I was watching the American Werewolf in London, again, the other night and there came a gory scene where the beast rips the head off of the Inspector (right towards the end) and, normally, the take goes on to show the head on the pavement, moving it’s mouth and eyes.
That was CUT!
I saw one of the Alien movies on one of the other premium channels where one pays extra to get to watch movies full length with no commercials and discovered that pieces had been brutally chopped out of it!
What give here? These stations are not supposed to be censored! I’ve watched many movies of strong content on the regular channels and found them so heavily chopped up that I turned them off, but I expected that. (Look how they mauled up ALIENS on ENCORE. They shortened it by nearly 30 minutes!)
Besides, they showed all sorts of other gory or sexy or bad language scenes in this movie, but they chopped out that little bit! I hate it when they do that! What is with this sudden trend? There are no commercials on these stations so they don’t need to hack it up to squeeze about 100 of those annoying things in.
Censorship? There should not be for what I’m paying to have that channel!
