The cinema release was cut by 5:00s when submitted in 1985.

The video/DVD hasn't been released in the UK but there is an uncut 2008 region 0 release available at US Amazon

Review from IMDb

After being gang raped and then having sex with her husband, a woman (Vicky Adams) discovers that marital sex is a lot better when the relationship is open. This is an extremely rare film from Jess Franco but it's really a straight love story and not a sleazy effort. Franco treats the subject matter with full respect and tries his best to tell an honest story about marriage and the film remains interesting throughout, although not too much really goes on. Lina Romay has a small part as a sex teacher.

See review from IMDb : Some good moments

Unusual for Michael Dudikoff, he plays a foul-mouthed character, an ex-Green Beret who now works for an American oil company in a foreign country. The F word flies left and right from the Dudemeister's mouth as he winds up the only survivor of a massacre at the refinery he's there to inspect.

Not one of my favorite Dudikoff films, but there's some good moments throughout. The opening titles are pretty cool, with the credits set against a montage of oil fields with some cool music playing, Keren Tishman is gorgeous in her (to date) one and only film role, and the long climactic fight between Dudikoff and Todd Curtis is well-executed. But, it doesn't make the list as one of my favorite Dudikoff films.

US: The film was originally rated NC-17 (18) by the MPAA. The distributors appealed for an R Rating but lost their case. Cut were made to a nasty throat slitting and the resulting cut version was given an R Rating for its theatrical release.

The cut seems to be more about the sadistic lack of mercy rather than the explicitness of the violence which is at a level often scene in R rated fims

The October 2012 US DVD/Blu-ray releases contain the cut Theatrical Version but includes the cut scene as an unrated extra.

1983 US/West German prison drama by Paul Nicholas.
With Linda Blair, John Vernon and Sybil Danning. IMDb

The US release is cut, but the best available, and is MPAA R Rated for:

From article from 10kbullets.com , thanks to David:

This version includes extensions of most of the nude scenes and significantly ups the Mr. Skin rating, but nothing here really affects the dramatics of the story.

There are two brief cuts, one extraneous and unnecessary (the needle injection), but another that changes the dynamics of the entire movie. In the pre-credits sequence a female prisoner attempts escape and is shot to death. The fact that she was shot in the back, and more importantly who did so, affects the viewer's regard for that character and anyone closely associated with her, and that is what was cut.

Summary Review: Suitably Over the Top

A fine example of women in prison films noted for the presence of Linda Blair (who reckoned she was duped into accepting the part). Otherwise it has over the top performances of warders mistreating inmates, plenty of catfights and enough nudity to pep up the action.

  • 2014 Millennium R1 DVD
  • 2013 Millennium VOD [US only]
See  article from  huffingtonpost.com :

Evan Rachel Wood co-stars with Shia LaBeouf in Charlie Countryman , an indie drama that earned an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America because of some brutal violence, language throughout, sexuality/nudity, and drug use. According to Wood, however, an early MPAA ruling forced director Fredrik Bond to sanitize a key sex scene in order to avoid an adults-only NC-17.

Wood took to Twitter to admonish members of the ratings board for their stance on female sexuality, noting that the scene in question was cut down because it showed a male performing oral sex on his female partner.

See review from  shockya.com : Maybe all just hype

There was supposed to be some controversy with the sex scene that Evan Rachel Wood was all up in arms about, that the MPAA ordered to cut out Charlie performing oral sex on her to get an R-rating. I'm kind of glad they did, because Shia is really hairy and grimy and that just wouldn't be hot at all watching this dude that's been wearing the same clothes for almost 48 hours have sex. I mean the whole double standard of men vs women getting oral sex on screen is a bit outrageous, but removing it had no effect on the scene whatsoever.

3s+ 12 cert 101:09s 2003 US adventure by McG

Same cuts to cinema and video versions.

