Macabre is a 1980 Italy horror thriller by Lamberto Bava.
Starring Bernice Stegers, Stanko Molnar and Veronica Zinny. IMDb

Never censored but played a small part in British censorship history when the VHS was held up at the 1983 Conservative Party conference during the video nasties panic as an example of everything rotten in the video industry and proof that censorship was urgently needed.

Macbeth is a 2018 UK drama by Kit Monkman.
Starring Wunmi Mosaku, Al Weaver and Mark Rowley. IMDb

The film was pre-cut for a 12A rated cinema release in 2018. Presumably will later be 15 and uncut on home video.
Summary Notes

Brilliant young general Macbeth pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to an indolent court where honours are dispensed by whim. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and an ambitious wife, Macbeth sets his sights on the throne. In Kit Monkman's adventurous new adaptation, this compelling tale of unchecked ambition, soured friendship, lost intimacy and the descent into nihilism is encountered in a strange and claustrophobic territory partly conjured by the mind.

Summary Review: So bad, it's funny

On their way to a disco, Hal and his 'girlfriend' are accosted by a band of Hell's Angels. As they drive away, Hal accidentally runs over one, killing him. The Angels pursue the couple and catch up with them as they are leaving the disco. They savagely beat up Hal and brutally rape his girlfriend. Hal swears revenge.

This is one of the most disturbing (and not to mention unintentionally funny) films I've ever seen. The dubbing is atrocious, the violence over-the-top, and the full frontal nudity extreme, there is a LOT of male frontal nudity in this film; so much so that I suspect that either the writer or director was...well, INTO male full frontal nudity.

It's so bad, it's funny.

The video was seized subject to an Obscene Publications Act Section 3 Seizure Order.

Mad Max is a 1979 Australian action adventure film by George Miller.
With Mel Gibson, Joanne Samuel and Hugh Keays-Byrne. YouTube icon BBFC link 2020 IMDb

Cut and 18 rated by the BBFC for 1979 cinema release and early VHS. Later releases are uncut. The film was downrated to 15 for 2015 cinema release. There are alternative soundtracks, the original Australian, and a dubbed American version.

Summary Notes

A vision of an apocalyptic future set in the wastelands of Australia. Total social decay is just around the corner in this spectacular cheap budget gang orientated road movie, where the cops do their best to lay down the law and the outlaw gangs try their hardest to defy the system. Leather clad Max Rockatansky husband, father and cop turns judge, juror and executioner after his best friend, wife and baby are killed. Here we see the final days of normality of a man who had everything to live for, and his slip into the abyss of madness. Mad Max is the antihero on the road to vengeance and oblivion.

From sBBFC: The distributors sent this film to the BBFC with a request that they receive a U. The problem for the BBFC was that the film included the word motherf***** . Although the word was not used in full, it was clear to the audience what was meant. The BBFC felt that the word was inappropriate in a film aimed at the very youngest viewers and offered a higher category with no cuts. But the distributor wanted a U and so chose to make a cut to remove the offending word to secure this category.

Summary Review: One of the Better Nasties

Julia, a teacher in a school for the deaf, has a hideosly disformed and deranged twin sister that resides in the local looney bin. She escapes to gate-crash a surprise birthday party for Julia by murdering all the party guests with the help of a giant killer Alsation dog, which gets it's come-uppance when lobotomised by a power drill, in a scene that will offend most animal lovers.

"Madhouse" is one of the better films that was previously on the "banned" list of so-called video nasties in the UK. It didn't really deserve it's place on the list, but it's easy to spot the scenes that probably put it there.

T he film features two pretty over-the top gore scenes that seem almost out of place in a movie that exercises restraint in most aspects. The most infamous sequence is the one that shows just how you can put down a dangerous attacking rottweiler with a handy power drill. The other is an axe attack that is so drawn out it becomes almost surreal.

Although some of the time the action can get rather slow, this slasher stands above it's rivals due to some really good cinematography.

