Makes Part One Look Like "My Little Pony"

The Human Centipede sequel just too horrible to show, says BBFC. In the sequel, a man becomes erotically obsessed with a DVD copy of the original film – in which the victims are surgically stitched together mouth to anus – and decides to recreate the idea. Director Tom Six responds to news of the ban. Teaser preview. [Descriptions of events in film are NSFW; teaser preview is just silly.]

The sequel sounds disappointing, more like one of the tedious Saws films than the perfect little horror gem that was the first Human Centipede, which I'd rank as this generation's Re-Animator. Here's hoping that Full Sequence doesn't turn out to be Tom Six's Matrix Reloaded.

I didn't think much of the first movie. It wasn't scary, just obvious. It wasn't gory, just gross.

The whole experience was like being at some shitty promotional party for the "artists". You end up watching fake porn for some fetish that only the german guy (master) and the japanese guy at the centipede head (submissive) were into.

Not horrifying, just amateur and pointless.

I'm actually really disappointed by this: not the ban, but the revelation of what the sequel is actually about. It's just fucking dull - it's the first movie again, but hey, with rape this time! After a million and one sexual-violence-packed 'horror' movies over the last decade or so, that is just disheartening. Especially since the original Human Centipede is sort of unique in its hilarious-yet-nightmarish, oddly-circumspect-about-gore, almost-refreshingly-nonsexual endlessly-quotably-Mantrid-starring way. It's not a good movie as such, but it's a memorable one.

I thought the sequel was pretty much a dead cert to feature a load more stupid, wacky, grotesque surgical horror (especially given the size of the hook it had - who does Heiter phone near the beginning of the first one?), and new ridiculous mad doctors. But no. To quote the Warden of Superjail (a man far more versed in creative horribleness than Tom Six), he managed to make this boring.

They write themselves: Human Centipedes, the Aliens to the first film's Alien (they're coming outta the goddamn walls!). The Human Centipede Goes To Summer Camp, A Very Human Centipede Christmas, Green Eggs and Human Centipede...

Human Millipede!

I concur completely emmtee, Six could have pushed the franchise into truly hilari-creepy Junji Ito territory; just adding sexualised violence is the cheapest and most boring way possible to up the "shock" value. Quite a let-down.

As for the first film, I knew I'd love it as soon as I watched the opening scene of the Doctor sadly stroking the polaroid of his first experiment. "My sweet three-dog..."

Perhaps I'm getting old but I have difficulty getting outraged at The Man for 'banning' this sort of thing (possibly because the're only a few clicks away or so I'm told..) I still count myself a horror fan but after reading their descriptions I'm really not that interesting in seeing this, the original film, A Serbian Film or that Japanese one that got banned the other year. It's not just the gore etc - I thought Inside was a brilliant film and whilst Martyrs didn't really click with me I can see the point, Centipede et al just sound like outrage for outrage sake.

The director also promised then that part one would be "My Little Pony compared with part two.
Which would make this... Human Centipede: Friendship is Magic?

On a slightly more film studies level, is there a tradition of films in which the first film is a fictional object in the world of the second film? Offhand, I can think of Return of the Living Dead (the status of which as a sequel is of course complex) - although in that case Night of the Living Dead was a deliberate cover-up, which fictionalized real events in the film's world. And I think Book of Shadows - but in that case the original Blair Witch Project film existed in the world as a factual record of events rather than a cleverly marketed fiction.

Of course, the other meta level here is that the protagonist is kind of standing in for the viewer of the original film. Or at least the kind of viewer that critics of quote-unquote torture porn imagine - an unstable person who is sexually excited by the damage done to human bodies and inspired to want to recreate it. Somewhat like the home invaders in Hanneke's Funny Games - creations and creators of the cinematic voyeurism of cruelty - but, unsurprisingly, a lot more on the nose.

