Films That Are Banned In The UK: Women In Cellblock 9 (1977)

Women In Cellblock 9, aka Frauen für Zellenblock 9, aka Tropical Inferno, is a 1970s Swiss film from the interestingly named Jesus Franco. The film, which was awarded certificates back in 1978 in the US, Canada and Australia, was banned in the UK because one of the actresses in the picture was just 16 at the time, and was involved in one of the many, sexually violent scenes.

Revolving around a South American jungle prison during a revolution, Women In Cellblock 9, remains banned in the UK to this day after being resubmitted in 2004. The decision of the board was never appealed.
