72 Films were banned in Britain in a moral panic in the 1980's. The truth, the lies, the defenders, the accusers words are here. Seriously, definitive is this time really true for a DVD set.

Includes:
Video Nasties (2010 documentary by Jake West)

Disc One contains trailers and intros for all 39 titles that were successfully prosecuted in UK courts and deemed liable to deprave and corrupt. These included: Absurd, Cannibal Holocaust, The Driller Killer, I Spit on Your Grave, Nightmares in a Damaged Brain, Snuff & Zombie Flesh-Eaters.

Disc Two presents the 33 titles that were initially banned, but then subsequently acquitted and removed from the DPP's list. These included: Death Trap, Deep River Savages, The Evil Dead, Human Experiments, The Toolbox Murders & Zombie Creeping Flesh.

Both discs can be viewed either as a non-stop trailer show, or with newly-filmed introductions from a wide range of acclaimed media academics and notable genre journalists. Each disc is preceded by a brief introduction by cult horror presenter Emily Booth.

Disc Three contains Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotape, an era-defining documentary featuring interviews with filmmakers Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust), Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday), Christopher Smith (Severance, Black Death) and MP Graham Bright, as well as rare archive footage featuring James Ferman (director of the BBFC 1975-1999) & Mary Whitehouse. Taking in the explosion of home video, the erosion of civil liberties, the introduction of draconian censorship measures, hysterical press campaigns and the birth of many careers born in blood and videotape, West’s documentary also reflects on the influence this peculiar era still exerts on us today.

Extras include a gallery of original video company idents and extensive gallery of lurid cover art for every video nasty.

So you get a full length documentary, 72 trailers, with 72 intros (ranging from 3 minutes to 10 minutes), 50 minutes of old school dodgy video tape company logos, image galleries, and for limited edition (to 5000), art cards.

I have screeners for this, apparently I contacted them after the last full versions had gone out to reviewers. I'm about halfway through the documentary and it is pretty good so far. BTW, the LE is sold out already.

Dammit. This is the first I've heard of this and I want it!

So is the only difference between the regular edition and the limited edition the art cards and LE numbering?

Yes, that is the only difference.
