Spoiler alert! Also. No kids. Not for this movie. Not for this review. I mean it. If you love your children, heed my words.
OMG! WTF were we thinking? I know it’s been a while since we lasted posted so I figured let’s watch something REALLY sick! And I got what I asked for. HOLY HELL!!!!!!
I originally watched the first Human Centipede (2009) with Crimmy so it stood within reason he would be down with watching the second one. The first one was good. A little stomach turning but able to watch because it had a thread that you could follow. This one? Not so much!
If you think the first movie turned your stomach and grossed you out DO NOT WATCH THE SECOND ONE! I can’t stress this enough! If the mere thought of ass to mouth bothers you STOP READING THIS! Hell, if you had any sense at all you would have seen what we were reviewing and went “The faaaa? NO!” and skipped on to porn.
As for those who will continue to read (I continued to watch the movie after all) please, follow us down the shithole.
In terms of actual plot this has very little to offer. One man has a dream of making a 12 person centipede and tries to make that dream come true. That’s it. He’s basically catching his 12 people and making it happen. Plot end. They also throw in a little bit about his childhood. The enitre movie I had no idea if I was supposed to feel sorry for this crazy asshole or not. Cuz he is crazy. Not just about the centipedes either. He fapped with sandpaper people! And that’s just the beginning of sickness.
There is no actual dialogue in the entire film. Crazy guy is crazy…and silent. Which makes him EVEN CREEPIER! His looks, attitude, lack of speech, all of it make up one messed up man! He doesn’t need words to get across to you that he is insane. Talk about rapeface 80% of the time. And his utter joy with his plan is just……please god don’t let me sleep tonight. If I see that face in my sleep……
ANYWAY! The thing that makes this movie stand out. Acting? All good if silent. Setting? Creepy, which is also good. Gore factor? Off the charts ridiculously there. It’s like they said “Hey! THAT grossed people out? Then watch this!”
I heard a lot of people complain about the fact that you do not actually see the mouths sewn to ass. We have it here. You didn’t get to see someone actually poo into someone else’s mouth? We’ve got that too. Didn’t see enough of the surgery to see if it was actually 100% accurate? Please watch closely, we’ll do it without anesthetic this time. That’s right guys. All these people all awake when he smashes out their teeth with a hammer. You get to see tendons getting cut in a highly unhygienic manner. What this guy does not clean to use on a different person he coughs or wipes snot on. There is no diapers. There is no safely bandaged knees on the floor. Oh! And there’s injectable exlax. And if all that isn’t enough to turn your stomach, there’s also the pregnant woman.
I feel like a total psycho right now but I kinda enjoyed this. Some parts were like “Oh HELL NO!” but others were so gorey as to be hilarious. I guess I’m sick llike that. Did this movie make me nauseous? Hell yes. I won’t watch this one a second time. But it wasn’t because of the acting or anything like that. This was well made. Personally I would feel more comfortable rewatching Faces of Death.
I rate this a 5 of 5 Skulls. They achieved their goal and grossed me out. Bravo!
What the sweet fuck did I just watch? I can’t decide if this was a masterpiece, or literally so bad over the top horrendous that it swung around full circle. The lead in this film encapsules insanity and a broken mind in a way that I have never seen before. There had to have been some great deal of care put into researching this role. When a schizophrenic has an episode, this is what they look like. This is what they sound like. It doesn’t necissarily mean they commit serial murder, but all the same, this is what a person who has gone off the deep end right into beastial is really like. He doesn’t say a word the whole movie, but there is never a question as to his motives or his intentions.
Beyond that, there are some ups and downs. There is some stretching to the suspension of disbelief that a room full of people done up with duct tape and nothing but time will stay there without attempting SOMETHING, ANYTHING. The movie is in black and white, which initially bothered me, particularly after the sterility and pearlecense in the first film. While saying that, this movie would have failed in color. The sheer level of gore would have been comedic in color. The settings are real places, and represent the dingy unsavory world that created the main character.
There are only two ways to appreciate this movie. A true passion for horror, or a HUGELY forgiving sense of humor. If the missing father figure popped out at the end and waved his arms wide and smiled saying “THE ARISTOCRATS”, I would not have been one bit surprised.
I rate this movie 4 of 5 Skulls. Watch the first one first.
Overall rating: 4.5 Skulls.
