Ah, the eighties. That magical time when you’d toddle down to the local video store and peruse the shelves, hopefully finding some new slice of cinematic depravity to enjoy over the weekend. If you were in the UK, however, it was a great deal harder to get your horror fix, thanks to some real uptight old sticks in the mud who thought that horror and exploitation flicks were causing the downfall of civilization. The BBFC, or British Board of Film Censors, came down hard on home video horror in the 1980s, confiscating video tapes and arresting shop owners, all because they were convinced that seeing some fake dismemberment and cannibalism was going to compel little Nigel to act out the carnage in real life. Join Tom and Jenny on this infuriating and absurdly hilarious journey through horror movie history, when watching or selling cult classic films such as A Bay of Blood, The Burning, Cannibal Holocaust, The Driller Killer, I Spit on Your Grave, or The Last House on the Left could get you fines or prison time, on this gleefully uncensored episode 326.
