Police Raid UK Blockbuster Because of a Horror Film

serbian_film_dvdcover.jpg Apparently police in Northampton raided a local Blockbuster last week and seized a copy of the gross-out/pseudo-political shocker A Serbian Film. The raid was due to a complaint from a disturbed customer who claimed that the film contained child abuse. No evidence or suggestion yet that the "disturbed customer" was a producer pulling a publicity stunt, but we'll see. In any case, Blockbuster has temporarily yanked the film from their shelf, though the confiscated copy has since been returned. Said the police: "It has been established as a legitimate copy of the film that has been approved for distribution by the BBFC." Best of all, this was the censored version.
