Banned Horror Films, List of 10 Suggested Films to See

Banned Horror Films Overview

Since I started watching horror films, my taste has grown from kiddie teen screams and boogeymen to the sick and depraved. But it’s all in good fun and entertainment. Some of the best horror films have been banned. Not hard to understand why with some of them, but that doesn’t take away from the art of the films. Here are 10 awesome horror films that were banned at some point.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Synopsis:

Five friends visiting their grandfather’s house in the country are haunted and terrorized by a chainsaw-wielding killer and his family of grave-robbing cannibals.

Banned: UK, West Germany, Iceland, France

For many years, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was banned and criticized as a “nasty video”. First banned in Australia for “excessive violence”. However, top directors came together and voted it as “the greatest horror film ever”. Among these directors: John Carpenter, Wes Craven, John Landis, George Romero, Guillermo del Toro, and Eli Roth. By the late 1990s, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was shown in the UK.
