The Human Centipede Part 2 : Full Sequence (2011)
I’m sure all the deviant degenerates enrolled in this class have done their homework, and are most certainly aware of the Human Centipede films. Some people seem to write them off as pointless gross-outs for the lowest common denominator. Roger Ebert gave both films zero stars and blasted them for being merit-less. They definitely are nasty films, notorious just for the concept. But director Tom Six seems to be smarter than his critics give him credit for, and he definitely has made films that worked.
I assume you all have seen the original Dutch film where a German doctor kidnaps three tourists and joins them surgically, mouth to anus, forming a “human centipede”.
Well, the protagonist of Part 2, Martin, has seen it. In fact, he apparently watches it repeatedly on his lap-top while he works as a security guard in some dark parking garage. Despite the fact that Martin has no spoken dialogue, we learn he is an odd, socially maladjusted weirdo who lives with his deranged mother.
Without a doubt, the last half hour of this film features some of the most depraved and disgusting shit ever put on film. It works on your senses on a level rarely seen, pushes boundaries far enough for you to question yourself and why the hell you are even watching this.
But that is the thing. It does work. If you are watching a movie called Human Centipede 2, and don’t know what you are getting in to, you are the only one to blame. I will admit, it takes a lot to gross me out, but this movie goes to some stomach-churning places.
Director Tom six knows we all came for the spectacle. This guy says he can gross us out, let’s see what he’s got.
And he brings it. He has plans for a third Centipede film, to complete his trilogy, which he says will make this one look like a Disney film…
We will see. In the meantime, check out this one for the sickos. You have never seen anything like it, to be sure. Those of you with a weak stomach or easily offended, it seems obvious for you to skip this one.
