Warner halts release of violent video

The video release of the controversial film Natural Born Killers has been suspended indefinitely by the distributors Warner Home Video in the wake of the massacres at Dunblane and in Tasmania. It will not be released until director Oliver Stone's ultra-violent film has been re-evaluated by the British Board of Film Classification.

However, the company knows the Board cannot review the controversial decision in February to grant the video an 18-certificate. The BBFC has no power to review classification decisions made after 3 November, 1994, under the terms of the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act.
