This film was originally shown to the BBFC for advice. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive an '18' classification but that the requested '15' could be achieved by making some reductions throughout the film. In particular, the BBFC suggested (i) that the bloody spray in the slashing open of a throat in the opening sequence should be removed, (ii) that focus on a badly burned partially naked woman, crying out in pain, should be reduced or removed, (iii) that the protracted bloody detail when a woman's jaw is ripped apart be reduced, and (iv) that, after scissors have been pressed against the neck of a young girl, the sight of scissors being drawn across the neck causing a larger bloody wound be removed. When the finished version of the film was submitted, edits had been made, reducing the strength of the stronger moments sufficiently for the content in the film to be allowable under BBFC Guidelines at '15'. A version comparable with the original advice viewing, with stronger moments restored, has subsequently been classified '18' on DVD.
