About that ‘Human Centipede 2’ Trailer – Oh Whatever

I’m more grossed out actually by the kid who appears to be whacking it to the trailer than what is probably happening on the screen. I don’t know about this one guys, I laughed heartily at the first Human Centipede but it’s looking like this sequel is going to annoy me. The annoyance will not come from the subject matter but just from the film’s existence. I have problems when filmmakers make movies for the soul purpose of shock value which from all accounts Human Centipede 2 was designed to do. The humorous vibe from the first film has been replaced by let’s just do some sick shit and see what happens.

According reports, there is a bunch of depraved nuttery involved and personally I can’t see any artistic or societal value in the description. It really sounds like shock for shock’s sake. This is not A Serbian Film , which had a point. Tom Six (Director/Writer of the series) said the sequel would be much more graphic and disturbing, making the first film seem like “My Little Pony compared with part two.”

The film centers on an antagonist called Martin (Laurence Harvey), who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the film within the film, The Human Centipede (First Sequence). In the DVD, a surgeon kidnaps three people and surgically connects them mouth-to-anus. Martin masturbates as he watches the film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis. He subsequently creates his own twelve-person “human centipede” and gains sexual gratification from the pain, humiliation and suffering of his victims. He is shown to become sexually aroused whenever a member of his centipede is forced to defecate into the mouth of the victim behind them. Martin rapes the woman at the rear of the centipede with barbed wire wrapped around his penis.[2]

Looks like Six went all out to make it happen. But, who am I to judge what’s art? Is this art or bullshit? Since, the MPAA will probably never let this see sunlight state side, I’m not sure of the release dates. So, I’ll wait before I bash something I haven’t seen too much.

Update. Looks like it will come out in limited release on October 7th. (Probably EXTREMELY limited.)

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) – Sprechen Sie Nuts!

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.
