The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
The Human Centipede is about a couple female tourists out on a European road trip who become stranded off the beaten path when their car breaks down. When they try to find help, they come upon a beautiful house owned by a creepy older man who identifies himself as Dr.Heiter, a retired and world renowned doctor who specializes in separation of Siamese Twins. Soon things turn bad and they become subjects in a sick and twisted experiment to connect 3 humans through their Gastrointestinal system.
Once the girls are joined together with an Asian man, we really see the true madness of this Dr.Haiter. He tries to train them to fetch his newspaper, and obey like an obedient dog. He even cries uncontrollably in happiness and wonderment at his mad creation when they first start moving together as one creature. He truly is a sick and scary individual who noone would ever want to come across.
This movie is sick and twisted, but in a day and age where everything seems to be a “remake” or “re-imagining” of something else this was refreshingly original despite its odd premise. There is some unquestionably graphic violence/gore in the movie and some of it even had me kind of cringing at the thought of what was I was seeing but still I was drawn into the mad world of Dr.Haiter and his victims. The fact that the Human Centipede has the subtitle of “First Sequence” means they obviously have plans for a sequel and from the looks of what was said on IMDB, there is one slated for a 2011 release.
If you’re a fan of horror and don’t mind a strange subject matter, this is something you should Check it Out!
