Saw it now. Pretty sick film, although I had expected something even more graphic after all the hooplah.

Makes you wonder how they come up with these ideas, though.

Interesting development: THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 has been rejected by the BBFC as potentially obscene....

ah good ole censorship. While I have no interest in seeing the sequel, I am against the BBFC's decision and even more so, how they spoiled the film by saying why they rejected it. I wont type here what parts are of concern to them, but they are pretty graphic. You can find them on the net. The director is apparently angry as heck as well. As he should be.

I wonder what "genuine risk" the film poses?

None. It's just insipid and offensive.

A waste of time.

I saw the trailer and all I could think was "What kind of sick mind would come up such stuff and then peddle it as entertainment?" Even if it is played somehow in a humorous light, the concept itself is just revolting to me. I think I'll pass on this one when it comes to cable, if it hasn't already. I guess it might make for a good gross out film for teenagers.

No, he should not be angry. He is a clown, a sad and obviously sick person. And after watching the original movie, it is obvious he has no talent as a writer, director or actor. He knows fucking well the kind of attention and ire he would draw, and you can be sure as he shakes his fist and raises his voice in protest, in private he wrings his hands in glee.

Oh let us go ahead and spoil it. There is no reason in the world for anything like this to be on film. It is NOT the work of a filmmaker, it is the work of a souless hack with financing and a camera.

The principal focus of The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is the sexual arousal of the central character at both the idea and the spectacle of the total degradation, humiliation, mutilation, torture, and murder of his naked victims. Examples of this include a scene early in the film in which he masturbates whilst he watches a DVD of the original Human Centipede film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis, and a sequence later in the film in which he becomes aroused at the sight of the members of the ‘centipede’ being forced to defecate into one another’s mouths, culminating in sight of the man wrapping barbed wire around his penis and raping the woman at the rear of the ‘centipede’

Now, who can go ahead and defend that? I am against censorship, but the idiot writer/director should never ever be allowed behind a camera. In front of a speeding semi truck, yes, but not behind a camera.

And who the hell finances something like this? It is stunt work, shock movie making and hell, I'd agree with the negative being burned razz

As I said earlier, I love films that try to rattle with political correctness and that challenge our moral orientation. Like Michael Haneke's films or Gaspar Noë or Pascal Laugier. This fits neatly with these films, and I appreciate it for that, as sick as the topic is. Just to come up with the idea is brilliant. It goes directly to the core of our viscera, our fear of The Other and what's inside us (turning the inside out).

I definitely think there should be room for this kind of film as well.

That said, beyond the interesting idea, I was somewhat disappointed with it AS A FILM. The narrative wasn't very original, and it could have been more icy cold in its delivery. It ended up as a weird hybrid between more commercial "torture porn" and something more ambitious.

So just to clarify, what you're saying is "I am against censorship, but this guy should be censored." Or am I missing something?

LOL you are right. Gladly admit it. wink

In mainstream media I've never run into something where I'd approve censorship. But this is the limit. This idiot just has no business making movies. None. At all.

I would reserve that for someone like Uwe Boll. smile

Evidently he does, considering that not only did he get the first one financed, but it apparently performed well enough that he could get a sequel financed as well!

It's quite laughable to me that I will be quite able to see this movie even though I live in the UK, whether the BBFC want me to or not...I have never understood this all-encompassing power they think they have and seem to think that, as adults, we actually give a shit...DO they really think that I am not going to allow myself to choose what I subject myself to as far as this kind of entertainment goes?

(psssssst - don't tell the BBFC, but I've seen the uncut Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom too - that'll REALLY get them pissed wink )

I will see Human Centipede 2 - looking forward to it.
