UK: The UK Theatrical Version was passed 12 after BBFC suggested category cuts were implemented for:
  • UK 2006 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

  • The BBFC advised the company that sound levels during some acts of violence may be too impactful for 12A and that the film was likely to receive a 15 classification. The final score and sound effects on the completed film included differences in sound levels which reduced the strength of some acts of violence to an extent which made the film acceptable at 12A.

Thanks to Gavin Salkeld. None of the musical score was changed or reduced in any way. As for the cuts:

  • Silas breaking the thieves' necks has had the sound effects reduced in volume. In the theatrical cut, the second neck break happens off-screen, but you see both in the extended cut.
  • The impact of Silas striking the nun with the slab was reduced in volume
  • The impact sounds of Fache kicking the air traffic controller were reduced in volume

Daddy Darling DVD Region NTSC

 

 
Daddy, Darling is a 1970 Denmark/USA drama by Joseph W Sarno.
With Helli Louise, Gio Petré and Ole Wisborg. BBFC link IMDb
Banned by the BBFC for 1970 cinema release. Uncut for 1973 cinema release

Summary Review: Intelligent erotica

A young Danish girl (Helli Louise) seduces everything in sight after daddy refuses her naughty come-ons. She'll have a lesbian affair with her teacher, pretend that her teenage boyfriend is dear old dad and finally get to her stepmother

The taboo of incest is explored/exploited by Joe Sarno in this flick, but it's the daughter lusting after Dad and not the other way around.

For a film made in 1969, it's notoriety lies in its stretching the limits and possibilities of soft-core erotica, just before the advent of hardcore movies. It helps that the actresses are attractive, the nudity abundant, and the exploitation envelope pushed. All in all, a good example of reasonably intelligent erotica from a lost era, well-handled and well-executed.

The BBFC commented:

During post-production, the UK distributor sought and was given advice about classification. After receiving that advice the company chose to make a change to the film for release in the UK and as a result the UK cinema version may differ from the US cinema version. The change consists of the removal of a sequence in which a child drinks bubble mixture and then blows bubbles from his mouth. The only formal submission to the BBFC for classification was of the UK cinema version and this was passed PG without cuts.

Daddy's Home

In an interview with Collider, the filmmakers said that the MPAA weren't too happy about some sexual dialogue scene and the way it was delivered so they had to change it in order to avoid an R rating. The filmmakers added that it is unlikely that the cut material will ever be released.

From IMDb. The Directors Cut is very different (and improved). There are many narrative changes but those changes that may be censorship related are:

  • There are more scenes involving The Kingpin at his most vicious, at point killing two of his own bodyguards by breaking their necks.
  • The fight scene in the playground with Matt and Elektra is longer.
  • The scene in the bar where Daredevil takes out the bikers is longer and more violent.
  • An exchange during the Natchios' party where Foggy and Wesley have a verbal exchange, that ends by Foggy saying What a dick.
  • The scene where Matt returns from his battle in the opening of the film, he is seen in his apartment pouring Epsom salt into the water of his coffin and as he is about to lay down he starts to hear noises and sounds from the outside world as far as seeing a woman crawling on the floor and ends by him laying down inside the coffin and the top sealing.
  • The scene where Bullseye demands his own costume is restored to I want a fucking costume as opposed to the theatrical version where he says I want a bloody costume
  • The fight between Elektra and Bullseye is longer and ends with Bullseye giving her a kiss before he throws her onto the roof of the adjacent building.
  • The final confrontation between Daredevil and The Kingpin is longer and more brutal.

During post-production, the UK distributor sought and was given advice about classification. After receiving that advice the company chose to make changes to the film for release in the UK. The changes occur in two scenes:

  • in the fight between Elektra and Bullseye the UK version lacks all sight of a dagger sticking through Elektra's hand and all sight of her removing the dagger from her hand
  • in the fight between Daredevil and Kingpin the UK version lacks a headbutt and has the sound of breaking bones partially obscured by a crack of thunder.

