Sorry, I thought you ment that the UK VRA was applicable to Ireland.
You are right, there is a VRA for the South but it's not the same Act that applies to UK DVD. In what way it differs, I honestly dont know.

That was a really good link Vince for film ratings .

The way some country's have a special classification to allow for violent films, or have a ' not rated ' option, which when looked at is near enough a classification as you would know what to expect from a film marked 'NR', is a really good idea and would certainly satisfy UK film fans.
I take it that even if a special classification for violent films were to be implemented in the UK, a lot of films submitted for consideration would still not qualify under the OPA.?

Zombie Flesh Eaters , although eventually passed 'uncut' for ABUK's Box of the Banned , has yet to be released as a single film in uncut form. the Stonevision DVD and VIPCO VHS Extreme release's are still the only single release's of this film and there cut.
Does anyone know if the uncut status only applies for the box set , or is any rights holder free to release this classic fully uncut on its own.?
Im just very surprised a film of this status hasn't been given a uncut release on its own yet.

The uncut status wouldn't just apply for the box set.

Cheers Kevin.

Just with the only single UK disc's available for ZFE being trimmed and average at best , I thought there was some reason preventing someone releasing it fully uncut as a standalone disc.

Anchor Bay probably weren't interested in releasing it on it's own, there were other films in those sets that didn't get their own release. I don't know how long Anchor Bay's rights last but I'm sure someone will pick the title up for release if it becomes available.

As it's been released umpteen times,yeah,ABUK probably thought that a single release wouldn't warrant enough sales.....

Well that was a great shame as it was being released uncut for the first time.

That would be for extreme sexual violence as the BBFC no longer cut non sexual violence.

Yes they would still be cut. Even so the BBFC are quite lenient towards scenes of sexual violence these days compared to what they used to be.
