Centipede Unleashed

The BBFC have decided to reverse the ban on Human Centipede 2.  After making 2 minutes and 37 seconds of cuts, the film will be released in the UK.

Guess what?  Now the film has recieved countless words written on it in the press, all that free publicity will probably have doubled or tripled its potential audience.  The trailers have bigged up the fact it was banned and the next trailers will probably big up the fact its been cut.

So the damage has been done.   I'm probably the millionth person to comment on this and I'm sure I won't be the last.  Hardcore horror fans will no doubt still be scouring the web for an uncut version, but the rest will now be able to get a reasonable idea of what all the fuss is about when they see th edited version on DVD.

Reviews suggest it's a poor film that would have likely been seen by very few.  But after all this controversy, it's a film that so many like me will feel they have to see now if they want to consider themselves a credible horror connoiseur.

Well at least now it's got a release, perhaps we can all stop banging on about it!
