DVD Pick of the Week: The Human Centipede

Plotline: In Germany, two American women and a Japanese man fall victim to a demented surgeon who plans to recreate a horrific operation with humans that he performed on his three beloved dogs: reverse-engineering Siamese triplets by attaching their digestive systems.

Scariness Factor: It’s not too scary, at 1st...

Gross-Out Factor: It’s pretty high on a 1 to 5 scale the gross out factor is a 5

Complaints: The two American girls and the fucking police! 1st of all how in the hell don’t you know how to change a fucking tire and for all of you who are thinking about traveling abroad stay in the fucking city if you don’t know where the hell you are. I don’t know what kinda cops leave a house to come back with a warrant without any kind of back up or radio communication. Do you? Yeah, didn’t think so.

High Points: Once you get past the gross out factor you really start to feel for these people who have found themselves in the most unimaginable horrendous situation and are fighting to survive.

Personal Commentary: Writer & Director Tom Six got it right with the ending because as the ending credits roll the only thing you’ll be left with is hope and despair which are fucked up feelings to have both at the same time and it’s the only time that The Human Centipede is truly frightening.

Stars: 4 Stars out of 5

Where I rented it: Blockbuster
