36 Movies That Were Ridiculously Banned Around the World


The history of film is littered with movies that were banned for explicit scenes of excessive violence or gratuitous sex. But sometimes films are banned for the most arbitrary of reasons. It can be because of whatever is trending that month (BDSM! Horrifying anthropomorphic turtles that are also ninjas!), or it can be that the government of certain countries are terrified of time travel. These banned movies were kept from audiences for some seriously ridiculous reason, and most of the time, it was because whoever was in control of the censorship board was just a total square.

Speaking of squares, rumor has it that in 1918 all comedies were banned in Manitoba because it was believed they would make the populous too frivolous. In hindsight, the notion of a film making the citizens of a providence run wild with frivolity seems naive. Especially after viewing some of the films on this list of movies that were banned even for ridiculous reasons.

Across the globe films from The Interview to The Wild One (starring Marlon Brando), and even ET have been censored for everything from an intent to incite anarchy to the possibility of a film having a negative impact on the film industry of another country. When it comes to movies, the rest of the world does not play around! Check out this list of movies that were banned across the globe and head to the comments section to let us know if there are any internationally banned films that we missed or if you think there’s a movie listed here that should definitely be locked away in a vault forever.