  • Cut to remove a head-butt. The distributors were offered a 15 - a certificate they accepted for the first film - but they chose to cut it for a 12A instead. The BBFC's annual report singles this out as being a particularly unacceptable head-butt. Oddly, it wasn't reinstated for the DVD or video version - not even the version that's packaged with the original and is therefore a 15 anyway.
  • The US theatrical version was edited for violence and sex to avoid a R rating. This version was the basis for all international releases. For US home video the film was released in its original theatrical version (North America only) and in a special "unrated" version (worldwide except UK). The unrated version contains a few more scenes of sex and violence, including an extended "Pussycat Dolls" dance number, some shots of characters lying still when dead or unconscious, and more graphic depictions of some of the characters' demises. Also included in this version are two instance of characters spitting blood from their mouths during a fight and a reference to the first film. During the fight with the Irish mob on the freighter, Dylan puts her legs in the air while seated in an attempt to distract her attacker, similar to how she delayed a fight in the first film.

  • The video lost a shot of Charles Bronsons squaw being carried into a hut before her rape losing sight of her bare buttocks.
  • After the rape she is carried outside naked and covered with a blanket. A shot of Simon Oakland tearing away the blanket and exposing a full frontal shot of the woman has been removed as well as his leering at her body.
  • The most extensive video cut is to the scene where Jack Palances posse burn a wounded old Indian alive. In the video version the scene is edited so that you are led to believe that the Indian is dead as he is being burnt and so subsequent footage of Jack Palance shooting the Indian to end his suffering has been removed.

  • 2011 Revolver Online
  • 2011 Revolver Blu-ray
  • 2011 Revolver R2 DVD
  • 2010 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

This film was originally sent to the BBFC at the script stage. Based on a reading of the script the BBFC informed the company that the film was generally likely to fall within the desired 15 classification. However the company were advised that some scenes had the potential to take the film to 18 , or be otherwise problematic, dependent on how they were shot. In particular the BBFC advised that scenes featuring child actors should not be filmed in such a way as to sexualise the performers. It was also advised that scenes featuring suicides should be kept discreet and that novel detail which could be copied should be avoided. In a couple of cases the company were advised that specific lines of sexual dialogue should be removed or changed for the 15 classification.

A version of the film was subsequently submitted to the BBFC prior to formal submission and most recommendations from the original script had been addressed.

On formal submission of the finished version the changes remained evident and the film was classified 15 .

The BBFC explained their 15 rating:

Chatroom is a drama about a group of teenagers who meet on an online forum. The film was passed 15 for a suicide theme and strong sex references.

The film deals with the dangers of online interaction, especially relating to vulnerable individuals. It deals with subjects such as bullying and sexual predators targeting the young, as well as websites and forums that showcase and promote suicide. There are scenes that feature a girl jumping out of a window, a young boy taking a drug overdose after he has been the victim of online bullying and another teenager hanging himself. However, none of these sequences linger on the fate of the victims or offer novel instructional detail. Furthermore, the film depicts the deaths as shocking and offers a critique of the malign influences that caused them. There is also a scene in which one of the leading characters deliberately cuts himself in the arm but this is contextualised by the audience knowing that he has a history of self-harming, which points to his mental state and explains his actions in the film's narrative. Again, no undue detail is presented and this, as well as the suicide scenes, meet the requirements of the BBFC Guidelines at 15 which state that dangerous behaviour (for example, hanging, suicide and self-harming) should not dwell on detail which could be copied . The Guidelines at 15 also state that No theme is prohibited provided the treatment is appropriate for 15 year olds . In the case of Chatroom , the appropriate treatment is provided by the warning elements of the film and by the highlighting of the dangers of an online world.

The strong sex references in the work occur in the context of online sex chat and paedophiles posing as children or teenagers to lure the unwary. However, these references also have contextual justification in terms of illustrating the potential dangers of the online world. At 15 , the BBFC's Guidelines state that There may be strong verbal references to sexual behaviour, but the strongest references are unlikely to be acceptable unless justified by context .

The film also contains infrequent strong language.

Chelsea Girls is a 1966 USA drama by Paul Morrissey and Andy Warhol.

Banned by the BBFC for 1967 cinema release and not released since.

Summary Notes

Lacking a formal narrative, Warhol's art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.

