Gruesome, Repulsive and Excessive Black Humor, but also an Original Trash Movie
The New Yorkers Lindsay (Ashley C. Williams) and Jenny (Ashlynn Yennie) are on vacation traveling through Europe. In Germany, they meet a waiter that invites them to go to a party in the nightclub Bunker. They rent a car but they get lost in a lonely road in the woods. When they have a flat tire, they do not replace the tire and prefer to seek for help instead. They reach a house and they are received by the sociopath mad scientist Joseph Heiter (Dieter laser) that drugs them.
When Lindsay and Jenny awake, they find that they are tied to a bed in a laboratory in the basement of the house. Sooner, Dr. Heiter brings the Japanese tourist Katsuro ( Akihiro Kitamura) and introduces himself as a former surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins. Further, he exposes his insane project of creating the human centipede, joining three human beings through the mouths and anuses.
"The Human Centipede (First Sequence)" is a gruesome and repulsive film with excessive black humor (and bad taste), but also an original trash movie. After the polemic in Brazil with "A Serbian Film", I have decided to see several polemic films to see how far directors and writers dare to go. "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)" is nasty, but not nastier than, for example, Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Salò o le 120 Giornate di Sodoma" that is considered "art-film" by the professional critics.
When Dr. Heiter orders Katsuro to feed Lindsay, I have almost vomited but I was warned before seeing this film and I had to option of not watching it. But despite the heavy hand of the director, I did not dislike this insane film. Actually I prefer films like this than those that are predictable and full of clichés. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "A Centopéia Humana" ("The Human Centipede")
