Trivia

Word "chuffa", used by Michael Parks' character in his dialog with Justin Long's character, was used by Bruce Willis in reference to what he thinks are unnecessary scenes during the filming of Cop Out (2010). Justin Long and Kevin Smith co-starred with Bruce Willis in movie Live Free or Die Hard (2007), Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense (1999) and Michael Parks in Planet Terror (2007) and Grindhouse (2007).

Kevin Smith makes Human Centipede
5 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I haven't enjoyed a moment of this movie.

I am sick to death of torture porn and I'm sick to death of critics claiming these movies to be "social commentary" on all sorts of things. And man do critics love that sort of shtick, starting with Salo and ending with Red State.

And people saying that this movie is not to be taken seriously - you know, when a movie is bad, it's not necessarily 'ironically bad', sometimes it's just bad.

When something is funny - I don't have to pretend it's funny and go into it with a certain mindset. Like I don't have to look at this sick crap and pretend that it is somehow funny.

It's too silly to be a horror flick and too disturbing to be a comedy. It's like a bad joke.
