The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It...

Comments on the BBFC cuts


Link Here19th July 2021
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a 2021 USA horror mystery thriller by Michael Chaves
Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Julian Hilliard BBFC link 2020 IMDb
Uncut and MPA R rated in the US. This was initially rated 18 uncut, by the BBFC but the distributors preferred a cut 15 rated version for 2021 cinema release. Both versions are available for UK home video release. The film is rated 16 uncut  by IFCO for Irish cinema release.
UK: The UK edit was passed 15 for strong threat, horror, violence after BBFC category cuts:
  • 2021 Warner Bros video
  • 2021 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

The distributor chose to reduce bloody injury detail in a suicide scene in order to obtain a 15 classification. An uncut 18 classification was available.

Of course the BBFC is referring to vertical wrist slitting which is disallowed at 15.

See the uncut scene in video from streamable.com . Ben comments:

I've seen the uncut footage and 18 is absurdly harsh.  It's demonic possession and *technically* self-harm, but not an attempted suicide at all as the BBFC called it. You see glass and blood on the man's wrist but no clear sign of process and injury

The Charge of The Light Brigade

Link Here

The Charge of the Light Brigade is a 1968 UK historical war drama by Tony Richardson
Starring Trevor Howard, Vanessa Redgrave and John Gielgud Melon Farmers link  BBFC link 2020  IMDb

Although the cinema version was complete and 'A' rated, the PG rated 1993 UK video release was cut by 7s to edit footage of horse-falls. In the US the film was shortened and this US version was then released in the UK in 2008, again with cuts (this time 14s) to remove the horse falls, but was also uprated to 12.

UK: The US Version was previously passed 12 uncut for moderate violence and racist references after 14s of BBFC cuts for animal cruelty:

Promotional Material

From director Tony Richardson comes this brilliant retelling of tragic events during the Crimean War between Britain and Russia in the 1850s.

A British cavalry division, led by the overbearing Lord Cardigan (Trevor Howard), engages in an infamously reckless strategic debacle against a Russian artillery battery. An inept chain of command and the arrogance of the aristocratic officers nearly destroys the brigade.

Interpersonal wars within the unit, including unfaithful wives and a rivalry between Lord Cardigan and Captain Nolan (David Hemmings), heighten the conflict.

The Damned

The Damned is a 1963 UK Sci-Fi horror drama by Joseph Losey.
Starring Macdonald Carey, Shirley Anne Field and Viveca Lindfors. IMDb

Cut prior to 1963 X rated cinema release over child concerns. It was further cut for US theatrical  release. The cuts were restored in 2010 for 12 rated DVD and MPAA Unrated home video release in the US.
UK: The Director's Cut/Restored Version was previously passed 12 uncut for moderate violence for:
  • 2021 Powerhouse Special Edition R0 Blu-ray at UK Amazon #ad released on 19th July 2021

Promotional Material

Having been exiled from Hollywood in the 1950s, American filmmaker Joseph Losey settled in Britain, where he made a series of remarkable and highly individual works.

A film about the horrors of the nuclear age, and the irresponsible science which spawned it, The Damned is one of Losey's - and Hammer's - most idiosyncratic films, and one which has grown in reputation through the years.
