BBFC decision comes after research finds public concern over effect on 'vulnerable viewers', especially young men
Classification chiefs will tighten their policy on "sexual or sadistic violence" after new research found public concern over its effect on "vulnerable viewers".
The research, carried out on behalf of the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), comes after controversy over so-called torture porn films including The Human Centipede II.
More than two and a half minutes were cut from the film about an obsessed horror movie fan who staples people together for kicks before it was given a certificate last year.
Around the same time the BBFC banned another film – The Bunny Game – about a prostitute kidnapped and sexually abused by a trucker.
