Over the years, there were several films that were not allowed to be screened on UK soil. One of these is 'Love Camp 7' released in 1969. It was banned not because of its depiction of the Nazi theme, but due to the abhorrent scenes of abuse performed on women in the hands of their captors.

'Traces of Death' is more of a documentary than a film. It shows countless scenes of real life deaths. It was directed by Damon Fox. Although it is apparently a very popular title in the home video market, it was banned for UK screening. According to the BBFC, the movie has 'no journalistic, educational or other justifying context for the images shown.'

The horror movie 'Texas Chain Saw Massacre' was a classic such that when the 'The Texas Vibrator Massacre' was made, it was obviously a rehash of the former. In fact, it was nothing more than a pornographic horror movie and the BBFC thought the same.
