18.03.08 - BBFC cuts waived to Last House on the Left
The once banned video nasty has now been passed uncut, and about time I say.
Last House on the Left is a seminal 1972 US horror film by Wes Craven.
The BBFC have now waived their cuts when the DVD was submitted in 2008 by Second Sight Films.
Previously Blue Underground released the video after 31s of BBFC cuts in 2002. Further video releases from Anchor Bay followed in 2003 that have been edited differently but have retained the BBFC mandated cuts
The BBFC justified their cuts as follows:
"Cuts required to humiliation of woman forced to urinate, violent stabbing assault on woman and removal of her entrails, and woman's chest carved with a knife."
An appeal against the cuts proved unsuccessful.
Interestingly the UK Anchor Bay release includes a DVD extra showing the deleted footage as a series of stills. (BBFC censorship only applies to video material).
The video was previously banned by the BBFC in 2001 and was twice rejected for a cinema release in 1974 & 2000.
It was released on video in the early 80s but was promptly banned as a video nasty
