See  article from cinemablend.com :

Much of the additional footage is battle-related. This includes dwarves charging into battles against orcs, wargs, and various other kinds of monsters with all kinds of weapons, including a ram-driven sled featuring scythe-covered wheels and a crank-operated arrow launcher. As enemies are taken down, small splashes of black blood occasionally appear, and I'll admit that some of the deaths do rank on the gnarly scale, but the idea that it actually crosses any kind of line from PG-13 to R is entirely ridiculous.

I will tell you what, you wait for the extended cut of this film. There are a few Orc killings that we actually got knocked back. Because when we submitted this to the MPAA we got an R. So what you're seeing is the result of heavy editing to even just get the PG-13. But there will be a little bit of Orc killing to be seen in the extended cut.

pre-cut 15 Certificate 98:04s 2001 UK thriller by Nick Hamm

From imdb

The film was cut by the distributor to qualify for a "15" rating in the UK. The cuts include the re-dubbing of the word 'cunt'. Ironically, the 'deleted scenes' section on the UK DVD release is rated '18', therefore earning the DVD an '18' overall, even though the film is only a '15'. The same version of the film was released worldwide, so an uncut version/director's cut DVD sadly isn't available anywhere.

It has been suggested that the Dutch release is uncut.

Sacked by the bus company Stan and Jack get jobs as drivers ferrying punters to and from a holiday camp and arrange for the rest of the family to come and stay.

The Butlers head for one disaster after another as Jack and Stan, still chasing women half their age, take two girls for a bus trip on the sands only for the bus to sink in as the tide approaches. Olive gets into bed with someone else's husband when she makes it back to the wrong chalet in the dark and 'little' Arthur sprays the chalet with ink, requiring a re-painting job. The holiday over Arthur's sidecar combination manages to come apart on the way out as it did on the way in.

Summary Review: Surrealist vignettes

Mystical themes unfold through a series of surrealist vignettes rife with religion symbolism, sardonic satire and distancing cinematic shock tactics.

it's not going to be a film for everyone, but those already turned on to Jodorowsky's ideas will no doubt take away a great deal from the film's central message, and from the dizzying kaleidoscope of visual ideas, interpretations and sight gags that explode from the screen in a veritable barrage of colour and movement.

Cut by the BBFC for an X rated 1973 cinema release. Nominally uncut but somewhat short for 18 rated VHS. Uncut on DVD/Blu-ray. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US.

Summary Review: Hippies

Take one part Woodstock, one part funky psychedelic music, two parts skintight jeans and Right on, man, mix thoroughly, smother the whole thing in cheese, and you have the makings of the 1973 camp classic Horror Hospital. Made by director Antony Balch on an obviously shoestring budget (and probably as an enormously sick joke), Horror Hospital ranks as one of the funniest films masquerading as a horror movie I have seen in some time. Personally,

I suspect Balch and his compatriots actually got the idea for this quirky schlockfest when they attended Woodstock and accidentally ingested the brown blotter. For all I know, maybe a biker rapped Balch over the head with a blackjack at Altamont. Whatever the case, only a severe trauma to the cranium could instill such a warped idea as Horror Hospital in the human brain.

It is a great shame more fans of the genre don't know about this movie. This film is great fun for those willing to put their mind on hold for a couple of hours.

The Hospital is a 2013 USA horror by Tommy Golden and Daniel Emery Taylor.
Starring Jim O'Rear, Daniel Emery Taylor and John Dugan. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Substantially pre-cut for UK DVD. Uncut in the US

Summary Notes

Old St. Leopold's Hospital has many urban legends surrounding it, but the residents of Bridgeport all agree on one thing: tortured souls roam its abandoned halls. The mystery proves too much for a pretty young student who decides to investigate for her senior class project. Unfortunately, she does not find ghosts. She, instead, finds Stanley... serial rapist, murderer, and psychopath. As the young girl becomes Stanley's new pet, a team of young investigators descend on the hospital to "hunt some ghosts." Stanley sees nothing but fun and games in his future. But, what Stanley does not know is that the hospital truly is haunted and the restless spirits there are not happy with what he has been doing.

