advised category cuts
UK: Passed 15 for very strong and racist language, strong violence after BBFC advised pre-cuts for:
2015 cinema release
The BBFC commented:
This film was originally seen for advice. The company was advised the film was likely to be classified 18 but that their preferred 15 could be achieved by reducing the number of uses of very strong language. When the film was
submitted for formal classification, the number of uses of very strong language had been reduced and it was classified 15.
The BBFC further commented in its 2015 Annual Report:
When originally shown to the BBFC for advice, the film contained fourteen uses of very strong language, some of which were aggravated by aggression or violence. The
BBFC's Guidelines at 15 state Very strong language may be permitted, depending on the manner in which it is used, who is using the language, its frequency within the work as a whole and any special contextual justification'. This means that it is
unusual to permit more than a handful of uses of very strong language in a submission of normal feature length at 15.
In order to achieve its preferred 15 rating, the BBFC advised the distributor to reduce the number of uses of
very strong language, in particular addressing the more aggravated uses.
When the film was submitted for formal classification, the number of uses were approximately halved and the uses accompanied by violence or other aggravating
factors, including one use directed towards a child, were no longer present. The remaining uses, which are mainly self-directed within the central character's head, were acceptable at 15 in this particular context.

Summary Review: Monster Movie
A team of scientists travel to Tibet to track down the Yeti. Among the group is Waldemar (Naschy) who falls in with some vampire handmaidens
and somehow gets turned into a werewolf.
The film turns out to be a low budget monster movie with just a couple of decent performances keeping it from total inanity. There's hardly any horror, and there's a few hints that
maybe it was once intended to be a sexy horror...but isn't. The evil Tibetan chieftain and his wicked witch are better than the 'monsters'.

La lupa mannara is a 1976 Italy horror by Rino Di Silvestro (as RD Silver). Starring Annik Borel, Howard Ross and Dagmar Lassander.
Cut by the BBFC for cinema and VHS. Uncut in Europe and the US
From notorious Italian exploitation filmmaker Rino Di Silvestro (Deported Women of the SS Special Section) comes Werewolf Woman, a psychological, psychosexual, pseudo-shapeshiter shocker and a favorite of director
Quentin Tarantino. In it, a mentally unstable young woman named Daniela (Annik Borel) fantasizes that she is the reincarnation of her long-dead ancestor, a woman who was thought to have been a werewolf. Dealing with her lifetime of sexual abuse, she
seduces men before transgressing into a feral monster, screaming, cursing and ripping them to shreds. When she meets the man of her dreams, Daniela seems ready to forgive her past and bury the beast within until another traumatic encounter seals both her
own fate and the collective fates of the Werewolf Woman's wild wrath. A strange, erotic, outrageously sleazy and provocative Eurohorror classic about a woman pushed well-past the edge of sanity, Werewolf Woman is finally presented here with the respect
it deserves, in beautifully realized, remastered high-definition. Watch it with someone you trust.
Selected by Quentin Tarantino for the First Quentin Tarantino Film Fest in Austin, Texas, 1996. He loved it so much that all
subsequent Quentin Tarantino Film Fests had a surprise movie added to the end of each all-nighter known as the Wolf Woman selection, defined as an outrageous exploitation film sure to wake the audience up.
exploitive Italian gem features a luscious blonde lead experiencing lycanthropic spasms flagrante delicto, making a bloody mess of the men she naturally attracts until she finds true love in the arms of a gentle beefcake stuntman. Sleazy fun; even the

The BBFC required cuts for the X rated 1963 cinema release. There is also evidence of an International Version.

The video was passed 18 in 2015 with previous cuts relating to stabbings to women's crotches waived. The original film submission in 1973
failed to receive a certificate, after which it was cut for video release in 1995. The dated nature of the film and the relative lack of detail in the most challenging scenes enabled the film to be passed without intervention.

