Human Centipede Sequel Banned, UK Not a Fan
According to AVClub.com, sales of Human Centipede 2 on DVD have been banned in the UK by the BBFC. If one were to be caught selling the sequel to Tom Six’s Human Centipede, they are to be punished under UK law. Talk about a real buzz kill for Six, I guess they don’t really like barbed wire sex or sand paper pleasuring over there; I don’t blame them.
Granted censorship is a little wacky but there is a point to be made here I guess. Personally, I thought Human Centipede the original was bizarre but that was seen as a “typical” horror film so it was allowed to be released. Apparently, Human Centipede 2 takes the whole concept, flips it and makes it downright disturbing. So much so that the BBFC has banned it because they think it “poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers.” I mean masturbating with sandpaper and a barbed wire anal scene seems like something I’d never want to see but I can’t agree with them either because after all, it is a fictitious movie.
