"Dean Parisot revealed that the original film was much darker in tone and had more scenes of violence, but after test screenings it was reedited to emphasize the comedy factor"...
Sounds like a very different film. Interesting.
Well, at least it has a nice cover.
Oh, gods, no. Never. Better not to release anything than create such unwatchable and pointless hybrids.
Judging by the caps, the quality is perfectly normal and very watchable for a VHS of a workprint. It looks exactly as I thought it would.
I actually downloaded this torrent and intend to see the clip...
Anyway, while the film was more often than not painfully stupid and filled with annoying cretins, I liked its overall message.
:: I've amended the link slightly so it's not quite as direct as it was originally.
I'm not contacting this guy since I don't have anything from his want list, but perhaps someone else has. Just note that it's from 2001.
Too bad there isn't and won't be a release of the first cut of SIV... and so far the "best" set I've seen is this pirate crap sold by a certain twat at a certain place (obviously removed):
What next, a longer version of "Charlie's Angels" or "Manos"?
Anyway, pick anything from the top of hublist.org - every bigger place will have at least ten sources of the film.
That has been done for example with "Brazil" on the official DVD - there's an extra disc with a weird US version which is cut so much it would make Beria and Stalin wince, and which has an idiotic "happy ending".
