The Prohibited Importations Unit (PIU) of Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has determined Bill Zebub's Ravage the Scream Queen to be "obscene", as defined under s. 163(8) of the Criminal Code (see http://laws.justice.gc.ca/eng/C-46/page-4.html#codese:163-ss:_8_); hence it has determined the importation of that movie into Canada to be prohibited under tariff item No. 9899.00.00 of the List of Tariff Provisions set out in the schedule to the Customs Tariff (see http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/trade-commerce/tariff-tarif/menu-eng.html).

Here's a description of Ravage the Scream Queen from MVD Entertainment Group: "Two men find a snuff film and try their hand at filming their own. You will feel 40% sleazier after you watch this. Two men find a DVDr and discover that it is a snuff film. As they debate whether or not the footage is authentic, one of them becomes inspired to make his own movie. They have an endless supply of victims - desperate actresses who will answer any ad, no matter how suspicious. Starring Bob 'Hands Off' Arian and Steve Nebesni as the villains, and an impressive cast of actresses: Rachel Bulisky, Heather Forte, Elena Kagan, Sativa Verte, Kathy Rice, Jordana Leigh, Nikki Sebastian, Elyse Cheri, Kerri Taylor, and many more."

Ravage the Scream Queen is available for order on DVD from Amazon.ca (Amazon.com.ca Inc.).

A pathologist working for Interpol in Austria examined the image above and said he could not rule out the possibility that it depicted an actual assface.

MONTREAL - A Quebec special effects artist charged with corrupting morals has been found not guilty.

Remy Couture received the verdict from the jury on Saturday, after two days of deliberation.


It's a unique case that explores the boundaries of artistic expression and Canadian obscenity laws.

I have to see this. I haven't heard of a horror film breaking obscenity in forever/ But I haven't been able to keep up in Horror/ Exloitation for a long time either.
