It's not out until June 14th. I got an advanced copy at April's Cinema Wasteland, Synapse had them out there early since Metzger was a guest at the convention.

Spoke with Synapse about the unrated Intruder A.K.A. Nightcrew:The Final Checkout disc...a few things of note (taken directly from email conversation):

"The transfer and audio work are done, but we are waiting for Scott (Spiegel) to finish his commitments with HOSTEL III before we record the audio commentary. Red Shirt Pictures is putting together some cool supplements.We have a bunch of additional footage. Not just gore, but dialogue, too... We found an entirely different version of the film too, so we’ll be utilizing some of the extra footage found in that for supplements.

I wanted to have it out by Halloween, but I’m not so sure we’re gonna make it. Maybe November?"

An entirely different version of one of my top five slashers? I'm so in.Thanks for making my year, Synapse!

Yes, but looks like we´re not getting two versions of the movie as they say "so we’ll be utilizing some of the extra footage found in that for supplements". Looks like they´ll show the extra bits as extras.

Either way that´s cool.

I see your point,but I 100% trust Synapse.. if it is worthwhile,it will be made available. Think of the soundless dialogue scene they went to great lengths to restore in "Death Dorm",simply because it was there.

I'm thinking the second version would end up being comprised of a lot of the same footage as the one we've all seen,with some bits Spiegel evidently didn't feel the need to include.

Since this edition has the director's involvement,(and apparent approval),I'm thinking these extra scenes must not have fit in the unrated DC,and therefore made better alternate/deleted scenes to be watched separately.

Either way, any footage not seen on the crummy Dragon/Wizard video releases will be a welcome treat...fingers crossed for extended meat slicer lobotomy (as seen in the digipak workprint footage).

Nothing major, but there's a small bit of alternate footage in the trailer for the previous Intruder DVD.

Trailer (0:24 in)

When Renee Estevez says "This creep keeps calling here, he's driving us nuts!" the shot in the movie is slightly different. In the movie, it was shown through the rotary dial of the telephone. It is probably even the same video footage, just shown without the rotary dial overlap. So it is nothing substantial, but something that I found interesting.

Yeah,there is definitely some alternate footage between the Intruder/Night Crew trailers present on other editions.One that comes to mind is Elizabeth Cox's character screaming when she realizes her ex-boyfriend is staring at her through the window while she changes. In the finished film, it appears she isn't even aware he's peeping her,and is seen calmly leaving the restroom. Also, Renee Estevez screams in the trailer when the killer grabs her by the throat, in the release version, she barely gasps before the knife falls, (and its noticeably a different take,not just a scream inserted over the same footage, like the Wizard Video re-edited trailer).

As I told Synapse,I would have thought with this being a lower budget project,every piece of film would have been on the screen,minus whatever effects turned out poorly,or the Motion Picture Idiots Of America made them snip out...but clearly there was a lot filmed,and for some reason unused, (perhaps Spiegel's commentary will shed some light on this).

Very excited to see this stuff,even if a lot of it ends up in a deleted scenes section, ( though hopefully not gore,as all of that belongs in the movie).

Am really looking forward to seeing what they do with The Intruder. Sounds like they're going to do it right.

Synapse, when might we see some (hopefully flippable) cover art for Intruder/Night Crew?

I'll definitely be picking up Synapse's BD of Maniac Cop over Arrow's.

All these releases are great, but still no word on Twins of Evil, eh?
