Re: Suicide Club
Don't be too sure. In their recent guidelines revision it was decided to take a harder line on any depictions of suicide. So if this film has any detailed depictions of acts of sucide, then I most certainly think the BBFC will have a problem with it. Hence the fairly inoffensive Rules of Attraction had the suicide scene trimmed by the BBFC and slapped with an 18 certificate.

A cut was required to a scene in which a teenage girl slits her wrists, on the grounds that the technique used is not widely known and is potentially more likely to result in death than the more common method, in line with the Video Recordings Act 1984, and BBFC Guidelines and Policy
