Video Nasties – Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotapes (18)

Prepare to be corrupted and depraved once more with this guide to the Video Nasties phenomenon – one of the most extraordinary and scandalous eras in the history of British film. Taking in the explosion of home video, the erosion of civil liberties, the introduction of draconian censorship measures, hysterical press campaigns and the birth of many careers born in blood and videotape, West’s documentary also reflects on the influence this peculiar era still exerts on us today. Ahead of a new blu-ray release this autumn, director Jake West and producer Marc Morris’s definitive documentary on the whole Video Nasties period is back on the big screen at Paracinema.  

This screening will be introduced by Director Jake West and Producer Marc Morris.
