This movie is about a couple that kidnaps a famous singer to use his seed for the baby they want. The woman is crazy about the singer and the man is sterile. That this leads to stupid situations is a given.
Two pretty but ditsy American girls are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany, they end up alone at night with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa. The next day, they awaken to find themselves trapped in a terrifying makeshift basement hospital along with a Japanese man. An older German man identifies himself as a retired surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins. However, his three "patients" are not about to be separated but joined together in a horrific operation. He plans to be the first person to connect people via their gastric systems. By doing so, he plans to bring to life his sick lifetime fantasy, the human centipede. Written by
Producer Ilona Six
No hope, no happy ending. Horror as it should be!!
Well, well, now, this is a little gem we have here, a rarity in the world of horror, a film that refuses to pander to a moronic audience. The brain-dead audience that is expecting the happy ending to come soothe their souls, the audience that truly believes that "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is pure horror. "Oooooh, how exciting, and a little bit terrifying, I'll go along for the thrill ride, but I expect that everything returns to normal afterwards."
For me, horror is not about cheap scares, creaking doors, horror is about a pervasive, life- denying, sickening atmosphere, horror is pure misanthropy, an utter negativity that is alien to petty, human existence. And that is why this film is so brilliant in its design and execution; there is absolutely nothing redeeming here, there is not the slightest glimmer of hope, you feel a wonderful calm when you know that these sheepish human beings are being sent straight into pure hell, without a chance of escape. Now, that is true horror, ladies and gentlemen!!
And I don't know which of the critiques I find most funny, on the one hand you have the boring, moralistic nay-sayers, pettily warning other people to not watch the film because of its disgusting, horrifying nature. Ha, ha, congrats nay-sayer, you could not have given a better review, a more healthy recommendation, your pointing finger is like honey to flies. On the other hand you have the intelligentsia, the academic high-brows who seems completely unable to watch a horror film without soiling its pure and visceral nature, by dragging it down into the mud of multi-layered meaning. Well, I guess it is much easier for squeamish minds to digest a horror-film of this nature if you consider the film to be a giant metaphor, if you intellectualize it, you thereby pacify it. Are you really unable to watch a horror-film of this sort without demeaning it to a lowly position of a social commentary? How sad. But that is man for you, always trying frantically to create cosmos out of chaos. Insert meaning where there is none. This film is greatly recommended!!
