Synopsis: (from IMDb) Inspired by the fictional Dr. Heiter, disturbed loner Martin dreams of creating a 12-person centipede and sets out to realize his sick fantasy.
My Quick Review: What a gruesome movie. After all the backlash Tom Six got with The Human Centipede, he made a movie filled with everything that was missing in the first one and only suggested (teeth being pulled out, knee being severed, skins being ripped apart, people eating shit….). And to top it off we have barb wire on c..k and a baby being killed (by its own mom!!).
This is like a big Fu.k you to all the critics of the first movie: “you wanna see disgusting, I’m going to give you the worst you’ve ever seen” And yes, the movie delivers some of the most disgusting and sick perversions ever put on film (not THE worst though).
I still prefer the first one in the sense that it feels more true to the filmmaker’s vision and nobody can top Dieter Laser’s performance. Nobody? Well, first time actor Laurence Harvey is quite close to perfection in his performance as Martin the madman obsessed with The Human Centipede. With his peculiar physique and creepy mannerisms you could not dream of a better lead villain. Say what you want about Tom Six, he knows how to choose his villains.
Th first movie was more psychological, the Human Centipede II is a gore-fest, I’m wondering what’s in store for The third movie. Can’t wait for it!
My Rating: 5.5/10
Director: Tom Six
