most of you guys might be aware that Total Recall (1990) originally got an X Rating
Info from Internet movie database
Total Recall was initially given an X-rating by the MPAA. The following are the scenes that were trimmed to receive a R-rating:
- Benny’s death is optically cropped to remove the exiting drill erupting from his stomach.
- The innocent bystander used as a shield was bloodier before trimming.
- The stabbing of Helm in the bar had the bowie knife slicing up his stomach. Stills of this were actually featured in Fangoria magazine at the time of the film’s release.
- Several shots of the scientists being killed by Quaid after he breaks free from the implant-machine were shortened.
- The scene of Richter’s arms being severed was shortened.
What I intend to do is maybe try and reconstruct the edited scenes with any source I could find and I also might try and recreate the scenes
if you guys happened to have a fangoria magazine with an image of helm being sliced up that was mentioned in the cut scenes can you guys let me know
