92:05s UK: The pre-cut version was passed 15 without BBFC cuts for: US : Pre-cut and MPAA R rated for:

From IMDb. According to director Jamie Blanks a lot of the violent scenes were trimmed down. This was not done to satisfy the MPAA (the original cut was rated R ). Instead Warner Bros. thought that due to the political climate the amount of violence as shown in the original version was not tolerable at the time. The cuts were:

  • There is a scene in a TV spot where Kate and Adam are in the bar and she says: why am I surrounded by all this craziness ; then Adam says it's Valentine's day people get lonely and start acting strange ; then she says you're not acting strange .
  • A scene where Dorothy is attacked by the killer and dressed as the Cherub was cut.
  • Shelley's death was trimmed heavily. Originally, her neck actually split open and spewed blood. Now it is only implied.
  • Ruthie's death originally contained blood flowing out into the shape of a heart. This was digitally cleaned up later on to decrease impact.
  • The death of Kate's neighbor Gary, was trimmed. He was originally hit with the iron 11 times, instead of the 2 shown in the film.
  • Dorothy's stepmother, Kim Wheeler (Benita Ha), is murdered by the cherub. After Paige is electrocuted in the jacuzzi, her skin begins to melt.
  • Deleted scene: After Kate finds the mask in the elevator, and talks to Gary, she goes back inside her apartment. Then, she looks inside her closet and realizes that most of her outfits are missing.
  • Another deleted scene was right after Shelly's funeral. All the girl's are on top of a building having drinks and talking about their childhood with Shelly.

Vampire Circus DVD Adrienne Corri

Vampire Circus is a 1972 UK horror by Robert Young.
With Adrienne Corri, Thorley Walters and Anthony Higgins. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for 1972 cinema release. Some cuts were subsequently restored for home video but most have been permanently lost

Summary Review: One of the much better Hammer movies

A village in Nineteenth Century Europe is at first relieved when a circus breaks through the quarantine to take the local's minds off the plague. But their troubles are only beginning as children begin to disappear and the legacy of a long-ago massacre is brought to light.

One of the much better Hammer movies, with much blood and nudity, to say nothing of an even more startling child abduction/murder.

The visiting circus theme gives the film a tremendous boost. People and animals turn into each other and a dance by the tiger/lady is, as they say, worth the price of admission alone.

Super, well paced, sexy, bloody, horror.

Vampire Lovers Lust DVD

 

Vampire Lovers is a 1970 UK horror film by Roy Ward Baker.
With Ingrid Pitt, George Cole and Kate O'Mara. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for the UK cinema release. Cuts gradually restored until fully uncut by 2008

Summary Review: A Gem

The Countess is called away to tend a sick friend and imposes on the General to accept her daughter Marcilla as a houseguest. Some of the villagers begin dying, however, and the General's daughter Laura soon gets weak and pale, but Marcilla is there to comfort her.

Vampire Lovers is a particularly fine example and a cultural milestone that heralded the arrival of vampires as being romantic, charismatic and seductive.

Essentially defining the vampire for the generation of films that would follow Ingrid Pitt carries the cast and production effortlessly on a tide of charisma, charm, grace and almost preternatural beauty.

The film's much vaunted eroticism, through solely projections of male fantasy, are undoubtedly stirring. Ingrid's seduction of Madeline Smith when she chases her round the room before falling onto the bed alongside her is as erotic as anything I have seen onscreen.

Vampire Lovers is a gem which deserves to be savoured and relished.

There are 2 further points that have been discussed:

  • An extended opening decapitation, showing it from another angle. This cut was never restored, maybe lost, or maybe never made it into the final cut anyway.
  • There's also a rumour that there was a final shot with a female vampire biting into a bloody breast. Nothing has been found to support the rumour.

The BBFC commented:

  • 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 15 classification but that the requested 12A certificate could be achieved by making cuts in five sequences in order to remove sight of a flick knife being opened and to remove or reduce a number of crude visual and verbal sex references. When the finished version of the film was submitted, all five scenes had been reduced acceptably and the film was classified 12A .

Amazon Review: Quality-looking film

A pair of bisexual women living in a dark, decaying mansion have a craving for blood and sex. Hitchhiking in long black cloaks, they lure men home and then take them to bed, slash them with knives, and dump the bodies, making it look like a car wreck. They like one guy so much they keep him around for days and he knows something bad is happening, but he's not sure what. Some people camping nearby also suspect that the women are up to strange things....

