    Human Centipede 2 banned by the BBFC

    Human Centipede 2 banned by the BBFC | TotalFilm.com

    The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has been rejected by the British Board of Film Classification because it is “sexually violent and potentially obscene”.
    The report can be read here (warning: spolier alert, not to mention its pretty grim) BBFC REJECTS THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE II (FULL SEQUENCE) « British Board of Film Classification

    Personally im very reluctant to support censorship in any circumstances but I can see where these people are coming from if there is a risk of peope copying what they see etc. but if there is an appropriate plave to draw then line on free speech then where should it be drawn? (if it should exist attal)

    Movies display f'd up things all the time. I don't see why adding more ridiculousness would necessitate a ban. Most governments allow a lot of violence in movies without too much concern for copycats, why so here?

    Glad I live in America where this **** won't happen. Any censorship based on "potentially obscene" material is wrong. No matter how ****ed up it is.

    They banned Manhunt 2 and Bully as well I believe. I wouldn't censor it, but it sounds pretty horrible. I don't know, I never watched the first one; rather the Tosh.0 spoiler was all that was needed for me to know that I didn't want to watch this POS movie (the first one). And the South Park episode of i-centipad was enough for me. But the UK is a sovereign country and can do as it likes so long as its People allow it.

    How the hell can something be "potentially obscene".

    I mean hell, any human being could be potentially obscene... Some of us are only a belt buckle away from sharing the crown jewels...

    Quick! Hide Lindsay Lohan! She's potentially obscene! And Andy Dick, hes imminently obscene!

    You cannot fight my logic:
    Think of the most obscene thing ever that should not be shown on tv.....
    shouldnt it not be shown on tv?
