Director: Tom Six

'Did I really just watch that?', is the reaction felt after watching the first sequence of The Human Centipede. A twisted concept exists in the mind of director Tom Six, but it's one that doesn't take shape due to a number of factors. First off, the acting is undeniably questionable, chiefly the trio that make up the 'human centipede' and the doctor whose mental state engulfs rational thinking. Grief is not felt for the blithering three, as the girls' (Ashley C. Williams and Ashlynn Yennie) common sense doesn't kick in until miles after it's too late. They're strapped to hospital gurneys, ready for their procedure, just as a young Japanese man is. The questions that will be filling your mind do come (no spoilers here) as Dr. Heiter (Dieter Laser) runs through the conventional duties an owner would do with his pet. Loopholes are aplenty, the most obvious being the centipede's attachments and whether it's possible. Others exists, but that's for you to find and decide for yourselves. The Human Centipede has quickly become a cult film, but for the wrong reasons.
