It has been awhile since I watched it, in its entirety but not once did I ever think the gore was "realistic"...

I wouldn't even call any of it "gore"?  There was a lot of blood from the guy that got hit with the flake from the chisel, but they show guys bleeding from bullet wounds all  the time on TV...  I guess what happened to the guys fingers might be considered gore by some.

But what happened to that guys arm, even though you could clearly tell it was a rubber hand in the hole when the hydraulic ram moved, and they cut away fast, it still made me cringe pretty bad at just the thought of it.

Later,

This has nothing to do with the thread topic, but does anyone know why they cut the short in half??  The versions I have seen of this is a little over 20 minutes, and they cut it to just under 15.....  I am figuring it's for time, but my guess is, to keep people like me from ripping the video from my Education Archives dvd, and the audio from the Rifftrax DVD, and mixing them together into one, without the animations.

Lousy sorta copy protection.    ;D
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I think I read somewhere that it was to avoid some of the more violent and bloody parts of the "accidents" but I can't remember who said it, so it might just be speculation.

It's because watching the whole thing is like The Ring.

A question for those who've bought the VOD...  Is it the same framed version (with animated Mike/Kevin/Bill) as the DVD or is it the full-frame video of the short itself?

It's just like the rest of the released shorts.. Full frame video - No Animation
