Editorial Reviews

100% Medically accurate.
The compelling simplicity of Saw. The stylish dread of Eraserhead. The black humor of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Those are the benchmarks of horror that the outrageous Dutch film The Human Centipede matches. The plot is diabolically simple: two stranded American tourists are given shelter by a famed German doctor (a maniacally intense Dieter Laser) who made his fortune surgically separating conjoined twins. Now his mad genius is pushing the doctor to do the reverse. He tells the women that they will be surgically attached to a Japanese businessman mouth to buttocks, one after the other and thus will be born a new creature: the human centipede! Compellingly perverse, hilarious, and shockingly straightforward, Dutch director Tom Six s new film is hands-down the most memorable horror film of the year.

Then just crawl away while he's unconscious.
I guess the next thought I had about this movie was what would make someone think up something like this and then make a film about it?
This is no blood or gore horror movie but it's sick in so many ways.

Most of us loony horror fans have sat around and had that conversation where we come up with some of the most deranged and gruesome ideas we can just for the fun of doing it. Well, Todd Six has had this conversation, and then he went ahead and made a movie out of it.
So, here we have Human Centipede, a movie generating a cult film buzz based solely on it's gimmicky and oddball premise.......and what a premise it is! I do have to give it full points for originality. However, the gimmick is where all originality ceases. The gimmick is really all it has going for it. Otherwise this movie plays out pretty much like any other recent torture porn flick. Remove the Cronenbergism from the film and you could easily have this wacko doctor running a basement torture chamber where he hacks off victims' limbs to create artwork or forces people to listen to Nickelback, or whatever the hell they like to do in torture porn films anymore. Basically it's on par with the standard straight-to-video type horror, but with a bit of an edge. That's really all I can say about it.
I really do have to give kudos to the three principal actors who make up the "centipede". They're really not required to do much heavy acting per se, but they have to spend the bulk of the film dirt smeared,(mostly)naked, crying, and in an all around degrading position. They're definitely troopers.
All in all, I wouldn't let the hype get your hopes up. It's got a bit of entertainment value, but it's not nearly as disturbing, frightening , violent or gory as you're lead to believe. To the average Iron Man 2 goer, maybe. But aside from the "centipede", there's nothing here that horror fans haven't seen done before.....and better.

This is not a horror movie. It is a movie about human torture. Plain and simple.

The hype about this movie is the confusion that this is art, or even falls within the realm of the horror (or psychological drama) genre. It doesn't. At first I thought this was going to be a very dark-humor "it's so bad, it's good" type movie. No.

It's not scary, it's not humorous, it's not entertaining, and it is very poorly made on a number of levels.

It's not the gross-out factor that bothers me so much. It's that the movie is really about nothing other than a close-up look of human torture with no point or meaning. Mean-spirited is an understatement. Seriously.

If you like horror movies, skip this.

If you like watching people suffer, being mutilated, and being tortured, then you will enjoy this movie.

I could not decide if this one deserves 5 stars or 1. At first this movie seems like the ultimate low budget, cheesy horror movie cliche. Lost, flat tire, no phone reception, wander to crazy guy house. This is going to suck. Then the wacko doctor explains in detail exactly what he is going to do. WHAT!!!! It is sick and twisted beyond imagination. It is like slowing down to get a good look as you drive past a bad car crash. Then you soon realize that it is nothing like. This is nothing as nice and clean as a horrific crash. It is something that would make Dr Mengele squirm. It takes a little while for it to settle in just how terrible it really is.

The current horror films seem to have a goal of being as gruesome and in your face as possible. The blood and gore in this one is at the PG level. It is obvious that it is intentionally restrained. The SAW movies are as gruesome as they can possibly be, but you forget the story as soon as it is over. Human Centipede has pretty much no graphic images at all. The most disturbing images in the movie are poorly made line drawings.

So does this one get 1 star or 5. It gets 1 star because there is nothing even remotely entertaining about. When it is over you will wish you had not seen it. It gets 5 stars because it is one of the rare truly original movies. You cannot compare it to anything. I have never seen a movie that is anything even remotely like it. The most horrific images in the movie are crude line drawings. And they are more disturbing than any scene in a big budget gore flick. Overall it was fairly well done. A good movie is one that you remember, a bad one is one that you will forget. This is one that you will wish you could get out of your head. Not going to happen! This one is stuck in your head for good.

Here's a film to bring people together--literally. Director Tom Six came up with the concept of this sick story from a joke made with friends. This joke was aimed at child molesters, suggesting as punishment they should have their mouths surgically sewn "to the (rear end) of fat truck drivers". When Mr. Six pitched this idea to potential investors, he omitted this central aspect of the plot. The rest is underground horror history.

The Human Centipede starts off irritatingly derivative. A couple of beautiful ladies from New York are touring through Europe. Sheesh, didn't you two gals watch HOSTEL or TAKEN? This is obviously a bad idea. They get invited to a party, have a tire blowout in the middle of bfe, and of course have no cell phone reception. I know, that setup has been beaten to death. But new levels of inconceivable evil are about to be woven in.

For me, the most unnerving part of this film was the main scoundrel himself, the wicked Dr. Heiter (Dieter Laser). He just looks superbly creepy as all hell. Plus his detatched, cold persona will send shivers down your spine.

This acclaimed doctor had received recognition from his brilliant skill in seperating conjoined twins. Now his next effed up surgical plan is quite the opposite. He dreams of making new creatures that share a single digestive system. Sick! The portions of one meal go through three different people. I can't think of a more humiliating, degrading, just flat out awful predicament.

This film does surprisingly show some restraint in unleashing this atrocity upon the viewer. It contains relatively little blood or nudity. We're left to witness the extreme awkwardness of the victims as they cope with the hopelessness of their situation.

How healthy is human amygdala, or zen of adrenalin level maintenence

Very interesting, makes a kind of sense. I remember when the internet had the video of the death of Daniel Pearl (death by sawing off head, slowly). I heard alot of people's opinion/reaction to what was visible/or not.
I could not imagine watching it, ever. Even official experiment... Read More
