The Spanish Chainsaw Massacre Cut in England

Horror Short Film Needed Trims for a BBFC Rating

The horror film Carnívoros was made in Spain in 2013 and is marketed in other territories under the alternate title The Spanish Chainsaw Massacre. Even though it has a rather small runtime of just 53 minutes, it seems that the film tries to use that duration to deliver what genre fans want to see.

In England, that caused problems when the distributor submitted it to the BBFC. For a rating, the members of the board demanded the censoring of a scene of sexualized violence involving a child. Consequently, 32 seconds of footage were cut out and the BBFC 18 rating was applied. Until now, the British release seems to be the first one worldwide when it hits the UK market on September 22nd, 2014.