The BBFC commented in the Annual Report covering 2014:

The Hospital, a US horror feature about a team of paranormal investigators who visit an abandoned hospital, only to fall prey to a gang of rapists and murderers. After initial advice from the BBFC that the film was likely to require cuts to the frequent and lengthy sequences of sexual violence, torture and rape, the distributor submitted a re-edited version from which all the material which may have required BBFC cuts had been removed. This version, with nearly 17 minutes removed by the distributor, was passed 18 without further cuts.

Banned nationwide from Tesco stores after whinges from a local paper in Gloucester.

See article from movie-censorship.com . The UK releases is missing 17:30s of footage depicting the rape and torture of several girls.

Summary Notes

Three female college students take a detour from their partying, enticed by a beautiful European woman who promises seclusion, safety and maybe even romance. What they get is a living hell where they are sold to the highest bidder who's fondest wish is to kill them slowly. Hostel 2 also follows 2 American men who, on the flip side of the coin, are willing to pay to join an exclusive club where a life will end at their hands...any way they like. It's a story of human monsters and the almighty dollar as only Eli Roth could tell it.

Hound Baskervilles Blu ray Peter Cushing

The Hound of the Baskervilles is a 1959 UK horror mystery by Terence Fisher.
Starring Peter Cushing, André Morell and Christopher Lee. Youtube link BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for 1959 cinema release. It seems likely that it was this cut cinema version that has been released ever since.

Summary Review

Returning to his family's manor house on the lonely moors after his father dies under mysterious circumstances, Sir Henry Baskerville is confronted with the mystery of the supernatural hound that supposedly takes revenge upon the Baskerville family. The famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson are brought in to investigate.

Adapted from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous Sherlock Holmes story, Terence Fisher's film of The Hound of the Baskervilles is probably the best attempt to immortalise the Great Detective on film. The movie has several things in its favour, notably a director at the top of his game and Jack Asher's cinematography. The cast, too, is almost flawless.

Summary Notes

Detective Lucas McCarthy finally apprehends Meat Cleaver Max and watches the electric chair execution from the audience. But killing Max Jenke only elevated him to another level of reality. Now Lucas' family is under attack, his sanity in question, and his house haunted.

The story is the weak point of the production, as James Isaac's acute direction is surefooted, the FX is imaginatively staged, Harry Manfredini's pulsating score holds well and the camera atmospherically shines in passages.

House III is not related to House 1 and House II. The House tag was dropped for the 2013 Combo release titled The Horror Show

The House by the Cemetery is a 1981 Italian horror film by Lucio Fulci
With Catriona MacColl & Paolo Malco. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for X rated 1982 cinema release. This cut version was released on pre-cert video and was banned as a video nasty. It was then heavily cut for BBFC approved VHS in 1988. The cuts were reduced for 2001 DVD and later waived for 2009 DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Summary Review: Dread and Fear

This is the third in a loose trilogy of films by Italian master of the macabre Lucio Fulci set in New England that evoke the uncanny and cosmic terrors of H.P. Lovecraft.

At times Fulci succeeds very well in creating an atmosphere of dread and fear, and the film is not without some subtle moments of terror, due mainly to an eerie soundtrack and a couple of creepy kids. But fans of Fulci and Italian horror cinema in general are not interested in the type of subtle scares one might find in ghost stories. Although this film is not without its moments (throats ripped out, maggot ridden bodies and decapitation), the violence seems quite muted compared to other Fulci films.

The BBFC stated:

Cuts required to three instances of real animal cruelty (horses made to fall using techniques likely to result in serious injury). 

This Chinese martial arts extravaganza, contained four horsefalls in a chase scene set in a forest. Three of the falls appeared to have been achieved using cruel techniques, including use of trip wires. The production company contended that precautions, such as the placing of mattresses on the forest floor hidden by leaves and sand, the dampness of the land surface and the use of horse trainers and soft ropes, removed any element of cruelty. The sequence was shown to an expert veterinarian, experienced in supervising filmed animal action, who considered and rejected the film maker's arguments. The three cruel and dangerous horsefalls were therefore removed.

Note also that there is a cut US PG-13 version to avoid, that deletes blood and bloody wounds. See pictorial cuts details from movie-censorship.com

Cut by the BBFC for 1974 cinema release. Uncut on home video. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: A seventies gem.

