From IMDb:

The director's cut features around 20 minutes of extra and re-edited footage. Included are new and extended scenes between Rudy and Ashley discussing their situation when kidnapped by Gabriel.

Also included is an extended and more graphic version of the scene where Gabriel throws darts as Rudy, also a scene where he heals his wounds from the darts is included as well as an extended love scene.

Other changes include the omission of Love Rollercoaster from the casino scene, which is replaced by a longer version with a much more suspense twist to it. Finally, another scene is extended where Gabriel shoots the ice around a fisherman sending him into the freezing lake to die as opposed to the original version which merely hinted at his killing the man.

Summary Review : Initiation into Giallo
This is a gorgeous film, it is rich in content and thought, it has an old school story telling feel about it, fantastic music by "Goblin", it is shocking and suspenseful, whilst showing some glorious cinematography by Luigi Keveiller.

Brilliant, Dario is unique and this is my favourite film of his, and one of my ALL time favourite films. A wonderful initiation into the world of Giallo.

Deep River Savages is a 1972 Italy horror romance by Umberto Lenzi.
With Ivan Rassimov, Me Me Lai and Prasitsak Singhara. YouTube icon IMDb
Banned by the BBFC for 1975 cinema release. Banned as a video nasty in 1984. Passed 18 after extensive animal cruelty cuts for 2003 DVD. Slightly fewer cuts for 2016 DVD & Blu-ray. Uncut in the US.
Summary Notes: Not much gore

Forerunner of Cannibal Ferox set in South East Asian cannibal infested jungles. Tongue amputations are the order of the day after snacking on traditionally served monkey brains.

A photographer on assignment in the rain forest is ambushed and held slave by a primitive tribe, until the chief's daughter chooses him as her groom. After being initiated by various tortures, he becomes a part of the tribe and helps them against modern dangers and a cannibal tribe they're at war with.

I liked this one strictly for its exoticness. Me Me Lay looks great dressed or naked. She has a great face. I have the Prism edition video. That one is missing a brief cannibal scene that later showed up in Lenzi's Eaten Alive by the Cannibals . The cinematography was well done and I may catch some heat for this but I actually liked the music.

The love scene in the river came very close to XXX. A well placed bush (no pun intended) kept it soft-core. Not much gore, so jungle flick fans should like it. I know I did.

Two extra scenes shot by Jack Hill were added for the Theatrical Version. This version was cut by the BBFC for an X rated cinema release in 1963. The uncut Theatrical Version was BBFC 15 rated for home video. The two Jack Hill scenes were removed in the Director's Cut which was also 15 rated by the BBFC.

There is also a gimmicky optional prologue running 6 or 7 minutes where a psychology doctor tests the audience to see if they are stable enough to watch the film.

Summary Review: A Tad Slow Paced

When her husband John has a heart attack while out in a rowboat on the lake, Louise Haloran throws his body overboard and later tells the family that he has left on an urgent business trip.

Dementia 13 was the result of producer Roger Corman's infamous apprentice program at AIP; Corman was shooting his own film and let Francis Ford Coppola get his first director's credit by shooting Dementia 13 on the same location.

Dementia 13 is a nice little low-budget horror film for which the biggest complaint is that the pace is a tad slow. The story is set in Ireland and if it bears a strong resemblance to Corman's film adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe .

Dementia 13 is not a gory film, but more of a character study, which alone makes it somewhat atypical for the time and genre. Coppolla manages to create atmosphere so that the film is more of a psychological exercise than it is a splatter flick.

Thanks to Scott. This low-budget 90s actioner that had the unfortunate luck of being submitted shortly after Dunblaine, resulting in very heavy cuts, including to virtually every instance of gun violence. The distributor ended up having to cut more than required though, largely for continuity reasons.

Total running time cut: 3 minutes 58 seconds. The BBFC cuts list, (* with notes by Scott), reads

Substantial cuts in torture and violence are required for 18. (Demonstration tape enclosed indicating that nearly all edits involve adjustment of audio tracks).

  • At 6 mins Remove repeat shots of electrocution of governor and padre, including urination shots.
  • At 6½mins Reduce shooting of man in blazer and white shirt by removing 2nd and 3rd medium close shots into body, and immediately afterwards remove close shot of urination and further blasting of man in white shirt.
  • At 8 mins Remove shot of man swinging butterfly knife.
  • At 15½ mins Remove second shot and resulting blood cloud into gunman in white boiler-suit.
  • At 19 mins Reduce threat to woman's eye by removing close shot of cigarette approaching it and subsequent shot on monitor. Also remove later close side shot of bloody torn ear, substituting earlier shots of van.
  • At 20 mins Remove cigarette threat to man and sight of his face contorted in pain.
  • At 22 mins Remove heavy blow to face of semi-conscious man in chair, returning to synch after it.
  • At 23½ mins Reduce Russian roulette sequence.
  • At 25 mins Reduce sight of comatose woman hanging from fence. *(Passed in the trailer!)
  • At 35½ mins Remove pan over display of combat weapons. *(Also passed in the trailer. This scene was removed in its entirety from the film, for continuity reasons.)
  • At 48 mins Reduce beating up of gagged and bound man.
  • At 48½ mins In subsequent shoot-out, remove close shots of bullet impacts on man's body.
  • At 55 mins Remove gang assault on woman in street. *(Brief clip of this was passed in the trailer. Again, the entire scene was removed from the film, although I'm not sure why. The lead character interrupts the assault in an alleyway, then walks onto the street and shoots up the front of a shop - the second half of the scene, following the assault, clearly posed no problems, so I don't know why the distro removed the whole thing.)
  • At 61 mins Reduce shoot-out at bank by removing shootings and blood clouds.
  • At 68 mins Reduce prolonged firing into figure by white car.
  • At 73 mins Reduce violence in shoot-out in flat by removing close impacts.
  • At 74 mins Remove neck break from rear of man on motorcycle.
  • At 77 mins Remove point blank shooting of police chief.

