Human Centipede

human centipede

You know those movies you hear about that either made people faint, barf, or psychologically scared them? Sometimes, in the case of the Exorcist, it becomes a pop culture icon. Years ago, we got the Human Centipede…

We begin with the exploits of two American college girls in Germany that get lost in the woods during a storm after there car breaks down; but have no fear, they find a not rapey scientist guy alone in a tricked out house. Well, the totally not creepy guy drugs them and they wake up in a basement laboratory with a dude who doesn’t speak a word of English and is really pissed. Creepy doctor explains his fascination with Siamese twins and how he plans to connect his three victims mouth to anus, mouth to anus. After one of the girl’s failed attempts at escape, he goes through with the surgery, creating his beloved Human Centipede..

So, to do this review, I have to put this into perspective: Human Centipede is a movie totally dependent of where your gross out threshold lies. If you are on the lower end of the spectrum, you will likely find this movie shocking and creepy, if you have a higher threshold, you may find morbid laughs in it. I see both but I found it as a mildly entertaining WTF film. There isn’t really any outlandish gore or nudity, its shock is all in the premise and the Dr. I do like the sad ending. In the end, it’s kinda meh but worth checking out for curiosity sake. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

  1. Is there any redeeming quality? Like “Serbian film” is another film that kinda falls in the same spectrum but at least the people who made it made it for a reason and it generally has great acting and cinematography so I really enjoyed it. I’ve wanted to watch Human centipede but if there isnt anything more than pure shock factor i might skip it.

    1. the best way I can describe it is if you can laugh at something absurd and messed up, go into it for a few laughs but I agree with you on Serbian Film. If Serbian is Halloween, Centipede is Friday the 13th if that makes sense.
