Texas Chainsaw Massacre Leatherface DVD  

Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is a 1989 US horror film by Jeff Burr.
With Kate Hodge, Ken Foree and R.A. Mihailoff. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
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.

Legacy of Rage

Legacy Rage Dual Format Blu ray    

Legacy of Rage is a 1986 Hong Kong action film by Ronny Yu.
Starring Brandon Lee, Michael Wong and Regina Kent. Youtube link BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for an 18 rated 1993 VHS release and 2001 DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Summary Notes

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.

Summary Review:

Count Dracula journeys to a remote Chinese village in the guise of a warlord to support six vampires who are dispirited after the loss of a seventh member of their cult. At the same time, vampire hunter Prof. Van Helsing happens to be lecturing in the country and is persuaded by villagers to help them fight this curse of the ages.

The film was critically panned for a couple of decades but seems to be genuinely liked by those that take actual effort to watch it.

  • 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.

From IMDb. As well as removing nearly 20mins of exposition, this version re-structures the film's narrative in order to cram a number of action scenes (some of which are shown two or three times) into the film as early as possible. In addition to the narrative deletions you mention, the opening credits sequence now unfolds against stills of scenes of the vampires which actually occur about 15 mins into the original film, the flashback structure of the old man avenging his daughters death by killing the 7th golden vampire has been removed and this is now simply an unexplained action sequence near the beginning of the film before Van Helsing appears rather than contained within his lecture, the sequence in which the high priest meets Dracula in Translyvania has been rendered incomprehensible by the deletion of over 50% of the footage (and occurs about 10-15mins into the film rather than being the first scene), and a lot of the dialogue in the scenes in the cave (where the good-guys rest for the night) is also missing.

32s 18 106:23s 1992 Canadian film by Jean-Claude Lauzon

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!

The other cut is for cat molestation.

The uncut region 1 DVD is available at US Amazon
The uncut region 1 DVD is available via UK Amazon

Review from US Amazon : Poetic Genius

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.

Summary Notes

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.

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.

Les Diables

Link Here
  • The Devils
  • Los Diablos
12s 15 certificate   French/Spanish film by Christophe Ruggia

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.

Les Diables, 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 BBFC said that the re-edited version removed 90 seconds of personal injury and sadism. The UK distributors voluntarily cut the incidence of neck breaks, head butts, garrotting, eye gouging and the noisy breaking of bones in five of the seven reels.

  • The sounds of blows and kicks was lowered in a fight on a ship between Riggs and the captain
  • A shot was removed of a corrupt official anticipating the horror of being hit by a train
  • 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
  • The 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.

cut A cert   The cinema release of 1971 was extensively cut

From cuts details on IMDb :

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.

From version details on IMDb :

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.

Summary Review: One of Rollin's best

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.

Lisa Devil Dual Format Blu ray

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. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
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.

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.

Cut by the BBFC for X rated 1976 cinema release. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Promotional Material

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 positively lightweight in comparison! Inspired by the vigilante violence of DIRTY HARRY, Deodato s crowning crime-shocker stars the heavyweight pair of Ray Lovelock (THE LIVING DEAD AT THE MANCHESTER MORGUE) and Marc Porel (Fulci s THE PSYCHIC) as two police investigators who are not above taking the law into their own hands. Unleashed, uncut and uncensored, by 88 Films, this breathtaking babes n bullets blockbuster is an essential acquisition for Deodato-philes and lovers of classic Italian genre cinema alike!

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.

The 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!

Summary Review: very euro-horror

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.

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 to finish.
