The UK DVD from DD Video was originally the same as the USA R-rated print but was then corrected to reinsert the teeth clamping sequence. However, all other cuts as described above remain. The German R2 DVD, which contained an English language track, restores all of the cuts except for the small trim to the close-up of the throat wound and was, for some years, the most complete version of the film available on DVD. The film was eventually fully restored and was released on DVD in the UK in 2014.
