Customs Seizure – Films

The titles covered on this page are a small selection of movies that have reportedly been confiscated by Australian Border Force (FKA Australian Customs and Border Protection Service).

The full list, which includes such titles as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and THE NEW YORK RIPPER (1982), can be found on our Film Censorship Timeline under the ‘Customs issues’ heading.

The information has been compiled from a variety of publicly available sources such as forum and social media posts, fanzines and websites. The remaining alerts have been reported directly to us by readers of the site. Any additions, no matter how old, are welcome.

This list has been assembled due to the lack of a publicly available database of seized titles. It is designed to document those that have had issues and so may need to be avoided. It is in no way meant to encourage anyone to import a prohibited item. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information and take no responsibility for errors.

There are two reported customs confiscations of AFTERMATH.

1998 August – VHS.

VHS – Waken Video

The reasons for the second were detailed in the seizure notice.

August 1998
Please find attached a Notice of Seizure for one video tape titled ‘Aftermath – Special Edition’ which was imported by you. This item is listed in Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulations as an item that :

‘describe , depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be imported.’

Importation of this item is prohibited unless a permission, in writing, to import the item has been granted by the Attorney-General.

Details about the procedures and legislation relating to the seizure of goods are outlined on the reverse of the Notice.

…seized under subsection 203b(2) of the customs act 1901 by an authorised person being goods suspected on reasonable grounds to be special forfeited goods.

Persuant to regulations 4A(1)(1A)(a)of the customs (prohibited imports) regulations the items are prohibited imports and are therefore forfeited under section 229(1)(b)of the customs act 1901.

Buried at MUFF

In July 2001, NEKROMANTIK was one of eight ‘banned’ movies dropped from the second Melbourne Underground Film Festival.

See database entry for SALÒ, OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM (1975) for more information about this case.

Pay-TV screening

On 29 July 2016, NEKROMANTIK was shown uncut on the World Movies pay-TV channel.

July 29, 2016
World Movies Adult, Selected nights at 8.30pm
From the seductive to the shocking- tune in every weekend night for your favourite adults only films. WM Adult is three nights a week- every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, where there will be even more of the scandalous, sexy films you love.

Coming up in July.
Friday 29 July 8.30pm (Australian Television Premiere)
NEKROMANTIK (Germany, 1987)
Graphic, low-budget gore-shocker about Rob and Betty, a couple of ordinary necrophiles who apparently don’t mind if their dead sexual partners are not so fresh. Rob’s job affords him the opportunity to bring home corpses and the odd body part. When he loses his job, he loses Betty, and Rob’s life gets really bizarre.

– World Movies

Following the premiere, Media Censorship in Australia posted a letter from the Classification Board in which they responded to questions about the TV screening and the rating history.

August 21, 2016
Thank you for your email of 3 August 2016 in which you enquire about the classification history of NEKROMANTIK and NEKROMANTIK 2.

The Classification Board (the Board) has never classified NEKROMANTIK or NEKROMANTIK 2.

As such, there is no record of a classification decision recorded in the National Classification Database.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection is responsible for administering the Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulations 1956. These Regulations prohibit the importation of ‘objectionable goods’. I would suggest you contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection directly about this matter.

I note your query about the recent airing of NEKROMANTIK by Foxtel. The Classification Board is not responsible for the classification of television content. Content on free-to-air television is classified by the network’s in-house classifiers. Content on subscription television is classified by in-house classifiers. Subscription broadcasters such as Foxtel operate under the 2013 Subscription Broadcast Television Codes of Practice.

As television classifications are made under different classification guidelines to those applied by the Classification Board, and the versions of films broadcast on television may not be the same as the ones that may have been classified by the Classification Board, it is not possible to make meaningful comparisons of classifications given to films across broadcast and other media.

DVD – Season of Mist

In a rare occurrence, the Victorian Postal Operations of the Australian Customs Service submitted it to the OFLC. In November 2002, it was Refused Classification.

This makes it one of the few customs confiscations to have an entry in the National Classification Database.

This was a reissue of the NECROPHAGIA: THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD (1999). The DVD had extra material, hence the ‘UNCUT’ tag on the end.

Further reading

Violent clips are shown from CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and THE BEYOND (1981).

See the separate entries for both these titles in Film Censorship Database No. 1.


Scrapbook

Directed by Eric Stanze / 2000 / USA / IMDb

There is one report of a customs confiscation of SCRAPBOOK.

Early 2000s – DVD.

MUFF screening

In 2004, SCRAPBOOK was shown at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival.

July 2004
Eric Stanze’s low budget shocker (‘True horror is simply what one human being can do to another!’) has polarized viewers and has been compared to cult classics such as Craven’s LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT.

More an essay on conscious cruelty than narrative fiction, a strong central performance by Emily Haack keeps the proceedings anchored and a willingness to cross boundaries maintains interest. Scripter Tommy Biondo, who plays the aggressive Leonard, gives the role his all. Unfortunately, he died before seeing SCRAPBOOK.

Director Stanze has made a slew of low budget, shot-on-video productions and he continues to do so with obvious sincerity.
