Snuff is a 1976 Argentina/US/Canada horror by Michael & Roberta Findlay.
With Margarita Amuchástegui, Ana Carro and Liliana Fernández Blanco.
YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

A patched together horror that was banned as a Video Nasty. Passed 18 uncut by the BBFC in 2003

Summary Review: Publicity is more interesting than the film

Like many films that appeared in the early 70s and raised a stink for one reason or another - the publicity surrounding the Findlay's film Snuff is more interesting than the film itself.

In fact, this film - which supposedly depicted the actual dismembering of a young girl - caused such a fuss when it played in New York that the mayor demanded that the perpetrators be captured and prosecuted. That is, of course, until the producers admitted that the film was a fraud and produced the dead actress for all to see.

This film is nothing more than a late 60s Hell's Angels biker movie with a tacked on ending in which the film's director disembowels a young blond girl. Not sexual, and hardly interesting - the snuff bit of the film is hardly impressive as far as either shock or special effects.

Of course, you have to sit through a turgid tale of bikers and drug smuggling to even get to this bit - and it just isn't worth it.

The theatrical release was MPAA rated PG-13 for some thematic elements. Presumably the producers wanted a PG rating have appealed against the PG-13 decision.

1s PG Cert 81:39s 2004 US comedy by Sandy Tung

This was cut when submitted in 2004 with the following BBFC explanation:

Company chose to cut sight of a forceful head butt to accord with BBFC Guidelines on imitable techniques at PG. A 15 uncut was available.

On the football field, a young man (not the hero, but a role model) delivered a powerful head butt to the conceited villain and then explained that sometimes it is the only way to resolve matters. This scenario is an excellent example of why we might intervene at 'PG'. Encouraging children to use head butts, especially on the football field, as the best way to resolve a dispute, is a matter of serious concern.

Summary Notes

In a future in which most water has disappeared from the Earth, we find a group of children, mostly teenagers, who are living at an orphanage, run by the despotic rulers of the new Earth. The group in question plays a hockey based game on roller skates and is quite good. It has given them a unity that transcends the attempts to bring them to heel by the government. Finding an orb of special power, they find it has unusual effects on them. They escape from the orphanage (on skates) and try to cross the wasteland looking for a place they can live free as the stormtroopers search for them and the orb.

With
Erika Bergmann, Penny Riley and Christopher Matthews. BBFC link IMDb
Originally filmed as Come Back Peter which was passed X uncut for 1969 and 1974 cinema release. In 1971 the director added extra sex scenes for continental film sales. This longer version was later released on UK VHS in 1990 and 1995 but suffered BBFC cuts. Reported to be uncut for the 2011 DVD.

Summary Review: Collinson Twins

A view from the sixties with the main man driving around London in his e-type picking up girls at will.

The film comes from a pretty tame period in terms of sex, but was perked up with a new version in the mid 70's. Nudity was added to the old sex scenes via body doubles. Most notably, new material was added featuring the Collinson Twins, Mary and Madeline. They at least could do their own nudity.

From IMDb. New scenes with the Collinson twins were edited in, together with some extra sex scenes involving body doubles for a re-issue.

From a submission by Donovan Winter included in the 2012 Nucleus release in which he spoke of opportunities at the Canne film festival in 1971:

Several overseas sales ensued, immediately so in France. But now I found myself up against a dichotomy. The 'sex' in the film was only titillating rather than aggressive. It was too soft for Germany and Scandinavia where they had progressed beyond that and demanded more. We need as much sex as possible in the film. While in other more reserved countries there was still too much! It seemed you just couldn't win. The distributor demanded explicit scenes which he could cut if necessary as required by the judges.

I left the print with the French distributor in Paris - which he required for dubbing. Then I returned to London to set to work once again. The additional 'sex' scenes necessary barely required scripting. All I needed were my actors, or doubles for them, to simulate the act of copulation. I went back into four of the locations and shot another eight minutes of simulated sex which I tagged on to the scenes already in the can. I never dared show them to the British censor, of course! But they did enable me to sell the film to more countries like Germany and the U.S., although I was told they were still not hard enough for Scandinavia.

