The VRAs

In what will hopefully become an ongoing feature here at the ISCFC, we’re going to do reviews of the films that have been banned by the British authorities down the years under the auspices of the Video Recordings Act of 1984 (hence “the VRAs”, not an award show sadly). Virtually all of them have since been released, often completely uncut, and every horror site in the world has done recaps of them. But I thought up a name that wasn’t “video nasties” for our season of reviews (although I’ll have to put that in the tags so people can find our reviews via searching).

My review of the documentary on video nasties can be found here:

And the full list of films banned by the British government can be found here:

Links to reviews will follow underneath the picture, but if there’s something you want us to get to first (our approach being almost entirely random) then please leave a comment.

How many of those crappy crappy films have you seen?