The violence is strong even though there's more blood than gore, plenty of sex and nudity, and some very lyrical, beautiful scenes. The ending throws a whole new, darker twist on the proceedings and ties it all together nicely. It has kind of a "Hammer Films" look to it, but the storyline is more along the lines of Jean Rollin. Even though the budget was small, this is a quality-looking film.

Summary Review: Pleasant enough

This is a German version of the classic Emmanuelle. An Austrian convent schoolgirl inherits her uncle's string of brothels in the Far East.

Sex scenes here are of the very softcore variety (The whipping scenes are limp, lame and some of the least convincing around).

Olivia Pascal is absolutely lovely as are two of the other ladies but the rest of the cast far less so.  Acting quality is par for course in a softcore flick - fairly mediocre.

As mildly amusing erotica, it's a pleasant enough way to spend the evening.

Summary Notes

Kowalski works for a car delivery service. He takes delivery of a 1970 Dodge Challenger to take from Colorado to San Francisco, California. Shortly after pickup, he takes a bet to get the car there in less than 15 hours. After a few run-ins with motorcycle cops and highway patrol they start a chase to bring him into custody. Along the way, Kowalski is guided by Supersoul - a blind DJ with a police radio scanner. Throw in lots of chase scenes, gay hitchhikers, a naked woman riding a motorbike, lots of Mopar and you've got a great cult hit from the early 70's.

As the boy was never present in the same place as the scene of sex, this material could be restored. But the rape scene was felt to endorse 'rape myth' attitudes and cuts were still required to remove this material.

    Ultimate Versus Tak Sakaguchi

  MPAA
Unrated
  2000 US/Japan action film by Ryûhei Kitamura

There is an Unrated Director's Cut.

Ultimate Versus is an Extended Version produced 3 years after the initial release with extra CGI material, new fights and changes to the music score.

From US Amazon : A Cult Hit

Versus is a cult hit from the beginning. Ryuhei Kitamura's film has all the ingredients for stylish mayhem: Zombies, Guns & Gangsters, Samurai Swordplay, Slick humor, a cute chick, anime-like fantasy and mystery. The story revolves around prisoner escapee KSC2-303(Tak Sakaguchi, from Shinobi, Death Trance, Azumi) stuck in the Forest of Resurrection to seek safe haven. Unfortunately, the crime lord supposed to grant him this has his own motives and he finds himself against a mysterious supernatural opponent to whom he is linked. This flick is a stylish relentless, rampaging zombie action-noir-horror hybrid that Hollywood probably wishes it thought of it first.

The difference between the R1 Ultimate Edition and the previous R1 Special edition are:

  • More Blood and gore.
  • It looked like all the fight scenes have been extended.
  • added: a renewal scene- Dark hero encounters zombies(3 scenes) more extended. Back-flips mayhem galore
  • Zombies holding katana swords in the beginning scene.
  • Ohba extended zombie encounter scene
  • extended action sequence, zombie encounter- 3 Assassins going to the forest meeting a lot of zombies instead of just meeting up with Matsuda and Ohba.
  • Katayama extended fight scene with assasins.
  • New music/new dialogue on some scenes. Added scenes appear a lot sharper than the film itself. The film itself is re-mastered, although it still maintains that murky look.
  • Extra CGI and color correction
  • And a lot more of added 11 minutes of action and mayhem!!

Well I have some basic training with their use (and I know some good martial artists who are proficient) and I can absolutely guarantee that without extensive training (many months at least) the only person you'll hurt with nunchaku is yourself. They are a difficult weapon at best.

Which is exactly the point made by A Very Brady Sequel - and I repeat my allegation that the BBFC-snipped version is actually more dangerous than the uncut version, because while the nunchakas are still visible, the repeated scenes of the user knocking himself out with them have largely been removed.

Some of the goriest moments were blurred by using digital effects that suggest that the recording camera was just having technical problems right at the following moments:
  • When the cult leader cuts the camera man's throat, the camera has an image error and doesn't show the bloody details.
  • When the mass suicide happens, the picture is distorted again in the R-Rated. The bloody headshots are disguised by this effect.
  • The enormously headshot with the shotgun that causes the cult member to lose half of his head was made more harmless by distortion
  • When the missing student shoots himself in the head with the revolver, this is hidden by distortion

Victim Blu ray Dirk Bogarde

Victim is a 1961 UK crime drama by Basil Dearden.
Starring Dirk Bogarde, Sylvia Syms and Dennis Price. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

An important landmark in censorship history as it was the first UK film to mention the word 'homosexual'. The BBFC cut 1 line of dialogue for an X rated cinema release, albeit after an appeal which cancelled 3 other cuts to dialogue. The age classification tumbled from 16 in 1961, 15 in 1986, 12 in 2004 and PG in 2005. The US release was also controversial with an initial refusal in 1961 for a rating under the Hayes Code. Times were a changing and the film was released the following year.

