    Is it possible that the Eureka disc is cut due to violence imposed on a rubber rat? Haven't watched this in forever and don't currently have access to my old DVD, but it seemed like there is a moment where the head bad guy is getting ready to eat or "wring out" a rat, then they chastely cut away.

    I can't conclusively answer your question but it is curious that the BBFC doesn't list a new submission of the film for 2020. According to them, the film was last submitted and rated in 2002, 18 years ago, when UK censorship was quite a bit more strict than it is now:

    https://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/mr-vampire-1985

    They also claim it was passed without cuts but that is never 100% trustworthy since there's always a possibility that the UK distributor pre-cut the film before submission to save costs of resubmitting a film that was refused classification. Only way we can be sure is if someone can compare a HK release with the new BD.

    Appreciate the response—pretty sure I’m just being alarmist.

    I can check my DVD if you'd like; just give me a time stamp of where the rat scene occurs.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    Turns out it’s right before the 85-minute mark on the Blu-ray.

    Try comparing this (someone on Blu-Ray forum said their old DVD looked exactly like this) with the BD.

    I checked my DVD and he just grabs the rat and puts it up to his mouth. It cuts away before he chomps on it.