Darkman Collectors Blu ray Liam Neeson October

With Liam Neeson, Frances McDormand and Colin Friels. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for a 15 rated 1990 cinema release. Then less cut for 18 rated VHS and DVD. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US.

Summary Review : Entertaining

Sam Raimi directed this entertaining action yarn hot on the heels of 1989's hit Batman. Liam Neeson (before he hit it big) stars as scientist Peyton Westlake, who has developed a synthetic skin, only problem is, it can only hold for 99 minutes before it deteriorates. When his lab is destroyed by Robert Durant (Larry Drake), Peyton is blasted into a nearby harbor. He is left horribly scarred, but when he recovers he uses the synthetic skin to get his revenge on his would be murderers while trying to get back with his girlfriend (Frances McDormand).

Darkman is really entertaining and is a great twist on superhero movies, Neeson shines as the tortured soul hero, while McDormand is great as his girlfriend. Recommended to those looking for a comic style movie with a twist.

Summary Notes

There's something in this house... Something ancient and dark that remains still, hidden and silent. It can only wait, having been concealed in the shadows for years. In fact, its milieu is darkness. Only in it can it show itself and move. It even takes its name: DARKNESS. It's lived here since someone tried to call it, more than forty years ago. Because this house hides a secret, a terrible past, an inconceivably evil act... Seven children, faceless people, a circle that must be completed. And blood, lots of blood...

Diana seems to have happily combined success and love. However, in those roaring sixties, others are ready to offer her even more money, fame, and, seemingly, fun than Robert can...

Review from US Amazon : Underrated gem

There's nothing like a bunch of gals trooping around in revealing outfits, or no outfits at all, to perk up the dreary old Stoker legend. And if you can make the head vampire a woman, that certainly can't hurt either. Welcome to Daughters of Darkness.

You just gotta love this film. Daughters of Darkness is one of the best vampire films I have ever seen for a multitude of reasons. The primary reason the picture succeeds is due to the amazing talents of Delphine Seyrig. Who is this enchanting woman and where has she been all my life? I love this lady! She manages to make her character insanely gorgeous and metaphysically eerie at the same time. She slinks around in shimmering outfits dropping suggestive comments, tells horribly gory stories, winks, and grins with the greatest of ease. And her fate at the end of the film is gruesome and disturbing. Just as good as Seyrig is the oppressive atmosphere of the hotel and the desolate surroundings.

Daughters of Darkness deserves five stars for its amazing performances and over the top antics.

Run, don't walk, to pick up a copy of this underrated gem.

The BBFC commented:

Distributor chose to make cuts to remove:

  • a scene of bloody self-harming (a man cutting his arm with a knife)

in order to obtain a 12A rating. An uncut 15 classification was available.

See article from in.omg.yahoo.com :

Director Bejoy Nambiar has decided to remove Lucky Ali's song Ya Hussain from his new film David after some groups objected to it.

A section of the Muslim community had urged Nambiar to remove the song as they felt it does not befit their definition of propriety. The song accompanied a sequence in the film, which showed a Moharram procession. Nambiar explained:

They (Muslim groups) objected to the song. But they were kind enough to accept my invitation to discuss the matter. After a lengthy discussion, it was decided that it would be better if I didn't hurt anyone's sentiments. So I've decided to remove the song.

Summary Review: Great sense of humour

This remake has been handled exceptionally well.

Looking at other recent remakes ( Texas Chainsaw Massacre , The Ring etc.) you're perfectly entitled to feel a little bit cautious as to whether this film is going to be much cop....I know I was! Especially given that the original is one of my favourite films.

Don't worry though. It's a great film! The feeling of dread may be missing but it's replaced by tons of adrenaline-fueled terror (Thanks to the change in Zombies' speed) and the special effects and gore are second to none. What this film also has is a great sense of humour.....which is just what's needed at certain points!

Overall, this remake is not better or worse than the original, it's different. It runs at a much different pace, emphasises have changed and it's far more about fun and thrills than doom and despair.

