The Human Centipede returns, and it is still ridiculous, and still pretty disgusting. Tom Six‘s latest film, which he has said “will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical” of the series, also looks cheaper and somehow even nastier than the rest of the films.
This time the setting is a prison, where an overbearing warden (Dieter Laser, returning to the fold) literally gets prisoners in line by, well, you know the drill by now.

Here’s a cheery image: the first pic from Tom Six‘s third film in the Human Centipede series: Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence]) The shock here may be that the image doesn’t even feature a hint of humans sewn together end-to-end.

Some of the biggest news yesterday was that the UK rating board, the British Board of Film Classification, categorically rejected The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) for an UK release, based on the fact that (in the eyes of the board) the film links violence and sexual arousal in an unacceptable way.
I theorized that the move would end up being great publicity for the movie, and indeed there are a great many people talking about the movie now who otherwise might not have cared.
