British Board of Film Classification

Martyrs Movie

In a country of 62 million, 35 people are about to alter the way the public sees movies. Not even 35 people either — more like interpretations of their open-ended responses to a faulty screening process disguised as research. You see, earlier in the year, the British Board of Film Classification commissioned a study on sexual and sadistic violence in films [PDF], but instead of consulting experts or surveying thousands of people to get a meaningful understanding of what the public is thinking, they asked 35 people leading questions to decide that everyone’s against what the censor board wants them to be against. It wouldn’t be such a big deal, but now the BBFC has announced they’ll be reviewing their attitudes regarding films with sexual and sadistic violence based on this bogus study. Talk about a self-fulfilling policy.



Besides the bad acting, the eye-rollingly terrible story, the logic gaps, and pointlessness, the biggest problem with Human Centipede was that it just wasn’t all that gross. With a premise like that, you’d better deliver the goods, and director Tom Six instead covered the goods in adult diapers and pantomime poop-eating. Fortunately, its sequel has been flatly rejected by the British Board of Film Classification – citing “images of sexual violence, forced defecation, and mutilation.” A plot synopsis of sorts has come from the decision, and it reveals that Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) will be employing a new horror trend into its bag of tricks. Of course, mild spoilers stand right ahead…
