13. Hra o jablko (1977) (Soviet Union, Banned by the Czech Communist government. The director, Věra Chytilová, personally asked for more information at the censor board and heard that the Soviet embassy felt the subject matter was "too heavy-duty")
14. Born American (1986) (Finland-Political Reasons and Violence)
15. Ja milujem, ty milujes (Czechoslovakia, "ugly movie about ugly people and too depressing for the viewers")

1. The Evil Dead (1981) Video Nasty; banned in the UK
2. The Funhouse (1981) Video Nasty; banned in the UK

7. Love Camp 7 (1969) Video Nasty; banned in the UK

8. Christmas Evil (1980) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to graphic violence (and making Santa into a serial killer)

Image

Also known as You Better Watch Out, this thriller is slow to warm up and odd at first as the protagonist (a man deluded into believing that he is Santa) obsesses over one particular 'good girl' who he spies on with binoculars. The second half is a blast though as Christmas finally arrives and he dons the red suit. There is a dark comedy vibe as he drives his van like a sleigh, has trouble squeezing down chimneys, plus there is a police lineup of Santas! The best sequence though has kids gathering around to protect him from a concerned parent who cannot convince his daughter that Santa is dangerous.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
SpoilerShow
A seemingly friendly and loveable Santa Claus shocks onlookers by jamming the back of a toy hammer into the eye socket of street heckler.

Decided to take another Video Nasty break with some Chinese naturalism.
Image
18. Huo zhe (1994) a.k.a. To Live
Where? China
Why? By portraying a family struggling to survive during a tumultuous era of China, it was perceived to be critical of the Communist government which is a shame really. It's a wonderful, powerful film that deserved better.

Image
19. The Astrologer (1975) a.k.a. Suicide Cult
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Honestly I'm really not sure why this is on the list. It's mostly weird, nonsense conspiracy gibberish dialogue. There's a couple of banal scenes of nudity and a sex ritual scene but it's not really very explicit. There's hardly any violence and nothing I'd consider gory. The only thing I can figure out is that it was banned solely on the title Suicide Cult which makes it sound more intense than it is since I'm guessing the BBFC didn't bother to even watch a bunch of these flicks.

Image
20. L'ultimo cacciatore (1980) a.k.a. The Last Hunter
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: This action war movie from reliable Italian genre director Antonio Margheriti was almost certainly banned for all the over-the-top gore on display. This one was actually pretty fun.
War...hunh...good god y'all...what is it good for?Show
Image
Image
21. Revenge of the Boogeyman (1983) a.k.a. Boogeyman II
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Aside from the crime of literally half the movie re-using death scene footage from the first one, it's got a few really incredibly stupid kill scenes like death by electric toothbrush and death by um... having a ladder bump someone in the ass knocking them onto the tailpipe of a car where they asphyxiate? Yea... really... really... stupid. Also, the director himself was in the movie (it has a Scream 2 or Blair Witch 2-esque plot of Hollywood making a movie about the final girl from the first Boogeyman movie...hence all the flashbacks) being an obnoxious d-bag. While this probably wasn't as boring as The Astrologer, it is definitely overall crappier. Oh, also the opening credits look like they were made by a 5th grader.

Image
22. Terror (1978)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Banned for several scenes of violence. One Psycho-esque scene in particular involving a stabbing in a stairwell had quite a lot of blood splattered all over the walls. I actually dug this one more than a lot of the Video Nasties I've seen lately. It's pretty ridiculous in places but still quite fun with gonzo mood lighting a la Suspiria and a variety of kill scenes and suspense sequences in equal measure (one false scare in particular includes a special cameo from our late friend Chewbacca a.k.a. Peter Mayhew). It's not a masterpiece but it's not boring.
She seems to be in a spot of botherShow
Image
Image
23. The Toy Box (1971)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Banned almost certainly for all the very explicit softcore bordering on hardcore sex scenes and degredation of women as well as bizarre violence (it's got it all!), this film is one of the most WTF movies I've watched so far. The plot involves a guy's dead uncle controlling the fates of a group of party goers, forcing them to perform all manner of depravity in exchange for presents from the "Toy Box"? It's super fucking weird and only gets weirder as it goes to the point where by the end I just couldn't make much sense of it at all.
Even the dead get a chance as sleazy sex in this flickShow
Image
But seriously the last 30 minutes of this movie are so insane, I just couldn't stop mumbling "what the fuck" out loud to myself every few seconds.

