See review from IMDb : Dirk Ramsey is the MAN

This has got to be one of the funniest films of all time; featuring the most underrated action hero ever to grace the silver screen. For those of you who have yet to watch this masterpiece, Dirk Ramsey is the MAN! He is far superior to Spiderman; his intellect makes Batman look like a dunce, while his strength, even Superman would struggle against the might that is Ramsey. And did I mention that he oozes sex appeal? Throw in sleazy Eric Estrada as his side-kick Victor, and you have all the ingredients for one hell of a viewing. Also, all the 'ladies' on offer apart from Cat and Tracey Collins, are porn stars in real life, you've gotta love this film.

Beautiful young American tourist Janet Cooper goes on vacation to a remote South American country. After being arrested by a corrupt cop and subsequently found guilty of a trumped-up charge involving possession of narcotics, Janet finds herself incarcerated at an isolated castle located deep in the jungle that serves as a hellish women's penitentiary. The brutal staff at said prison not only treat the inmates as their own sexual playthings, but also force the ladies into prostitution and even let decadent rich folks hunt them down like animals in the wild.

Rejected because of its exploitative treatment of the sexual abuse of women. An Italian women's prison film in which the prisoners were raped and abused by their gaolers, was redolent of the video nasty era in that the abuse was offered not for condemnation but as an erotic spectacle.

US : Uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

See full article from the sBBFC :

In 2008, the full uncut version of Caligula was resubmitted to the BBFC for DVD release. The passage of nearly 30 years had significantly diminished the film's impact and after careful consideration it was decided that it could now be classified '18' uncut.

This decision accords with the BBFC Guidelines, which state that At '18', the BBFC's guideline concerns will not normally override the wish that adults should be free to chose their own entertainment, within the law.

Although there are scenes in Caligula that some people will find shocking, offensive or disgusting, the film does not contain any material that is illegal in terms of current UK law and nor does it contain any material that is likely to give rise to harm for adults audiences, most of whom will be well aware of its controversial reputation.

The DVD version was classified '18' uncut with the consumer advice Contains strong violence, sexual violence and strong real sex.

So orgy scenes etc are the original softcore as directed by Tinto Brass. See pictorial version details from movie-censorship.com

James Ferman commented in Photoplay:

Even before it could be considered for a certificate some 8.5 minutes had to be cut to make it legal. There are scenes of perverted violence that I wouldn't have thought would ever have been seen in this country, in clubs or anywhere else. A lot of the sex was just straight sex, but more explicit than has ever been passed here. They took out another 3 or 4 minutes and replaced it with lesser material to make it acceptable for the X certificate.

11 minutes of cuts including:

  • Views of Drusilla's vulva removed from several pints in the film
  • Sights of babies sucking phallic-shaped bottles removed
  • Much reduced scene of bootlace being tied around soldier's penis.
  • Hardcore action inserted into orgy scenes taken out
  • The sight of wine streaming out of soldier's bladder after being hacked with a sword removed.
  • Torture shots deleted, a stake into a vagina and several bloodied genitals.
  • Male blow job and masturbation deleted
  • Priestess bathing loses hardcore cunnilingus and insertion
  • Blood of recently ex virgin bride deleted as was greasing of the buttocks and suggestion of fisting for the similarly road tested bridegroom
  • A Lesbian scene lost all hardcore and explicit images
  • Death of Proculus lost a stabbing and the subsequent humiliation of being pissed on and castrated.
  • The sight of Caligula torturing a mouse was deleted.
  • A childbirth scene is missing an emerging head.
  • Hardcore elements of prison scene deleted

YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Massively cut by the BBFC for 1984 cinema release. Banned by the BBFC for 1987 VHS. The US release is a softcore version. Uncut in Germany and Italy

Summary Review: The Other Caligula

The mad Roman emperor Caligula romances a young Moor woman ploting to kill him while he continues his debauched lifestyle of sex and murder.

A fair Italian rip off of  Bob Guccione's Caligula. David Brandon is good as the demented Emperor of Rome. Ornate costumes and sets, as well as a lush film score help as well,

As per the original there is a long hardcore orgy. The lead actors don't get to feature in the naughty stuff.

The cuts for hardcore footage include a scene involving a horse.

Fans of cult cinema, and of the 1979 version should appreciate this one.

