Abstract or description

In the USA, in 1976, theatrical screenings of Michael and Roberta Findlay’s Snuff
triggered a month-long FBI investigation into whether or not the film depicted an
actual murder in its final scene.1 It was therefore almost inevitable that the film’s
eventual release in the more conservative British market would be problematic.
