Hanger is banned in Australia

No chance for splatter film in Down Under

The brutal horror film Hanger by Ryan Nicholson is available in other countries such as the US, Germany or Austria for quite a while now. Australia was supposed to be the next market where it should have been released. However, the Australian classification board rained on the distributor's parade and denied the film its necessary rating.

The drastic depiction of violence and the multiple scenes of sexualized violence prompted the board to let Hanger fail in the rating process and therefore put a ban on the film in Down Under.

The film contains depictions of explicit sexual violence and sexualised violence that are very high in impact, as well as prolonged depictions of violence which are offensive and/or have a very high degree of impact. Depictions of violence include detailed mutilation and disfigurement, viscera and shattered bone as well as blood gushes, splatter and spray. A male character is tortured with a blow torch while two others are choked to death - one with excrement and the other with a used tampon. Sexual themes underpin the depictions of violence with pornographic footage and still images featuring full frontal nudity with genital detail and explicit sexual intercourse frequently viewed in the background. Other scenes of violence are cut with depictions of sexual activity and/or sexualised nudity. The sexual content and sexualised context both serve to heighten the overall impact of the violence viewed throughout the film. This content exceeds what can be accommodated within the R18+ classification and, as such, is Refused Classification.