Summary Notes

A prominent lawyer goes after a blackmailer who threatens gay men with exposure (homosexual acts still being illegal). But he's gay himself.

UK: From IMDb .

This was the first English language film to use the word homosexual. Due to the film's subject matter the BBFC studied the script before official submission and several lines of anti-homosexual dialogue were removed.

Eventually John Trevelyan agreed to pass the film after cuts to 4 lines of dialogue including Melville Farr's confession to his wife of his homosexual urges ( Because I wanted him. I WANTED him! ).

Surprisingly 3 of these were rescinded upon appeal, including Farr's legendary admission, and the only cut made to the film was the removal of a line of dialogue referring to an adolescent boy making the wrong choice .

US: See article from en.wikipedia.org .

The film Victim was deemed to be too frank and liberal in its treatment of homosexuality, and, thus, was initially not given approval by the censorship code.

However, in 1962, the Hollywood Production Code had agreed to lift the ban on films using homosexuality as a plot device. A few years later the code itself would be replaced by the Motion Picture Association of America, which introduced age-appropriate classification for films. Initially, Victim was generally classified as an adult film, often with the X classification that was initially given to pornographic films.

When Victim was released on VHS in America (1986), it was given the PG-13 rating.

Summary Review : Surreal

A sleazy cable-TV programmer begins to see his life and the future of media spin out of control in a very unusual fashion when he acquires a new kind of programming for his station.

In Videodrome, James Woods plays a Canadian television entrepreneur, a man who provides material - usually suspect, often porn - for cable TV. In the course of his seedy research he finds a pirate broadcast of a strange, compelling programme. The torture and masochism he glimpses as the programme hisses and breaks up is ... well, it looks real. Or is it just incredibly well made, with the interference and fluctuating picture quality just an example of good engineering and clever directing, simulating clandestine status to give the show a bit of edge?

A disturbing, thought-provoking, hugely entertaining film. If you enjoy the unusual, if you appreciate the surreal, if you like to be challenged and explore irony, this may be a movie you'll love.

The film was originally viewed by the BBFC in an incomplete form, with the music score unfinished and the opening and closing credits missing.

During this advice screening, the BBFC requested that a heavy crotch kick and a double neck chop, both given by Bond, be removed from the film to get a PG rating. These cuts occur during the fight in the hidden room under Zoran's stable. If you watch the scene closely, or even frame by frame, the scene is somewhat sloppy in a couple of places. When the film was edited, the pre-cut version was submitted for a formal rating.

During this stage of classification, the Board asked for an alteration to the opening titles on a shot of an almost nude woman. Its hard to speculate which woman this refers to, but viewing the titles it seems likely that it could be the woman seen through a scope near the beginning, who becomes defocused and blurry whenever she turns the front of body towards the camera, or the mirrored image of the dancing women at the end as Michael Wilson's name appears. She too, goes out of focus on a profile shot where her nipples almost become clearly visible.

With this last change made, the PG rating was awarded.

Summary Notes: Visually stunning

A girl arrives from London to visit her estranged relatives in a remote castle for the reading of her father's will. After a while she discovers that they are all in fact dead and her decision to live with them turns into a nightmare. Unable to leave she's drawn into a macabre underworld through visions of nude satanic rituals and her own impending sacrifice.

The movie is very stylish as is typical with Franco's work, but also rather visually stunning, with the shots of the lush forest surrounding the chateau.

Summary Review: Looking Good

Christine gets her big chance at modelling when she applies at Sybil Waite's agency. Together with Christine's sister Betty they go to a castle for the weekend for a photo shoot

On one hand critics criticised: yeah there's this coven of witches, and a couple of cute girls are being lured into it, but that doesn't prevent this film from being only so-so at best. One of the girls becomes the plaything of the head female witch, but any potential eroticism is wasted as they never actually do anything together. Aside from a couple of brief moments when the girls are without their clothes, this film was just plain boring.

On the other hand some critics have lightened up on the film seeing it in its 2012 pristine transfer. Perhaps because it makes for even more appreciation of the beautiful Ann and Vicki Michelle.

