On British TV, you can say “f*ck,” but in British theaters, you can’t show a guy masturbating to his own human centipede. What’s up with that, Queen Elizabeth?

'Kidnapped' Might Be The Most Disturbing Film You See This Decade

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has banned The Human Centipede II: (Full Sequence), director Tom Six‘s follow-up to the instant cult classic about a man who stitches people together ass-to-mouth. Although the first one slid by with an 18 rating (Adults Only), this one is apparently unfit for loyal subjects of any age. BBFC took umbrage to the idea that the Centipede scientist would get a sexual kick out of his creation, a central element to the sequel. Maybe he should have romanced the Human Centipede a bit, to soften the impact on audiences? Took the Human Centipede out to dinner? Dancing? A marriage proposal?

IFC is releasing the movie in the US later this year. Spoilers After The Picture… (TheWrap)

Here’s exactly what the BBFC said about the film and their decision:

“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,” the BBFC wrote.

“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.’

“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. There is a strong focus throughout on the link between sexual arousal and sexual violence and a clear association between pain, perversity and sexual pleasure.”

Patrick Stewart and Peter Jackson Have Been Knighted http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/patrick-stewart-and-peter-jackson-have-been-knighted/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/patrick-stewart-and-peter-jackson-have-been-knighted/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Thank you for this grand honour."Patrick Stewart no longer has to pretend to be a knight to pick up chicks. Queen Elizabeth II has bestowed knighthood upon the Star Trek / X-Men actor for his Excellence in Being British (or something like that) on her New Year honors list. Also knighted, but on a seperate New Zealand list, was LOTR and King Kong director Peter Jackson.I sincerely hope that Stewart and Jackson do not take this honor lightly. You never know when the Queen may call you to fight. If you had paid attention during Reign of Fire, you'd know that dragon attacks can happen at any time. (NBC)
