Eureka Entertainment’s shock-horror The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence), which was banned from UK distribution in April by the British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC) has now been passed with an 18 certificate after a number of cuts.
Ian Sadler, Sales Director for Eureka Entertainment, Bounty Films’ UK distributor says they were able to “produce a very viable cut of the film which will both excite and challenge its fans,” adding that “Naturally we have a slight disappointment that we have had to make cuts, but we feel that the storyline has not been compromised and the level of horror has been sustained.”
The BBFC is a despicable group of people who are inflicting censorship on this planet. It’s one thing to slap an X or NC-17 on a product, it’s another to completely ban it. I’m sorry, but I’m an adult and don’t need a bunch of assholes telling me what I can and can’t see. Dicks.
Dates for a UK theatrical and DVD release will be announced early next week. Those people should probably just pick up the domestic release…
The film tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film in the series and who imagines putting the ‘centipede’ idea [in which humans are attached to each other anus to mouth] into practice.
In June, the board had deemed that Tom Six’s horror sequel “posed risk of harm to viewers.” (A.S.S.H.O.L.E.S.)
Six has promised a third film in the Centipede series, which he said would make the second episode “look like a Disney film.”
