Eureka Entertainment To Appeal BBFC Ban Of Tom Six's THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2: FULL SEQUENCE
It's a move that should surprise no-one but it is now official. When announcing their ban of Tom Six's The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence, the BBFC noted that the parties affected would have up to six weeks to appeal the decision. UK distributor Eureka Entertainment has just announced their intention to do so, releasing an ultra-brief press release stating only:
I presume the quote from Australia's Bounty are included purely as a reminder that the film was passed uncut by a country with a similar censorship code to the UK's, as an Australian decision will have no official legal standing or influence whatsoever.
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.
