    I went to see the restored Nucleus version at FrightFest, you won't be disappointed! The new footage is spread throughout the film, even includes a character completely removed from the theatrical cut, the quality is very nice and it matches well, no shifts in quality that i noticed. Had a few beers with Marc afterwards, he's got lots more goodies up his sleeve!

    The running time according to the BBFC [....who passed it uncut, even with that Chicken footage!] is 104m 25s

    Here's Marc and Jake being interview at FrightFest.

        Ha, nice spin on selling what's objectively a worse product. "Yeah, another label is putting out the uncut edition fans have been wanting for ages, but don't buy that, because that's BORING!"

            Cult Epics post has the stench of desperation all over it.

            Kind of boring...OK Cult Epics.

              I don't even like this movie, but I contributed to the Nucleus restoration. When oh when is that coming out?

                  Pretty disappointed I sprung for the Cult Epics release before reading a review or even any word from someone that already had it. I really looks like a dvd from 1999.

                    That really blows, although nto too surprising. I really do not understand why Cult Epics bothered.

                    I am not sure when the Nucleus discs will be shipped, I know last week they were still finishing LADY F and looking for images for the photo gallery.
                    May not get these til next year but I'd wait until 2019...these are both going to be exceptional releases.
