Distributor Seafirm Kalalexis picked up the film several years later, re-shot gory violence as a gimmick to bring in the audience at 42nd Street with a Cardboard mask given to the paying attendance to wear to avoid watching the violent scene when it happens. The gimmick was a failure, but thanks to today's youth audience the film now gain a cult following thanks to Kalalexis added scene. (Source)
