former Nazi POW camp commandant is cleared of war crimes, but is
dealt a suitable revenge after being lured back to the site of their
former camp by one of his former female prisoners who he had
tortured and made his sex slave during the war.
There are some nasty flashback scene's involving skulls being
crushed with rifle butts and people being lowered screaming into
vats of acid. Has often been touted as the sickest of the
nazi-sploitation sub-genre, though falls way short of the mark
when compared to the likes of the "Ilsa" movies.
This one undoubtedly got included because of its lurid mix of
sex and violence. The release pictured left was by VFP, however
Videoshack also released this in a similar sleeve, which is much
Both releases had about 11mins cut from them, but were still
banned and prosecuted by the DPP. The film has still not been
re-released in the UK to date. The film has been released uncut
on disc in the US and Scandinavia, but some versions miss out the very
end scene, implying both main characters died of a gunshot. Whereas some versions contain an
additional scene, spliced in from a VHS source, showing one of
them getting back up and walking off.

the former home of a Dr. Freudstein, who's bizarre experiments on
the undead are still hanging about in the cellar.
Parts of the plot are a bit nonsensical, like where the baby
sitter is killed, yet no one questions her dissapearance, or
what all the blood is the housekeeper is cleaning up. But gore
fans will not be disappointed (well, with the uncut version
anyway), which features numerous throat slashing, decapitations
and poker stabbings.
This release was the cut cinema version, which removed a
decapitation scene and toned down most of the gore, but still
got included on the nasties list.
Despite being the same cut version that played UK cinemas, which
had 1:26s of cuts. The film was still successfully prosecuted
under the OPA. The post-VRA 1988 video release suffered 4:45s of
BBFC cuts, the 1993 video was cut even further, suffering 7:27s
of cuts. The 2001 DVD faired slightly better, being cut by only
21s. The BBFC FINALLY passed the film fully uncut in 2009.

But when they realise they were only allowed in so the other
party goers could take the piss out of them, they spend the best
part of the film beating up the men and doing all sorts of
unsavoury things to the ladies.
Sleazier and altogethor nastier than "Last House...",

with a razor, exploitation fans will undoubtedly enjoy it. But
rest assured, everyone gets their come-uppance during the films

Bell ("Anthropophagous") who both make their second

The film had been rejected for a cinema release in 1981. The

and banned under the OPA in 1983. The film was released to disc
in 2002 only after a whopping 11:43s of BBFC cuts. The 2011 release from

country music singer (Linda Haynes), is wrongly convicted of murder
and sent to a women's prison. Unfortunately the resident
psychologist, as played by Geoffrey Lewis (who played Orville Boggs
in those Clint Eastwood films with Clyde the Orangutan), has been
conducting bizarre psychological experiments on the inmates and our
plucky female lead finds she's up next.
Strange noises are heard in her cell at night, other inmates are
seen hanging in their cells, but are perfectly alright the next
morning, then giant bugs and spiders start appearing in her cell
Quite why he's doing this is never properly explained, and the
film doesn't really conclude, it just sort of ends. Being
primarily a women-in-prison film, there's plenty of female skin
on show, but the film is not particularly gory and was probably
targeted by the authorities because of its title, as it had
already been passed for a cinema release.
UK cinema release was uncut as was the pre-VRA video here, which
was eventually dropped from the list and not prosecuted. The
film has not to date been re-released in the UK, though a US DVD
from Scorpion releasing is apparently forthcoming. NOT to be
confused with the 1981 film "Strange Behaviour" (AKA Dead
Kids) which is also known as "Human Experiments".

based on the real life murder trial of Canadian estate agent Peter
Demeter, from Toronto. Elke Sommers, who's probably better known for
her appearance in "Carry on Behind", stars as his gold
digging wife, who is shown to have been killed in one of a number of
ways, which are all played out in a series of confusing flashbacks.
One of them involves her having a building block dropped on her
head, another being electrocuted in the swimming pool, whilst
another flashback shows her getting her head bashed in with an
Indeed, the story is told in such a disjointed manner its hard
to work out if it's meant to be set in the present or the past.
The film may have appeared on the DPP's list because of the text
on the video sleeve which says "For those who like their sex
with a lot of violence", although this is extremely misleading
as the violence is presented in a very abstract way.
The video was uncut and was only on the Nasties list for a very
breif period, before being dropped. The BBFC cut 1:06 for the
post-VRA release in 1986, which was retitled "Drop Dead
Dearest". The film is not currently available from anywhere
and seems to be languishing in obscurity.

to be confused with the 2016 Tom Hanks film of the same name, the
tenants of a New York apartment block meet a grisly demise after
coming across a book which chronicles the exploits of an evil trio
called "The Three Mothers" who rule the underworld.
The brother of one of the victims, Leigh McCloskey, does a
little investigating and discovers the horrible secrets housed
in the apartments.
Directed by prolific Italian director Dario Argento, this follow
up of sorts to his earlier "Suspiria" (which escaped inclusion
on the list), has some interesting scenes, which includes a
woman being attacked by dead bodies in a flooded basement and
one tenant falling into a room filled with razor wire, before
being decapitated by a broken window pane.
Apparently one scene that caused a lot of aggravation with the
censors was that of a cat eating a mouse. Haven't they ever seen
"Tom & Jerry"?
The UK cinema version had been cut by 21s to remove the scene of
a cat eating a mouse, as the BBFC felt this breached the
"cruelty to animals" act. The pre-cert video here was of the
uncut version, however it was dropped from the video nasties
list soon after and not prosecuted. Subsequent UK video releases
were similarly cut to the old cinema version. The film was
finally passed fully uncut in the UK in 2010.

