Rabbit Fever

Rabbit Fever is a 2006 UK comedy by Ian Denyer.
With Lisa Barbuscia, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Tara Summers. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Uncut by the BBFC at 18. The distributors wanted a 15 but the request was denied

Summary Notes

The Rabbit is the world's belling-selling vibrator. In the past year alone, millions have been sold all over the globe. Now experts are warning the Rabbit is becoming the new addiction; women who start using often find they simply cannot stop. RABBIT FEVER is the first film to follow the trials and tribulations of a group of Rabbit Addicts as they attempt to kick their Rabbit habit.

BBFC uncut 18 82:10s UK: Passed 18 uncut for frequent strong sex references for:

There's no sign of the video release in the BBFC database.

Uncut but as the film contains no violence, no nudity and little sex beyond that implied by the title and references to sex toys, then the distributors felt that 18 was unnecessarily restrictive. They asked the BBFC to reconsider but the BBFC declined with the following statement:

This determination was formally reconsidered by the BBFC at the request of the submitting company. The BBFC carefully considered the arguments put forward by the submitting company and looked again at the relevant submitted material, but concluded that its original determination was appropriate. The BBFC did, however, amend the consumer advice.

Rabid Dogs is a 1974 Italy crime thriller by Mario Bava and Lamberto Bava.
With Lea Lander, George Eastman and Riccardo Cucciolla. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Not cut by censors. The original version is titled Rabid Dogs. An unsuccessful rework is titled Kidnapped

From IMDb

Originally shot in 1974 under the title L'uomo e il bambino (Rabid Dogs) , this film was shelved when one of the film financial backers died. The film sat on a shelf for almost 25 years until actress Lea Lander rescued it from oblivion. A new short prologue was shot, according to Bava's original script, and editing and scoring were completed using existing available materials. In 2002 producer Alfredo Leone and director Lamberto Bava (Mario's son), allegedly dissatisfied with the DVD edit, produced a new restored version of the film called Kidnapped . Lamberto Bava and his son Roy shot additional footage and original composer Stelvio Cipriani created a new complete musical score. This new version was not well received.

Review from US Amazon : Solid action entertainment

Wow! Ring of Fire 2 takes an entirely different route than the original. The first instalment was a Romeo and Juliet type of romance set against a backdrop of a cross-culture martial arts fued. Don The Dragon Wilson was the romantic lead and left most of the fight scenes to his capable co-stars.

The sequel, on the other hand, is a non-stop action film. Don, reprising his role of Johnny, and his buddies go underground (literally!) in search of the gang leader who kidnapped his fiance (Maria Ford, reprising her role- but with a different hair color!).

The plot is totally contrived, but this is just such a likable knucklehead of a movie that it's hard not to like it. Don the Dragon gets plenty of fight scenes this time around. Wise move. Ring of Fire 2 is solid action entertainment. Just remember to leave your I.Q. at the door and you'll love it.

Summary Review:  Inventive kill sequences

A teacher still haunted by the death of two teens that she accidentally caused as a young girl goes beserk when four teens start harassing her and then attack her in her home.

The film is a departure from your run-of-the-mill 80s slasher flick but essentially follows the conventions of the genre with a few novel twists. It's a low budget offering with some inventive kill sequences but the acting and directing are somewhat uneven.

Director Gareth Evans reported on MPAA cuts via Twitter:

For folks in the US, The Raid 2 has just been rated R. And in all honesty the few cuts we made are so minimal. We are literally talking frames - and not too many of them. I'm fucking happy.

See  article from  hypable.com :

Hypable : After seeing this finished version of the film and the previous unrated cut at Sundance, I barely noticed any changes. How were you able to get through the MPAA ratings board with so few changes?

Gareth Evans: We were very lucky because the changes were minimal. We did make some changes but they're so subtle like cutting a couple of frames here and there. Also, there were some issues with Hammer Girl where she impacts to the flesh. Impacts to the flesh are okay but impacts to the flesh and dragging the body are not. I trimmed here and there and thankfully you didn't notice, which is great for me.

See review from mcbastardsmausoleum.blogspot.com :

The Director's Cut which is actually a re cut assembled by fan Peet Gelderblom, who in 2012 discovered that the movie was re-sequenced by De Palma in post-production, which dramatically changed the structure of the movie. After obtaining the original script Gelderblom set about re-sequencing it to reflect De Palma's original vision for the movie. The end result is a more fluid version of the movie which while unfortunately not incorporating any additional footage does flow much differently, the flashbacks, the dream sequences and storylines marry together much better, this is a superior version of the film, though it is not the miracle cure.

Director Brian De Palma was not involved in the creation of the Director's Cut but has watched it and approved it.

See  pictorial version details from movie-censorship.com :

The main difference between the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut is the new order of the scenes. The Director's Cut begins with Jenny and Jack who bump into each and start having an affair. This is more captivating than the Theatrical Version where Carter's story is the center of attention.

