Q
What are the differences between the British BBFC 18 Version and the Uncensored Version?
A
This decent high school actioner was shown in British cinemas in a version that was shortened by 25 seconds. The following VHS versions contain the same cuts. All the scenes with the, at that time prohibited, throwing stars had to be removed to get an approval from the BBFC. An uncut version has not yet been released there. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
