Human Centipede is a cinematic travesty and shouldn't be viewed by anyone!

Wolf creek was pretty scary, I don't know if I'd 'let' a 15 year old watch it, but I also wouldn't keel over in shock if they did.

It would depend on the child.

ETA: I love horror and don't get scared by it, if my 15 yr old was like me I would watch it first and see. If my child was like my sister or my nephew - hell no.

Human centipede - I haven't seen it yet, but I'm guessing no.

I wouldnt let them, but then if they are watching it at someone elses house (as teens do) there isnt much I can do about it. Just like my parents never let us watch any of those movies, but movies nights at friends houses meant I was exposed to horror movies and Bad Boy Bubby and other such movies...unbeknownst to their parents.

Absolutely not.  For starters, they're both rated R18+.  

And secondly, from what I can tell from the descriptions of both of them (particularly the former), they're movies that you'd just feel a little worse for having watched.  A kid would be better off using those couple of hours for something less utterly without merit.

Yep.

My grandma rented "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" for my sister and I when we were 10 and 12. We are horror movie buffs who used to pick on the movies for the bits that didn't look real. At the end of the movie, we used to watch it in rewind and watch victims come back to life. lol. We never got scared. We were taught from a young age that it is acting, not real.

I dont think ANYONE should see Human Centipede. Big fat NO.

As for Wolf Creek, possibly... I only got through 20 mins of it, but I'm a bit of a sook when it comes to those types of movies rolleyes.gif

Human centipede...absolutely not. I wouldn't even support it if they were 40! It's a disgusting vile movie.

Wolf creek is the 'better' of the two, but a 15 year old, I would still say no as I think it's R18 and I found it very gory myself, and Im an adult!

Wolf creek would depend upon the child.

The scream movies were released when i was that age & they were very popular viewing.

I've heard about the human centerpede & the thought of it is enough to make me ill, let alone watching it - though i'm a queesy whimp.

I've never felt worse for watching horror flick, I actually tend to laugh through some of them.

I wouldn't be worried about a 15 year old being scared or knowing it's not real.  I'm just not interested in condoning the idea of sexual abuse and torture as entertainment.

For me - that level of desensitization is precisely the problem.

I don't have a 15 year old but I have to agree with Sevenyears on this one.

Wolf Creek, I wouldn't be terribly upset if a 15 year old saw it. I didn't think it was that bad- I kept waiting for the really terrible bits that had people hysterical with fear and then it finished.  cool.gif

The Human Centipede- no I wouldn't. It sounds absolutely foul and until I'm willing to sit through it (which would be never) then my 15 year old wouldn't be watching it. THAT one has me  sick.gif

Changed my opinion on Wolf Creek- while I don't remember it as any worse than some other movies, I reread the synopsis and I'd hold off as long as I could.

I agree with that. One tiny glimpse into that movie with a trailer is enough for me to wonder WTF is wrong with some people, making stuff like that.  blink.gif  sick.gif

I haven't heard of the Human Centipede.


DO NOT GOOGLE IT!!! If you must, just read text. No video's. TRUST ME.

As for the OP, no, I would not. DEFINITELY to Human Centipede and I'd certainly rather not to Wolf Creek.

Human centipede should never have been allowed to be mad into a movie in the first place.

I think allowing a 15year old to watch such filth should be considered abuse.

I've seen both and wouldn't recommend it, my 19 year old brother won't watch them.

Number 2 had 32 scenes cut from it before it could get a rating in the UK as they originally refused to rate it, Australia rated it, then banned it then re-rated it.

You are kidding right?

Do you even have to ask?

both movies are rated R

No way would I let them watch either of them especially human centipede.  I've heard enough about it that I never want to see it!

#21 rabbit hyde

Posted 24 September 2012 - 05:21 PM

It would depend on the 15 year old.

I've been a huge movie buff from a very early age and loved horror especially.  I never got nightmares or felt troubled by it.  I was always fascinated by the talent of the make up artists and the cinematography and everything about the movie.

If my child was like me at that age,  I probably would.  I'd probably be watching it with them and dissecting it in detail afterwards.

#22 Amy 1976

Wolf creek is R rated to it is not meant to be watched by anyone under 18 year of age.

Personally, I wouldn't let a 15 year old watch it because I'd worry that it would make them fearful. It also deals with some pretty macabre / perverted topics which don't seem to be suitable for teenagers. Once they've seen it, they can't unsee it so I'd be inclined to wait.

I saw Wolf Creek at the cinema when it was first released. By the time the movie ended, I reckon about half of the audience had left. It was just so harrowing. I wish I'd left.

Nobody should ever watch The Human Centipede.

Bad boy bubby was one I watched and I actually felt sorry for him. There are some disturbing scenes but if you look behind all that, you see that the story wasn't actually too bad.

Where were the rape scenes in it?
I watched it because I read all the comments of DD13's schoolfriends who had watched it, and do not remember a rape scene. BTW none of the kids have seen it. It is definitely something I would not let them watch.

OMG I didn't know there was a third. I haven't even watched the trailer for the 2nd movie.

They can get it on the internet or Itunes which is where I found it.
If a teenager wants a movie or game, then no matter what the rating it is out there for them to get their hands on if they want it bad enough.



For those who like Aiden on Neighbours, DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT watch the movie ROAD TRAIN.
