'Human Centipede 3' First Look

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. And while the jail setting doesn't look all that inviting, it's a lot better than pretty much anything seen in the second film.

As you can see from the shot, the star of the original film, Dieter Laser, returns for this one, and Laurence R. Harvey, star of the second, is on board as well. The full shot is below.

Here's the image:

Six talked to EW and explained,

THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross. But it will be the most controversial one politically-wise. It will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical of the three. Parts 1 and 2 have a very European feel. Part 3 is very American with the highest budget, a big movie score, widescreen, and an XXL human centipede. It's set in an American maximum security prison in the middle of the desert. Plot-wise I won't share details yet but if you let your imagination run wild you might get ideas.

Six also explained that the role played by Eric Roberts is "an a–hole governor," and that this film, the director's first shot in the US, will hopefully be the first in a string of American productions.

The director also proclaimed that, yes, this film will feature the longest "centipede" of the series, with 500 unfortunate people included. And it was all practical, and probably a giant pain in the, er, ass to do. The chain was achieved, he says, "by having a lot of brave American extras and doing it the megalomanic way like they did in Spartacus. F— CGI-created things."

Huh. Don't remember a human centipede in Spartacus. Maybe I'll have to watch that again.

The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) should be unleashed later this year.
