No Human Centipede II in UK
Once again the British have proven to be a prude and conservative country. We all remember the best horror movie from 2009, The Human Centipede (First Sequence). Screamfest LA critics chose it as best picture that year. Now Dutch director Tom Six went on another absinth fuelled rampage in his sick mind and came up with a sequence, The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence). But because of “fears it poses a ‘real risk’ to cinemagoers” the grandfathers at the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) have banned the movie from screening in the UK. If reactions to the first movie, like from renowned movie critic Robert Ebert “It is what it is and occupies a world where the stars don’t shine”, is anything to go by, the sequel should be a good conversation piece at the serial killer conventions. We wonder how long it will take for the shock of these movies to wear off. Maybe more disturbing then the movies themselves is that people get used to the ideas proposed in the films and can think about them without gagging. It is one of the ways humanity functions in spite of the terrors it creates. In the end we get used to these ideas so that we can get on with our lives and function as a human race. TRAILER!