  • 2010 Third Millenium R2 DVD

The BBFC commented:

Compulsory cuts required for requested 18 to remove scenes of threat, humiliation, torture and abuse, sexual and sexualised violence, in a sex work.

The BBFC added in their 2009 Annual Report:

Some works submitted with a request for an 18 classification tread a fine line between being an erotic drama , with strong sex scenes set within an equally strong narrative context, and being a sex work, where the main purpose of sex scenes is sexual stimulation. Caligula's Daughter was just such a work. Its storyline, which revolved around the enslavement and subjugation of young women, was outweighed by the frequency of its extended scenes of sexual fondling and simulated sexual activity. With the latter dominating the work, it was judged to be an 18 level sex work. As a consequence several cuts were made to scenes where the sexual activity was combined with elements including lack of consent, use of restraint, or sexual humiliation of the female characters.

Camille 2000 Dual Format Blu ray

Camille 2000 is a 1969 US drama by Radley Metzger.
With Danièle Gaubert, Nino Castelnuovo and Eleonora Rossi Drago. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Exists as a shortened, standard and extended version. None have attracted censor cuts.

Summary Review: Stylish

A very stylish working of Dumas' Lady of the Camellias giving Radley Metzger's alternate view of what the year 2000 might look like from a late sixties perspective. Includes a notable score from the late Piero Piccioni and some stunning cinemascope compositions.

A softcore drama providing a portrait of the idle rich cavorting across the continent of Europe in an endless series of orgies and parties.

Generally well appreciated for its style but some reviewers have found the drama a little dull.

Summary Review: Job Prospects

Flat sex comedy with the philandering hero struggling to keep a job for a week at an employment agency.

Plenty of playful fun as he gets distracted from his quest by an endless stream of naughty women.

Totally softcore, but plenty of nudity in material likened to Benny Hill by an American reviewer.

The film was cut by the BBFC for an X rated 1974 cinema release but was passed 18 uncut for 2008 DVD.

Summary Review: Murderous Nutters

Two old maid sisters are running a little family hotel in Spain. They are very religious and the moral of the foreign tourist girl is too much for them, they start to kill them.

A very strange, dark and brooding film somewhat in the style of some of Pete Walkers offerings from the same period.

Judy Geeson is the sister of one of the disappeared and soon notices a disturbing trend of young gals disappearing without warning and sets out to investigate further. It is all really well done.

There is no real gore, but there is quite a bit of semi-nudeness and a nice little story underpinning it all.

Summary Notes

Candy Christian is an innocent young girl when she first hears NcPhito, an alcoholic Welsh poet, talk of love and self-sacrifice. Candy narrowly escapes McPhisto's attempt to rape her, only to succumb to her father's Mexican gardener, Emmanuel. When her father catches her with the gardener, he banishes her to a trip with his twin brother, Uncle Jack, and Jack's wife Aunt Livia, who are headed for New York City. As Candy makes her way to the airport, Emmanuel's three sisters attack her because she has corrupted their brother. Because of Candy, Emmanuel has now forsaken the priesthood. During the scuffle, Candy's father takes a blow to the head, resulting in a serious head injury. Candy nearly gives in to a General Smight on the plane in exchange for a blood transfusion for her father. In New York, an ego-maniacal brain surgeon Dr. Krankeit operates on her father, while Uncle Jack pursues his own operation on Candy.

Banned by the BBFC for 1973 cinema release. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: Classic exploitation

The Candy Snatchers is a very good example of the exploitation genre. It boasts a good plot with fine one liner dialogue and a wicked black sense of humour. The actor is also good. And to add to the mix, the plot featuring incest, drugs, murder, rape, and kidnapping is described as sleazy but light on violence.

There are several scenes that seem to have inspired Quentin Tarantino's homages to the genre.

94:35s 1992 US horror by Bernard Rose

UK/US versions suffer the same cut R rated version including the Universal  'Collectors Edition' DVD release of 2006

Uncut by the BBFC but pre-cut by the distributors due to MPAA interference to achieve an R rating. Thanks also to Bill

  • Cuts to a more graphic rocking of the doctor as he violently headbutts the table when Tony Todd's character Candyman is tearing away at his flesh. The screams of the doctor are reduced for sound impact too. C4 have always shown this film uncut and the distributor Columbia Tristar can be blamed for these cuts due to MPAA interference of which Tristar are a member of. The R1 version is cut the same, but the sound impact is not as severely reduced probably due to the prologic soundtrack
  • Unrated workprints (bootlegs) of Candyman also contain a more graphic beating of Virginia Madsen's character 'Helen' in the toilets by the black youths who enter into the toilet and who kick her several times on the floor while she bleeds profusely from the head wound inflicted from the blow by the hook of the main youth. This is cut in all regular prints
  • In the uncut print you can see Candyman's hook emerging from the doctor's stomach as he tears away ferociously and the blood spurts towards Virginia Madsen. This is not in R print, but is in the earlier VHS!

