Empire has published Dutch-born filmmaker Tom Six's response to the British Board of Film Classification's ban on The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) in the United Kingdom. Empire explains that "the censoring of the F-word, ironically, is Six's." See below:

Thank you BBFC for putting spoilers of my movie on your website and thank you for banning my film in this exceptional way. Apparently I made an horrific horror-film, but shouldn't a good horror film be horrific? My dear people it is a f****cking MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not. If people can't handle or like my movies they just don't watch them. If people like my movies they have to be able to see it any time, anywhere also in the UK.

In the United States, people who like Six's movies will be able to watch The Human Centipede 2 via IFC Films later this year.

In addition to The Human Centipede (First Sequence), Six directed the following:

  • Gay in Amsterdam (2004), dubbed "The first Dutch film in Amsterdam gay scene" and described by one IMDb reviewer as "insulting if it weren't so stupid";
  • Honeyz (2007), about two teenagers who get in trouble while away from home;
  • I Love Dries (2008), in which hunky folk singer Dries Roelvink (as himself) is kidnapped by two fans who want his sperm so they can his baby. Complications arise because (in the film) Roelvink is sterile.
