A poster for horror movie CREEP that shows the bloody hand of a murdered passenger on a London Underground train has been banned from all subway stations in the British capital.

Although the artwork for the FRANKA POTENTE-starring film has been approved for exhibition at all over-ground London stations, Underground bosses have deemed the poster "too gory".

Producer JULIE BAIN says, "It is a bit ludicrous. This is fiction, not a documentary.

"The Underground have posters for horror films all the time. The thinking was because it was a bloody hand, people looking at it would be worried.

"The funny thing is they were very, very helpful about the filming which lasted about three weeks."
