Default Angel Heart (1987) 13 November 2019

Looks like Angel Heart is getting the Blu Ray & 4K treatment in Australia:

Cool, I never got it on Blu so 4K will be quite the substantial upgrade

This should be the same disc(s) as the UK and other European territories which means it will be the David M encodes.

Yeah, it'll be the UK 4K disc with a locally printed port of the BD if they stick to the pattern of the other Studiocanal catalog titles released here.

Was it ever confirmed that it isn't censored and has the cockfighting shots intact?

Not yet because it's not out in the UK for another week. German release is uncut.

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about that. Probably because the DVD I have is the UK one that "accidentally" snuck through with the uncut version

It is. But literally only a few seconds from the cockfight. To be honest, I personally don't really care cos it's so minute. It'd be a different story if it was the violence or sex scenes.

Huge thanks fo the info. Im a stickler for uncut versions. Looks like its the US version for me.

(There is only one instance where i am ok with censorship and the content crossed the line for me - the animal cruelty in Cannibal Holocaust)

There's no US release yet. That'll depend on whether Lionsgate thinks there's a market for which, which they apparently don't since they usually release their Studio Canal ports simultaneously. Your best bet at this stage is the German one.

Dammit I bought this yesterday along with Wicker Man I wish I had read this earlier about it being cut. I guess it's not a huge big deal though

Yes.

It's the UK John Wick story all over again. But that was different. That was a case where the resulting (and quite substantial) cut made the scene confusing, so I sold the Australian release and imported the US edition. I'm normally very an anti-censorship, but in the case of Angel Heart, it's literally just a few seconds cut of chooks blood. Very inconsequential and completely unnoticeable. Personally, I don't need to see a few seconds of animals' blood and it adds nothing to the film anyway. And I'm not paying through the nose to import the German release just for a couple of seconds of a chook bleeding.

After my first viewing of Cannibal Holocaust uncut, every viewing after that I applied the animal cruelty-free option. Being an animal lover, I really didn't need to see it again and it's obvious what is going on anyway... But each to their own.

I am an anti-censorship freak, but here, we're talking a few seconds cut of chooks going for blood. Very inconsequential and completely unnoticeable... Though it's pretty tame and no worse than what you'd see on TV, I personally couldn't care. I don't need to see a few seconds of animals' blood and it adds nothing to the film anyway.

I don't like Animal cruelty either. but a dog is a pet we all love. chickens well we eat... but yeah it's nothing huge that is missed, but I find there is no point cutting stuff out of original content. It's frustrating

but America have strange censorship law.. they beep out swearing even if it is words like arse

take the Eli Roth horror special. it was fine to show blood and gore heads coming off etc and full on nudity on the documentaries but god forbid they had to beep out swearing on the interviews or clips.

Totally agree mate. But in this case (for me) it's nothing, as it's so minute and even trivial. Normally I would balk at anything censored and go import another copy... At least I have the old US blu-ray if I really wanna see a couple of seconds of chook blood.
