Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is a 1989 US horror film by Jeff Burr. With Kate Hodge, Ken Foree and R.A. Mihailoff.
Banned by the BBFC for cinema release in 1990. Uncut by 2004. In the US
cut for an R Rating but the Unrated version is uncut.
Summary Review : Unique and interesting
The film itself is extremely well-acted, especially by the lead, Kate Hodge. It
is however, not the most pleasant film you will ever see and if the filmmakers intended it to be a gruelling and punishing experience, they definitely succeeded.
Despite these strong performances and excellent (and very
gruesome) special make-up effects, the completed film is left damaged and confused in several key places. But, it is still one of the better entries in this particular series and is well-worth a look as a unique and interesting horror film.
New Lines Unrated Version
UK: The New
Lines Unrated Version was passed 18 uncut for:
article from movie-censorship.com . A VHS was released in Spain which was a bit
longer than the first Unrated Version and apparently cut differently.
US: The first unrated version, which was at least considerably longer than the R-rated, came out on VHS and
LD soon afterwards in the USA. But it quickly came to light that this unrated version didn't contain all scenes
See pictorial version details from
movie-censorship.com . The Unrated Version is 1:36s shorter then the New Lines Unrated Version. It is missing some banter about hammer design being heard by a couple who are
trussed up and waiting to be dispatched
The rough cut contains the most scenes, however it has never made an official release and the quality is poor
the real trouble began when the film was submitted
to the MPAA for a rating. Its biggest obstacle to overcome (besides its bloody content) was the fact that it mixed dark humor with violence, which was not unlike its predecessors, but was something that the MPAA had a big problem with. Receiving an X
with little to no chance of achieving anything else, the film went through many drastic re-edits, eventually receiving an R-rating. Judging from the deleted scenes that didn't make the final cut, it's fairly tame by comparison and could have potentially
been a much gorier film.

Legacy of Rage is a 1986 Hong Kong action film by Ronny Yu. Starring Brandon Lee, Michael Wong and Regina Kent.
Cut by the BBFC for an 18 rated 1993 VHS release and 2001 DVD. Uncut and
MPAA Unrated in the US.
Brandon plays Brandon Ma, a regular working Joe who holds down two jobs, so he can support his girlfriend May and his dream of owning a motorcycle. Brandon's
best friend is Michael (played by Michael Wong), an ambitious and murderous dope peddler. How Brandon and Michael ever became friends is the biggest mystery in the film. In any case, Michael covets May and so he comes up with a plan that will win her for
him, and solves a problem he's been having. It seems that an undercover cop named Sharky has been using his police connections to dominate the local cocaine trade, so Michael has him killed and uses Brandon as the fall guy. Brandon goes to jail, though
he thinks that he will be released soon thanks to the efforts of his good buddy Michael. Eight years later Brandon finally gets out of jail.
I watched Legacy of Rage after I saw Brandon's final film, The Crow, and I
was literally blown away. Unlike most dubbed films, Brandon's sheer presence and force of character made the film very watchable--I never had a sense that I was missing a part of his performance (although of course I was) because of the intense physical
acting of his character.
The fight and shooting scenes are well balance with thoughtful character development. The final confrontation between Brandon and Michael is often compared to John Woo style Hollywood action epics,
and rightly so...you will rewind it again and again to catch all the action! The initial fight scene between Brandon and the bully is a treat for Bruce Lee fans. Brandon does several Brucisms, like cracking his knuckles by clenching his fists, and
such. This is the only time you will see Brandon emulate his father on film.
Cut in 2006 with the following BBFC comment: The cuts were Compulsory. A warning caption was added to the work, alerting viewers to the danger of performing some of the driving stunts portrayed in the work without proper safety

When the expedition party is attacked by the thugs right after they set out on the travel, the last of the baddies is killed by a sort of death grip, apparantly punctuating his jugular vein. This is shown in both the uncut, the old US
edit and the US trailer! In the UK version you merely see the guy drop to the ground.
When the vampire lords later raid the village, the uncut version shows two girls being dragged out of their homes and stripped,
showing their breasts. In the UK version we only see this happen to one of the girls very briefly.
US: The abbreviated US release version titled, The Seven Brothers Meet Dracula is MPAA R rated

