“Imagine a place lined with boxes, each one with the power to deprave and corrupt you. A parade of garish colours and an offering that will lead you to, potentially, become a deviant. Would you pick one up? Would you peek inside and see what horrors were contained within?” Journalist and Video Nasties Podcast host Christopher A. Brown invites you to take a look at the 72 films banned in the UK in the 1980s and placed on the video nasties list. Read cuttings from the media scare stories, find out the stories behind the moviemakers and delve further into the grimy world of the decade’s greatest moral panic. Each of the films is covered in detail, along with trivia, reviews, expert opinion and a taste of the controversial scenes each contain. Then once you’re done head back to your old video shop and ask again what’s under the counter.
