The Human Centipede : First Sequence (2009)
The film opens with two American girls who cant act for their lives in a hotel in Germany. The girls go out for a night on the Deutschland and their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. At this point in the film I hated these dumb white girls so much I almost couldn't wait for them to get what was coming to them and of course we all know what is going to happen. They end up in a mad surgeons house where he sews their mouths to their assholes and cuts the ligaments from the kneecaps so they can not stand up. During the surgery scene we see some nasty bits of gore. Chunks of flesh is cut out and an I.V. is ripped from a girls vein causing a pretty nasty wound. We also see some teeth being pulled out but this is all rather tame compared to the psychological disturbing horror that will come. The two girls are of course connected ass-to-mouth and they are the tail end of the Centipede. The front piece is a Japanese male victim. Once the insane doctor starts to describe the digestive system is when the film gets good. My mind suddenly changed from me wanting these dumb, trendy girls suffer to me wanting them to get away. The main reason I didn't really want to see this thing aside from the fact that it was just so trendy was I figured once we see the Centipede, where can the movie possibly go? well the movie just moves onward into a darker and more bleak territory. Nobody here really stands a chance and that's what makes it so great. The movie also sports a gun shot to the head, drownings, bullets to the guts, throat slashing, scalpel to the knee, and a cool cannibal throat ripping scene. Human Centipede is not for the squeamish but should be seen by anyone who likes psychologically disturbing cinema.
