Yup!Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Due to the fact that the movie is “sexually violent and potentially obscene,” it can not and will not be distributed in theaters or sold on DVD ANYwhere in the UK.
The BBFC has just announced that “The Human Centipede 2: The Full Sequence” will not be allowed to be released anywhere in the UK.
The new movie revolves around a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD copy of the HUMAN CENTIPEDE movie, and imagines putting the “centipede” into practice. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The reasons seem somewhat justified, especially with the graphic descriptions the BBFC gives about the film.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You could read those here, since they are really graphic, but one example is
* A scene early in the film shows the main character masturbating with sandpaper wrapped around his penis while he watches a DVD of the original “Human Centipede” film.”
Either way, director Tom Six was not too happy with the ruling, and personally responded, saying:
“Thank you BBFC for putting spoilers of my movie on your website and thank you for banning my film in this exceptional way. Apparently I made an horrific horror-film, but shouldn’t a good horror film be horrific? My dear people it is a f****cking MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not. If people can’t handle or like my movies they just don’t watch them. If people like my movies they have to be able to see it any time, anywhere also in the UK.”
Well then…that was angry.
I guess the real question is what do YOU think?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Is a movie just a movie, or is the level of senseless violence and grotesque images just as bad for violence as graphic sex is for love scenes?
