Four Minutes of Racy Film 'A Serbian Film' Are Cut


Before it heads to theaters in U.K. next month, British Board of Film Classification has requested for a censorship of the horror movie about washed-up porn star.

Bosses behind controversial new horror movie "A Serbian Film" have been forced back to the editing suite to remove a number of gory scenes in a bid to secure a release in Britain. The dark new thriller, directed by Srdjan Spasojevic, tells the story of a washed-up porn star who is unwittingly drafted into a snuff movie, and it has already provoked outrage across Europe.

The picture was banned from a film festival in Spain earlier this month, while U.K. officials stopped a planned screening at London's recent Frightfest movie event. Executives at the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) objected to the level of sex and violence shown onscreen and demanded a number of scenes be removed.

A BBFC spokeswoman says, "A number of cuts were required to remove elements of sexual violence that tend to eroticise or endorse sexual violence." Over four minutes of footage has been cut and the film is now set for a December release.

A spokesman for the film's distribution company, Revolver Entertainment, says, "Revolver remain committed to releasing the closest possible version of the film to the director's original cut. The company recognizes that the film is an uncompromising, artistic and political statement from a unique film-making vision and remains fully supportive to (sic) the director."
