The only problem about this film is that it takes itself way too seriously. The only problem about this problem is that it makes the whole thing a total farce. Approach this movie in a funny/gory way like Brain Dead and you got a cult classic instead of crap.
It redefines the "ass-to-mouth" porn fetish. A grotesque fairy tale that takes the torture porn genre to a new level (ie, the basement). similar to "Hostel", "Human Centipede" is a Rick Steven's one way trip to Euro Hell. Saw this at the priceless Midnight Mass series @ The Bridge in San Francisco. I must confess that I felt nauseated at times, and no, I won't blame the spoiled popcorn.
A work of total genius! A German surgeon kidnaps 3 tourists and joins them surgically mouth-to-anus to form a human centipede with a single digestive system; better than anything Dr Mengele could have dreamt up! This film brings a new dimension to the word "horror". And there's no happy ending either! Indeed, the ending is the sickest thing about it, which is why it gets the THUMBS UP from Edna! Don't miss it!
The first time I saw this trailer, I was more horrified than I had ever been in my life. So of course, I had to watch it. And you know what? This is a pretty good horror film. It's got the right amount of cheese, the right amount of horror. It's definitely underrated, but I do totally understand why you wouldn't want to watch it.
No. Just... no. Once you know the concept, you don't actually have to see the movie. There's no gore to speak of, so torture porn fans (not me) are going to be disappointed, but there's also nothing that substantial going on. The three are tortured and the villain tries to train them like dogs. Throw in a couple of cops, and there's your movie. So damn contrived and boring, and riding with shock value.
