This is the cover you're thinking about.

Yep that is the one, wonder why it didn't get released?

Other than obtaining rights, I wonder why one of The Boutique Labels haven't released it on Blu-Ray. Other than Gestapo's Last Orgy (And we know that one isn't going to be UK released any time soon) this I would say is the most famous Video Nasty out there that hasn't received a UK release.

I've heard that it's not good but if Cannibal Terror can get a Blu-Ray...

It a load of rubbish and boring, didn't do well when original released and got bad reviews, hence why they did what they did re releasing it again under a new name and alternative ending years later, don't think it's had a uk release, but blue underground have gave it a blu ray release.

According to DVD rewind BBFC have allowed it to be uncut just no uk company released it

It should be noted that the BBFC has passed this uncut in the UK but no news about the actual release.

I remember on that Video Nasties DVD from Nucleus Films that one of the Reviewers said that a documentary about the film and controversies would be better than the film.

A loaded release with quality extra features would go down well I assume

Interviews and commentaries with the cast and crew.

I dunno. Kind of misses the point of a so called snuff movie to me.

Classic case of That's Exploitation though, if not the template ahem. How to make a profit out of trash.
