Here’s some news that I wasn’t expecting to see. The BBFC (the governing body that decides what rating a movie should be here in the UK) has decided to give The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) an 18 rating (find out why it was rejected initially here). From what we were hearing, the movie was never going to get to see the light of day in UK cinemas and if you have a read of Ty’s review of the movie, you’ll understand a little more about why! There is also a trailer here for your viewing (sort of) pleasure.

Eureka Entertainment have posted a press release with all the info so read on for more but if you were worried that you were going to have to find this movie underground somewhere, you can rest easy! From the sounds of it, the cut will be quite different to how it was originally intended but here it is! The BBFC site says that there were 32 cuts which total 2:37 mins. Here’s a description of what they were!

Company was required to make 32 individual cuts to scenes of sexual and sexualised violence, sadistic violence and humiliation, and a child presented in an abusive and violent context. In this case, cuts included: a man masturbating with sandpaper around his penis; graphic sight of a man’s teeth being removed with a hammer; graphic sight of lips being stapled to naked buttocks; graphic sight of forced defecation into and around other people’s mouths; a man with barbed wire wrapped around his penis raping a woman; a newborn baby being killed; graphic sight of injury as staples are torn away from individuals’ mouth and buttocks. Cuts required in accordance with BBFC Guidelines, policy and the Video Recordings Act 1984.

Press Release from Eureka Films –


Eureka Entertainment is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of the controversial horror film The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence).

Ian Sadler, Sales Director for Eureka Entertainment, Bounty Films’ UK distributor 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.”

Further details of our plans for the UK theatrical and DVD release will be announced
early next week.

From the sounds of it, the cut will be quite different to how it was originally intended but here it is!
