It seems to be a plot to eradicate analingus!

I thought that the first film was particularly bad in some horrid ways: amateur acting aside from Dieter Lazer, amateur filmmaking and storytelling, misogynistic in the worst ways, and a stomach-churning presence to boot. That said, getting drunk with friends while watching this movie was a blast, and I applaud director Six for at least leaving some things to the imagination and I really enjoy that this film is now the "cult" sensation he set out for. It deserves at least that, for attempting to do something different and revolting but also sensational. People talk about it for a reason, and that alone is a sign of its worth.

I only saw a snatch of the first one on cable (the "Forgive me" scene - you'll know what I mean if you've seen it) and that was QUITE enough.

I saw THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 at the weekend and it is not only genuinely revolting, but better than we had any right to expect. This was the British cut version and in all truth the cuts really don't harm the film. My review:

I agree with all the above and but feel that everything you mentioned was very intentional.

For starters, the movie was made on the cheap and by a first timer so I wasn't expecting too much BUT with that said, I loved how annoying/stupid the girls were so that I kind of was glad they were mute for the rest of the film but once the surgery is done, I did start to feel a bit bad for them so that was a nice twist.

Dieter Lazer clearly had fun and was indeed a high light ["I don't like...people."]

My biggest beef with this film is how TAME it is. There is blood but it isn't to an insane or TRULY gory degree and I've honestly seen more blood in action films with wicked gunshot wounds or THE FLY.

People make it out to be an insanely disgusting film but don't ever speak on how it is them as a viewer that was disturbed rather then the images shown and to the film's credit, most of it plays on what we don't see.

The sole fact that people can't seem to finish the film or make it out to be a scarring film is really funny considering this film can't hold a candle to CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, A SERBIAN FILM, or FRONTIER[S].

Funny, I've seen a cheeky gay porn recreate the ass to mouth thing which was a hoot along with the Human CentiPad episode of SOUTH PARK.

I saw the last two SAW movies and am utterly shocked that people find those films GORY considering the blood is FUCKING PINK which totally ruins the work much like how those FINAL DESTINATION films became more dependent on CGI which takes away from the kills.

That's the only way to watch it. Drunk with friends. Hell, our comments were better than this Shitstrousity.

I liked the back part, not so much the front.

I'm still shocked how eating ass or ass to mouth is this TABOO subject or even better, considered gay when a man and a woman do it [but some people think anal sex between couples is gay so go figure].

I remember how "edgy" people thought the pussy talk in TRUE ROMANCE was or how raunchy it was for CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM to have an episode where Larry is constantly clearing his throat due to a pubic from cunnilingus.

I wonder where a third film could go? Maybe a team up with Gaspar NoƩ!

As for a true disturbing film, check out CHAOS!

After reading a couple of synposis (synopses?), and your review, I think I saw the UK cut too...though you mention one scene that the BBFC cut which, unfortunately, was indeed in the version I saw....so maybe I saw some other version...I don't know....but in any case, your review is absolutely spot on. Hehe..."hint: it's brown"...indeed!

Ultimately, I have to say that this is one film I wish I could "Unsee"....though having said that I dare say I will end up watching it again soon....I just wouldn't know why!

Well, yes, I find it extremely original, and think the cast displays appropriate emotions of fear and anger, very nicely. Not sure I could possibly ever sit through it again, and a sequel holds zero interest, but I don't hate it.

Hmmm, this comment from the guy who thinks Saving Private Ryan was a terrible movie, along with most everything else Spielberg did . . . . hmmmm.

"Originality" and "cast emotions" ain't everything, you know.

SAVING PRIVATE RYAN is a bad movie and like many, I feel the bookends are terrible and really un-needed but even if you forgive all that, the whole thing is a mess.

Yes, the war scenes are intense and good and truth be told, the only good thing the film has going for itself.

As for the film, its all STOCK and CLICHED characters; the Stoic leader, his older second in command, the wise cracking Jew, the tough guy from Brooklyn, the bible quoting sniper...

The only WONDERFUL and AMAZING person in the film is Upham and he is universally hated for some reason because while all the "warriors" in the film never seem to have any fear and act like super soldiers, Upham actually displays fear and rather then showing it as a reality, the film makes him out to be coward and even regulate him to ammo bitch but no one ever takes the time to show him how to shoot or even to square him away.

The only GREAT thing about this movie is that it spawned the better BAND OF BROTHERS.

The Human Centipede is garbage, plain and simple. Completely awful from start to finish. There's nothing at all that redeems the movie in any way. Like A Serbian Film, just attempts to shock and repulse and then they defend themselves by claiming to be artists. Reviewers at places like AintitCool just drool all over themselves praising crap like this so they can appear to have edgy tastes.

You can feel however you like about them film THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE but you cannot completely right it off as garbage.

It is a low budget film from a first film filmmaker so I personally can give some slack to the filmmakers for using a unique "hook" to get people's attention and unlike MANY who release horror films, this one managed to tap into something very real and spawn a cult following and mind you...IT ISN'T EVEN THAT GROSS and some of more disturbing things play off screen or we aren't really seeing but imagine are going on under the bandages.

THE FLY and A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE had more brutal bloodshed.

Unlike the SAW films or other torture porn films, this film at least has characters for the entire duration and isn't just people killed every 10 minutes like the FINAL DESTINATION where it really is all about the kills.

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE or A SERBIAN FILM are just films that push the boundaries much like IRREVERSIBLE or PIRANHA 3D.

It is no less art then the films of The Coen Brothers or Terrence Malik in that it plays to a certain crowd [art house vs. horror].

To each his own and yes, you can think the films are garbage and not art but know that you are wrong because it is ART much like a Jackson Pollack is more then just paint dripped on a canvas.

Just saw HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2.

Yup, definitely gross, much like the first film (at times even moreso).

I had to put my hand in front of the screen in some of the most gory sequences. While this isn't exactly my favourite kind of film, I'm extremely fascinated by films that challenge our senses, that goes straight to the viscera, that exploits our fear of the "Other" (i.e. the human disposal system; everything that is inside us, but not really part of us).

The latter; I only know centipede from the south park episode and the constant pop culture references it has sprouted; I think I'll keep it at that. Not a fan of the splatter porn/shock subgenre of horror.
