HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 Banned In Australia

Sean Smithson, Contributor
It looks like Tom Six won't be making a Disney film anytime soon, or seeing his latest o-pus The Human Centipede 2 play screens in Australia.

Banned in Brittain a few months back, until it was agreed that cuts would be made. It played Australia's Brisbane International Film Festival in November under an age-prohibitive R-18+ rating. When Human Centipede 2 hit the Australian Classification Board (ACB) this last Monday though, it seems the films crawl to screens hit a standstill. Cited for being "gratuitous", "exploitative", and "excessively violent",  the ACB has halted Tom Six's controversial sequel from hitting theaters.

In all reality, this ruling and all the other nefarious news of how twisted and f-ed up this film is, will probably just drive sales up, as I highly doubt that Human Centipede 2 was going to be rolled out as an event film Down Under (or anywhere else). Also, given the advent of, shall we say, ease of availability, it's not like anyone who wants to see Human Centipede 2 isn't going to be able to. These rulings seem like a joke. Hopefully it benefits the film, or, if anything, the spirit of independent productions.

For anyone curious as to what the hoopla is all about, watch the trailer below the break.
