  • This film was originally seen for advice, at which stage the company was informed it was likely to be classified 15 but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by reducing two scenes featuring blood and injury detail. When the film was submitted for formal classification, these scenes had been reduced acceptably and the film was therefore classified 12A.

Coffy Blu ray Pam Grier

Coffy is a 1973 USA action crime thriller by Jack Hill.
With Pam Grier, Booker Bradshaw and Robert DoQui. YouTube icon BBFC link BBFC link IMDb
Initially banned by the BBFC for 1973 cinema release. Resubmitted with cuts and then further cut by the BBFC for 1974 cinema release. Passed 18 uncut in 1988. Uncut in the US

Summary Review : Blaxploitation classic!

Coffy is a nurse whose younger sister gets involved in drugs and is severely injured by contaminated heroin. Coffy sets out on a mission of vengeance and vigilante justice, killing drug dealers, pimps, and mobsters who cross her path.

Maxim magazine lists Coffy as number 7 on its list of the 50 best B-movies of all time, and there can clearly be no mistake about its status as a B-movie. Pam Grier shines in this hilarious action-packed blaxploitation flick where she first got her name as a 'black pin-up queen' during the early 70's.

This brilliant film mixes comedy right in there with the action. From the campy catfight scenes when Coffy dumps a salad bowl onto a blonde girl's head, to when King George makes his first appearance and steps out of his car in his pimp outfit, complete right down to the feather in his hat! The action is fairly consistent. There are a lot of guns firing off and endless catfights.

Thanks to Craig who wrote to the BBFC who responded:

Coffey was initially rejected because the BBFC felt too many cuts would be required to make it acceptable at X and that these cuts would damage the film. However, the following year the distributor submitted a heavily re-edited version (renamed Coffy), which was finally passed X, I believe after further cuts.

Multiple variants with UK getting the worst of those available with pre-cuts to sex and violence. Sex scenes exist in clothed and unclothed softcore versions. The nudity is via body doubles though. The BBFC waived its previous cuts for 2017 18 rated Blu-ray.

Summary Comments: Loopey

A masked killer stalks an institution for mentally disturbed rich women.

This film is not on the level of gialli directed by Mario Bava, Lucio Fulci, or Dario Argento. However, it is so loopey and bizarre that it is actually fascinating!

Slaughter Hotel's original ad campaign played upon the idea that the film is Based on a True Story , which means it really wasn't.

Review from US Amazon : Entertaining

This is not the greatest Bronson movie ever made but it is nonetheless entertaining. It does have one spectacular car chase or rather motorcycle pursuit on winding roads of south of France.

There are some nice performances and it's fun to see James Mason play a villain although he's a likable one. Liv Ullman is fine and Jill Ireland plays a hilarious rich hippie chick.

There are the usual plot absurdities but Bronson is the reason we watch these movies and he's no different here. He's a very likeable tough guy trying very hard to be nice around bunch of incorrigible villains.

Come Play with Me is a 1977 UK sex comedy by George Harrison Marks.
Starring Irene Handl, Alfie Bass and George Harrison Marks. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for 1977 cinema release. The cuts have persisted to all releases since.

Summary Notes

A health-resort where both the clients and the employees easily take their clothes off and have a little fun is the setting of this sex-comedy.

The film was massively promoted by men's magazines associated with David Sullivan, eg Playbirds and Whitehouse. The advertising predictable suggested that the film was somehow harder than the soft softcore that the BBFC allowed at that time.

  • Reel 4 - Cabaret dancer's act was considerably reduced to remove initial writhing and caressing of her groin over G-string, her writhing alone in 'riding' copulatory movement, the close up of her pubic as she pours liquid over herself, and the shot of her wide-open legs as she covers vulva with her hand.
  • Reel 4 - As Clapworthy urinates into wash basin, initial thrusting shots of man copulating with woman on massage couch were removed.
  • Reel 9 - In the copulation scene at the beginning of the reel (before Rodney and Christine's eating sex scene), all shots of his buttocks thrusting between her legs and her legs wrapped round him were removed.
  • Reel 9 - In later sex scene (after Rodney and Christine's food scene), woman's dialogue line "Go down harder" and sight of him performing cunnilingus on her were removed. Her head reaction orgasm remained.

