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.
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.
While not as fucked up or awful as A Serbian Film, it isn't any good or better in that regard. This is still a fucking messed up movie from the mind of a person who is out to shock and appall anyone who either has the accidental misfortune of seeing this movie or the daredevils who challenge it's gruesomeness (such as myself). This shouldn't be looked at again. As a side-note, that a sequel was made is horrifying...