Keeping the attack to herself, Mary Ann runs away, seeking to lose herself in Manhattan by renting a seedy flat and taking a job in a dime store. Overwhelmed by people's hostility and her own despair, Mary Ann tries to jump off the Manhattan Bridge, only to be stopped by Mike, a garage mechanic who takes her back to his modest basement apartment nearby. At first appreciative of Mike's kindness, Mary Ann becomes terrified when he refuses to let her leave. Is Mike really Mary Ann's rescuer - or is he another rapist?

From IMDB. To attract a teen audience, this movie was edited from the R Rated Killer Cut Version to the PG-13 rated Theatrical Version:

  • A different opening to the movie. This establishes how the scarred and masked men are killers. They attack a girl who has the same symbol that is stamped onto her hand as Cassie and the others. The killers grab her, throw her to the ground, tape her mouth shut, and then slit her wrists, squeezing the blood out of the cut.
  • A briefly shown scene of a girl with a see-through top at the Rave party.
  • The brief sex scene between Cassie and Sean is stronger. It shows her remove her top (facing away from the camera).
  • The lesbian scene between Annabel and Raven is stronger too. They are shown kissing more graphically (licking each others tongues), and then Annabel rips open Raven's shirt which shows her breasts to the camera. Annabel then very briefly caresses Raven's breasts before running away.
  • Cassie opens up a locker to find that her dinosaur that she grabbed in the beginning has been decapitated with blood all over the inside of the locker and on the dinosaur's head and body.
  • The scene where Cassie is chased by the killer has more blood. After she has smashed the light bulb over the killers head and gotten grabbed by him again, she plunges the light bulb through his stomach and it shows it come out the other side. Lots of blood then pours out of the tube onto the ground.
  • The scene where Cassie dreams that the drill goes near her head has been made longer. It actually shows the drill go into her head, which causes blood to come out.
  • The scene where Annabel and Raven are in the bathroom at the Rave has more to it. Annabel is seen standing up with her legs spread to Raven. Raven brings her head back from being close to between Annabel's legs, and says love these unisex bathrooms .

15 101:15s UK: Passed 15 for strong violence, gore after 2:33s of BBFC cuts for:

The BBFC cuts were:

  • Cuts were required to remove a detailed focus on a particular suicide technique.

See  pictorial cuts details from  movie-censorship.com . The distributors deleted the entire pre-credits scene depicting a suicide. The distributors had in fact 3 options:

  • No cuts and the film would be banned
  • 16s of cuts to remove just the vertical cutting details of the suicide but leaving the suicide otherwise in place. This would then have been 18 rated. (Suicide in films for under 18s is a very sensitive area these days).
  • Deleting the suicide film entirely resulted in a 15 rating.

See article from starburstmagazine.com :

The BBFC demanded 16 seconds be removed from the two and a half minute scene in order to be granted a rating, but the required edits ended up masticating the opening to such an extent Carolyn decided it would be better to just remove it entirely rather than risk it coming across as precisely the kind of watered down, almost romanticised portrayal of suicide she was intentionally trying to avoid. As this was by far the most graphic scene of the whole film, without it the rating ended up downgraded to a 15.

Previously the director wrote that the BBFC had requested cuts. See  article from  uk.movies.yahoo.com : Cuts requested

The BBFC have requested cuts be made to the British-made supernatural romance Soulmate .

The feature debut of writer-director Axelle Carolyn, Soulmate stars Anna Walton as a grieving widow who seeks solace in a remote country cottage - but finds it occupied by a ghost (Tom Wisdom), with whom she gradually builds a friendship.

The source of the trouble, it seems, is the film's opening scene, in which Walton's distraught character attempts suicide by slitting her wrists in the bath; a fairly distressing sight, for sure, but hardly without precedent.

However, the BBFC said that this constitutes imitable behaviour with the potential to cause harm, and has asked for sequence to be re-edited before before granting a certificate.

This issue has cropped up before and presumably the suicide depicts an effective method of suicide that is not widely known. The BBFC cuts are intended to try and keep it that way, albeit that the secret is largely let out of the bag already.

Axelle Carolyn is not best pleased about the BBFC's stance. She voiced her anger on Twitter. 

BBFC has required 4 long sets of cuts for SOULMATE. Otherwise it's banned. Take that, splat pack: I made a video nasty without even trying. -

The BBFC says, Imitable behavior, potential harm. Basically my opening scene could cause a wave of suicides in the UK.