An old man that lives in an old house conducts a correctional institute for girls. He is assisted my a matron who likes to get the girls into trouble and present them in front of the old man who thinks he is the law and he passes out punishment. Afterwards the girls get tied to a cross and whipped.

Pete Walker's film is both a sleazy seventies exploitation classic and a striking indictment of the justice system.

The atmosphere of the film is brilliant; Pete Walker always ensures that the action is sleazy, and yet oddly erotic at the same time. The film is very matriarchal, and it's the female characters that are the protagonists while the men exist in background roles. However, the film isn't feminist; and, in fact, is the exact opposite; as the director ensures that none of the women are portrayed in a favourable light.

Barbara Markham gives a powerhouse performance in the role of the head of the institution. Penny Irving is the young French victim at the centre of the story; but her performance is brought down by her ridiculous French accent!

A seventies gem.

Summary Review: Classic slasher

After a seemingly innocent prank goes horribly wrong, a group of sorority sisters are stalked and murdered one by one in their sorority house while throwing a party to celebrate their graduation.

The House On Sorority Row is a classic horror film. The acting was not that bad at all, and the directing was solid. This is a fave of mine. If you're a fan of 80's horror you will love this classic.

Other reviewers are not so impressed and rate it as moderate.

Summary Review: Interesting yet Chilling

A couple of rapists Alex and Ricky who are invited to a rich person's party. They decide to make their own cruel and twisted kind of fun such as murder and rape.

A harsh and unsettling Italian horror thriller from director Ruggero Deodato who definitely knows how to shock his audience.

The acting isn't all that great but the music is good with a funky disco song, some gory violence with torture, nudity, and sleaze abound.

Summary Review: Really graphic start

In 1840, a samurai comes home to find his wife in bed with another man, so he kills them both and then himself. Flash-forward to the present day, and an American family of three moves into this since-abandoned house and starts to experience incidents of haunting and possession.

The movie kicks off with the wife of a samauri doing the dirty with one of his students & guess what? he catches them at it & strikes them dead with his sword then commits harikiri on himself, really graphic start!

That scene was 142 years earlier now we go to present day japan . a couple & their daughter stay in this rented house & are told it is haunted . They don't seem to mind but visions of the former occupants appear the wife (Susan George!) has an affair with her husbands friend, Doug Mclure & it turns nasty when he finds out!

The love making scenes go on far too long , is this soft porn or horror?  The film comes full circle when the husband & friend fight over the wife & the ghosts take them over turning it into a crazy martial arts blood bath!

The beautiful Countess Martine de Bressac is released from the expensive asylum where she was incarcerated after castrating her former lover. She returns to her luxurious villa on the coast and goes at once down into her private underground dungeon. It's here that she indulges herself in the perverse sexual practices that give her life meaning, surrounded by the bizarre human statues of her previous victims. Her husband, Charles, feeds his wife's sick fantasies, aware that she is his meal ticket to a life of luxury. He announces that he has a new game for her - they will befriend and seduce the young and virginal daughter of a rich neighbor. But things do not go exactly as planned... Games of decadence and debauchery lead to mayhem and murder.

Summary Review: Sick Fantasy

Inspired by the fictional Dr. Heiter, disturbed loner Martin dreams of creating a 12-person centipede and sets out to realize his sick fantasy.

This is the type of movie you will either like or hate, I doubt there will be much in between. The film is quite shocking, but not the most outrageous of the genre.

Actor Laurence R Harvey is masterful as Martin yet doesn't utter a single word of dialogue.

The BBFC commented on their cuts:

Company was required to make 32 individual cuts to scenes of sexual and sexualised violence, sadistic violence and humiliation, and a child presented in an abusive and violent context. In this case, cuts included:

  • a man masturbating with sandpaper around his penis

  • graphic sight of a man's teeth being removed with a hammer

  • graphic sight of lips being stapled to naked buttocks

  • graphic sight of forced defecation into and around other people's mouths

  • a man with barbed wire wrapped around his penis raping a woman

  • a newborn baby being killed

  • graphic sight of injury as staples are torn away from individuals' mouth and buttocks.

