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.

 

 

Slumber Party Massacre II...

1987 US comedy horror by Deborah Brock, previously banned by the BBFC, now just passed 15 uncut


Link Here14th July 2024
Slumber Party Massacre II is a 1987 US comedy horror by Deborah Brock.
With Crystal Bernard, Jennifer Rhodes and Kimberly McArthur. Melon Farmers link  BBFC link 2020  IMDb
Banned by the BBFC in 1988 after an extensive cuts list was refused. The film remained unreleased until 2024 when it was 15 rated and uncut. In the US it exists in a Theatrical R rated version, and an Extended Version which is MPAA Unrated

Summary Review: Amusing Enough

More of a comic vein than its predecessor and now in a musical setting.

The weapon of choice is an electric guitar cum electric drill. The death scenes are very twisted with the killer playing guitar and singing as he kills his victims.

A favourite scene of mine involves death by acne. One of the central characters is actually engulfed by a rapid growing zit, until it pops all over the protagonist and she is presumed dead - that is until she walks through the front door about 10 minutes later.

The over-the-topness seems to be amusing enough. For bad movie fans, that is.

rejectedUK: Presumably it was the Extended Version that was banned by the BBFC for:
  • 1988 Lazer VHS

From IMDB. The BBFC offered an extensive cuts list which was not acceptable to the distributor, and so the video was banned.

The BBFC commented in the Annual Report covering 1988:

Scenes of terrorising, blood-letting and gleeful infliction of pain underlined an unacceptable tone of sadism in a work purporting to be a satirical horror fantasy but developing a pervasive undercurrent of mutilation as fun.

Shown on the Horror Channel in 2006

The second film in Fernando Di Leo's Milieu trilogy of Milano Calibro 9, La Mala Ordina aka Manhunt and Il Boss .

An excellent and breathtaking crime epic that no lover of Italian genre-cinema could possibly afford to miss.

The tough-minded and violent film is breathtaking from the beginning to the end and profits from a brilliant cast.

Squeals of outrage...

Police Federation bosses object to title of new ITV police comedy called Piglets


Link Here9th July 2024
A new ITV comedy show titled Piglets has raised the heckles of the police.

The new series, which is set to start airing on July 20, follows the experiences of a group of trainee officers as they start prepping to join the police force.

The Police Federation issued a statement hitting out at the name of the series, with the Acting Chair calling it disgusting. Tiffany Lynch, Acting National Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said:

The new ITV show titled Piglets is highly offensive to police officers risking their lives to protect the public every day by providing an emergency service. It is a disgusting choice of language to use for the title of a TV programme. Our colleagues are working hard and keeping people safe under relentless negative pressure at the moment, insulting our new in service officers is unhelpful.

We should not be put at further risk for viewing numbers, our officers deserve respect, not humiliation for the job they are undertaking. It is actually incredibly dangerous to incite more negativity and misinformation against a public sector service that's already under so much pressure.

Despite the criticsim ITV has stood strong in their decision to air the series under the title Piglets, emphasizing that the show is fictional. A spokesperson told GB News:

Piglets is a fictional new comedy about a police training academy and the title is not intended to cause any offence, it's a comedic and endearing play on words to emphasise the innocence and youth of our young trainees.

The Police Federation have made clear that they intend to reach out to Ofcom and make an official complaint about the comedy show.
