Not scary, not enjoyable, what is this? The premise is so stupid where did Tom Six get this idea from? I quess we should be grateful he expressed himself by making a movie about this as opposed to him actually doing this in real life. But still, he should get himself looked at. Honestly the movie is nothing but gross, and has no suspense, mystery, terror, or payoff like a real horror movie should have. Simply gross and not worth watching.

Going in, I had assumed that this was going to be a story of a scientist who looked like a centipede and wanted to make others look like him. Lol I was so wrong. But, honestly, the vulgar and disgust of this movie isn?t what?s terrible about it. Despite the lack of human connection in this movie, this movie is unwatchable because of the horrendous acting, the lame dialogue and the dissatisfying ending.

THIS MOVIE IS ABSOLUTELY TRASH. I was definitely disgusted by the entire movie. This wasn't scary just plain nasty. No point to this film. I almost threw up. This movie fills me up with regret. Whoever directed and scripted this film is a real psychopath. This is a disgrace to the film industry. Netflix should reconsider what their movie selections are!!!!!!

Despite the grotesque theme its played out fairly well. It's gruesome and horrifying at times, but it does exactly what it sets out to do.

As disgusting and grotesque as this film may look, it's actually not all that good. The execution is pretty bad, and, although Dieter Laser gives a pretty strong performance, the acting is dull, just like the overall tone of this movie. It's one that will surely shock anyone, it is disturbing, but it's heavily flawed and overall, I didn't really like this movie. It's just another torture porn film, that only hard core horror fans, who aren't looking for quality, would enjoy. And I, unfortunately, don't think the sequels won't be any better.

This movie is called the most "disgustingly disturbing movie ever made" but I don't really agree with that, I actually quite enjoy this movie it's the best out of the three.

The Human Centipede truly pushes the boundaries of cinema; the sheer grotesqueness of both the premise and actual delivery are certainly enough to put off even the most strong-willed of viewers from ever eating (or excreting, in some cases) again. The film - in my eyes - is a total anomaly. With 99% of horror films, a solid script is required for being investment into characters; THC lacks any degree of a decent script, however the pure brutality of the events onscreen simply does nothing other than draw in sympathy: for both the actors onscreen and the helpless viewer.
Verdict: C-

Very messed up film.
Acting is poor from pretty much everybody...but Dieter Laser does create a good villain in Dr Heiter. Twisted idea from a first time filmmaker but surprisingly good cinematography considering the low budget. This film should be seen to satisfy curiosity and for not much else. The depths of the human psyche are indeed disturbing sometimes.
Don't think this will warrant a re-watch. I wonder what the sequel will bring to the table.

Sadomasochistic torture porn masquerading as a horror film.  I felt dirty afterwards.

The movie is interesting in the sense that it raises fundamental questions, such as: is it acceptable to give a camera to untalented, demented people? No, it's not. This is why I've never watched this movie, and of course never will.

This was the worst movie I have ever seen. It did nothing but gross me out and make me bored. I would never recommend this movie!!!!

Yep. I saw it. "First Sequence." Hm.

And.... yeah. You get what you pay for, for sure. But. I liked it way more than I thought I was going to. A health dose of dark humor with one delightful running gag, a solidly delivered villain (a freakish fellow, even by German standards), and a kooky and original concept, even in modern lands of the Internets blazing most trails of perversity long before anyone else can get there, making the idea all the more impressive.

But what was most impressive about this film to me was its rather delicate touch. No, really. I'm not going to bother going into what this film is about if you don't know. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, and you want to, that's entirely up to you-- But the single all important surgery scene that builds for sometime is actually relatively short. And very low in gore. And it quickly follows up with it's disarming humor blacker than most Holocaust jokes.

Once the creation is complete, the two female main characters.... well, they don't really talk much for the rest of the film. Which, admittedly, is a bit of a relief. But the honor of head of the Centipede belongs to some random Japanese man similarly kidnapped by our Nazi scientist throwback, who, funny enough, no one (outside the miraculously subtitled audience) can actually understand. The mad doctor speaks German and English and the two women... well, they *understand* English. And lacking a common language with the only part of your creation that actually understands you seems like a poor choice, but it makes for fascinating film. Like a powerful monologue he gives near the end... which is completely lost on all who heard it.

And the end. The end is very good. It really had me going in the last act. I didn't know where it was going to go. It had seen all I thought I could possibly see. But it was truly horrific, the way that horror needs to be: understated, cerebral, and personal. I was impressed that in all I had seen, the finale had value and effect, even after the shock of it had not worn off in the slightest.

So... basically, a nice "feel good" ending is I guess what I'm saying, I think.

I rewatched it today just to get it fresh in my mind so I can understand it. I have to admit its not as boring as I remembered. But its still not a good film. Its too fucked up to really make you enjoy unless you're into that sort of thing.
