With so much news going on about Tom Six’s Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence this week, its hard to keep up! The latest news is that Eureka Entertainment, the company releasing the movie, have appealed the BBFC’s decision. You may remember that in one of our news posts, it was said that the distributors or Tom Six himself had six weeks to appeal the decision. Yesterday I shared with you what Tom Six had to say, and now I can share with you what Eureka Entertainment had to say in their appeal.
In the light of the decision of the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) not to grant The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) a classification certificate, Bounty Films (Australia), in conjunction with its UK distribution partner Eureka Entertainment Ltd. intends to appeal the decision.
Bounty MD Tony Romeo said:
“In Australia the film has been granted a certificate with no cuts. We are extremely surprised therefore by the BBFC’s decision.”
At this time we do not wish to comment further.
A fair point considering the film will be released uncut in Australia and, from the rumours, uncut in the US. Now, I don’t want to get into this whole censorship debate, but what is the difference between UK residents to US or Australian residents? How come they get to see the film in its entirety and here in the UK we can’t even get a cut version? Anyway, more on this story as it continues to develop.
