For Slaughterhouse Rock, the uncut version is also available on a German DVD. Also, I take it Kino's DVD and Blu-Ray of Rawhead runs shorter than the Dutch VHS, does it not?

I included it because the Dutch VHS includes an alternate unrated shot that the German DVD doesn't appear to have.

Also, I take it Kino's DVD and Blu-Ray of Rawhead runs shorter than the Dutch VHS, does it not?

If the Kino Blu-ray is the unrated version with these extended shots then I'll remove it. I just need something to verify that information.

Could the same footage also be found on the original Italian DVD?