2019 Warner Bros Signature Film Collection R0 Blu-ray at UK Amazon
Michael Moore is non to impressed by the MPAA R rating given to his
latest documentary. Moore spoke of the R rating to Variety:
Moore listed the parts of the film that prompted the MPAA's ruling. The violence in the picture includes footage of law enforcement officers beating Eric Garner,
a Staten Island man whose death last year helped spark a wider debate about police brutality.
The drug use is related to a section in the film on Portugal's decision to decriminalize narcotics -- a move that some suggest has led
to a reduction in substance abuse.
The language stems from the use of 'fuck' by Icelandic citizens protesting the 2009 collapse of their banks.
And the nudity is a fleeting image of a naked man.
That's from a vignette that shows how some Europeans are able to enjoy three weeks at a spa to treat stress thanks to government-backed healthcare.
Moore said he will not edit the film, and has appealed to have the rating lowered to a
The appeal was rejected in December 2015 and the R rating stands.
However not everyone agrees with the MPAA R rating. Cinema chain Alamo Drafthouse, with cinemas in 13 states, decided to relax its R-rating policy for the
film in February 2016. CEO Tim League said in a statement that the company can't believe the film was ever rated R in the first place:
For the first time ever, we are relaxing our 18-and-up age policy for one film. Why? We
simply don't believe Where to Invade Next should have received an R rating from the MPAA. We don't want that rating and our own age policies to get in the way of teens and their parents seeing this film. So, for the run of the Where to Invade Next we
will allow teens age 15 and up on their own...yes, it's that important.
And for comparison, in the UK, the BBFC passed the film 15 uncut for strong language, violence, drug references
White Comanche is a 1968 Spain western drama by José Briz Méndez (as Gilbert Lee Kay). Starring Joseph Cotten, William Shatner and Rosanna Yanni.

William Shatner plays two roles: cowboy Johnny Moon and his ruthless Indian twin brother, Notah. Notah likes peyote and gets the crazy idea that he's the
Comanche messiah sent to lead the Comanche nation against the white man but more specifically the dusty desert town of Rio Hondo. Moon, estranged from his brother, decides to stop Notah either by words or by bullets.
Few countries can compete with the UK when it comes to television costume dramas . . . but American audiences, it seems, prefer
our dramas without the costumes.
A raunchy alternative version of the ten-part BBC1 series The White Queen has been created for screening in the US -- including graphic sex and nude scenes which don't appear here.
Bedroom scenes in which actors appear in the BBC version partly clothed are sexed-up for the American market -- and the actors complete the scenes naked.
As lead actor Max Irons put it: There's the BBC cut
and the Starz cut. You get a lot more arse in the Starz version -- the cameras kept rolling after the BBC stopped the scene.
Eg, in episode two Queen Elizabeth, played by Rebecca Fergusson, was seen wearing a nightdress for
her love scene with Edward IV, played by Max Irons. But when the clinch is broadcast on American television later this summer, the same actress will be shown first topless and then completely naked in the marital bed.
one, two and three of the American version all contain nudity and the first programme includes at least four shots of the Queen's breasts and a scene showing her younger sister topless in a bath. By contrast, the BBC version doesn't include any nudity
until episode three, and even then only fleetingly.

From IMDb. The following animator jokes were deleted from DVD releases and beyond:
Originally when Baby Herman storms off the set and puts his hand up a woman's dress, the middle finger of his hand is clearly extended.
The original film had a gag frame of Betty Boop where her dress was drawn too low in the front, revealing her nipples.
When Jessica Rabbit and Eddie are thrown out of the cab there are a few frames where
Jessica's underwear is visible, but the coloring is sometimes close to that of her legs, so that it has been mistakenly assumed that she is not wearing any underwear. This was first altered so that she is more clearly wearing white panties. It was then
altered again, so that now, her dress covers her entirely.

UK censor James Ferman requested cuts for the UK cinema version to the infamous horse-whip fight between Faye Dunaway and Marina Sirtis claiming that shots of whipped breasts should not be passed by the BBFC.
However he was overruled following protests by Michael Winner who was supported by Kingsley Amis, Karel Reisz, and Fay Weldon (among others) after they viewed a private showing of the film.
Fay Weldon later claimed
that she had been duped into supporting Winner. She claimed that the 'uncut' version that she supported after a private viewing was in fact a cut version.
The film was passed uncut for cinema but the offending whip fight was cut for
the subsequent video release.

