Human Centipede 2 rejected by British Film Board

I’m not a big fan of gross-out “horror”, but the original Human Centipede was at least something novel and truly horrifying.  It seems for Human Centipede 2, the filmmakers have gone for pure disgust instead of a good story.

According to IO9.com, the British Film Board has rejected the film as “the explicit presentation of the central character’s obsessive sexually violent fantasies is in breach of its Classification Guidelines and poses a real, as opposed to a fanciful, risk that harm is likely to be caused to potential viewers.”

Wow, now that’s something.

I said something similar about A Serbian Film.  I get that filmmakers want to push the limits, but sometimes you move beyond storytelling into a realm where all you’re trying to do is be disgusting.  It’s not art at that point, it’s just sadism.
