Workprints, Composites, & TV Stuff
History X uncut workprint: Alternate soundtrack and possibly some
extended / reworked scenes, I haven't watched the original enough to draw a
close enough inspection. Decent quality.
Apocalypse Now workprint:
(1979) Lasts 5 1/2 hours, letterboxed, pretty shit quality. Many never before
seen scenes including Robert Duvall saving a little Cong baby, the river boat
crew first rescuing and then later having sex with the USO showgirls, the once
lost French compound dinner scene, Dennis Hopper being shotgunned to death, plus
helicopters, helicopters and MORE helicopters! Tons of shit not even found in
the Redux version,
Army of Darkness composite print: Quality ranges from good
to crappy on this one, its a composite print with all the footage of the import
version of AoD spliced into the US version. You get all the changed dialog and
clipped scenes along with the original ending in the places it would have
normally been in the alternate versions.
Clarke's Mysterious World: (1980) Taken from the PAL release, this
is every episode of this amazing British TV series dedicated to the
weird and paranormal, such as strange creatures, mysteries from the
ancient world, UFO's, and more. Impeccable quality. [4 DVD's, R2 source]
composite cut: Absolutely wonderful recut of the film in
non-anamorphic widescreen, composite version with workprint scenes
inserted in where they should go along with a subtitle track that is a
workprint guide to what all was cut/restored. Truly top notch fan
Die Hard 2
Disaster aka The 13 Great Disasters that Shook the
World: (1979) [VHS source]
The Fantastic Four: (1994) Unreleased. [VHS source]
Freddy's Dead workprint:
(1991) Quality is pretty much shit, but includes about 20 minutes of footage not
found in any other cut!
Friday the 13th uncut: This is the uncut version that has those
precious few clips of gore that were cut out of the regular US release. In English with Japanese subtitles.
Friday the 13th: Part 4 composite workprint:
(1984) Regular footage taken from the 16:9 R1, with additional footage edited
in. New footage is from a fairly good source, A+ editing
job on the disk itself.
TV: 4 DVD set, 3 episodes per disk of the old
HBO sketch comedy.
(2007) [VHS source]
Halloween 666 composite workprint:
Widescreen director's edition of this installment before it got cut all to hell
and released to theaters. Follows a completely different storyline than the
released version, and while not the greatest movie it makes a lot more sense
than that garbage they ended up putting out.
workprint: Differs somewhat from the theatrical version although
I'm not 100% sure of all the changes. Timestamped with saturated colors
but completely watchable. [VHS source]
of 1000 Corpses workprint:
(2003) Depending on your disposition, either the a breath of fresh air in the
horror genre or an overhyped piece of shit, this directorial debut of Rob Zombie
tries to capture the look and feel of 70's exploitation horror flicks.
Widescreen, timestamped, no credits. Not sure exactly what cut version this is.
Has a few slight differences between the final version, including some
audio changes and visual effects.
Jason Goes To Hell composite workprint:
(1993) Fully uncut composite print of the ninth, and
supposedly final, installment in the series. Runs a bit like The Hidden, but
it's definitely one of the better sequels. This version has all of the gore,
dialogue, monsters (including the hellspawn!), fights and miscellaneous scenes
that are missing from both the R and Unrated "director's cut" videos.
Varies between fair to dog shit quality. Also includes pre-production visual FX
shots and some misc footage after the credits.
King Kong vs.
Godzilla: (1962) Same US dubbed version we've all seen, only this has Grampa
Munster hosting it on Super Scary Saturday! Lots of corny jokes during breaks,
also includes WCW style intro complete with Jim Cornett and his tennis racket.
Includes commercial breaks, taken from my 1st gen VHS tape.
Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 workprint: (1989) Rough cut of the director's cut of TCM 3, with
all of the gore that was cut from the R-rated theatrical release, a few
alternate scenes (Ken Foree bites it), and the original ending. This version
contains additional footage missing from the recent so-called "uncut"
re-issue. No music or credits.
The Man Who Saw
Tomorrow: [VHS source]
Natural Born Killers workprint:
Night of the Living Dead workprint: (1990) This is the unrated
workprint of Tom Savini's retelling of Romero's classic zombie film. Contains an
alternate soundtrack and all the violence that was cut in order for the film to
receive an R rating. Pan & scan or open matte? Not sure.
Return of the Living Dead workprint: (1985) Uncut work print
of this great tongue-in-cheek horror film written and directed by Dan O'Bannon.
This version contains lots of extra bits of dialogue and some
deleted footage including a little extra gore and an end sequence that takes
place after the ending in the release prints. No music and some alternate sound
takes also. Quality isn't so great, but
Special Edition: Has the same unedited movie as the Criterion
version, but with an alternate commentary track and a ton of extras and deleted
scenes not found in any other version. [R2 PAL]
by Grampa Munster on Super Scary Saturday! Includes lots of crappy jokes and
even a Top Gun style video complete with "Highway to the Dangerzone"
song. Has commercial breaks. Taken from my 1st generation VHS.
Funhouse Complete: (2000) Complete 8 episode run of this fucked up
show that originally appeared on Comedy Central. Hilariously done comedy shorts,
combining live action, animation, claymation, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Funhouse SNL shorts collection: The nearly complete (80+) collection of
shorts originally shown on SNL. Quality ranges from good to excellent.
Includes Ambiguously Gay Duo, Fun with Real Audio, ect.
