10 Movies Banned Because of Religious Groups
7. Lemora: A Child’s Tale of The Supernatural
Up until the 1980s, the Catholic League of Decency was one of the most influential organized groups of ball aches in the US. They even had their own system of classifications, whose most extreme condemnation was “Morally unobjectionable.” Clearly these guys meant business. The Richard Blackburn 1975 horror movie, Lemora: A Child’s Tale of The Supernatural, was one movie that fell foul of the Bible-loving do-gooders. Featuring pedophilia, lesbianism and incest, plus dabblings with that ol’ Catholic favorite, the occult, we guess it was only a matter of time before theaters wouldn’t touch this movie with a very long stick thanks to pressure from the CLD. It was so denounced that until very recently it was still difficult to find a copy of it anywhere except France. Make of that what you will.
