'Human Centipede II' rejected by the British Board of Film Classification, ruling it 'potentially obscene' while spilling plot details
The British Board of Film Classification announced today it is refusing to give a DVD certificate to horror sequel Human Centipede II (Full Sequence). In its ruling, the BBFC also detailed the plot of the film, which up until now has been shrouded in secrecy.
Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is the sequel to last year’s Human Centipede, in which a mad doctor stitches together three victims to make the monstrous creation of the title. Since its release, the deranged nature of the first film has become fodder for many comedians. Just last night, MTV Movie Awards host Jason Sudeikis joked that the Human Centipede should have been nominated for “Best Kiss.”
In its ruling, the BBFC declared:
In the course of the ruling, the BBFC described the premise of the film, which we won’t reveal here as it is both a spoiler and extremely NSFW.
The British distributor of the DVD has six weeks to appeal the decision. The BBFC noted that, for reasons which are currently unclear, Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has not been submitted for a cinema release in the U.K. Director Tom Six recently told EW that the film would be released here “after the summer.” The film’s U.S. distributors, IFC, declined to comment on the BBFC’s ruling.
