3:04s 18 214:58s 1968 US comedy by John Maddox

Composite DVD with 2 features and many trailers cut in 2005 with the following BBFC comment: Cuts were made to remove trailers for The Sin Syndicate and Prostitutes Protection Society, in addition to cuts in the feature itself. Cuts required to remove images which may endorse or eroticise sexual violence.

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon

Review from Amazon US : Indian sacrifice Well, if anyone thinks we are in an age of "no-holds-barred" cinema these days, try imagining a Hollywood producer's reaction to a exploitation comedy plot about 2 guys who drug and kidnap women, and terrorize them with elaborate theatrics to get their sexual kicks. Their scenarios involve a phantom-of-the-opera type, an "Indian sacrifice" and, best of all, a ludicrous, made-up fascist organization. Of course it is all ridiculous and the farthest thing from truly hateful, but it is sure to offend some humorless individuals.

The extras are a good selection of trailers and short subjects, the most notable being a 40 minute story of a NYC prostitute which is sleazy and oddly compelling at the same time.

Scarecrows

Link Here
  • Paratrooper

Scarecrows DVD Region US NTSC

Scarecrows is a 1988 USA horror by William Wesley.
Starring Ted Vernon, Michael David Simms and Richard Vidan. Youtube link BBFC link IMDb
Exists as a heavily cut US R rated version which was released in the UK for 1989 cinema release and home video up to 2007 DVD. There is also a US uncut version that is MPAA Unrated.

Summary Review: Claustrophobic tension

Five people heist the Camp Pendleton payroll, kidnap a pilot and his daughter, who are forced to fly them to Mexico. Enroute a double cross has one of the thieves parachute with the loot into an abandoned graveyard surrounded by strange scarecrows.

Scarecrows is basically a glorified zombie movie, and pretty much plays out like one as the characters are picked off by their unworldly adversaries. The fact that the entire film takes place in what appears to be real time and in only one location ensures that it benefits from a claustrophobic tension, which benefits a film like this greatly. Truly frightening and a wonderful horror film.

Scarface

Scarface DVD

Scarface is a 1983 US gangster film by Brian De Palma.
With Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer and Steven Bauer. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for 1984 cinema release and 1987 VHS, then uncut since 1994 VHS. Uncut in the US with an R rating, but only after an appeal.

Summary Review : Masterpiece

Scarface is a 23 year old masterpiece directed by Brian de Palma and is so influential that it defined a decade in some ways, in terms of the fashion that main character Tony Montana (Al Pacino) wore and the music and the era of the drug industry that also defined the 80s.

This is a film that certainly glorifies violence and creates a cool guy who is also a real nasty piece of work, the film is iconic with great quotable lines and a new generation has embraced this fully, so its legacy is safe and in terms of being a masterpiece, yes this is clearly one of the great movies of all time.

Battle with the MPAA

The director had a battle to get his final version passed R rather than the NC-17 the MPAA offered on the first 3 submissions. De Palma won an appeal and released his final cut of the film with an R Rating. It was reported that that was only reduced to an R after De Palma brought in a narcotics cop who pled its case as a cautionary tale.

There are still suggestions that more violent footage was made, but dropped earlier during the editing process.

Cut by the BBFC for an X rated 1976 cinema release. Further BBFC cuts for 18 rated 1987 VHS, but cuts waived for 18 rated DVD in 2008. Uncut and R rated in the US.

Summary Review: Psychological Terror Twists

Samantha and Alan are getting married, but William Haskins isn't pleased and begins shadowing Samantha as she tries to get on with married life. Haskins' attempts to frighten her drive Samantha to desperation, but she's having trouble convincing anyone that she's being stalked. Even her psychiatrist dismisses her concerns as part of her neurosis. As bodies begin turning up, Samantha's story becomes more believable, and her dark secret from the past begins to reveal itself.

Pete Walker and his loyal scriptwriter David McGillivray were pretty much England's most controversial duo of filmmakers back in the glorious seventies. They provided genre fans with provocative and violent films, stuffed with social criticism and obscene undertones.

