Human Centipede II Won’t Get to Gross Out the U.K.

The British Board of Film Classification has banned the emphatically more disgusting Human Centipede sequel, meaning the movie can't be legally distributed in the U.K. in any way. Says the Board: "There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalized, degraded and mutilated for the amusement and arousal of the central character, as well as for the pleasure of the audience ... [the movie] poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers." And somewhere, surely, director Tom Six is laughing contentedly to himself. [HR]
