‘Human Centipede’ Director Tom Six Takes on Censorship, Critics: ‘I Like the People Who Hate It’

22 May 2015 6:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tom Six, the notorious writer-director behind the infamous “Human Centipede” trilogy, has always been a bit of a mystery … until now. Having drawn comparisons to a modern-day Ed Wood, the 41-year-old Dutch filmmaker exhibits a gift for making audiences squirm. He may have a kindred spirit in the mad doctor at the heart of the first film, yet he’s also boyish and charming in person. Two days after the world premiere of “The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence),” Six sat down with TheWrap to discuss his long, messy journey as a filmmaker, from his humble beginnings on the original »

The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence Review: No. Nope. Uh-uh.

22 May 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

No. Nope. Uh-uh. In case you were expecting director Tom Six’s sicko human-anus-to-mouth-stitching horror saga to suddenly become better, or at least tolerable, by its third installment, let me just shatter your dreams right now. Human Centipede 3 is the worst of the lot. Is that even possible? Apparently, it is. Maybe it’s because it’s also the most ambitious — ambitious in a way that undermines the earlier films’ peculiarly chilly and disquieting world view, their … wait, integrity can’t possibly be the word I’m looking for, can it? Let me put it this way: I suspect that even those who consider themselves fans of the Human Centipede franchise will feel betrayed by this outing.This time, the setting is a prison, run by a wide-eyed, bellowing cartoon-demon of a warden named Bill Boss (played by Dieter Laser, who played the demented visionary Doctor Heiter in the first »

The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) – The Review

21 May 2015 7:06 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

100% Politically incorrect. 100% Medically accurate, so claims Tom Six. 100% complete garbage. Harsh? Not really.

I am not going to step onto a soap box and preach to you about how some films have gone too far. Please, go further. I am not going to rant about how certain things should never be portrayed on film. Please, push the envelope and break boundaries. I will not call for censorship and restraint in exercising free speech. Please, by all means, shock and disgust us till the cows come home. However, what I will do, is to persistently and relentlessly call things as I see them.

This movie is garbage. Not because its vulgar or offensive, but because its a failure. I have seen the entire trilogy now, and while in all honesty I can admit that I am no big fan of the franchise as a whole, my disdain reaches its monumental peak »

Oz deal for Cannes' first 3D porn film

21 May 2015 3:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The first 3D porn movie ever screened in official selection at the Cannes Film Festival has been sold to nearly 40 markets including Australia.

Gaspar Noé.s Love stars Karl Glusman as a young American reminiscing over an intense affair he had in Paris with Electra (Aomi Muyock). Her suggestion of a threesome with Omi (Klara Kristin) ultimately unravels their relationship.

.Its sexually explicit content, which might pose a problem in a handful of territories such as the Us, does not appeared to have deterred buyers,. Screen Daily drily reported.

Some reviewers rated the film as less scandalous and daring than the Argentinian-born French director.s previous efforts such as Irreversible (2002) and Enter The Void (2009).

.Even though one critic labelled Love the director.s tamest film, it hardly is that, considering the numerous, extremely graphic sex scenes in which nothing is left to the imagination,. Pete Hammond wrote. »

The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) Review

21 May 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) is an empty, self-gratifying, wannabe exploitation flick that’s crafted by a monkey who started by flinging poo at a wall with artistic intent – yes, The Human Centipede (First Sequence) has value – yet has now devolved into a smut-peddling attention whore who keeps flinging poo just to stay relevant. I wish I could stop my review of Tom Six’s worst movie to date right there, but I cannot – because that would be doing all of you a disservice (and because I have a minimum wordcount requirement). Six’s franchise has turned from a cheeky attempt to push unimaginable boundaries into a “for shocks only” nightmare that prays college film students will dare one another to sit through one last ass-to-mouth ensemble, cringing with every life-giving passage of waste. Unfortunately, Six’s third film is a dare with no winners, whether or not you »

