As long as it's the unrated US cut, I'm happy. What's good enough for Peter Jackson is good enough for me.

How can you be happy with the unrated US cut?
The US cut is missing plenty of footage and some cool gore!

And how can you say that what's good enough for Peter Jackson is good enough for you if Peter Jackson himself prefers the longer version?

You are mistaken. As myself and two or three others have already stated in this thread, but I'll state it again:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_Alive#Versions

"In the United States, where the film was released as Dead Alive (because of another film with rights to the practically identical title Brain Dead), the R-Rated version is only 85 minutes with most of the gore scenes removed, while the unrated cut is 97 minutes with the gore scenes mostly intact. The USA 97 minute version is Peter Jackson's preferred version, as he was given the opportunity to "apply some additional spit and polish" to it."

Gore for gore's sake doesn't make a better film. The 97 minute version, I feel, flows at much brisker pace and doesn't overstay its welcome.

Jackson said he prefers the Unrated Cut. Though I think the 7 minutes of footage should be included as deleted scenes for the release.

If that is really the case then I will have to pass.

Well I know Grim will wait to hear from Lionsgate (read: HDD) but I am certain this will be the 97 minute U.S. director's cut. Lionsgate bought Trimark and that's the version they released on DVD so no reason not to expect the same. Lionsgate isn't releasing extended cuts of the films they've acquired from other studios.

And Grim, that brief article at HDD doesn't mention one detail that wasn't already on Walmart's site several days ago. So I'd hardly call that official info from Lionsgate.

Such a ridiculous statement.

American studios have restored dozens of films to their "true" director's vision. Look at the work Criterion has done with films, trying their hardest to find the most complete version in existence of any particular film. When movies first started coming out on DVD, American DVD companies (like Anchor Bay) were the first to start releasing full, uncut versions of films when they were still being released censored in the UK.

"Murderers of directors' visions." Please. Look at Germany, Australia, the UK, Finland...

The US is by FAR one of the most lenient when it comes to film censorship. An MPAA rating is OPTIONAL, not mandatory.

Yeah I know, I just tend to wait until there is a press release of some kind released from the company, which is what was put out on HDD and other sites like Shocktillyoudrop and Bloodydisgusting . I've seen retailers put films up before, only for them to be taken down.

I would go as far as saying the US is the most lenient, with the exception of maybe France.

I don't get this quote. The film was unrated, cutting a little bit of the gore but keeping the majority of the still EXTREMELY graphic and gratuitous footage in would not have dropped the film to an R-rating. It was a personal choice of Jackson's. Gore being cut doesn't always equal censorship. (Unless you consider this a case of Jackson censoring himself) Why are people still debating this when Jackson has gone on record about the cuts?

$10.99 on Amazon right now. Even barebones, this is a steal!

Amazon.ca has the original trimark U.S. uncut cover for their listing so I'm gonna assume that this is the version coming out & I'm good with that.