I think Six lucked out when he cast the magnificent Dieter Laser for his mad scientist. I'm not sure what the point of a sequel is without him, and while I sort of admire the meta aspect of a movie about a guy inspired by the in-movie fictional events of the first movie, and while I certainly do not think it should be censored, the movie itself doesn't sound like sound something I wanna see; going in a more absurd direction would, I think, have been a better idea than upping the gruesomeness.

Censorship is a difficult point and one we are going to increasingly be required to confront with the dissemination of consumer-created content. Then again, I suppose Human Centipede exists at the locus of consumer-created content if not in production quality then in storyline. Literally, each 'consumer' on the chain is forced to consume the 'content' of their fellow consumer, resulting in general infection, malnourishment, and eventual death, but I digress.

There is a fascinating aspect to the internet -- one we can see right here on AskMeFi -- in which people are bringing dark aspects to light. Thoughts or behaviours that are an indelible part of their own context yet which violate existing social mores. If we ask what happened before the internet, there was a binary existence -- often these people suffered in silence (white) or became consumed by their 'darkness' (black).

Now, from every corner, we are seeing eruptions of experience. "I feel like this... I know it's wrong but I feel it so distinctly..." Thus the opportunity for 'me too' validation to let people know that far from being malignant emotions or behaviours, that many other people feel these things too.

"I really want to dress up as a furry tiger and make love to a fuzzy bear"
"Me too!"

Thus, the Furries subculture.

"My wife and I are a bit bored with our marriage and think we'd like to have an open relationship"
"Us too!"

Thus, the swingers convention.

"I am really tired of the kid at school who bullies me and pushes me around"
"Me too!"

Thus, the anti-bullying movement.

"I am really tired of our unelected authoritarian government that never seems to be able to keep the electricity on but always has a new Rolls Royce"
"Me too!"

Thus, North Africa, 2011.

Now, if we take this connectedness and voice to the extreme, we get Human Centipede, which makes Steven King's darkest look like the bread basket of a dark dinner. It's filth, raw, unadulterated filth and has little value other than being shocking.

Personally, I am quite pleased for it not to be seen however to be censored? It's a slippery slope for whilst I find it offensive, I imagine there are some who would find some of the music that I listen to offensive.

Thus, we live in a society where things either are censored or they're not. I think China actually has the right idea for this with the special economic zones. Unbridled economic freedom would be very dangerous to a society that does not have the wherewithal to understand the full picture. However, denying that economic freedom is a step too far and would equally damage the society.

Thus the pragmatic approach of providing a space for contentious and potentially dangerous ideas. A space with boundaries and checks and balances.

I think we will need this in the world of content. I do not want to deny Human Centipede it's right to exist, just as I want not want someone to deny content I enjoy its right to exist. However, I do think Human Centipede is a step too far for general release.

Thus, perhaps we can section of South Kensington as the place where filth is shown and only show things like this in South Kensington. As one of the self-proclaimed seats of enlightened society in the UK, South Kensington is perfectly placed to be the UK's Macao of sexual violence and faecal deviance.

I don't want this movie to be censored. Truth be told, I don't want to even see this movie. However, if it is shown in a theater, I feel almost obligated to go see this next iteration of The Human Centipede. I know it will be revolting, horrifying, and nauseating. I also know some jackass behind me will be talking to his buddy during the entire movie. For once and only once in my entire theater-going life, I will look forward to this jackass. The Alamo will have nothing on me as I tell this man off.

That's rather begging the question, Thorzdad. The first Human Centipede is a very well-executed example of a certain kind of horror film: loony, surreal, and probably not half as viscerally gross as you're imagining. The single location used for the majority of the film actually makes it seem as much an incredibly strange bedroom farce as a body horror film.

Oh also, death to all censors.

The BBFC very, very rarely censor films outright. They've rejected 12 films in the past five years, most of which were hardcore pornography (you can't show, I think, graphic rape or torture scenes and they make a distinction between this and hardcore BDSM) - I'd link but it's tricky to get a link to the search results on their site. A Serbian Film was only cut by four minutes, to remove the most notorious scene, not banned. Given the video nasty controversy that was still being invoked less than twenty years ago after two boys killed the three year old James Bulger, it's quite progressive that more films are having restrictions lifted and so few are being banned outright.

