Special Features

- cover and disc art
- ipod version
Cuts and Additions:
- The teaser was added to the beginning. It features that great song by Devendra Banhart “Insect EYes”. This was also the reason that made me think of fanediting this movie in the first place. The complete version of Insect Eyes, along with some info and a little slide show can be enjoyed in the ending.
- Shitman was removed. Shitman is a poor scientist that was put into the latrine by the mutants, his body tortured with plenty of cuts, so he would die slowly from infection. Unfortunately this killing and the presentation of the entire scene made no sense in this movie. Never were the mutants so smart or was it their style to torture someone like this. The scene itself is somewhat entertaining, has a few scares and a lot of disgust, because shitman is… well… full of slimy, stinking shit. To delete him I had to use various cutting techniques, including zooming and replacing scenes. Also every reference to his existence is gone. I am very proud of the result for this. He is not missed at all.
- Colonel Redding is dead. Colonel Redding makes a great appearance when the rookies climb down the hill: With his skull smashed open and his one eye missing and bleeding like hell, he awaits the rookies and talks to them about the mutants and this guy for sure has a great knowledge about them. In fact, he knows everything. It is a miracle how he managed to stay alive, after he was hacked in his head and fell down 50+ feet from a rock, but however, he is there to fill the gaps of knowledge for our protagonists and then has a great exiting scene: he is asked how they will get down from the hill. He replies: “That’s easy”, moves to the edge, points a gun to his head and shoots himself. Just great. And for sure one of the most annoying scenes ever. Letting the Rookies find him dead and letting him stay dead was rather complicated and took again some heavy editing to accomplish. And it worked kind of well. I am quite happy with the result for this scene. Again I also removed any reference to his appearance in later on dialogues. This is really good for the movie.

What was not done?

- I did not remove any of the mutant scenes, although some were a bit over the top, like the disgusting long tongue scene or that stupid glass-wearing-sniffling-his-way mutant. The mutants are cool as they are and the movie does not suffer too much from them. It’s a monster movie and these are your monsters.
- So finally you get a true horror movie, which was very improved in my opinion, by taking out a few really annoying scenes and adding some great atmosphere with “Insect Eyes”.

It’s a cheap horror movie, but you managed to make it a very enjoyable one. Thank you, 3razor.

When I watched the original edit, I couldnt stand it, since I watched your edit, this movie is real good now. I know you couldn't do a whole lot with the soldiers, but you did what you could and it was great.

If you were turned away from the original, watch this edit and you will enjoy it now.

Lowered my enjoyment to 7, but the editing on this is really good. The story goes along as if nothing was missing.