  95:14s Thanks to David

I bought the Special Edition of Candyman on the Tiglon label on R2 in Turkey and was extremely happy to find that it is uncut. The DVD video is much better than previous releases as well as the audio being vastly improved instead of previous monaural surround. Todd's superbly deep bass voice booms now! Anyway the good part is that it must have been taken from an uncut master or VHS source and remastered. I checked it with my uncut VHS taped from C4's showing several years ago and it matches. Great stuff!

All the previous MPAA cuts are intact. The violent jerking forward of the psychiatrist, the three or more main blood spurts( but they are quick!), the reaction shot of Madsen as his blood spurts on her face are all there and his screams are not lessened for sound impact as before. There is a mistake on the back cover as it says runtime 99mins(this must be a quote refering to R1 NTSC speed), anyway at PAL rate it runs 95 mins 14 seconds with the Propaganda label at end.

On the commentary it is mentioned that the MPAA kept rejecting it as an NC17, as they hated the spurting blood in this scene- 68 mins at PAL frame- but they are all there in this R2 release. There is a God!

German Version
  94:37s Thanks to David, July 2009:

Take a look at pictorial cuts details from movie-censorship.com which discusses the "unrated" German VHS of Candyman.

Now my Turkish Tiglon version seems to be missing the shots shown at 1.10.35-1.10.37 (NTSC I assume compared with unrated PAL speed) and final shot at bottom of page-back of doctor getting killed. In the so called harmless replacement shots of a shocked Virginia Madsen strapped in the chair the Turkish one shows her getting blood splattered on her face-missing in US R print (but could someone please confirm this- been a while since I saw US version) and missing too (going by their pictures here) of this German so called unrated VHS, which by the way is a bit shorter than Tiglon Turkish version to amount of 37 seconds, but contains more graphic violence as confirmed by pictures.

This appears to an alternate version to both R2 Turkish and R rated one. the German version appears to show more stock footage of doctor's death scene which has never appeared in our old UK VHS version/or DVD and the 'complete' version which C4 showed several times years back.

Interesting and disgusting mix of horror and action from the director of Castle of Blood Antonio Margheriti. What makes it work is that there is some nasty gore scenes like the infamous shotgun wound scene and eating chunks out of human flesh, a cool if cheesy funk soundtrack with a war theme that almost sounds like the theme to "G.I. Joe", a grisly twist in the end and the film is also a metaphore on how the horrors of vietnam can affect a soldier and this is one of Quentin Taratino's personal faves.

Summary Review: Delivers the Goods

Three friends out to disprove cannibalism meet two men on the run who tortured and enslaved a cannibal tribe to find emeralds, and now the tribe is out for revenge.

Not a patch on Deodato's excellent Cannibal Holocaust , which is just as gory and a hell of a lot more realistic, with believable actors and an intelligent script. In comparison, Ferox seems like just an exploitative rip-off. But taken in its own terms, Cannibal Ferox does deliver the goods (I'm talking gore-wise) with hard-to-watch sexual violence accompanying genuine animal deaths. The music is cheesy, and again not up to the standards of Holocaust, but it grows on you.

An e-mail from the BBFC explained further:

Cannibal Ferox was passed '18' by the BBFC in 1983 after approximately 7 minutes of cuts to remove scenes of cruelty to animals, sexual violence and some of the film's more extreme moments of violence. Before the introduction of the Video Recordings Act in 1984, the BBFC issued a number of such "informal" video certificates but once the VRA came in to effect (at the beginning of 1985), all such "informally" classified videos had to be judged again under the precise terms of the VRA.

