Tom Six’s controversial sequel to his equally controversial film, The Human Centipede, is about to make its mark on both US and Australian audiences. The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence has already been banned in the UK by the BBFC, a move which has helped fuel the films notoriety, and is used in the following teaser trailer as a selling point. The teaser also claims the film has been cut in the US, which is not official. Australian audiences will get to see the film in both an uncut and a cut form from this October in limited cinemas, exactly the same as the US, while we poor sods in the UK will have to wait for the region 1 release to see it.
Australia’s Monster Pictures are handling distribution down under, and they have put together this bizarre, yet unsettling teaser trailer which offers up no footage from the film, only sounds as people are invited into the back of a van to view the film. The trailer is the viewers reaction, and it is clear Monster Films are going all out to push the nastiness of the film. What I like here is the Aussie’s attitude to it all, yes the film is clearly pretty damned sickening, but its only a movie and the teaser trailer actually shows that maybe the point is to try and have some fun with what could well be the sickest film ever, until the third part of the trilogy arrives which will “make Part 2 look like a Disney film”, according to Six. I haven’t seen the film, so I don’t know how horrific it is, but from what I have read on the plot, it is pretty bloody sick.
Meanwhile, Tom Six and Bounty Films have been desperately trying to fight the UK ban but don’t seem to be getting anywhere fast. Here is what Six said in a recent interview with HorrorMovies.ca
“…they have rejected our second appeal, so now the distributor has to go to a barrister or court, I’m not sure how that works, so it looks not very good. The film is not obscene, a lawyer said that and we have to get a barrister saying that. We have to find a way, I’m fighting my ass off with the distributor to find a way to show the film in the UK.”
