British Film Board Bans Japanese Horror Movie

From Britain's The Independent newspaper: "A Japanese horror film which features the lengthy and brutal torture of a young couple at the hands of a sadistic madman has been banned amid fears it could leave viewers psychologically damaged.
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) said the film, called Grotesque, offered audiences "little more than an unrelenting and escalating scenario of humiliation, brutality and sadism” and refused to give it a certificate.
Its decision means that selling or supplying the film in the UK is now illegal."
