Reinventing Marvin

Reinventing Marvin is a 2017 France drama by Anne Fontaine.
Starring Finnegan Oldfield, Grégory Gadebois and Vincent Macaigne. BBFC link IMDb

BBFC cuts were required for 15 rated cinema release and DVD in 2018.

The BBFC commented:

  • Cuts required to remove potentially indecent images of a child in accordance with the Protection of Children Act 1978.

The BBFC further commented in board meeting minutes:

Reinventing Marvin is a French drama submitted for cinema classification which features a scene in which the central character is subjected to a sexual assault by an older boy at school.

The Head of Compliance requested proofs of age for the actors involved, which confirmed the central character is played by an actor who was 15 at the time of filming while the older boy is played by an actor who was 18.

The scene was viewed again by the President and Chief Executive who concluded that the scene includes a potentially indecent image of a child within the meaning of the Protection of Children Act 1978. Accordingly, a cut was required.

The company appealed against the proposed cut, submitting documentary proof that included parental consent and information about the child protection steps taken on set.

The scene was viewed again by the President, Chief Executive, Head of Compliance and Compliance Manager in the light of those further assurances. However, it was concluded that the fact the film makers did not intend to create an indecent image does not alter the fact of the indecency of the image in question. The cut was upheld and has now been made.

ENTER... IF YOU DARE!

A talented and versatile journeyman, director Sergio Martino (The Case of the Scorpion's Tail, Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key) has lent his talents to multiple genres across his long and varied career, but it is undoubtedly his giallo thrillers from the early 70s for which he is best known. Among the most highly acclaimed of these, 1973's Torso revels in the genre's time-honored traditions while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the modern slasher movie.

A sex maniac is prowling the streets of Perugia, targeting picturesque university town's female students. Alarmed at plummeting life expectancy of the student body, Jane (Suzy Kendall, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) and her three friends elope to a secluded country villa only to discover that, far from having left the terror behind, they've brought it with them!

Also known as ''Carnal Violenc''e, Torso was released in Italy towards the end of the giallo boom before enjoying a second life on the American grindhouse circuit. Co-starring Tina Aumont (Salon Kitty) and Luc Merenda (The Violent Professionals), the film finds its director at the top of his game, delivering copious levels of violence, sleaze and one of the tensest cat-and-mouse games ever committed to celluloid!

    A pair of incredible action-adventure extravaganza's from the legendary Jackie Chan , Project A and Project A Part II make their long overdue debut on Blu-ray in the UK from brand new 2K restorations. Starring three of the greatest martial-arts action stars of all time (Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao), the Project A films blended unparalleled martial artistry, death defying stunts and physical comedy in a way that has yet to be matched.

    Project A Jackie plays Sergeant Dragon Ma, a turn-of-the-century coastguard, hot on the trail of a ruthless band of cut-throat pirates, intent on spreading a trail of blood and mayhem across the South China Seas. Project A features some of the most dangerous stunts of Jackie s career, including homages to Buster Keaton s Steamboat Bill, Jr. and Harold Lloyd s Safety Last! .

    Project A Part II After the events of the first film, Dragon Ma is given a new assignment, to clean up crime and corruption in the roughest part of town. The pressure was on to top the first film in terms of sheer spectacle, but Project A Part II rises to the challenge and delivers one of the most stunt-packed, rip-roaring action-adventures of all time.

    Promotional Material

    The late great Umberto Lenzi gave audiences some of the most notorious video nasties including his legendary gut-crunchers THE MAN FROM DEEP RIVER (1972) and CANNIBAL FEROX (1981). However, the maestro of macabre, nightmare-making images was rightly most proud of his giallo classics - most famously represented by the colourful intrigue of SPASMO (1974) and the gruelling gore of EYEBALL (1975). For NIGHTMARE BEACH, released in 1988, Lenzi would claim that a troubled production process meant he took a 'backseat' role - although it is difficult not to notice his blood-splashed paw-print all over this terrifying tale of a madman in a motorcycle helmet who is taking out drunk and delicious young co-eds all over the sparkling sands of South Florida. As the body count creeps up, Miami detective John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) tries to keep ahead of the curve in this carnage-packed, late-day Lenzi gem that is only now gaining a belated British bow for horror-hungry addicts and completists of Italian trash-terror!

    Banned in 1998

    The video was submitted by Dave Gregory from the Exploited VHS label in 1998 and he made it absolutely clear that Whittam Smith was personally responsible for the ban. The story goes like this:

    I submitted Deadbeat at Dawn back in July hoping to release it alongside Vigilante . The BBFC sent me a not entirely unexpected cuts list for Deadbeat totalling two minutes of footage. I made around fifty cuts to remove all sight of chain sticks and throwing stars exactly as they requested. Most of the gore in the film passed unnoticed. 