Island of Death
AKA: Island of perversion, Island of Death, A Craving for Lust, Devils in Mykonos,
Pedhia tou dhiavolou, Cruel Destination, Psychic Killer 2.
on the island of Mykonos, this is one film that doesn't do the Greek
tourist board any favours. In which a young couple, Chris and Celia,
arrive on a Greek island for a winter break and decide to spend
their holiday killing and torturing the local sexual deviants.
A film with something to offend the entire "Politically Correct"
brigade, with it's depictions of beastiality, incest, torture,
homophobia. Some of the more amusing scenes include Chris having
sex with a goat, the couple invading a gay party wielding a
sword and chasing the host through the streets with it. Chris
calling his moher and making her listen to him having sex with
Celia in the phone box. A
lesbian being decapitated by a bulldozer, and to top it all off
the introduction of a farting farmer.
Small wonder this film fell foul of the authorities. It was
originally released under the aptly titled "Island of
A heavily cut version, missing a whopping 14mins, had been
released to UK cinemas under the title "A Craving for Lust",
but the pre-cert video here was uncut and was
successfully prosecuted and banned under the OPA. The film was
later rejected for a video release in 1987 under the title
"Psychic Killer 2", but was eventually passed in 2002 with
4:09s of cuts for a DVD release. The film was finally passed
fullly uncut in the UK in 2010.
I Spit on Your Grave
AKA: Day of the Woman, I Hate Your Guts.
extremely brutal and shocking film about a young author, played by
Cammille Keaton (grand-niece of Buster), who rents a cabin in the
countryside, only to attract the unwanted attention a group of young
rednecks and their retarded friend, who subsequently spend a large
portion of the film's running time repeatedly gang raping her.
Having recovered from her ordeal, she goes on a quest for
revenge. Hanging, castrating and chopping the 4 attackers to
death in retribution.
This was another one of the films that kicked off the "Video
Nasties" furore by the media, owing to its extremely lengthy
gang rapes, which are depicted with gritty realism and are
almost unwatchable. However, the scene's where she kills her
attackers for their misdeeds appear almost comical, particularly
when she hangs the retarded guy from a tree, which was so
ridiculous the whole scene appeared unintentionally funny.
The film was released uncut by both Wizard video and Astra. The
Astra cover (pictured left) being the more common. An aborted
sequel was filmed in the early 90s, which was later re-edited
and released as "Savage Vengeance". The film was later
remade in 2011, which spawned a string of sequels of its own.
The video was successfully prosecuted and banned under the OPA.
The film was eventually passed in 2001 with heavy BBFC cuts
totalling 7:02s, which heavily toned down, or completely removed
in some cases, the rape scenes. Though the revenge killings were
all left intact. The 2003 release was similarly cut, but they
'reframed' the rape scenes so they appeared to happen just off
camera, rather than remove them completely. The 2010 release was
passed with just 2:54s of cuts. SEE MAIN

1972. The pre-cert video here, which was successfully prosecuted
and banned under the OPA, was uncut in terms of gore but missed
out a 5min scene of the 2 goofy cops trying to hitch a ride on a
chicken truck, so the film would fit onto a 90min tape. The film
was rejected for a cinema release again in 1999 after the distributers
refused to make cuts, though they managed to show it uncut at
several special horror festivals. The film was finally passed in
2002, but the distributors were forced to make 31s of cuts. The
uncut version was FINALLY passed in 2009. There is an alternate
cut of the film, included with some DVD releases, entitled "Krug

bald headed man and a false eye being popped out of a latex

open heart surgery footage used in the operation scenes.
Cut for UK cinemas by around 1m, the pre-cert video here was

A Yeti hunting party sets out to find the creature only to
get their throats cut, faces fried, arms ripped off and beaten

The poor kids are subsequently garrotted, beaten with spiked
clubs, dismembered and dumped in giant pots of boiling water. But the gore is relatively unconvincing

Better known under it's alternate title "Mountain of the
Cannibal God" this is actually quite a good jungle adventure film, but like
most cannibal movies, features numerous nasty scene's of animal
killing (in the uncut version anyway), including a turtle being
fed to a crocodile and an iguana being split open. But Andress
fans will undoubtedly enjoy the scene where she is tied up,
stripped naked, and painted with goo!
Several of the gore scenes from this film were later "borrowed"
(ie ripped off) by Umberto Lenzi and re-used in his film
"Eaten Alive" (aka "Emerald Jungle", "Mangiati Vivi") which
surprisingly didn't make the list.
The video was the same as the cut cinema version, which had been
trimmed by the BBFC to remove the scenes of animal violence and
was eventually removed from the DPP's list and not prosecuted.
The 2001 release was similarly cut to remove the animal cruelty
scenes. An uncut extended version of the film has been released
in Mainland Europe and US, but beware of a cut version released
by some US budget labels, which is of the shorter theatrical
version and misses out a castration scene. This slightly
truncated version, with the animal cruelty intact, was actually
shown on UK satellite TV on the (now defunct) Paranormal channel
