The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

My Rating: 5/10

Well...what a very strange film. I gave this a fresh rating because I think it doesn't deserve to be rotten and isn't actually ALL bad.

The Human Centipede is pretty much as the title suggests. A great German surgeon captures two lost American girls and a Japanese man holding them captive in his cellar. He then proceeds to create the first human centipede, sewing them together mouth to bum and removing their knee ligaments meaning they are unable to stand up.

As weird as it sounds, this was actually quite entertaining and in parts pretty gruesome to watch purely because the concept is such a sick idea and had me clentching my bum and covering my mouth for the most part because unlike the characters in the film....I could. There are a lot of sick moments in the film that purely are designed to incur your gag reflex. For example, because they are sewn together the two at the back are forced to feed off the excrements of the person in front. So as you can imagine, seeing that happen is pretty disgusting.

Obviously, this film has plenty of flaws and will never win any awards or ever be highly critically acclaimed however with a concept like this it's not really going to. If anything, a group of mates had this sick idea and decided to make it for their own entertainment. It follows the classic horror/gore film conventions with the characters stupidity and the seemingly invincible villain but it wouldn't be much a film if it didn't.

If you're a fan of horror/gore then I would definitely reccomend this as it is an intriguing and entertaining watch and you would certainely never have seen anything like it before.