Thanks to David. I can honestly say that after watching this film UNRATED it really sticks in your mind. You learn loads more more about the characters with this extra dialogue in terms of character development and the film is becomes like the original 1978 horror classic with all that nice gore included.

The R rated version suffers cuts as follows:

  • When Ana arrives at the Bus Transport and sees the two zombies tearing someone apart in the back of the bus, there is a shot of a nude woman (bare breasted) looking dazed and confused. Very disturbing scene and I can see why the MPAA insisted on its being removed! In the Region 1 DVD - the woman's breasts have been obscured by digitally adding extra blood to the windscreen that the camera is viewing through. This extra blood is not added in the UK Region 2 version.

  • Right after ANA and KEN meet up, they walk past a playground right before entering the small tunnel. As they arrive at the back entrance of the mall, everyone gets a surprise as this crazy looking dude comes running. He also brings some nice friends...While in the store, they see the toilet sitting there, which ends up going through the window.

  • When MICHAEL shoots the mallet up through the zombie's neck into his head, extra brain matter was removed in the theatrical cut.

  • Two dip shits discussing the zombie outbreak while CJ watches in anger.

  • We actually get to see CJ waste the zombie janitor in the sports store.

  • Right after the "Down With The Sickness" montage, instead of cutting to the sniper shot of Jay Leno, CJ is reading a women's top 3 list to BART who is asleep. #1 in his list is trust. GLEN tells the uncomfortable BART and CJ the first time he knew he was gay...lol

  • A quick shot of NORMA grabbing that hotties cigarette right as ANDRE leaves for LIDA.

  • The actual gunshots which hit Norma as her and Andre battle it out.

  • A more realistic shot of the zombie baby right before getting done in.

  • Michael and Anna make out in the shuttle bus before the "food-Andy meeting"

  • A lot more zombies during their run for the gun shop. More Zombies, and more headshots.

  • Awesome shot of a zombie's half-face after getting a shotgun blast by KEN.

  • THE MISSING GUN SHOP EXIT: CJ runs to the roof with a propane tank and chucks it over. He's aiming with Andy's sniper rifle. Aim...Ready...Fire!!! How will we know if he shoots it? CJ exits the gunshop last, leaving right up to his exit from the truck and back onto the street. (Where the theatrical cut left you). CJ gets another zombie right before blowing up another propane tank.

  • More gore is involved in the scene when the blonde babe gets sawn in half by Glen. Blood splatters on KEN's face blinding him, causing the turn-over.

  • We get to see Michael actually place the gun up to his throat and Bang- suicide!

A long history of BBFC cuts to Dawn of the Dead from 1978 - 1997. The cuts were waived in 2003 but there are still multiple versions to add to the complexity.

Summary Review: Consumerism and materialism

Although you will find this film under the Horror section of your video shop, I view Romero's zombie films as terrific action films. The rules are simple (don't get bit and shoot them in the head), the prey is stiff and slow and the shopping mall setting is the ultimate playground.

However, where the film separates itself from every other action film and horror film out there is its clever subtext that reflects society at the time the film was made. In 1978, consumerism and materialism had started to rear its ugly head. I think Total Film magazine said it best when it said that the ...survivors have everything they want in the shoppers paradise, but nothing they need, such as freedom and liberty.

See  article from  sbbfc.co.uk:

The film was seen by six Examiners and the then Director of the BBFC, James Ferman.

The Examiners unanimously disliked the film, whilst at the same time acknowledged that Romero had displayed some technical flair in creating pace and atmosphere. Much discussion was given over to the moral framework of the film – were the zombies sentient beings or unfeeling objects; was the violence mitigated by the fact that the zombies are no longer human beings; was the audience being invited to indulge in the killings because the zombies ostensibly felt nothing?

One thing that all the Examiners and James Ferman agreed on was that the 125 minute submitted version would have be cut before being released to the general public. Ferman stated that the film featured violence perpetrated against people which was to a degree never before passed by the Board and subsequently issued a cuts list that amounted to approximately 55 separate cuts (2 minutes 17 seconds).

