Jack Frost Revenge Mutant Snowman

Jack Frost 2: Revenge of the Mutant Killer Snowman is a 2000 USA comedy horror fantasy by Michael Cooney.
With Christopher Allport, Eileen Seeley and Chip Heller. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Summary Notes

In this sequel of the first Jack Frost movie, Sheriff Sam Tiler, his wife Anne, and Sam's two deputies (also husband and wife) decide to go on a Caribbean vacation to take their minds off the traumatic events of the previous movie in a place with absolutely no snow. Their holiday will be short-lived, however, as the thawed murderer gets inadvertantly re-frozen and brought back to life. As if that weren't bad enough, he now has the ability to remain frozen even in tropical temperatures, and he's headed south to settle some old scores.

This movie was never intended to be a horror/scary movie. The filmmakers CLEARLY meant for it to be a campy, funny film, with a lot of humorous deaths along the way. If you watch it with that in mind - NOT expecting anything truly scary - but just a disposable, kill-90-minutes-on-a-Saturday-afternoon movie.

The production values are nil, and the acting and script are unquestionably sub-par, but on that one certain level - that very specific level I mentioned previously - this movie actually has some funny scenes.

TV Version

15 cert 93:00s There were no BBFC cuts to the 2000 High Fliers DVD but this was a pre-cut TV version.

From IMDb . The major differences between the uncut US DVD and the UK version are:

  • The deadly snowball fight is more gruesome. Tons of Blood splatters out from a man's arm onto a woman right after it's ripped off by the snowball. Also, there are shots of people getting gutted and killed by flying icicles and snow balls, with lots of blood everywhere. The VHS version cuts out before anybody is hit by the icicles or dies.
  • There is nudity in the scene where the woman jumps into the pool naked.
  • More gore in the scene where the three girls are killed by the beachside when Jack first comes onto the island.
  • Profanity is in in this version (barely any in the VHS).
  • More gore to practically every other murder in the movie. The DVD version also has a higher body count because the VHS cuts a lot of deaths out.

The BBFC commented:

Company chose to reduce two moments of violence:

  • a woman being suffocated by a man and

  • a man being hit over the head with a rock

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

BBFC Comment from BBFC Annual Report 2013 [pdf]

The 12A theatrical classification of Jack Reacher generated the most feedback in 2013, with a total of 26 complaints. Despite a number of reductions made to scenes of violence to achieve a 12A certificate, those who contacted us considered the film too violent, dark and sadistic for twelve-year-olds, and inappropriately presented the hero as a vigilante figure.

The film is occasionally gritty and realistic, but the overall tone and treatment of the violence is similar to recent 12A action films such as the Bourne series and does not exceed the Guidelines at 12A. The film is relatively restrained in showing injury or blood, with no undue focus on the suffering of the victims and the Jack Reacher character is quickly established as an 'anti-hero'.

86-year-old Irving Zisman takes a trip from Nebraska to North Carolina to take his 8 year-old grandson, Billy, back to his real father.

Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places, and situations that give new meaning to the term "childrearing". The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons, and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.

Summary Review: Yvette Is A Dish!

OK, so this movie is a typical Roger Corman production with the usual Roger Corman production values. That makes it, of course, a really worthwhile film. Corman may have made some weirdos, but all of his movies are fun.

Tommy Lee Jones was perfectly cast in Jackson County Jail. Yvette Mimieux is as sexy as she has ever been. And, her performance is Grade A.

This movie has a large cult following for various reasons. And, even though it's not the best of it's genre, it is a film worth the price.

The BBFC explained further in their 2006 Annual Report:

Alan Bleasdale's drama featured the depiction of a young boy hanging himself on a washing line. The process of hanging was shown in some detail, including some rather novel techniques, and the boy hanged for some time before being rescued, apparently unhurt. The scene as a whole was considered potentially harmful and compulsory cuts were made to the detailed shots showing the boy wrapping the washing line around his neck.

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday is a 1993 US slasher by Adam Marcus.
With John D. LeMay, Kari Keegan and Kane Hodder. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

There is a cut MPAA R rated Version and an uncut Unrated Version

Summary Review : Change of Direction

The secret of Jason's evil is revealed. It is up to the last remaining descendant of the Voorhees family to stop Jason before he becomes immortal and unstoppable.

A completely different direction for the series. Jason, himself, appears for about ten or fifteen minutes throughout, leaving the remaining time to focus on the mythology that surrounds him.