The Oral History of the Human Centipede Movies (It’s Pretty Gross)

21 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the late ’00s, at the height of horror’s lazy regress into found-footage knockoffs, tired torture porn, and teen-slasher remakes, Dutch writer-director-provocateur Tom Six and his co-producer sister Ilona decided that the genre must die so that he might bring it back to, frankly, disgusting life. The murder weapon? 2009's The Human Centipede — a film about a lunatic doctor (and here is where the squeamish or easily offended should stop reading this piece) who conjoins three kidnap victims anus-to-mouth-to-anus-to-mouth. Audaciously offensive, Human Centipede quickly became the stuff of midnight-movie and sleepover-party legend. The film generated polarizing notice from major critics, including Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman (who didn't hate it) and Roger Ebert, who refused to assign a star rating, explaining that Six's depraved effort "occupies a world where the stars don't shine." But it's a world some people were eager to visit. The film sold 55,000 DVD and Blu-ray copies »

Film Review: ‘The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)’

20 May 2015 6:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rarely has the word “final” been so welcome in a title as it is in “The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence).” Tom Six’s latest, largest-scaled and most lamentable entry yet in the gross-out horror series manages to be completely obnoxious even before the gross stuff kicks in. Of course, that will only heighten its curiosity value among the usual seekers of lowest-level genre excess. Pic opens May 22 in New York and Los Angeles, though as with its predecessors, primary fan access will be through simultaneous release to VOD.

The prior chapters’ leads return in new roles here as warden and accountant of the George H.W. Bush State Prison, a (presumably Texan) hellhole experiencing constant staff turnover and inmate violence. Only exacerbating those woes is cartoonishly maniacal Bill Boss (the original “Centipede’s” mad doctor, Dieter Laser), a chrome-domed German of a type that would seem over-the-top even in 1970s Italian Nazisploitation cinema. »

James Gandolfini was approached about appearing in The Human Centipede 3

19 May 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

I'm currently in the midst of re-watching The Sopranos and discovering all over again just what a great talent James Gandolfini was. The actor sadly passed away in 2013 but still had several films in the can including Enough Said and The Drop, but according to The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) director Tom Six, it's possible that the sequel to the body-horror franchise may have been among them. Tom Six mentioned in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he had »

Review: The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)

There is one genuinely entertaining moment in the conclusion to Tom Six’s ass-to-magnum opus, The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). Following a particularly nasty encounter with an inmate, penitentiary warden Bill Boss (The Human Centipede’s Dieter Laser) proudly, arrogantly reiterates to the prisoner’s doctor, “I castrated him.” Without missing a beat, an exasperated Dr. Jones

James Gandolfini Was Asked to Star in 'Human Centipede 3'

19 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The "Human Centipede" series is coming to a (gross) end this weekend, with the release of "Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)." But according to the horror franchise's mastermind, it could have starred one of the most revered actors of our time.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, writer-director Tom Six said that he had a two specific actors in mind when writing the part of Governor Hughes, a role that ultimately went to Eric Roberts. Who else was in the running? None other than late "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini.

Yes, you read that right. According to Six, he approached Gandolfini about the part, and even gave the actor a screenplay to read, before the onetime Tony Soprano ultimately passed on the project. Gandolfini died of a heart attack in 2013.

"I had James Gandolfini in mind and Eric Roberts. I was talking to them both," Six explained to EW. "But when »

‘Human Centipede III’ Review: More Boring Gore, To Even Less Effect

19 May 2015 1:10 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It would be one thing if I or any film reviewer found writer-director Tom Six’s “The Human Centipede III: Final Sequence” to be unclean; after all, Six’s latest entry in the series he began with 2009’s “The Human Centipede” takes great pains to offer wound upon wound, slur upon slur, and violation on violation, with no gender, orientation, ethnicity or religion left unmocked and uninsulted. But Six wants that response; to a no-talent schlock-merchant like him, outrage isn’t part of the marketing plan but rather is the marketing plan, every cry of shock or clutched set of pearls an. »

Review: 'The Human Centipede: Part III (Final Sequence)' is Repulsive, Rapey, and…Culturally Conscious?