By this stage, both the BBFC cut and uncut versions of Cannibal Ferox (both were released on video in the UK) had been successfully prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act. It was therefore not possible for the BBFC to provide a formal classification at this stage since our cut version (as well as the uncut version) had been found obscene. The BBFC-cut version of Cannibal Ferox was seen again for classification last year and was finally approved at '18' earlier this year after one brief cut for animal cruelty. The classified version will be the version passed in 1983. By today's standards the cut version of the work was judged to be acceptable at '18' and the previous conviction was not felt to be significant today. The cut version was removed from the DPP list at a later date and there have been no prosecutions since the early 1980s.

Cannibal Ferox 2 is a 1985 Italy / Brazil action horror adventure by Michele Massimo Tarantini (as Michael E Lemick).
Starring Michael Sopkiw, Suzane Carvalho and Milton Rodríguez. Youtube link BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for 2002 DVD. Less cut for 18 rated home video in 2017. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US. There is also a longer Extended Version release in Austria with deleted scenes having been reinserted.

Summary Notes

Michael Sopkiw hitches a ride to Brazil to dig up some dinosaur bones. Once in Brazil he gets in a few tangles with the locals and manages to secure a ride on a charter flight deep into Amazonia. All hell breaks loose as the plane crashes deep in the heart of the jungle, leaving Sopkiw, megalomaniac Soares, and a bunch of super models on their own to trek back to society. The group runs into cannibals, quick sand, murderous animals, and a renegade mine run by slave owners.

A low budget cross between Indiana Jones and Cannibal Ferox, this is just direct to video nonsense that seems to have found a whole new audience thanks to DVD and re-releases of long lost 80's horror.

As is to be expected there is a fair bit of gore from piranha bites to cannibalism but it is far less extreme than say Cannibal Ferox or Holocaust.

On a plus point its fairly entertaining if your in the right mood, with plenty of crowd pleasing nudity.

Summary Review: Very well written plot

A New York University professor returns from a rescue mission to the Amazon rainforest with the footage shot by a lost team of documentarians who were making a film about the area's local cannibal tribes.

Cannibal Holocaust was, first and foremost, a disgusting movie with more violence than I have ever seen. Despite this, it is also one of my favorite movies. It gives a feeling of Blair Witch done right, even though there are some very obviously contrived scenes in which nobody is holding the camera, but despite some small cosmetic problems this is the best horror movie I have ever seen.

This version contains the complete last Road to Hell sequence showing prisoners being shot, the dead body of one prisoner and a body being thrown into the back of a truck.

The BBFC cuts are:

  • to remove the cruel killing of a coatimundi.

The missing footage is replaced with shots of monkeys in the wild and a shot of Monroe and Chaco. Presumable keeps commentary tracks or whatever in synch.

The BBFC explained:

Cannibal Holocaust is a 1980 Italian horror film. It tells the story of a group of documentary film makers who go missing in the rain-forests of South America. An anthropologist who goes in search of the film makers finds cans containing their undeveloped footage. When the processed footage is viewed, back in New York City, it reveals their fate.

Cannibal Holocaust contains a number of scenes of sexual and sexualised violence that are insufficiently discreet for a 15 classification and which received varying levels of cuts when the film was previously submitted in 2001. In one scene, we see a native woman receiving a ritual punishment for adultery , which involves her being dragged out of a boat, being tied up, and then being violently assaulted with a spiked wooden dildo and a ball of mud containing spikes. Although the scene is shocking and some blood is seen, the emphasis is on the disturbing nature of what is happening, rather than on any erotic detail. The moments of nudity, which are generally shown in longer shot, are well broken up by facial shots of the woman and her attacker, as well as by reaction shots from the disgusted anthropologist and his team who are watching from behind a bush. In another scene, we briefly see a native woman being attacked by a member of another tribe. However, no detail is visible beyond some undetailed thrusting. Later in the film, we witness the documentary film makers raping a native woman. However, the woman in question is covered in mud and very little detail of nudity is visible in what is actually quite a chaotic scene. The scene is shot using a hand-held camera, with the woman moving in and out of view behind the thrusting buttocks of the film makers. The emphasis is firmly on the sadism of the film makers, rather than on any erotic detail, with cutaways to the female film maker protesting about what is being done. Finally, there is a scene in which the female member of the film crew is sexually assaulted and then killed by the cannibals, in retribution for the violence she and her crew have meted out against the native people. As with the previous scene, the manner of filming is chaotic, with hand-held camera-work and the action often moving in and out of focus behind other characters and the surrounding vegetation. The Guidelines state Content which might endorse or eroticise sexual violence may require cuts at any classification level . Although cuts were required to all four scenes of sexual violence in 2001, the BBFC's conclusion today is that the limited detail of nudity, and the frequent intercutting of the scenes with other material, renders the scenes horrific and aversive rather than erotic or likely to eroticise or endorse sexual violence in the real world.

