The following cuts were made to the movie in order to achieve an R rating in the USA (and apply to this version as well);
- Graphic sexual activity during the climactic orgy sequence was removed.
- Annette's death: The originally scripted scene showed her having her throat slowly pushed onto a pane of glass. The scene was filmed and very brutal, done all in one graphic cut. However, the shot was later replaced with her head being split open in the front door. That scene was still trimmed heavily. In unrated versions, the top of her head erupts and a splash of blood flies across the doorjamb.
- Rod's death had more blood.
- Timmy's death was an on-screen kill that featured gruesome spurting blood.
- A character's death at the climatic orgy was nixed for time and MPAA constraints. A male character's throat was slashed open.
