Product Description

Two pretty American girls on a road trip across Europe end up alone in the woods at night when their car breaks down in rural Germany. As they search for help they find an isolated house. Offering to call them a taxi, the house's owner Dr. Heiter, a retired surgeon, invites the girls inside with the promise of a drink and dry place to wait until help arrives. However they realise that there is something not quite right about the formidable Dr. Heiter... As their demented host explains his twisted vision, the two girls discover that they are soon to become a lot closer to each other than they ever wanted to be. Heiter s plan is to connect the two girls to each other with a third person, a hapless Japanese tourist, via their gastric systems in a daring bid to be the first person to create a Siamese triplet -bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE! Inspired by a conversation over what punishment would be appropriate for convicted paedophiles, Tom Six s bizarre biological horror film has the distinction of being 100% MEDICALLY ACCURATE! Extras include - The Making of..., 2 x Interviews with Tom Six, Casting, Foley Session, Deleted Scene, Original Theatrical Trailer, full length audio commentary, Q&A with Tom Six and Dieter Laser at the UK première

3.0 out of 5 stars What it says, really 13 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So, some crazy German fella who used to operate on Siamese twins now has a thing for putting dogs and people together mouth-to-butt and making them like a centipede (As you do).

When I first heard about this, I thought 'How do they drag this out for an hour and a half?'
Well, the director (Tom Six) does an alright job to be fair.
There's the usual dumb-american-girls-get-lost-and-knock-on-random-crazy-dude's-door along with the chances of escape.

I watched this a second time tonight, with my girlfriend and her Mum.
Not a family film, this one.

The good though:

- Crazy German guy is cast well. Scary, creepy and everything a horror lead needs.
- A fair bit of action to keep the pace going
- Pretty epic (though grim) ending
- Could provide a decent night with friends. You wouldn't want to be watching this type of film by yourself, would you!

The bad of this film:

- Dialogue and acting between the girls at the start of the film is pretty tragic
- Japanese guy is the only one of the three victims who can talk. He's pretty bloody annoying.
- Makes you wonder why you're watching such a soul-destroying film
- Because the girls have their mouths attached to bums, they can't talk, so even the bad dialogue is missed
- The ending, though grande, is left sort of open. Does the girl just stay in that position until death? If so, poor thing.

That's pretty much all I can say.
Not a great film, but watchable.
Like many have pointed out, it's not in good taste. It makes you wonder what the director gets up to in his spare time, and you also wonder about his mental health.
It's basically torture porn and I'm sure many would find it vulgar and offensive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Human Centipede 22 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not a film for the squeamish, those of a sensitive condition, or anyone who is eating at the time! However, if you are sick of Hollywood horror with all the knowing, post cultural irony and want genuine, Cronenberg style gross out body horror, this is one for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars DISTURBED AND LET DOWN 8 Mar 2011
By 747Rick
I, if you have read any of my other reviews, will know that I love my Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy films and have a large collecion. I'm also a fan of Exploitation and B-Movies.

I had heard & read quite a bit about this film and was interested to see the final result. I'm a bit perplexed. I'm disturbed because there was no real reason or backstory as to why The Doctor does what he does, I wanted a real story behind it. On the other hand the film was certainly not as stomach churning as I was expecting.

Gore isn't everything but I was expecting a more psychological terror. It didn't happen and as a result just felt like the filmakers were just trying to take the 'we are going to gross you out' one notch up from other films. It must take a very weird mind to come up with this without having a reason.

The acting wasn't brilliant, and the film is quite slow in places. Normally I like that approach but, and at the risk of saying it again, because there is no reason for why this is happening it just didn't seem to go anywhere.

Perhaps I've become a little less shockable over the years but had this been released in the 80's it would have immediately been refused a release. Like most of the films that were banned though it doesn't really stand up to all the hype and I only say that in respect that times must have changed because I watched it at 10pm on TV.

If you think this review sounds a little confused, you're right. Yes it's gross but not in the way I was expecting. I'm certainly not sure where the film makers are going to go with the second part other than I've read that there will be more than 3 people attached together. It just sounds like they are going to try and take it further.

This could have been so much 'more' with a better story/ script or had it possibly been taken in a different direction i.e. with a some black humour injected. In the end it just feels like a wasted opportunity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Captivating but stomach churning 25 July 2011
By Chelle
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is something that you watch, captivated that somebody thought of it, but sick the whole way through. It turns your stomach and is disgusting but you carry on watching just because you are seeing something so unreal and far fetched. A must see but don't eat before. You'll never trust a german doctor again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very much a let down 25 April 2013
I heard about this film through Internet hype and decided to check it out. I have to say...what a huge disappointment.indie films notoriously don't harbour a huge budget for their films, however this feature wasn't requiring of such and was a very tacky horror cliche with very little shock value.

Now I personally am sick of all the typical Hollywood horror bore fest of recent years, barring a few exceptions, that have the same drawn out plot with no character development, and while this films only developed character is the evil doctor, the plot itself is strangely unique but doesn't really go out of its way to be hugely different. The two main girls annoyed the hell out of me and were just fodder for the mad doctors centipede.

The actual scene where the centipede is revealed isn't all that shocking to be honest, it looks clever but at no point was I sat there open mouthed at what I was watching. The acting, apart from the doctor, is hideous, awful acting that would even look wooden in a soap opera.

Special effects are good to a degree and again the doctor is very creepy looking and fascinating at the same time.

Having now seen both human centipede films I would suggest buying the 2nd film as the characters are better developed (however not by a great stretch) and the villain in my opinion is even better, add to that more gore and shock value and I would say H.C 2 far outranks this poor effort. 5/10
