Remember that big to do about The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence being banned in the UK? Well, that’s not the case anymore as the flick has gone through more alterations than Chaz Bono.
According to Empire Online the film’s received an 18-rating from the BBFC. Ian Sadler, Eureka’s sales director, said, “We are really pleased that after nearly 4 months of detailed discussion and debate, we have been able to reach an agreement with the BBFC and to produce a very viable cut of the film which will both excite and challenge its fans. 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.”
Apparently the 32 cuts amount to about 2 minutes, 37 seconds in total, but clearly an agreement has been reached and the BBFC no longer thinks that the film risks falling under the Obscene Publications Act.
The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film and who imagines putting the ‘centipede’ idea into practice. Unlike the first film, the sequel presents graphic images of sexual violence, forced defecation, and mutilation; and the viewer is invited to witness events from the perspective of the protagonist. Whereas in the first film the ‘centipede’ idea is presented as a revolting medical experiment, with the focus on whether the victims will be able to escape, this sequel presents the ‘centipede’ idea as the object of the protagonist’s depraved sexual fantasy.