Schizo blends an innovating slasher premise with some of the genre's oldest and most delightful clichés. Highly recommended!

Thanks to Salote. The BBFC cuts were:

  • At 0 min - During opening voice-over, suggestion that schizophrenia makes its victims violent was removed. This was achieved by removing the words "violent and" :

    "Schizophrenia, a mental disorder sometime know as multiple or split personality, characterised by loss of touch with environment and alternation between violent and contrasting behaviour patterns."

    So that the text should now read -

    "...and alternation between contrasting behaviour patterns."

  • At 74.5 mins - When mallet hits woman's head as she waits for bus, two shots of her face covered in blood were removed (offscreen blows remained). After second blow with mallet in vision, four more shots of bloody face before she sinks to the ground were removed.

  • At 84.5 mins - Close up of needle sticking out of side of dead woman's eye was removed (MS as camera pulls away may remained).
  • At 95 mins - When woman has flashback of mother copulating, all sight of her bottom being slapped during sex and also of her in suspender belt with legs wrapped around man (before child watches from door) were removed.
  • At 96 mins - Attack on woman's bare stomach was reduced to minimum establishment only, removing knife slashes and stabbing of stomach and all prodding and slashing of blood-stained torso, resuming on child hitting offscreen.

It was reported that producers cut a scene featuring a kiss between two of its female characters to make it appropriate for PG rated family viewing.

Sarah Michelle Gellar who plays Daphne originally shares a kiss with co-star Linda Cardellini as Velma. The original script reportedly featured a scene in which Fred gazed lustfully at Daphne while she leaned over him to load luggage into an airplane's overhead bin. The camera then caught Velma, ogling her too before they kissed. A source from the film's production team said:

At the film's first screening the censors were horrified by the kissing scene. They were shocked and said it was highly inappropriate for family viewing. It has now been edited out and will not be seen.

Screenwriter James Gunn confirmed that the kiss was filmed but cut in the final edit.

  • The Score

Score Uncut Uncensored Claire Wilbur

Score is a 1974 US/Yugoslavia erotic drama by Radley Metzger .
With Claire Wilbur, Calvin Culver and Lynn Lowry. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Banned by the BBFC for 1974 cinema release. Real gay sex was cut from the 2013 Arrow release for an 18 rating, otherwise the film would have been uncut, but with an R18 rating.

Summary Review: Period Piece

Liberated '70s couple seduce another couple into experimentation with bisexuality and group-sex.

The film calls for sexual liberation and it a fun look at sex and dialog of the stoned 70's. In the UNCUT version of Score Gerald Grant and Cal Culver (Casey Donovan of gay porn fame) engage in explicit, X-rated sexual activity.

The bi-sexual theme may not sit well with a lot of folks and perhaps that is what makes the film so special and is is part of the enduring charm. People have trouble with non-traditional sex (particularly for men).

Artfully photographed by Metzger himself and veteran cinematographer Franjo Vodopivec on location in Yugoslavia, has clever dialogue which removes outmoded notions of sexual parameters from the start.

This movie was WAY ahead of its time with some great erotic scenes, plenty of nudity and drug references. The lead actress (Claire Wilbur) is marvelous in her role as Elvira, the swinging married seductress. Lynn Lowry is quite convincing in her role as an innocent newlywed catholic school girl turned wild sexpot!

All in all, this movie is great fun to watch. It is an extremely enjoyable and often shocking piece of erotic cinema.

Distributor chose to remove clear sight of unsimulated oral sex in order to achieve an 18 classification. An uncut R18 was available.

In addition to cuts of 2 minutes 3 seconds which were required by the BBFC for the 18 classification - an R18 without cuts was available - the distributor chose to remove an additional 4 minutes 50 seconds of content.