    I resubmitted the film and started sending out preview copies, printed the sleeves, and ran a couple of ads, under the foolish assumption that because I had cut what they asked the film would be approved. Not so. Ferman watched it and through his secretary informed me that there was a problem with the violence in the film. A discussion was to be staged on the matter two days after the original release date: Oct. 26th. According to Ferman, opinions were split among the examiners.

    Then Whittam Smith entered the room, overruled all discussion and declared that the film was to be rejected. Democratic discussion! Anyway, Ferman said they didn't want to issue another cuts list and that I could submit a toned down version if I wanted to. He had this impression of the film reaching a massive audience of impressionable. I told him that he ought to consider, in future, the actual market for a film of this type. 1500 units max! Not a huge blockbuster by any account, but a healthy specialist market.

    Jim VanBebber s notorious, blood-drenched cult classic Deadbeat at Dawn rises again on the advent of its 30th anniversary, newly restored for the first time on Blu-ray. Locked and loaded with a raft of new extras, see Deadbeat as you ve never seen it before in all its head-busting, bone-crushing glory!

    Written by, directed by and starring VanBebber, Deadbeat follows the story of Goose a gang leader whose girlfriend is brutally slaughtered when he attempts to leave the thug life behind. Pulled back into the gang, who ve now formed an uneasy alliance with the thugs that butchered his girl, Goose sees an opportunity to exact his brutal, deadly revenge.

    The very definition of DIY, independent filmmaking (VanBebber quit film school after his first year and used his student loan to fund the movie), Deadbeat at Dawn surpasses its low-budget origins to create a revenge movie that delivers more thrills and bloody spills than all of Chuck Norris films combined.

    Summary Notes

    "My Sweet Satan" - Ricky Casland hangs himself in prison. Flashbacks and discussions with friends trace his degeneracy into drugs and Satan worship that culminates in the crime that put him behind bars. "Roadkill: the Final Days of John Martin" - John Martin stays at home a lot watching TV and eating of the bountiful harvest from the roads. He only goes out when he needs more supplies, and he doesn't always limit himself to roadkill. "Doper" - Barry and his friends smoke a lot of pot, and generally live for the party, but manage to maintain responsible employment, as evidenced by supportive interviews with Barry's coworkers.

    The legacy of the ever-admired Lucio Fulci lives on with ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS PART 3!!!! In 1979 director Lucio Fulci created a video nasty legend with his masterpiece ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, banned in Britain and dragged through the tabloid gutter as an example of a film likely to deprave and corrupt anyone foolhardy enough to fall for its ferocious charms. An admittedly troubled sequel was born in 1988, for which Fulci returned, but the best was yet to come with 1989's outrageously gory and ghastly ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS 3! Directed by Claudio Fragasso (thanks to Fulci's battle will ill-health), the man behind the notorious TROLL 2 and the producer of the infamous and formerly banned splatter opus ZOMBIE CREEPING FLESH, the innards and excitement comes thick and fast in this first class follow-up which returns its witless characters to the Caribbean. As with the original gut-chomper, a voodoo legend once again unleashes hordes of shambling corpses seeking to chow down on anyone stupid enough to be trespassing on hallowed ground! Years since it scandalised audiences, the third in the ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS franchise is back to bite a way into your Blu Ray collection -- available in HD for the very first time in the UK. Complete your ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS collection with this outrageously gruesome piece of eighties nasty-nostalgia and you may even convince us to release part four!

    It was the team-up of the century in 1990 when the Italian auteur of excess Dario Argento made this double-feature compendium creeper with DAWN OF THE DEAD helmer George Romero! The result brings together the very best of the United States independent sector with the kingpin of things giallo - giving us the much-loved splatter shocker TWO EVIL EYES! The latest in 88 Films Italian line, Romero's outstanding opening salvo offers us an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", highlighting the sublime Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG/ SWAMP THING) as a scheming widow seeking to exploit the estate of her terminally ill husband. Little does she know, however, that her husband is already ahead of the curve... and planning a little ghoulish vengeance of his own! For Dario Argento's Poe adaptation "The Black Cat", Harvey Keitel (RESERVOIR DOGS/ TAXI DRIVER) essays an eccentric photographer obsessed with death and dismay... although eventually his livelihood encourages him to embark on the ultimate crime. However, there is a super-sick sting in the tale that will leave the hapless camera-man literally hollowed-out from head to toe! We dare you to endure the gruesome and gruelling special effects of Tom Savini (DAY OF THE DEAD) and the provocative, spine-tingling soundtrack of Pino Donaggio (BODY DOUBLE) in this awe-inspiring frightener that is finally available to UK horror buffs in hair-raising HD...!!!

    Dead American Woman - The DVD debut of the never before seen Director's Cut.

