    Keeping in mind movies like Saló, Caligula, Cannibal Holocaust... you are right,

    But what about movies like Hostel 2-3 or Saw 1-2-3-4-5 or The Final Destination 1-2-3-4-5?

    While in Salo, Caligula and other European movies, sex is mixed with gore (and shit!), it seems that movies made in USA tend to separate sex and gore... at least until the coming of ...The human centipede 2

    2 girls 1 cup and swap.avi were not exactly commercial successes.

    Human Centipede 1 was a good laugh.

    But as A豆腐 mentioned regarding part 2, films which portray sick perversions are too often poisoned by the moralfaggotrous political agendas of their directors. Salo is a case in point. I watched it for the first time recently and was disappointed. Pasolini makes sure that the monstrosities and abuses of the elites are judged by the mournful faces of the women and children, often in sentimental closeups. This way all the forced shit-eating and child-murdering can be accepted as having didactic value, and the story can become a political commentary on the dangers of "fascism."

    Of course this is totally contradictory to the spirit of deSade, whose works were used in quite a different way during the French Revolution, that is, as damning examples of arisocratic pornography full of philosophical justifications for abuse of the poor and underprivileged. If you read deSade you will see that even the most disgusting evils are never judged but are in fact sincerely (if intellectually) celebrated.

    Films should never have political meaning. For this reason I think American Psycho is far more hardcore than Salo, or the Human Centipedes.

    "the most disgusting evils are never judged but are in fact sincerely (if intellectually) celebrated." Good comment. I would edit the parentheses to read: "(more often than not, intellectually)".

    In Hollywood, the studio usually wants a PG-13 rating if possible, because making the movie accessible to kids provides the potential to make infinitely more money than appealing only to sick perverts.

    if you make a huge invest to make the movie, that´s the secure way to make profit. I mean you can not compare the box office results without consider the budgets. A shitty movie made with little money (for example, The Blair Witch Project or human centipede 1 - 2), can be very profitable, even when the box office results are not amazing.

    Dando, wtf is swap.avi??

    is anyone actually capable of being more sick than this?

    @Cat, The director is already working on a third film, titled The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). And he said the third film will "make the last one look like a Disney film. We're going to shoot the third film entirely in America, and it's going to be my favourite... It's going to upset a lot of people."