UK: Episode 6 (My Dinner With Nadakhan) was passed PG for mild violence after 1s of BBFC category cuts for:

The BBFC commented:
Company chose to remove a use of discriminatory language ('spazzing') in order to obtain a PG classification. Cut made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 12 classification was available.
Same cuts apply to the 1993 cinema release, 1993 Tartan video & 2008 Sound & Media DVD
Two cuts reported. Quoted from a posting by Michael Brooke:
The BBFC's interpretation of the Child Protection Act, after a
bit of uncertainty in the late 1970s, now seems pretty consistent. Nudity in itself isn't enough to justify cutting - there has to be actual sexual contact of some kind. I don't mean full intercourse or anything like that - one of the two cuts that
'Leolo' suffered was of a couple of obviously under-age children stroking a woman's breasts.
'Leolo' is an ideal case study concerning what is or isn't permissible - having seen both the uncut and cut versions,
I'm amazed by what they left in! Bizarrely, shots of an obviously underage boy stuffing raw liver down the front of his trousers, lying face down on the floor and squelching up and down on top of it *doesn't* contravene the Protection of Children Act,
but a far more innocent shot such as the one I described above does!
Léolo is a rare work of pure poetic
genius in film. It is a French-Canadian film that reminds me not only of the power of great cinema, but of the unlimited potential of the human imagination, and what it means to experience real love.
Equally enchanting and
depressing, Jean-Claude Lauzon's Léolo tells the story of Léo Lauzon (Maxime Collin), a 12-year-old Montreal boy who is more comfortable living in his wild imagination than in the reality of his dysfunctional life. (He provides the voice-over narration
for the film, from the perspective of an old man.) During the film one wonders, is this endearing boy slipping into schizophrenia (as mental illness afflicts his family), or does he simply prefer a life of dreams to a life obsessed with bowel movements.
In confronting themes of adolescent sexuality, mental illness, and physical and emotional abuse (all of which are a part of Léolo's life), the film contains several truly disturbing scenes (none of which seem gratuitous in
the context of the film). One such scene involves the depiction of a tortured cat (sure to offend many viewers). (The scene is used to address parental concerns about their children's behaviour: which is worse, teenage smoking or acts of violence?) The
soundtrack includes Tom Waits and the Rolling Stones. Not surprisingly, Time Magazine named this poignant, one-of-a-kind film one of the 100 best movies of all time. It is one of my 10 favorite films. It is a film that will haunt you.
Léon is a 1994 France crime thriller by Luc Besson. With Jean Reno, Gary Oldman and Natalie Portman.
There exists a Director's Cut and a Theatrical Version
A professional assassin rescues a young girl whose parents were killed in a police raid.
T he international edition is much better. Both versions carry a slight sexual
tension throughout between Leon and Matilda, and the uncut version is more pronounced in this area, but that isn't the reason to buy it.
The extra 24 minutes on the uncut version provides a deeper understanding of the relationship between the two
as the film progresses. For example, in the US version Matilda never becomes a real "cleaner" or hitman. It's only hinted at when they shoot a jogger from a rooftop with blanks. In the uncut version, Leon takes her completely under his wing and
teaches her the trade, including scenes where the pair run around killing bad guys and such. In the process, Leon teaches her the "ring trick" by tossing a grenade at a victim and keeping the ring and grenade pin in his hand. This scene sets up
the final scenes in the movie in a way that the US version left short and unexplained.

