Morituris Banned From Italian Cinemas

Sadistic Rape Horror Banned by Censor's Office

The Italian horror film Morituris has problems in its country of origin. The film was made in 2011 and provoked some reactions during its screenings at the Fantasia Film Festival 2012 because of its seemingly senseless violence against women. The makers defended themselves by stating that the story of their movie is mixed up out of two "true stories".

However, it seems that the Italian censor's office wasn't too convinced by that argument and banished the film from its theatrical release:

"[a] gratuity essay of perversion and sadism,” [...] “the commission unanimously sentence contrariety to allowing for public projection because of offence to good morals, intending acts of violence and perversion against women, motivated by enjoying of overcoming and thrill of self strength, empowered by consume of alcohol and drugs. The avengers find revenge against both boys, guilty of violence, and girls, victims of violence. At last, in acts of extreme perversion, a little mouse is used as a sex tool.

It's currently unknown what that means for the Italian DVD/BD releases.