The Director's Cut is longer dues to transitions between scenes rather than new material.

All in all, the Director's Cut is the better version.

See article from bbc.co.uk :

When Rambo III was submitted to the board in the late 80s two previous Rambo films had each received the 15 certificate. But between parts two and three, the Hungerford massacre - when Michael Ryan killed 16 people with an assortment of guns - had made firearms and violence front-page news in Britain. The attitude of BBFC showed the way it responds to public opinion.

As a result of events in Hungerford, as one examiner wrote: This silly, rather enjoyable movie is likely to be a political red-hot potato. The problem was that Rambo III seemed to be almost non-stop gunfire. It's not so much what is shown, but how much and how relentlessly.

The examiners fell into an intense debate over whether to grant the film the same 15 certificate as its predecessors (albeit with cuts), or the more adult 18 reflecting the heightened sensitivities around gun use.

Public disquiet is at a height. It is naive to believe that we can always act without regard to political realities. Indeed I would go further and argue that it's irresponsible. The film was released with an 18 certificate after cuts.

The first team of examiners believed that a '15' would be required to cover the violence and theme. This decision was appealed by the distributors who felt that the film's theme was essentially a patriotic one, intended to educate and entertain young people.

The film was viewed again by a second team that included the Director and Head of Policy who agreed that the contextual and moral tone allowed for a generous interpretation of the Guidelines but that a '12A' could be offered only if cuts were made to the final shoot-out that provided more emphasis on violence and bloody impacts than is usual at that category. The film was subsequently cut for '12A',

The BBFC commented on a Twitter Q&A session in 2015:

When submitted on video in 1997 the BBFC requested a cut to a neck chop. This dangerous combat technique was considered potentially more imitable on video, where it could be replayed.

The company declined to make the cut and preferred to take an 18 uncut.

Summary Review: Gothic Imagery

After a psychoanalyst unsuccessfully tries to convince four sisters that they are not 200 year old vampires, the Queen of the Vampires promulgates the cause of the Undead.

Jean Rollin, blends with audacity and talent romantic tradition and Gothic imaginary with avant-garde contents and visual experimentation.

This is Rollin's first film and starts straight away dividing viewers between those that love, and those that hate.

Review from US Amazon : Highly recommended

No matter how many times I watch this movie, it never seems to get old. Combining elements of American action shoot 'em ups with the chop-socky combat of the Hong Kong martial arts genre, Rapid Fire seems bent on squeezing as many action sequences as possible into its brisk 90-minute running time.

However, in between fight scenes, the writers and director actually take time for little things like plot and character development, which are too often lacking in martial arts flicks (can you say Steven Seagal)? The main characters, Brandon Lee's reluctant crime fighter and Powers Boothe's grizzled cop, actually have some beliefs and internal conflicts that motivate their actions. And on top of that, there are some actors in this movie who can actually act!

In the action department, the fight scenes are extremely well done, devoid of camera tricks, multiple angles, fancy directing, or any other gimmicks that distract from the fight scenes themselves. It seems the makers of this film knew what they had in Brandon Lee and let him and the other actors carry the action on their own, a decision that definitely paid off.

Highly recommended for those who want a little brains to go with their action.

Review from US Amazon : Fantastic

I saw this film in Greece, and I'm sure that the American version is probably a little softer than the European (original cut). But I'm not too sure. This film is fantastic! I cant stress that enough. the cinematography... and just the overall satirical and witty premise of the film is worth watching. I think I'm going to make a t-shirt that says: "Masturbation is Counter-Revolutionary!" This movie is so smart...

Rasputin: The Mad Monk is a 1966 UK drama by Don Sharp.

Cut by the BBFC for 1966 cinema release. the cuts persisted to VHS. Uncut for DVD. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: Pretty Good

The movie chronicles the events of history's man of mystery, Rasputin. Although not quite historically accurate and little emphasis is put on the politics of the day, Rasputin's rise to power and eventual assassination are depicted in an attempt to explain his extraordinary power and influence.

Noted for stunning visuals on a small budget and a good score but otherwise an average Hammer horror. Entertaining enough but won't stand up to repeated viewing.

From IMDB. The BBFC cuts were:

  • the Rasputin/Sonia love scene was shortened to end on the shot of Rasputin tearing open the back of Sonia's dress. The uncut version continues the scene for another 20s climaxing as she gets into bed and Rasputin pulls the blanket off her (unseen) naked body.
  • Two shots were shortened in the scene in which Peter is disfigured by acid in order to remove close shots of Peter's scarred face.

Hammer films in 2012 are appealing for information about lost footage from:

  • an extended fight scene, saying that it was definitely filmed, but there is no known surviving materials. Film restorers have noted a burning log, that suddenly appears on the stone floor toward the end of the fight between Rasputin and Ivan (Francis Matthews),  a clear indication that there is definitely footage missing from this final fight
  • Also for footage from a scene depicting the suicide of Sonia, if it was ever filmed.
