In stark contrast to the original's cool, clinical horror, Martin's cack-handed creation of the arse-to-mouth creature is played for cheap, sick slapstick laughs.

All Six is going for, with the generous application of both hardware supplies to the skin and feces to the camera, is a tired commentary on his shallow talents: They're excremental.

The film is reprehensible, dismaying, ugly, artless and an affront to any notion, however remote, of human decency.

Human Centipede 1 allowed for some lowball entertainment. Human Centipede 2 offers only sadism. Here's the best I can say about Tom Six: The man has managed to outdo himself, for better or for worse.

I'm striving to maintain a neutral tone here because I think that's the best way to deflate this silly, clever, disgusting and ultimately meaningless project to a reasonable scale.

Dismal, nauseating and yet bizarrely artful...

'The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)'' is sick, disgusting and vile. It's also demonically funny, stylish and ingenious.

Six has in essence backed himself into a rhetorical corner, leaving as perhaps the only option for his next stunt something in which the filmmaker Tom Six winds up with his mouth surgically attached to his own anus.

The film is in black-and-white so the gore doesn't spray quite as colorfully. But you'll still puke up a storm.

A lurid, splattery wallow in grime, blood and excrement.

The first Human Centipede had audacity on its side. Human Centipede II has only excess.

The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) could be the sickest B movie ever made. But that's why you may feel gripped by the horror of what you're seeing and the terror of what's coming.

This is surely hell, as a godless Dante or Bosch might paint it.

Six manages to find the one element that could have made his idea even more noxious, a strong whiff of pretension...

Once Six's conceptual project becomes clear, his escalating audience-mocking torture is increasingly pointless.

It's hard to tell whether [Six] made "The Human Centipede 2" to titillate his audience or to mock it. And after a while, it is hard to care.

The movie is a reductio ad absurdum, a sick joke taken to extremes, beginning with a goof on the notion that horror movies inspire copycats and ending with a test to determine whether some people will watch anything.

Whatever gothic originality the first Human Centipede possessed is altogether lacking in this sorry follow-up.

More boring than stomach-churning, the film nevertheless contains scattered scenes and sequences so far beyond the tolerance of the squeamish that it can't be overstated.

It's everything that there was to loathe before and then some.

Like the original, the most shocking aspect comes from the revelation that Six can actually tell a story.
