The 100% medically accurate film The Human Centipede (First Sequence) and the 100% medically inaccurate sequel The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) will be available together for the first time in a limited SteelBook and DVD double pack editions from 29 October 2012.
Since its release, The Human Centipede (First Sequence) has become a worldwide cultural phenomenon. Inspired by a conversation over what punishment would be appropriate for convicted paedophiles, Tom Six’s bizarre biological horror film has the distinction of being 100% medically accurate. The film went on to win more than 10 international awards including the awards for “Best Horror Film” and “Best Actor” at Fantastic Fest 2009, “Best Picture” at the 2009 Scream Fest and “Most Memorable Mutilation” at the 2010 Scream Awards.
The highly anticipated follow up, The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) premiered in 2011 as the opening film at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas and made instant worldwide headlines when the BBFC banned the film outright in the UK claiming the film could potentially harm viewers. The controversy led to worldwide debates and major articles across the world press. After nearly four months of detailed discussion and debate, an agreement with the BBFC was reached and a viable cut of the film that did not compromise the level of horror, was released theatrically and on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK.
The Human Centipede films broke the mould, set a new standard in the horror genre and in the process went on to become major cult hits. Now for the very first time, both films will be released together by Monster Pictures as a collectable Four-disc Special Limited Edition Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) SteelBook, available from 29 October 2012.
