Found - Australia Bans Coming-of-Age Drama

Ratings Board Rejects Serial Killer Film

A coming-of-age story of a different kind is offered by the film Found. It was made in 2012 and deals with a young boy whose brother is a serial killer. The film contains a lot of scenes that prompted the Australian ratings board to deny it a classification and thus ban it from a release in Down Under. Said scenes are described as follows:

The film contains prolonged and detailed depictions of sexualised violence, including sexualised torture, mutilation, sexual activity with body parts and cannibalism, which result in a very high degree of impact. As such, this film exceeds what can be accommodated within the R18+ classification.

The Board notes that the film also contains depictions of nonsexual violence. These depictions of violence, which also include viscera, generous blood detail and gore, are mitigated by context and relatively unsophisticated production values to a level which can be accommodated at an R18+ classification. The scenes of sexualised violence, noted below, are more realistic and impactful, and result in a very high impact.

So, after Australia is not an option for Found, we'll have to look at England next. Here, a release date is set for September 29th, 2014. But there is room for doubt whether the BBFC will let it pass without any censorship. The British ratings board isn't a big fan of sexualized violence with the recent example being The Hospital that only got on UK home video after suffering massive cuts.
