The OFLC is no more, but Australian classification and censorship still lag far behind the rest of the First World. Their policy on video games alone is proof of that.

Yes, that is shitty news.

The Australian OFLC (the New Zealand censors are also called the OFLC) is strict on hardcore sex and violence of any kind appearing in the same movie. Not just the same scene, the same movie. Anywhere.

This is the result of the infamous Non-Violent Erotica compromise/deal made with an independent politician, senator Harradine (fuck, I still remember the cunt's name).

SALO got passed a few months ago. But I won't celebrate until it's on the shelves and I buy a copy.

Sound slike that guy would have got on well with James Ferman, Im amazed in todays world such censorship stills goes on. In a place like China it wouldnt suprise me but in Australia i wouldnt have imagined it being so strict.

I'd like to see how films like Murder Set Pieces and Grotesque fare in Australia.

They would be rejected from my impressions of the Austraian Censors or least suffer heavy edits. Didnt Bad Taste suffer heavy cuts until fairl recently over there? even Ferman didnt edit that one supriseingly. I often thought the low budget and humour was the reason for its un-edited U.K release on Video. However many other horror films still suffered dispite the low budget sfx and tongue in cheekness.
Ferman must have been on his summer vacation when they passed Braindead and Bad Taste.

Yes I would think so too! My bet the Aussie censors definitely WILL reject these tedious and appalling films! Enough said!

I want to see HUMAN CENTIPEDE classified PG with the consumer advice "adult concepts".

I haven't checked on GROTESQUE or GUTTERBALLS or MURDER SET PIECES, but if there's no overt....umm..."carnal enthusiasm" on show, they should get R 18+ ratings.

Twelve minutes were cut to get an R rating for Braindead, still falling ten minutes short of Murder Set Pieces' record.

It would be interesting (and exhausting) to see the cuts for an R-rated version of The Aristocrats. It certainly wouldn't be releasable, considering the film's structure and the fact that it's only 89 minutes as is. Had it been submitted before release in 2005, my guess is that they would have removed half an hour. Maybe more. And there's not a drop of blood or a flash of nudity to be seen!

Quite odd for Ferman to pass it intact only for it to be cut to shreds in the U.S, useally we got the more toned down versions of such films.