The BBFC's Guidelines state It is illegal to show any scene 'organised or directed for the purposes of the film that involves actual cruelty to animals. This Act applies to the exhibition of films in public cinemas, but the BBFC also applies the same test to video works. In 2001, the BBFC permitted two scenes of unsimulated animal killing in Cannibal Holocaust , namely the decapitation of a snake and the stamping to death of a tarantula. In the case of the snake, the killing was permitted because the decapitation of the snake was instant and therefore comprised a quick clean kill, which is not inherently cruel in terms of BBFC policy. In the case of the tarantula, the killing was permitted because spiders are invertebrates and are therefore not covered by the relevant legislation, nor by BBFC Guidelines or policy. However, cuts were required to four other sequences in which animals were actually killed, namely a small mammal, a turtle, a monkey and a pig. On this occasion, the BBFC concluded that the killing of the small mammal, previously cut in 2001, was still in breach of BBFC Guidelines and policy. In the scene in question, a small mammal (described as a muskrat in the film [but actually a coatimundi ]) is killed using a knife. The animal is repeatedly cut with the knife, resulting in blood loss, and squeals in evident pain and terror. This protracted killing is a clear breach of BBFC Guidelines and policy in relation to the cruel infliction of pain and terror on an animal and in terms of the cruel goading of an animal to fury. However, careful examination of the other three scenes of animal killing revealed that, in each case, the animal in question is killed quickly and cleanly. The turtle's neck is completely and instantly severed, with a rapid blow from a machete; the monkey is killed by the first of two rapid blows from a machete, resulting in its head being cut in two; the pig is killed by a gun shot to the head at close range, resulting in instant death. Although, in the case of the turtle and the pig, there is some sight of the animals' bodies (or body parts) twitching, this is evidently a post mortem nervous reaction, akin to a headless chicken running around a farmyard. Although the BBFC recognises that these scenes of animal slaughter may be upsetting or offensive to some viewers, it is clear that the scenes in question depict animals being killed in a quick and clean fashion that is acceptable under BBFC Guidelines and policy and the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937, on which that policy is based.

The 2001 decision to cut these scenes was primarily the result of the disgusting and exploitative nature of the sequences, as well as the history of the film as a DPP-listed video nasty , rather than the result of a strict application of BBFC policy. In spite of any ethical concerns viewers might have about the killing of real animals for film making purposes, removing these sequences would be inconsistent with the BBFC's decisions to permit quick clean kills in several other films, such as Apocalypse Now . It is clear that these scenes are not illegal and are not likely to be harmful to adult viewers. Indeed, the most likely reaction is disgust and revulsion.

BBFC cut
5:44s
18 86:03s UK: Passed 18 after 5:44s of BBFC cuts for:
  • 2001 Protected/Vipco DVD

The BBFC commented:

  • Cuts required to scenes involving real cruelty to animals and to eroticised sexual violence

The BBFC explained further:

Cannibal Holocaust was not formally submitted to the BBFC until 2001, largely because its reputation as a 'video nasty' and its long history of prosecutions for obscenity seemed to preclude the issuing of a BBFC certificate. When it was submitted for video and DVD release the BBFC examined the film very carefully in terms of its own published Guidelines.

The film's presentation of strong sexual violence infringed the Board's strict policy on rape and sexual violence which states that 'Where the portrayal eroticises or endorses sexual assault, the Board is likely to require cuts at any classification level'. Furthermore, in common with a number of Italian films of the same period, the scenes of cruelty to animals were clearly unsimualted and deliberately orchestrated by the filmmakers. UK law prohibits the public exhibition of cinema films if animals were cruelly mistreated during their making and the BBFC applies this test also to videos and DVDs.

Nonetheless, the BBFC recognised that the film, although strong, could be made acceptable, subject to the removal of the above scenes. The distributor therefore agreed to make five minutes 44 seconds of cuts to remove unacceptable elements, after which the film was passed '18' for video and DVD release.

