Movie maker Quentin Tarantino is defending sick scenes in his new movie Kill Bill, in which Uma Thurman's comatose character is rented out as a sex toy.

Many people who have seen early clips of the film fear the scenes of rednecks making out with Thurman's character - enigmatically named THE BRIDE - will be too much for audiences.

But Tarantino feels sure he's merely catering to some of his fans' sick imaginations.

He says, "If there was some patient in a coma for four years a total Jane Doe, no-one knows who she is, no-one cares who she is - and she looked like Uma Thurman, I bet you people'd be f***ing her.

"If no one gives a damn - Jane Doe? Yeah, boy."