See further clarifications about cuts in the Extended Classification Information from bbfc.co.uk :

The film also contains scenes of sexual and sexualised violence, most notably a sequence in which Martin rapes the woman at the end of his centipede . He is shown thrusting into the naked woman, although in the classified version the duration of the scene and the emphasis on both male and female nudity has been significantly reduced.

Elsewhere in the film, it is implied that Martin is masturbating with sandpaper whilst viewing a DVD of THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE). However, the classified version of the film is significantly less explicit.

These cuts enabled the ban to be rescinded as explained by the BBFC:

The DVD of The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has been passed with an 18 classification following 32 cuts made across 8 separate sequences. The cuts total 2 minutes 37 seconds and address all the concerns raised when the Board refused a classification on 6 June 2011, including those relating to sexual violence, graphic gore and the possibility of breach of the law relating to obscenity.

The President, Sir Quentin Thomas, said

When we first examined this work earlier this year we judged that, as submitted, it was unsuitable for classification; and, as we explained to the company, we could not ourselves see how cuts could produce a viable and classifiable work. That remains the view of one of our Vice Presidents, Gerard Lemos, who is therefore abstaining from the Board's collective decision.

The company lodged an appeal against our decision to refuse classification. In the course of preparations for that appeal, the company proposed a number of cuts which it was right for us to consider. In response, after further examination, we proposed a more extensive series of cuts. These cuts produce a work which many will find difficult but which I believe can properly be classified at the adult level. The company has now accepted these cuts, withdrawn its appeal and the work has been classified, as cut, at 18.

In its original letter of 6 June refusing classification, the Board made clear that it was open to the distributor to attempt cuts. The cuts which have now been made are, in the Board's judgement, necessary if the film is to be classified.

The BBFC explained:

The BBFC has rejected the sexually violent, and potentially obscene DVD, The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) This means that it cannot be legally supplied anywhere in the UK. The decision was taken by the Director, David Cooke and the Presidential Team of Sir Quentin Thomas, Alison Hastings and Gerard Lemos.

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is a sequel to the film The Human Centipede (First Sequence), which was classified 18 uncut for cinema and DVD release by the BBFC in 2010. The first film dealt with a mad doctor who sews together three kidnapped people in order to produce the human centipede'of the title. Although the concept of the film was undoubtedly tasteless and disgusting it was a relatively traditional and conventional horror film and the Board concluded that it was not in breach of our Guidelines at '18 . This new work, The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence), tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film and who imagines putting the centipede idea into practice. Unlike the first film, the sequel presents graphic images of sexual violence, forced defecation, and mutilation, and the viewer is invited to witness events from the perspective of the protagonist. Whereas in the first film the centipede idea is presented as a revolting medical experiment, with the focus on whether the victims will be able to escape, this sequel presents the centipede idea as the object of the protagonist's depraved sexual fantasy.

The principal focus of The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is the sexual arousal of the central character at both the idea and the spectacle of the total degradation, humiliation, mutilation, torture, and murder of his naked victims. Examples of this include a scene early in the film in which he masturbates whilst he watches a DVD of the original Human Centipede film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis, and a sequence later in the film in which he becomes aroused at the sight of the members of the centipede being forced to defecate into one another's mouths, culminating in sight of the man wrapping barbed wire around his penis and raping the woman at the rear of the centipede . There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalised, degraded and mutilated for the amusement and arousal of the central character, as well as for the pleasure of the audience. There is a strong focus throughout on the link between sexual arousal and sexual violence and a clear association between pain, perversity and sexual pleasure. It is the Board's conclusion that the explicit presentation of the central character's obsessive sexually violent fantasies is in breach of its Classification Guidelines and poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers.

David Cooke, Director of the BBFC said:

It is the Board's carefully considered view that to issue a certificate to this work, even if confined to adults, would be inconsistent with the Board's Guidelines, would risk potential harm within the terms of the VRA, and would be unacceptable to the public.