Banned by the BBFC from 1985 until 2003 when it was passed 18 after 2:25s of cuts. The BBFC cuts were waived for 2017 DVD. The film started out as Sexorcism/Exorcism and was significantly reworked reworked with new material to become El Sadico de Notre-Dame. The legacy is that there are now multiple versions with different mixes of sex and violence including a hardcore version.
Summary Review : Good but Not Great
Exorcism is a good but not great film. Like so many of Franco's films EXORCISM is at once brilliant and amateurish.

Franco stars as a kinky priest who serves GOD by ridding the world of sinners with his Sword of the Lord. His best moments are shared with his lover/partner Lina Romay. It's always interesting to watch the couple interact together especially during sadistic scenes.

Despite it's strong scenes of violence EXORCISM is not a gory film. The bloodiest scenes involve the beheading of a pigeon and the removal of a woman's entrails. Franco claims (on the commentary track) that the pigeon is a special effect. I seriously doubt that what Franco says is true.

Exorcism (Synapse's version) is entirely new 94 min transfer from available materials from Eurocine of Paris . It's considered the most coherent of all possible versions. It contains none of the hardcore footage and does not use any of the footage added in 1979-80 for the reworked El Sadico de Notre-Dame -version. However, there are gore scenes and explanatory scenes that are missing from all other versions. So this is the complete gore version, with some softcore.

The BBFC commented :

This was another shocker from the 70s, from a film-maker most of whose cinematic work appeared to revel in the tying up and abusing of naked women. Here their bodies were liberally splashed with blood, stage blood, in rituals acted out as a turn-on for audiences in search of sexual arousal. Later each evening, we see the rituals re-enacted sadistically and homicidally by a criminal psychopath (played by the film-maker himself), whose deeds perform the same function as the video viewer. The Board considered whether cuts could make such a work acceptable, but given its multifarious images of women stripped, inverted, bound, gagged, manacled at ankles and wrists, with blood smeared on bodies, especially breasts, and with blades driven into flesh, we concluded that cuts would have been so extensive as to leave little of the misogynistic framework intact. This might have been no loss on artistic or social grounds, but it would have left an unviable video commercially.

See article from strangethingsarehappening.com . Distributor Nigel Wingrove wrote:

Twenty years ago Redemption Films released Succubus and I received a written warning from the British Board of Film Classification, that Jess Franco was a director whose films the BBFC regarded as bordering on criminal. I was told that were I to attempt to release other films by him or to bring them into the country there would be consequences... A year later I submitted Demoniacs and Sadomania and both were categorically banned with the implicit threat that by pushing the work of Jess Franco I was, indirectly, championing criminal sexual material and that if I continued I too would face not civil, but criminal proceedings.

The BBFC said of DEMONIAC:

... The Board has never granted a BBFC certificate to any film or video which seeks to encourage sexual sadism, and this film is clearly sadistic in that it seems 'to have no purpose or justification other than to reinforce or sell the idea that it can be highly pleasurable to inflict injury, pain or humiliation (often in a sexual context) on others' (Home Office Report on Obscenity and Film Censorship, Williams, HMSO, 1979)....|

...The work of this particular film maker has often fallen well outside the parameters of BBFC standards because of the manner in which it presents scenes of vicious sexual violence or of violence to women in a sexually arousing context, offering little pleasure to the viewer other than a conscious vicarious gratification of misogyny. Where such emotions focus on the harming of others, the Board must always consider drawing a line, as we have in refusing a video certificate to DEMONIAC .

Redemption Films challenged the banning of these films, along with Bare Behind Bars legally, and lost. We then sought and won leave to judicially review the BBFC's entire operation, a massive undertaking and one which would, had we pursued it, opened up all the machinations of the BBFC's internal workings to public scrutiny, however, we ran out of money and had to wait until our battle over pornography several years later to finally oust the BBFC chairman James Ferman which in turn heralded in a period of more liberal censorship.

Summary Review: Surreal, hypnotic, absorbing

Jean Rollin makes movies that perplex movie viewers - his films are always poetically surreal, hypnotic, absorbing, enchanting and hallucinatory, and almost never have a coherent storyline. They are highly unconventional and appreciated by fans but hated by others

This films sees a gang of pirates rape the two sole survivors of a ship wreck. The violated girls are rescued by the strange inhabitants of a supposedly haunted island, where they are granted supernatural powers to strike revenge against the pirates.

Summary Review: Goes straight for the jugular,

A group of people are trapped in a large West Berlin movie theater infected by ravenous demons whom proceed to kill and posses the humans one-by-one thereby multiplying their numbers.

Demons is cited on the commentary that accompanies this DVD as being one of the most important Italian horror films of the 80's, and indeed it is. Bypassing the flabby, overcooked acting, unevenly distributed action and horrendous scores of many a Euro-horror, Demons goes straight for the jugular, eyeballs, guts and groin. This film is certainly one of the best paced non-American horror flicks of the decade and contains a level of lovingly crafted, sickeningly visceral gore which just wouldn't happen these days.

For a European film the acting isn't actually too bad and the set is very effective. This film of course has bad points. Loads of them, but as is sometimes the case with these trashy horrors, the bad bits are so bad that they end up enhancing the enjoyment of the picture. I love It.

Summary Review: Lush Looking

A physician discovers that two children are being kept virtually imprisoned in their house by their father. He investigates, and discovers a web of sex, incest and satanic possession.

Lush looking and skillfully illustrated Hammer Gothic horror period piece that might not have the class of some other Hammer entries, but it sure was entertaining.
