SEE NO EVIL chronicles the phenomenal rise of video culture and its alleged associations with criminal activity.

A means to improve home entertainment domesticates the cinema. Big budget film titles from major companies — who are initially reticent about home-viewing and video hire — compete with independent releases on small labels, quickly saturating the market with all manner of diverse product. The glut and ready accessibility of sex and violence leads quickly to condemnation, ‘concern for the children’ and ultimately the Video Recordings Act and the ‘banning’ of films.

Containing studies of murder cases supposedly influenced by films, interviews with the ‘video underground’ and insightful commentary on contentious movies, SEE NO EVIL is an exhaustive and startling overview of Britain’s ‘video nasty’ culture.

David Kerekes and David Slater are co-authors of Killing For Culture.
