Edited Version Of ‘The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)’ Will Get A U.K. Release

Check Out 2 Clips From The Film

Remember when there was a minor controversy this summer when the BBFC—British Board of Film Classification—rejected “The Human Centipede Part 2 (Full Sequence)” effectively banning the film in the country? Well, it looks like Tom Six has found a way to appease the board who, unfortunately, probably had to sit through the movie more than once.

Empire reports that the BBFC no longer believe the movie will be a harm to the public after they initially shut it down due to the line drawn between sexual arousal of the main character that runs parallel to the increasingly horrific acts he perpetrates on his victims. A new edit that contains 32 cuts totaling 2 minutes and 37 seconds has been given a queasy thumbs up and an 18 rating from the board, which means U.K. horror fans will be able to see Tom Six’s latest ass-to-mouth opus on the big screen as it was intended. Bring barf bags.

No word yet from the film’s Blighty distributors, Eureka, as to a release date or a rollout plan, but with a certificate in hand they are likely already looking at the calendar. We had mixed feelings about the film when we caught up with it recently, but if you’re looking to be thoroughly grossed out, ‘Full Sequence’ delivers. For those of you stateside who are curious to know what all the fuss is about, the movie hits this weekend. To get a taste, here are a couple of clips from the film.
