Richard Stanley’s 1992 film “Dust Devil” is another in a long line of films that fell into obscurity due to studio tampering and then resurfaced thanks to the spread of video technologies. While at first cut down to almost 40% of its original running time, Stanley reassembled what some call a “compromised” cut of the film that went out on a short run in theaters. The film then became available on DVD in a “Final Cut” version restoring much of the truncated plot points.