I wasn't planning on joining this challenge but I just watched a film that just might qualify. Let me present my case.

This link says the following:
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the making of the film Salt of the Earth, the only movie banned during the McCarthy-era anticommunist witch-hunts in Hollywood.
Now this source affirms that the ban wasn't nation-wide, though the film was widely banned in the U.S for its left-wing perspective.

So if it is approved, then:
1. Salt of the Earth (1954) - (widely) banned in the US

Not only banned, but the people who made it were widely persecuted. If I remember correctly, the female lead was deported.

Anyway, Salt of the Earth is one of the all-time great labor movies.

Rewatch (3rd or 4th viewing). Two things to know about this movie: 1) one of my favorite ways to annoy my wife is to follow her and make the "chi chi chi ah ah ah" sound behind her, and 2) my wife has never seen this movie. Tonight we watched it, and when we got to the sound, she exclaimed "Oh THAT'S where you got that from." A little white later, she said, "this is really creepy - every time they play that sound, I think it's you doing it."

Video nasty. Banned for violence. Interestingly, the entire Friday the 13th series is banned in Malaysia for "high-impact cruelty and violence."

9. Axe / Lisa, Lisa (1974) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to graphic sexual violence involving an underage girl

Image

Described by some as a precursor to I Spit on Your Grave, the plot here has a teenage girl attack three intruders (separately) as they each try to rape her. This is less of an emotional rollercoaster than the 1978 classic though since her pain and suffering is very limited in each case before she strikes back. There is almost something of interest in how she toys with the emotions of the three intruders and tries to set them against one another, but the performances are too muted for proper effect. There are some nifty moments here though (blood splattered across improperly tuned television set).

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
SpoilerShow
A 15-16 year old girl users a razor blade to slice to back of an older man's neck in the middle of being raped; blood splatters across her face as he collapses at what would have otherwise been a point of a climax.

24. Los violadores (1981) a.k.a. Mad Foxes
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: This movie is basically a series of violent attacks between a sleazy douchebag and a Nazi biker gang. Kicking off with the gang violently raping his barely 18-year-old girlfriend, things escalate into more and more over-the-top violent vengeance including a gruesome scene of a biker getting his dick cut off and shoved into his mouth. The movie is pretty horrible in a way but also I'd say accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do, culminating in a hilariously stupid but appropriate ending.

Image
25. Schoolgirls in Chains (1973)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: You can look at the cover and title and guess why this one is on the list. That's right it involves two sicko brothers chaining up and torturing women in their basement. Pretty unpleasant movie all around.

Image
26. Le lac des morts vivants (1981) a.k.a. Zombie Lake
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Actually pretty tame on the violence front. There's a couple scenes of women skinny dipping being attacked by underwater Nazi zombies but there's little on-screen gore. I think this one was probably banned more for the title than anything. It's also almost certainly Jean Rollin's weakest movie I've seen and the worst underwater Nazi zombie movie also (yes, there's more than one).

Image
27. La bestia in calore (1977) a.k.a. The Beast in Heat
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 1: The film is bookended with neanderthal rape scenes (Nazi experiment, guys... of course) but for much of the run time, there's not a lot actually going on on-screen. That is, until about an hour in where it kicks into grand guignol mode with a ludicrously offensive torture sequences that includes but is not limited to: vaginal electrocution, rats eating entrails, whipping and water torture, fingernails being pulled out and capped with another neanderthal rape that includes graphic pubic and clitoris ripping and eating. Deeply, deeply unpleasant. On the positive side, I think this is the last Nazisploitation movie I have on the list... so yay?

Image
28. Visiting Hours (1982)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 2: Well, the violence in this is actually pretty mild for a slasher. It's more the general misogynistic, grim tone I think that triggered the BBFC on this one. Michael Ironside's character just seems to have a seething hatred of women which results in some intense, uncomfortable sequences. As far as the quality of the movie, I'd say it's actually pretty good/well made and effective if you can get past the nastiness of it.

