The Human Centipede

Film review

I'm a little behind, but I've only just seen this.

For those that don't know, The Human Centipede is about a mad surgeon who has designed a new procedure, to connect humans together via the gastric band to form a centipede. It's been getting both good and awful reviews.

Personally I enjoyed it. It didn't drag, and I found the concept pretty interesting. I'm glad they didn't add loads of gore, they kept quite a bit to your imagination. The only thing I didn't like was part of the ending, but the rest was good.

I'm not sure why it's been getting such bad reviews; sure, it's not the best film in the world, but it's hardly the worst. The way people write about it it's the sickest film they've ever seen, but it really isn't that bad. It's no worse than Aftermath, any of the Guinea Pig films, most Miike Takashi's, or even more mainstream ones like Clockwork Orange and The Hills Have Eyes (bad comparisons I know).

It's shot fairly well, acted well (ish, Dieter Laser is great but the female leads are only good once they can't talk), and has a decent premise.

What did anyone else think?