The Board also seeks to avoid classifying material that may be in breach of the Obscene Publications Acts 1959 and 1964 (OPA) or any other relevant legislation. The OPA prohibits the publication of works that have a tendency to deprave or corrupt a significant proportion of those likely to see them. In order to avoid classifying potentially obscene material, the Board engages in regular discussions with the relevant enforcement agencies, including the CPS, the police, and the Ministry of Justice. It is the Board's view that there is a genuine risk that this video work, The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence), may be considered obscene within the terms of the OPA, for the reasons given above.

The Board considered whether its concerns could be dealt with through cuts. However, given that the unacceptable content runs throughout the work, cuts are not a viable option in this case and the work is therefore refused a classification.

Summary Review: Women in Prison

Country singer Rachel Foster (Linda Haynes) is undoubtedly the unluckiest person alive as she stumbles upon a young kid who has just slaughtered his family.

She shoots the kid (he goes into a coma), resulting in a life sentence after the crooked Sheriff pins all the murders on her. But this is no ordinary prison as the Warden (Mercedes Shirley) and Dr. Kline (Geoffrey Lewis) are conducting bizarre behavioural experiments on their charges.

There are some memorable bits in this and, on a whole, it is a pretty solid women in prison entry with a few nice twists. Lewis does a great job as the creepy doctor and their is a nice supporting role from Ellen Travolta. Haynes is an attractive lead and isn't afraid to deliver the genre required nudity.

Director Gregory Goodell excels in the film's last third where Foster's nightmares come to life to haunt her. Sadly, he went on to Lifetime movies exclusively after this.

Review from IMDb: Seventies hardcore action

The Human Factor is a typical revenge movie in the wake of Dirty Harry, Death Wish and Straw Dogs with an American special agent and computer specialist in Italy losing his family by a terrorist's assault at his home and taking bloody revenge.

George Kennedy plays the hero and does a good job as hard-edged, desperate family father turning to a merciless killer, although he is no Clint Eastwood or Charles Bronson.

The scripts lacks a bit of logic sometimes, as the real motivation of the terrorist group is never really explained, but all in all the film keeps the action, thrills and suspense always going and adds some very scary moments and furious action sequences, especially the big showdown in a supermarket. Ennio Morricone's sound tracks puts even more thrills and atmosphere to this dark political thriller that can be seen as a sleeper for fans of seventies' hardcore action cinema.

Summary Review: Enjoyable B Movie Nonsense

A woman is raped at cocktail party. Years later, her son grows up to be a big hairy murderous monster who stalks a group of teens shipwrecked on his island.

Reviewers seem to fall into 2 camps. Those consider it a bad movie, but with sufficient B movie charm to make it a bit of a laugh.

Other reviewers seem to rate it as decent enough on merit to make it enjoyable.

At least both schools of opinion end up enjoying the film.

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 a number of cuts and visual reductions.

    When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, cuts had been made in four scenes of violence and in one scene showing details of injuries. These reductions were implemented by a mixture of visual cuts, visual darkenings and the digital removal of sight of blood.

    In addition to the reductions already made during the advice process, the Board required further reductions in one scene following formal submission of the finished feature. A number of cuts were made in one scene to reduce an emphasis on blood and injury. These cuts, which were implemented by digitally removing sight of blood splashes and sight of blood on wounds and weapons, were made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy.

    An uncut 15 classification was available.

The cuts were:

  • Blood has been digitally removed from a brick, which had presumably being used as a weapon
  • 2 instances of bloody knives being de-bloodied
  • 4 instances of wounds that no longer spurt blood
  • 2 shots of blood were cleared up from a wall and a suitcase
  • 2 shots of a bloody corpse have been de-bloodied
  • 2 Scenes showing Katniss' wound featured less wound and more tending
  • A scene showing Katniss threatened with a small knife featured less of the knife and more close ups of the aggressor's face

The BBFC spoke further about the cuts in Podcast 45 The Hunger Games

See  article from  huffingtonpost.co.uk . David Cooke explained further:

Before the film's formal UK classification, Lionsgate, the UK distributor of The Hunger Games, approached the BBFC for classification advice. Lionsgate made clear that they were looking for a 12A classification which would enable many children who had read and enjoyed the book to see the film. However, it was clear that the film shown to us at this early stage went some way beyond the BBFC's Guidelines at 12A. The level of detail of some of the violence and gore, such as the tending of bloody wounds, required the 15 category.