According to dvdcompare.net the R1 America MGM is missing 1s. In the sequence where Vincent Price and Peter Lorre are attempting to keep a supposedly-dead Basil Rathbone inside his coffin. Price and Lorre finally "succeed" by both sitting on top of the coffin. On the DVD, this scene immediately cuts to one of Price and Lorre suddenly hitting the floor for no apparent reason. This is cut: Rathbone's character is obviously still alive, because he suddenly pushes the coffin lid upward with all his might, and you see Price and Lorre flying up and backwards onto the floor.

The recent region 2 Optimum release includes the scene in question intact.

Banned by the BBFC for the 1976 cinema release

See article from templeofschlock.blogspot.com :

The softcore film was originally made as The Coming of Seymour but was released in the US as The Fabulous Fanny to relate it to a cartoon strip in Playboy. It was not a success and was reworked with extra scenes and re-released in 1977 as The Boob Tube Strikes Again!

The film is about a couple interacting with an X rated film on hotel TV. The film within a film is about the voluptuous cartoon character of Fanny, who dominates the daydreams of young Seymour. This sexual obsession stands in the way of his siring a child that will enable him to inherit the family fortune. Seymour thoroughly enjoys his attempts to impregnate as many beautiful women as possible, but each time he is unable to reach that million dollar climax.

The BBFC commented in their 2006 Annual Report:

Commando had previously required two cuts for '18' to reduce strong bloody injury detail. These cuts were waived when the work was resubmitted, both to reflect public expectations following the Board's public consultations in recent years and because the cut scenes are now considered to have little impact on the tone of the work as a whole or its likely effect on an audience.

The MPAA cuts for an R rating were all during the tool shed scene:

  1. The pitchfork killing originally features additional reaction from the soldier as he dies and an extra shot as he slumps to the floor
  2. Schwarzenegger throws a second circular saw blade which embeds itself into the neck of a bad guy. Blood and reaction from the soldier as he puts is hands to his neck has been cut
  3. The guy who is axed in the groin is shown in agony longer in the original.
  4. The guy with the severed arm was originally seen lying on the floor, stump in the air, screaming for a second or two longer and for an extra shot when is crawling on the ground.

18 85:33s UK: A 26s pre-cut Theatrical Version was passed 18 without further BBFC cuts for:
  • 2001 20th Century Fox R2 DVD

The pre-cuts which the UK (and R2 Scandinavian and R4 Australian) releases contain, have their origin in Germany. These cuts were imposed on German theatrical and video releases by the German censors,  FSK, in order to achieve an "FSK 18" rating. So these cut masters must have served FOX to produce their UK DVDs.

Thanks to Luis who has specified the cuts are as follow:

  • 0:02:00 - Before the credits Cooke (Bill Duke), disguised as a garbage man, shots a man from a short distance. A scene in which he approaches the body and shoots it on the chest several times was cut. On the DVD we see him getting near and then lowering the gun and going back.
  • 0:21:17 - Matrix (Schwarzenegger) hits the guy with him on the plane with an elbow. Then pulls a blanket over him to make it appear that he's sleeping. On the uncut version he pulls the head of the man down gently and breaks his neck, before covering him. In the censored version, the man is killed with a single blow or maybe died from a heart attack during his sleep!
  • 0:45:30 - Matrix throws Cooke against some piece of wooden furniture on the floor (the impact is not seen in any version). We hear him moaning, and then Matrix gets near him. We then see a close shot framing Cooke's face, foaming a bit of blood from the mouth, and the wood spike coming from his chest. Matrix asks for his daughter: "Where is she?" then pulling the tie of the dying man: "Talk!" Another close shot of the face and the bloody mouth and chest. The DVD version cuts both close shots while also removing both lines of dialogue from Swarzenegger. It also cuts part of the moaning we hear from Cooke.
  • 1:06:50 - Following to the fight scenes with the Big Ugly Hispanics (BUH), a cut is made when Matrix stabs one on the stomach
  • 1:07:09 - A BUH is killed with a knife on the throat. The frontal shot is cut (it's not very bloody originally).
  • 1:07:17 - Matrix killing another soldier is missing
  • 1:08:34 - 5 shots cut to remove the one in which BUH is machine-gunned.
  • 1.10:20 - After some more shooting with the machine gun, Matrix grabs his pistol. But before that shot, two others are cut: one has more BUHs being hit at a distance (probably the less violent deaths in the film...); another one is a close shot of a BUH being killed with two bullets on the chest (with some blood spilling).
  • 1:11:38 - Here we're in the famous tool shed sequence.. A soldier approaches the door and opens it. He's stabbed by a pitchfork on the chest. This was cut in this version, even though they left the more violent scene in which a man is killed with a circular saw that cuts part of the top of his head.
  • 1:11:40 - After the second saw, Matrix grabs an axe and a machete, he uses the axe between the legs of a BUH and then proceeds to the last Hispanic. He grabs his arm and cuts it with the machete. 5 shots where removed here, eliminating both deaths. On the censored version, after the last saw we see Matrix immediately grabbing a machine gun from the floor.
  • 1:19:50 - During the "releasing some steam" scene, after Matrix throws a metal pipe at Bennett there's originally a close-up shot of the bad guy's chest with the pipe against it (there's no blood). We then see him moaning and spilling some blood from the mouth. The camera slowly pulls back framing Bennett and the pipe releasing steam. The censored version is  cut before the pipe enters the frame, passing for a shot of Matrix, which then delivers the line "Let out some steam, Bennett!" Much moaning is also cut with this; so, just like Cooke, Bennett has a much faster death with a bit less suffering.