2018 Scorpion [International + US Versions] (RA) Blu-ray at US Amazon
The cinema version was cut when submitted in 2004 with the following BBFC justification: Cut required to scene in which young boy holds apparently erect penis.
a critically well received French drama about a pair of juvenile runaways, was considered in relation to the terms of the Protection of Children Act. The film was a sensitive study of two children, one with learning disabilities, struggling on the
margins of society. The film focused on their relationship, not just with the wider world, but also with each other. Several scenes suggested that the children were beginning to become sexually aware and sexually attracted to each other. The parts were
played by a boy and a girl who were both under 16 at the time of filming and a few scenes involved a certain amount of nudity. The Board took legal advice about these scenes and also consulted a psychiatrist and a clinical psychologist about the
psychological impact that taking part in the scenes may have had on the young persons involved. As a consequence, most of the scenes were allowed to pass but a cut was required to a scene which implied that the boy had become sexually aroused while
splashing around in water with the girl. Although it was almost impossible to register at normal speed, on freeze frame it was possible to see that the boy's penis was apparently erect. In order to comply with the Protection of Children Act, the
potentially indecent images showing his arousal were removed.
No DVD or video version has yet been certified
Thanks to Daniel, May 2008: Nothing Explicit
I remember the film because it was actually shown on BBC4 before it was
shown theatrically in the UK, and the scene of the two underage actors splashing around in the bath prior to some apparently off screen sexual contact was intact. I remember at the time being startled by what the scene suggested, but I didn't see any
sign of the explicit detail that prompted the BBFC to cut it.
The rough cut was screened to the band in July

An insider revealed what we'll never get to see: There was much more stuff of John and Yoko, and the other three didn't really think that was appropriate because they wanted to make it a 'nicer' movie. They didn't want to
have a lot of the dirty laundry, so a lot of it was cut down.
After watching the edited version, Lennon said he felt that the camera work was set up to show Paul and not to show anybody else and that the people that cut it, cut it
as 'Paul is God and we're just lyin' around...
There are bootleg tapes that exist of some footage not used in the final release, including a moment where Peter Sellers visits the band.

The fight scene towards the beginning of the film
where Jet Li kills an accomplice is missing Jet Li breaking the guy's hand and then stamping on his foot after which he grabs the guy by the face and knees him.
In the same scene we don't get to see the wire being strapped tightly
around the guy's throat.
In the major fight scene in Murtagh's house between Jet Li's thugs, Gibson, Russo and Glover there are many many small cuts to remove scenes of contact. This includes punches, kicks and the knife scenes. A pregnant Russo
beating a thug is trimmed as is Jet Li kicking Russo in the head as she enters the door.
Towards the end, when the Chinese family is brought to the forgery workshop, and the old character goes to his his uncle, we don't get to see the guy's neck
being snapped. The implication still remains though.
During the car chase on the freeway the death of the Chinese man is cut. On The US DVD you see an obviously fake floppy dummy hit by the bus, but the UK DVD cuts before the impact
sight of two men in a car just about to be hit by a train was deleted
A warehouse fight is missing the sight of a man shot in the head and a man having is back broken in a scissor hold.
The final scene is considerably cut in the same
way, including Gibsons repeated Headbutt to Jet Li. Also as in Goldeneye the sound volume is reduced to make the fight impacts less severe.

1971 cinema release
MGM had acquired the United Kingdom release rights in the movie and were intent on releasing it in Britain as their major Christmas film for all the family.
Unfortunately the BBFC
would only grant the film an X certificate, barring all under sixteen years of age from seeing it. What MGM had perceived as a jolly action romp was deemed by the UK censors to be an excessively violent film suitable only for adults.
In tandem with the censors MGM made extensive cuts, but still the censors would only grant an A certificate, meaning that children could only be admitted to see the film if accompanied by an adult.
Virtually all of the graphic violence in the original film was excised and the British release of the movie was not a success.
After Nicholas Ray died, Wenders was too depressed to help
edit the film, so he left it to his friend Peter Przygodda. Przygodda spent a year working on it and this was the 116-minute version shown at the Cannes Film Festival. Wenders however, was disturbed by this version and found it depressing and obscure. He
spent three months with Chris Sievernich re-editing the film. Aside from cutting more than 25 minutes, he added more footage of Susan as well as his narration of Ray's diary. This is the 91-minute definitive version of the movie.
Like Water for Chocolate is a 1992 Mexico romance by Alfonso Arau. Starring Marco Leonardi, Lumi Cavazos and Regina Torné.
No censor cuts but the film premiered in a long version and then was shortened for
general release. The US Version was even shorter.
This movie is about how life used to be in Mexico. It is a love story between Pedro and Tita, and why they coudn't get married because Tita's mother
wanted her oldest daughter to get married first, and have Tita to stay and take care of her. It shows how marriage was imposed on those times, and how a love between two people can change everything. This picture set a new epoch in Mexican movies all
over the world.
International: The original version seen on the film festival circuit was about 123 minutes, although some sources quote 144 minutes.

