Up! / Russ Meyer's Up! (1976)
Director Russ Meyer
Cut Formats Film
Classifications R, Banned
Cut Footage "Deleted footage consists of a rather rough rape sequence, and some heavy sexual violence (a female character being violently kicked/stamped upon)." [M. C. Thomason]
Reason "Up! was refused classification in its uncensored form for local exhibition. A modified R rated version did screen in theatres in the seventies though." [M. C. Thomason]
Uncut Releases Dutch VHS.

 
The Untold Story (1992)
Director Danny Lee
Cut Formats VHS, Film
Classifications R
Cut Footage Rape sequence, about two minute’s worth.
Reason "Yu Enterprises submitted a print that ran 87mins (f), and was I think, the same as the original Hong Kong Category 3 release. The HK censors demanded cuts to the film before it could be released there, so though not the fault of the OFLC, we also got a cut print." [Refused- Classification]
Uncut Releases US DVD, VHS and laserdisc (Tai Seng).
Comments "Big surprise: the film was released locally in a pre-cut version that only deleted 2 mins of footage from the film's appalling rape scene, but was otherwise untouched. There is no Hong Kong DVD release, however the US R1 disc through Tai Seng is about as uncut as the film is ever likely to be exhibited. The Hong Kong laserdisc is as complete as the Tai Seng DVD and VHS. The censored print was awarded an R classification by the OFLC. The uncut print runs 92 mins; the edited version clocks in just under 90 mins." [M. C. Thomason]