  • The killing of a coatimundi has been deleted
  • Our intrepid adventurers witness the riverside murder and mutilation of a woman presumably by her husband. We don't get to witness:
    • the girl being dragged through the mud and having her legs forced apart
    • the girl struggling and being raped with a wooden dildo
    • the man raising a mudball with spikes and the subsequent shot of genital mutilation
  • Another woman getting raped on the river bank has been removed
  • The disembowelling of a giant turtle has been predictably deleted
  • A monkey gets his head sliced open and its blood is drained into a bowl...but not in the censored version
  • The kicking of a tethered pig has been removed and its subsequent shooting and death
  • The rape one of a native girl by 3 men has been reduced
  • The cannibals eventually overpower the adventurers. The woman in the party gets stripped and raped but not in the UK version.
  • The woman's death scene is missing nudity shots.

Summary Review: Pseudo-sleazy

Real slaughterhouse footage and scenes of dirty urban slums set the tone for this stark and obsessive Spanish thriller.

A young man, working as a butcher, accidentally kills a taxi driver. His girlfriend wants to go to the police so he has to kill her too.

A slaughterhouse employee named Marcos gets attacked by a cabdriver who takes objection when he and his girlfriend are making out in the back seat, and Marcos kills him. This sets in motion a week of killing, first to cover up the cabdriver's death, and afterward to keep the bodies piling up in his bedroom a s ecret.

Weird, pseudo-sleazy film that works even though it doesn't even attempt to live up to its title - there's *no cannibalism*.

The dubbing is pretty bad and there's not much gore (most of the nastiness happens off-screen), but there's plenty of atmosphere and a sense of desperation builds in Marco's apartment.

Summary Review: Fails Miserably

After botching a kidnapping, two criminals hide with their victim in a friends house in the jungle. After one of them rapes the friend's wife, they're left to be eaten by a nearby cannibal tribe.

Cannibal Terror fails miserably on all accounts. Cannibal films aren't known for great plots this film literally has no plot. Some lowlife criminals kidnap a girl and run into Cannibals in a jungle. Almost the entire film is filler with pointless, boring dialogue. There is only two gore scenes but nothing viewers haven't seen in this genre before and better. The worst aspect of the film is the cannibal tribe itself as they don't even look like jungle tribal members. It's a bunch of extras from all different races and hairdos. Some of the tribal members are fat, middle aged white men and there is even one tribal member with 70's style sideburns!

The Director's original version was not acceptable to the producers. After differences during the production process, the studio altered the movie quite heavily and the resulting Theatrical Version didn't have much in common with Pyun's original version. It was also condemned to a straight to video release in the US.

However Pyun later released his original version on his website. It runs about 14 minutes longer and the result is not earth-shattering. In the middle of the film there are extended scenes extending character development quite nicely. However other insertions are just flashback repeats and are of low technical quality.

Carry On England

  PG cert 85:08s 1976 UK comedy by Gerald Thomas

Initially released at cinemas with an uncut 'AA' rating, but was soon cut to achieve an 'A" rating. This cut version has been distributed since on TV and home video.

Braintree commented in March 2015:

One of the Rank films , now owned by ITV and it wasn't until Carlton/ITV got hold of them that the original 15 version of Carry On England was seen again. Uncut for an AA it lasted about a week in the cinema where it bombed and was withdrawn and recut for an A. It was the A version that played on tv , was released on video etc. But the uncut version was retained so perhaps the uncut versions of the other Rank films are also in the vaults.

When Carlton released England on dvd well over a decade ago it was something of a treat to actually get a choice to watch either version. Shame it had to be one of the worst of the series. The disc with dvd/magazine collection only included one version (not sure which one)

Summary Notes

Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond looks after the British outpost near the Khybar pass. Protected by the kilted Third Foot and Mouth regiment, you would think they were safe. But the Khazi of Kalabar has other ideas. He wants all the British dead! But his troops fear the "skirted-devils"; they are rumoured not to wear anything underneath. Then one is caught with his pants on...

Summary review: One of the better giallos

The Case of the Bloody Iris is pretty much the standard Giallo of the time, but works well and is one of the better ones of an era dominated by them.

Director Giuliano Carnimeo going under the name Anthony Ascott does a solid job at keeping the pace moving along and there's no shortage of suspects and nudity. The murder scenes are done well with some pretty good suspense and tension and the investigation scenes are handled well and never lag. There is always something happening here to keep it from getting slow. Either we get a murder or stalk scene or we get some nudity.

Star Edwige Fenech is so incredibly beautiful that you're astonished to see her in a low budget film.

