Having its World Premiere at London’s Frightfest in August is Jake West’s VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP & VIDEOTAPE. Taking in the explosion of home video, the erosion of civil liberties, the introduction of draconian censorship measures, hysterical press campaigns and the birth of many careers born in blood and videotape, it also reflects on the influence this peculiar era still exerts on us today. This era-defining documentary features interviews with filmmakers Ruggero Deodato (‘Cannibal Holocaust’) Neil Marshall (‘The Descent’, ‘Doomsday’), Christopher Smith (‘Severance’, ‘Black Death’), Andy Nyman (‘Ghost Stories’) and for the first time since 1984, MP Graham Bright. There’s also rare archive footage of James Ferman (director of the BBFC 1975-1999) & Mary Whitehouse, plus lots more! It will be available on DVD October 11 where it will be included as part of Nucleus Films’ upcoming three-disc set ‘Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide’.
