Comparison between the cut UK DVD by Screen Entertainment (BBFC 18) and the uncut German VHS by Madison Video (ungeprüft)
Faces of Death IV continued the infamous Mondo series in 1990. Similar to the predecessors, this part was also banned in Germany quite quickly after release. At least, in contrast to its predecessors, the film was released in its entirety in this country. The situation was different abroad.
The British DVD of part 4 is censored in a scene with animal violence - although an "Uncut" notice is emblazoned on the 1-4 box set cover. While many BBFC guidelines have been relaxed over the years, the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937 still exists today. In the USA, the same version has been released on DVD by Gorgon Video.
There is a soft transition to the scene in which pigs are slaughtered in various ways. First some shots out of a shotgun are fired at them, then stabs in the neck follow and the animals bleed out. The scene continues with cleaning and evisceration. Our pseudo-doctor says that in addition to the consumption of the meat, the focus is also on the use of the organs for medical purposes. Thus, among other things, insulin for diabetics is obtained from the killed animals.