US: There is a cut US softcore version. that is exactly the same running time as that passed 18 by the BBFC. Presumably it is the same version. It looks like Arrow submitted the uncut version and the BBFC requested cuts of 2:03s. Rather than implement the cuts themselves, Arrow submitted the cut US version instead, which meets the BBFC demands but is substantially shorter. Presumably using the existing US softcore version makes it easier in terms of the soundtrack and commentary.

See pictorial cuts details from movie-censorship.com . The cuts were:

  • A scene features cross cutting between a softcore lesbian scene and a hardcore gay scene featuring real oral sex. Presumably the BBFC required cuts were to the gay blow jobs. The remainder of the cuts are US cuts to tone down the remaining sex in the same scene.

From Sex Gore mutants: Twisted

'Scrapbook' is a low budget insular piece that looks into the mind of a serial killer and his unlucky victim. The scrapbook of the title is one that twisted Leonard (Tommy Biondo) has been working on for some time, it's a collection of polariods and pieces of deranged memorabilia that he's built up from years of brutal slayings. His victim this time round is the luckless Clara (Emily Haack) who he delights in degrading at every opportunity - beating, raping and torturing her over and over again.

'Scrapbook' is without a doubt one of the most brutal and horrifying films ever released...period. In fact I doubt there has ever been a film so scarily close to the bone in perfectly depicting the real terrifying intensity of the psyche of a serial killer.

I could wax lyrically for ages about just how jaw-droppingly stunning this film is but I wont. All I would say is that if you think you've got the stomach to sit through this one then waste no time in doing so. Powerful, provocative and gut wrenchingly disturbing - the must see independent horror movie of the year.

Scream Blacula Scream is a 1973 USA horror by Bob Kelljan.
Starring William Marshall, Don Mitchell and Pam Grier. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for an X rated 1973 cinema release. uncut on home video. Uncut and PG rated in the US.

Summary Notes

After a dying Voodoo queen chooses an adopted apprentice as her successor, her true heir is outraged. Seeking revenge, he buys the bones of Blacula the vampire off of a dealer, and uses voodoo to bring the vampire back to do his bidding. In turn, Blacula turns him into a vampire and makes him his slave. Meanwhile, a police officer with a large collection of African antiques and an interest in the occult investigates the murders caused by Blacula and his vampire horde.

Scream Blacula Scream proved a worthy follow-up to Blacula . The voodoo angle was a logical next step, and, for a kid whose preference was for fright films, it did not disappoint. And it STILL doesn't. I was surprised at how creepy it still is, after all these years. Pam Grier's character here is more sympathetic than the vast majority of the parts she's had over the years, and she is more than capable in the role. William Marshall is as majestic as ever. The direction is even better than in the original. A sequel worth seeing.

The BBFC commented:

This work was originally seen for advice. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive a 12A rating but that their preferred PG rating could be achieved by making limited changes, including:

  • to remove sight of naked female pin-up pictures and

  • to reduce violent threat in a fight scene [A shot in which a man is threatened with a broken glass during a bar fight]

When an edited version of the film was submitted for formal classification, these scenes had been addressed and the film was consequently rated PG.

The first DVD release of this bizarre journey through the battle of the sexes. Released UNCUT for the first time. Digitally remastered from the original negatives in original widescreen ratio.

Directed by acclaimed exploitation filmmaker Antony Balch. Celebrated filmmaker Antony Balch directs one of the most idiosyncratic and unforgettable British movies of all time the film the censor tried to stop!

From beyond the grave, a 1,000-year-old mummy (voiced by Valentine Dyall) narrates a series of kinky stories to illustrate the age-old battle of the sexes. From cosmic thrills, supernatural kinks and swinging permissiveness, this is boy versus girl in a hip, psychedelic mix of vintage glamour and grotesque horror.

Summary Review: Inserts

The Seduction of Inga is Joseph Sarno's sizzling and controversial sequel to his 1967 erotic masterpiece, Inga, starring the young, voluptuous Swedish sensation Marie Liljedahl in her steamiest role ever.

