Is there a DVD of the original cut?

Nope. Just VCD. I assume thereíre some fan edits which try to reconstruct the original (maybe thereís a laserdisc with the mono, donít know), but Iím damned if I could tell you where to find it.

These LaserDiscs are from the same company that did the VCD release, Mei Ah Laser Disk Co. Ltd. Its the complete, uncut film, but was sold as two separate releases to scam more money out of customers.

Disc 1: https://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/54759...ster-II-Part-1

Disc 2: https://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/54760/

Cantonese and Mandarian mono audio options with burnt in English subtitles. Hong Kong release, so they are NTSC. Also in the correct aspect ratio of 2.35:1

Yeah IIRC the Thakral DVD is 1.85:1 and has the original cut. I think I might still have it actually. God knows if it will actually still play or not these days though!

No, ever since the good old days of LD/VCD/VHS your only option to source this film completely uncut in original language and original aspect ratio is from fan-made bootlegs that weave it all together using aforementioned LD/VCDs for the closing scene.
