No hope, no happy ending. Horror as it should be!! (by glyptoteque)
Well, well, now, this is a little gem we have here, a rarity in the world of horror, a film that refuses to pander to a moronic audience. The brain-dead audience that is expecting the happy ending to come soothe their souls, the audience that truly believes that "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is pure horror. "Oooooh, how exciting, and a little bit terrifying, I'll go along for the thrill ride, but I expect that everything returns to normal afterwards."For me, horror is not about cheap scares, creaking doors, horror is about a pervasive, life- denying, sickening <more>
atmosphere, horror is pure misanthropy, an utter negativity that is alien to petty, human existence. And that is why this film is so brilliant in its design and execution; there is absolutely nothing redeeming here, there is not the slightest glimmer of hope, you feel a wonderful calm when you know that these sheepish human beings are being sent straight into pure hell, without a chance of escape. Now, that is true horror, ladies and gentlemen!!And I don't know which of the critiques I find most funny, on the one hand you have the boring, moralistic nay-sayers, pettily warning other people to not watch the film because of its disgusting, horrifying nature. Ha, ha, congrats nay-sayer, you could not have given a better review, a more healthy recommendation, your pointing finger is like honey to flies. On the other hand you have the intelligentsia, the academic high-brows who seems completely unable to watch a horror film without soiling its pure and visceral nature, by dragging it down into the mud of multi-layered meaning. Well, I guess it is much easier for squeamish minds to digest a horror-film of this nature if you consider the film to be a giant metaphor, if you intellectualize it, you thereby pacify it. Are you really unable to watch a horror-film of this sort without demeaning it to a lowly position of a social commentary? How sad. But that is man for you, always trying frantically to create cosmos out of chaos. Insert meaning where there is none. This film is greatly recommended!!
I saw this film at FrightFest 2009 London. I was totally shocked by how good it is! It was the best film at Frightfest this year for me. Very Original, Very Scary and Very Very Funny!!! Great Performance from those international actors. German, Japanese, American thrown in one chaotic situation. The audience was loving every moments of it. I love the ending too. It is called "The Human Centipede" but it really is about us human and that is why it is such a scary film.. It deals with the human dignity and the monster living inside of us. Nowadays the horror films are pretty much the <more>
same everywhere. But this one will be something you have never ever seen before. Crazy movie. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!MUST WATCH.
Grotesque...yes...but still a true work of art (by mhlkf4)
As was stated in previous reviews, this movie is senselessly grotesque and has no true point...but most horror movies don't need a point. It had a very twisted YET very unique plot. How many people have redone the whole damsel in distress horror movie. The monster tearing people apart has been done to death. I understand that Six meant this as a dig in response to getting such poor reviews before...but it really is a work of art. My argument: it has a unique plot, it has a believable character in the doctor , and it certainly goes to extreme lengths to set it apart from cult classics and <more>
new generation gore fests. It IS a work of art. Six should be applauded for his creativity and gall to go where no one went or wanted to go before. He meant to make a statement, and he did.Like it or not, it makes an impression. P.S. I wasn't a fan, but I don't have to like it to call it a work of art
I was lucky enough to see this at Frightfest and came away thinking I'd really seen something disturbing and original. Easily the most original and likely to be lasting film of the festival. A true cult is born. Something of the tone of David Lynch and the same effect of queasy laughs and impression of real obsessive imagery as th first time I saw Eraserhead. Also a little of Cronenburg. although it's not at all comparable as a film its the closest I can get to describing it's impact. on the surface it's a horror film with one of the greatest mad scientist performances ever <more>
from Dieter laser it also has a really disturbing central idea. The less said the better as the novelty is part of the fun. It's filmed really cheaply but competently and I look forward to the sequel. Give the man the money so he can get on with part 2!