The sequel has a few things on its more famous predecessor. It's in colour and is set in a more cosmopolitan, Swinging -Europe era movie rather than a provincial domestic drama like its predecessor.

Not Sarno or Llijedahl's best movie, but worth watching if you like 60's and 70's Swedish erotica.

New Zealand : Banned on DVD in May 2012

The film censor explained the ban. See article [pdf] from censorship.govt.nz

There is a high likelihood that viewers would be greatly shocked and disturbed by the extreme sexual violence and violence in association with sexual conduct, along with sexual conduct with children and young persons, regardless of age. The publication's sexual violence and violence in association with sexual conduct is concerning in a different way. Research has repeatedly shown that such depictions are likely to reinforce negative attitudes towards women in a number of ways. They have been shown to desensitise viewers to real-life violence, to reduce empathy with victims of sexual violence amongst both men and women, to increase rape myth acceptance, and to increase women's fear of sexual assault. In the current publication this material is so extensive and extreme that these injuries to the public good are likely to occur regardless of the age of the viewer.

Norway : Banned

See  article from  tnp.no

Norwegian Media Authority (Mediatilsynet) banned A Serbian Film because it contains violence with the sexualisation of children. Ove Wathne of Mediatilsynet told daily Dagens Naeringsliv that it is usually an ingredient that provides a basis for an assessment of the Authority.

In Norway films are self rated by the distributors. The Norwegian media censors step in on demand, presumably in response to complaints or controversy.

Cuts required to remove portrayals of children in a sexualised or abusive context and images of sexual and sexualised violence which have a tendency to eroticise or endorse the behaviour. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy.

These include cuts to the juxtaposition of images of children with sexual and sexually violent material. Although the Board does not regard these images as likely to contravene the Protection of Children Act 1978, the Guidelines state that intervention is most likely with, amongst other things, portrayals of children in a sexualised or abusive context .

18 88:41s Passed 18 after BBFC cuts for:
  • 2000 Alliance Atlantis VHS
  • 1999 cinema release

The cuts for the cinema version were described by Michael Brooke as follows:

The sequence in question sees the butcher visit a cinema to watch a hard-core porno film that contains two sequences featuring a man and a woman clearly having penetrative sex (one in extreme close-up). He then leaves, returns to his flat, is taunted by his pregnant girlfriend and ends up punching her repeatedly in the stomach until she aborts their baby. All this is accompanied by near-continuous voice-over narration, which is quietly philosophical during the porno film, and violently aggressive during the subsequent assault (Your baby is hamburger meat now being a typical example).

And what makes the BBFC decision even more bizarre is the fact that instead of cutting the sex scene entirely, they opted for a Japanese-style blurring of the image, which makes absolutely no sense since not only is it still blindingly obvious what's going on, it also beggars belief that anyone watching the rest of the film (which in addition to the abortion sequence also features close-ups a young girl spurting gouts of blood from her neck, brains being splattered all over the floor and a voice-over consisting of near-continuous misogynist, homophobic and racist abuse) could possibly be disturbed by what must in fact be one of the *least* disturbing scenes in the film!

Definitely not cut by the BBFC but there was a recent discussion in the news groups suggesting that the film had been slightly trimmed by the MPAA to achieve and R rating. This was then the version submitted in the UK. The cuts were apparently to the 'Lust' scene.

But Purdip adds:

I believe these cuts are unlikely, as the Criteriion Laserdisc version is 'R' rated and they certainly would have collaborated with David Fincher without hesitation to release the unrated version of the film as always.

Summary Notes

Boris Zaroff is a modern businessman who is haunted by his past -- his father was the notorious Count Zaroff of The Most Dangerous Game fame. Consequently, Boris is subject to hallucinations and all-too-real social lapses which normally involve sadistic harm to beautiful naked young women. His butler is sworn to indoctrinating him into the evils of the family line, and their castle's torture dungeon proves quite useful in this regard. However, Boris is periodically lured away from his destiny by the romantic apparition of the deceased countess who previously owned the castle.