Image
29. Ultimo mondo cannibale (1977) a.k.a. Jungle Holocaust a.k.a. The Last Survivor
Where? UK, Iceland (and heavily edited in a lot of other places)
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: It's a Ruggero Deodato cannibal movie with all the trappings that includes: gruesome murder and cannibal scenes, animal cruelty (that poor alligator...), a generally desperate nasty tone... I don't really enjoy these movies and this one is pretty typical. I will at least give credit to Massimo Foschi for really digging into his role though.

Image
30. Mosquito der Schänder (1977) a.k.a. Bloodlust
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Several very bloody scenes of the main character drinking blood from corpses, decapitation, other corpse-related unpleasantness all amounts to sufficient reason for the BBFC to take umbrage with it. I will say this is a pretty fascinating, bizarre character study though that feels quite unique and worth a watch in comparison to a lot of the dregs on this list.

Image
31. La belva col mitra (1977) a.k.a. Mad Dog Killer
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Probably a combination of the rape and the overall sadistic vibe throughout the film. The actual on-screen violence isn't terribly prevalent but it's probably more excessive than the typical Poliziotteschi.

A question about the Nazi rape movies that a lot of people are watching:

I understand why some people in the broader society want to watch these movies. People are into weird things. But I'm wondering why people in this forum want to watch these movies. Do you guys like Nazi rape movies? Is it about being competitive in this challenge? Is it a higher devotion to flouting the strictures of authorities who try to ban these movies?

No judgments. I'm just really curious.

Well, let me take a crack at answering this from my perspective...

No, I don't like Nazi rape movies. It's a bit about participating in the challenge and being a tad competitive. No higher devotion to subverting power structures or anything like that.

For me, it's more about exploring a niche subgenre and seeing how it relates to broader aspects of film. I had zero clue what "video nasties" were before this challenge thread got posted, so that Wikipedia page was super helpful. Cannibal Holocaust is on that list, which makes a lot of sense to me. But so is Friday the 13th, which has no nudity and is nowhere near as violent/graphic, and is not a film that I would have been banned except in EXTREMELY conservative/repressive societies. So as I'm watching some of these "video nasties", I'm learning a bit about the films and why/how they were banned - it's interesting to look this stuff up and read some articles about these films.

And on the broader aspects of film, it's interesting to see how/where some of these films pop up on official lists - like Island of Death is on the TSZDT list, which makes sense. But I'm curious about some of those other official "video nasties." It's also interesting to see and compare films and the reasons they're banned. Yeah, I'll probably watch a nazi rape movie or two this month, but I also just picked up The Ten Commandments from the library (banned in Malaysia for religious content), and will probably watch some films banned for political reasons. It's all a part of the learning process for me.

And just to round this out, no, I don't really like the nazi rape movies (or similar-ish types of films). But what makes them even remotely tolerable is that there's an implicit understanding that what's being shown is bad, and that there will be (or should be) consequences for such horrifying behavior. Movies without that basic humanist perspective are the ones that really scare me.

No judgments. I'm just really curious.
For me, it's just a kind of OCD completeness kind of thing. I have a goal of watching all the Video Nasties. Give me a checklist like that, and I get super fixated on finishing it. I'm not even really that competitive. I absolutely do not enjoy the Nazisploitation movies at all. They're all pretty much garbage, but I gotta check that box, man.

Having said that, I do enjoy a lot of horror movies though, so watching most Video Nasties for me is not a painful experience except for the Nazi ones and a lot of the cannibal ones which usually throw in some unpleasant live animal murder sequences.

Look forward to seeing our progress here when you find a spare moment to update the OP. :run:
As and ye shall receive! OP has been updated. I had actually planned to yesterday, but my work laptop had some issues with Google Sheets for some reason.

We have collectively watched 58 out of 152 of the Video Nasties! Good progress, gang! On another positive note, I believe we've also watched all of the Nazi movies, so you only have to watch those if you really want to! Hooray!

