The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) Reviews

Anton Bitel
Scene 360

Martin may lack his rôle model's surgical skills, professional tools, scientific interests or concern with clinical hygiene - but in all his sick, sweaty grotesquery, Martin is us.

We Got This Covered

The gratuitous and exploitative nature of the violence, coupled with very little story development and plot, makes for a film without any real purpose other to shock and appall.

Aisle Seat

Rather than trying to entertain us, director Tom Six goes all out in an attempt to make us sick, to offend our very sensibilities. He has succeeded. And screw him for that.

Mocks torture porn while being the worst form of it all at the same time, The Human Centipede II personifies what not to do with a sequel.

It's not just graphic; it's contemptuous.

Ebert Presents At The Movies

It tries to be more disgusting, more outrageous than this idea of a 12-person human centipede. The result is, by design, absolutely no good.

Uses its status as a meta film to comment on the contentious argument that violence in cinema can somehow can be blamed for violence in real life.

Full Sequence could be considered an interesting counterpart to Gus van Sant's Elephant... But what it lacks in the subtlety of van Sant's film, it makes up with scenes of genital mutilation.

The enormous shift in stylistic focus between [Six's] first and second film and the technical skill he displays (notably in his superb sound design) suggests he has much to offer beyond the self-imposed limitations of his bum-to-gum oddities.

Sight and Sound

monochrome mise en scène and surrealist flourishes more reminiscent of Eraserhead and Bad Boy Bubby than of anything in conventional horror.

I'll grant benefit of the doubt. Right before I huddle in the fetal position and ease my fractured soul with a few hours of Fraggle Rock.

It shifts effortlessly between a twisted study in obsessive psychosis and barbed sardonic satire.

It's the sort of thing that gets postmodernism a bad name.

This is London

There are echoes of David Lynch's Eraserhead during the more scary, nightmarish moments but Six soon resorts to shock tactics.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

This wearisome sequel to the yucky cult shocker, by Dutch horror maestro Tom Six, brings the Human Centipede franchise straight to what can only be called its "Godfather 4" stage.

Daily Telegraph

It would be unfair to say the film is completely without merit, but what little there is is drowned out by its blaring vileness.

PopMatters

Six is playing it smart...Instead of trying to rewrite history or reverse the condemnation, he's purposefully playing into the hands of the hysterics.

Reel Film Reviews

...a major disappointment that admittedly ups the gore quotient but fails in virtually every other respect.

Electric Sheep

If you can tune into its warped, droll humour and excessive brutality, this is one hell of an experience you are sure not to forget.
