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."

If those scenes are anything like Saw… I might just poop myself. (In a good way) It sucks that they cut them out though…

If it’s like Saw then it fits the theme perfectly! I mean if they had to delete those parts what’s the point?!

Before everyone freaks out a whole lot more…They cut PARTS not whole scenes. They probably did takes and parts that they had in previous cuts (as in when they make films they will put together multiple sequences of the same scenes to show the director/producers/actors and then change them a lot over time) and what is most likely what happened was the actor saw the dailies (the rough footage of the day’s takes) and then saw the sequence put together (and it was probably the umpteenth time it was edited together) and felt it was really edited down. And was all “whoa”. But he said they cut bits out. Not all of it. And if they cut bits out because it was becoming to “Saw” like then there’s a good reason. You can’t have creepy slasher/hostel/torture film sequences in films that are for the most part tailored towards families and tweens. So before you flip out over three sentences lets all breathe and wait till the film comes out.

I hope that they didn’t cut too much off the Bellatrix/Hermione torture scene in Malfoy Manor!

I love the fact that they filmed all the dark stuff, i think thats the best way to do it, go as far as you can while filming and then when you come to edit it together, you can either increase or decrease the dark stuff.
And the reports from the test screening said the film was already very very dark, so THERES NO NEED TO PANIC!

@hallowman – you keep posting crap like that and people will fully and completely ignore you. And report you for abusing the comment section. Stop being a 12 year old. And if you are a 12 year old, grow up a little. Not everyone reads through 50 plus comments before putting in their two cents.

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

But cutting scenes is never good, what I meant is using fake blood for the seen!
