UK film board not to classify 'sickest movie of all time' 'Human Centipede 2'

June 8, 2011 - London

UK's movie ratings body has taken the extreme step of refusing to classify a new horror film 'Human Centipede 2', warning that it posed a real risk of harm to the viewers.

The British Board of Film Classification ruled that no cuts would allow them to give the new film a certificate and said it may fall foul of the Obscene Publications Act.

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

The sequel, made by Dutch director Tom Six deals with a man who becomes 'sexually obsessed' with a DVD recording of the original film and wants to put the idea into practice.

Calling his movie 'art', Six said the original flick was like 'My Little Pony compared to part two'.

However, an online teaser released to promote the new film has called it 'the sickest movie of all time', reports the Daily Mail.

"Thank you BBFC for putting spoilers of my movie on your website and thank you for banning my film in this exceptional way. Apparently I made a horrific horror-film, but shouldn't a good horror film be horrific?" Six wrote in an email to Empire magazine's website.

"It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not," he added.