US: MPAA R Rated for:

MPAA Censors in the US insisted on cuts to  dialogue describing bestiality, oral and anal sex in order for the film to receive a 'R' rating.

From ATTIC the cuts include:

  • In the class room, the dialogue which Cartman yells to Mr Garrison with a megaphone was originally How would you like to gargle rat jiz?, and not the milder How would you like to suck my balls?.
  • The dialogue in the school counsellor's office by Mrs Cartman of what is "fisting": That's when the fist is inserted into the anus, or vagina for sexual pleasure was changed to a dialogue about licking ass.
  • The "Scheisse" video was originally a video of Mrs Cartman sucking a horse's dick.
  • Also, MPAA demanded that the film's title (!) have to be changed (they have a policy that all titles that pass them have to be rated 'G'!!) from "South Park - All Hell Breaks Loose" to its present. Very ironically, the MPAA didn't get the penis reference in the present title, and approved it!

There's no sign of this censored material being restored and so the R rated version has become the definitive

The US release is cut and MPAA Unrated for:

The two controversial episodes titled 200 and 201 have at least been included, but censored as per the latest TV version.

Originally the religious figure of Mohammed was depicted as a teddy bear when shown in episode 200. After kicking off a bit of a fuss, in the second part, 201, all shots of the character were obscured by a black silhouette marked CENSORED. Every mention of Mohammed was also bleeped out.

The two part episode in question features a typically convoluted plotline in which Tom Cruise (previously pilloried as gay and for being a scientologist) rounds up 200 other celebrities who have been targets of the show's satire in order to launch a class-action defamation suit against the town of South Park. Cruise also wrangles Muhammad into his scheme, secretly motivated by a desire to harness the prophet's goo , which grants immunity to ridicule. Throughout, Muhammad is dressed in a bear suit, an ironic nod to the prohibition on showing images of Islam's founding father. and the blasphemy accusation against a British teacher in Sudan who let her class of kids name a teddy bear Mohammed.

One of the best from a genre of Harry Novak produced hillbilly softcore sex comedies. 3 girls get stranded in the sticks when their car breaks down. See them skinny dip, see them rape the country bumpkin, see them strip in a barn and strut their stuff.

One of the 3 women is Monica Gayle, and her fans will not be disappointed as she spends about 75% of the film nude. Another lead character, Judy Angel, would soon appear in hard core films.

This film was originally seen for advice in an unfinished version. The company was advised it was likely to be classified 15 but that their preferred 12A could be obtained by making reductions:
  • in a scene of violence (Mr. Hinx gouging out the eyes of another Spectre agent).

    and

  • in another scene showing the aftermath of a violent act (Aftermath of Mr. White's suicide).  

When the film was submitted for formal classification, acceptable reductions had been made in both scenes and the film was classified 12A.

Spectre was top with 40 complaints. The BBFC commented in its 2015 Annual Report:

Complaints about Spectre focussed on scenes of violence. During postproduction, the distributor sought advice on whether it could secure a 12A classification and if so, how. One scene involving an eye-gouging was slightly too strong for the company's preferred 12A classification. We therefore suggested reductions to this scene. What remains in the classified version of the scene is a brief implication of what is happening, with only limited visual detail.

There is also a torture scene. Although the idea is unpleasant there is limited detail depicted. Given the lack of detail in the scene and the context of an action film featuring a larger-than-life hero character who always defeats his enemies, this moderate violence is acceptable at 12A. Another scene, showing the bloody aftermath of a suicide, was similarly reduced.

US:  Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, sensuality and language.

Review from US Amazon : Saucy Holland Days

Spetters (a Dutch slang term for male ejaculate) remains the in-your-face director's most audacious and fascinating work to date. Popular in Holland but largely ignored upon its initial U.S. release, the film has slowly built a cult following over the years, thanks to word-of-mouth amongst film buffs and some critical backpedalling due to Verhoven's subsequent box-office successes.

Following the hormone-fueled misadventures (from comedic to tragic) of a trio of motocross-obsessed teenage pals and thier girlfriends, the film is a sort of Dutch take on Saturday Night Fever or Quadrophenia with a pinch of social satire tossed in.

The young (mostly unknown) principal players all deliver energetic, superb performances and are ably supported by Jeroen Krabbe and Rutger Hauer.

