Alternate Versions

The version released in the U.S. was re-dubbed because the distributor feared that American audiences would have had problems understanding the thick Australian accents spoken by the actors.

Japanese DVD features the original Australian dialog and contains the original theatrical trailer.

TV version is cut for violence and runs 88 minutes.

At one point, UK video releases edited the scene where the bikers tear up the hot-rod with the terrified couple inside. Instead, the scene cut to black as the bikers smashed the first window. This scene was later restored.

In 2000, MGM (which by this time had assumed control of the American International Pictures/Filmways/Orion Pictures library) re-issued the film in limited roadshow release in its original uncut version with the Australian dialogue track intact.
