just why? :'(
so sickenly busy. Also now my life is ruined by that film.
I politely declined. Centipedes are one of the worst creatures ever.
that the person in front, poops into the person behind's mouth?
I don't understand the creepiness...personally I think it sounds a bit silly.
but what about it seems scary?
just a bit revolting.
but it's meant to be a horror movie, they should just make a new genre of films that are just called "sick" or something, there's so many 'gross' films out there that get called horrors, but just aren't scary.
in that the movie will probably suck, the concept is tragic
But the one on the front end would be a right lucky fucker
What about the one at the end? Think about how you'd feel with someone's mouth grafted onto your arsehole...
P.S. This movie STILL looks like the greatest film yet to be released.
got someone to do it for you lol
what is this all about then?
It's about an evil surgeon who traps people in his isolated cabin and sews them together, arse to mouth. For the lulz presumably.
I thought this was one of those stupid record attempts and they'd made a massive conga line or something...
this has literally disturbed me to absolutely no end. i actually couldn't sleep properly for about two days and didn't eat for longer. i don't know why this has affected me so much, like, i have never got like this before, but seriously, so much NO.
A horror movie that's actually unnerving. Who'd a thunk it?
i saw a clip, and read a bit about it. :(
Your mind is way better at this stuff.
it's bound to be a cicle made of humans.
Having said that, why is the first even getting made at all?
The Total Film and Variety review summaries on Wikipedia seem to point to how 1-dimensional and predictable the whole thing inevitably is.
There's darker, more sinister stuff to be had elsewhere in far less superficially squeamish films.
This is so absurd, it's just doomed to be a(n uneasy) laugh-fest (whether intentional or not). So the only thing to do is to play it to the max on the laughs front.
Might as well watch Peter Jackson's Bad Taste, all told.
Those who end up seeing it should come back and give us a proper review.
and couldn't sleep for a while. it's still giving me the creeps right now.
i've never heard a concept quite this arowsing.
Looking forward to seeing how terrible it is
this is the kind of shit they should make 3-D
So this could be interesting.
And refused to acknowledge that someone was ACTUALLY making it.
Just... wrong... i think I'm turning into my Mum? Now THAT'S a horror concept, right there.
stayed up til 3am, trying not to think about it. I think the line 'oh shit, I need to shit!' screamed in Japanese will haunt me forever...
The Human Centipede directed by Tom Six was released on Nov 13, 2009. I was there in India at that time. The film went on to do well at the box-office reportedly bringing in 2.1 crores rupees per territory. In many ways The Human Centipede gave Ashley C. Williams a second shot at super stardom. Before The Human Centipede there was the manga by Junji Ito, but it looks like they're not giving him a mention. Before Human Centipede Tom Six had done a number of films that failed miserably at the box office and cast a shadow over his career but Human Centipede changed all that.
Human Centipede is Tom Six's first film in which he has done horror (mildly, anyway). He is also the first among his contemporaries to present a story from the amazing horror mangas of Junji Ito outside Japan (uncredited). The plot is quiet simple. Two female hitchhikers separated at birth reunite after a chain of hilarious events.
Dieter Laser has shown considerable flair for comedy in this film. The credit must also go to the director. Incidentally Mr. Tom Six has been after Dieter Laser to do a film for him. The two later collaborated on another super hit The Human Centipede II (Director's Cut).
The music for The Human Centipede is by Holeg Spies. The style and the numbers definitely suit Laser's personality. The two heroines are simply gorgeous to look at but Ashlynn Yennie could use a few acting lessons.
The Human Centipede is fun film to watch though the plot is very similar to a Jackie Chan movie Twin Brothers which was loosely adopted from the telgu hit Hello Brother starring Nagarjuna. This movie will be most enjoyable to Junji Ito Fan.
but this fact makes this just that bit more awful:
"Throughout the production process Tom Six stated that his intention to create a film that was 100% medically accurate, consulting a surgeon during the creation and filming process. Six claimed that while initially reluctant to take part in the film because of professional reputation, after reading the script, the surgeon consulted took a very strong interest in the procedure, devising a method that he believed would work in real life. Six claims that by using an IV drip to supplement the diet of the middle and back parts, the centipede would be able to survive for years."
Yeah, the surgeon just happened to come up with the way to actually make a human centipede after reading the script. It totally *wasn't* a plan he developed over years.
ha ha *poops*

I'm not entirely convinced its real, it looks like one of the Grindhouse fakes.
a film that doesn't exist.
Like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7W_sMFoyMs
he became dangerously obssessed when i showed him the trailer, and then he watched it and commentated on the action of fb chat. he's a bit wrong anyway, but he didn't seem too fussed. said it was boring.
Was a bit of a pain in the arse.
If you want something doing...
Watched it last night. IMO it's one of those films that's so preposterous (and completely upfront with the title) that it can only really work on the level of comedy.
Hardly any real gore, and a million miles away from what I imagine alleged torture porn stuff to be like. (like Saw? - haven't seen it).
I reckon it works OK as a totally lightweight thriller/comedy.
Scores like 4.7 on IMDb, 50% (critics) & 27% (audience) on RT, 33 (critics) & 4.2 (audience) seem to miss the point.
It has inspired me to get around to watching Snakes On A Plane sometime soon. Might catch HCII, too, if it comes onto my radar.
it's completely ridiculous and quite tame
the original Saw is pretty good tbh - tense little movie with a stupid twist. the few sequels I've seen are the Crystal Maze with death as the punishment for failing
Snakes on a Plane is built on a single line and doesn't hold up beyond that. mildly entertaining I guess.
