Is this the sickest movie ever made? Film board refuses to classify Human Centipede 2 as it could ‘harm viewers’

The UK's movie ratings body has taken the unusual step of refusing outright to classify a new horror film - and warned there was a real risk of harm to viewers.

Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) is the sequel to 2009's stomach-churning German movie about a mad scientist who grafts three kidnap victims together by stitching them mouth to anus.

The sequel - which was shot in London with an all-British cast - deals with a man who becomes 'sexually obsessed' with a DVD recording of the original film and wants to put the idea into practice.

Instead of examining whether the victims will escape the horrific medical experiment, the new film looks at the sexual fantasies of the torturer and the humiliation and mutilation he inflicts.

An online teaser released to promote the new film called it 'the sickest movie of all time'.


But the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has ruled no amount of cuts would allow them to give the new film a certificate and said it may fall foul of the Obscene Publications Act.

The original Human Centipede (First Sequence) film was given an 18 certificate and was shown in cinemas and film festivals before being released on DVD.

Dutch director, Tom Six, who helmed both films, promised part one would be 'My Little Pony compared to part two' - which is said to feature a 12-person 'human centipede'.





Since 1912, the film classifier has been the arbiter of good taste...


  • Recent bans include Grotesque (2009) - a Japanese horror film which featured sexual sadism - and A Serbian Film (2010) - featuring sexual violence.
  • Several films that were originally banned have since been shown in their uncut version, including Tod Browning's Freaks (1932) and Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974).
  • Battleship Potemkin was refused a certificate in 1933 until the Fifties. It is now a PG.
  • The Wild Ones was banned in 1955, got an X in 1967 and is also now a PG.



Film distributors had applied to release the follow-up, The Human Centipede 2, on DVD but its rejection means it cannot be legally supplied in the UK.

The BBFC concluded that the thrust of the film was 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'.

It said: 'There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalised, degraded and mutilated for the amusement and arousal of the central character, as well as for the pleasure of the audience.'

The BBFC said the film breached classification guidelines and 'poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers'.

The first film caused a stir when it was released last year by Six but it was thought to be suitable for adult viewing.

Although set in Germany, it was filmed in the Netherlands.

The cast includes Dieter Laser as the mad scientist Dr Heiter - and his three victims are Ashley Williams (as Lindsay), Ashlynn Yennie (Jenny) and Akihiro Kitamura (Katsuro).


The ratings body said that 'although the concept of the film was undoubtedly tasteless and disgusting, it was a relatively traditional and conventional horror film'.

At the time of the original film's release, celebrated U.S. film critic Roger Ebert said: 'I am required to award stars to movies I review.


'This time, I refuse to do it.


'The star rating system is unsuited to this film. Is the movie good? Is it bad? Does it matter?

'It is what it is and occupies a world where the stars don't shine.'

LOL. The Human CentIpad http://www.vidxden.com/palm4kc8u6zp/south.park.s15e01.hdtv.xvid-fqm.flv.html go to 10.11 in the video and then to the end of it. 'It downloads apps, has wifi annnd shits in Kyles mouth?'

although there was another one were they had the full BBFC statement and they said more about the new mental man in the film. It is wrong especially that a man can come up with an idea like this and actually visualise that kinda crap.

Anyway……… does anyone know when it's out? ;-)

I've never seen the first one. A bunch of my friends have, though. I'm horrified based on what they've told me.


On that note, just knowing there's a sequel to this makes me feel nauseous. :sick:

What there's a second part of that movie?! :cheesy:



Oh and watch "A Serbian Film" if you want to see the sickest movie ever made <__<


Oh hell yes, Serbian Film apparently is even worse. That one involves kids and family man. Being forced to shit in someone's mouth is nothing compared to that one.
