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.
