    But see that's just it. It might be beyond graphic and horrific to some... To others it a little bit icky but mostly lame. I don't want movies to be banned because some people are weaker stomached than others. I do agree that better classification is needed though so you know what it is before you watch it... But I've seen plenty of gross films. I find them more boring due to lack of story that so gruesome I am traumatised.

    I also think its weird to compare fictional torture scenes to child porn. Fictional child rape happens in film... And while if its particularly graphic it's questioned I believe it's probably because the actors are still children and making children pretend at getting raped can be pretty screwy. Not so much because its portraying child rape. Brutal graphic rape features in many many movies.
    I saw the unrated version of human centipede. I also think if u saw human centipede 2 - your opinion may be a little different about it being banned ?

    Where does banning end though??
    Books don't have classification. The Exorcist, for example.
    One of the scenes they left out was of the girl masturbating with the cross.
    Will we start banning books too?
    'Cause I gotta be honest with you, my imagination can be far, far worse than any movie I've ever seen.

    Conversationally, watch the movie "Feed." Gods it was disgusting.

Some of us are able to separate fiction from non-fiction - obviously you can't...that's fine - then don't watch the movies then! But don't put down others!

    That goes for all of you BTW not just this member. Just getting a bit annoyed seeing all the implications in this thread.
    absolutely agreed

    It wasn't on mine.
    Did they do a remake of it??

    Anyway, my point was, what's in books is a lot worse than what's on a movie. And if the movie is based on a book, a lot of the time it's censored to all buggery as well, so... Where does it end??

    Ha! I just looked it up too. Suddenly the southpark episode 'Humancentipad' makes more sense! Quality entertainment.

    Yeah. Yours got all the bits they decided were too unpleasant to put into it and got cut out. I have the one that's.. The opposite of that.
    Oh dear that sentence doesn't even make sense to me. Hope it makes sense to you though.

    Default Torture Porn?

    I've watched some of the 2nd human centipede and the uncut version of the first. The second was too boring.

    Whoever said banning movies makes them more appealing is correct. Some movies I have seen just to see if they're bad enough to be worthy of banning. A Serbian Film is one. It actually could be appropriately labelled torture porn and nobody would disagree. The whole storyline is a man having lots of gruesome sex and such. It's quite revolting in its loose plot and also in the actual images... There is a particularly disturbing scene that I'm fairly certain most people here would find horrific and revolting.

    Apparently it's symbolic or some such nonsense.

    Anyone who thinks human centipede or saw is as bad as it gets... Well, it's not.

    Different things get to different people though. As I said earlier, I can watch someone be hacked up to tiny pieces... I mostly find it irritating they need to use extreme gore to make audiences forget that the acting and storyline is crap. But rape scenes? No way. I remember those and I can't get over them. I'm not even a rape victim so it's not some sort of trigger. I also can't handle animal cruelty. Depicted or not, I close my eyes and cover my ears if I know it's coming. I just can't hack it.

    I think ratings are suitable. A lot of these films are rated r anyway. Grown adults should be allowed to choose if they want to watch them or not.
