The "Video Nasties" were part of a list compiled by the United Kingdom government, containing films which were considered to be films of questionable material, be it excessive violence, or sexuality, or simply inappropriate subject matter. these films were pulled from rental shelves, and in some instances, the production companies were tried. Of the 74 films appearing on the list, 39 were successfully tried as being 'obscene.'


I was interested to find out to find out how many of these notorious 'Nasties' I've actually seen, so I thought I'd throw it open to the board as well... If you feel like it,tick every one on the list you've had the pleasure (ahem) of watching. - you don't have to own the DVD or anything, just watched at some point. also feel free to add any opinions/stuff about these movies...

there's a short description of each one here, in case you might need a memory jog: http://www.critical-film.com/essays/Nasties/Nasties1.html

edit- just filled out the list, turns out I've only seen 15. thought it was more!

I've seen 8 of them.  Also saw Madhouse, but that was from 2004 so I assume it's not the one on the list.

yeah the video nasties bill came in 1984, so all of those movies are before then...

I've seen six of these which is less than I expected. I only voted five though because I didn't notice Evil Dead.

sorry Jase I forgot to set the 'edit votes' thing when I posted, never mind

the one I haven't seen yet out of these that I'd most like to is THE BURNING. anyone know if there's an uncut version available? (or what the most uncut version is)

I marked Bay Of Blood, Blood Feast, The Evil Dead, Flesh For Frankenstein, Last House On the Left, Love Camp 7, Possession, SS Experiment Camp, and Xtro. I easily could have seen more under different titles, or just forgotten about them.

32..
Why laughable stuff like DONT LOOK IN THE BASEMENT and old stuff like BLOOD FEAST are listed make it even more silly than the idea behind it in the first place.

yeah. some of these even are on youtube, uncut. there's no consistency to the reasoning behind why some films are on this list and some aren't. a film like THE MUTILATOR is way more graphic than INFERNO for example, but it's not even on the list whereas INFERNO is...

ooh edit, MUTILATOR came out 1 year after the bill. you get my drift though...

I've only seen Xtro, and that was only in the last year because I found out it had a naked Maryam D'Abo!  Thank you, Bad Movies Forumites!

The usual video nasty candidate really isn't my kind of movie, though.  I'm not a real fan of slasher/basher/crasher whatever movies.  The only giallo I like is the strawberry kind that wobbles.

I've seen 14 of them. RC, I would'nt go so far as to say Don't Look In the Basement is laughable, but I agree that it doesn't belong on the list because the gore quotient is quite low compared to some of the others. I'd like to see the ones I haven't watched yet ie: Absurd.

someone voted for the last one "n/a" - I only had that there because I chose too many options by mistake and couldn't delete it lol

I've seen 34 . . . although I suspect there may be 1 or 2 others that I may have seen under alternate titles.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
