Uh, Wait, What? Plot for HUMAN CENTIPEDE Blows My Mind.

Posted by Peter Hall - July 7th 2009 @ 1:15 pm

[UPDATE: Read my HUMAN CENTIPEDE review right here.]

I came across some photos for the Dutch/UK co-production HUMAN CENTIPIEDE the other day, but I had no idea the context. After a stop by Quiet Earth my mind has been blown.  And now it shall claim your sanity as well:

Internationally respected Siamese twin surgeon Dr. Josef Heiter has a demented vision for mankind’s future existence. He wants to remove human beings’ kneecaps so they have to exist on all fours and then surgically graft them mouth-to-anus to form a centipede chain. When two stranded female Americans arrive at his luxury home-cum-hospital looking for help, his long-gestating plan swiftly moves into chilling action with a shocking force. Kidnapping a third Japanese male tourist he begins the tissue matches, teeth removal and buttock moulding to create his triplet creature.

See, complainers!  This is what you get when you moan of no more original horror movies.  Technically HUMAN CENTIPEDE isn’t a feature yet, rather the first in a trilogy of short films showing the mad doctor’s pursuit.  All the same, I don’t want to think about being the last set of legs on a human centipede.

I keep hearing CLERKS II over and over in my head.  “You never go ass to mouth.  You never go ass to mouth.” Oh how it fell on HUMAN CENTIPEDE’s deaf ears.

If in London, surgically graft yourself to the excrement train on August 30th at FrightFest.

    It is impossible to read that synopsis without your jaw dropping. I dare you to try.

    See? Horror’s not dead, it’s just becoming increasingly ridiculous.

    By all means, bring on the “buttock moulding”.

    I hope you meant to use a pun in that comment Brian.

    Well deadlywizard, the director actually sat down with a surgeon and they discussed if it was possible. The surgeon then drew the diagrams, which are used in the film to explain to the 3 captives what their fate is!

    I really enjoyed this film, it’s not as twisted as you may think, well I didn’t think it was that bad. Dieter Laser is brilliant as the Doctor.

    His name is “Dieter Laser”? Really?

    I’m literally scratching my head trying to think of a worse fate! This is a brilliant idea for a splatter horror film. Whats truly terrible is that this splatter is a living suffering mass. I’d rather have the deranged maniac just kill me! I’m going to see this film, if I can find it?

    Genius! Absolute Genius! Not only will this film get a large cult following among the horror film fandom but a major crossover from fans of sick toilet porn.

    As awesome as this movie looks, it’s just not possible in real life:

    1) Once food makes it out the other end the nutrience has already been removed – anyone in position 2 or lower would wither and die.

    2) This doesn’t account for how they would get fluids, there’s not enough water in poo to live off.

    Saying that he consulted a surgeon is probably just hype to get the movie going :D

    can’t wait to see this.

    Only about 10% of the nutrients are used, the other 90% are excreted. The bacteria in the faeces is the problem. They’d die a slow and horrible death of septaecemia when their mouth stitching gets infected, rather than starve. What about a rupture? And you’re second point brings about an interesting notion, what happens to liquid waste? Probs don’t want to know. Obviously his victims are going to die any which way you look at it. Brings a new angle to the exclamation “Eat shit!”

    ok DAVE for your information number 2 and 3 are hooked up to IVs, their gastric systems are combined, and the dr takes pleasure in watching them eat poo (:
    besides number 3 dies of blood poisoning… guess poo doesnt taste good?

    The doctor put the second and third part of the chain on an IV drop but the third one does die from blood poising eventually.
