Director Michael Winner once said of this movie: "From caveman days to today, there have always been violent times. You cannot say the Middle Ages weren't violent, before television or films. So where do you put the blame then - oil paintings and books?"
Nirvana, you want a bit?

The original UK cinema and video versions made use of tamer alternative/outtake footage to ease over the massive censorship cuts imposed by the UK censor. This includes an alternative shot of the bedroom rape of the maid (which masks female frontal nudity visible in the uncut version) as well as cutaways to Jiver and Nirvana waiting in the next room. The shot used of the maid after she has been killed, is also different, again masking full frontal nudity. This unique footage does not appear in any other version of the film apart from the UK video, it is absent from recent UK DVD release which was taken from the American R rated version of the film.
