The Human Centipede (First sequence)

de Tom Six


So you wanted fresh meat for Midnight X-treme? Well here you have a triple serving of new flesh. Two American girls and a Japanese man wind up at the home of a doctor (masterfully played by German Dieter Laser with a crooked smile and sunglasses to go along with the white coat) who has an operating room in his basement and a little sign at the entrance that says "my sweet 3-dog". This detail is crucial: the doctor will go about sewing one’s mouth to the other’s ass, creating a sort of scatological dog, since everything that exits one hole enters the other. Get rid of the tender little Alien on the Sitges poster: this is the Festival’s wildest creature!
