Proudly banned in Britain, cut in the USA, and slated to be unleashed in Australia in its entirety, Tom Six's sequel to what many claims as the "sickest films of all time" has finally arrived.

It has been ten months since we last mentioned Tom Six's "The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)", the sequel to the infamous 2010's Dutch film The Human Centipede (First Sequence).

With "The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)" bearing a brand new tagline designed to contradict the first film's "100% medically accurate", a reasonable level of anticipation by the gore film fans is only to be expected for the "100% medically inaccurate" sequel. What's more, Tom Six has described the First Sequence as "My Little Pony when compared with part two".

Originally scheduled for a direct-to-DVD release in the United Kingdom, the film was refused a classification for distribution by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) in the UK for its explicit contents, effectively sealing its "banned film" status. While the film will be released in the theaters in the United States on October 7th, it was reported that the theatrical cut will be trimmed. As a result, those in Australia finally have something to gloat about when the film arrives in Australian cinemas some time this Spring in its entirety.

Interestingly, while stating their reason behind the refusal of a classification for distribution, BBFC released some grisly spoiler from the film. Here's some excerpts from the statement:

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. 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. It is the Board’s conclusion that the explicit presentation of the central character’s obsessive sexually violent fantasies is in breach of its Classification Guidelines and poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers.

Director Tom Six subsequently responded to the statement, criticising the BBFC for including film spoilers in their report.

In this Australia teaser trailer of the film that showcases zero footage from the sequel, Australian distributor Monster Pictures gets to display their company van complete with Australians getting sicked to the stomach with what was supposed to be the footage from the film.



For those interested in actual footage of the film, hit the jump to check out the first trailer of the film, followed by the first official set still featuring Laurence Harvey as Martin, the new antagonist/protagonist.
