For everybody who enjoyed The Human Centipede – get ready for the sequel: Human Centipede 2 : Full Sequence. Crazy Dutch director Tom Six is back with an all new installment, and it looks like it’s meant to please the people who found the first Human Centipede too tame. Check out the teaser trailer below.
Human Centipede 2 Trailer
Since this is just a teaser, we don’t see anything, but the the Human Centipede 2 trailer makes use of a gimmick that was done in the 70s, where sneak previews showed people supposedly going insane from watching the movie being presented. (Like the I Dismember Mama/Blood Spattered Bride trailer below).
Anyway, back to Human Centipede 2 – it was again written and directed by Tom Six. Cast: Laurence R. Harvey, Dominic Borrelli, Georgia Goodrick, Lucas Hansen, Emma Lock, Dan Burman, Bill Hutchens.
The movie also stars Ashlynn Yennie and Peter Blankenstein, who were both in the original Human Centipede.
A guy becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film (using sandpaper to “pleasure himself” – yikes). He decides to create a “human centipede” of his own, this time composed of 12 victims instead of 3. There’s more “crap” (if you know what we’re saying) and raping with barbed wire or some such thing. Just talking about it makes us want to reach for our upchuck cup.
The UK certification board wouldn’t give the movie a certificate, effectively banning it there. The classification board, which gave the original film an 18 rating, outright rejected the sequel, saying:
This work presents graphic images of sexual violence, forced defecation and mutilation and the viewer is invited to experience the event from the perspective of the central character. The central focus of THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 is the sexual arousal of this character at the idea and later the spectacle of the total degradation, humiliation, mutilation, torture, rape and murder of his naked victims. There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalised and degraded for the amusement and sexual arousal of the main character and for the pleasure of the viewer. There is a strong and sustained focus throughout the work on the link between sexual arousal and sexual violence and a clear association between non-consensual pain and sexual pleasure.
After careful consideration, it was judged that to issue a certificate to THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 , even if statutorily confined to adults, would involve risk of harm within the terms of the VRA, would be inconsistent with our Guidelines, would be unacceptable to the public and could be in potential breach of UK law. The BBFC considered whether cutting the work might address the issues but concluded that as the unacceptable material featured throughout, cutting was not a viable option and the work was therefore refused a classification.
So is this a huge advertisement for Human Centipede 2, or what? Our guess is the UK board’s quotes will be all over the posters. In case you are wondering, the VRA is the Video Recordings Act of 1984, which was a reactionary piece of legislation due to the “video nasties” of the 1980s. The BBFC emphasizes that they are
obliged under the VRA to have special regard to the likelihood of any harm that may be caused to the viewer or, through their behavior, to society. This risk of harm includes encouraging a dehumanised view of others, callousness towards victims and taking pleasure in the pain and humiliation of others.
The movie got an R18+ rating in Australia. We imagine that it won’t make it past the MPAA without cuts.
Finally, here’s Tom Six with his intentions:
Who let this guy out?
Human Centipede 2 gets a limited release in the USA on October 7, 2011.