Promotional Material

1776 is a musical celebration of the founding of the United States of America based on the award-winning Broadway production. The story centers around familiar historical characters as they organize a movement for independence from Mother England: the tough and unyielding John Adams (William Daniels); the charming and pragmatic Benjamin Franklin (Howard Da Silva); the brilliant Thomas Jefferson (Ken Howard) who is chosen to write the Declaration of Independence even as he longs for the company of his new bride Martha (Blythe Danner); and the rest of the Continental Congress. All events lead up to that most significant date of July 4, 1776 when the Declaration was signed.

~180:00s US: The Laserdisc Version is the longest available and includes all available footage. From IMDb:

The laserdisc reissue features deleted footage, alternate takes for certain scenes, and an additional musical number titled Cool Considerate Men. This version also includes an overture and intermission. According to the laserdisc jacket, the original film elements of the extended version were destroyed; thus the deleted scenes were taken from whatever Columbia could find, mostly old, misused prints (which leads to a decrease in picture and sound quality whenever the film transitions from the theatrical version to the deleted footage). One deleted scene was taken from a black-and-white print and was presented as such.

For the 2002 DVD release, the film has been shortened slightly from the laserdisc version, to 166 minutes. The overture and entr'acte music have been removed and the songs Piddle, Twiddle, and Resolve and Lees of Old Virginia (the latter's reprise has been removed) have inexplicably been cut back to their original release lengths. On the other hand, a short piece of footage following Cool, Considerate Men has been found and reinserted. The replaced footage has been repaired, giving the DVD a much better look visually than the laserdisc.

There is also additional dialogue originally deleted in the Theatrical Version for age classification reasons.

Severance DVD cover

pre-cut 15 cert 95:53s 2006 UK horror film by Christopher Smith

From Film Threat Writer James Moran interviewed by Jay Slater

I really expected the film to be cut, let alone to get an 18. I knew that the producers really wanted the film to get a 15 because it's a lot easier to sell.

The very first cut we did was two hours long and had lots and lots of violence: that torture scene went on for ages and it was really explicit. At two hours, the film was obviously too long and we trimmed it down so it ran far smoother.

When the movie was trimmed in the editing room, the torture scene was shorter, and as you don't see as much, it made it even more disturbing. If you focus on a gore effect for too long, it doesn't look realistic. So we kept much of the gore off screen.

The BBFC went for a split vote for Severance to be a 15 or 18. It ended up being a very hard 15 or a very, very close to being 18 with snips.

[Statement from the BBFC. We saw an unfinished version of Severance and told the company that it was borderline 15/18. They took it away, removed about seven minutes and then formally submitted it. It got a straightforward 15 because they'd toned it down from the original cut].

Can we expect a far more gruesome director's cut on DVD when it's launched in December 2006?

I don't think so. I think Chris is happy with the way it is and there wasn't that much gore that was cut out in the first place. As I said earlier, if more violence is added to the torture scene, it won't appear to be realistic.

There, bathed in an atmosphere of fresh air and dazzling sun, Lucía begins to discover the dark corners of her past relationship, as if they were forbidden passages of a novel which the author now, from afar, allows her to read.

There's a couple of very explicit sex-scenes both with brief (blink and you'll miss them) pornographic moments.

15 cert 144:37s 2008 US comedy by Michael Patrick King

The Extended Version was passed 15 without BBFC cuts for the 2008 Entertainment in Video DVD.

Sex and the City is a romantic comedy based on the well-known and long-standing television series of the same name. The film follows the romantic exploits and shopping forays of Carrie Bradshaw, a New York City based writer, and her three friends – Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. It was passed 15 for strong language, sex and sex references.

The BBFC Guidelines at 15 permit frequent use of strong language (e.g. 'fuck'). That particular term is used about half a dozen times in the film, with a couple of additional variations.

