* ''TheYoungOnes'' had an episode called "Nasty" where the boys try to watch a video nasty only to be interrupted by a South African driving instructor/vampire [[spoiler: really Harry the Bastard who works down the video shop]], played by Alexei Sayle. The episode also features the Damned singing the song that provides the title quote on this article. The Nasty in question is the hopefully fictional, and certainly not on the list, ''Sex With The Headless Corpse Of The Virgin Astronaut''.

As time has gone by and society become more liberal about horror movies, many films from the list have been resubmitted to the BBFC. In some cases they were passed with no difficulties, but a few of the more extreme cases were passed only with cuts, only for them to resubmitted again a few years later and released completely uncut in the present day (the most notorious and high-profile case of this being ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft''). Only a handful of films from the list still remain banned, but usually because they remain so obscure that nobody has bothered to resubmit them. If you are able to find and view these films (most used to be incredibly rare and obscure; what were once considered holy-grails amongst collectors are now widely available in this age of DVD) you will probably be shocked at how tame ''some'' of them are compared to today's standards what with films the likes of ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' and ''Film/{{Hostel}}''. In many cases, some films would have been tame even by ''those'' days' standards; often films were convicted of obscenity based on the ContemptibleCover[[note:eg. the notorious cover of ''SS Experiment Camp'' showing a topless woman crucified head-down[[/note]] or the GoryDeadlyOverkillTitleOfFatalDeath alone. The featuring of the words "[[CannibalFilm Cannibal]]", "[[ZombieApocalypse Zombie]]" or anything associated with [[{{Nazisploitation}} Nazis]] in the title of a film almost guaranteed inclusion on the list. Other films though, such as ''Cannibal Holocaust'', retain the power to shock and horrify.
