So sorry for this VERY late reply as I had been away from my PC for a month with only my mobile phone and then had been very busy with other things afterwards. But all that’s been taken care of to where I can now put my full attention to this thread and will immediately respond to all posts with upcoming updates soon.
The theatrical cut of “Blood Simple” was released on VHS (I would assume it was on laser disc but not sure). There was a DVD in R2 which restored some of the cut footage, but not all.
Added. It was also released on Laserdisc and the only thing missing in the Theatrical cut from the R2 UK Universal DVD is a dialogue sequence.
Wes Craven’s (terrible) “Chiller” was released on a DVD which looked transferred from a VHS and was heavily cut. There was a German VHS release which was longer, though possibly still not uncut.
The original runtime of Chiller (1985) is 95 minutes. Besides the VHS, the only DVD release with this runtime is the R2 German united Video DVD release and while it’s the uncut longer version, it unfortunately only has German audio.
“Hearts of Darkness”, the documentary of the making of “Apocalypse Now”, supposedly had a few small cuts made before Coppola would allow it to be released on DVD. The only specific references I have seen are that one reference to Harvey Keitel was cut, and Coppola singing “Anything Goes”. I’m hoping other people know more about this one.
OK, added. But would anyone know if these cuts are the same for the Blu-ray?
“Ishtar” might count – it’s only ever been officially released on DVD/Blu as a slightly shortened director’s cut, but technically the theatrical cut was pressed and a few copies trickled out even though the release was cancelled before the official release date.
The shortened Director’s cut was only released on Blu-ray while the full Theatrical cut was released on R2 DVD so it wouldn’t count.
“The Muppet Movie” had a longer theatrical cut in the UK, released on VHS and nowhere else.
Added. There’s also a Laserdisc version.
William Friedkin’s “Rampage” has never been released on DVD in region 1; the European version has had a DVD release, but the US cut is significantly different – I don’t know the differences, but I’m sure there’s some extra footage to qualify for this list. It was released on VHS, not sure of the LD status.
The US cut definitely qualifies. I’m currently working on a comparison right now with the original/european version. It will be added soon.
Oliver Stone’s “Seizure” - DVD and Blu are the US PG cut, but there was a longer “R-rated” cut. There is a German VHS release, but according to movie-censorship.com it is very rare and might not be entirely uncut, though it seems like all they have to reference the what is missing.
The longer R-rated cut was released on a German Blu-ray in a reconstructed format with footage from the German VHS.
The unrated cut of Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” was only ever released on a Criterion laserdisc; supposedly, they’re working on a Bluray of it.
Also, the “German cut” of “Psycho” is now being released on Blu-ray in a German box set, and the unrated cut of “Candyman” is being released by Shout Factory and Arrow, so those can be removed.
All have been verified, removed.
Robert Altman’s “California Split” was cut for the DVD, but I’m not sure whether it was ever released in any format prior to that, so I don’t know if that would count.
The original version of the film was never released on any analog format (VHS, Laserdisc etc.).
