Censorship and Horror

When you have a genre such as horror, some films are bound to cause offence to someone, somewhere. A look at the eternal fight between the film and the censor.

Censoring The Evil Dead star
One of the most famous and notorious horror movies, and one which led a difficult life at the hands of the censorship board. Read the story on why the film was banned, and find the best version to own here.

Censorship and Horror star
When a horror film pushes the boundaries of taste and decency by visually increasing violence, gore and offence, it will invariably become a victim of a censorship board somewhere in the world. How did this come to be though, and why?

DVD Compare star[offsite link]
An excellent website dedicated to comparing the different DVD releases of a single title to establish which is best. Great for feature lists, sound options and cuts.

Has society become de-sensitised to horror? star
Article asking if apathy or de-sensitising has to do with the re-release of previously banned horror movies; goes in depth into the film ´I Spit On Your Grave.´

Horror movies and Splatter movies star
What is the difference between genuine horror movies and splatter movies? If horror is used to scare and haunt, why are we seeing more and more torture porn from Hollywood, what audience does it serve, and what is it's message?

Splatter movie horror star
A look at how ´Splatter movies´ are becoming more and more common in mainstream horror, with their depictions of torture, mutilation and sadism, do they have a rightful place in the genre, or are they going too far?

The Original Video Nasty Banned List star
The full list of ´video nasties´ and the 39 movies that were prosecuted and banned in the UK.