See BBFC press release from bbfc.co.uk :

Visions of Ecstasy is a 19 minute short film, featuring a sequence in which a figure representing St Teresa of Avila interacts sexually with a figure representing the crucified Christ. When the film was originally submitted to the BBFC in 1989, for video classification only, the Board refused to issue a classification certificate. This decision was taken on the grounds that the publication of the film, which the issue of a BBFC certificate would permit, might constitute an offence under the common law test of blasphemous libel.

The Board is required, as part of the terms of its designation under the Video Recordings Act 1984, to seek to avoid classifying any work that might infringe the criminal law. Therefore, the Board had no alternative at the time but to refuse a classification. The Board's decision to refuse a classification to the film was subsequently upheld by the independent Video Appeals Committee.

In 2008, section 79 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act abolished the common law offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel. This means that the BBFC is no longer entitled to consider whether the publication of the film might comprise a blasphemous libel.

The BBFC has carefully considered Visions of Ecstasy in terms of its current classification Guidelines. These reflect both the requirements of UK law and the wishes of the UK public, as expressed through regular large scale consultation exercises. With the abolition of the offence of blasphemy, the Board does not consider that the film is in breach of any other UK law that is currently in force. Nor does the Board regard the film as likely to cause harm to viewers in the terms envisioned by the Video Recordings Act.

The Board recognises that the content of the film may be deeply offensive to some viewers. However, the Board's Guidelines reflect the clear view of the public that adults should have the right to choose their own viewing, provided that the material in question is neither illegal nor harmful. In the absence of any breach of UK law and the lack of any credible risk of harm, as opposed to mere offensiveness, the Board has no sustainable grounds on which to refuse a classification to Visions of Ecstasy in 2012. Therefore the film has been classified for video release at 18 without cuts.

The BBFC decision was subsequently appealed to the Video Appeals Committee who upheld the ban.

Director Nigel Wingrove then took his case to the European Court of Human Rights , but again lost his case. By Mark Kermode:

Visions of Ecstasy, an innocuous (if rather silly) short film depicting 'the ecstatic and erotic visions of St Teresa of Avila was banned in the UK in 1989. In the film, St Teresa is first seduced by her own sexual psyche, and then mounts and caresses the crucified body of Christ. Technical shortcomings notwithstanding (hands which seem to move freely despite apparently being nailed down) the film raised a problem for the BBFC, which is forbidden from classifying material which may infringe the laws of the land.

Despite support from the likes of Derek Jarman, the BBFC concluded that, if prosecuted, a 'reasonable jury' was likely to convict Visions of Ecstasy as blasphemous. Not to be defeated, director Nigel Wingrove took his case to the European Court of Human Rights, arguing that the very existence of a blasphemy law contravened the freedoms of expression enshrined in the European Convention of Human Rights.

In a mealy-mouthed ruling, the Court agreed that Freedom of expression constitutes one of the essential foundations of a democratic society , but with the caveat that freedom carries with it duties and responsibilities including a duty to avoid as far as possible an expression that is, in regard to objects of veneration [i.e. religion], gratuitously offensive to others and profanatory . Which effectively meant that Wingrove was allowed his freedom of expression unless such freedom offended his Christian peers. In which case, he wasn't...

Cut by the BBFC for 1982 cinema release. The same cut version was briefly banned as Video Nasty in 1984. Released again in the same cut form on VHS in 1986. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: Not your everyday slasher

A crazed, women-hating killer (Ironside) attacks journalist Deborah Ballin (Grant). When he discovers that his attack didn't kill Deborah, he comes to the hospital to finish what he started.

The movie is really quite tense at times. The attack at Deborah's home is frightening, especially the dumb waiter scene. And the climactic chase is amazingly pulled off. The acting is alright and the music is also to note, and adds a lot of atmosphere.

This is much different from what you'd probably expect, and is worth a look. Definitely not your everyday slasher.

Cut by the BBFC for an 18 rated softcore release. uncut in the US

Summary Review: Close to hardcore

At a college in Rome, a professor, nicknamed Dodo is in a deep depression. His stunningly beautiful wife has just left him for another man. Dodo wants her back very badly and has erotic daydreams about her. A beautiful young student in his class asks him for a ride home and seduces the lucky man, but still he wonders about his wife and her lover.

What is so unique about Brass' films of this decade (and to a slightly lesser degree his 1980s films as well) is how they manage to combine eroticism with an explicitness that is close to hardcore porn, and that without ever looking seedy or overly stylish. Greatly supporting this effect are the music of Riz Ortolani and the excellent cinematography by Massimo Di Venanzo.

With L'Uomo che guarda Brass seems to be telling the porno makers: this is how a sex film can and should look like.