The BBFC Guidelines at 15 also state that sexual activity may be portrayed but without strong detail and that there may be strong verbal references to sexual behaviour. The film contains four significant sex scenes; all are quite short and one involves three people. Although we see vigorous thrusting and some breast nudity, the sequences are sufficiently brief and lacking in detail to be allowed at 15 in this case. In one scene that doesn't involve any sexual activity there is a brief sight of a flaccid penis. The numerous strong verbal sex references in the film fall fairly and squarely within 15 classification category parameters.

The extra material is non-contentious.

US: The Extended Version is MPAA Unrated for:

The BBFC Commented:

Sex Drive is a comedy based upon a road trip taken by friends Ian, Lance and Felicia, as the former travels to a rendezvous with a woman he met on the internet. She has promised to have sex with him if he comes to see her and, as a virgin, he is keen to take up her offer. The work was classified at '15' for use of one use of very strong language, strong nudity, sex and sex references.

The use of very strong language occurs in a final fight scene between two women. BBFC's guidelines at '15' require that the use of very strong language be justified by context and this single use, said by a woman to a woman was felt to fit these criteria. The work also contains frequent use of strong language.

This version of Sex Drive contains frequent images of full-frontal male and female nudity, including close-ups on women's breasts. The nudity is intended to titillate, but is not sexual in context, so fits within BBFC Guidelines at '15', which state that nudity may be allowed in a sexual context but without strong detail.

Sex references include strong references to coprophilia, masturbation and plenty of ribald banter between the young characters about sex. There are also two sex scenes involving one of the main characters, where we see him indulging in unusual sexual practices. At '15', Guidelines state that Sexual activity may be portrayed but without strong detail and 'There may be strong verbal references to sexual behaviour.'

Finally, there is some moderate violence during a scene where Ian and his friends are confronted by the film's villains, including a comic moment where a character is shot in the leg.

See pictorial cuts details from movie-censorship.com :

We are treated to a real Unrated this time, indicated by the enormous running time difference of over 20 minutes! From the very first minute we know that this won't be the usual kind of Unrated Version, since the movie starts with an introduction by the director and the producer making fun of the various conventions of Unrated Versions...only to present breasts and genitals in its purest form just a moment later.

The movie itself then provides everything the viewer could ask for: numerous extensions of nude shots and sex scenes as well as whole new footage, cruder dialogue, audio changes containing fouler language as well as random fart noises or simply naked women and genitals pasted into the movie just for the hell of it. Outtakes are used in the movie itself as well.

An inspector and an insurance investigator both have a major stake in revealing the identity of an audacious jewel thief.

This is a very watchable soft core sex movie and very representative view of early 70s London.

The main premise of the film, involving David Warbeck as a burglar who gets so involved with the ladies they don't mind being robbed is a good one and the direction is good. Some of the performers are better in the bed scenes than out but what do you expect when the sex is the main raison d'etre.

Not particularly sexy but there is plenty of flesh on display and the scenes are pretty vigorous. Enjoyable.

The BBFC commented:

The film opens with a scene set in a school science laboratory in which a boy and a girl masturbate themselves in front of their classmates while filming their actions on their mobile phones. The scene contains a brief but explicit shot of the girl's pudenda as she strokes herself under her skirt. Although the detail is explicit, it is brief and justified by context in that the film goes on to examine the reasons behind this behaviour and the attempts by the family's matriarch to get her children to open up about their sexual desires and experiences. The actress in question was over 18 at the time of filming so there is no issue under the terms of the Protection of Children Act 1978.

The film also contains a number of other strong sexual scenes, although none of them feature the kind of explicit detail seen in the opening sequence.

This movie is about the morality, education, and responsibilities pertaining to sexual freedom. Not only that, it has the most amazing child birth sequence that could and should be used as a training tool and viewed by anyone that is interested in the miracle of child birth.

This very insightful movie should be shown in school sex education programs internationally along with material already being presented in that forum, and is and all around must see for anyone deemed mature enough. It is a great introduction to various pertinent aspects in the sexual arena. It's delightful!
