The 10 Most Censored 18 Certificate Films Since The British Board of Film "Classification" Became More Relaxed

When the Ferman dictatorship came to an end in 1999 the BBFC quickly became a more open and lenient organisation. These days most of the cuts made by the BBFC are for distributors who want a lower certificate, eg. an uncut 18/15 certificate may be available but the distributor asks for cuts to enable a 15/12 certificate to be given.

However, films continue to be cut for an 18 certificate, sexual violence and material that is deemed to contravene the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937 being the most common cause of BBFC interference at this level of certification, and in some cases films are still refused classification at all, the most recent example being, The Bunny Game (2010).
