The violence is possibly why so many people are surprised its got through the BBC uncut. It has an unpleasant rape scene, the face burning scene and lots of exploding guts. It isn't really that nasty or shocking by today's standards, its certainly not New York Ripper leaves of nastiness.

There's a fairly nasty rape scene that is very unpleasant and I also thought the BBFC might find it troubling. Since they didn't, then it's high time someone resubmitted Tombs of the Blind Dead which has a fumble masquerading as a rape and, in light of Contraband, should fly through the BBFC now! Or maybe they only have an issue when the sexual violence is in a horror film?

I never understood why the rape scene in Blind Dead was such a problem, it's not the most graphic by a long shot and considering some of the arty films that have got passed for much worse depictions it's probably about time for a re-release.

Are you saying Blind Dead isn't arty?

The rape scene is one of the most extreme in any movies outside of Irreversible and New York Ripper.

And given House on the Edge of the Park was cut to shreds I assumed the same for this.

Ladies and gentlemen, Shameless fans from all over, it's time to announce the reverse artwork for Contraband!



What do you think? Which artwork will you be showing off? The front or this reverse?

Always one for the original art, Stephen! It does look very, very cool but SJ's just pushed in front for me.
