    What is the most complete, unedited version of Dead Alive/Braindead out? I heard that the Unrated region 1 version is still missing stuff.

    Incase it matters to anyone, the unrated US version is Peter Jackson's preferred cut.

    I have the japanese LD, and on some scenes of violence it goes reverse negative black and white efect (like a camera neg). Was this done by the japanese censors?

    Eric... yes, that is the version Peter Jackson likes (97 minutes unrated) but the original 104 minute version is available on Region 2 discs.
