Plot
There are few things worse than a car breakdown leading you under a psychopath’s scalpel blade. Getting stitched buttock to mouth to your best friend and to a stranger by the hand of a mad surgeon is one of them. Rarely has torture porn used such a strong gimmick. The synopsis alone inspires fear and disgust. The Human Centipede is downright traumatizing and may make you sick.
Aside from some frustratingly improbable subplots, and despite the surreal premise, you buy what you see on screen. It’s well shot and not as cheesy as one might think. There is pretty much a single location and a small amount of well fleshed characters. This setup allows for confined build-up that culminates into an amazing claustrophobic carnage so intense some might feel like pausing the film.
You will not want to eat before, during or after watching, and it will mark you for weeks. The disgusting stuff is mostly implicit and the gore limited, yet we feel the pain. It builds tension masterfully, makes you fear the worst, gives you even worse than implied, mixes humiliation, kink, sadism, fetishism, even. It’s one sick movie, but it hits all the notes the ideal horror movie should.
