• “There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalised, degraded and mutilated for the amusement and arousal of the central character, as well as for the pleasure of the audience,” the BBFC said. The board also said The Human Centipede II may breach the Obscene Publications Act, and “poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers”. Only 11 films have been banned outright by the BBFC in its 99-year history, the most recent being Grotesque, a 2009 Japanese horror film whose premise was likewise deemed dangerously offensive.
