Every once in a while the production of a film mutates from a collaborative, sometimes combative effort into a bit of a legal mess. Evidently that is where Tom Six‘s Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) is headed. Six recently trumpeted that Dieter Laser, who played the insane surgeon of the first film, would return for the threequel.
But in an all-caps tweet this morning, Six proclaimed that he was preparing to sue Laser, soon following up with some details: “An actor who demands his own script changes which I as the THC creator didnt like. It was his way or the highway after he signed a contract!”
So can we take this to mean that Laser found something offensive in the script that Six has promised will see the creation of a five-hundred person long ass-to-mouth chain of craziness? Isn’t ‘offensive’ the whole point? Read the production’s official response to the situation below. Read More »
When Tom Six released his second Human Centipede film last year, he cemented his horror series as the subset of movies that a good many people love to hate. While the first film features a demented doctor (Dieter Laser) who sews three people together end to end, the black and white sequel features a damaged butterball (Laurence R. Harvey) who is so taken with the first film that he performs (or perhaps dreams of performing) his own demented surgery, and on an even grander scale than that of the original.
Now Six is prepping Human Centipede Part 3 (Final Sequence). His sister and producer Ilona Six makes this third film sound like it will continue the meta-commentary tendencies of the second, as it will feature the return of Laser and Harvey, and director Tom Six will play a part as well.

Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers?