The MGM DVD thankfully restores the 8 minutes of "graphic" sexuality (not really that shocking to Europeans) that was excised in order to earn an "R" rating and make the film more palatable to our "puritan" American tastes.

See article from en.wikipedia.org :

Before the film's British theatrical release in June 2002, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) gave the film a 12 certificate.

Due to Spider-Man's popularity with younger children, this prompted much controversy. The BBFC defended their decision, arguing that the film could have been given a 15 .

Despite this, North Norfolk and Breckland District Councils, in East Anglia, changed it to a PG , and Tameside council, Manchester, denoted it a PG-12 . The U.S. rated it PG-13 for stylized violence and action .

In late August, the BBFC relaxed their policy to 12A , leading Sony to re-release the film

Thanks to Byron:
 
The UK Blu-ray of Spider-man 2 is uncut with the headbutt in tact that the BBFC cut in 2004. Sony has used the US disc to master the UK disc. This can be seen by the PG-13 rating before the film starts and the US copyright warnings. With HD there is no NTSC or PAL issues so (in this case thankfully) lazy film studios can just use their US masters as HD is 24 frames per second the world over.
 
Spider-man 2 on Blu-ray also comes with Spider-man 2.1 and can only be brought as a box set trilogy with films 1 and 3.

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice regarding the classification of this film. Following this advice, sight of a headbutt was removed prior to the work being submitted for classification. The submitted work was passed without cuts.
cut 12A cert 128:06s
=122:59s
The IMAX cinema version was passed 12A in 2004
From the BBFC website: IMAX
 
When classifying a film for cinema release the Board carefully considers the impact of the special effects and sound track on the likely audience. In the case of SPIDER-MAN 2 the Board believes that the huge screens and powerful sound systems in IMAX cinemas, designed to deliver an intense cinematographic experience, mean that some young children may find the film more 'scary' than they would if they saw it at a 'traditional' cinema.
 
The '12A' rating does not mean that young fans cannot see the film as children under 12 years of age can see a '12A' rated film if they are accompanied by an adult. The '12A' rating for IMAX cinemas is designed to help parents with young or sensitive children to make sure that their trip to the cinema is not a distressing experience.

  • UK 2008 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

Distributor chose to make cuts to achieve a 12A classification, removing:
  • focus on knives as a group of hoodlums surround and threaten a woman;
  • sight of the hero mounting his foe on the ground and repeatedly punching him in the head;
  • sight of a severed finger flying towards the camera
  • part of a man's rib-cage embedded in the ground.

A 15 certificate without cuts was available.

The BBFC further explained their 12A cinema certificate:

The Spirit is an action adventure film based on a comic, and directed by Frank Miller in a similar style to SIN CITY or 300. It was classified '12A' for moderate violence.

In The Spirit , we see comic book characters fighting each other with a range of weapons including pistols, knives and machine guns. There is also hand-to-hand fighting throughout the film, including sight of punches and kicks to the face. There is occasional sight of blood during the film, such as when The Spirit pulls a knife from his leg after being attacked or when we see a body lying on a morgue slab with entry wounds in the torso.

At '12A', the BBFC's Guidelines state that 'violence must not dwell on detail' and 'there should be no emphasis on injuries or blood'. During The Spirit , the violence is relatively frequent but is shown with a style that clearly denotes the comic book origins of the story - the characters are larger than life, and much of the film is in black and white with dashes of colour, so that in the rare instances blood is shown it may be bright red with everything surrounding it in monochrome. While such a style draws attention to the blood, it does so in a manner befitting a graphic novel rather than in a realistic sense, and furthermore there is little actual detail shown during the violence. The comedic slant of the film also highlights the sense of the fantastical throughout.

The film includes brief nudity during a scene in which a female character is ordered to put her hands behind her head - she does so and her towel slips off. There is no focus on her naked body other than a blurred frontal shot in the background & brief rear nudity.

The film also contains mild language such as 'son of a bitch', 'piss me off' and 'bastards'.