While it is a refreshing change to see Friday the 13th take a different step, it all seems a bit too much like a Halloween rip off. Friday the 13th is a franchise with strict rules and while it's always a pleasure to bend rules slightly, when you break them into smithereens you are usually left with a mess. This is what Jason Goes to Hell is like.

Part 9 isn't great but if you are a fan of the genre you'll watch it anyway.

Heavily cut for a US R rating. The same version was passed 18 and later 15 without further BBFC cuts

Summary Review:  strong visual style

Tommy goes to a graveyard to get rid of Jason's body, but he accidentally brings him back to life. Jason wants revenge! Tommy must defeat Jason once and for all!

While writer/director Tom McLoughlin's script is witty and self-deprecating in tone, and some of the jokes are pretty good, it is nonetheless more of the same. However McLoughlin does give this series entry a strong visual style - something almost all the others lack - Jason standing atop a crashed motor home being a good example. This is one well worth seeing, both for fans and non-fans alike. Recommended.

US: cut for an MPAA R Rating for:

Thanks to Simon. From IMDb. The following scenes were cut to avoid an MPAA "X" rating:
  • Allen's insides were ripped out of his body by Jason. He dragged the guts and heart out; he dropped them on the ground where his heart lay steaming.
  • The triple decapitation of the three paintball players. The first print showed their bodies and heads dropping to the ground.
  • The two camp counsellors in the car's deaths were also trimmed: The part where the woman is speared in the water originally showed a close-up shot of blood coming to the surface of the water with the air bubbles. The man was speared, lifted into the air, and then slid down the spear, leaving his insides on it.
  • Jason shoved the broken bottle into the caretaker's neck and he falls to the ground as the camera gets a close-up of the blood coming out of the bottle.
  • Cort's death originally was not as quick-cut and you could actually see the knife going into his head before he falls over.
  • The wall-to-wall blood cabin originally had a lot more blood and guts in it. There were shots of livers and hearts running down the walls, but it was all thought too graphic to have in the film.
  • The backbreaking sheriff's scene had more to it. There were more screams, more bone crushing, and his legs began to kick.
  • A scene at the very end was cut. In it, a red-haired Elias Voorhees walked to his son's grave. Knowing he wasn't in the casket, Elias gives the camera a wicked glare.
  • Sissy's death was toned down. Originally, you could see her head torn off and dropped.

Director Tom McLoughlin said in an interview from dreadcentral.com  

I'm hoping someone will come across a film vault one day and see a reel for some movie like Flashdance, put it in, and realize it's all Jason kill footage. I found a VHS tape years later containing footage I know was cut from the movie. The MPAA fucked my film, as they did most of the Friday movies. We sent our film back to the MPAA 9 times before they finally approved it. Paramount just wanted to get it out and said to keep trimming to avoid an X rating.

Summary Review: Outlandish

Jason Voorhees returns with a new look, a new machete, and his same murderous attitude as he is awakened on a spaceship in the 25th century.

Despite the massive shift in setting the films seems to have been well received by those that have enjoyed the more tongue in cheek style of the latter Friday the 13th films.

A reasonably high budget and decent characters amongst Jason's victims seem to have helped.

Summary Notes

Several years after Amity's former Police Chief Martin Brody electrocuted the shark at Cable Junction, his sons, Mike & Sean, are now working in different roles at Sea World Orlando. Sea World is about to open a massive 'Undersea Kingdom' which will bring visitors closer to marine life than ever before. The park is accessible from the ocean by a series of gates, one of which malfunctions. A young Great White Shark swims through the gate, and when a maintenance diver heads down to fix the gate he does not return. The young Great White is captured & placed in a tank but soon dies despite Kathryn's best efforts to save it. More alarming though, is the young shark's massive, 35 foot mother which has followed the baby shark into the lagoon and killed the maintenance diver, whose body is recovered. ...

Summary Review:  Twisted Love Story

The petite waitress Johnny works and lives in a truck-stop, where she's lonely and longs for love. She develops a crush on the garbage truck driver Krassky, although her sleazy boss Boris warns her that he's gay. Maybe because of her boyish looks, Krassky likes her too. Both don't notice the growing jealousy of Krassky's boyfriend Padovan - until an escalation.

I went in with high hopes and wasn't disappointed. People familiar with Gainsbourg's body of work will know to expect to unexpected, what with his love for the surreal, bizarre and perverted.

The sex scenes are genuinely uncomfortable, but the two stunningly beautiful leads are perfect for this twisted love story.

