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.

After all the buzz and controversy surrounding Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)‘s “banned in Britain” status, director Tom Six and the British Board of Film Classification have finally reached an agreement that will allow the film to be screened in the UK after all.

Last week when we reported the October release date for The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence, I bemoaned the lack of an IFC-cut trailer for the film. Now a teaser has shown up, but it is for the Australian release of the movie.
It’s difficult to tell whether this teaser actually features any footage from the film, though it certainly seems to use audio from Full Sequence. (I suspect this is video shot just for the ad campaign.) The teaser also trumpets many quotes from the UK Film Board’s ruling to refuse classification for the film, effectively banning the movie in the UK. Finally, this claims that the film will be cut for the US release, though whether that is actually the case is unverified at this point. Hit the jump for the intense teaser. Read More »
