Run time: 101 minutes vs 90 minutes


I used to own this movie on VHS, but it's been so long since I've watched it that I can't really remember what if anything is missing on the new "3D Circus" version of this film. IMDB (as well as the cover art for the DVD) both give a run time of 101 minutes; the actual run time of the movie on this DVD is only 90 minutes.

Like I say, I used to own this on VHS and have always found it a fascinating little movie; unfortunately I'm just not familiar enough with it to know what (if anything) is missing from this print, so if anyone happens to know what its official, original runtime was, I'd certainly appreciate it.

I'd guess that the English version is complete as we know it. It's possible the Mexican Spanish language print runs longer though, perhaps the 101 time listed is correct for that version.

BTW, that 3D rip off is a bootleg that just copied the old Continental VHS tape.
Look for an official release from Code Red later this year.

I just got the Code Red Blu-ray in the mail today. It's listed on the back of the case as running 91 minute,so chances are imdb's listing for the run time is wrong. Also like John Bernhard said the 3D dvd is indeed a bootleg.

Same here the copy that I'm watching says 1 hour and 31 minutes. I can not see how there would be 20 more minutes even in a Spanish edition.

I just discovered this movie gem thanks to the wonderful Code Red on blu ray, if you are a fan of this picture then grab yourself one before they sell out. This is easily my favourite cult offering of this year so far, can’t understand why they are only releasing a mere 1000, I won’t be selling mine....
