12. The Rabbit Is Me (1965) Banned in GDR (East Germany) due to being critical of the government and legal system

The opening here is perfectly Kafkaesque with a sudden trial, mysterious crime and bureaucratic roadblocks as a young woman's brother is arrested and jailed for crimes that are never revealed. The vast majority of the movie is slowly paced though as she takes to romancing the judge involved (to try to get him to overturn his verdict?). There is a strong bit involving the judge's wife that gives way to the title, but the Kafkaesque vibe never returns.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
SpoilerShow
After a lovemaking session, the judge admits to the sister that he was too harsh on the brother and gave him an excessive sentence since he was afraid of what would happen to him were he to look sympathetic towards traitors to the country.

Malaysia - you need to look at films banned in Malaysia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_f ... n_Malaysia

Human Centipede III is there... :turned:
Thx!!!!


3. Tim Dirks' Most Controversial Films of All-Time (2015)

@flavo5000: That seems to be the common verdict - but I find the second part the worst. In III, Laser's constant overacting has some magnetic charm to me, I could watch this guy for a long time (but in better movies). It has Eric Robers in it, a decent actor. It didn't have horrible scenes with pregnant women and it lacked shitty and vacant psychological explanations (protagonist is abused by his mother). And I was able to relate to it on a personal level, because during 2018 I also had a (ileo)stomy like the one prisoner who got shot because of that (as he couldn't get chained into the centipede). :facepalm: :D Of course there was no sense in making the movie. I'm just happy his upcoming Onania Club movie won't be an official so I won't be tempted to watch it. All in all a solid 1.5/10

Yea, I mean, I didn't think part 3 was as gross as part 2. It just seemed far more stupid, like some kind of horrible alternate reality Laurel & Hardy movie between the Warden and his sidekick. The centipede seemed to be secondary to this relentlessly unfunny routine.

Also I'm assuming you mean to put Human Centipede III instead of the Tim Dirk list as your #3. ;)
Rofl, yeah, that's true, it was ridiculously stupid. As one critic wrote, I've you've seen one human centipede, you've seen them all, no matter if they have 3, 12 or 500 members. Six may have become aware of this and stuffed it with random shit.
ah, lol, yes, thx, need to change title of #3.

13. The Love Butcher (1975) Video Nasty; banned in the UK... due to violent images (maybe; most of the blows occur off-screen)

Image

Playing an introvert with a serial killer split personality who adopts various hairstyles, accents and mannerisms, Erik Stern is truly electric and needs to be seen to be believed. He is also empathetic when conversing with himself (represented by a wig and cloak on a pole; see above). The overall film though is not as good as Stern is. An incompetent police detective and reporter come off as pathetic and rather than funny or amusing.

34. Diabel (1972)
Where? Poland
Why? Banned due to its anti-war sentiments, which are buried in this insane fever dream of a movie. I have to wonder if they banned in more while in a state of delirium induced by this film and used the politics as a vague reasoning why they felt compelled to get rid of it.
Oh, rock & roll, this one was already on my list for the month, but I didn't realize it was banned until now. I have one other crossover (so far) with EE lined up this month, so this makes a pear, er... pair. ;)

36. Vase de noces (1975)
Where? New Zealand only surprisingly...
Why? I can't imagine why honestly. It's the time-honored tale... Boy meets pig. Boy fucks pig. Pig has babies. Boy lynches piglets. Boy crucifies pig. Boy eats shit. Pretty straightforward. Why knows?

Image
37. Final Exam (1981)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Pretty standard slasher far. Actually pretty light on gore considering but I guess the BBFC was just covering their bases. As far as the quality of it, this is a bit of an oddball among slashers. The movie spends a LOT of time on character development compared to a lot of them with no resolution into the identity of the killer. It's really just some random crazy guy.

38. Il paese del sesso selvaggio (1972) a.k.a. Sacrifice! a.k.a. Man from Deep River
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: More jungle escapades...Looks like the animal cruelty is primary what the BBFC had a problem with on this one. And it really isn't as gory as, say, Deodato's flicks.

Image
39. Parasite (1982)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Unless you are terrified of Demi Moore's stilted acting in her first big screen role, there's really not much to be offended by here. I can only assume it ended up a nasty for a couple of scenes of the goopy parasite bursting out of faces and chests.

