Details are likely to be more complete and accurate for the version submitted most recently.
When a film is transferred to video the running time will be shorter by approximately 4% due to the differing number of frames per second. This does not mean that the video version has been cut or re-edited.

I reviewed this film for Black Static #12.

The BBFC usually gives detailed reasons for rejection on the site - they haven't yet.

And linking this to Antichrist (which I have seen, unlike Grotesque) is a cheap shot for that BBC news story.

Now that the BBFC have kindly piqued my interest in this film I notice that there are quite a few torrents of it out there.

Mind you, anyone supplying it at the moment through regular outlets in the UK is immune from prosecution, what with the current debacle over the Video Recording Act lol. My, did I laugh!
