A demented surgeon will wield any instrument to perform the unspeakable. No conscience, no mercy and no hope!

Two pretty American girls on a road trip across Europe end up alone in the woods at night when their car breaks down in rural Germany. As they search for help they find an isolated house. Offering to call them a taxi, the house's owner Dr. Heiter, a retired surgeon, invites the girls inside with the promise of a drink and dry place to wait until help arrives. However they realise that there is something not quite right about the formidable Dr. Heiter...

As their demented host explains his twisted vision, the two girls discover that they are soon to become a lot closer to each other than they ever wanted to be. Heiter's plan is to connect the two girls to each other with a third person, a hapless Japanese tourist, via their gastric systems in a daring bid to be the first person to create a Siamese triplet -bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy 'the human centipede'.

Truly one-of-a-kind, Tom Six's twisted biological horror film The Human Centipede confidently goes where few films have dared to go. The sick vision of a demented surgeon, a role portrayed so brilliantly by Dieter Laser it is sure to join Freddy, Jason, and Leatherface in the horror pantheon, is a 100% medically accurate nightmare.

I have literally just finished watching this and have to say I do feel a little bit sick! However, it was not quite was I was expecting based on the trailer. For a start, the production values and cinematic style are of a much higher standard than you might be led to believe. Secondly, the script is economical but has splashes of (extremely) black humour that stop the film from just becoming a straightforward B-movie.
The director clearly knows his classic horror and plays with the conventions, abeit in a detached manner that recalls early David Cronenberg movies; Cronenberg is also echoed in the way taboos are stretched and broken throughout the film in order to make the viewer squirm without resorting to over-the-top gore in the way that, for instance, the Hostel and Saw movies do.
It's not a film I will need to see many times but that isn't a criticism. All in all, it has been quite some time since I saw a horror film this strange and affecting. Highly recommended but only if you have a strong stomach and love of horror films that aren't produced by Michael Bay!

 The best film I've seen for a long long time

I too have been watching horror films for nearly 30 years, and I feel qualified to state that this is one of the best horror films in recent memory. Yes it's a slow-moving film, but that's not always a bad thing. Some films throw so much rubbish at you in the hope that something might stick, but this one takes its time so you can fully digest the (admittedly ridiculous but still terrible) situation that these people have found themselves in. As a horror veteran, these days it's not often that something causes me to reel back in disgust at what's happening on screen, but this film managed it several times. It should also be mentioned that the doctor is one of the best villains I've ever seen.

It's an easy 5/5 from me. I'm so glad I watched this film, and the people who I've since lent my copy to have all agreed that if you're a horror fan this is a movie that needs to be experienced at least once.

This has to be the most original and most sick film of the year for horror fans!! It truly must be seen to be believed, a perverse and twisted story about a mad German scientist who performs secret experiments in his home, one rainy night some hot American girls get lost and find their way to his house to spend the night in the most shocking way ever!! The film dosnt run on gore but there are lots of cringe worthy moments, it all builds up to the climax which is gross beyond belief and leaves images in your head that wont come out, certainly a film that will get talked about!! If you love a good original film then dont miss out on this!
