The Human Centipede Review
Written by: sickf**k
I've finally got a copy of The Human Centipede from Netflix and I ask myself Why the hell didn't I buy this film? 2010 hasn't exactly been great for horror movies. We got a couple remakes some good others horrible and we got some films that stand out. Not many though. The Human Centipede is a film I've been following since I heard about it and I've been waiting for the day when I get to see it.
The plot is simple and easy to follow as two hot ass American's traveling Europe alone decide to take up an offer from a waiter to come to a party. You know these women have no sense of direction so what happens they get lost in the middle of the woods. To make matters worse they have a flat tire now! Now their running through the woods looking for somebody. Sorry to say this but you should have stayed at the car. So they stumble upon the Dr. Frankenstein of 21st Century, who has this genius idea to join three humans Ass to Mouth. No not the sex move, PERVERTS! BUT LITERALLY JOIN THEM ASS TO MOUTH. Why? I don't know but I like it.
I love these sick, disturbing films that really are just made to sicken people. This is truly a film that if you don't get grossed out at some point in this film then get your brains checked. I would disagree that this film is nowhere close to the effect of French films like Inside and Frontiers but I will give it the most disturbing film of the year 2010. Not only does this film sicken you it also grabs you by the core and slowly turns you into the centipede.
You have these two beautiful women on screen babbling for a good 10 minutes about God knows what and what really grabs you is their acting. At some points, you almost feel like this is happening to them for real. I had to check the Bonus features just to make sure this wasn't some sick game. Their acting was amazing for an indie flick, plus the jaw dropping effects that take place. I do believe my jaw was slightly open the entire movie after the first 15 or 20 minutes.
This is not your typical date night horror movie nor is it the film you want to be watching with your parents or young children. This is a balls deep, in your face, horror film that really deserves more attention from die hard fans. If you liked Inside, Frontiers, and Martyrs then you will like The Human Centipede. It's worth at least a watch to everybody but this is one DVD that is entering my collection this weekend. I give it 8 1/2 Stars bump it up to nine for the jaw dropping effect it had on me.
