When "The Passion of the Christ" was released, on BBC Radio 5's weekly film review section of Simon Mayo's programme, film reviewer Mark Kermode interviewed the then head of the British Board of Film Classification.
He said that if a film adaptation of the Bible was made - using Scripture as the screenplay, without glossing over events as per past Biblical 'epics' - it wouldn't even be given an 'R-18' rating as per those for private film clubs, or that sold in licenced sex shops. Why?
Because of the unimaginably hideous scenes described in the Bible, such a film based on that - warts & all - would be seized by the police under the Obscene Publications Act.
It took quite a few edits, reframings of certain scenes etc for the "Human Centipede" films to be given '18' ratings by the BBFC.
"Game of Thrones"? It's nothing, compared to the Bible.
At least the "Saw" & Hostel" films have visual effects. Also, Acting. Have you heard of these concepts?!
There are editions of the Bible: for children. It's morality Jim, but not as we know it.