Saw THC at the Frightfest in the UK. It caused a sensation. What a ride and hype! The audience loved it! This is probably one of the best horror films since Hellraiser. Highly original mouth-to-ass sickness, pitch black humor and unforgettable/ jaw dropping imagery.But above all very scary and intelligent! I wouldn't recommend eating before viewing this movie. Dieter Laser' baltic storm performance as Dr.Heiter is brilliant, so are the beautiful middle and tail girl. Writer/ director Tom Six is a genius! Compared with the early work of David Cronenberg and Takashi Miike THC will <more>
become a cult classic. Mark my words!a masterpiece! 9/10
Tom Six, a Horror Master in the Making (by kalebedward)
I was fortunate enough to experience Human Centipede:First Sequence at Fantastic Fest in Austin, and as the name suggests, it is unlike anything you have ever seen. Now, there are plenty of killer movies, and plenty of monster movies, but as a world, we've really gotten away from the mad scientist movies of the forties and fifties. Cronenberg's early work comes to mind, but it's so much more cerebral than the visceral thrills Mr. Six has in store for us. Not to say much about the plot but, it involves the evil scientist, the AWESOME Dieter Laser , performing extremely weird and <more>
unprecedented surgeries on a group of patients and the bond formed between the patients as a result of the shared experience. Not for anyone but horror fans, or maybe mad scientists, this film gives you what other horror films won't. It never pulls back or flinches, and I challenge even the most seasoned gorehounds not to squirm or wince during the films most challenging sequences. Thank you Tom Six for this wonderful? film. I can't wait to see the Full Sequence!
Intriguing or repulsive? likely both (by Simon_Says_Movies)
It is very difficult to review a movie called The Human Centipede First Sequence . There is little chance one will be lured to a viewing under false pretences so if a movie delivers what you expect, is it not then an undisputable success? Yes and no as the film is a struggle between concept, execution and nausea but what is admirable, in addition to its fearless boundary pushing, is its restraint. Yes you read that correctly, restraint. Contrary to so many of the torture porn films that try to punch up the shock value through sadism The Human Centipede has almost no blood and lets your <more>
imagination fill in the horrific blanks.If you know nothing about this movie, allow me to enlighten you. The film revolves around a deranged surgeon who propels the old hallmark of a 'mad doctor' to delirious extremes. He kidnaps people and sews them together mouth to anus yes you also read that correctly . Through that procedure which involves removal of the teeth and stitching together the skin of the forward and rear victim, the gastric system is thereby connected. This combined with slicing ligaments in the knees to prevent erect walking and you got yourself one human centipede.Likely, your mind is already made up on if you want to see this movie; you are either intrigued or repulsed likely both . What elevates The Human Centipede from its high concept is the tension, the elements of pitch black humour, the subtle skewering of horror conventions and finally the performance of the main villain. The good Doctor Heiter is played by German Dieter Laser or as I like to pronounce in a bad Arnold Schwarzenegger impression, 'Deeder Lazer' and he is truly terrifying; icy, ruthless and completely unsympathetic towards his captives. He has no motives behind his motives. His drive to create this abomination stems from the death of his '3-dog', which I'm sure you can fathom what that entails, but his desire to attempt anything in this realm to being with is never explored.The Human Centipede is directed by Tom Six and the man knows how to terrify and disgust in unison. The movie does lose some of its momentum around the ¾ mark but bursts back to life at the finale. The final scene is perhaps the most powerful and affecting in the entire movie and stayed with me far after the initial shock had faded. The slogan for this movie reads '100% medically accurate' and while I'm unsure of the validity of that statement it really stands as a moot point; plausible or preposterous, The Human Centipede does its job the best since the original Saw.Tom Six is already planning a sequel entitled The Human Centipede Full Sequence . The dark cloud that looms over this project will be the tendency of directors to try an one-up their originals, usually through increased gore, instead of expanding upon the elements that worked, such as the tension and the allowed space for the viewers mind to go wild. Necessity of a follow-up aside, this is one of the single most brazen and memorable works of horror in many years; see it if you dare.Read my review of the sequel: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1530509/reviews-106
