Ok list, though I'd replace a few with Scorsese's LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST and Alan Clarke's SCUM. The former banned (later a video nasty) in the UK, and the later caused quite stir with the Catholics.

Aren't all Grace Kelly movies banned in Monaco? At least that's why I heard somewhere.

I loathe this kind of censorship. No government should be able to tell it's citizens what films they can and cannot watch.

Ok, maybe kiddie porn.

The UK and Europe do seem uptight about violence. Of course, the US is afraid of sex. We love our violence, though. We ain't no fags.

I've said that I like violence and sex in movies. I want both. I want sexy violence and violent sex.

It's interesting that there are photos freely available of a young man having his brain literally splattered over a road after one of Mubarak's armoured vehicles crushed his skull, and yet there's prudishness over fake dry-humping and red goo in movies.

Because it makes kids kill eachother n stuf.



What the fuck is wrong with the UK? Does Germany cut out violence, too? I can at least get that, given that they tried and failed to take over the world and may be experiencing cultural guilt. But the UK?

This post would probably get me arrested in Germany.

PATHS OF GLORY
banned in France till 1971 or so. Wonder why ...

MISSING
banned from a screening at the White House by Ronnie Raygun. Again, got to wonder why ... probably thought it would've gotten a 'chile' press reception.

All post-ANIMALHOUSE John Landis movies
banned from my household forever.

Interesting little fact. Though it makes sense that one of the first honest portrayals of the horrors of war would be banned in Nazi Germany.

Though HItler wasn't elected Chancellor until 1933.

True, though it shouldn't come as a surprise that it showed a reality that someone like Hindenburg might have found as objectionable as Hitler.

Yes, but he joined the Nazi Party in 1922, and the earliest concentration camp dates back to the early 1930s. I think it may have been 1931. I suppose if the Germans and Austrians saw what was in that film (though I'm not sure if the camps are in the film - I haven't seen it), I'm sure the Nazi Party would have lost a lot of votes, as his ideologies hadn't be properly established and stabilised as yet.

The earliest concentration camps date back to mid-nineteenth century Cuba, where they were used by the Spanish. And I really don't know what you mean with that post, to be honest. The Nazi party weren't really in a position to do much until Hitler was appointed (not elected) Chancellor in 1933 and the Reichstag fell to arson.

I meant the earliest Nazi concentration camps. But had the Germans seen what was happening in the film (before Hitler's ideologies had become more public), they wouldn't have voted for him in 1933.

Zombie Flesh Eaters, Zombie Holocaust, and Contamination.

The make up effects in Zombie Flesh Eaters still look good, and the zombie/shark fight is still excellent!

And - yeah - Ian McCulloch - I still would ❤

ANIMAL HOUSE and KENTUCKY FRIED are the only ones that made me laugh. BLUES BROS was something I objected to and skipped on the basis that nobody should spend 30mil on a comedy back then. Since the TZ tragedy, I wouldn't even have accepted my 'big break' if it had to come from Landis or Frank Marshall, who should have spent the last couple and half decades recreating Marcellus Wallace's worst afternoon over and over again.

Caligula has been shown here several times. Not often but at least three times in the past 20 years... Maybe the movie houses didn't know about the ban.

Salo and Scum are revolting. But I don't know why we'd want to ban any movie. Restrictions are fine... banning is dumb.

Has the new ISOYG (2010) been banned anywhere? I have 2 copies circulating around at the office.

ANIMAL HOUSE and KENTUCKY FRIED.

AMERICAN WEARWOLF IN LONDON is the only one that does it for me. Perfect balance of comedy, sex, gore and genuine sentiment.

SALO yeah, but SCUM? The rape was the only bit that made me uncomfortable.
