    Woooow xD! I didn't think anybody would go there. Banning the movie does strike me as silly however.

    Not really. If you look at the films that are banned they are mostly "Horror" flicks. I'd say that the "Holocaust" was probably the biggest "Horror Story" in human history. Wouldn't you?

    In Germany, any Nazi imagery or allusion is illegal, and I can only assume the spelling 'semetary' has something to do with it. A WWE event 'Elimination Chamber' is named 'No Escape' there because of that law. Perhaps it exists under a different title?

    At the risk of sounding like a dumb ass what is the significance to Semetary? Googled the word there but all that popped up was people asking about the miss-spelling in the book.

    I suppose it can be rooted in some form of atonement. Upon initially seeing the list, it just occurred to me is all. Not trying to start an argument. FWIW, I'm of German descent and still have family there. We generally avoid the subject for obvious reasons. I apologize if my comment offended anyone. Not my intent, just popped into my head at the time.

    You wouldn't know though, it could just be a totally different reason, I'm pretty sure that Germany tends to ban a lot of video games etc. Some country's are just like that

    They're very self conscious about the level of violence they allowed to be shone, either as atonement like Merlin said or just plain self-image.

    Since the Sematary was first started in the early 1900s or before one can assume the sign was made by a child or semi-illiterate adult.

    Yeah well that was the point wasn't it? The sign was child made and spelt. Damn that was a creepy story.

    A lot of violent videos were banned in various places in Europe over the years. In Britain, they were called Video Nasties. Even music videos were banned by the BBC for any number of reasons. So it's not unusual that a movie where a little boy turns homicidal might be considered objectionable.