When Queen Elizabeth I asks her court alchemist to show her England in the future, she's transported 400 years to a post-apocalyptic wasteland of roving girl gangs, an all-powerful media mogul, fascistic police, scattered filth, and twisted sex. With Jubilee , legendary British filmmaker Derek Jarman channeled political dissent and artistic daring into a revolutionary blend of history and fantasy, musical and cinematic experimentation, satire and anger, fashion and philosophy. With its uninhibited punk petulance and sloganeering, Jubilee , brings together many cultural and musical icons of the time, including Jordan, Toyah Willcox, Little Nell, Wayne County, Adam Ant, and Brian Eno (with his first original film score), to create a genuinely unique, unforgettable vision. Ahead of its time and often frighteningly accurate in its predictions, it is a fascinating historical document and a gorgeous work of film art.

Video cuts were made as the BBFC felt that the star appeal of Sylvester Stallone would lead to the video being watched by teenage boys of less than 15. These video versions have been cut in four places:

  • Two headbutts have been cut from the fight between Dredd and Mean Machine
  • Dredd shooting a baddy was toned down during the same fight
  • A headbutt has also been cut from the fight between Hershey and Ilsa.

Thanks to Ben:

The bonus documentary included on the Judge Dredd DVD, called "Stallone's Law: The Making of Judge Dredd" was cut by 12 seconds to secure a 12 rating.

YouTube has both the cut and the uncut versions of the documentary uploaded, and by comparing them side-by-side, I was able to find out what was cut by the BBFC.

The cut footage lasting 12 seconds can be seen between 17:09 and 17:21 in the uncut version, showing Ilsa punching Hershey, Diane Lane talking about her headbutt, and the headbutting scene itself.

The BBFC version cuts to Joan Chen being interviewed right after Ilsa draws her hand back to punch Hershey (the punch itself isn't shown).

Just Before Dawn Blu-ray

Just Before Dawn is a 1981 USA horror thriller by Jeff Lieberman.
Starring George Kennedy, Mike Kellin and Chris Lemmon. BBFC link IMDb
Originally released in a shortened version without BBFC cuts for an X rated 1981 cinema release. This version was cut for 18 rated VHS. The cuts were waived for the US uncut version for 18 rated 2005 DVD. There also exists a longer European Version, but the Uncut US Version is generally preferred.

Summary Notes

Five campers arrive in the mountains to examine some property they have bought, but are warned by the forest ranger Roy McLean that a huge machete-wielding maniac has been terrorising the area. Ignoring the warnings, they set up camp, and start disappearing one by one. If that sounds too run-of-the-mill, there's a genuinely shocking plot twist half-way through...

12s PG cert 84:13s 2001 France/US comedy by Jean-Marie Poiré

The cinema release of 2001 and then the videos/DVDs of 2002 were all similarly cut. The BBFC commented:

Distributor chose to cut dangerous imitable behaviour (pouring bleach into bathwater, eating toxic disinfectant toilet cakes) and reduce sound of violent blows to achieve a "PG". A "12" uncut was available to the distributor.

The UK release is also edited differently  to the French version. No contentious material effected though.

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon

Review from US Amazon : A Keeper

An outstanding comedy, Just Visiting, brings to the screen the story of a medieval French prince who is about to marry an English princess when he is magically transferred to the future. Things get a bit more complicated when he falls in love with his soon-to-be bride's great-great-great-granddaughter...

Jean Reno, Christina Applegate, and the rest of the cast, have outdone themselves with their performances, which are exceptional to say the least! All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% and it really shows (the chemistry is AMAZING)! Very well written and very well presented, the movie is without a doubt guaranteed to provide more than just a few laughs.

Justice Pao, 29-32

PG 91:56s UK: Passed PG for mild bad language after BBFC category cuts for:
  • 2013 cinema release
The BBFC commented:
  • Company chose to completely obscure two uses of strong language to achieve a PG classification. An uncut 12A was available.

The BBFC added in the 2013 Annual Report:

Some efforts had been made to obscure strong language that occurs during a scene in which Bieber is besieged by reporters and angry words are exchanged. Nonetheless, although the stronger language was already partially obscured, it was still possible to make out the nature of the language being used, both because the bleeping of the words was inadequate and because the words could still be identified by the speaker's lip movements.

The distributor chose to increase the masking of the strong language by adding additional bleeping and blurring of mouth movements, in order to secure a PG classification.
