BBFC 18 (Fox)
Comparison between the cut UK VHS released by Fox Video (BBFC 18)
and the uncut US DVD released by Blue Underground (R-Rated)
The second part of Dario Argento's "The Three Mothers Trilogy" faced some problems when it was released in the UK - for the VHS release, the distributers had to cut the movie in order to receive a BBFC 18 rating. Once again the censors didn't bother with the violence against human beings but instad Fox had to cut out some violence against animals which is still forbidden by law in the UK. Still, the cuts are unacceptable - it's more than obvious that the cat (see first cut in the report) is not real; the second cut is even more ridiculous.
By now, the movie was reviewed by the BBFC which resulted in a BBFC 18 rating for the uncensored version. From then on, Arrow Video started releasing the uncensored version on both Blu-Ray and DVD (with a fine looking cover btw).
At the beginning of the UK version you see the 20th Century Fox logo.

You don't see the cat eating the mouse; instead, there's a cut to Mark.