Originally cut for an MPAA R rating The uncut version has never been released. All British releases further cut by the BBFC (except one that got away, see *note). There is a shortened US version and a longer international version with a couple of variants between the two.

Summary Notes

A barbarian trained in the arts of war joins with thieves in a quest to solve the riddle of steel and find the sorcerer responsible for the genocide of his people in this faithful adaptation of Robert E. Howard's sword and sorcery adventures. This film briefly sparked a wave of fantasy films including the sequel, Conan the Destroyer, in the early 80s.

X Rated
  US: The MPAA initially rated the film X. Very extensive and scattered cuts were made totalling about 5 minutes. These occurred during the course of 3 iterations of resubmissions. The resulting R rated version has become definitive and there's no sign of any restoration of the original X Rated version.

There's lots on the topic gathered from comments from the film makers at conventions and on commentary tracks etc. See conancompletist.com . The cuts seem to have effected the following scenes:

  • Blood and gore removed from the battle of the Mounds
  • Killing of Conan's mother mostly deleted
  • Significant cuts to the violence in the snake feast scene. A lot of careful censorship by camera angle was used to limit nudity, but this was implemented in the original before submission to the MPAA.

Malik points out a Camel, Conan talks to the camel, the Camel spits white goo over Conan. The UK Version then cuts to the next scene. The Uncut US version shows Conan smack the camel on the top of its head making it crumble to the floor. It was probably cut due to the issue of cruelty to animals.
  3. The Horse tripping of Zula (Grace Jones) and Bombatta (Wilt Chamberlain) during the Elite Guard attack is trimmed

Concussion Concussion is a 2015 USA / Australia / UK sport drama by Peter Landesman.

See article from nytimes.com

In dozens of studio emails unearthed by hackers, Sony executives; the director, Peter Landesman; and representatives of Mr. Smith discussed how to avoid antagonizing the N.F.L. by altering the script and marketing the film more as a whistle-blower story, rather than a condemnation of football or the league. Dwight Caines, the president of domestic marketing at Sony Pictures, wrote in an email on Aug. 6, 2014, to three top studio executives about how to position the movie:

Will is not anti football (nor is the movie) and isn't planning to be a spokesman for what football should be or shouldn't be but rather is an actor taking on an exciting challengeWe'll develop messaging with the help of N.F.L. consultant to ensure that we are telling a dramatic story and not kicking the hornet's nest.

Summary review: Mockumentary

A mockumentary showing the process of casting a porn movie, the legalities of underage wanna-be participants and the effects of becoming a porn star.

Trying to play it as an actual documentary, it doesn't really work but it is interesting nonetheless. A so-called snuff element comes into it at the very end but is rather disappointing. The only redeeming feature is actual deleted scenes from Wes Craven's Last House On The Left, which they play up as actual snuff footage.

Summary Review: Hardcore Inserts

Famous undercover journalist Emanuelle teams with her friend Cora Norman to uncover a white slave ring that traffics in women kidnapped from various locales around the world.

Emanuelle Around the World is one of the more shocking of the Emanuelle series, right up there with Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals and Emanuelle in America. Effective on an undeniably crass but immediate level, this is the kind of cinema that drips animal savagery and guilty pleasure -- exactly the type of subversive cinema that has moral police gasping in the isles (or masturbating in the closet).

The Euro XXX version of the film features a few brief clips of penetration & fellatio in orgy sequences (not with the stars of the show, however), but generally the sex portrayed is of the standard soft-core variety.

Summary Review: Truly strange

Set in a land ruled by an evil sorceress called Ocron and her cruel followers. Two warriors unite to bring her down but she too knows about them and seeks to destroy them.

Lucio Fulci's stab at the fantasy genre is truly strange and highly enjoyable and therefore a must see for fans of Fulci.

It's a lively affair with much action as well as some of the most strangest looking monsters you're ever likely to see.

Being a Fulci film you are guaranteed gory moments and Conquest doesn't disappoint as there are bloody set pieces throughout. Yes the effects at times are laughable but it all adds to the fun and it's accompanied by a pounding score by Claudio Simonetti from Goblin.

The US uncut version includes alternate opening and ending scenes, which were excised due to poor audience reaction and a need to keep a PG rating. In the opening, a police patrol tracks and kills a gorilla, which is shown to have numerous cuts and welts. Breck later references a gorilla who turned on his master and was killed.

In the ending, Caesar allows the apes to beat Breck and the other humans to death. Breck does not cower, but faces his executioners. Lisa does not say "No" and Caesar makes no speech counseling compassion. There are also additional shots of apes and humans bleeding from gunshots, and apes stacking bodies of riot police.

Contamination DVD  

Contamination is a 1980 Italian horror by Luigi Cozzi
With Ian McCulloch, Louise Marleau and Marino Masé.
YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
A pre-cut version was banned as a video nasty in 1983. Passed 15 uncut for DVD. Cut and uncut versions exist in the US

Summary Review : Odd and cheesy

A former astronaut helps a government agent and a police detective track the source of mysterious alien pod spores, filled with lethal flesh-dissolving acid, to a South American coffee plantation controlled by alien pod clones.

This was a very odd and cheesy Italian gore flick, it was a mix of horror and science fiction and it was directed by Luigi Cozzi.

While Contamination was a decent film I just didn't think it was that good, the first half was very promising as we get to see some impressive gore scenes with the exploding stomachs but then the second half kind of loses steam and becomes slightly boring. The green alien eggs were a knock off from Alien and you could tell that this film was trying to cash in on its success which was typical of Italian horror films at the time, some of these films were of course great cause you can't take them too seriously and they were usually gorier than the original films.

Contamination has some pretty bad acting and the direction from Luigi Cozzi was rather low-key with some scenes looking a bit too dark, the pacing was a bit uneven despite having a great opening sequence which had some great suspense and the film also has a weak plot, but if your a gore hound then you won't mind since there were plenty of great gore scenes.

Summary Review: Super erotic and homo-erotic

Retired professor of American origin lives solitary life in luxurious palazzo in Rome He is confronted by vulgar Italian marchesa and her lover,  daughter and daughter's boyfriend renting an apartment on upper floor of his palazzo. From this point his quiet routine is turned into chaos by his tenants' machinations, and everybody's life is taking unexpected but inevitable turn.

Lancaster, as you would expect, is exceptional. His reluctant inclusion into a lively family dynamic is superbly rendered and absolutely believable. Filmed in stagnant shots within cramped quarters, the characters seemed all but trapped with one another.

This is Visconti's penultimate film which marks the culmination of his career as a master of Italian cinema. Super erotic and homo-erotic scenes that are humorous and titillating.

One of the most influential Soul Cinema pix ever to shoot onto the screen, Cotton Comes To Harlem spawned the Blaxploitation boom by delivering a "refreshingly different detective action yarn with soul and humor" (Cue) and an unbeatable mix of "humor and excitement!" (Los Angeles Herald-Examiner). Detectives "Gravedigger" Jones (Godfrey Cambridge) and "Coffin Ed" Johnson (Raymond St. Jacques) are on a case investigating a crooked Reverend (Calvin Lockhart) - a brother whose "Back to Africa" campaign is nothing more than a big scam. But when $87,000 of the Reverend s laundered cash gets stashed in a bail of cotton, Gravedigger and Coffin find they're not the only dudes suddenly interested in soaring cotton prices as they come up against the mafia, the police, black militants and street thugs in an all-out dash to nab $87,000 cash. One of the handful of films directed by acting great Ossie Davis (Gordon s War) with a top-notch supporting cast that includes Redd Foxx, Cleavon Little, J.D. Cannon, John Anderson and Eugene Roche.