Image
40. Anna and the King (1999)
Where? Thailand
Why? "Banned because could be construed as disrespectful towards the King of Thailand" which is weird to me. If anything it portrays the king as more forward thinking and humanistic. But what do I know?

14. Fight for Your Life (1977) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to violence

Image

As character with a sick sense of humour (prepared to shoot a baby), William Sanderson makes for an energetic antagonist here and Lela Small (the grandmother) is very feisty as the only person brave enough to backchat him. The overall film feels like little more than a catalogue of nasty incidents such as violent deaths, racial humiliation and bad-taste gags (a bible basher is bashed with his own bible). Given the final five minutes, this was clearly to be about what drives racism, but with this agenda not clear until the end, the film simply ends up as an unpleasant simple portrait of racial crime.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
Other the baby scene that peeps referenced earlier there is also:Show

Banned in UK, 1983-93.
Reason: Violence
Bonus Challenge: Ban reason (Content: Self-harm and suicide)Show
Image

The violence is teens getting stabbed, and it's mostly mild, but this scene of a hypnotised boy acting on instructions to slit his wrists is an exception, and remains cut from the UK release to this day.
There is a weird atmosphere throughout, but a lot of this was due to the bad script and acting making everything feel off. Other than that the film was boring and had massive annoying plotholes.

5. Showgirls (Verhoeven, 1995)
Banned in Ireland, 1995-2017.
Reason: None given, but presumably the pervasive sleaze.
Bonus Challenge: Ban reason (Content: Rape)Show
Image

The ban wouldn't just have been for this scene, as it could easily have been cut, as it was in the UK release, but it's easily the most extreme part of the movie.
I can definitely see the defences of the film as being a satire on the "Star is Born" Hollywood stories. That comes through in the way the unbelievably tacky nude dancing scenes are treated as aspirational art, and the scenes where Robert Davi's character acts like a repulsive misogynist that are directed to frame him as a kindly paternal figure. That's hilarious. But the "Star is Born" story does not carry through, and becomes a traditional Hollywood morality tale: a girl sells her soul to make it, sees the results and chooses integrity over fame and fortune. I feel that this undermines the satirical intent of the film. Eszterhas's incompetence as a writer is probably responsible, but Verhoeven's striking direction does make this movie entertaining.

1. W.R. – Misterije organizma - W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism (Dusan Makevejev, 1971)

Banned in Yugoslavia due to sexual and political content until 1987 (apparently it was "ideologically harmful"). After Makevejev weighed in on the ban to a West German newspaper, complete with derisive comments about Stalin and the Yugoslavian regime, he was indicted for the "crime" of "derision of the state, its agencies and representatives". He was exiled from Yugoslavia until the Communist regime fell in the late 1980s/early 1990s. This contemporary article provides more information about the ban and Makevejev's comments: https://www.nytimes.com/1973/02/04/arch ... .html?_r=0.

Image

Second viewing. I was worried that I wouldn't find this film so funny when rewatched alone (rather than in a packed theatre) but I enjoyed this more the second time round if anything. Bits and pieces of the movie are quite over-the-top, but the way the film shows the craziness of the dictator's demise is great, with lots of backstabbing, double-crossing and manipulation as all of the power-hungry underlings try come out of the mess clinging to power.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
SpoilerShow
According to the Russian Culture Ministry advisory board:

"The film desecrates our historical symbols -- the Soviet hymn, orders and medals, and Marshal Zhukov is portrayed as an idiot"

16. Night of the Demon (1980) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to graphic violence (and something plot spoilerish)

Image

The narrative structure of this Bigfoot movie is not particularly helpful here - especially given that all of the team's amateur investigations are fairly mundane. The various attacks are well done though with the creature's face obscured; a motorcyclist attack is especially memorable. There is also an attempt to humanise the beast, but then the most intriguing element - what happened between Bigfoot and one young girl - is only a mere subplot.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
SpoilerShow
Bigfoot rips off the manhood of a motorcycle who stopped to relieve himself in the bushes. The entire attack is shown in graphic detail as the confused man staggers away, bleeding from the crotch.

Image

Only one person is actually killed with an axe in this movie. The axe impacts all happen offscreen while blood splashes around the room, but this is the reveal of the final result.
An uninspired home invasion movie. Three criminals force their way into a house where a withdrawn girl with access to sharp implements lives. The violence is infrequent and unconvincing. The marketing attempt to link it to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre probably contributed to it getting the attention of the censors.

