aka Hey Troma, top this!

No interest in this one (bit hypocritical of me, I s'pose, since I'm following the Saw franchise right over the cliff), but from what I understand it's making waves and Dieter is garnering a lot of praise for his performance.  Whatever your feelings about this flick, here's hoping it serves as a springboard to bigger and better things for yet another Lexx alum.

I've just seen the trailer and nearly threw up. He sure is perfect for that role.

I used to really love horror films but was never one for really gory ones, but saying that I did sit through Hell Raiser.

As soon as I saw the medical diagram I started diverting my interest. Dieter is a modern day Karloff.

A co-worker showed me the trailer at work and I shouted, "MANTRID!!!!!" It looks really creepy. I'm a horror movie freak, so I have to see this! Good for Dieter!

It's good to see I'm not the only horror freak.  My Sister and nephew have both seen the trailer.  We have all decided to wait until we can get our hands on the DVD and then make a night of it and all watch it together.

It's good. Better than it might seem from the trailer.
Sure, there are a few awkward bits, but overall it was pretty cool. The premise and solid acting by all key players is all this movie needs to work perfectly. Cinematography and sound are okay, too.
And the finale - grand.

Overall - very good result, esp. if you consider the low budget.
And yes, kudos to Dieter Laser. He's awesome...:cool:

Definitely a must-see for fellow horror freaks.

Creepy, Crawly: ‘The Human Centipede’
There are some films whose premises are so brilliantly boiled-down to a single bizarre-yet-bold thesis and pursued with such focused mayhem that they have to be seen. There are other films that promise (or, more accurately, threaten) such grim and grisly sights that you feel you have to see the film itself to know exactly what kind of steps it takes as it treads where other films dare not go. There are other movies that stir up such a public hue and cry of shock and awe, apprehension and appreciation, that you hear about them a million times before you ever get the chance to see them, each hushed mention or barked dismissal another branch kindling the fire of your curiosity. And then there are films that, somehow, manage to achieve all three of those things.

In other words, yes, I've seen "The Human Centipede." Released via IFC films in a few theaters and via VOD, "The Human Centipede" has turned from a small, squirmy piece of cult cinema to a movie-fan phenomenon. NPR, in a May 7 broadcast, advised its listeners prior to a discussion of the film's plot that they may want to turn off their radio for three minutes; Roger Ebert's review carried no star rating, suggesting that to try and quantify "The Human Centipede" through such mortal means would be a fool's errand.

Written and directed by Tom Six, "The Human Centipede" is a variation on the traditional "evil-doctor-abducts-innocent-travelers-for-nefarious-means" plot, much as Led Zeppelin played "a variation" on the blues or being crushed to death by a bear is "a variation" on a hug. The film's villain, Dr. Heiter (played by Dieter Laser) is a retired surgical genius with a lunatic wish to surgically join three humans into one linear being with, yes, a shared digestive tract. The film is neither gruesomely explicit (although, I did close my eyes not once or twice but three times while watching it) nor willfully reticent to get down to the real nitty-gritty of the implications of Dr. Heiter's work.

There are things to admire in "The Human Centipede." It's beautifully shot and superbly paced (an escape attempt by Ashley C. Williams before the surgery is excruciating; a post-surgery escape attempt by Williams, Ashlynn Yennie and Akihiro Kitamura in which they literally have to work together is almost unendurable. Laser's also magnetically repellent. At the same time, I found myself comparing "The Human Centipede" to other movies I can't look at and yet can't look away from ("Audition," "Funny Games," and "À l'intérieur," specifically), and found that, while it's got plenty of perverse plot, "The Human Centipede" lacks the emotional resonance those films still manage to have under their gore and grit. Yes, "The Human Centipede" sinks into your gut, but I've got to also note that, a few moments excepted, it mostly bounces off your heart.

"The Human Centipede" is, ultimately, a test of how far you're willing to go to satisfy your morbid curiosity, and, as we head for a summer of iron-clad superheroes and Prada-clad women and stale sequels and revived TV shows, a rare chance to see a film that's defiantly uncommercial. Ultimately you may have to see "The Human Centipede" for yourself, if only so you can be on the inside of the fuss instead of tapping at the windows of it from outside. But bear in mind you'll probably watch at least part of it through your fingers.

The thing is, in order for there to be a sequal, it would require six subjects with heads up asses to qualify for The Human Centeped II. And so on. I would like to see the statistics on what cities like it the most (most ticket sales).

But if you watch South Park, this sounds pretty tame. Also, if you watch Hulu Horror movies, thier selection is surprisingly graphic, compared to the reviews of this. Hmm, actually the sequel should be about the doctors grandson, who will be played by Gene Wilder, who uncovers the lost book by Dr Leiter entitled "How I Did It."

Okay I just finished watching it and it was good. Not nearly as gross as it is being made out to be yes some blood and gore but less than most horror movies have nowadays.
