Said it before, unless itís something that requires by law to be cut, it seems to depend what side of bed the examiners get out of on a particular day as to what they want to cut or leave in.

Well move their bed against a wall then they can only get out one side hopefully the correct one

They move their goal posts so much that it's impossible to predict what they will cut.

From the BBFC website.

Quote:
Perhaps because of the film's toxic reputation, it did not return to the BBFC until 2001, after James Ferman had retired. In a rather less heated atmosphere, and with new published classification guidelines based on public consultation, the film was classified 18, after 22 seconds of cuts to material involving the mutilation of a woman's breasts. In 2012, focus groups participating in BBFC research into audience reactions to sexual and sadistic violence watched the cut material. They concluded that the film and its effects appeared dated and it was not particularly shocking compared to modern films. The film has not been sent back for reclassification since that time.
Basically to me this says if someone resubmitted the film it would pass uncut.

Wonder how that would fare nowadays.

Well since there is even less FX in ISOYG, no doubt it would pass. They passed that godawful overkillfest that was the remake didn't they? Or was that trimmed?
Time and technology march on.
So obviously 36 year old prosthetics won't have the same impact as todays seamless computerised envisceration.
That's what I had against all that Saw/Hostel palaver. People flocking to see others get tortured. Whilst I spent a large part of my time defending my right to watch Daniela Dora get ... tortured (hmmm), apparently this made me odd. Not as fricking 'odd' as the civilians who clamoured to show me real deaths on their phones . That's 'normal' but watching a STORY ala Ichi or whatever made me weird. Morality. Your flexible friend

Didn't rate the remake at all, and i think that was cut slightly as well. Pretty sure they cut the second one too.

Can't say i enjoy any of the modern torture porn either. I love horror and weirdness, but watching murder and torture just for the sake of it doesn't interest me at all.
That's why i like all the old classics from the 70's and 80's that had horror but style as well, combined with fantastic soundtracks too.

TBH I just like odd films. Sometimes it only seems to be me that sees this mind . I digress. I can only imagine the kinds of films that Greasy Strangler devotees will give us . Too soon??
