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.

Fairly good horror movie. Not great. Deserves a much higher tomatometer score.

Love, love, love this movie!! Seriously Dieter Laser is so perfectly cast that he really makes the movie! Then to see him again in the third is EPIC!

I'm not usually a horror fan, but this one had just the right amount of everything. Bravo to the doctor!

0 Estrellas. The Human Centipede hace el esfuerzo de ser tan aterradora y tan asquerosa pero al final no lo logra; en cambio, tenemos una película increíblemente aburrida, ridícula y terrible.

Ridiculous premise but actually a reasonably decent horror film compared to some out there! It keeps its tense atmosphere and is pretty engaging. I didnt expect to be able to sit thru it, not because of gore but because i assumed it would be too ridiculous to be scary, however it did keep me gripped enough to see it thru.

THis movie is terrible. It is so fake that they do not even show the attachment process. It is also discusting.

It's something I definitely would not want to see again. A heavy load of disturbing and chilling scenes were used and whose mission to horrify someone was fulfilled peacefully. Why? Managing a proposal whose intended effect is to give disgust is as easy as making a love story but as difficult as making a great love story.
After all, the film loses credibility and simply shoots a wave of chaos inside the house of the crazy doctor whose personality is as little complex as the performance of the rest of the actors. This disorder ruined the film and the director does not give the support that a maniac so requires, that is, that the film's plot was poor and not because it was grotesque, but that it had to have a very good background.
