The UK cinema and video release has been cut by 55 seconds to obtain a "15" rather than an "18" certificate. Numerous scenes are affected, particularly the rape and torture shots. In Ireland, the uncut version also initially earned an 18. It was resubmitted in its cut British version which yet again earned an 18 - this decision was then taken to the Films Appeal Board, who lowered the certificate to a 15 on 16th February 1994.
