    Thanks. Possibly cut could be scenes involving horses where they have been tripped in a manner not appropiate as deemed by the BBFC, I know as Ulzanas Raid has some very choppy cuts involing horses, though all other reigons are uncut.

    Hi,

    According to the BBFC, at...

    www.bbfc.co.uk/website/Classified.n...0bc1239783badb3080256921002dca1d?OpenDocument

    SB was last classified in 2000, for UK home video, with just 23 seconds of cuts (Running Time, after cuts, 109m 28s). Momentum Pictures are the company trying to get this through for its 2005 release onto DVD.

    Depending on whether the BBFC feel that the historical nature of the film allows it any leniency for its certification, they may let the horse-trips through uncut. However, the sexual violence is likely to be toned-down. Even though the BBFC have passed many films uncut, that have contained contentious material, I can't see SB being allowed through intact.

    Also, notice how Play have it listed as a 15 certificate.. Ummm, I don't think that's going to happen either! It'll almost definitely be an 18 certificate, because of the final 20 minutes or so being so uncompromising.

    The Manitou on DVD? :thumbsup:

    Pity they didn't film more of Graham Masterton's novels.....Tengu and Charnel House being approriate cheesy horror fodder.
