Hate Crime - BBFC Denies Classification
The thriller Hate Crime was produced in 2012 and shows in found footage style how a group of neonazis break into the house of a Jewish family and sadistically tortures them. When submitted to the British ratings board BBFC, their screening process ended with a clear result: they rejected the picture and deemed it impossible to issue a rating.
In the meantime, the film's director James Cullen Bressack responded and didn't have much praise for the decision.
via haddonfieldhorror: "I am honoured to know that my mind is officially too twisted for the UK. So it goes … I find it unbelievable that a film that shows little to no on screen violence and no nudity was actually banned. it just shows the power of what is implied and peoples imagination; and is a testament to the fact that the same crimes that happen in the world are truly horrifying."
Since a censored version seems impossible, as well, potential buyers will have to look in the US to get a hold of the film.
