Never as graphic as one would expect or as inventive as one would hope, there's very little here worth recommending, even to the morbidly curious.

Six seems, at some point, to have said to himself, It might be theoretically possible to sew a mouth to an anus and sustain life. Someone should dramatize that, and then he did.

Deep down it's just more torture porn with an artistic gloss...

The film deserves some points for being sickening and over the top.

The problem is that this slick piece of schlock is dull, risible and, ultimately, boring.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is one of those movies that's much more entertaining to talk about than it is to actually experience.
August 26, 2010
It's an undeniably revolting concept, but most of the actual gore would be matched by your average pre-watershed medical shock doc.

[The sequel] is already in the can. Which is where many of us will be, seeking relief for emetically affected stomachs.

David Cronenberg this ain't.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take three human beings and sew them all together via their digestive tracts? Wonder no longer!

Although it's stomach-churning at times, it's never really scary.

However rank the idea might be, the execution'll barely make you flinch.

Anyone expecting fountains of gore and scatological filth will be surprised at how much the film doesn't show.

[M]ight as well be compiled from Nazi footage of human medical experiments, for all its casualness...

This is less a movie than it is the film equivalent of being dared to eat haggis.
June 14, 2010
It's not a film I can recommend except to those who fully know what they're getting themselves into, but it's also effective and professional enough that it can't be immediately dismissed.

This horror show from Dutch director Tom Six will be heaven for devotees of four-star torture porn and zero-star hell for everyone else.
May 13, 2010
A film that, in bare description, sounds like the greatest outrage ever put to screen, but ends up being fairly tedious when watched.
May 11, 2010
This is not entertainment. This is torture.
May 7, 2010
It's far from a complete disaster but more of an incomplete experience, unless you just looking to see something totally gross.