For four odd hours Warhol, using the double-screen technique, declares war against every sensory logic we have grown used to in the movies. Sometimes, the movie just doesn't move. Sometime it does, but at an odd speed.  But if you endure, your perception of the art of motion pictures is in for a ride! Depicting the lives of underground characters known from Lou Reed and Velvet Underground songs, this movie is not only cinematic beauty at its extreme, but also a fascinating documentation of an era in which modernist art reached its climax.

From IMDB. The movie had to be re-cut five times in order to achieve an R-rating. Most significant cuts include:

  • graphic sexual activity during the climactic orgy sequence
  • The death of a character named Annette The originally scripted scene showed her having her throat slowly pushed onto a pane of glass. The scene was filmed and very brutal, done all in one graphic cut. However, she shot was later replaced with her character's head split open in the front door. That scene was still trimmed heavily. In unrated versions the top of her head erupts and a splash of blood flies across the doorjamb.
  • Rod's death had more blood
  • Timmy's death was an on screen kill that featured gruesome spurting blood.
  • A character's death at the climatic orgy was nixed for time and MPAA constraints. A male character's throat was slashed open.

Summary review: Pretty damn entertaining

Children of the Corn 3 is pretty damn entertaining. Not as good as two, but still superior to the original and well worth watching. It's certainly never effective as a straight horror movie, but it's got plenty of camp appeal and some amusing gore.

Eli just ain't menacing, like Malachi was in the first one. Still, it's pretty awesome, with a nice scarecrow attack, a corncifiction, a big scary corn monster that eats a doll, some computer generated fireballs, a crazy agitated priest, a chick totally melting, a corn-thieving hobo who gets his comeuppance, icky bugs, a scary corn-bible and a glimpse into the mysterious world of international corn trade.

Summary Review : A Doll Possessed

This film has an interesting storyline with the spirit of a serial killer possessing a doll.

The special effects are quite good for their time and strangely enough are quite believable. Just don't turn the lights off and watch this movie or you will be looking over your shoulder for days watching out for your teddy bear with a knife in its hand.

This is the best Child's Play/Chucky movie of all time! It was actually HORROR. This movie deserves to be bought, great acting, great entertainment, great horror.

Child's Play 3 1991 UK/USA horror mystery thriller by Jack Bender.

Never cut in the US or UK. However it became an important part of UK censorship history when it got caught up in the James Bulger murder case. From article from en.wikipedia.org :

The film also has become controversial because it has been indirectly linked to the brutal murder of James Bulger. The killers, who were 10 years old at the time, were said to have imitated a scene in which one of Chucky's victims is splashed with blue paint. Although these allegations against the film have never been proven, the case has led to some new legislation for video films. Psychologist Guy Cumberbatch has stated, The link with a video was that the father of one of the boys -- Jon Venables -- had rented Child's Play 3 some months earlier. However, the police officer who directed the investigation, Albert Kirby, found that the son, Jon, was not living with his father at the time and was unlikely to have seen the film. Moreover, the boy disliked horror films---a point later confirmed by psychiatric reports. Thus the police investigation, which had specifically looked for a video link, concluded there was none

Chino Valdez is a loner horse breeder living in the old west. Partly a loner by choice, and partly because, being a 'half-breed', he finds himself unwelcome almost everywhere he goes. One day, a young runaway named Jimmy shows up at his door looking for work and a roof over his head. Reluctantly, Chino agrees to take him in and teach him the art of raising, breaking and breeding horses, until the pair finally begin to accept each other.

Review from US Amazon : Too Silly

This film is a pretty bad one. It has the aura of a late night erotic thriller but is just too silly.

If you are a Troma fan, you may be able to get through some of the silly parts. One of my favorite quotes in the film is Shawna Sand-Lamas You have the power.   She has my vote for funniest low budget beauty that cannot act at all. Her scenes look like she's in pain trying to get her lines out. Carmen Electra shines in this film though (probably due to her surrounding actors).

