Release: Oct 19, 2013 - Author: Blade41 - Translator: Sebbe - external link: IMDB
Some movies are destined to get in trouble with the censorship institutions. One of them is the remake of I Spit on Your Grave, produced in 2010. The British BBFC didn't quite welcome this rape'n'revenge movie with open arms. As is known, they have some slight problems with the depiction of sexual violence, so they denied a rating for the uncut version of the movie. Only after a lot of cuts were made, they gave it a BBFC 18 rating. The movie shares this fate with some other well-known productions. The best-known of them is probably A Serbian Film.

It seems to be the same with I Spit on Your Grave 2, which is no surprise, because the sequel goes even further in terms of violence and also contains some really intense violence and torture scenes, apart from some extensive rape scenes. That's why the BBFC demanded some cuts for a BBFC 18 rating; and there had to be cut even more than for the prequel. The rape scenes with Katie were heavily cut or other parts of the picture were used and some nude scenes were replaced by alternative footage. But the scenes depicting violence weren't changed at all.

This is a comparison between the cut BBFC 18 version and the uncut US Unrated version, both by Anchor Bay Home Entertainment.

There are to be found 43 differences in the two versions:
*22 cut scenes
*16 scenes with alternative footage
*4 scenes with zoom
*1 additional scene in the UK version

The Unrated version is 100.84 seconds (~ 1:41 minutes) longer than the BBFC 18 version.
