One of my friends is a big fan of the movie, and told me that the theatrical version is a bit shorter than the version that was put on tv a while ago, and that they had added a bunch of scenes to it, and yet they haven't released that version of the movie on dvd/bluray.

I figured I would come onto the forums here and ask for him. Has anyone heard as to whether the extended version of Needful Things will ever get released on dvd/bluray?

I really, really, really want to have the longer version in my collection! I'm sure there's enough fans out there who want it also.

Thanks for the thread :) I did not know there were two different versions.

That was interesting :) I've only seen the TBS version. TBS shortened Natty's dog's demise scenes (I actually wished they'd removed the entire scene). And TBS also censored Natty's and Wilma's fight. The differences between the parking tickets is pretty funny too lol. I need to order the dvd :)
