Trivia

The name "Gregory Gumtree" is a reference to the original post talked about in Smodcast #259. Gregory was the original name of "Mr. Tusk," and the post was found on a website named "Gumtree". See more »

Goofs

Lapointe mentions that he requires his "Double double, with eight sugars." A "double double" is a common way of ordering coffee in Tim Hortons (a very popular coffee chain in Canada) and refers to wanting your coffee with two creams and two sugars. The addition of "eight sugars" therefor makes no sense. See more »

Quotes

Howard Howe: Are you really mourning your loss of humanity? I don't understand. Who in the hell would want to be human? God Almighty... In all of my travels, I've only ever known a human to be an ocean of shit.

Human Centipede. Canadian.
17 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Let me be clear from the get go: I didn't like it. The problem, as far as I was concerned, was that captivity and body horror require a certain type of mood while Canadian self deprecating comedy requires another. It isn't like a horror movie with some comic relief sprinkled in, it is not a dark comedy, it's like someone butchered a horror and a comedy into an unholy hybrid to soothe their twisted psyche. I also feel that the very ending spoiled whatever pleasure I took from the film.

I liked the acting and I think that they made a really good effort with the special effects and the sets and everything. I also found interesting, although not all original, the idea to have a completely unlikable character as the victim, only to show that they were not that bad in the first place.

If you are satisfied with the story and plot, then there is no reason not to like this film. Unfortunately for me, I didn't like them.