Just updated the OP again. For a quick update on runnin' the nasties, we're up to 75 of 152 of them! Just shy of halfway there and it's not even halfway through the month, so that's awesome! This is totally doable.
Correction: We ARE halfway there now! :turned:
Tip of the hat to you, sir. I also take a perverse delight in knowing that it was the Bigfoot dick-ripping movie that brought us there.

41. There Was a Little Girl (1981) a.k.a. Madhouse
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 1: The violence for sure. It's not as graphic as some but still has its fair share of dog attacks stabbings, etc. Overall, it's a decent flick that never quite sets itself apart.

Image
42. The Ghastly Ones (1968)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 1: I really don't know on this one. It's basically Days of Our Lives meets Blood Feast but with much worse acting, work plotting and direction and much, much worse special effects. In essence, a standard Andy Milligan movie.

Image
43. Monanieba (1984) a.k.a. Repentance
Where? Russia
Why? Banned for its thinly-veiled criticism of Stalin.

Image
44. I Miss You, Hugs and Kisses (1978)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 2: Well, amidst this dull courtroom drama lies a couple of moderately graphic death scenes and a rape scene. Overall, it's pretty tame though.

Image
45. Bloodeaters (1980) a.k.a. Toxic Zombies
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 1: Another ultra low budget garbage film with bargain basement effects... it's got some incredibly unrealistic grue on display which is probably what got it banned. Just a really bad movie overall though.

Image
46. Xtro (1982)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasties Section 3: This one earns it's place with some pulsating and suitably gory effects including an extended scene of a woman giving birth to a full grown man after being raped by an alien. This bizarre flick has been hovering just outside the reaches of the TSZDT list. I feel like with a little more attention it could get on there. It's certainly more unique and interesting than some of the dreck on there.

A surprisingly gripping epic that feels condensed (rather than too lengthy) at 3.5 hours long as DeMille really milks tension between Moses and Rameses to depict the rivalry and competitiveness of two men who have known each other since birth. The special effects are also remarkable for the time, especially the staff morphing into a serpent and the turning of the river water red. Elmer Bernstein's music score is perfectly rousing too.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:

Moses communicates with the Lord via a burning bush.

Do we have a date on which the film was officially banned? I watched this one during the first weekend of June, so I assume that I should be able to include it here if it was banned in Samoa at that time.

18. Dawn of the Mummy (1981) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to graphic violence *

Image

Intentionally released under a similar title to Dawn of the Dead, this evil mummy movie feels more like a zombie flick as an awakened mummified corpse and his cannibalistic minions wreak havoc on those who disturb his tomb. Shot on location in Egypt, the film features some nice daytime visuals, but the nighttime visuals are hard to see as the character run amok in pitch black. All of the characters are entirely interchangeable too.

* but at least there's no excessive nudity to offend since apparently the actresses had to stay clothed by law when shooting on-location in Egypt

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
In addition to the dinner scene that flavo posted earlier:Show

Banned in the UK for nudity, I guess. Here's how I'd describe this film - have you ever watched Mr. Hulot's Holiday and thought "cool, but I wish it was done WAY worse, but with a lot of boobs"? This film is for you!

First feature directed by Russ Meyer, it was the subject of a lawsuit in PA that determined it was not obscene, merely "vulgar, pointless and in bad taste." It was later banned by the BBFC for a couple decades until it got an 18+ rating.

Honestly, there's more implied nudity than actual nudity. And even the nudity present is not at all "sex-y" - it's more in the vein of nudism than porn. Still, kinda interesting to see one of these early nudie films that was initially banned (including in the US) and just how tame it was by modern standards and even the standards just a few years later.

19. Don't Go in the Woods (1981) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to violence

Image

There are admittedly some grisly deaths here, but all of the splatter effects are disappointingly tame and little physical impact is shown with the film generally cutting to dead bodies after off-camera altercations. The film is also weighed down by some very poor acting with noticeably rehearsed line delivery all round, plus the film does not remain true to its key message (don't go into the woods alone) as being together does not help the characters.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
SpoilerShow
One of the scared friends tries to attack the murderer by plunging a gigantic branch in his stomach, only to impale a hiker instead.

