114) The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)

114) The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009) Dir: Tom Six Date Released: April 2010 Date Seen: March 25, 2010 Rating: 4/5

Thoroughly unnerving and an exploitation gem. See my rave review for Slant Magazine.



  2. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. The actual viewing experience was as tough as it gets, but not because of over-the-top gore so much as implied horrendousness. The coprophilic aspect bordered on too much, but Six knew how to dial things back enough to keep it watchable.

  3. I liked the middle and end sections here reasonably enough but the beginning (typical horror fodder) seemed to weigh things down for me. Also, I see little stylistic vitality that was there in a film like "Splice."