In a place far, far away, illegal genetic experiment #626 is detected: Ruthless scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba has created a strong, intelligent, nearly indestructible and

experiment #626 can't actually do much harm: water all around, no big cities and two well-equipped representatives of the Galactic Federation already following close behind to catch him again. But Dr. Jookiba and the Earth expert Pleakley never could
have guessed that earth girl Lilo adopts the experiment as dog, gives him ...
Distributor chose to remove sight of dangerous activity which might be copied by young children (child character emerging from a hiding place inside a washing machine or tumble drier) in
order to achieve a U. A 12 uncut was available to the distributor.
The producers reworked the cartoon so that the dryer was converted to a wooden cupboard.
The movie was intended to be an R, and then it was cut down to be PG-13, which is fine. I really liked the PG-13 version, but I love the R version. It's much crazier, wilder, more extreme. There's just some insane things in there, that aren't in the
PG-13 version. It's much racier, also.

This erotic vampire film features a young man on a strange quest after recognizing a castle on a poster. He seems to remember the castle from his childhood and eventually finds it with
the aid of a strange woman dressed in white. It turns out that his family has been keeping the secret of vampirism from him.
This stylish vampire epic is one of Rollin's best. We have the usual Rollin ingredients on hand,
nocturnal settings, catacombs, coffins and semi nude vampires lurking the night. Unlike Franco who would delve further into the salacious aspects, Rollin tends to blend his lustful elements into his crafty settings giving the viewer a very unique
contrast. This film is a must see for any eclectic Rollin fan.

Love Brides of the Blood Mummy
Lips Of Blood is a 1973 Spain / France horror by Alejandro Martí (as Ken Ruder) Starring George Rigaud,Michael Flynn,Catherine Franck
Cut by the BBFC for X rated cinema release in 1973.
A revived mummy needs the blood of young women to slake his thirst.
A dubbed English
language version must have existed at some point, possibly with more nudity in it. The Spanish language version that is around these days does bear all the traces of being a clothed version of the film, prepared for the censorious climate of 1970s Spain.
Meaning the Mummy might get away with rape, flagellation and branding women in this version, but he remains gentlemanly enough to only strip them down to their bloomers while doing so. Of course if you have a thing for hysterical women wearing bloomers,
that not even Mrs Slocombe's antics in Are You Being Served can satisfy, this is the version for you. For everyone else...well as no other version of this film has ever re-surfaced...its bloomers for the rest of us as well!!!
Lisa and the Devil is a1974 Italy/West Germany/Spain horror by Mario Bava and Alfredo Leone. With Telly Savalas, Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina.
The Original Version is Lisa and the Devil. Later the film was
significantly re-edited into The House of Exorcism which was cut by the BBFC for cinema release. Uncut on UK home video and uncut in the US.
Summary Review: Lisa and the Devil vs The House of Exorcism
Lisa (Elke Sommer) is a foreigner in a tourist group. While admiring a fresco of the devil (which looks amazingly like Telly Savalas), she hears music and is drawn to it, abandoning the tourist group in the process. This leads her
to a man (Telly Savalas) carrying a life-sized dummy. Lisa recognizes him as the devil from the painting and from this moment on the viewer is taken for a nightmarish journey that's hard to tell which is actually real or a hallucination. Not that the end
result is a mess, far from it; it is remarkable how Bava holds such a non-linear plot together so well where other filmmakers before and since failed and it's easy to see why this is Bava's favourite film. The cast ensemble is excellent and so is the
direction. It's definitely one of his best.
Unfortunately Leone couldn't find a distributor for this film. Seeing the success of The Exorcist, Leone had Bava reshoot some scenes that had Lisa possessed (spouting
profanities, spewing pea soup, and so on). Bava balked at filming material he felt was blasphemous, so he walked and Leone finished filming the scenes, edited them into Lisa And The Devil, and called it The House Of Exorcism. The end result is really
pathetic and an insult to Mario Bava's movie.

