Director Tom Six shocked the world when he released his horror film The Human Centipede (First Sequence). The film was considered sick and disgusting by most because of its incredibly silly story involving a lunatic doctor attaching his patient’s from ass to mouth, forming a human centipede. What surprised me was how weak the film actually was in terms of blood and gore. Sure, the idea was creepy and uncomfortable but the actual execution was rather tame. I’ve seen dozens of brutal films that are far more disturbing than The Human Centipede.
The film did well and created a widespread of comments across the web between casual moviegoers and die-hard horror bloggers. Tom Six mentioned a sequel while filming the first film and he made it clear that the film would be 100% medically inaccurate, since the first one was completely accurate. The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) is going in the total opposite direction of the first film. The sequel is supposed to be gorier and more insane than its predecessor and I for one can’t wait to check it out.
I was disappointed with the first film in terms of it being a shocking film, but I still found it kind of hilarious. The second one looks like it’s going to be really weird and probably pretty poor in terms of film quality, but still an experience none the less. One of our staff members, Amy, had a chance to see the film and she wasn’t a fan, you can check out her review here.
I’ll leave you with the latest full trailer for the film. Give it a few minutes to soak in. Should we be excited or offended?
The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) is scheduled to hit theaters in the U.S. on October 7th, 2011.
