I know I’m sick but this movie made me giggle out aloud more than once. First off, the premise of The Human Centipede (First Sequence) it is so utterly ridiculous you have to laugh at it and makes me wonder what bong was writer Tom Six hitting while he was writing. You know the back-story already because it is definitely one we’ve seen many, many times before. Two vapid women go on a road trip in Germany and their car of course breaks down. Instead of the inbred rednecks we usually meet on road trips gone awry we meet the most fucked up doctor in all the land.
Doctor Heiter (Dieter Laser) or I think he should have been called Herr von Whackedouthismind has been conducting experiments on travelers that have lost their way. No, not just any experiment will do for Herr von Whackedouthismind; he wants to create a human centipede, no seriously. And that he does my friends. And yes, Herr Nuts does attach them “that” way…anus to mouth. Now, I know what you’re thinking how can anyone in his or her right mind sit through something like this and giggle? Well, for one the really disgusting parts are covered by veils, so no you don’t see the bodily functions you know take place. In other words if you can get past what you know is happening you can sit through it actually quite comfortably.
Now, I know all over the internet there are these hot little debates going on about the symbolism and deeper meaning behind the film, and I’m sure some of you will find them as well But, me lovelies what I came away with was this is a movie that had a great twisted story line and in my opinion a humorous take on an old road horror story. See it!
The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is available On-Demand and in limited release.
