I’m a guy who knows how to stomach a horror movie. I’ve sat through every Saw, Nightmare On Elm Street… without even flinching. Really what I’ve been missing in my movie watching is something that makes you sick… I mean physically sick.
Welcome to The Human Centipede: First Sequence. Director Tom Six is no stranger to the weird and intense(see: Gay in Amsterdam). But I think he’s pushed the horror medium to new, uncomfortable places.
The plot is really fucking hard to desribe… but I’ll try
The movie takes place in Germany… and there’s a surgeon who’s one of the best in the world at separating conjoined twins. His one dream is to create a human centipede by attaching three people mouth and anus. Yes, mouth to anus.
This movie is not of the weak of heart, or stomach. I had just eaten dinner before watching. I don’t recommend doing it.
When all is said and done, this is a VERY intelligent, very well shot movie once you get over that first shock of seeing three people sawn together and shitting in each other’s mouths. The most disturbing moment in the film comes when the surgeon first explains his experiment while pointing at his crude diagrams. It’s crazy.
It’s got the gore for the Saw set… and psychological shit for the intelligent filmmaker.