2. Horí, má panenko - The Firemen's Ball (Milos Forman, 1967, Czechoslovakia). "Banned forever" by the Soviets for political reasons after their invasion of Prague in 1968. It seems Forman's satire rubbed a lot of people the wrong way at the time. He had to travel around the country to explain the film was not an attack on firemen, and that it was a relatively lighthearted message. However, his producer, Carlo Ponti (Sophia Loren's husband, who produced many prominent films, including La Strada, Doctor Zhivago, Blowup and the Passenger), pulled his funding. Because of this, Forman faced charges for "economic damage to the state". Fortunately, he found other producers in France, including Godard and Truffaut, which allowed him to avoid the charges. He was in France meeting with his new financial backers when the Soviets invaded Prague, and decided not to return to Czechoslovakia.

47. Midnight (1982)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Satanic shenanigans and other violent acts (the movie opens with a little girl being beaten to death so it's pretty upfront about its intent). The movie itself, directed by Night of the Living Dead writer John Russo, is a kind of mix of poor production values, stilted acting, sleaze and sadism. It's honestly not horrible for what it is, but you can also certainly do a lot better. Which leads me to....

Image
48. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) w/ Joe Bob Briggs' Dinners of Death
Where? It's almost easier to list where it wasn't banned but here's a list of places that didn't care for this horror masterpiece: UK, Finland, France, Ireland, Iceland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden and West Germany.... whew!
Why? Video Nasty Section 1: The big mamajama that stirred the pot on a grand scale despite having very little actual on-screen gore, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a great flick I like to revisit on occasion and am consistently struck by how well constructed and atmospheric it is and how it sustains such a sense of delirious terror in it's back half. There really are few other films like it. This time I took the opportunity to watch it hosted by Joe Bob Briggs for his Shudder Dinner of Death marathon. If you didn't already know, he loves this movie and knows a ludicrous amount about it, so much so that while the movie's runtime is 83 minutes, his episode featuring it runs at over 2.5 hours. He can barely contain himself in throwing out little interesting factoids and digressions surrounding the film. It's a great way to watch the movie if you've already seen it before.

Image
49. Home Sweet Home (1981)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: A rare Thanksgiving horror movie (if you're looking for one to round out a holiday marathon), it was certainly banned for violence, featuring multiple fairly graphic death scenes courtesy of an escaped mental patient. While the plot of the movie is pretty rote and it has a ponderous middle section, what really saves it from oblivion is Jay Steinfeld's ridiculously over-the-top performance as the crazy murder. Watching him do his thing is a sheer delight when he's on-screen. And when he isn't, the movie suffers.

Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Banned for the usual jungle cannibal reasons including a heapin' helpin' of animal cruelty. I guess the Indonesians wanted to get it on the gator-murdering action too. Also its a pretty bad movie in general.

51. Guinea Pig: Ginî piggu - Akuma no jikken (1985)
Where? Germany
Why? Pretty obvious if you even watch five minutes of it. Pretty much the whole movie is just an extended very graphic gore fest of a weird dude dismembering a woman while he's still alive. That's pretty much it. Deeply unpleasant and incredibly pointless. Most of the Guinea Pig series is like this, so I'd suggest just avoiding them altogether unless you just gore for gore's sake.

Banned in: Norway
Reason: High impact scary violence
Main reasonShow

Period: 1974-1997
It just seemed too real to be shown to the publc of the 70s. But this was in a time where blood effects like in the Hammer Movies was clearly fake red so this was a whole other league.

We actually showed this in our film club in 1999 or 2000, but had to import it from Germany, so I'm not too sure about that claimed 1997 date. Anyway, around that time it was finally available on DVD with an 18 year rating.

We (the film club) usually showed movies at the local cinema theatre, but this one we showed at cinema at the film school instead. Don't know if that had something to do with the ban, as some cinemas would maybe be careful to show it even if a film club by definition is a closed club. The age restriction on all movies in our film clubs across the country are 16, so maybe they didn't want people underage in something that clearly was a banned/18 year old rated movie.

Also banned in: Brazil, Finland (1974-1996), France (1974-1977), Iceland (1985-1999), Singapore (1974-2004), Sweden (1974-2001), UK (1974-1999), West Germany (1974-1978) to mention a few.

Norway and Australia also banned the second one, and Sweden banned the fourth one (The Next Generation)

We're up to 85 of the nasties watched! Keep up the pace! We've still got stone cold classics like The Thing and Suspiria that haven't been watched (as well as "not so" classics like Faces of Death).

But such movies are stuff everyone have seen, so it's really not something they would see again when they can pick between everything else

I dunno. I like to revisit really good movies from time to time (like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre for instance).
