#66 -- The Human Centipede [First Sequence] (2009)

Director: Tom Six
Rating: 3 / 5

I figured, since there seems to be so much hype surrounding this movie, that it was about time that I see it. This review could be very short. It's very simple, and the movie can be described in one word: Ew. I'm not sure if I'm glad I watched this or not. It starts off with two girls who are traveling through Europe on vacation. They are invited to a party but get lost on the way. They end up getting a flat tire, and travel through the woods to find a house. The man inside agrees to call the car service for them (he doesn't call), but he ends up drugging them and tying them down to hospital beds instead.

They're trapped in the house with another man, but the doctor decides that he isn't good enough, kills him, and gets an Asian man instead. The doctor happens to be a brilliant surgeon who specializes in separating Siamese twins. He surgically combines the three captors, anus to mouth. The Asian man is in the front, so we get to hear him screaming in Japanese throughout most of the movie. 

The cops eventually get suspicious and search the doctor's home. It's completely pointless because he ends up killing them anyways. As I said, I'm not quite sure if I enjoyed this or not. It was interesting simply because it was disgusting, and I'm left wondering how awkward the actors felt with their mouths stuck to the others' assholes. The reason I'm kind of on the fence about it is because of the way it ended. I don't want to ruin the ending, but it...well, it doesn't really end at all. I know that is because there is a sequel coming out soon, and that's the only reason I'm letting it slide. If I didn't know that, I'd probably have a much different opinion; but as it is, I was intrigued by the nastiness of it, and I'm interested to see what happens in the next installment.