Horror and fantasy are my two favorite genres and, regardless of genre, I particularly like films that are either surreal/trippy/mind bending or grim/realistic/visceral or a combination of the two. Some of the video nasty films and their ilk fit this area, but not all are necessarily enjoyable viewing. I don't particularly care for the nazi exploitation films, for example, though I do like some of the cannibal and slasher films on that list.

vile incompetent pice of shit. the best scene was the car scene with the actor from the first installment. and the main actor has a suitable face. that's about all I can positively say about this crap. it's far behind the first part, which had some entertaining scenes. somewhere around 1.0 to 1.2/10

I'm watching Part III now, it'll bring me Tim Dirks' Most Controversial Films of All-Time bronze award, but unfortunately this one doesn't seem the have been banned anywhere, so I can't use it for this challenge.

Previously watched...Show
1. Shorts [Total time = 63 mins.]
a. Zéro de conduite: Jeunes diables au collège / Zero for Conduct (Vigo, 1933) [44 mins.]
b. Red Hot Mamma (Fleischer, 1934) [7 mins.]
c. Peppa Pig: Mr Skinny Legs (Baker-Astley, 2006) [5 mins.]
d. All This and Rabbit Stew (Avery, 1941) [7 mins.]
2. Triumph des Willens / Triumph of the Will (Riefenstahl, 1935)
Banned in Germany, 1945-70s.
Reason: Pro-Nazi propaganda
Bonus Challenge: Ban reason (Content: Nazi imagery)Show
Image

Any scenes that glorify Nazism and portray Hitler in a positive light qualify (i.e. most of the film), but here's a classic propaganda shot of a mass salute as Hitler approaches a giant Swastika to make his closing speech.
The cinematography of the Nuremberg rallies is astonishing, but the viewer also has to deal with a lot of speeches/rants from various Nazi officials, and parades that go on for what seems like ages. Interesting from a historical perspective, though.

3. The Good Son (Ruben, 1993)
Banned in UK, 1993-4.
Reason: Violent acts comitted by a child
Bonus Challenge: Ban reason (Imitable behaviour, SFW)Show
Image

Any scene of evil Culkin trying to murder people counts, but this is the scene which remained cut even when it was finally released, as the tiny terror drops a dummy off an overpass to cause a car pileup.
This film's release had the bad luck to be coincide with the murder of 3-year-old James Bulger by two 10-year-old boys. That triggered another video nasty scare centered around Child's Play 3, but as this film centres around a murderous child, it got caught up in the panic and was withdrawn for a couple of years. With a script by Ian McEwan and Michael Lehmann (Heathers) directing, this had a lot of potential until Macaulay Culkin's dad started interfering with the production and the director and writer left the project as it started getting dumbed down. The behind-the-scenes drama is a lot more interesting than the film itself, which is a bland 90s psychological thriller, but it does benefit from the child performances. Elijah Wood is excellent, and Culkin is good, though I find his acting too mannered for my taste.

Do you guys like Nazi rape movies? Is it about being competitive in this challenge? Is it a higher devotion to flouting the strictures of authorities who try to ban these movies?

No judgments. I'm just really curious.
Do I like Nazi rape movies? I don't know if I have seen enough to judge either way. I know that Salon Kitty and Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS have been termed Nazisploitation films by some and I think both are pretty great movies; the former largely boosted by Dyanne Thorne's zesty performance as a female Dr. Mengele and the latter a lusciously produced Cabaret variant.

The only Nazisploitation that I have seen for the Challenge so far is Love Camp 7 and I certainly didn't hate it. Oh, it's not a great film by any measure with a silly wraparound story and pretty poor performances all round, however, the narrative has its interesting aspects, looking at power abuse and having a Nazi character question the ethical goings-on at the camp. I got a bit of a Salo vibe from the film; that is to say, the most intriguing aspect of the film was the way the Nazis let their power to go to their heads.

That said, like peeps, I am pretty into horror so I'll give almost everything with that sort of label a try. I don't know if I will watch any other Nazisploitation films for the Challenge. They wouldn't be my first preference, but I'm limited by what's available to me from the Video Nasties so list, so I guess it comes down to competitiveness and the fact that I wouldn't mind if I needed to squeeze in a couple more if I ran out of stuff to watch.

Thx!!!!


