A Look at What Gets Cut

Ban the Sadist Videos! Part 2 (2006)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

The second part of David Gregory's series that takes a look at the BBFC and their harsh stance on horror movies. This documentary starts off talking about the stuff that was original cut during movies and it centered mainly around rape and graphic, over-the-top violence. The documentary talks about the various films that were hacked up but then we get into more details about new laws that people wanted passed that might have ruined anything stronger than a PG-rating.

BAN THE SADIST VIDEOS! PART 2 is another winner from director Gregory who once again proves why he's one of the best out there when it comes to documentaries. We get a great idea of what the political mindsets were back in the day because it's clear that certain groups were the ones wanting these movies cut down. We also get a clear understanding at how the media really got behind all of this stuff and it was probably due to them wanting to stir up controversy so that they could sell papers (sound familiar?). We get interviews with those inside the business as well as one many whose house was raided when police learned he had illegal videos like THE DRILLER KILLER.
