The Movie: Oliver Stone’s divisive satire following husband-and-wife team Mickey Knox (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis). They’re turned into stars by the media as their thrill-seeking ways – they like to kill people – become an international sensation.
The Violence: Sexual assault, bottles in faces, mass murder – Natural Born Killers really lives up to its title. Its shocking opening is the clincher; Mickey and Mallory play eeny, meeny, miny, moe, burying bullets in the customers of a roadside diner.
Reaction: Stone cut four minutes of footage in order to appease the MPAA, which earned it an R rating. Ireland were having none of it, though, banning the film entirely.
In the UK, the film was delayed while the BBFC investigated reports that copycat murders were taking place in the US and France. It’s been accused of inspiring the Colombine High School Massacre.
