The uncut version of "Deathwish II," which is the version that was originally released on VHS in Germany, features a longer running time and uncensored depictions of violence and rape. When the uncut German version was reformatted for DVD, it was released with the same censorship as the U.S. version.
The German VHS version is considered uncut because it was released as unrated and therefore avoided the censorship placed on versions released in the United States and other markets. It includes a more graphic version of a scene depicting a violent sexual assault on a housekeeper. A thorough comparison of the scenes included in this unrated version is available on Movie-Censorship.com. There are currently no plans for an uncut version to be released in the United States.
