Ever woke up in the morning and thought to yourself “Hey! You know what I’d like to see today? A fat Northerner stapling someone’s mouth to an anus while jerking himself off with sandpaper!” Have you?
Then chances are, you’re Tom Six, the director of The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), and barely anyone else.
See, the film has taken a hilarious ?942 at the box office after opening in the UK last weekend. Basically, no-one wants to see it AND pay for it. We suspect that it has been streamed and downloaded online (uncut) more times than anyone settling down in a cheese smelling cinema has.
Of course, Tom Six will no doubt blame this dreadful showing on the fact that two minutes and 37 seconds removed from it so it could obtain an 18 certificate for release.
Fact is, like the first film, it was trying way too hard to show and people were pretty bored by the notion.
Six slammed censors the British Board of Film Classification’s (BBFC) when they rejected his movie in June.
“Apparently I made a horrific horror film, but shouldn’t a good horror film be horrific? My dear people it is a fucking MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art.”
The first Human Centipede didn’t fare too well either, taking ?6,145 in 2010. Basically, both films combined have made about enough profit to have a medium sized wedding.
