I agree that a line has to be drawn and we have laws in place for that purpose. I haven't watched the 'animal free' version of Holocaust, but I think I will at some point. I mostly bought the Grindhouse disc for the extras, which were worth the price alone.

I just think (as do most of us) that a cat eating a mouse, something it naturally does, is not the place to draw that line.

Those squish videos are repulsive; they sound, disgustingly, somewhat pornographic in a horrid sense! :eek:

Cannibal Holocaust was a fictional work with a functioning narative; and clumsy decision making during production resulted in questionable and unfogivable footage being produced.

I can't see how they can be compared. They are radically different types of film. I'd bracket squish as snuff footage!

Blah.

If you care about something alive being killed for entertainment only..then yes. Cry a bleeding tear fro all those cockroaches and burn you "Creepshow" DVD's.
Or you "Oldboy"...poncy artistic credibility or not.

Stages of evolution has nothing to do with it. Try to stamp on a roach and it will try to get away...survival instinct.
So if you have a problem with kill any animal for fun, bleed your heart over Romero and many others as well.

But this is all garbage any way (concerning old films) because:

1) Acts have already been committed. You are not changing anything removing them..

2) IF you have a moral problem with the killing of animals for entertainment. DON'T WATCH/SUPPORT THE FILM AT ALL! Censored or not!
Anyone on here who moans about that damn lousy mouse but buys the cut "Inferno" anyway....is a hypocrite. So who care what they think.

Libretio has purely joined to post on this thread only and tomfly the PETA flag and tut tut at beastly fellows.
Well they don't have to buy/support ANY DVD where a fluffy cute critter is snuffed if they do not want.
So they are happy.
So be happy and leave the rest of us to wallow in our barbarity.

And at the end of the day...it's a damn cat eating a damn mouse! Priorities!

There is no Snake and monkey scene in Ferox.

I don't think it is hypocrisy to be against animal cruelty and buy a copy of Inferno. I'm not a fan of the KKK, but I own a copy of Birth of a Nation and have watched it a couple of times (both for a university degree) in order to appreciate DW Griffith's filmmaking. Just because you don't like something that may have happened while a film was being made, doesn't stop you from buying it and appreciating the director's skill.

No doubt I can see this is something that botherd you but I am going to call on Almar to step in and ask you to start being a bit more respectful of other people's views. We're all on here out of a love of movies and we are all, I think, in agreement that Inferno's cat-mouse scene should remain intact.

Again: let's make this a civil thread.

Thanks.

Phrases such as:

"Anyone on here who moans about that damn lousy mouse but buys the cut "Inferno" anyway....is a hypocrite. So who care what they think.

Libretio has purely joined to post on this thread only and tomfly the PETA flag and tut tut at beastly fellows."

are purely inflammatory and this has turned into a very mean-spirited, ill-tempered thread. I'm closing it down - I may re-open it when the BBFC verdict comes through but until that happens I will have to ask people to discuss this potential cut to the film elsewhere on the web and not on Cult Labs.
