18UK: Passed 18 for strong bloody violence, strong sex after 32s of BBFC compulsory cuts for:
  • 2014 88 Films video
The BBFC commented:
  • Cut required to a sequence of sadistic and sexualised violence involving a child.
The BBFC further commented in the Annual Report covering 2014:

The Spanish Chainsaw Massacre is a Spanish film in which a heavy metal band find themselves in a village of cannibals after their van breaks down. The BBFC removed a sequence of sadistic and sexualised violence involving a child before passing the film 18.

The film also includes scenes of characters being torn open and having their intestines pulled out, a penis being bitten and torn off, and a foetus being pulled from a woman's body.

Thanks to Mike who adds:

The US DVD contains the full version, and I can confirm that the cut is to a scene fairly early on in which a woman with breasts exposed is chased through woodland by a local and is then beaten repeatedly over the head with a rock while a girl (child) is watching a few feet away.

Frankly the BBC made it sound much worse than it is. It's only sexualised in that the victim's shirt is open, and the sadism is due to the number of blows to the head. The gore effects are pretty poor anyway. Nothing sadistic is done to the child, and and nothing sexualised happens to her either. She just stands there watching. It's actually quite a notable BBFC decision in that they very rarely cut scenes in which a child actor is exposed to violence on the set. But that's what happened here.

THE VALIANT RED PEONY: Red Peony Gambler I-III

Link Here

THE VALIANT RED PEONY: Red Peony Gambler I-III is a film set by Kosaku YAMASHITA, Norifumi SUZUKI, Tai KATO
Starring Junko FUJI, Ken TAKAKURA and Tomisaburo WAKAYAMA

There are no censorship issues with this release.
UK: Passed Suitable for 15 years and over uncut for:

Promotional Material

Originally released between 1968 and 1972, the Red Peony Gambler series is a cornerstone of the ninkyo eiga genre and a clear influence on such cult favourites such as Lady Snowblood and Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill . The Masters of Cinema series is proud to present the first three Red Peony Gambler films, starring Junko Fuji ( 13 Assassins ) and directed by three titans of Japanese genre cinema in Kosaku Yamashita, Norifumi Suzuki and Tai Kato .

Set during the Meiji era, Red Peony Gambler stars Fuji as Ryuko Yano, the daughter of a gambler. When her father is murdered, Ryuko takes on a new name derived from the crimson flower tattooed on her shoulder -- "Oryu, the Red Peony" -- and sets out for revenge. Then, in Red Peony Gambler 2: Gambler's Obligation , Oryu falls in with a group of yakuza attempting to monopolise the silk trade. When machinations within the gang lead to a betrayal, the Red Peony takes action. Finally, in Red Peony Gambler 3: The Flower Cards Game , Oryu meets a pair of star-crossed lovers as she becomes embroiled in a conflict between rival yakuza clans.

Fuji would go on to play the Red Peony five more times, cementing the character as the archetype for many of the vengeful women to follow in Japanese cinema and beyond. These early entries in the Red Peony Gambler series are presented here for the first time ever on Blu-ray from brand new restorations of the original film elements by Toei.

SPECIAL EDITION TWO-DISC BLU-RAY FEATURES:

Limited edition O-card slipcase featuring new artwork by Grégory Sacré (Gokaiju) [First print run of 2000 copies only] | 1080p HD presentation of all three films from restorations of the original film elements supplied by Toei | Original Japanese audio tracks (uncompressed LPCM mono) | Brand new audio commentary tracks on all three films | Tony Rayns on Red Peony Gambler -- brand new interview with critic and Asian cinema expert Tony Rayns | Trailers | PLUS: A collector's booklet featuring new writing by Jennifer Coates ( Making Icons: Repetition and the Female Image in Japanese Cinema, 1945--1964 ) and Joe Hickinbottom

Promotional Material

Celebrated as the 'Godfather of British Horror', Pete Walker is one of the most controversial exploitation filmmakers of the '60s and '70s. Graduating from saucy sex comedies and gangland dramas, Walker finally found tabloid infamy making gore-splattered horror movies (or "terror movies" as he preferred to call them). His first X-rated thriller Die Screaming, Marianne shocked audiences, and subsequent films like House of Whipcord established his reputation for sadistic and bloody horror, cementing his status as the biggest cult British filmmaker of his generation.

Now for the very first time, Walker's seventies' horror movies are collected on Blu-ray in this terrifying new box-set, starring a host of famous faces: Robin Askwith (Horror Hospital), Stephanie Beacham (Inseminoid), Ann Michelle (Virgin Witch), Susan Penhaligon (The Uncanny), Luan Peter (Hammer's Lust for a Vampire) and his favourite actress, and omnipresent 'scary old lady', Sheila Keith.

The Pete Walker Heritage Collection brings together Die Screaming, Marianne (1971), The Flesh and Blood Show (1972), House of Whipcord (1974), Frightmare (1974), House of Mortal Sin (1976) Schizo (1977) and The Comeback (1978), all presented here in brand new HD restorations, and featuring a scary array of exclusive extras, including brand-new interviews with Walker himself.

Promotional Material

Perhaps even God can't save the Queen in Golden Harvest's A Queen's Ransom (also known as International Assassin), an explosive action-thriller starring George Lazenby (The Man from Hong Kong), Angela Mao (Lady Whirlwind) and the legendary Jimmy Wang Yu (The One-Armed Swordsman).

As Queen Elizabeth II arrives in Hong Kong for a state visit, a band of skilled mercenaries plan her assassination. Contracted by an Irish Republican (Lazenby), the international group of hired killers includes a Japanese explosives expert (Chang Pei-shan), a Thai boxer (Bolo Yeung), a Filipino sniper (Peter Chan Lung) and a veteran of the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam (Wang Yu). As the conspirators move to carry out their plot, two police officials (Ko Chun-Hsiung and Charles Heung) work with a young socialite (Tanny Tien Ni) in a race against time to save the Monarch's head - while also trying to manage a crisis that has brought a huge number of refugees to Hong Kong, including a young Cambodian princess (Mao).

Written and directed by Ting Shan-hsi (Rebel Boxer), A Queen's Ransom was Golden Harvest's attempt to capitalize on the popular success of the political thriller in the wake of The Day of the Jackal. Eureka Classics is proud to present the film for the first time ever on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration.
