I just rented this movie & haven't watched it yet-will tomorrow...Anyway, the movie claims to be banned in 43 countries without saying which ones or places any evidence to say its actually not. This is the trailer to it which once you watch, you'd know this isn't any regular movie preview on t.v. Anyway, i was wondering if someone can find a real reliable source to say why it is banned in those countries and which ones. thanks

You really need to put a warning in your title about that video.

I couldn't find any info on which countries, if any, it was banned in. It seems to me to be an advertising gimmick.

Wow, I can't wait to see that. It looks like it has the same stance as House of 1000 corpses.

This is a remake of the 1932 movie Freaks. "one of us! one of us!" I doubt it was actually banned in 43 countries. It's just trying to make itself edgier than it needs too. The original was considered weird and obscene back in its day. I think this version is trying to keep that "forbidden" aura about it.

Definitely seems worth checking out tho. I enjoyed the original.

Ehhh, I don't really enjoy extreme gore unless the movie actually has a smart way of incorporating it into the movie; like with the Saw series.

the movie was based on "Freaks" which I have also seen. Im sure it was an advertising scheme-just wanted to see if any1 could find where that statement came from and if there's any truth to that rumor

What the hell I just watched someone get their tongue cut off and then their face surgically removed while they were still alive looks like an awesome movie I think I'll stick with the original my imagination is good enough that I really don't need to see that sh*t so blatantly. Messed~!
