It was only a matter of time before we witnessed Eric Roberts eat poop on-screen. The star who proved he’ll do anything with A Talking Cat!?! has joined the growing cast of The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence). He’ll join returning stars Dieter Laser, Laurence R. Harvey, and writer/director Tom Six in the film that’s rumored to include a centipede made up of 500 people attached bum-bum to mouth. That thing must be a nightmare to keep fed.

Of course, The Human Centipede films may not be for every Eric Roberts fan so unlike Hal’s mom, you might wish to get your fix elsewhere. According to his IMDb page, you have 70(!?!) other direct-to-DVD chances to see Eric Roberts in action in 2013 alone. Why is Eric Roberts keeping so busy? Because marijuana is a hell of a drug.

In honor of Mother’s Day – we decided to fly in Hal’s Mom for a touching family reunion! But nothing’s free in this world. We had only one stipulation. If Mrs. Rudnick wants to see her little man, she’ll have to watch and review the most inappropriate Mother’s Day movie we could think of… The Human Centipede.

David O. Russell‘s Spanking The Monkey was a close second choice.

Get ready for the most in-depth look at the creepy sh*t that’s going on in the trailer Tom Six‘s The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence). This time around the maniac behind the macabre surgery is a deranged guy obsessed with the original film who decides to make his own centipede…out of humans. Sick, right?

There are a few differences this time around. For instance, the antagonist isn’t a surgeon. He’s just a super-fan who resorts to using plastic tubing, rusty tools, and a staple gun. Also, there are a lot more mouths to feed now. But perhaps the biggest change is the decision to film in black and white. It creates a much more intimate feel to intensify the general feeling of claustrophobia. Seems like they’re saving 3D for the next sequel.

By Fidel Martinez

It’s really hard to talk about Human Centipede (First Sequence) in an intelligent manner, which isn’t that surprising since most of the controversy surrounding its predecessor focused on audiences’ visceral reaction to the concept of ass-to-mouth horror. The sequel Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) is no different (the tagline is “The Deuce Is Loose!” speaks for itself) but I’ll try.

Dutch director Tom Six‘s follow-up to his 2010 meme of a film (yes, in South Park spoofs you, you’re a meme) opened up the 2011 edition on Fantastic Fest, the largest genre film festival in North America, and I was there to witness it. The first thing that greeted me when I got to my seat was a barf bag filled with a mint and a staple remover. The former was there for more than obvious reason, whereas the stapler remover was there alluding to what I was about to watch.

Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) opens quite literally where the last one left off: the final scene from the first movie and its closing credits. The camera then zooms out to reveal Martin (Laurence Harvey), a short, mentally challenged, grotesque-looking garage attendant. Soon after, we learn that our protagonist–much like the film’s director– is obsessed with the Human Centipede (First Sequence), so much so that his plan is to recreate the fictional Dr. Heiter’s monstrous creation. There’s a catch, though. Martin won’t be happy with three people being stitched together ass-to-mouth. He wants to turn it up to eleven. Well, twelve, to be more precise. A dozen victims instead of the pedestrian three.

And so the film’s very simplistic plot begins to unravel. Martin uses his place of work to pick off his victims, clubbing all but two of them at the parking garage and dragging them to an abandoned warehouse. The two other are the skinhead neighbor who lives above his flat and Ashlynn Yennie– an actress in the first one who plays herself in this one (we told you that Tom Six is obsessed with his own work).

Once he has his twelve parts for his centipede, Martin rolls up his sleeves (by which we mean “takes off his pants and puts on a surgical coat”) and begins to work. What follows next is a bombardment of repulsion and the grotesque. There’s more blood splattered, more open wound shown, and more consumption of fecal matter than the first one. And yet, the film failed to make me feel sick. Going in, I had psychologically prepared myself to see the worst. It turns out my idea of “the worst” is more disgusting (or original) than what Tom Six imagined. Yes, I was partially grossed out, but more than anything I was bored. It was as if a previously hilarious joke stopped being sudden all of a sudden. It’s as if the meme had reached a point of over-saturation and exhaustion.

If I wanted to give the film more credit than it deserves, I’d call it a schlockier, gorier, and less entertaining version of Eraserhead. Tom Six opted to shoot his sequel in black and white instead of color to create a contrast between his two films (sterile in the first one vs. disgust and dirtiness in this one). Whether intentionally or not, David Lynch‘s experimental came to mind.

If I wanted to be honest about HC2, I’d call it a boring film that’s done in by its own hype and the director’s shortcomings as a filmmaker.

Here’s our first official, non-Australian look at The Human Centipede 2 from director Tom Six. Looks like we’ve got a new creep running around with a penchant for sewing and bum-bums. You might be asking yourself,  “How can two psychopaths have the same vision of a multi-legged butt monster?” Well, the answer is here. The new psycho, Dr. Butt-Monster, is actually an everyday crazy guy who saw the first film and decided to try it out in real life. Makes sense to me.

Also, kudos on casting another eery-looking actor who will ruin my sleep patterns. I’m pretty sure that’s the kid from The Sandlot. Child actors, man. They can’t be trusted.

Though they still aren’t showing us any footage of Tom Six’s new butt-to-mouth monster, a new teaser for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has been stitched together. The teaser focuses on viewers recoiling in horror while watching a private screening of the sequel. That footage is juxtaposed with the early reviews condemning the grotesque film imagery, as well as using the fact that it is banned in Britain as a selling point.

In all fairness, these viewers don’t seem genuinely scared or upset and could be watching a flicker for all we know. Or The Zookeeper. But, for their sake, I’m hoping it’s the flicker.

'Kidnapped' Might Be The Most Disturbing Film You See This Decade

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has banned The Human Centipede II: (Full Sequence), director Tom Six‘s follow-up to the instant cult classic about a man who stitches people together ass-to-mouth. Although the first one slid by with an 18 rating (Adults Only), this one is apparently unfit for loyal subjects of any age. BBFC took umbrage to the idea that the Centipede scientist would get a sexual kick out of his creation, a central element to the sequel. Maybe he should have romanced the Human Centipede a bit, to soften the impact on audiences? Took the Human Centipede out to dinner? Dancing? A marriage proposal?

IFC is releasing the movie in the US later this year. Spoilers After The Picture… (TheWrap)

Here’s exactly what the BBFC said about the film and their decision:

“The principal focus of ‘The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)’ is the sexual arousal of the central character at both the idea and the spectacle of the total degradation, humiliation, mutilation, torture, and murder of his naked victims,” the BBFC wrote.

“Examples of this include a scene early in the film in which he masturbates whilst he watches a DVD of the original ‘Human Centipede’ film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis, and a sequence later in the film in which he becomes aroused at the sight of the members of the ‘centipede’ being forced to defecate into one another’s mouths, culminating in sight of the man wrapping barbed wire around his penis and raping the woman at the rear of the ‘centipede.’

“There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalised, degraded and mutilated for the amusement and arousal of the central character, as well as for the pleasure of the audience. There is a strong focus throughout on the link between sexual arousal and sexual violence and a clear association between pain, perversity and sexual pleasure.”