I was hoping for a more action filled superhero film in the lines of The Demolitionist and Black Scorpion, but it wasn't. As a matter of fact there isn't much butt stomping by Electra in her nice superhero outfit at all.

The film tries to take itself a little too seriously most of the time, when it could have been made to be a hilarious low budget sexy action film. It should appeal to people that like late night erotic thrillers and don't mind miniscule budget movies.

I really wasn't prepared for this film, or was I? I had been recommended it, and told it was disturbing, but it certainly had a massive effect on me.

Christiane F is the true story of a girl who gets seduced by the German nightlife and David Bowie, and slowly drifts onto heroin.

There are several disturbing parts of this movie. The heroin/prostitution scenes are disturbing, but I didn't get disturbed by these as much as I did the story. The media would have us believe that heroin users and dealers are monsters and don't have a right to live. The people in this movie are real, and easy to identify with.

I definitely recommend this movie

The BBFC commented:

This work was originally seen for advice in an unfinished form. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive a 15 certificate but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by making some cuts and visual reductions. When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, cuts had been made in two scenes.

  • Cuts involved the removal of a violent act [featuring bloody dental work] and subsequent discussion of this, with some bloody focus, reducing focus on bloody injuries, and

  • reducing sight of a character being impaled [with a stake].

With these changes having been made when the film was formally submitted, it was passed at 12A

From IMDb. The Director's Cut includes some general alternate/additional footage that was cut from the theatrical versions for pacing and for a PG-13 rating. Additional scenes include:

  • A earlier introduction to Kyra, being forced into one of the empty hellhound cages on cremetoris.
  • The sub-plot of the Furyan energy is completely restored, several instances of these scenes are visible in the trailer for the film but not contained in the theatrical version of the film.
  • Riddick, while in cryo-sleep aboard Toombs' Skif en-route to Helion Prime is approached in a vision by Shirah (Played by Kristin Lehman as in the game "Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay"), and she starts to tell him about Furya before he is interrupted by his arrival at Helion Prime.
  • The Purifier's speech to the captured people of Helion Prime is longer (Director David Twohy on the commentary comments that this is the complete version as originally intended).
  • Vaako and Dame Vaako's discussion about the Lord Marshall being promoted to full death is extended, continuing with him and her discussing his demise and foreplay.
  • After Dame Vaako queries Aereon about Riddick, she discusses what she learns with Vaako over a telepathy/communication with him on the transport.
  • The fight sequences between Riddick and the Necromonger armies on the surface of Crematoria is completely unedited, containing full sound effects of the fight and is more visually brutal.
  • After the fight on the surface of Crematoria, Riddick is surrounded by Necromongers and Vaako is about to shoot him when Shirah re-appears to him and reveals the truth about what happened on Furya, the revelation sending out a blast from Riddick, knocking all the soldiers down and leaving Riddick unconscious - A shot of this "blast" can be seen in the trailer.
  • The ending is more abrupt, Riddick says "you keep what you kill" instead of Vaako, and Aereon's voice-over is not included.

Summary Notes

A rash of bizarre murders in New York City seems to point to a group of grotesquely deformed vagrants living in the sewers. A courageous policeman, a photo journalist and his girlfriend, and a nutty bum, who seems to know a lot about the creatures, band together to try and determine what the creatures are and how to stop them.

However someone thought this extra material was a good idea and a Director's Cut was produced which has all the original gore, and then adds the new TV material, including:

  • Lauren talking to her neighbor on the steps inside the apartment building with the woman's son Justin.
  • Lauren talking to her boyfriend (John Heard) about her being pregnant and later showing them in bed together.
  • Captain Bosch discovering his wife's dead body with another policeman in knee-deep water near a sewer runoff pipe.

City of the Living Dead is a 1980 Italy horror by Lucio Fulci.
Starring Christopher George, Catriona MacColl and Carlo De Mejo. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for 1981 cinema release. This cut version was released on pre-cert video (without being listed as a video nasty). Further cut by the BBFC for VHS after the VRA. Later uncut on DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Summary Notes

In the small New England town of Dunwich, a priest commits suicide by hanging himself in the church cemetery which somehow opens the gates of hell allowing the dead to rise. Peter, a New York City reporter, teams up with a young psychic, named Mary, to travel to the town where they team up with another couple, psychiatrist Jerry and patient Sandra, to find a way to close the gates before All Saints Day or the dead all over the world will rise up and kill the living.

