Film's Claim to Fame
20 July 2004 | by harry-76See all my reviews

Were it not for U.S. Customs taking action against key scenes in this import from Denmark, "Venom" (U.S. title) wouldn't be remembered. In fact, it isn't much detailed or voted on in the Database.

Yet, during its American run, this picture made quite a stir in national magazines, like Time, with pictures of the censored shots featured. It was one of the few films in which moviegoers in theaters were forced to endure large white "blots" on the screen, completely covering key scenes.

The story concerns a hedonistic young chap who delights in stirring up trouble with his video camera, screening filmed private intimate moments to parents of their children who are prominently featured on the video.

Apparently the explicit nature of said scenes were too much for Customs, who blatantly "barred" viewers from seeing the original film - yet still released it in an incredibly "blocked out" version.

A look at the low response on the Database indicates that the movie's quite forgotten, and another chapter of the past is past.