  • 2013 cinema release

The BBFC passed the film 15 uncut for strong violence and injury detail. The BBFC InSight alluded to the emotional impact of the film:

This is a sombre drama and the violence is depicted realistically, with a strong emotional impact. In the opening scene people are forced off a bus and made to kneel in a field as they are massacred. Blood spurts are seen as several of them are shot in the back, and in a more distant image a little girl is shot too as she tries to run away. Several executions are shown, including a man tied to a post, his body juddering under fire with lots of blood as he is killed.

The movie is proving controversial in India as it is based on the Sri Lankan civil war and speculates about the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi. Tamil activist groups are calling for the film to be banned. The film was passed by the Indian censors and escaped court bans but was banned by cinema exhibitors in the state of Tamil nadu.

Now the film has been banned by British cinemas in August 2013. UK cinema chains, Cineworld, Odeon and Vue, have banned the film saying in a statement:

Our policy is to show a wide range of films for different audiences ...HOWEVER... following customer feedback and working with the film distributors, we have decided to not show Madras Cafe. We apologise for any inconvenience.

See case history from bbfc.co.uk

Summary Review: Bound to Intrigue
Gérard Depardieu as Olivier enters an apartment in order to rob the place, but unknowingly breaks into a haven for sadomasochistic fantasies. During the burglary he encounters Ariane (Bulle Ogier) who he had met earlier, but this time she is a dominatrix who controls situations as she dives into other people's madness.

Olivier is spellbound by Ariane as he falls in love with her, and it leads him into a scorching affair where he is bound to be burnt as he is mystified by Ariane's dark trade.

Maitresse is an avant-garde film as it explores in-depth the theme of sadomasochistic fantasies and its sub-culture as set in a love story.

The BBFC explained:

On this occasion, it was decided that the 1981 cuts to sight of genital detail were no longer required under the terms of BBFC Guidelines or policy, and that the scenes of sadomasochism were permissible, in this specific context, at 18 . It was recognised that the film was a serious exploration of a difficult subject rather than a prurient or exploitative work. It was also agreed that the scenes in question were unlikely to lead to a risk of harm to adult audiences in the 21st century, given the relative restraint in their presentation, certainly by contemporary standards.

  • Edits to shots of abrasions after a man is whipped and subsequently probed with a needle between his buttocks
  • Edits to a scene where a male client has his genitals nailed to a plank of wood and his nipples pierced. This was particularly graphic. The scene showed a few pins going through the skin around the penis rather than through it. No blood either.

The BBFC explained: The BBFC have changed:

Encouraged by a change in the law enabling us to consider the film as a whole instead of throwing our pinnies over our heads over the decency of its component parts, enabled by the same legislation to consider the audience the film is likely to reach, encouraged by the gradual spread of cinemas catering to an intelligent audience [...] we have changed more than we, or certainly I, would have realised without this confrontation with ourselves of four years ago .

The BBFC's James Ferman explained the ban:

After a second viewing with Lord Harlech and other Examiners, we now agree that this is really a picture which cannot be granted a national certificate at this time. We all feel it is a film of some merit which deserves a showing in Britain, but its subject matter and very frank treatment would, we believe, make it unacceptable to the majority of licensing authorities in the country without very heavy cuts, and these might change the nature of the film.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a 2018 USA musical music film by Ol Parker.
Starring Lily James, Meryl Streep and Christine Baranski. IMDb

Abba changed the lyrics to some of its classic hits to make them more acceptable to today's PC world. Tracks rerecorded for this summer's blockbuster movie, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, have been altered to remove any hint of inappropriate relationships between young girls and older men.

The biggest change comes in the 1976 song When I Kissed The Teacher , about a female student besotted with her male teacher. It originally featured the line:

One of these days, Gonna tell him I dream of him every night. One of these days, Gonna show him I care. Gonna teach him a lesson alright.

But the film version changes the teacher's gender and the emphasis:

What a mad day, Now I see everything in a different light. What a mad day, I was up in the air. And she taught me a lesson alright.