1974 Sweden sex comedy by Gustav Wiklund. With Kent-Arne Dahlgren, Solveig Andersson and Gunilla
Passed 18 uncut for:
2009 Revelation R2 DVD titled Swedish Erotica Collection 2 at UK Amazon
The BBFC noted in the 2009 Annual Report:
Collection 2, Swedish Erotica, a compilation of three early 1970s films from Sweden (Wide Open, Love Play and More About the Language of Love) was passed 18 without cuts. The
work, which includes explicit images of sexual activity, is now very dated. By contemporary standards it is clearly not a sex work, but rather a genuine attempt to inform and educate, and the Board concluded that there was sufficient contextual
justification to allow these scenes at 18 .
Fans of 70's Swedish sex kitten Christina Lindberg may wish to check out this film which is billed as Ms Lindberg's last movie appearance.
Wide Open is actually not all that great a flick, nor does one get as much of Christina as might be wished for, and is implied by her prominent appearance on the box cover art! Lindberg had just returned from making big bucks on a Japanese movie
deal and her, newly, inflated fees only allowed Wicklund to hire her for two days of shooting... thus her presence in Wide Open is relatively minimal. Still her time on screen is used to good advantage as she is pretty much gloriously naked throughout in
scenes as diverse as a porno photo shoot to nude vacuum cleaning in her boyfriend's apartment.
The overall filmic experience of Wide Open is pretty uneven. The director was apparently attempting to create a blend of
sexiness and criminal intrigue with a light comedic overtone. From my perspective he didn't do a very good job of merging the genres.
If you are a die hard fan of Lindberg, Wide Open may be worth a look.

Exists in several versions.
In this darkly karmic vision of Arizona, a man who breathes nothing
but ill will begins a noxious domino effect as quickly as an uncontrollable virus kills. As he exits Arizona State Penn after twenty-one long years, Wilson has only one thing on the brain, leveling the score with career criminal, Mackey Willis. As
eccentric and intuitive as he is vicious, Mackey's own perfected criminal game will play right into the path Wilson has set for him. With the help of a prison bus driver, Lee Marvin, Wilson acts as a catalyst, putting a plan into action that will bring
an untimely end to Mackey Willis. The problem is, no plan is perfect. Meanwhile, an aimless bunch of Arizona twenty-nothings are cooking up a heist that will lead them to the same bank, with different intentions. Skilled at nothing beyond drinking, doing
drugs and attending strip clubs, their plan is destined for immediate failure. Heavily armed, without a single identifiable clue, these boys are as blind as they are impulsive...
All versions pre-cut by the distributor as described by the BBFC in 2006
The distributor had requested it be considered for a '15' when sent in for an advice viewing. However, with four uses of 'cunt', two of which were aggressive and in one case linked to a man head butting a woman, the language in
the film was considered too strong for '15'.
The distributor chose to reduce the very strong language in the film's final edit, leaving a single use of 'cunt' said in frustration, which could be accommodated at the '15'
already required by the other violence, gore and strong language in the work.

From IMDb. Even after making cuts, the BBFC felt it necessary to screen a cut version in front of a test audience of children and parents to check if enough had been removed. And in fact this resulted in further cuts to the wild boar attack on the
midwife. The BBFC cuts were:
Cut scene where the nurse is attacked by the dog/boar after she puts the baby basket into the river
Willow zaps the troll with his wand, and 2 creatures emerge from its skin. In the cut version, the bit where the creatures quickly rip the
skin off of the troll is missing.
A scene with Bavmorda using magic to transform soldiers attempting to siege a castle into pigs. The transformation details are cut along with screams of agony and pig squeals.
Reduced violence in the
fight between Airk and Kael by removing shot of Airk jerking back as he is stabbed in abdomen; reducing some of the redness of blood on Airk's face;
Deleted violence in climatic fights including the second sword thrust into General Kael when
Madmartigan steps on the sword and drives it through him. The cut version only shows Madmartigan step on the sword, then cuts to Kael falling.
Cut scene during the battle between Bavmorda and Fin Raziel which actually showed where the scratches
on Fin's face came from.
The BBFC also advised that the soundtrack be softened to reduce the intensity of fight scenes.

Exists as a Theatrical Version and a Director's Cut.
During World War II when the Americans needed to find a secure method of communicating they
devised a code using the Navajo language. So Navajos were recruited to become what they call code talkers. They would be assigned to a unit and would communicate with other units using the code so that even though the enemy could listen they couldn't
understand what they were saying. And to insure that the code is protected men are assigned to protect it at all costs. One of these men is Joe Enders, a man who sustained an injury that can make him unfit for duty but he manages to avoid it and is told
of his duty and that the man he is suppose to protect is Ben Yahzee. Initially there is tension but the two men learn to get along.
An extended directors cut is available on DVD and features about 22 minutes of new footage. This includes several extended battle scenes as well as a few fully deleted scenes including an early scene of Joe
receiving a medal for his work at the start of the film. There are also several new scenes near the start as well including a scene of Joe and Rita on the beach. This scene was included in the trailer for the film. Also a scene of all the marines taking
pictures before shipping off to war. Also an extended scene of Yazee introducing himself to Joe and joe asks if he has seen any combat to which yazee replies No, but i'm looking forward to getting into some. There were also several other smaller
additions and alternate angles and shots used.

