THE HUMAN CEPTIPEDE (FULL SEQUENCE) TRAILER SEEMS...MEH.


Unless you've been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you've heard SOMETHING about The Human CentipedeThe Human Centipede was a "shocking" look at what happens when a doctor obsessed with the idea of centipede people decides to connect three unsuspecting people through their gastric tracts.  You know...ass to mouth.  Promising to be one of the grossest and shocking films of the decade, we were given a film with minor gross outs, a strong leading character, and nothing more than a couple of decent scenes.  Sorry, but I was a little disappointed by the first film.  I was promised horror so gross I would vomit, and I didn't.  I didn't even cringe.  The most graphic scenes of the entire movie were leaked months in advance and it left absolutely nothing else redeeming for the film.  Hell, I've seen more graphic episodes of Law & Order: SVU. I mean, if Matt Stone and Trey Parker can parody your film and make it more entertaining...there's a problem. I digress...


Tom Six, apparently a little butt hurt from critics like myself, decided to step up his game and make a sequel.  Instead of having three people connected...he's connecting twelve.  While this sounds "oh-so disgusting", I think this idea is going to have the same effect as watching a twelve person porno.  It's a really good idea on paper, but when you try to execute it, it's nothing more than a bunch of squirming bodies and obnoxious screaming.  Nothing satisfying will come out of this.  At all.  Instead of continuing with the storyline from the original (whatever story surgically attaching people ass to mouth possesses) we are given a brand new villain.  Resembling something like "gluttony" from Se7en, Martin is a young man utterly obsessed with the film of The Human Centipede.  A self-aware sequel? Oh joy.  He's so obsessed, he's decided to make a centipede of his own.  Hm. Well. That's one way to continue the concept. 

All I'm saying is that I think this is going to be pretty pointless. Maybe they'll change my mind and I'll puke or something. I'm just not going to hold my breath.  Watch the trailer for yourself, make your own opinion.

I'm one of the few people ( in addition to you of course) who called out how dull and boring the first movie was, and this looks even worse. It looks like the Hatchet 2 of body horror.

ugh, the first movie wasn't anything "shocking" really, you get all of what the movie is from it's description. This is just going to be the same thing with more characters you'll never care about since they'll never get any character-development since they'll have their mouths sewed to buttholes the whole movie. I hope this movie fails hard so it won't get more sequels. I can't see it being like Saw since there's only so many times you can watch people get the human centipede treatment.

I have to admit, despite the cheesiness with the movies I was rather disturbed with the actor that plays Martin. He's so creepy- THOSE FUCKING EYES! Like a glass doll.

The only thing that I hesitate about the second film is the barbwire rape and the sandpaper masturbation, neither of which I care to see. Because of that I think I'll reserve a viewing until I've read a few reviews first.

I was absolutely un-impressed with the first film as well. It really did nothing for me and I kept checking the clock to see how much time was left - to me, that's indicative of the quality of the plot. Ugh...BORING!

And so I say why...WHY do they feel the need to make another one?
Pretty pointless and certainly nothing I'll rush to see or yearn for on DVD...

It's really sad that a lot of filmmakers have decided that character development is no longer important in horror films.

Yeah, super not impressed with the trailer. Also, what kind of loser is actually "obsessed" with The Human Centipede. I can understand loving the doctor, but the film sucked. Take away that doctor, you gots nothing.

After watching A Serbian Film I found The Human Centipede to be quite a merry watch.
