It landed on the Video Nasty list of the U.K. and was also banned in Brazil, Chile, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, and West Germany mostly for extreme violence and sadistic content. The film itself, for those who don’t know, follows a group of five young adult in which two siblings are visiting the grave of their grandfather after reports of grave robbing have broken out.
