In the early '80s, in fear of an entire generation's moral decay due to the availability of horror movies on home video, the British Parliament acted to criminalize the distribution of films that were uncertified as appropriate. This documentary examines the ban on "video nasties," from the tabloid drumbeat that spurred the censorship to the numerous court battles fought by filmmakers. Trailers for all 72 of the films that ran afoul of the law are also included. 9 hrs. on three discs. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; theatrical trailers.
