This is one of my all time fave flicks (I even wrote a song about it) So for that reason alone it will always hold a special place in my black little heart.
I used to watch a lot of horror movies as a kid (some would say too much) so much so that I overdosed on gore flicks and didn't really watch or have the interest in any of them to watch for almost 10 years until I heard about this little gem. I have to say it was the controversy that piqued my interest in it really, I mean what could be so bad about this movie that it has everyone in internet land vomiting into their own mouths ?
It follows the plight of two rather attractive females and some Japenese guy who unwittingly fall into the trap of a sadistic doctor who sedates them and subjects them to his perverted medical experiments.
The fun only starts here, the three are subjected to humiliation degradation on and torture beyond the comprehension of most humans when they are placed into a human centipede joined together from mouth to anus, the three of them connected by the same digestive tract.
This is not for the faint hearted. There are some films that can't be unseen once you've watched them and this is probably the leading light in such films. As a movie it is captivating, well thought out and compelling, you actually feel for the victims and the cold bloodiness of Dr. Heiter (the Surgeon played by Deiter Laser) is delivered disturbingly well. I don't think many people could say its a bad film, its just too much for many people to take.
Its a tough one to talk about without ruining the film but i'll include the trailer here so you can judge for yourself if its something you want to see.
