Obscene things do not enjoy the protection of the first amendment. That being said, I don't think I'd really even want to be the person who has to watch it and classify it as such.

But this is likely simply what they're going for. They're making something so disgusting and wrong that it simply gains attention on that alone. Doubt it'll have them turn a buck though.

so hows it any different from the SAW franchise?

Ugh... I would have nothing to complain about these kind of films if they just flat out stated their torture porn and have no artistic merit. Just 2 hours of someone being brutalized and tortured. Lame
I personally hated the Saw franchise (even the original), but Saw at least had the psychological aspect of tough love taken to the extreme.

Saw was about forcing people to change their ways (and disfigure them) or die i.e. you like raping ladies huh? either you die or you have to stick your hand in an industrial press.

I thought it was unbearably stupid, but there was a point behind it all.

Human Centipede is about a crazy guy making people eat shit and die.

It was humorous when Duke Nukem said it, but nobody actually wanted to ever see it happening.
Ill admit, it's thread bare plot keeps SAW from being void of all artistic art. The problem is it's so poorly executed, I just get the feeling the story was just something they tacked on after coming up with all the torture scenes. I can't tell you a single character out of all the movies I watched (had a girlfriend that liked them so I've seen them all) aside from the Orignal Jigsaw.

The worst part is, it could of been a great thriller like Death Note or Seven but just ends up being "Hey! We need an excuse to kill someone in a Brazen Bull!"

Look at it this way, most people watched it out of shock and thee were literally 7 actors in the entire film. Most of which are so small names that they could pay them in corn than money

OT: Damn, me and my mates had a great laugh watching the first when we were drunk. I'm sure we will acquire it using 'other' methods

Sounds hilariously vile. I'll just have to get it on DVD when it comes out.

Also for those questioning where they got the money from, I believe the DVD sales for the first one was through the roof.

I thought the first movie was pretty shitty but I didn't think an announcement of a sequal would make everyone so anal. But it looks like european theaters didn't want their eyes to get fucked again. I heard the first one captured audiences when it first came out.

Wow a lot of negative comments.
Need I remind you why?
The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film in the series, The Human Centipede, masturbating to the first film, using sandpaper to pleasure himself. He decides to create a "human centipede" of his own, which he uses to his own sexual delight, taking sexual pleasure in watching victims of the centipede defecate in each other's mouths and raping the woman at the end of the centipede.
The only good I can see in this is that the government would put anyone who sees this film on a watch list.

Also, according to wikipedia
the film was potentially in breach of the Obscene Publications Act, meaning its distribution in the UK would be illegal

So yes, I don't think I will be sleeping tonight.
Still doesn't explain most of the comments, its just a movie. If it happened in real life then people being outraged is understandable. This is fiction, whether it was some crazy person writing the story on used napkins or a big budget movie doesn't make a difference.

There should be no such thing as an Obscene Publications Act, trying to make subject opinions on publications people have to choose to see into law is nonsense. And putting people on a watch list for seeing a movie violates freedom of speech and thought. That's a far more destructive thing to society than any movie could be.

Honestly, I'm against censorship of almost any kind... BUT SERIOUSLY THANK GOD THEY BANNED THIS PIECE OF CRAP! Hey, while you're at it, why not ban the first one too. People who actually intentionally watch this movie need to be examined.

Normally, I'm anti-censorship. This is one of those things people bring up IF they are arguing for censorship.

...because there can never be too much defecation in a movie.

Seriously, this looks fucked. And the main reason why it's stepping up the pace? Because all the fucking idiots who watched it COMPLAINED that it wasn't fucking gory enough. Seriously, after all those complaints, I'm expecting this to be the most grotesque piece of cinema ever. Just to appease you sick fucks.

"Using sandpaper to pleasure himself?" I dare say that if you rub your dick with sandpaper, you're not going to have much of one in the near future.

Frankly, this movie just sounds like trash. I say that not because it's gross, but because it's gross merely for the purpose of being gross. The people on board for this movie have so little creativity or skill that they merely resort to creating a two hour "2 girls 1 cup."

Well being from the UK, all I have to say is, huzzah!

First film was a pile of garbage. I didn't even find it shocking, it was just crap.
Okay so we can complain about censorship and the like 'til the cows come home but I think we should just stick to deriding these travesties of cinema.
Well, beware the slippery slope. Free speech can't exist when there are exceptions, and I'd point out how the UK went through that whole "video nasties" thing in the 1980s.

I don't think anyone should be forced to watch things like this, but I don't object to their existance just on principle. I've never seen the first movie, and I won't watch the second one. I enjoy "shock cinema" and horror, but the premise here doesn't capture my imagination. The whole "Human Centepede" thing seems like something you would use as a psrt of another movie for a mad scientist to be up to, or the eventual, surprise, fate of victims in such a movie with a morbid ending right before the credits roll. Stretching an idea like this into a movie all on it's own, really doesn't appeal to me, but to each their own I feel.

It's sort of like how you have groups like "August Underground" and their shock movies, I haven't bothered to track them down really, because by all accounts they are borderline incoherant and poorly made, with little to go along with them aside from the shock factor, I do no however begrudge the fans their poison of choice.

The funniest thing is, this movie will probably be allowed in Australia, and yet we still can't get an R rating for games....

The world is messed up.

I think this is one of those rare occurrences in which I'm okay with censorship. I mean, really, look at that synopsis. I wouldn't even let my parents watch this, never mind children.

...What redeeming features does this "franchise" (is use that term loosely) have? Saw at least had some moral grounding (all be it, very flimsy, poorly finsihed moral grounding). but The Human Centipede...other than it apparently made some people laugh (which in itself is scary as fuck) serves no real purpose. It doesn't even offer an escape...just vomitting and disgust...and the afore-mentioned laughter.

I see no problem with the banning, their logic is perfectly sound. But that will never happen in North America where any cencership is met with almost across the board hatred and protesting.*sigh* I have lost my respect for NA society

By god this film sounds like something my friend would love.

I however am neither sick or happy, just disinterested. I don't really see why it was banned.
