Human Centipede II - Ban in UK will be reversed...

...but just for a heavily censored Version

In June 2011 the BBFC refused to provide a rating for The Human Centipede II due to drastical depiction of sexual violence so the uncut version was banned. Rightholder Eureka Entertainment wanted to object against this verdict to enable a release in the UK.

The label succeded with that but not without censorings. 32 cuts with a total runtime of 2 minutes and 37 seconds had to be made to get the 18 rating from the BBFC. For details about the cuts see the following link: Klick

Sir Quentin Thomas, president of the BBFC, about the granted rating:


When we first examined this work earlier this year we judged that, as submitted, it was unsuitable for classification; and, as we explained to the company, we could not ourselves see how cuts could produce a viable and classifiable work. That remains the view of one of our Vice Presidents, Gerard Lemos, who is therefore abstaining from the Board's collective decision.

The company lodged an appeal against our decision to refuse classification. In the course of preparations for that appeal, the company proposed a number of cuts which it was right for us to consider. In response, after further examination, we proposed a more extensive series of cuts. These cuts produce a work which many will find difficult but which I believe can properly be classified at the adult level. The company has now accepted these cuts, withdrawn its appeal and the work has been classified, as cut, at 18.



Eureka is pleased about this verdict even if the genre fans will see it differently.

We are really pleased that after nearly 4 months of detailed discussion and debate, we have been able to reach an agreement with the BBFC and to produce a very viable cut of the film which will both excite and challenge its fans. Naturally we have a slight disappointment that we have had to make cuts, but we feel that the storyline has not been compromised and the level of horror has been sustained.
