In the movie, Seth points out something on his hip when he is crawling on the wall. Originally, he had a third arm grow out of there, which he ripped out! They said they had to take that part out of the movie because it was too graphic and gory. The people were fainting and vomiting in the screening.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions
