One night of 1881, Doc Holliday, a famous poker gambler, enters the 'No Name Saloon'. There, he challenges a man to poker, betting his horse against his opponent's wife. Doc wins and from now on, Katie Fisher, also known as Katie Elder, will follow him wherever he goes. Their next destination is Tombstone, where the law is represented by Sheriff Wyatt Earp. When they arrive, the election campaign is in full swing. Earp runs for candidate but the Clantons, a family gang of outlaw cowboys, are not among his keenest supporters. Conflict erupts following the failure of some shadowy bargaining and Doc decides to join Wyatt and his brothers. The four of them gather at the O.K. Corral where the seven Clanton brothers are waiting for them.

  • 1996 BBC Worldwide VHS

The American spin-off of Doctor Who, according to the BBFC, contained scenes of irrelevant violence which would have been unacceptable in Britain for any category lower than 15, so for the sake of the youngsters it was cut for a 12 as follows:

  1. 4 s of Chang Lee's gang firing at the departing car.
  2. 22 s of Chang Lee and his two friends trying to avoid being shot, with only Chang Lee ultimately remaining alive.
  3. 5 s of the third and fourth gunmen aiming at Lee. (In the UK video we only see the first two, following on from the deleted 22 seconds of material that explains where Chang Lee's two friends have miraculously disappeared to!)
  4. 8 s of the gunmen firing at the newly-materialized TARDIS. (In the UK video a reaction shot of the gunmen - taken from material earlier cut - is used to bridge the gap between the TARDIS appearing and the Doctor stepping out of it!)
  5. 15-20s cut from the operating scene. From the moment that Grace's operation starts to go wrong the material has been quite substantially re-edited, so much so that the music has had to be tinkered about with in order to disguise this. The re-edit is quite good, and unlike the earlier gun- battle is quite unobtrusively done. Nevertheless, it considerably tones down the impact of the scene. The shots of Grace trying to pull the probe out have been cut to a minimum, and her reference
  6.  to its having snapped off and remained stuck in the Doctor have gone. The attempts to resuscitate the Doctor have been cut back, and his final scream has been completely excised - he never seen to regain consciousness.
  7. 1s The close-up shot of the Master actually twisting Chang Lee's head is cut. Thus on the UK version we cut straight from the shot of the Master caressing Chang Lee to those of the Doctor screaming and the body falling.

Summary Notes

After his mistress is murdered a Mafia leader goes after the killer with a bloody vengeance. Soon after the hunt begins, a gang war ensues.

The pacing of The Don Is Dead is excellent. Each scene is tightly cut but nothing is rushed. Whether an action scene or a whispered conversation, everything is given as much time as necessary but nothing more. The shootings and bombings - of which there are many - are done properly: in other words quickly but credibly.

Fleischer demonstrates in The Don Is Dead that he was a master film director.

Cut for an MPAA R rating and for UK cinema release. The pre-cert video looks likely to have been the cut UK cinema version and was seized by police during the video nasties moral panic. Uncut in the US in an unrated version.

Summary Review:  It's Nasty

A deeply disturbed photographer and Vietnam veteran, named Kirk Smith, terrorizes Los Angeles by going around strangling lingerie-clad young women in their homes. He  taunts Lindsay Gale, a young psychologist, by calling her on a radio call-in show to describe his sexual hang-ups and misogynistic ways.

The movie's nasty and what there is of a plot is goofy. But Nicholas Worth scares the hell out of me every time I watch this. At once smug and terrified, forceful and helpless, his whimpering panic-attack-tantrum gets right into my guts and makes me identify with this obscene morbid beefy creature.

The movie lets you learn just enough about the victims to experience their fear and pain with maximum possible sympathy and intensity, and the sarcastic detective and other incidental characters get some hilarious lines.

Summary Review : A Bit Lacklustre

A slasher film about a victim of child abuse (Dan Grimaldi) who grows up to become a maniacal construction worker. He stalks women at discos, takes them home, then hangs them upside-down in a special steel-walled room and sets them on fire.

Don't Go in the House gets off to a fairly good start, but after the first murder scene things begin to slowly fall a apart and it goes from a good movie to an average movie that never is able to get off the ground.

The screenplay written by Joseph Ellison, Ellen Hammill and Joseph R. Masefield starts off well enough with some good insight into the mind of the villain, but there comes a point to where the story never moves forward and in a sense it feels like the same scene is playing out over and over again.

Don't Go in the House isn't a terrible film, but it's just a bit lackluster, while it does have it's moments it just never reaches its full potential.

Summary Review: Wonderfully Bad

Two members of a superhuman and pre-historic tribe abuse the treasured secret of eternal youth. They are cursed to an eternity of old age with no chance to ever die. Now, in present day Los Angeles, their only hope to recapture eternal youth is the ritualistic sacrifice of a 16-year-old female virgin. Their existence is discovered by an investigative reporter and a young runaway child and this leads to an unexplained and terrifying confrontation.

Everything about this film goes way beyond amateur, from the 'old person' make up, to the Persian rug cavemen clothes, to the dissolve shot ageing FX. The lighting is abysmal; spot lights are shone straight into the set giving each shot an early silent film style ring of shadow around the edge of the shot. The acting is appalling, especially from the grimacing Crackers Phinn. The plot progresses at bizarre speeds, some scenes dragging on for way too long and other plot points zooming past at top speed.

Despite all of the above (or perhaps because of it) I love this movie. I really could bang on about it for days but I won't. If you ever find a copy (which isn't easy) you have to see it. I defy you to find anything worse in such a truly wonderful way.

Take an ensemble cast of good B grade actors, give them a good script, a somewhat original premise, and unobtrusive directing, and you may end up with a film that over-achieves as much as Don't Look in the Basement did.

The film takes place in a large house which is home to several psychotic individuals. The film starts with the head of the hospital being chopped up with an axe. The rest of the film builds tension and successfully develops the individual psychoses of the in-mates. After a while it becomes very unclear who is a patient and who is a doctor.

In the end, Don't Look in the Basement is a cleverly plotted film which benefits from generally good acting and directing and not-overly-ambitious camera work.

  • Reel 8 - Remove the line "I didn't see any harm in letting her have a pluck."
  • Reel 8 - Remove the line "That was a hair raising experience."

Braintree commented in March 2015:

The line You've always had magnificent balls is said to be cut but I'm sure its included. That very line is included in the opening montage of the theatrical That's Carry On so unless it's not in the original film and the cut clip is only seen in the compilation ( which was made 10 years later) it would indicate that at least that cut is restored to the film.

It was the first or second 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 Review: A certain charm

It's Christmas-time in London, and someone is killing people dressed as Santa Claus. The murderer is a plainclothes sicky who hunts down St. Nick impersonators, bumping them off in grizzly ways including impalement and urinal-side castration! 

The film has a certain charm.... and some beautiful naked women. It's a fantastic 80's slasher film

All that remains of this sequence in the British version is a shot of the spiked shoe and brief shots of the first punch and the cop Santa on the floor

Dorian Gray

Link Here
cut 15 cert 107:39s 2009 UK drama by Oliver Parker

The 2009 cinema release, 2009 Technicolor DVD and 2010 Technicolor Blu-ray were cut to achieve a 15 rating: An incomplete version of Dorian Gray was originally submitted to the BBFC for advice. The BBFC advised the company that, as it stood, the film was likely to achieve an '18' classification. However, the company was also informed that reductions in two scenes could result in the requested '15' classification.

When the finished film was submitted, these changes had been made according to the BBFC's advice.

  • Specifically, a scene in which a tea party is intercut with shots showing Dorian's sadomasochistic excesses was toned down to remove or reduce the more explicit moments (explicit sight of a fingernail being pulled off, explicit sight of a chest being cut with a razor in a sexual context, explicit sight of blood being sucked from a woman's breasts and sight of a restrained man being beaten).
  • Additionally, a murder scene was toned down to remove the sense of dwelling on the infliction of pain and injury (reduction in the number of stabbings, removal of a blood spurt from man's neck, reduction in sight of victim choking on his blood).

The BBFC explained their 15 rating:

Dorian Gray is a British produced film based on Oscar Wilde's famous horror story of a man who wishes that a portrait of him ages in his place. It was passed 15 for strong bloody violence, sex and drug use.

The BBFC Guidelines at 12A/12 state that moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail and also that there should be no emphasis on injuries or blood . In Dorian Gray however there are a couple of quite bloody murder scenes and these were felt better placed at 15 , where strong violence is permitted so long as it does not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury . The Guidelines at 12 also say that sexual activity may be briefly and discreetly portrayed and that nudity in a sexual context must be brief and discreet . Once again in the film, however, there are a couple of extended sex scenes, with some lingering breast nudity and these were similarly felt to be better placed at 15 where sexual activity may be portrayed without detail and nudity is allowed in a sexual context. Drug taking may also be shown at 15 provided the film as a whole does not promote or encourage drug misuse . With the central character of Dorian Gray paying a heavy price for his years of debauchery and drug consumption it was considered that scenes showing opium smoking, were acceptably placed at 15 .

Dorian Gray also contains scenes in which characters are shown smoking cigarettes.

See  article from  blog.hammerfilms.com , February 2012: Restored

Thanks to the efforts of a fan based in Japan, Hammer Films finally acquired the surviving footage from the extended cut in 2011 for inclusion in a forthcoming definitive restoration. The film contained a number of extended scenes, among them a shot of Dracula tearing his face off during the disintegration climax.

We have reviewed the restoration of the Japanese footage to Dracula. It was incredibly exciting to see the two long-lost moments in the context of the BFI's restoration.

Molinare have done a superb job restoring this footage, considering the state of the reels (you'll be able to compare and contrast on the eventual Blu-ray; we're going to release all four surviving Japanese reels unrestored as a single extra).

The moment where the Count leans-in over Mina is full of transgressive threat and erotic charge (one can easily see how this moment had to be cut in 1958) though the footage does not actually include a bite (contrary to wishful thinking in some quarters).

The face-clawing scene is truly magnificent and sits perfectly within the last few seconds of the film.

Note that although extra material was re-inserted, other less important material was dropped to preserve the running time, and hence keep the audio track in sync.

The BBFC commented:

Dracula is a classic 1950s British adaptation of Bram Stoker's vampire novel 'Dracula'. It was originally classified 'X' for cinema release in 1958 (meaning that persons under 16 should not be admitted) and was subsequently classified '15' for release on video. In terms of current classification standards it was felt that the film could now be classified at '12A' for cinema re-release for mild bloody horror.

BBFC Guidelines at '12A' state that 'Violence must not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood. Sustained moderate threat and menace are permitted'. Although the film contains some sight of blood (most notably when a vampire is killed using a stake) , there is no emphasis upon blood and injuries. Furthermore, although the film is atmospheric and generates some sense of threat, this is moderate in nature and distanced by the period setting and by the familiarity of the story, other versions of which have been classified at 'PG'.

The US Theatrical Version was passed 15 without BBFC cuts for:

  • 2003 Warner R2 DVD
  • 1997 Warner VHS

From IMDB. The US Theatrical Version restores the cut footage during Lucy's staking, but the cut footage from Dracula kissing Mina and his final disintegration is still missing.

From IMDB. The BBFC cuts were:

  • Cut to reduce the erotic charge as Dracula leans over Mina preparing to bite. The original has Dracula muzzling her face and kissing her lip before pushing her backwards down on to the bed. The cut version replaces this with a shorter shot from a different angle that obscures the muzzling and kissing.
  • Cut to reduce the final disintegration of Dracula. The original had a shot of Dracula's hand peeling the skin off his disintegrating face and then delving into his eyes.

Summary Review:  Still a lot of fun

Johnny Alucard raises Count Dracula(Christopher Lee) from the dead in 1972 London. The Count goes after the descendents of Van Helsing.

Nowadays this film seems very tame indeed but it is still a lot of fun.

There are some wonderful set pieces in this film - the opening sequence is very well done and the showdown between Lorimar Van Helsing and Johnny Alucard is memorable. I have to say though that Dracula is dispatched quite easily at the film's climax (something which is not uncommon in the Hammer Dracula films).

Summary Review: One of Lee's Best Performances

When his castle is exorcised, Dracula plots his revenge against the Monsignor who performed the rites by attempting to make the holy man's young niece his bride.

A typical example of a Hammer Studio's exercise in Gothic Horror exists. The unmistakably distinctive set design and music score is by Hammer mainstays.

Christopher Lee's performance is one of his best outings as Dracula. Director Freddie Francis coaxes serviceable performances from the rest of the cast.

At the end of the day, despite it's slow mid section, the movie works with plenty of fun and spirit.

Summary Review : Stood the test of time

This is the second Hammer Dracula film to feature Christopher Lee in the title role.

The film starts with a replay of the final few minutes of the first Hammer Dracula , which is perhaps the greatest moment in the history of Hammer films. From there it develops quickly, with two couples ending up staying at Castle Dracula. This film was made eight years after the original and its quite surprising how much more violent and gory it is.

The film was directed by Terence Fisher and you always know with a Hammer film that if he was the director you would get a quality film. Add this to James Bernard's great score and you have a fine horror film that has stood the test of time really well.

Review from imdb

The only reason I am commenting on this dumb '80s B-movie is because this is the first R-rated movie I ever rented. I was hoping for loads of nudity and plenty of sex scenes back at that age. I spent the whole time fast forwarding to "the good parts", but alas there really weren't any. There is very BRIEF nudity in here and ZERO sex. Oh yeah, the story sucks too and its not scary or interesting in the least bit.

For comparison the BBFC rated the film 15 uncut for strong language.

Drag Me To Hell has the same humour of the Evil Dead films only with a far bigger budget because Sam Raimi made it mega big with the Spider Man films.

Drag Me To Hell is a bit creepy and was one of the best horror films to come out last year. There is lots of blood with some humour which is nice to see.

Is the curse to be broken or will the sexy Alison Lohman be dragged down to hell by this scary demon goat!

If you like the Evil Dead films then you should enjoy this film too.

Friday and Streebek are assigned to some very strange robberies, like i.e. the stealing of one bat, a 30 foot long snake and the mane of a lion from a zoo. All the latest BAIT magazines were also recently stolen, and some chemicals that when are mixed correctly develops a very deadly gas. All these thefts have one thing in common; visit cards with the word "PAGAN" left at the crime scenes. Solving these crimes, including why plenty of police vehicles have been stolen lately, involves the usual; to drink coffee at strip tease bars, rescue kidnapped virgins from drowning and lose their jobs.

Summary Review : Entertaining Biopic

Dragon is an epic depicting the life of Bruce Lee. In my opinion, it is one of the most entertaining biopics of recent times. It follows the life of Bruce Lee from his childhood in Hong Kong to right before his death.

Jason Scott Lee does a great job of portraying Bruce Lee and it's a shame that we can't see more of him these days. You can really feel the power of his performance on the screen. If you have any interest in Bruce Lee, you have to check out this film. It's sure to inspire you to reach for your own impossible dreams.

The BBFC explained the cuts:

This film was originally shown to the BBFC in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive a 12A classification but that the requested PG certificate could be achieved by making changes to a number of scenes.

In particular the BBFC suggested that gun threat to, and violence against, a woman should be reduced; a close-up and slow-motion impact shot in kick to face should be removed; a leaping kick to face in a fight scene should be removed; dismembering of fantasy creatures in fight scene should be made largely indistinct; the horror effects in the transformation of the hero into a creature should be reduced; and the focus on throttling of a character should also be reduced.

When the finished version of the film was submitted, amongst other limited changes, all these reductions had been made satisfactorily and the film was classified PG .

The quality seems closer to VHS than DVD and is so poor as to make the addition almost pointless. The adultery scene is identical on the German Blu-ray to the UK Blu-ray.

Thanks to Simon Diabolik:

As a trainee projectionist. I actually checked the ABC cinema's Dreamscape print and felt the poorly taped together cuts, a right hack job. The clunky hand made last minute BBFC cuts to the unrated US version were to the train lovemaking, nunchaku appearance and heart extraction.

uncut 18 95:56s 1985 French erotic film by Pierre B. Reinhard

Passed uncut in 2007

The uncut region 2 DVD is available at UK Amazon for a release on 24th Jan 2008

Review from IMDb

Although it is a sex comedy, it isn't one of those silly dim-witted sex comedies so frequently made in Italy, England and Germany in the 1970s. In particular, the film takes the eroticism more seriously than comedies normally do and shows even signs of pretentiousness [you can tell it is a French production], and it is particularly the latter aspect British genre critics seem to find hard to accept. Similarly, there are themes of revenge, humiliation, voyeurism, bondage - but these are treated in a semi-comical way, and the distinctly misogynist appetites harboured by the unpleasanter fans of sexploitation cinema remain unsatisfied.

Overall, this movie is a generally well-made soft porn flick (cinematography, acting, production values - all of good quality) that is less offensive, violent or silly than so many other products of the genre. Therefore, it should be watchable for a mainstream audience when in adventurous mood.

The Theatrical Version released in the UK was the R-rated US version.  James Ferman said that the Director's Cut, which ran slightly longer, was offered, but Ferman turned it down. The murder of Angie Dickinson was much more explicit - including a very specific razor slash down the face, more blood generally.

38s of MPAA cuts to avoid an 'X' rating, are as follows:

  1. The famous shower-scene has Kate (Angie Dickinson... or rather her body double) caressing her pubic area were replaced with shots of Kate caressing her stomach, and her breast.
  2. The rape of Kate has been slightly trimmed.
  3. The brutal death of Kate in the elevator has been softened by using alternative takes (thus eliminating two extremely graphic bloody close-ups).
  4. Dialogue was altered from a conversation between Liz (Nancy Allen), and Dr Elliot (Michael Caine); Liz's line All the time he's talking I can see the bulge in his pants is completely removed, and another Liz's line He drops his pants, spreads my legs, kneels down behind me, is changed to He drops his pants, he forces me down on my stomach, kneels down behind me. Even another Liz's line Well, because of the size of that cock in your pants has the word cock replaced to bulge in the R-rated cut.

The murder in the lift scene was shown uncut on the BBC2 documentary, Scene by Scene with Brian De Palma.

The Driller Killer is a 1979 USA crime horror by Abel Ferrara.
With Abel Ferrara, Carolyn Marz and Baybi Day. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Shortened for 1982 pre-cert VHS which was then famously banned as a video nasty. A pre-cut version was released on 1999 18 rated VHS. Uncut and 18 rated since 2002. Unrated and uncut in the US. The 2016 Blu-ray includes for the first time a pre-release version.

Summary Review: Dour but Good

An artist slowly goes insane while struggling to pay his bills, work on his paintings, and care for his two female roommates, which leads him taking to the streets of New York after dark and randomly killing derelicts with a power drill.

It has been said of Abel Ferrara that you will either be turned on by his artistic vision, or be left cold by it. This one fits firmly in the 'like' side of the equation.

The story follows an artist, who, through the pressures of his work and various things going on around him, is slowly driven insane. His insanity is brought about by lack of money and a punk rock band that has moved in upstairs. We are able to see the frustrations of our 'hero' increase throughout the movie, especially when the plot thickens and several other things in his life go awry.

The Driller Killer was originally banned as a "video nasty" because of the notoriety it gained for it's cover art, as opposed to it's content. This can be seen clearly by the fact that The Driller Killer isn't actually that gory. The horror doesn't come as a result of the huge amounts of gore spurting from the wounds, but rather from the noise that the drill makes while being used, and the insanity of the main character.

Overall, the Driller Killer is a creative and inventive insight into insanity.

The Albans are represented by the Curiazi. During the fierce and bloody final duel the Romans defeat their opponents.

Review from imdb

Ninjas on kites!!! Exploding Head!!! Crazy swordfights!!! Exploding Trees!!! I really am not sure what else you need in a film. The acting, which is usually lacking in a kung fu film is good, and even the story is good. If you love kung fu action, this is the film for you!! 10/10

5s 18 83:27s Made in Hong Kong version cut when submitted in 1989.
  • Cut to remove all shots of shuriken (4 blade throwing star)

The BBFC commented:

  • Company chose to cut scene to remove glamorisation of drug use in order to attain the requested category. An uncut 15 classification was available

The scene in question featured the two main characters entering the wrong room where they find a group of scantily clad women smoking a bong. They decide that this looks cool and enter the room. They then emerge acting stoned. The combination of sex and drugs and the lack of any critical comment seemed to the BBFC to be glamorising drug use in a way not permitted at '12A'.