Spirited Away

  • Sen To Chihiro No Kamikakushi
uncut     Japanese anime by Hayao Miyazaki

The main feature is uncut but the DVD extras have been causing confusion as pointed out by Anthony:

In the PG-rated Optimum Releasing release from 2004, the extra bonus feature The Making Of Spirited Away : Nippon TV Special had 7 seconds cut to remove the following subtitles just over 16 minutes into the documentary, in which one of Miyazaki's animators' dialogue is translated as Haven't you finished yours yet, boss?' to which Miyazaki's subtitled reply is Fuck! I'm working my arse off here! . The footage is still there, as is the spoken Japanese dialogue and Japanese subtitles, but the two lines of dialogue lose those English subtitles.

In the 12-rated Optimum Releasing release from 2005, the aforementioned two subtitles do indeed appear, although the extras disc itself still has the previous release's design complete with the original PG certificate, despite the fact that the casing clearly carries a 12 certificate. Whoops!

Squirm

Squirm Blu ray Don Scardino

Squirm is a 1976 USA horror by Jeff Lieberman.
With Don Scardino, Patricia Pearcy, R.A. Dow. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

There's an uncut R rated version and a cut US PG version. The PG was distributed on VHS whilst the uncut version has been distributed on DVD and Blu-ray.

Summary Notes

One of the most original and entertaining of the revenge-of-nature films that characterised mid-1970s American horror, Squirm begins with a pylon being downed by a thunderstorm, sending millions of volts into the wet, conductive mud, which naturally gives hundreds of thousands of its wriggly inhabitants an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

And since the accident has also inconveniently cut off the electricity to Fly Creek, Georgia, its population could hardly be more vulnerable when the sun goes down. Houses can be barricaded against most intruders, but what happens when they're small enough to get into the water supply?

Writer-director Jeff Lieberman (who also made the cult classics Blue Sunshine and Just Before Dawn ) achieves a near-perfect blend of knowing wit and good old-fashioned scares, with make-up genius Rick Baker ( An American Werewolf in London ) on hand for some of the memorably disgusting special effects.

The BBFC further commented in its Annual Report covering 2015:

The Telugu language drama Srimanthudu required cuts to the sight of two roosters in a cockfighting scene. The BBFC sought assurances and the distributor provided documentation from the Animal Welfare Board of India. While this suggested the animals were not injured in the filming of the scene, the action nonetheless involved the animals in cruel goading to fury . Consequently, cuts were required.

Banned as a video nasty in 1983. Released uncut on 18 rated 2006 DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Summary Review: Highly dubious taste

This is a sleazy WW2 Nazi camp movie which plays more like a black comedy. In this film the poor female POW's get raped and groped by all and sundry at the camp.

They are subjected to some inexplicable experiments, which often seem to involve forced copulation with a group of Nazi studs. The purpose of the experiments is to find the best stud from this Aryan select and transfer his balls onto the camp commandant who, as we discover, lost his when a Russian woman he was raping bit his off.

Now, the above synopsis may well make the film sound deeply depraved and offensive. Well, it is sleazy and in highly dubious taste but the execution of the film is so amateurish and unrealistic that it really sounds a lot worse than it actually is.

US: Uncut and MPAA Unrated for:

The BBFC had few qualms in passing it uncut for sale in the UK with the following justification (reproduced from one of the newsgroups) :

The content of the film is in fact very mild and poorly executed. If anything, it was the title of the film and its original packaging that led to difficulties, rather than the content. The idea of the film may, of course, be offensive to some but that is not a good enough reason to cut or reject it. We would only cut or reject a film for adults if the content was illegal or harmful. SS Experiment Camp is neither illegal or harmful, just tasteless.

The uncut region 2 DVD should have been available in Feb 2006, BUT due to some unfortunate mistake in production, the film actually release was a 1981 soft porn film, Love Camp, starring Laura Gemser. Sorted by the reissue in April 2006.

Summary Review : Achtung! Cheese Alert!

Top Nazi officials, intent on rooting out traitors and those in the military who may be plotting to overthrow Adolf Hitler, recruit and train a group of beautiful prostitutes whose mission is to use any means necessary to uncover plots against the Fuhrer.

A heaped platter of cheesy chuckles served up by a harem of naked Euro-sluts.

Other than running about 10 minutes too long (director Bruno Mattei, who also co-scripted, tacks on a pointless soliloquy by a minor character near the end), SS GIRLS hits all the right Eurotrash notes. There's oodles of female nudity (with some lesbianism and S&M in the mix), a number of scenes in very bad taste (that thankfully don't get TOO revolting), and loads of unintentional humor.
