"To avoid fainting, keep repeating: It's only a movie ... only a movie ... only a movie ..." Of course this was the infamous tagline that accompanied the directorial debut of the man who would become one of the most successful directors the genre has ever seen. Wes Craven helped to mold modern-day horror with his early work, then reinvigorated it when needed the most.
Craven has been in the horror business for four decades, but he may never have been more shocking than in the first two genre films he directed. A script he penned in 1971 entitled Night of Vengeance blew audiences away when it was released as the legendary, trailblazing film The Last House on the Left. And for those who've seen it (and since you're reading Dread Central right now, I'm assuming you have), it should be noted that Craven actually envisioned a much more brutal nightmare with Last House »

Well, folks, 2011 is officially in the can, and surprisingly it wasn't such a horrendous year. It was definitely better than 2010, which was a huge step up from the putrid 2009. We laughed, we applauded, we were left dumbstruck, and of course we were infuriated. Read on for our cheers and jeers!

Hardcore horror buffs outraged that they would miss the chance to see Tom Six's The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence in all its squirming cinematic glory will be excited to hear that the previously banned film has been granted an R18+ rating and thus can be screened in the country.

Tom Six’s controversial film The Human Centipede and dark follow up The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence(review) has caused a lot of reaction around the world. Many people dug both films, while some fans didn't like the darker tone of the second release (only within the awesome horror genre could a statement like that be made), while others purely hated the films. The second film is currently banned in Australia & New Zealand and was previously banned in the U.K.
Enter the third and what seems to be the conclusion of the film series The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence (check out our non official teaser poster for the The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence above...I was bored so I thought I would create some low budget 'fan art' to go along with this rather vague update.)

(Below is a letter we received from Richard Wolstencroft, founder and director of the Melbourne Underground Film Festival.)
Dear Bad Lit: The Journal of Underground Film,
The Australian Censors have got me mad. They have really pissed me off this time.
Not only do they ban La Zombie in 2010, harass me personally as a Fest Director and haul me before a judge to fine me, but then they ban A Serbian Film in a cut format (though the uncut is available online everywhere as a torrent!) hurting my friends at Accent Films who spent a lot to promote and buy it.
They then ban what I consider to be one of the greatest Horror films of the last ten years: The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence). A profound reflection of child abuse and its consequences in adult life that is both ethical, daring and brilliantly executed. It is dark, nuanced, confronting, »

In a decision that has outraged many film buffs and advocates of free speech, The Australian Classification Review Board reaffirmed their stance that Tom Six's The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence - the follow-up film to the director's twisted horror flick from last year - would be refused classification. Neil Foley, director of Monster Pictures who are distributing the film in Australia, has penned the following response "to express our disappointment at this decision" which was made at the recent review hearing. »
Consider it another notch in Tom Six's cinematic bedpost: The barf-inducing horror sequel The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has been banned in Australia following review by the Classification Review Board, the nation's three-person governing body. Too extreme even for an R 18+ rating, the film was deemed to contain "gratuitous, exploitative, or offensive depictions of violence with a very high degree of impact and cruelty which has a high impact;" hit with a Rc (Refused Classification) label, it can't be "sold, hired, or advertised" in Australia. »
Having recently seen Tom Six's Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence I just don't get all the controversy. It's a friggin' black comedy. Almost like a 90-minute fart joke. Well, another country has joined the ranks of those who deem the flick too offensive with its gratuitous usage of latex and karo syrup. Read on for details.
According to The Brisbane Times the graphic horror movie has been banned by the Classification Review Board just three weeks after it made its Australian premiere at the Brisbane International Film Festival.
Originally classified R 18+ by the Classification Board in May, Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence was refused classification by the Review Board on Monday with the review team decrying its "gratuitous, exploitative or offensive depictions of violence", as well as its displays of cruelty.
Whatever. The flick is available here in the States via VOD. Judge for yourself.

It looks like Tom Six won't be making a Disney film anytime soon, or seeing his latest o-pus The Human Centipede 2 play screens in Australia.Banned in Brittain a few months back, until it was agreed that cuts would be made. It played Australia's Brisbane International Film Festival in November under an age-prohibitive R-18+ rating. When Human Centipede 2 hit the Australian Classification Board (Acb) this last Monday though, it seems the films crawl to screens hit a standstill. Cited for being "gratuitous", "exploitative", and "excessively violent", the Acb has halted Tom Six's controversial sequel from hitting theaters.In all reality, this ruling and all the other nefarious news of how twisted and f-ed up this film is, will probably just drive sales up, as »
Tom Six's Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence has been banned by the Classification Review Board just three weeks after it made its Australian premiere at the Brisbane International Film Festival, says the Sydney Morning Herald. Originally classified R 18+ by the Classification Board in May, Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence was refused classification by the Review Board on Monday with the review team decrying its "gratuitous, exploitative or offensive depictions of violence", as well as its displays of cruelty. The sequel to Tom Six's 2009 film The Human Centipede: First Sequence follows a mentally unstable car park attendant who becomes so obsessed with the first movie that he copycats the original premise of sewing humans together into one "centipede". The unedited version of the film was originally cleared for classification in Australia, despite being cut for audiences in the United Kingdom after an initial banning. »
The gruesome Human Centipede sequel has been banned in Australia due to its graphic content.
Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence, which was banned in Britain this year before film bosses agreed to re-edit it, was premiered at the Brisbane International Film Festival in early November and was initially given a restrictive adults only R18-plus rating.
However, on Monday, officials at Australia's Classification Board refused to give the horror movie a rating due to its "gratuitous, exploitative or offensive depictions of violence," meaning the film cannot be shown in Australian cinemas.
The decision has been welcomed by campaigners of Christian group FamilyVoice Australia, who previously urged the film board to ban the movie.
FamilyVoice Australia spokeswoman Ros Phillips tells the Brisbane Times, "Earlier this year we were shocked to learn that the uncut version of this horrific film had been passed by Australia's Classification Board as R18-plus - but had been banned by the British Board of Film Classification.
"On behalf of Australian families, we thank the Board for its unanimous agreement. Pornography based on human torture has no place on Australian screens."
The follow-up to Tom Six's 2009 movie tells the story of a film fan who becomes so obsessed with the first installment, he copies the premise of sewing humans together to form a "centipede". »
Last year it was a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a pig. More specifically, it was a quail, in a Cornish hen, in a chicken, in a duck, in a turkey, in a pig, all layered, deboned, held together with veal and pork sausage meat, filled with bacon stuffing, lathered in a Jack Daniels glaze, and covered in candied bacon strips. It was baked, then smoked, then garnished with Wendy’s Baconators, then eaten. This year it’s the same thing. Except times 10. Harley Morenstein, Sterling Toth, Muscles Glasses and the rest of the Canadian crew of gonzo food pornorgraphers otherwise known as Epic Meal Time have grossly expanded on their Turbacon creation of 2010 and conceived of a new culinary monstrosity dubbed the Turbaconepicentipede. It’s a bunch of Turbacons lined up in a row, positioned like the characters in Tom Six »
