The controversial sequel to shock horror movie The Human Centipede has spectacularly bombed at the U.K. box office, pulling in just $1,507 (£942) in ticket sales.
The follow-up to the 2010 film, about a German doctor who kidnaps three tourists and surgically joins them mouth to anus to form a human centipede, made headlines in Britain earlier this year (11) after officials initially banned it for its graphically violent plotline.
The restriction was later lifted after director Tom Six cut the most shocking scenes to comply with British Board of Film Classification officials' rules - but despite the hype, the movie failed to pull in audiences when it was released last weekend (04-06Oct11).
Ticket sales at 10 cinemas in the U.K. brought in just $1,507 - compared to the $9,832 (£6,145) from 14 screens for the first film.