The film has a great atmosphere present throughout, which when combined with the effective sound track generates a feel that's perfect for a horror. The effects and make-up used in the film are great and would still hold up today even after all this time. There are a couple of great scenes in the film that will really make your stomach turn, and looking back it's possible to tell that they may have inspired more modern film makers.

The acting leaves a lot to be desired, and the script is far from perfect, but the sheer atmosphere alone is enough to compensate. But what counts the most in a film like this is the gore, and there is plenty of it here.

Summary Review: Thought-provoking

Andy is a new teacher and an inner city high school that is like nothing he has ever seen before. The students have to go through a metal detector when they go through the front door and everything is basically run by a tough kid named Peter Stegman. Soon, Andy and Stegman become enemies and Stegman will stop at nothing to protect his turf and drug dealing business.

Class of 1984 is an entertaining and thought-provoking combination of the Vigilante and High School Drama flick. The film describes the punks as the next generation of important people. It was done as a reworking of Blackboard Jungle (it is much better than Cruel Intentions and more gutsy). Class of 1984 is an eerie movie because the depiction of unsafe Urban high schools, metal detectors at schools, and security guards would be a reality eight years later in many high school cities. It is a courageous movie that isn't afraid to deal with important issues.

It seems that this cut has been adopted as the director's preferred version. From article in trade magazine RRP by Allan Bryce:

Mosiac's new version is almost uncut, restoring all but a few seconds of the notorious rape scene, and director [Mark L] Lester is delighted about this. That scene is not played for gratuitous thrills. It shows rape for what it is, an ugly, nasty act. And it's necessary to show it because we understand what drives Perry King's character to commit such a brutal act of revenge against his tormentors."

The director, Mark Lester, however posted a comment about the UK DVD on the Anchor Bay forum:

The UK version being released by Mosaic is the exact version of the US release by Anchor Bay. This is the original US theatrical released picture and is approved personally by me as the final director cut of the film.

This is a gritty view of the future with a kind of ironic humour.

The cast shine with the likes of Malcolm MacDowell, Pam Grier and Stacey Keach and in the leading role is charasmatic Bradley Gregg.

Everyone is having fun with this movie and it is this attitude that makes it so watchable. There's a pumping rock soundtrack including Nine Inch Nails. And great lines ooze from the script.

Promotional Material

The players that inspired a generation: The Class of '92 is a cinematic documentary detailing the rise to prominence and global sporting superstardom of six supremely talented young Manchester United footballers (David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil and Gary Neville). The film covers the period 1992-1999, culminating in Manchester United's European Cup triumph, and dramatically interweaves and mirrors the highs and lows of its football odyssey with the immense social and cultural changes taking place in Britain at the time. At the heart of this film is the tale of how six 14-year-old working class lads from diverse backgrounds came together to play for the same club, became the spine of the most lauded team in world football, and who throughout their period of unparalleled success remained best mates. The film has the unique distinction of having secured unprecedented access to all six players, and gains new and revealing insights about each individual and this special period in British football and cultural history along with fantastic archive footage. In addition, there are numerous other high profile interviewees including Zinedine Zidane, Tony Blair, Mani from the Stone Roses, Eric Cantona and Danny Boyle.

Classe Tous Risques DVD Blu ray

Classe Tous Risques is a 1960 France/Italy crime romance by Claude Sautet.
With Lino Ventura, Sandra Milo and Jean-Paul Belmondo. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

BBFC category cuts for an A rated cinema release in 1963, titled The Big Risk, Uncut from 2013.

