Back in June, the British Board of Film Classification rejected The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) on the basis that it was obscene, "would risk potential harm", and "would be unacceptable to the public". They also had mentioned that no amount of edits to the film would make allow them to grant it a rating. After multiple months of discussions and editing, the film has been granted an 18-rating.

According to Empire, 32 cuts have been made to the film and a total of 2 minutes and 37 seconds have been removed. Eureka, who is distributing the film in the UK had the following to say:

"We are really pleased that after nearly 4 months of detailed discussion and debate, we have been able to reach an agreement with the BBFC and to produce a very viable cut of the film which will both excite and challenge its fans. Naturally we have a slight disappointment that we have had to make cuts, but we feel that the storyline has not been compromised and the level of horror has been sustained.”

There is no UK release date at this time, but the US limited theatrical release begins on October 7th. The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) is directed by Tom Six and stars Laurence R. Harvey, Ashlynn Yennie, Dominic Borelli, Vivien Bridson, Lee Harris, Peter Charlton, Bill Hutchens, Dan Burman, Daniel Jude Gennis, Kandace Caine, Maddi Black, Lucas Hansen, Georgina Goodrick and Emma Lock.
