***Update: Read the review for Human Centipede and the promo trailer and theatrical trailer Human Centipede 2 now!***

I first heard about this movie at Sundance over dinner (odd place for such a conversation but that’s Sundance for you) from a director friend of mine and thought that he was trying to play a trick on me but no, no… Human Centipede, a story about a crazy doctor who wants to connect a group of people from anus to mouth (would definitely want to be #1 in that chain) and remove their knee caps, is all too real.

I don’t really know what else to say about this film… for some reason it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth (so bad… I know). Check out the trailer and more information on the film below, if your DARE!

For however crazy the film is, it has been well received and won a number of awards at film festivals including, Best Horror Feature and Best Horror Actor at Fantastic Fest 2009 and Best Picture at Screamfest 2009.



A one-of-a-kind experience that is guaranteed to shock and divide audiences, Dutch filmmaker Tom Six’s twisted biological horror film, “The Human Centipede” confidently goes where few films have dared to go. In addition to its shocking imagery, the film also features an indelibly villainous performance by Dieter Laser, whose brilliant and demented Dr. Heiter is sure to soon join the ranks of Freddy, Jason and Jigsaw whenever true horror icons are discussed.

During a stopover in Germany in the middle of a carefree road trip through Europe, two American girls find themselves alone at night when their car breaks down in the woods. Searching for help they find only an isolated villa, whose mysterious owner, Dr Heiter, takes them in for the night. The next day they awake to find themselves in the basement, trapped in a terrifying makeshift hospital with another one of the doctor’s abductees. Dr Heiter explains to the three of them that he is retired surgeon who had specialized in separating Siamese twins. However his three “patients” are not about to be separated, but joined together in a horrific operation. He plans to be the first to connect people, one to the next, via their gastric system, and in doing so bring to life his sick lifetime fantasy: ‘the human centipede’.

Will you go to see it when it’s in select theaters on April 30 and available on Video-on-Demand on April 28th?
