The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a 2021 USA horror mystery thriller by Michael Chaves
Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Julian Hilliard BBFC link 2020 IMDb

Uncut and MPA R rated in the US. This was initially rated 18 uncut, by the BBFC but the distributors preferred a cut 15 rated version for 2021 cinema release. For home video the 4K Blu-ray is uncut but all the other formats are cut. The film is rated 16 uncut by IFCO for Irish cinema release.

BBFC cuts

The BBFC commented about the cut UK Version:

The distributor chose to reduce bloody injury detail in a suicide scene in order to obtain a 15 classification. An uncut 18 classification was available.

Of course the BBFC is referring to vertical wrist slitting which is disallowed at 15.

See the uncut scene in video from streamable.com . Ben comments:

I've seen the uncut footage and 18 is absurdly harsh. It's demonic possession and *technically* self-harm, but not an attempted suicide at all as the BBFC called it. You see glass and blood on the man's wrist but no clear sign of process and injury

UK: Passed 18 uncut for strong injury detail, horror:

UK: The UK edit was passed 15 for strong threat, horror, violence after BBFC category cuts:

Uncut in the US

US: Uncut and MPA R rated for terror, violence and some disturbing images:

Promotional Material

One of the most sensational cases from Ed and Lorraine Warren's files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they'd ever seen before.

Promotional Material

Umberto Lenzi, the legendary director of Cannibal Ferox, kicked off the Italian police film craze with this hyper-kinetic, ultra-violent, brain-blasting action thriller. Maurizio Merli stars as an Italian Dirty Harry, punching and shooting his way through the sleazy drug, sex, and crime infested cesspool of mid-'70s Rome, on the trail of a sadistic, machine gun-toting hunchback, played by Tomas Milian (Brother's Till We Die).

Boasting a state-of-the-art 4K transfer of Lenzi's uncensored director's cut, the new edition of The Tough Ones includes an incredible slate of special features and a "Grindhouse Version" of the US Brutal Justice release.
