Serb group urges ban of Angelina Jolie's war movie

Land-of-Bllod-and-Honey

The head of a group for Serbs held prisoner during Bosnia’s 1992-95 war says Angelina Jolie’s movie In the Land of Blood and Honey should be banned in the Serb-run part of the country. Branislav Djukic of the Bosnian Serb Association of Camp Prisoners told the Associated Press on Tuesday that although he has seen only the trailer, he can already say the movie “is showing lies” and portraying Serbs as the only ones who raped women during the war.

Jolie’s movie will be released in the U.S. on Dec. 23 and is a heavy drama about a Serb soldier who finds his ex-lover, a Muslim Bosnian woman, among sex slaves in a camp.
The movie was praised by a selected audience of 11 non-Serb war victim groups who saw it in Sarajevo earlier this month.

Check out the poster for 'Human Centipede 2': It's got legs!

Human-Centipede2-Martin

Writer-director Tom Six’s already infamous horror sequel Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) received its world premiere last night at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. According to one review, the movie “redefines the word ‘disgusting,‘” which I suspect Mr. Six will take as a compliment. The film’s distributors IFC have also released a poster for HC2, which is actually rather tasteful — at least, compared to pretty much everything else connected with this franchise — but is still just NSFW-ish enough that we felt it best to place the sucker after the jump.

Take a look and tell us what you think.

The banning of 'The Human Centipede II': It's good to know that England is keeping censorship alive. And, of course, helping to market the very movie it's banning.

When I heard on Monday that the upcoming gross-out horror film The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) had been banned in Britain, I confess that the news gave me a few goose pimples of nostalgia. Banned! Censored! Stamped with an X! Because it was just too nasty to be watched by civilized beings! The very notion that a feature-length motion picture could still be that shocking and grotesque — that it could show something so forbidden that it had to be, you know, forbidden — took me back to a previous era, when movies that smashed taboos could really generate some infamy, could seem almost outside the law. Of course, the way it works now, when horror junkies routinely seek out and gorge upon the most vile and extreme movies they can find, the announcement that the British Board of Film Classification had denied Human Centipede II an “18 certificate,” effectively squashing the right for it to be shown in any form in the UK, basically became a signal to those same horror junkies the world over. The signal said: Here, in case there was any doubt, is a movie you most definitely want to see. READ FULL STORY
