DVD, is now listed at a 189 minute running time, not the previous 185 minutes.

    Bad: Those four extra minutes belong to Terror Tract and Cherry Falls will indeed be the R-Rated cut (at 92 minutes).

    Maybe USA Films will do an SE one day with the unrated cut attached? Only one can hope.

    UGGH! Does USA really think there's an audience out there who want to see 4 more minutes of John Ritter!?!?! When will people learn?

    I want to know who even wants to *see* John Ritter anymore. [​IMG]

    IMO, this was a bad move on USA Films part. They praised Cherry Falls when it was uncut saying it would be the new Scream, yet when the MPAA butchered it up, they treated it like their bastard child. So they butcher it up even more for television (cutting out all the violence/death scenes and the orgy) and then they release it on an overpriced DVD (as the R-Rated cut) with a freaking John Ritter made for TV horror film on the flip side.

    I'm sure there were fans of the film out there who wanted to buy the disc if uncut, but since it's not uncut, good, USA Films saved me $20. [​IMG]

    The following is for the people who saw Cherry Falls on USA. I made this comparision from what I remember seeing on USA and the Hong Kong VCD (R-Rated Cut) which I only paid $6 for (and yes, it's an offical VCD). So here we go (the following includes spoilers)...

    Cherry Falls: TV Cut to R-Rated Cut

    1) We see more of Rod getting killed when Rod enters his car to rescue Stacey.

    2) We see a flashback in color (along with the flashback in red) of Stacey's death when Brett is looking around the crime scene.

    3) During the classroom scene, a good amount of the students use the word 'fuck' (which was muted out in the TV cut).

    4) In the TV cut, Sandy replied to Jody about if Sharon goes all the way by saying "I doubt it." In the R-Rated cut, she says "I doubt it. Like who'd wanna fuck her?"

    5) We see more of Annette attacking her boyfriend in the cafeteria with her boyfriend yelling out how her giving head.

    6) We see some of Annette's attack, but all we get to see is the killer pounding her head into the door a few times.

    7) When Jody finds Timmy's dead body, we see more of his dead body.

    8) More additional dialog when Cindy is talking about boys and sex.

    9) An additional scene with Ben and his friends getting high in his car and them talking about the orgy.

    10) A longer intro into the orgy.

    11) We see a brief nipple shot of Laura during Brett retelling how him and his friends raped her.

    12) When Leonard is talking about why he killed the teens, we see an extended shot of Lenoard stabbing Stacey.

    13) When the killer kills the cop by pounding a knife into his head, the TV cut showed the knife going straight into the head and then cutting back to Jody and Kenny running to the orgy. The R rated cut only shows half of this scene (the knife briefly enters the cop's head and we're off to Jody and Kenny running), but we do see an additional scene of the killer trying to get the knife out of his head.

    14) More orgy shots as Jody and Kenny enter the orgy.

    15) We see an extended shot of when Leonard stabs Kenny.

    16) Instead of the killer dying, once he falls off the balcony and crashes into the picket fence, we see him get up and Brett's assistant shoots him (we see his arm getting shot and a body part [too fast to see which body part] get blown up).

    17) The TV's cut credits rolled down, the R rated cut's credits roll up.

    So basically, the R rated cut still dosen't show Stacey's and Timmy's death scenes and Annette's full death scene. Also, there are more shots of the orgy which didn't make the R rated cut. At this moment, I hope USA Films does release an Unrated cut of the film, or they let somebody else do it.

    The DVD has been delayed to a March 20th release date. It also supports a new lower SRP of $19.95 ... no word on if any of the disc's content is being changed, but it'll probably still be the R-rated cut.

    Just a quick note:
    the double feature dvd "Cherry Falls/Terror Tract" is available for pre-order for a nice price (the price was lowered to $13.99 in Amazon). The dvd was also delayed...

    Since I didn't get a chance to see the movie (it wasn't shown where I live), I'll get this dvd (it's cheap...), even though I hate to buy cut releases...

    I would love to see the "orgy scene" ;)
    By the way, does anyone in here own a bootleg of the workprint?
