Video Vandals

I pre-ordered Arrow's limited edition Videodrome Blu earlier today, and dug out my old UK VHS edition for old times sake. Slightly different artwork from the more commonly seen design of James Woods dissolving into TV static, here it looks like he's being pulled into the Time Tunnel. The CIC sleeve is quite interesting for a rare admission made on the backside of the cover: "This film received an '18' certificate for cinema release. The version of the film comprised in the videocassette has been further edited at the discretion of CIC Video". I'm thinking CIC were nervous of the film ending up on a DPP list of outlawed titles ?