Summary Review:  The brilliant Ingrid Pitt

In medieval Europe aging Countess Elisabeth rules harshly with the help of lover Captain Dobi. Finding that washing in the blood of young girls makes her young again she gets Dobi to start abducting likely candidates. The Countess - pretending to be her own daughter - starts dallying with a younger man, much to Dobi's annoyance. The disappearances cause mounting terror locally, and when she finds out that only the blood of a virgin does the job, Dobi is sent out again with a more difficult task.

Director Peter Sasdy may have let the brilliant Ingrid Pitt run a little wilder amongst the drab sets with the roles of Bathory young and old, but her joy at hamming it up helps place this as one of the better later Hammer productions. Nigel Green and Maurice Denham give twitching support.

Countess Perverse Original Directors Cut

The Perverse Countess is a 1974 France horror thriller by Jesús Franco.
With Alice Arno, Howard Vernon, Kali Hansa. IMDb

The Director's Cut is the original version before Franco tried various edits to try and sell it. French and Italian versions include hardcore inserts with Alice Arno and Lina Romay.

Summary Review: Sordid flesh festivities

Two wealthy aristocrats lure a virginal girl to a Spanish island for a night of sex, death and cannibalism.

Half the film is devoted to Sapphic sessions and sordid flesh festivities just shy of pornography. Franco is the ultimate cinematic voyeur and his films appeal to those with voyeuristic tendencies, and what they always lack in plot development offer prurient interest and degenerate lust as compensation.

Franco stable mate Howard Vernon's back as his usual creepy self, the baron chef with unusual culinary skills and a smile that would make your skin crawl.

All in all, I found this to be a really enjoyable watch

Summary Notes

Since a road accident left him with serious facial and bodily scarring, a former TV scientist has become obsessed by the marriage of motor-car technology with what he sees as the raw sexuality of car-crash victims. The scientist, along with a crash victim he has recently befriended, sets about performing a series of sexual acts in a variety of motor vehicles, either with other crash victims or with prostitutes whom they contort into the shape of trapped corpses. Ultimately, the scientist craves a suicidal union of blood, semen, and engine coolant, a union with which he becomes dangerously obsessed.

Summary Review: Brave Attempt

The film adaptation, directed by David Cronenberg, becomes a futuristic love story set in the present . James (James Spader) and Catherine (Deborah Kara-Ungar) are a married couple so filled with inertia that they are desperate for some emotional connection by any means necessary. After a series of extra martial encounters they find themselves attracted to a group of disturbed members of a bizarre car-crash sect who enact famous car crashes for kicks. The pair soon find themselves willing accomplices in a tableaux of violence and desire until finally they attain some provisional approximation of actual love. Kara-Ungar's portrayal of Catherine exemplifies perfectly the icy detachment of a woman who appears to be observing herself from another galaxy.

Crash is, above all, a brave attempt to explore an almost un-bearable subject - the death of affect and our unconscious desire for violence.

Perhaps in the light of the continuing media onslaught against the film, Westminster Council - who had previously given permission for the film to be premiered in their area as part of the 1996 London Film Festival - parted company with the BBFC at this point, insisting that cuts should now be made to the film before it was shown in the West End. The distributors declined to make cuts solely for screenings in Westminster and the film was therefore effectively banned from screens in the West End, including Leicester Square. However, cinema goers could easily see the film in neighbouring Camden where the council allowed the film to play uncut with its BBFC certificate

Summary Review: Psycho Genre

This is one of the last examples of Hammer's psycho genre, similar in style and plotline to those the company made in the early sixties such as Maniac, Paranoiac, Nightmare and Scream of Fear/Taste of Fear.

It probably isn't one of Hammer's greatest achievements but is by no means one of the worst. The photography is very effective in places and the setting is quite haunting in a picturesque kind of way.

Summary Review: A lurid masterpiece

Ken Russell's masterpiece has cult movie written all over it. A lurid, extreme sex-and-violence fantasy porno-movie.

In the bravest and best performance of her career, Kathleen Turner plays the mystery woman who is Joanna, prim fashion designer by day and China Blue, the fantasy hooker to end all fantasy hookers, by night.

Her nemesis is Anthony Perkin's psychopathic preacher with the razor-sharp dildo. His is the kind of performance that goes beyond mere acting into some kind of crazy stratosphere all it's own.

 Barry Sandler's script is brilliant.

I seem to recall the cut having to do with a drugs joke (Paul Hogan pours cocaine into a basin of water and puts a towel over his head)

From the 1987 BBFC Annual Report:

Cuts to the comic scene of cocaine-snorting in the video of Crocodile Dundee, one of the most popular cinema films of 1986-87. Here small trims were required to remove not only the actual sight of sniffing, which on video now happens off-screen, but all dialogue reference to the nature of the substance by the sympathetic leading lady, who on film suggested an uncritical attitude towards the recreational use of cocaine. When the film was classified in early 1986, cocaine was not a major drug of abuse in Britain, and the scene was found acceptable because of its attractive comic tone. A year later, when the video was submitted, cocaine use had become a problem even for teenagers, and caution was called for in respect of a scene that might be viewed in the family setting for many years to come.

With Koo Stark, Martin Potter and Lydia Lisle. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

2:46s cut by the BBFC for 1977 cinema release and 1986 VHS. Cut by 19s for 1994 VHS. Uncut for 2012 DVD. US releases used the UK cut and then the uncut version.

Summary Review: Koo Stark is good as Justine

Justine is a nubile young virgin cast out of a French orphanage and thrust into a depraved world of prostitution.

She slips into a life of debauchery, torture, whipping, slavery and salaciousness. Meanwhile, her brazen, flirtatious and liberated sister Juliette ironically receives nothing but happiness and reward for her wanton behaviour.

Koo Stark is good as Justine, innocent, naive, and of course, beautiful. The film has great period detail is beautifully shot.

Thanks to Daniel, May 2008: Subliminally Different

Has anyone else noticed that although the new director's cut recently released in the UK restores the previously censored subliminal footage, the footage itself is different. In the original version, the footage was darkish but still distinct and in colour. In the new version it's bright, scratchy and in black & white! It doesn't even look like the same footage, and is clearly discernibly during normal playback which was not the case in the original version. Is it still genuine hardcore footage?  It appears Channel 5's uncut screening was of even more value than I first thought.

Censorship Reversed?

Now Cruising has been released on DVD for the first time. First off, the movie has been re-mastered and looks like a different film. What was murky or muffled before, now is crystal clear, especially the soundtrack.

Presumably this is the undoing of the censorship required for a US R Rating. William Friedkin spoke of MPAA censorship and cuts to obtain an R for Cruising. See  article from  clickonline.com

William Friedkin : Darkening or bits of smoke over a shot. I've done that with Cruising, where I went back 50 times before I got an R.

CLICK Magazine : Was it worth it?

William Friedkin: Well I'm happy the film was out but without their interference and small-mindedness and their censorship which is what it is. They hate that word. If they read that I've called them censors they will freak out.

  • 2003 FilmFour DVD not released

The BBFC commented:

  • Three compulsory cuts for 18 required to remove sight of explicit anal penetration by penis in two murder scenes

Presumably these cuts are to the much talked about subliminal shots.

Note that when Channel 4 screened The Celluloid Closet a few years ago as part of a gay film season, this documentary (a survey of homosexuality in the movies) included clips from this film, one of which was the cut sequence of (almost) subliminal anal penetration building up to a murder. These were fairly rapid film inserts, but you couldn't fail to notice them.

UK: Passed 18 after 39s of BBFC cuts for:
  • 1997 Warner Maverick Directors VHS

The BBFC cuts were:

  • 30 seconds were removed from the 1st murder, 7 shots. About 19 seconds removed of the killer gliding the knife over the victim's body. To bridge the gap, a shot which turns up later, (the killer grabbing something to tie the victim up with) is run here instead. 2 more shots removed of the killer tying up the victim. During the stabbing, 4 shots were removed, 2 of these shots were subliminal images showing hardcore anal penetration.
  • ~29minutes into the film, a camera pan across one of the gay bars has lost 6 seconds (Just before the guy asks Pacino about the hankie).

There still exists one other subliminal shot during the peepshow murder, the image is so dark it looks like nothing. It's cut into the shot of the knife going into the victim's back.

Summary Notes

In Elizabethan England, a wicked lord massacres nearly all the members of a coven of witches, earning the enmity of their leader, Oona. Oona calls up a magical servant, a "banshee", to destroy the lord's family. (The "banshee" of this tale bears no resemblance to the normal usage of the term!)

With Jackson Beck, Pamela Gruen and Allen Garfield. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Summary Notes

Private detective takes on a case and gets mixed up in murder, sex and blackmail.

Cry Uncle! is a real curiosity piece...a raunchy, sex- and naked body-filled detective yarn with decent acting, some genuine laughs, some amazingly tasteless scenes, and one brief bit of hardcore porn involving a 65-year-old man. Oh, yeah, and it was directed by the guy who would eventually bring you Rocky and The Karate Kid.
