Three People Connected By One Digestive Tract…WTF?
The Human Centipede is all about WTF moments.
This is an extremely unsettling film in which a mad scientist decides to create a human centipede by connecting three people together ass-to-mouth. Now there is nothing inherently wrong with going ass-to-mouth, if you’re in the heat of passion. Sure it’s a little perverted but hormones rule from time to time.
In the case of Centipede, ass-to-mouth is all about creating one interconnected human lifeform. The disturbing nature of this film will probably fly right over the head of the happy-go-lucky film viewer who likes the SAW, Hostel, and other torture porn style horror films. I found this movie rather difficult to watch the first time around and for good reason. Filmmaker Tom Six places in front of you an idea that in reality is completely plausible – if someone were really sick enough to attempt it.
Yes, that’s what I said, the idea is plausible. What’s more, the screenwriter takes the concept seriously, establishing a strong narrative and deftly tackling the challenge of making three people cease to be individuals and instead a three sectioned life form that need to work together to survive.
There are a few scenes that will have veteran movie buffs cringing and a finally that is well worth the wait. I’ll just say that you don’t want to be the middle section.
Q: Is this a good movie?
A: Yes, surprisingly well made and well acted.
Q: Is there nudity in this movie?
A: Yep, but if you get off on watching this then you’ve got some serious issues.
Q: Is this a good date movie?
A: Um…. I going to go with probably not. Now if you do see it on a date and you both enjoy it then you’ve probably found a keeper.
Q: Where can I see it?
A: I recommend Netflix instant view, but I’m sure you can rent it also.
Q: Isn’t there a sequel?
Yep, but it’s even grosser and more disturbing that this one. Beware.