    Massacre Video proudly presents the gore filled, darkly comedic, and slightly surreal no-budget horror opus by director Peter Romeo Lambert's (NURSE JILL) DEAD AMERICAN WOMAN. A film that nightmarishly blends the aesthetics of underground film making with slasher set pieces. Co-starring Selwyn Harris (DEVIL IN MISS JONES 5) and an unforgettable performance from Wiley George Finley as Grandpa, DEAD AMERICAN WOMAN makes its official DVD debut, in its never before seen director's cut.

    After being brought back from the grave through 'the excrement of an innocent,' murdered go-go dancer Tabitha (Julie Fabulous) sets out to avenge her death, which was at the hands of snuff film producing religious zealot, Virginia Slim (Heather Marie Vernon). Enlisting the aid of Cynthia, whose young daughter also met a gruesome fate from Virginia and her clown-faced henchman, Happy (Happy Dave), Tabitha begins exacting bloody vengeance against all those who wronged her, in the hope that through her acts of violence she'll earn a place in the kingdom of hell. But with each increasingly brutal slaying, Cythia's own blood lust becomes more and more apparent, leading to unexpected consequences…

    Promotional Material

    From the Italian godfather of gore, Lucio Fulci, comes City of the Living Dead , a notoriously nauseating, compellingly corporeal masterpiece of apocalyptic zombie horror!

    A medium has a mysterious vision of a priest hanging himself... A seemingly dead woman awakes screaming in her coffin... And in the sleepy New England town of Dunwich, a local girl vomits up her intestines and a town misfit has a drill-bit ploughed into his cranium... These hallucinogenic, often grotesque visions punctuate a skeletal story telling of a reporter (Christopher George, The Exterminator , Pieces ) and a psychic (Catriona MacColl, The House by the Cemetery , The Beyond ) who must race against time to prevent hordes of rotting corpses spewing forth from the gates of hell...

    Stridently going beyond the classical stylings of his horror hit Zombie Flesh Eaters , City of the Living Dead sees Fulci eschew conventional narrative logic in favour of a delirious, oneiric mode of storytelling which stresses style, surrealism and atmosphere (as well as offering up bucket-loads of brains, blood and guts!) Presented here in an exclusive 4K restoration with a wealth of extras, Fulci s gore-drenched classic can now be devoured as never before!

    Embraced by a generation of bad movie fans, Troll 2 has become one of the most iconic cult films of its generation, and to this day regularly plays to sold-out theatres of adoring fans.

    Troll The Potter family (including future Law & Order star Michael Moriarty as Harry Potter ) is about to find out there s no place like home when a troublesome troll starts taking over their building, transforming each apartment into an overgrown garden of ancient evil and turning tenants into a horde of hairy hobgoblins.

    Troll 2 After his family moves to the rural community of Nilbog (spoilers, it's goblin spelled backwards), a ghost warns young Joshua Waits that vegetarian goblins want to transform him and his family into plants and then eat them.

    For fans of Ozploitation it is the likes of MAD MAX (1980) or even the trash-tastic TURKEY SHOOT (1982) that may first pop into many a horror hound's mind - however, the cycle offered so much more and never is this clearer than with the surrealist shocks of HARLEQUIN (1980) a true genre standout that was also released under the more ominous moniker of DARK FORCES. In this oddball mix of sci-fi, horror and political espionage (yes, you read that right) a mysterious healer appears in the abode of a leading American senator who finds that his terminally ill son is quickly cured of his leukaemia. The appreciative politician opts to keep this puzzling presence around... although all is not as it seems. With a cast that includes such acclaimed thespians as Robert Powell (TOMMY) and David Hemmings (DEEP RED), the thrills come thick and fast in this genuine curiousity that, once seen, is hard to forget - exactly what one might expect from a script penned by the legendary Ozploitation hand Everett De Roche (LONG WEEKEND, PATRICK, ROAD GAMES, FORTRESS)!

    Canada took the slasher movie to the next level when the country produced the trendsetting BLACK CHRISTMAS in 1974, at the height of what has become known as 'Canuxploitation'. Later shockers from the nation of moose, Mounties and maple syrup included the equally effective MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981) and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME (1981) but by the turn of the eighties the terror-trend was drying up... at least until the plasma-spilling shocks of POPCORN in 1991! This is Canadian slice and dice action par excellence - and returns to the good old days of splashed blood, high body counts and a mysterious killer as a young female screenwriter (played by the great Scream Queen Jill Schoelen from THE STEPFATHER and CUTTING CLASS) suffers nightmares of a strange figure who may well be breaking into the 'reel' world... Postmodern and provocative, and featuring a genre ensemble cast that includes Dee Wallace Stone (THE HOWLING) and Kelly Jo Minter (THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS), POPCORN has maintained a following of macabre movie fans for decades since its release!