3. Tim Dirks' Most Controversial Films of All-Time Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (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. ;)

6. Snuff (1975) Image The marketing was likely genius at the time, but the film is quite poor. There is nothing of note (except some appropriate 70s-style music) until the last 20 minutes or so when the offending activities occur (and these were done to MUCH better effect in Last House on Dead End Street). Truthfully I can't find anything about this film actually being banned (though it was prosecuted and is on the VN list). If it's disallowed that's fine... :shrug:

10. Island of Death (1976) Video Nasty; banned in the UK due to graphic violence (and bestiality)

Image

The psychology of the protagonists are interesting here as they believe that seducing everyone in sight (including goats!) is not sinful but rather the only way to test virtue, and then the pair resort to religious-themed extremes such as crucifixion to punish those they deem unfit. Shot with extreme high and low camera angles and unsettling close-up fish eye lensing, this is an engrossing if episodic film that is unafraid to push the limits of good taste.

Bonus Challenge: Why the film was banned:
WARNING: Definitely Not Safe for WorkShow
A) After having sexual relations with a young female goat, the male protagonist punishes the goat for its wanton ways by slitting its neck. I kid you not.

B) The same man feels fit to punish a painter who had consensual sexual relations with his female travelling companion by nailing him to the ground in what he terms a crucifixion.

C) Unable to find a naked woman who has chased through his motel, the same man strikes his scythe through a door and manages to impale the lady standing on the other side.

2. Cairo Station (1958)
3. Orgy of the Dead (1965)
4. The Driller Killer (1979) [video nasty]
5. Island of Death (1976) [video nasty]
6. Friday the 13th (1980) [video nasty]
7. The Last House on the Left (1972) [video nasty]
Video Nasty, banned for violence. I found this to be a huge drag for the first 3/4 of it, but was pretty pulled in at the end.

8. The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)
Banned in Malaysia for pervasive sexual humor. And a rewatch - I needed a bit of an antidote after watching my 7 and 10 (I'm too lazy to fix posting order), and this fit the bill.

9. Borat (2006)
Banned in Malaysia for crude humor and politics. Also a rewatch and pretty fun. But also scary with some of the people he met.

10. Dawn of the Dead (1978) [video nasty]
Video Nasty for violence. I liked this a whole lot more than I thought I would - good social commentary with some great characters in there. Pretty solid way to keep my attention.

The basic idea is not half-bad here with the shards of broken mirror glass causing those who touch them to kill themselves in a variety of creative ways (the most inventive novelty death involves a kiss that impales two teens) but the filmmakers seem unsure of where exactly their story is heading. Is it meant to be a demonic possession tale or something more like the vastly superior Oculus with the mirror influencing human behaviour?

32. G.B.H. (1983)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: To be honest, I really don't know why this one is on the Video Nasty list. There's really not much violence in the movie and most of what's there comes at the end. There's one scene that could be maybe a little much for very sensitive people but really, it's very tame. The only thing I could figure is the title of the film (G.B.H. stands for Grievous Body Harm) coupled with the box art of the main character covered in blood is what got it on there. It can't be the movie itself since this dull British crime flick seems to be liek 1/3 upskirt disco dancing, 1/3 the main character showing his sensitive side by making out with his lady through a soft focus lens or walking with her hand-in-hand shirtless through a park while some syrupy 80's pop ballad plays and 1/3 mumbled pointless dialogue that general leads to really boring slow fight scenes.

Image
33. Mansion of the Doomed (1976)
Where? UK
Why? Video Nasty Section 3: Pretty obvious on this one. The plot revolves around a surgeon who goes crazy trying to restore his daughter's eyesight by scooping out the eyes of others and attempting to transplant them. So yea, lots of eye scooping trauma going on in this one. While it's a little slow in places, it actually has some decent moments as well that put it above some of the bottom tier nasties.
The eyes have itShow
Image
Image
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.

Image
35. Der Untertan (1951) a.k.a. Man of Straw
Where? West Germany
Why? While celebrated as a triumph in film in communist East Germany, West Germany felt it was communist propaganda intended to, as Der Spiegel (a German news magazine) put it, "raise public opinion in the West against the Federal Republic".
