Horror fans may be aware of the 2009 film The Human Centipede, the most disturbing movie I’ve EVER seen besides Boys Don’t Cry (for different reasons)
The Human Centipede makes The Hills Have Eyes and Hostel look like Disney movies. I turned it off, around halfway through after watching it on Netflix.
If you’re not familiar, it’s a story of a sick doctor who kidnaps strangers and sews them together. Three people, two of them with their mouths sewn to the person in front of them’s anus, then the one in front is the “lucky” one, if you can picture that.
It’s horribly agonizing to watch… and with the cult success of the first movie directed and written by Tom Six, a second is on its way titled The Human Centipede II: Full Sequence.
The second movie holds within it a new oddity, awareness of the first film. The story of a man who becomes “sexually obsessed” with the first Human Centipede movie, and decides to fulfill his own fantasies, creating his own pet centipede/human string of disgustingness.
One more random thing about this, I saw a copy of the unrated edition of The Human Centipede: First Sequence for sale at Target! A store famous for banning Kanye West’s album cover for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which depicted a cartoonish naked white woman straddling a black man.
What is going on there?
[P.S.: DON’T WATCH THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE I OR II! This is a serious warning]
