The film's Australian distributor Monster Pictures has said that 2 minutes have been cut to placate the country's film censor.

It was originally noted that the censored version was 7 minutes shorter, but presumably 4 minutes of this can be attributed to a PAL speedup and the other minute to rounding errors.

So the international league table of censorship now reads

3rd place Australia, R18+ rated after 2 minutes of cuts

2nd place UK . 4 seconds cuts

Passed 18 for strong bloody violence, sexualised violence, gory images after 4s of BBFC compulsory cuts for:

  • 2014 Monster Pictures R2 DVD at UK Amazon released on 13th October 2014
The BBFC commented:
  • A cut was required to remove sight of a murderer's erect penis, during a scene of sadistic sexualised violence and threat.

1st place, US, uncut

Uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

  • 2014 Xlrator R1 DVD at US Amazon released on 23rd September 2014

Promotional Material

FOUND is a unique and supremely disturbing coming-of-age story of a boy whose big brother is a serial-killer.

Growing up is tough for Marty. His parents don't understand him and he is bullied at school. He has only his big brother to look up to...that is until he discovers his brother's chilling secret and a severed head in a sports bag at home.

FOUND unravels a gripping and gruesome story that captures what it's like to grow up in the time of VHS tapes and video nasties, as the American dream and everyday suburbia descends into a home-grown hell that will leave even the most hardened horror fan shocked by its disturbing finale.

 

 Updated: Missing Found Footage...

The film was cut by the BBFC for an 18 rated 2014 DVD release. Uncut in the US. Cut by 2 minutes in Australia after being initially banned.

UK: Passed 18 for strong bloody violence, sexualised violence, gory images after 4s of BBFC compulsory cuts for: The BBFC commented:
  • A cut was required to remove sight of a murderer's erect penis, during a scene of sadistic sexualised violence and threat.

The BBFC also provide Extended Classification Information (includes spoilers) :

FOUND is a horror film about a horror-obsessed boy who discovers his older brother is a serial killer.

Scenes of strong bloody violence include sight of beheadings and stabbings. There are strong gory images, both during violence and in the aftermath of violence, including sight of entrails and sight of eyes being gouged out of a severed head and eaten.

In one scene, a woman is tied up and partially stripped, after which it is implied that her breast has been cut off. Although aftemath sight of her bloody chest is seen, there is no detail of the actual cutting. Elsewhere, a rape is attempted but stopped. Another scene implies that sexual violence is taking place off screen.

The film also contains occasional use of strong language ('fuck'), as well as discriminatory terms, such as faggot . There is also strong threat, moderate sex references and breast nudity.

It has been suggested that the BBFC comments about violence being offscreen suggested a pre-cut version. But reviews of the presumably uncut US release concur that some of the climatic violence occurs offscreen in the US release too. (See review from  filmpulse.net .

Taking a closer at the release information, note that the BBFC recorded running time of 103:11s includes 2 components:

  • 97:10s Found
  • 6:04s Dark Dwellers which is the fake horror film featured in the main film (along with a 2nd fake horror, titled Headless

The difference in running time has caused a little confusion in Australia with a version cut by around 2 minutes being noted with a running time 7 minutes less that the original submission. The 5m discrepancy could either be down to a PAL speed up, or else now  could be due to some running times not including the associated Dark Dwellers fake horrors.

Update: Is the UK release of Found pre-cut?

25th September 2014. From MoonMetropolis via twitter

scissors Regarding Found: some of climactic violence is off-screen, but we do see breast-cutting in one scene & sex with severed head.

The breast-cutting & severed head-fucking all take place in context of a fictional film-within-a-film watched by protagonist.

So the fact that the BBFC have indicated that these two scenes are not present then one has to conclude that a pre-cut version was submitted to the BBFC. Perhaps the cut Australian Version or else cut by the UK distributor.