As I have been endlessly disappointed by IFC film presentations of the horror genre, I practically knew I was making a mistake when I ordered this on Comcast. I'd heard enough talk about it that my curiosity simply got the best of me.I was shocked to find myself giggling giddily at the close of the film.There was so much to like about this movie. For instance, the villain is superbly portrayed as the ultimate mad scientist. I was quite impressed with how absolutely disconnected from humanity he is. He never communicates WITH his victims in any single instance, but simply communicates TO <more>
them at all times, regardless of anything they do or say or scream . I don't think I've seen that done in a villain quite to this degree. Mr. Laser does a magnificent job here.I was even impressed with the two female leads. They conveyed their parts very well, in my opinion.The camera work is also terrific. There were honestly a few very impressive shots in this film.Now, the premise, as you all know, is very sickening to think about. Thankfully, there's nothing too graphic other than a few quick shots of "the surgery." There's not graphical depiction of "nature taking it's course," shall we say. I think it's a good move - the thought of it all is enough, honestly. Considering the subject matter, I'd say it was presented as tastefully as it could be.One more thing: I loved the end. It was horrible, and I loved it! I would say if the premise of this film doesn't absolutely turn your stomach to the point that you wouldn't want it spelled out for you in more detail, and you love a good horror yarn, you don't want to miss this one.It is one of the best IFC films has ever offered
What most drives my love for the genre of horror is the room for creativity. It's levels of creativity can stretch further than any other genre. Well, I think so anyways. And this nimbly bimbly thought process of mine is backed up with the ridiculousness that is, The Human Centipede.And I'm speaking for myself now, so don't get all prissy, but one of my favorite ideas in really any genre of film is when the Mad Scientist is involved. And luck be true, what we have here is basically a story that revolves around a monstrously evil, Mad Scientist. And to make matters worse, he's <more>
German. The Human Centipede: First Sequence they should skipped out on that last part , begins with a couple of high-end broads who are traveling Europe and just living and loving life. So, they're heading out for the night to meet up with German hottie, and party it up, but of course along the way, they break down, the cell phone doesn't' work, they're accosted by a pervy foreigner and then sh!t really hits the fan. If you've heard of this movie before, you know exactly what is going to eventually go down, so I don't need to say anymore. If you don't know about the movie...just read the title.Besides that other Serbian Film being talked about so much this year, The Human Centipede is easily the other most talked about horror film coming out. It's supposed to be disgusting, vile and downright gross. Well, put those party hats on because for more or less, it is. You're not shown extremely graphic stuff, but what you do see, and what is implied is done well enough to get you squirming in your undies.The film delivered of course in the insanity department, but it also succeeded, almost perfectly, in how they casted the Mad Scientist. I first thought it was Udo Kier, but soon thereafter realized not only was it not Mr. Kier, but this guy is arguably cooler than Kier! This guy was a stone-cold villain, with menacing stares, peculiar expressions and an overall evil-as-sin demeanor. Hats off to that guy for carrying the film, as if his character wasn't as strong as he was, this film could have possibly come off as some joke film. Some of the lines he delivers are just pure, psychotic, German gold. 'My sweet centipede.' Hahaa...good stuff. The film ain't perfect though. Setting up the movie was cliché, as the girls were entirely unlikeable, and rather stupid. Actually even deep in the movie, the decision making on their parts verged on mental retardation. And this is where you're supposed to realize it's a horror movie, led by a Mad Scientist. The good stuff is what matters, and believe me, the story itself and how it's presented was all good.I admittedly had high hopes for The Human Centipede. I wanted over the top sickness, I wanted to enjoy the acting, and I wanted something just memorable. And that's exactly what I got. Expect a fun performance by heir doctor, a human centipede, and sickness, and you should have a fun time with this.
