Students Watch ‘Human Centipede 2’ in Classroom…and Nobody Knows Why!

In one of the most bizarre and random stories of the year, students in a Tennessee classroom partook in a viewing of Tom Six’s The Human Centipede Part 2 (read my review), according to various reports.

Superintendent Verna Ruffin confirmed the news to The Jackson Sun that students at Jackson Central-Merry High School had viewed Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) after a parent called the paper to report the incident.

Here’s the kicker, nobody know why this film was shown in a school. In fact, Ruffin would not say why the students had seen the movie, or whether the teacher in that classroom had been suspended or otherwise disciplined.

“The matter has been addressed,” Ruffin told USA Today. “It’s inappropriate and unacceptable.”

While Six’s The Human Centipede became part of pop culture, the sequel upped the ante tenfold as a response to criticism of the vulgar nature of the first film. The sequel, released in 2011, is so vile that it’s been banned in some countries. In the film, a depraved mama’s boy (Laurence R. Harvey) goes on a killing and collecting spree to recreate the experiment portrayed in The Human Centipede (First Sequence).

While the film felt more like an attack on critics, Six says there’s more social commentary at hand:

The Jackson Sun obtained a copy of the letter sent to parents from Jackson Central-Merry’s principal two days after the incident, USA Today adds.

“I understand that on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, your student may have inadvertently viewed inappropriate content in a JCM classroom,” the letter stated. “This occurrence is inconsistent with our Mission and Vision at Jackson Central Merry.”

The letter does not mention the title of the film.

“I have investigated the situation and talked to those involved,” the letter read. “Immediate action has been taken to assure that there will be no further occurrences.”

The British Board of Film Classification only granted the movie an 18 certificate, the rough equivalent of a NC-17 rating in the United States, after extensive cuts were made, according to the organization’s website.

According to the British Board of Film Classification, the movie’s central focus “is the sexual arousal of this character at the idea and later the spectacle of the total degradation, humiliation, mutilation, torture, rape and murder of his naked victims.”

Ruffin said she did not know how much of the movie the students saw or how many students were present, the site concluded.

  • shawn lawson

    Lucky lil bastards. I remember spanish class and we were gonna watch Selena on vhs. So, i recorded gory scenes from Bride of Chucky, Blade, Dead Alive, etc and stole the Selena sticker from my sis’ copy, slapped it on the blank tape. We only got like a min into it before she rushed and shut it off. Wish had balls to record porn, but i was that one class clown who would have got caught in heartbeat!

    I don’t know if I’d go quite so far as to say THC is a part of pop culture. Less so then, say, Two Girls One Cup, which spawned all those reaction videos.

    “Tom Six,” one suspects, has got a serious scat fetish and made a film in which he wallows in it, while masquerading as the auteur of a body horror/cultural satire.

  • Meisha’s Taint

    Shit I had to watch “Where the Red Fern Grows” and “Of Mice and Men” when I was in school. My how things have changed for the better

  • AdamX

    I assume this teacher wanted to give a special middle finger before he/she quit,

  • Metal-Frank

    I was in High school from 94-99. Through that time, we watched Texas Chainsaw in English class and had to write an essay on it, we watched Dead Alive, Evil Dead 2, Videodrome, Oasis of the Zombie, and a few others I can’t remember in Media English class… we also made a movie about a fat super hero who goes around and saves the nerds from having their butts kicked by the cool kids… within that we brought a gun, chainsaw, and hunting knife to the school as weapons and I still got an A in the class for doing so. Times have changed.

    • Mister Sinister

      Its the sissy ass millennial generation I’m surprised that they havent re introduced nap time for high schoolers and time to reflect. Yes, times have certainly changed

    • Ted C

      and stuff.

  • G3n3tiX

    WOW, we watched “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” in school. Those were the days.

    • byeforever

      This is just a different kind of chocolate factory movie.

      • G3n3tiX

        lol..

  • Ted C

    It’s stunning and sad that our society has sunk so low, become so depraved, so immoral that something like this was even made and is considered by some entertainment.

  • Evan3

    Tom Six never misses an opportunity for self-promotion. I both respect and hate that.

  • Synvara

    sick.disgusting and hopefully the school gets sued for this. here, it would.

  • scaryclown

    There is nothing about this that says to me that the movie was shown to the class by a teacher. From reading the letter, etc, some students might have “inadvertently” seen the movie. Seems to me that someone was probably watching it on a tablet or phone and showed it to other kids in class. Way for the media to exaggerate. Call the news! Protect the kids!
