Rasputin: The Mad Monk (Blu-ray)

     The BBFC made the following cuts to Rasputin: The Mad Monk for UK theatrical release: (a) the Rasputin/Sonia love scene was shortened to end on the shot of Rasputin tearing open the back of Sonia's dress. The uncut version continues the scene for another 20s climaxing as she gets into bed and Rasputin pulls the blanket off her (unseen) naked body; (b) Two shots were shortened in the scene in which Peter is disfigured by acid in order to remove close shots of Peter's scarred face.

     This Blu-ray contains the uncut version of the film.
