Submission + - No Human Centipede for Australia (smh.com.au)

Dr Black Adder writes: Despite being classified R18+ in May, The Human Centipede 2 has now been re-rated to RC (Refused Classification) based on an application by the NSW Attorney-General. The quote from the panel which refused classification is "''level of depictions of violence has an impact which is very high''

It was my naive understanding that we had an R18 rating for media with high levels of this kind of content. The unfortunate fallout is that a lot of horror-loving Australians will be unable to support the creators of HC2, with pirating the only way for them to enjoy it. :-(