Promotional Material

Highly rated by Jean-Pierre Melville, Robert Bresson and Bertrand Tavernier, and described as the greatest of all French gangster movies by the Guardian, Classe tous risques is an astonishing crime film that was the dazzling directorial debut of the influential Claude Sautet (1924-2000), better known for his later films Un Coeur en Hiver (1992) and Nelly et Monsieur Arnaud (1995)

Starring the great Italian-born character actor Lino Ventura as a once-powerful Parisian gangster who has grown weary of his exile in Italy and longs to return home to his wife and two small children in Paris. In order to finance this ambition he decides to pull one last job - boldly executed in broad daylight on the streets of Milan. His getaway proves dangerous but when he enlists the help of his old partners-in-crime, they are reluctant to risk their own safety and instead send a complete stranger - the fresh-faced Eric Stark (Jean-Paul Belmondo) - to escort their former comrade to Paris.

The cuts list was the same for the DVD and VHS but the DVD was edited differently and more untidily.

The  additional 16s of BBFC cuts were:

  • Several punches and a kick to Gabe's (Sylvester Stallone) face and chest are cut in the confrontation with Kynette (Lyon).
  • A scene was altered where Kynette brandishes his knife in Gabe's face. The changes were to tone down sadism and knifeplay
  • The impalement of Kynette was further reduced.
  • Three bullets hitting pilot Kristel were reduced to one.
  • One close up of piton hitting Travers (Rex Linn) which Gabe fires while trapped under the ice was removed, leaving two hits.

Note that previous commentators have suggested that a deleted scene of Hal shooting Travers was a cut when in fact it was the Director's decision to replace the medium range shooting with a more exciting close range volley of pitons

  • A bloodied close up of the doomed Qualen's face was removed

James Ferman referred to these cuts in a lecture. He showed a clip which had Craig Fairbrass using a man's head as a football. Fairbrass, was a very popular character in London's East End, and it hurt Ferman to deprive him of his spectacular run-up to the prostrate victim before kicking the man into goal. Ferman took out most of his kicks, but preserved the entire sequence for his private collection and has shown it with great effect to MPs and others. I show them the cut version first, which looks bad enough. Then I show them the uncut version. That clinches it: the MPs all cheer the censor's team.

While in prison, Alex learns of an experimental program in which convicts are programed to detest violence. If he goes through the program his sentence will be reduced and he will be back on the streets sooner than expected.

  UK: In 1973 Stanley Kubrick withdrew the film from release in the UK due to his concerns about the (ultra) violence.  However his concern does not appear to have spread elsewhere as it is readily available in the US and most European countries. I've since heard rumours that he withdrew the film for reasons of his own safety after receiving death threats from nutters. The film was restored to UK distribution after Kubrick's death in 1999.

See article from guardian.co.uk

Anthony Burgess, the author of A Clockwork Orange , said in 1973 that he thought Stanley Kubrick's controversial film based on his novel was boring in places and should have been more violent.

Burgess said that in the film Kubrick projected violence for its own sake, and that was damnable . He added: It was a good film, though boring in places, but it should have been more violent, because only by piling on the violence could the absurdity of violence be shown.

We should have been able to reach a stage in violence where we were just laughing at it. This is what I tried to do in the book.

See  extract from  thewrap.com which outlines some of the background to Kubrik's decision to withdraw the film from distribution:

Watching the completed film, Burgess didn't hold it against Kubrick when his wife, repulsed by its choreographed sex and violence, asked to leave the screening room after a mere ten minutes. Initially, he even managed to tell the press, This is one of the great books that has been made into a great film.

Maybe he meant what he said. Or maybe he simply wanted to persuade Kubrick to direct his screenplay Napoleon Symphony. In the following weeks, as well as years, Burgess would radically reassess his opinion of A Clockwork Orange the movie.

Bruce Lee has just died. Aided by the brilliant Professor Lucas, cells from the martial arts master's body are removed and grown into three adult Bruce Lee clones. The three are sent out to battle crime, with one sent to take on a gold smuggler, and the other two teaming up to shut down an evil mad scientist.

The best that can be said for the movie is that a few reviewers found it so bad as to be funny. Other reviewers agreed with the bad but didn't even find it funny.