We also considered at this early stage whether the theme and overall tone of the film were appropriate for 12-year-olds. Although the concept of children and young people being forced to fight and kill one another is potentially disturbing, we concluded that the futuristic and fantastical nature of the setting distanced the sense of threat from reality. The film is also alive to ethical questions and we believed young teenagers were likely to understand that the film, like the novel, is a critique of violence and of media manipulation. Indeed, it vividly invites its viewers to use and develop their media literacy skills.

The story has some similarities to The Lord of the Flies, which is taught in schools to the same age group. If anything, the latter takes a bleaker view of human nature.

Having concluded that the issues of theme and tone were appropriate for 12-year-olds, we suggested how the distributor might be able to secure the desired 12A classification by reducing the level of violence, blood and gore. Lionsgate returned with another version of the film for advice, which took account of some of our suggestions. However it was still some way off the 12A criteria. Scenes with emphasis on injuries and blood remained, going against what the public, through our research and consultations, have told us is acceptable at this relatively junior category. We again offered advice as to what Lionsgate should remove for the film to be contained at the 12A category.

When the film was finally submitted for formal classification we required a further seven seconds of cuts to the most violent and bloody sequence, which takes place as the game begins, as well as the digital removal of some bloody effects.

In all, Lionsgate removed around 20 seconds of the most violent, threatening and gory content and digitally removed other bloody effects. This was their choice. The BBFC did not require Lionsgate to make any cuts at all. We offered a 15 classification without cuts.

Passed uncut by the BBFC in 2001

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon

Review from US Amazon : Perfect East meets West action movie

One of Lambert's best films, The Hunted finds Paul Racine (Lambert), a New Yorker on business in Japan, who meets the lovely Kirina (Joan Chen) in a bar late one evening and goes back to her place for a night of passion. But when Paul wants to continue seeing her, Kirina sadly tells him that he can never see her again. Unknown to Paul, Kirina is marked for death by the boss, Nemura (James Saito) who hires the cunning and ruthless ninja, Kinjo (John Lone), to carry out his deeds.

But a mistake in door keys causes Paul to return to her apartment only to witness her demise at the hands of Kinjo, who fatally wounds Paul, who sees him without his mask.

Wth a satisfying climax, this film not only has plenty of action to satisfy all, but the added bonus of fine acting by the cast (Lambert, Lone, Chen, Harada, Shimada) which makes it a most enjoyable film to watch again and again. Plus you can't beat the music, which adds another layer all by itself.

I really loved this film, seeing it in the movie theater, buying the video, laserdisc and finally the DVD. The Hunted is the perfect East meets West action movie.

12s 18 105:20s CIC video version cut by the BBFC in 1996

Cut by the BBFC for the use of "banned" weaponry:

  1. During the night raid on the hospital at which Ravine (Christopher Lambert) is recovering, (3 secs) of a ninja throwing a shuriken (ninja star) into a wall have been removed.
  2. Towards the end of the film, the scene on the island in which Kinjo (John Lone) conceals his identity to trap Ravine and his Samurai protectors is missing (3 secs) of him throwing two shurikens at guards - hitting both a chest and a face.
  3. At the end of the showdown between Kinjo and Ravine, (5 secs) of Kinjo revealing a shuriken and throwing it at Ravine's chest have been trimmed. This occurs just before the beheading.
  4. At the beginning of the train sequence when Takeda first encounters the goup of ninja the Female Ninja says to the others 'Kill Him'. 2 of the ninjas then produce Shurikens and throw them at Takeda. He deflects them with his sword and walks backs into another compartment. Again the Shurikens are not seen

The print shown on Sky is cut even further than the UK video.

Summary Review: Rent it even if you're not gay!

Hustler White is a fictionalised study of male hustlers operating in Los Angeles.

Bruce La Bruce sure knows all about tragic Hollywood suicides. The sex scenes are certainly not as graphic as "regular" gay porno. What you imagine is much worse than what you actually see on screen. It's not as if there are any close-up penetration shots. Perhaps the razor blade scene with the "Versace Model", made me cringe the most.

Not to be taken too seriously. Rent it even if you're not gay!
