The 2007 Region 1 DVD from Twentieth Century-Fox contains some extra scenes when compared to the original theatrical and previous home video releases. At the conclusion of the story "Poetic Justice," previous releases showed the man beginning to open the bottom part of the Valentine's letter, it then cuts to him screaming and covering his face with his hands, and then cuts back to the letter to reveal a still beating, severed heart inside the paper. The 2007 release actually shows the heart when he opens the letter, his scream is heard off-screen, then it cuts to him covering his face, then cuts back to the shot of the heart as in previous releases except, the shot is slightly longer. In the story "Wish You Were Here," when Enid chops up Ralph with the saber, there is a shot of Ralph's exposed intestines which was not present in previous releases.
