<span style=“white-space: pre;”></span>Jaws The Revenge was known as the worst Jaws film and one of the worst films in history. Occasionally, you would only see this film on late night Television to fill time slots. Some of those channels were AMC along with BBC (in the UK) and HBO. All three of these channels aired Jaws the Revenge, but not the one you saw on VHS or Laserdisc. It was longer and contained different scenes and a whole different ending.
<span style=“white-space: pre;”></span>HBO was the first to show this version in it’s true uncut form after the film was released on home video. Then in the 90’s BBC-1 aired Jaws the Revenge and it was open matte, exposing all of the shark’s mechanics and it was also fully uncut. Then, in 2004, AMC had ‘Jaws Night’ which was a special night of nothing but all 4 Jaws films. When Jaws the Revenge aired, it contained an extended intro, deleted scenes, and the original uncut ending. Since then, Jaws the Revenge has never been shown uncut.
<span style=“white-space: pre;”></span>In 1999, GoodTimes released Jaws the Revenge on both DVD and VHS, it was the first Jaws film on DVD. The GoodTimes version contained the ending that Universal had forced into all home video releases but one extra scene of Ellen steering ‘Neptune’s Folly’ while Michael was preparing the zapper to kill the shark. When Universal released Jaws the Revenge on DVD in 2003, that scene was absent. Now, in 2012, I am going to combine all these versions together to make one long, fully uncut, complete preservation of Jaws the Revenge.
