House on Straw Hill Uncensored for the First Time
The British horror film House on Straw Hill (OT: Expose) was made in 1976 and stars Udo Kier in the lead role. At the time, the BBFC slapped it with the "X" rating and that's the way it was released on VHS. Even today, it is among the "Video Nasties" and both the British and French DVD are censored by 52 seconds (see comparison).
Now, the US distributor Severin Films announced a June release on DVD and Blu-ray. While it was believed that the original camera negative was lost or destroyed, it was surprisingly found in a British barn and got restored. Severin Films declares that it will be the first official uncut release worldwide. The bonus section is filled with an audio commentary by director James Kenelm Clarke and interviews with cast and crew.
House on Straw Hill will be released in the US on June 11th, 2013.
