Censuring The Censors

Child's Play 3

This disc is not censored. There has been some speculation that this film was banned in England because it allegedly inspired the killing of a child named James Bulger. This is only partially true - the film was never actually banned as such, but most video retailers and television networks refused to carry it. The version we have on this disc is exactly the same as that which was released in this country on VHS, but there are apparently several scenes that were cut from that version of the film which appear in the USA Network version. There is some speculation that those scenes will be restored to the Region 1 DVD when someone gets around to releasing it.