Long before Friday The 13th Sean Cunningham made this little beauty. It's actually the best movie he's ever made!

  • 2006 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

Cut on BBFC advice in 2006: This film was originally seen by the BBFC in an unfinished version, for advice as to the film's suitability at '12A'. The BBFC advised the company that the torture scene placed too much emphasis on both the infliction of pain and the sadism of the villain for the requested '12A' category. When the completed version of the film was submitted for classification, reductions to the torture sequence had been made, including the removal of lingering shots of the rope, close shots of Bond's facial reaction and the substitution of a more distant shot of the beating compared to the original version. This re-edited version of the scene was considered acceptable at '12A', where the Guidelines permit violence provided there is no dwelling on detail or emphasis on injuries.

Thanks to Floyd:

The Region 3 DVD is uncut, but there's nothing graphic in the torture scene. There are a couple of lingering shots, most notably where Le Chiffre lands the rope gently on Bond's shoulder.

In the cut version when there is a distant shot of him walking around Bond he says 'you've taken care of your body', and then in the next shot he's swinging the rope before hitting Bond.

In the uncut version however, he lands the rope on his shoulder, and he leans over to him and says, 'such a waste'.

The sound seems to be cut down as well of Chiffre swinging the rope before striking Bond, but nothing really shocking.

It seems that the hopes of an uncut US release are premature. The Irish 15A is the same version as the UK release. It appears that the German version has suffered even more cuts than the US/UK versions to achieve a 12 rating.

Perhaps the uncut version may have to wait on the (inevitable) Directors Cut.

Summary Review: Old horror movie style

A neat little brutal low budget horror flick. A freak locked up in a castle gets loose and terrorises mild-mannered family.

The gloomy cinematography and the authentic Italian gothic setting propel this monster along. Yet again, Re-animator favorites Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton turn in great performances, but it is the Freak who is the showstopper. Beautifully designed and wonderfully portrayed - a great tragic monster in the old horror movie style.

Summary Review: Exotic Barbara Steele

A writer accepts a bet that he cannot spend the night alone in a haunted castle on Halloween. Once night falls at the castle, several who had been murdered therein return to life, reliving their deaths and seeking to kill the writer for his blood.

Aside from the first boring twenty minutes before Allen is delivered to the Castle, the rest of the movie is pretty good. The creepy atmosphere and the strange, exotic, and seductive look of Barbara Steele make the movie a lot better than it should be.

Banned by the BBFC for 1999 VHS. Passed 18 uncut for the 2001 DVD. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: Nasty gore-fest

A horror film director is stalked by a mad psychiatrist/serial killer bent on killing people to model the killings after the director's gory death scenes from his movies.

Cat in the Brain is one of the goriest horror movies ever made. There is a lot of blood and gore, including chainsaw butchery, bloody stabbings and numerous decapitations.

The film is also interesting as "self parody" of Fulci, but the gore and violence is the key element in it. Some of the gore FX were taken from own Fulci's movies.

Highly recommended, especially if you like extreme cinema!

UK : Banned by the BBFC for:
  • 1999 Tartan VHS

The BBFC explained the ban:

The Board carefully considered this low-budget Italian horror video in the light of the usual tests. It has over the years, in this context, expressed concern about images which bring sex and violence together. The BBFC Draft Guidelines for Classifying Films and Videos (published in July 1998 in the BBFC's last Annual Report) identify sexually violent material as potentially harmful. The Guidelines explain that the Board is stricter with scenes of sexual violence on video than film, because of their potential to be played over and over at home. Sexual violence may only be shown providing the scenes do not offer sexual thrills.

A Cat in the Brain contains many sequences involving gross violence committed against women, often in a context with clear sexual overtones. It invites the viewer to relish the detail of the violence and killings. Women are even presented as enjoying the violence visited on them. The work switches between the three levels of "actual" film-making, the "Director's" own nightmares and the murderous attacks of the villain. However, the Board found that the main effect of this device was to enable the frequent portrayal of brutal and detailed violence, particularly towards women.

The Board concluded that the video was potentially harmful because of the influence it may have on the attitudes and behaviour of a significant proportion of its likely viewers, whatever classification it was given. The Board considered the possibility of cuts as an acceptable remedy. It concluded, however, that the sheer quantity of the violence rendered such an approach ultimately fruitless since it would be unlikely to change the general tone or approach of the work.