It appears that nobody has explained to you yet how the Internets work.

I think you're mixing up the Streisand effect, which is a PR matter and similar to the superinjunction issue, with film censorship. They're quite different. And this is why in my job - advertising regulation for UK TV - we don't allow films/games etc. to claim things like 'the things they wouldn't let us show you' if this isn't actually the case.

I love horror movies. The thing about the Human Centipede is that the special effects were terrible and thus the whole movie collapsed. The titular human centipede didn't look convincing. I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure that the anus is not that close to the lower back. The whole movie rested on one effect and the creators didn't get the angles right.

I agree that the only reason the first film worked at all as horror is because of Dieter Laser, and without him any sequel is bound to collapse into farce. emmtee's suggestion, I think, is pretty much the only way to do it right. Lindsay has to survive to become the next villain.

In the sequel, a man becomes erotically obsessed with a DVD copy of the original film

Obviously, based on the description, the sequel should be The Human Centipede Ring. Writes itself, really.

I have no intention of seeing this movie. Never saw the original. However, after I told my teens about this ridiculous movie I heard about on Metafilter and how I couldn't believe it was ever actually made (I mean, who would want to see this stuff?!), my teens put The Human Centipede on our instant queue on Netflix and scheduled a sleepover around watching it.

I blame you people.

I have no doubt that now that the sequel has been banned in the UK, it will become wildly popular here.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

When the first HC came out, I made the mistake of reading Roger Ebert's review (prompted by a friend's Facebook post). Kind of like passing a car wreck and just having to look even though you know you're going to see something awful. I was made physically ill--just by reading the description of the film--and was unable to shake thoughts of the damn thing for the next week or so (and I am so ashamed to admit this but whenever I saw ANY movie or TV star for the next week, all I could think was what they would look like as a link in a human centipede).

I wanted to scrub out my brain with steel wool.

This thread has redeemed me, and has rendered all formerly hideous thoughts of the human centipede into pure comedy gold. I guess if you repeat something often enough in the most absurd contexts possible, it just loses all power.

Thank you.

Britain's list of banned films (only 11 in the BBFC's history) includes a lot of classics. Clockwork Orange, The Exorcist and The Wild One among others. I doubt that Human Centipede 2 is good enough to fit in with that crowd.

Incidentally, Ebert's review of Human Centipede is a case study in generic criticism, a surprisingly interesting test of his standards for what counts as a good movie.

Is a film true to its genre and does it deliver what its audiences presumably expect? “The Human Centipede” scores high on this scale... And it's not simply an exploitation film.

Leave it to Ebert to watch that film and come up with a humane response.

So the plot is about a "fan" of the original that finds it sexually gratifying? I have a funny feeling the first one was made with the explicit attempt at tweaking Tom Six's niche fetishes.

And that whole "fan of the movie takes things too far in the sequel" didn't work well for the Blair Witch Project.

The article says they're refusing an "18 certificate." But looking at the BBFC website they've got an "R18" that seems restrictive enough for any purpose. Or is that meant just for porn?

They turn to see Hudson at the MTOB monitors, pointing

HUDSON
They must be like Gorman. Their
signs are real low but they ain't
dead!

Hudson is pale, panicky, and his voice echoes around
the tiny metallic space and comes back to all of them
as the near hysteria they all feel, fluttering just
at the edges of their minds.

RIPLEY
You can't help them. Right now
they're being stitched together

My nitpick about the "100% Medically Accurate" thing was that (warning: gross) people subjected to that procedure would probably cry, and crying people get snotty. Having a stuffed up nose is not so great when that's the only thing you can breathe out of.