The UK version had a 30 second rape scene cut to bring it down to a PG certificate.
A BBFC examiners explained:
Wings of Honneamise was cut in one place. It was a wholly gratuitous sexual assault in the middle of a film which was otherwise a wonderful experience for younger viewers. But, and this is important as other distributors
often do the same, it was voluntarily cut by Manga Video to lower the certificate from its cinema classification of 15 to a PG for the video release. When this happens, it is not registered as a cut.
Winter Kills is a 1979 USA comedy mystery thriller by William Richert. Starring Jeff Bridges, John Huston and Anthony Perkins.
Originally released in 1979. This is often referred to as a cut or UK
version. The film was re-cut in 1983 by the director's company. There is also a cut TV version.
The consensus of opinions is that the original version was 97m and the re-issue was 91m. However the original UK cinema release matches the 91m version and
so seems to contradict the consensus. Maybe there are 3 versions.

Director John R. Leonetti ( Annabelle ) said early on that
his movie was initially much gorier and received the MPAA's "R" rating in the first round. He also said that he considers this "Unrated Director's Cut" to be the better version of his film.
There's a lot more censored than the
mere runtime difference of just one minute would suggest. That is due to the usage of alternate material and CGI blood censorship.
The Witch who Came from the Sea is a 1976 US horror by Matt Cimber.
With Millie Perkins, Lonny Chapman and Vanessa Brown.
Always uncut but briefly banned as a video nasty in 1984. Passed 18 uncut
for 2006 DVD. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US.
Summary Review: Odd little gem
A sensationalist cover got this video into trouble "A young woman's nightmare of incest and
castration... Molly has a way with razors!" The actual castration scene of course is well toned down.
Here is an odd little gem of a film that fortunately has resurfaced on DVD, boasting a pristine film transfer.
Descriptions of the film, the title of the film, and even the DVD cover itself do little to relate, or even hint at what is, as it turns out, an altogether strange, unsettling, humorous, and entertaining cinematic treat.
kilter acting styles, unnatural tone, and dark humor of the film shares a kinship to the works of David Lynch. Highly recommended.

Cut by the BBFC for 1989 VHS and pre-cut for 2002 DVD. Uncut and MPAA R
rated in the US. Revieiews suggest that the UK 2020 Blu-ray is uncut but there is not a BBFC database entry to suppport this.
Summary Review: Dismal
When a storm strands a group on a Massachusetts
island where the only dwelling is an old hotel supposedly haunted by the ghost of a former German actress (Knef), the result is the standard horror film as each of the cast is picked off one-by-one.
In the review guidelines
it says not to write one word reviews, but you could about this film, and that would be DISMAL.
So many basic and obvious techniques are used, like: Wind blowing at scary moments, or crackling thunder storms. It is also a
horribly predictable storyline, and I would confidently say that a Scooby Doo show contains more mystery and suspense.
Witchcraft is a 1964 UK horror romance by Don Sharp. Starring Lon Chaney Jr, Jack Hedley and Jill Dixon.

UK: Passed 12 uncut for moderate violence, threat for:
Many British film from this period that were cut by the BBFC have ended up with the cut version becoming the only version available. Maybe the existence of a US version with a running time 1 minute longer than the UK version suggests that an
uncut version may have been sent to the US and hence was available for this release.
The Witches is a 1990 UK / USA family horror fantasy by Nicolas Roeg. Starring Anjelica Huston, Mai Zetterling and Jasen Fisher.
Cut by the BBFC for a PG rating. There is an uncut European version. Uncut in the US but with an alternative happy ending
A young boy, recently orphaned, is taken to
England by his grandmother. At a hotel in which they are staying, a group of witches have gathered to prepare a plot to rid the world of all children.
This is the kind of movie you can watch over and over, and each time
you'll find something new to laugh at. Trying to mimic the hilariously delivered lines in the film, has yet to lose it's novelty.
The film certainly does do justice to the classic Roald Dahl novel about the adventures of
Luke, a young boy staying at an English seaside hotel which happens to be inhabited by the entire population of English child-hating witches and their supreme leader, the grand high witch, who are all under the guise of nice charitable ladies.

he travels from city to city and wrenches confessions from "witches" in order to line his pockets and gain sexual favors.
