Banned by cable! And you can get it!

Earlier this year Showtime yanked an episode of its Masters Of Horror series after the pay-cable channel's execs practically blew beets during a screening. Directed by Takashi Miike, a legendarily depraved Japanese director (tickets to his film Ichi the Killer came with a free barf bag), it reportedly contained graphic scenes of child abuse, sexual torture, deformed syphilitic dwarves and aborted fetuses. Now it's been issued on DVD under the title Imprint, and for just $16.98 you can blow your own beets, right there in your living room. If you want to know a little more before investing your life savings, here's a story I wrote in January when Showtime canned Imprint.
