REAL LIFE HORROR SHOW!
Forget the obviously faked deaths in 'Faces of Death', 'Autopsy
the Documentary' features extremely controversial real-life scenes
from the pathologists slab.
The graphic footage in this DVD prompted unprecedented
warnings of 'sustained medical horror' from British censors. The
60 minute scene shows Dr Thomas Noguchi - dubbed 'coroner to the
stars' because of his autopsies on icons like Marilyn Monroe and
Robert F Kennedy - pulling the covers off his profession by performing
a full autopsy for the camera.
Footage shows the former Los Angeles County coroner removing and
cutting up organs including the unidentified woman's brain. He has
said of his decision to be involved in the film: "The public
has the right to know what we do"
'Autopsy the documentary' is the first time a full
autopsy has ever been released on DVD in the UK. Last year the country
was in uproar over the full autopsy performed live in the UK by
Professor Von Hagan. When broadcast on Channel 4, despite numerous
warnings to viewers about content it drew more than 150 complaints.
Yet more than a million people tuned in to watch it.
A spokeswoman for the BBFC said: "Just because
something is shocking doesn't mean it can't be classified"
Othercontentious videos which have caused outrage at the BBFC include
Executions which was given an 18-certificate in 1995 but withdrawn
from sale by some retailers.