What makes a funny Human Centipede pun is an interesting study in humor. The ones that make direct reference to the mechanics of the Human Centipede (anus, mouth, feces), aren't as funny as the ones that take advantage of the fact that the maker of this film has given us a high level phrase to invoke all of that at once.

I didn't see the first movie, but after seeing the trailer I kept thinking of the human centipede. I probably won't see the second movie. I'm afraid Human Centipede jokes won't be funny to me if I'm referencing a movie watching experience and not a silly concept that there's no way anyone would spend THAT much money on.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Human Centipeded:

Rosencrantz: Did you ever think of yourself as actually dead, lying in a box with a lid on it?
Guildenstern: No.
Rosencrantz: Nor do I, really. It's silly to be depressed by it. I mean, one thinks of it like being alive in a box. One keeps forgetting to take into account the fact that one is dead, which should make all the difference, shouldn't it? I mean, you'd never know you were in a box, would you? It would be just like you were asleep in a box. Not that I'd like to sleep in a box, mind you. Not without any air. You'd wake up dead, for a start, and then where would you be? In a box. That's the bit I don't like, frankly. That's why I don't think of it. Because you'd be helpless, wouldn't you? Stuffed in a box like that. I mean, you'd be in there forever, even taking into account the fact that you're dead. It isn't a pleasant thought. Especially if you're dead, really. Ask yourself, if I asked you straight off, "I'm going to stuff you in this box. Now, would you rather be alive or dead?" Naturally, you'd prefer to be alive. Life in a box is better than no life at all, I expect. You'd have a chance, at least. You could lie there thinking, "Well. At least I'm not dead. In a minute somebody is going to bang on the lid, and tell me to come out." [bangs on lid] "Hey, you! What's your name? Come out of there!"
[long pause]
Guildenstern: I think I'm going to kill you. Probably by sewing your mouth onto my butt.

One of an inevitable million articles about the banning, courtesy of the Guardian. Apart from the actual censorship debate, it blows my mind that the original is placed alongside the Hostels and Serbian Films of the world by people who claim to have seen it.

It's like, in most of those movies I'm pretty sure there's never a sequence where the bad guy is kept up at night by the screams of his victims and visibly starts to regret ever getting into the whole thing. God only knows how seriously Tom Six meant it, or how much Dieter Laser's involvement changed it, but The Human Centipede - for better or worse - is not torture porn. It's ridiculousness porn.

So I finally watched the trailer. All I could think was that his hat looked like a white chocolate sculpture with a liquorice band. I guess that stuff on his shirt is raspberry coulee. What a tasty outfit.

I don't understand why anyone would make the movie.
I don't understand why anyone would even have the idea for the movie.
I don't understand why anyone would watch the movie, let alone pay to do so.

In lieu of censorship, could we invest billions into finding out why, and then inoculating everyone against whatever psychopathology causes the phenomenon of torture porn?

Please?

Hasn't it been about a decade now that people have been referring to "torture porn"? We've had giallos, slice'n'dice, gore movies, slasher flicks, body horror, extreme horror... Especially considering the increased acceptance for pretty heinous torture scenes in mainstream movies, I'm thinking it's time for a new catchphrase.

Did Tom Six actually pay the Beeb for this PR? Or was it a tax-free state promotion of the international film industry? Either way, golf clap, Mr. Six.

Apologies if I'm misunderstanding your comment, but the BBC ≠ the BBFC. The BBFC is a non-governmental organisation.

Let me take you to a place where movie trailers are the way they should be

Sometimes... we all need a day off.

Heiter walks into the basement to check on his creation - three mannequins under a blanket are rigged to turn over when the door is opened, and a tape recorder plays a constant loop of agonised screaming

Heiter: Vat is zo dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives zer ozher two bad ideas.

Ferris: ...she won't respect him, 'cause you can't respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn't work.

Heiter: Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Ferris: Don't you know who I am? I'm Abe Frohman, the Sausage King of Chicago! (muffled) Me too! (even more muffled) Me too!
