It was a list of 74 which was finally wittled down to 39. The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas and Apocalypse Now were also confiscated at one time by the police (who obviously had limited film knowledge).

They were confiscated but never on the list whereas "Big Red One" actually was listed as was "Cains Cutthroats".

"Cain's Cutthroats appeared briefly on the listing of banned and suspect titels in theVTA (Video Trade Press), a fact which has largely been forgotten by collectors and genre historians, possibly due to the film being a western as oppossed to a horror picture"

- "See No Evil" - Kerekes and Slater (Headpress)

this Danish guy mentions it also, although he quotes the above book as well

"Some films which for some reason had fallen into the media spotlight, was known as' Video Nasties' whether they had figured on the DPPs list - which incidentally long had the weakness that it included both the film as successful had been prosecuted and movies are awaiting prosecution. Local authorities, who understandably were perplexed by this lack of information, used not only the official lists during their raids, but judged free press guidelines inspired by what they saw as being necessary to seize. DPPs list included (depending on the source Monday consults) up to 76 titles (See No Evil, p. 67) which at one time or another had come to turn on the list, but only 39 of these were successfully prosecuted in order ban.
