A list of all the films deemed "video nasties".

Seems like a pretty arbitrary selection of films to me. There are certainly more violent/sleazy films out there. Why choose these ones? Who knows... but here is the list.

What is a "video nasty"?


From Wikipedia:
"Video nasty" was a term coined in the United Kingdom in the 1980s that originally applied to a number of films distributed on video cassette that were criticized for their violent content by various religious organizations, in the press and by commentators such as Mary Whitehouse. While violence in cinema had been subject of censorship for many years, the lack of a regulatory system for video sales combined with the possibility of any film falling into children's hands led to new levels of concern. Many of these "video nasties" were low-budget horror films produced in Italy and the United States. The furore created by the moral crusade against video nasties led to the introduction of the UK's Video Recordings Act 1984 which imposed a stricter code of censorship on videos than was required for cinema release. Several major studio productions ended up being banned on video, falling afoul of legislation that was designed to control the distribution of video nasties."

Good list. I never heard of that term. I just learned something new today.
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 15 1:21
Well I'm glad you learned something new then! :)

It's always nice to learn new things. Knowledge rocks.

Hello, like the list. I'm a bit of a horror fan and was wondering if you've ever heard of August Undergrounds Mordum? I've saw it about a month ago and must say it's pretty vile but the dialogue absolutely ridiculous.
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 15 21:55
I've heard of it, and read that it's basically just a snuff film, but I've never seen it. I'm not big on the whole snuff film idea. I'd rather not be assaulted with images of people being tortured, raped, and all other sorts of vile acts, for an hour and a half straight. I love a good (or even bad) horror film, with some good practical special effects (blood and gore), but I draw the line there. I just don't think I could get any enjoyment out of watching that kind of stuff, unless it had a really good story to go with it.

That being said...Perhaps I'll check it out one day, just out of curiosity.

Thanks for commenting! :)

Great list. I have seen most of these films but had never heard that term before. If I were you I would pass on the August Underground Movies. They are not real snuff but they have no redeeming qualities.

this is a nice list, thanks

I read from wikipedia about video nasties and find this:

"Shogun Assassin and Xtro have often been mistakenly listed as video nasties, though neither film ever appeared on any official DPP lists."

@Kurkkuharja
Ah! Thank you for pointing that out. Will fix.
