Marina Antunes [Celluloid 04.09.15] horror



Let's get real for a minute. The Human Centipede isn't a good movie. It's a really twisted idea that made for a mediocre horror movie with a couple of unforgettable scenes. I've never wished I could un-see something I voluntarily watched but I wish I had heeded the warnings and skipped the movie all together. Apparently there is a line that I can't cross and writer/director Tom Six crossed it.


I learned my lesson and skipped the second movie all together but it seems someone is watching this stuff because now Six has made a third and unbelievably, instead of getting better, it looks like these movies are getting worse. And I don't just mean the subject matter.


All you really need to know is that this time around, there's a maximum security jail and the crazy surgeon is at it again. My only wish about all of this is that Dieter Laser would appear in better horror movies. He just looks creepy as all hell.


The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) will be available on VOD and limited theatrical release on May 22.




Recommended Release: A Serbian Film

HC is a disturbing trend I'm finding in horror. Movies that concentrate on gore, body horror, and shock. Nothing is done about plot, story, and a subjects we care about. Which is sad there is plenty of horror books out there that would make great movies.

Methinks that this was always intended as an over the top parody of said trend.

It's interesting that a post about HC being an uncrossable line would recommend A Serbian Film at the end. While ASF was a great piece of cinema, it's also something I'll never watch again. What a haunting film! While HC is a silly and over-the-top gross-out fantasy, ASF was realistic enough to be truly terrifying.
