Snatcher Scenes in "Deathly Hallows" Described as "Really, Really Dark"

Nick Moran (Scabior) has commented on the Snatcher scenes in "Deathly Hallows", saying that they got so intense that some parts had to be cut:

"The scenes I did were really, really dark, really, really dark, but when I went to see them they cut some of the worst bits out, and I was talking to producer David Heyman, saying, 'Oh no, why's that gone?' He said, apparently it was like watching Saw," Nick told Absolute Radio DJ Christian O'Connell.

Moran also spoke briefly about the efforts taken towards keeping the script secret:

"I can't really give too much away - it's hilarious, because your script has a watermark in it," he recalled.
"It says a number, which is on every page, so that if you lose it, everyone knows it was you. So it's all top secret."

Great. Why did they have to cut them? They could have made it less dark then

but i hope they add them in the dvd for deleated scenes, i do not care wether it is horrible or wether it is not, but in the book it was dark, too, and when they think, we are too weak to watch it, they are wrong. and beside i#ve already watched saw and i’m 15!!!!! ;(

I don’t hope they cut off to must, even if I don’t like dark stuff.
I don’t like it in my real life or in movies (smiles), but it’s a importance part of these stories, so …

But oh november come on, come now!

Dang! I would have loved to see them anyway! Now, the question is, what scenes did they cut? I have a couple ideas…. Too bad, though. I would have wanted to see them in the movie! Hopefully they’re in the deleted scenes…

Just a thought…it’s possible that the interpretation of the scenes from the book were a bit too much for the audience and that the producers and directors felt it brought a different feel to the overall tone. I know we all envision certain scenes when we read the books, but if they’ve taken them too far (into the “Saw” and horror/gore genre), then they may have thought that cutting them was appropriate. I’m sure scenes are cut in all types of movies, it just doesn’t get press the way certain movies do. If it makes it to the DVD, that’s cool. If it doesn’t, there must have been a reason for it.