Read More: Watch: The Trailer for 'The Human Centipede 3' is Here to Gross You Out "The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence" was passionately crafted by Dutch writer-director Tom Six to be one of the most viscerally repulsive horror movies of the last decade. But bigger usually isn't better for most franchises, even when the filmmakers are in on the joke: The third entry, "The Human Centipede Part III (Final Sequence)" takes the mouth-to-butt torture porn idea from its predecessor and adds more victims, more butts to which mouths are fasted, and takes a big, wide swing at its detractors. However, it's not just the disgusting premise bound to invite criticism of this mediocre entry in a series that probably outstayed its welcome with the first entry, and somehow stuck around anyway. It looked like things couldn't go much more depraved than "The Human Centipede 2," in which a man has »

Repulsive New Trailer For Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) Slithers Online

7 May 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Tom Six doesn’t have to cast the net too far to find his fair share of skeptics, who denounce his horror franchise as tasteless and gratuitous. But to write off The Human Centipede series in such a way would undermine its satirical and, quite frankly, bonkers edge, and its a tone that Six will look to conclude with upcoming threequel, Human Centipede III (Final Sequence).

Retaining the 100% medically accurate claims from the original films, Final Sequence will see Tom Six play a director not unlike himself, who is approached by a twisted prison security guard setting out to create the longest human sequence to date. Such a feat would be carried out on the cell mates on death row, surgically attaching all 100 of them in what is surely a fate worse than death.

From the trailers released thus far, Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) looks to hone the »

Plot: Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Laser), leading a big state prison in the Us of A, has a lot of problems; his prison statistically has the highest amount of prison riots, medical costs and staff turnover in the country. But foremost he is unable to get the respect he thinks he deserves from his inmates and the state Governor (Roberts).

‘Human Centipede Part 3’ Trailer Promises More Insanity, More Gore (Video)

6 May 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The official trailer of “The Human Centipede Part III Final Sequence” shows even more blood, gore and “10o percent political incorrectness.” The horror film tells the story of a notorious prison where the warden looks to create a 500-person centipede to solve its discipline problems and to regain control of the inmates. The prisoners are sewn together and the inevitable issue of whether they can stay alive is questioned in the trailer, which was released Wednesday by IFC Films.

Human Centipede 3 Gets A Horribly Disgusting New Trailer

6 May 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Given that there have been two films in the franchise, you probably already know whether or not you want to see The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). This new trailer from IFC Midnight isn.t going to change your mind at all, but if excited about this movie, it should please you. Check it out below. Back in 2010, director Tom Six caught the world.s attention with The Human Centipede (First Sequence), a little indie film about a German lunatic sewing wayward tourists together, mouth to anus. That was followed by a sequel, (Full Sequence), in 2011, and now he.s back with (Final Sequence), just in case you were wondering how the saga was going to turn out. And as you can tell from this trailer, he.s definitely taking things up a few notches. The first Centipede was only three people long, while the second was a twelve-person »

Watch: 'Human Centipede' Goes Medieval in New 'Human Centipede 3' Trailer

6 May 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There's little new that can be said about Tom Six's gross-out trilogy, particularly as its third and (supposedly) final chapter, The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), crawls onto VOD later this month. For better or for worse, however, the writer/director is not holding his cards close to his vest. The newest trailer for the third installment shows, if anything beyond violent mayhem, he's goes full-out medieval on his once "medically accurate" series. This new trailer, which showcases returning stars Laurence R. Harvey and a now-bald Dieter Laser, has our main character proudly announce he's "gonna bring back medieval torture practices," as he gears up to spawn a 500-person long human centipede from a line-up of convicted felons. They say it'll stop prison torture, and end violence inside the cells and ... yada, yada, yada. You get the idea. Along the way, Laser sticks his head in a bucket and screams inside it. »
