Congrats Brits! You too can be disgusted by Human Centipede 2 as ban now lifted

Oct. 6, 2011by: Mike Sampson

If you'll recall, back in June the British Board of Film Classification rejected THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 meaning the film could not be released in any form in the UK. Well fans of gross-out cinema rejoice: the ban has been lifted and you'll soon be able to see Tom Six's ass-to-mouth tour de force!

To be clear, the BBFC didn't just reverse course - Six was required to trim 2 minutes and 37 seconds from the film including "scenes of sexual and sexualized violence, sadistic violence and humiliation, and a child presented in an abusive and violent context." Oh that's it?

[SPOILER ALERT] Among the scenes cut include, and I quote the BBFC who has a way with words, "a man masturbating with sandpaper around his penis...graphic sight of forced defecation into and around other people's mouths...a man with barbed wire wrapped around his penis raping a woman..." and much more. [END SPOILERS]

Yeah, but that's the best part! I mean, I was no fan of the film but if you're going to sit through this movie, wouldn't you want to watch the balls out version? That's really all the film has going for it - that it's a completely over-the-top, graphically violent film. Take that out and it's just a shitty horror sequel.

But OK, at least the people of Britain will be allowed to see the film. And at least we don't have to hear about how the film was "banned!!!!" because I'm really sick of that marketing campaign.

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 will actually see release in the UK remains to be seen but will hit theaters in NY and LA this Friday here in the US.

LoL.... UK isn't spared after all

Now Sampson, your paragraph after the spoiler (and the spoiler itself) should have been your review. That was a good direct opinion of the movie. And while I had no interest in seeing the movie, I did want to read about the flick and all the sick shit in the film for a good laugh. But I understand some people (about 3 of them) wanted to see the film and spoilers would have ruined it..... but just saying.

Don't care. Don't want to.

Look, I'm a big horror fan and all. And I like violence in my movies from time to time, like real violence. But there's no way in hell I'm even going to give this piece of shit "film" any of my time. Except for this comment. There's horror, than there's uncomfortable disturbing stuff from Eli Roth and Rob Zombie, then there's this Human Centipede bullshit. You have to be genuinely psychotic and possibly dangerous to society to even have the mindset to direct something like this.

It *wasn't* banned in the UK, it was merely refused a certificate for public screenings by the BBFC.

It was refused a certificate for any showings. Which meant it could not legally be screened in a theater or provided to British citizens via DVD, Blu-ray or digital download. That sounds pretty close to a banning if you ask me. They're actions prohibited anyone from legally viewing the movie.

Whatever, I'm going to watch it, simply because nothing really bothers me anymore since A Serbian Film broke my fucking brain.