Little Boy is a 2015 USA / Mexico war comedy drama by
Alejandro Monteverde. Starring Emily Watson, Kevin James and David Henrie.
The film was initially rated PG-13 for some mature thematic material and violence. The studio appealed to the C.A.R.A. Appeals board presumably hoping for a PG rating. Later the studio surrendered the PG-13 rating and decided to go for
an unrated theatrical release. This seems to imply that the appeal was lost.

Before he was worshipped as an auteur of video nasty violence, the notorious Ruggero Deodato, creator of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, helmed
perhaps his most potent pot-boiler: LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN. An edgy, exciting and extravagantly plotted police-thriller, this masterpiece of high-octane action opens with a road-ripping race around Rome that makes THE FRENCH CONNECTION look

Summary Review: British Mini
Watching this film was a real treat as it was devoid of the
usual American teenage students being slaughtered and was even filmed here in the U.K.
It's full of 1960's/70's kitsch and the hero's even drive a real British Mini.
picture quality is excellent so you can see the Zombies in all their lurid excellence.
If you only ever buy one Zombie movie, make it this one!
The Living Dead Girl is a 1982 France horror by Jean Rollin. With Marina Pierro, Françoise Blanchard and Mike Marshall.
Cut by the BBFC for VHS. Uncut on DVD in the UK and US
A toxic spill revives a beautiful, dead heiress who, with the help of her childhood friend, must quench her insatiable thirst for blood.
If you like your euro-horror a little
sexier, a lot gorier, and even quite humorous, you cannot go wrong here. From the opening scene with the grave robbers being disfigured by toxic vapors (hilariously fake) to later ultra-gory scenes as our tragic zombie-female-vamp dispatches one victim
after another with her long sharp fingernails or devours their necks in extra-long munching scenes, this one delivers the goods!
It has a very euro-horror feel to it and is not as esoteric and heady as some of the other Rollin films.
Cuts to a shot of a woman with a knife in her throat spurting blood onto her killer
Catherine sticking her finger into a victim's neck has been shortened. With further cuts as Catherine digs into the victim's guts.
Cut s to a slow
and relentless disembowelling as a woman victim is fed to a female vampire.
A scene of Helene slashing a woman's stomach has been deleted
A shot of Catherine eating from Helene's neck has been significantly shortened. As has Catherine
continuing slow and relentless disembowelling of her victim. Catherine's dessert of a nice tasty thumb has also been cut.

Summary Review: Very Weird
Howard, a shy morgue worker, falls in love with a girl who ends up in the morgue, but he
doesn't let that stop him.
Don't expect some type of slasher flick, but what you can expect is a sick twisted love story of a man in love and living with a corpse as it rots, he imagines the corpse talking to him as he cooks for
it buys it clothes sleeps with it (not sexually , he does make out with it one time).
Overall the plot is good but at several points does drag and get boring but it still remains very weird.

Summary Review: Psychedelic
A young woman is accused of murdering her debauched neighbor after dreaming it. Was she set up, or did she
really do it?
Visually this movie is stunning. Lots of superbly thought out hallucination scenes show the main character's decent into possible madness with really quite jarring effect. Yes there's the naked beauties and 60's
soundtrack, but neither of these feel like they've been shoehorned in for the sake of it. In fact the psychedelic party at the start of the film only adds to the uneasiness of everything.
The script has more twists and
turns than a basket full of snakes. You're left wondering what's going to happen right up to the very end of this film.
Forget about movie genres and pigeon holes, this film is quite simply just a cracking ride from start