The following month a cut version of the film was re-submitted for re-examination and this time another team of Examiners viewed the film. All of the Examiners still disliked the film and some were convinced that cutting was not the solution to alleviating the possible desensitising effect that the film might have on vulnerable audiences. Despite this view, the suggestion of further extensive cuts was made and the film was once again seen by Ferman who subsequently issued a further 1 minute 29 seconds of cuts to more scenes of gory detail.

In September 1979 Ferman wrote to the distributor exclaiming that a tour de force of virtuoso editing has transformed this potential reject from a disgusting and desensitising wallow in the ghoulish details of violence and horror to a strong, but more conventional action piece…The cutting is not only skilful, but creative, and I think it has actually improved a number of the sequences by making the audience notice the emotions of the characters and the horror of the situation instead of being deadened by blood and gore .

Summary Review: Crummy Acting

Too much crummy acting in this one, and not enough quality make-up effects makes this hard to recommend.

This way-low-budget flick doesn't really have set-piece effects where you see the ripping and tearing, so it flops as a gore shocker.

Summary review: Classic

George A Romero's zombie films are probably the most famous of all the zombie flics and are for good reasons. And this a must-see entry in the series

Day of the dead is the third in Georges line-up and is a masterpiece and has some of the best blood/gore special effects I have ever seen on a film before! The infamous scene where a man is ripped in two looks almost what you would expect to be real!

Don't be expecting any award winning acting though, as this doesn't have it. There is lots of annoying shouting and swearing in this too, which does get on your nerves, but that makes it all the better when you see the annoying soldiers get eaten alive!

X cert

94:21s UK: Passed PG for: UK: Passed X (16) after compulsory BBFC cuts for:
  • 1961 cinema release
From IMDb.

Although listed as cut by the BBFC, the then censor John Trevelyan passed the film uncut according to his memoirs. The X certificate was given due to the subject matter, and occasional tough language, being unsuitable for anyone under the age of 16.

At about 45:20 into the movie the actress portraying Jeannie Craig (Janet Munro) steps from the shower and wraps herself in a towel. The image in the mirror at the right of the screen reflects her nude breasts. There has been speculation that this topless glimpse was censored from the US Version

The cuts status is vague as regards to the above variations.

  • Additionally to that, there are many trims of existing scenes and excised lines.

The BBFC further explained their 18 rating:

A cut version of the film was previously classified 15 for cinema release but this version of the film is uncut and has therefore been passed 18 for scenes of strong, gory and bloody violence.

The film contains several scenes where vampires are killed in extremely gory fashion, with copious bloodshed and including images of severed limbs and decapitations. The Guidelines at 15 state that violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury and that the strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable . The scenes at the film's climax in particular show both vampires and humans being torn apart, with large quantities of blood and sight of flesh being ripped and torn. Daybreakers also includes some strong language and a brief scene of female nudity.

15 Certificate 93:36s UK: Passed 15 for strong, gory and bloody violence after 6s of BBFC category cuts for:

  • 2010 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

Company made three cuts to remove shots focussing on very strong gory violence, in order to achieve a 15 classification. Cuts made in line with BBFC Guidelines. An uncut 18 was available.

The BBFC further explained the15 rating:

The film contains several scenes where vampires are killed in extremely gory fashion, with copious bloodshed and including images of severed limbs and decapitations. The guidelines at 15 state that violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury and that the strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable . Many of the violent scenes in the film show the blood as almost black and this lessens the impact of the bloodshed and allows these scenes to be contained at 15 . The scenes at the film's climax, in particular, show both vampires and humans being torn apart but these shots are all in the distance and very rapidly edited with much of the stronger detail carefully masked. Daybreakers also includes some strong language and a brief scene of female nudity

The BBFC category cuts were:

  • Remove medium shot of Frankie with torn up chest and streaming blood as vampire soldiers feed on him.
  • Remove close shot of Frankie with shredded chest and neck as vampire soldiers continue feeding.
  • Remove close shot as blood gushed from neck wound. Resume on vampire soldiers eating flesh.
