Requiem uncut? Wow, that's amazing. Didn't think they would do it. In fact I might have to ask them exactly how it could be passed uncut. This should be interesting.

Yes 7m to remove a huge amount of sexual violence.

I'd like to see the BBFC response to Requiem too, Angel. I'm surprised about this too.

Don't Go In The Woods and The Funhouse. The DVD of the former is only 18 rated due to the extras. Pranks and Blood Feast will definitely be downgraded next time around.

Nice to see you on the site again, Vince.

Yes I re-watched the uncut Requiem and it does come across as being a rather astonishing decision by the BBFC. I will wait to see confirmation on their site before emailing them. One things for sure they will have to pass Tombs of the Blind Dead now and... a few others.

Nice to be back on, Angel.

Hopefully Redemption will actually submit Requiem to the BBFC. Their release of Night Of The Bloody Apes was uncut but was never officially submitted or listed.

The last time the BBFC saw Bloody Apes was the heavily edited Film 2000 DVD. It hasn't been submitted to them since.

EIV's uncut Flesh Gordon also has yet to be submitted.

A 15 seems about right to me too.

What about The Howling, Angel? Personally I would keep the 18 rating on that one.

The one very strong scene of sexual violence will keep the film an 18 forever.

How about Wolfen?

I would give Wolfen a 15. A lot of the graphic stuff is fairly dark and the decapitation isn't much worse than American Werewolf.

How about Company Of Wolves?

I reckon Company of Wolves would be downgraded to a 15.
