Film release


A film banned earlier this year for being too horrific for UK cinema has now been given the go-ahead by nearly all members of the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

Horror film The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), previously rejected because it was sexually violent and potentially obscene, was given the 18 classification after 32 cuts.

However, according to reports from the Press Association, the film had only one detractor on the board — Gerard Lemos, one of the vice-presidents of the BBFC, abstained from the board’s collective decision.

How long before this film ends up on the shelves of stores and rental libraries, and into homes across this country, to influence families, and also children much younger than 18?
