Dear God No! Only Censored in England

BBFC Demands Cuts for a Rating

The Grindhouse collaboration between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino put back some life into the shadowy existence of the same-named movie genre. Since then, more and more directors (especially from the B sector) use the traditional clichés and produce new pictures that manage to acquire a considerably large fanbase (think about Hobo with a Shotgun).

Although it's debatable whether Dear God No! has the same potential but at least in terms of censorship some eyebrows could be raised. This Grindhouse biker movie doesn't hold back in the violence department and was therefore not really the favorite entry of the year for the BBFC. Because of their guidelines, they demanded 1:34 min. of cuts in order to assign a classification. The reasoning:

Cuts were required to reduce the focus on a scene of sexual violence. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy, and the Video Recordings Act 1984.

It remains to be seen which version had to suffer from this since the British DVD will contain both the original version and a new Grindhouse Cut. We'll have to wait to make sure whether this new version was cut in the same places or had to endure additional censorship.


If you want an alternative without any cuts, you should consider buying the US release that comes without the MPAA rating (but also without the new Grindhouse Cut). The UK will get their censored version on January 14th, 2013.
