Ass 2 Mouth


I actually think "Ass 2 Mouth" would've made a pretty classy tagline for this sequel, but I digress.

The premise behind Tom Six's Human Centipede series, shallow as it may be, is obviously quite seductive to me. Having been sucked into the vortex of hype surrounding the first film, only to be left disappointed and wondering what all the fuss was about, I've still got enough interest in this revolting spectacle to subject myself to it's sequel. Although the first film didn't deliver on it's promise, I didn't completely dislike it. It was an attractive film, pretty easy on the eyes really, and the central performance from Dieter Laser as the mad Dr. Heiter was amusing and entertaining enough.

Both films have raised the ire of many horror fans who feel that Six is just an egomaniac having a laugh at our expense, and continuing to guffaw all the way to the bank. I have no doubt that he's doing just that, but personally I don't always need to be pandered to and treated like a valued customer. I don't mind being fucked with a bit, and after all, horror filmmakers have been doing it for decades. It's called exploitation cinema for a reason.


At least Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) looks like it truly delivers on the disgusting goods.

  1. Hmmm....
    saw the first one just a few weeks back... didn't impress me... and the poormans Udo Kier didn't do much for me either...

    Although I do have some kinda hopes for the sequel, despite allready having a mental image of it being the same shit in a different packing.

    :D

  2. I'm dubious about it too, but still feel compelled to see it. Interested to see just how far it goes. Also the b&w photography looks great in the stills i've seen.

  5. Yeah, Pontypool was great, a really original take on zombies. Sort of Romero meets William S Burroughs.
