Morgue Street - Australia Refuses Classification

Italian Short Film Rejected by the ACB

Edgar Allen Poe has inspired a lot of filmmakers to create films with dark stories and it's often a useful marketing tool. A strategy that lays the emphasis on gore is used by the people behind the Italian short film Morgue Street.

It was shown on several festivals around the globe and was supposed to stop by in Sydney at the "A Night Of Horror Film Festival". However, just two days before it should have been screened, the Australian Classification Board (ACB) refused to give it a classification. Instead, the result is "RC" (Rejected Classification), which means that the board thinks that the film offends "against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults".
