I’m curious about the 18 seconds longer in 6 scenes in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I thought all releases were the same. Is their any information on the differences.

Author
Time

I claim that whoever said there is 18 seconds difference is wrong. All those shots are production photos that can be found in The film and the legend book. Even you can see the attempt to hide the spine in the book in the last shot. Dracula has always been the same on all formats nothing has been added to the theatrical cut. The images can be found on pg 55,62,63,100,121 and 132&133

The page is normally extremely reliable and very pernickety regarding shortened versions. So I trust them more than your claim. They also admit, that the pictures where not taken with a capture card, but as photos from the television.

The page might be reliable but until I see actual images from the VHS itself and not some production photos being passed off as extra footage. I don’t believe it.

Well… I hopefully should be able to tell next month. Got the Box at eBay. But can only check on few weekends, when I am where my VHS player is.

The 1999 ANCHOR BAY extended widescreen HALLOWEEN (1978) is not the same as the 1981 television edit.

The alternate scene of Laurie discovering the bodies of her two friends, in the wardrobe, is an alternate take that is not available on DVD/Blu-ray. There is also another alternate take used in the 1981 television edit - Laurie telling the two children to go next door and call the police. This alternate take is used at the beginning of HALLOWEEN II (1981). But here, it is seen in its complete form.

The 1981 television edit also included two title cards - just after little Michael has killed his sister - which are not included in the extended widescreen 1999 release of HALLOWEEN (1978).

More than one scene: 😃

Do all the LDs contain the extended version? I thought it was just the pan and scan releases?

Another entry for your list is Explorers. The 80s home video releases were re-edited by Dante apparently and they include scenes that are not present in the DVD-Blu-ray theatrical version.

If the two alternate scenes are not on the extended tv version on the Anchor Bay DVD I’ll need to verify it first.

To clarify, that scene is from the theatrical cut, which has only ever been released on VHS (CIC) in PAL European countries and that was during the 80s/90s. The theatrical cut airs on UK TV fairly regularly.

Explorers UK VHS

Explorers UK VHS II

The current worldwide DVD release by Paramount uses the Dante re-edited “Special Home Version” that was released in the US on LD, VHS and Beta during the 80s.

See below for a thorough discussion of the differences. 😃

http://www.haku.co.uk/dvd/Explorers.html

Regarding Blue Thunder, I looked into purchasing the US NTSC W/S LD a while back but the one I saw for sale on eBay appeared to have the theatrical running time. This is why I suspected that only the early pan and scan versions contain the additional scenes.

Another entry for your list is, The Charge of the Light Brigade (1968).

All current DVDs use the U.S. cut, which is shorter by 7 minutes. There was a 1992 UK VHS release that featured the original full length version. Whenever it airs on TV, I’ve recorded it, in the hope that the full length version might turn up but nothing so far.

Yes, it would appear so. The 1997 MGM W/S LD, the DVDs and the UK TV broadcasts aired on different channels have been sourced from the shorter U.S. cut.

The old German VHS of „Nightmare on Elm Street“ contained the Unrated Version with some extended footage of Tina‘s death (blood splashing when she falls from the ceiling and an additional shot of her body).

The German VHS of Hitchcock‘s „Psycho“ also had some alternate/additional material: A shot where Marion takes off her bra, alternate footage of Norman‘s bloody hands after he cleaned up the mess in the bathroom and Arbogast is stabbed three or four times instead of just once. It also has an alternate shot of Sam‘s letter to Marion where the text is written in German.
Unfortunately the shower scene is cut in these German tapes, only old TV-airings included the full uncut version.

Sea of Love (Thrillers Edition) - VHS. Extended version of the film. Nothing noted on the box. Contains deleted scenes from tv version but uncensored.

I can’t find anything on a Thrillers Edition, Could it be the Collectors Edition?

Nope.

I own it and did a transfer of it. It was released in the late 90’s.

Do you still own it to maybe take a few screenshots of the slipcase for release information?

That’s possible… I would have understand it that the German DVD and VHS releases followed the demands to release the version with the missing song. But also the German languaged branch of movie-censorship has an entry that the first german DVD contained the Theatrical Cut, while the new release contains the reconstruction…

Edit: I assume the old DVD only contains the reconstructed version… Next week I may be able to tell… Thanks to eBay… 😄

I think I still do. There’s nothing on the slipcover that says anything about it being extended. Hell, even the runtime is wrong.
