Welcome back to 1983 (or so). News reaches us that the Irish Film Classification Office has refused to issue a certificate for the DVD re-issue of first-generation video nasty I Spit on Your Grave. They have, in other words, banned the thing. Does this mean that I am now in possession of an illegal item? Will the thought police be breaking in the door at any moment to drag me away? I’ve tried flushing it down the lavatory, but it won’t go. Maybe they’ll issue an amnesty and criminals such as myself will get a chance to dispose of these dangerous, corrupting items in a safe environment. Plus there’s the worry that, just by having the thing in my house, I will be transformed into a homicidal maniac.

I know. I’ll just keep repeating the mantra.┬áIt’s only a movie. It’s only a movie. It’s only a movie. Oh, hang on. That was Last House on the Left. Wasn’t it?
