The Image Entertainment LaserDisc release of the film is cut, missing one final scene at the end wherein it is revealed that Aunt Bea is still very much alive (albeit injured) and still optimistic about crushing the human scum by planning on infiltrating NORAD. Instead, the Image LD cut of the film cuts straight to the credits after the final jungle scene, missing the final Aunt Bea scene in its entirety (this scene is present in the TV cut of the film shown on Showtime Flix).

I highly recommend this film to all. For some unexplainable reason I'd call this film a mixture of Tim Burton and John Waters (although neither of them have any association with it) For instance, if you are a fan of Beetlejuice & Mars Attacks (Burton) or Cry-Baby & Serial Mom (Waters) this film is definitely up your alley. This film has the subtle strangeness of Burton and the sick humor of Waters. That's all I can really say. The movie is hilarious (as are the 4 films mentioned above) in its own twisted little way.
