Q
What are the differences between the German Version and the Original Version?
A
When the movie was released in British cinemas, it received bad reviews and completely bombed at the box office. This is why it found its way into the German cinemas only just in 1969. To make the movie more interesting, the 1 1/2 minute long title sequence was removed and replaced by a new opening sequence, which gives the viewer the misleading impression that "The Black Torment" is a splatter movie. Unfortunately, the German DVD by e-m-s only contains the German version. But the original title sequence can be found in the bonus material. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
