The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015)



Critic Consensus: Human Centipede fans may find enough extreme body horror in the third installment to satisfy, but filmgoers of every other persuasion are strongly advised to stay far, far away from Final Sequence.

About halfway through the film, I realized I would be way more interested in a film about the making of Human Centipede 3 than I was in Human Centipede 3. But I don't want to give Six any ideas.

You get what you pay for with this last sequel: a cynical, and consistently unpleasant film with creators who try very, very hard to push as many of your buttons as they can.

So much effort; so little entertainment.

If you hate movies, and you find sexual assault funny, "The Human Centipede III: Final Sequence" should meet your needs.

Easily the front-runner for the year's most inept and revolting movie ...

The direction is bad, the acting is worse, and it's lit to mimic the soap-opera effect on a poorly calibrated HDTV.

Audience Reviews for The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)

Tom Six has no idea what structure, pacing or taste is, and he clearly wanted to make the vilest piece of garbage ever - which it is safe to say he accomplished -, although it would have been cheaper and more effective for him to look for therapy instead. (Zero stars)

Sometimes as a critic I seek out the worst of the worst so you don't have to, America. And you really owe me big time for sitting through all 100 torturous minutes of the regretful-in-every-aspect horror... "comedy," Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence. I'll confess that horror is a genre I've grown to enjoy and I genuinely liked the first Centipede film, finding its premise near ingenious and that writer/director Tom Six developed his horror grotesquerie in a way that turned it into an accessible survival thriller with some gonzo edges. The sequel was pretty repulsive and the third film, with the hopeful promise of being the "final sequence," is even worse. This is a horrifying endurance test not unlike Tom Green's abysmal lone directorial affront, Freddy Got Fingered. It is that bad. Scenes just seem to go on and on and exist for no purpose. It's like Dieter Laser was just told to do whatever he wanted as long as he yelled as loud as he could and based his performance after the Looney Tunes cast. It's cheap vulgarity masquerading as edgy provocation; it's transparently lazy and insufferable. It's not funny no matter how weird or loud or garish or bloody or dumb it gets. The premise is basically an insane prison warden (Laser) is going to create his own human centipede, the biggest ever, linking over 100 inmates. Ignoring the escalation of all the Centipede sequels, it's a facile plot device and it doesn't even happen until the very end. Until that awful reveal, you will have to endure, no a better word is survive, extended "comedy" bits like Laser sticking his tongue out and roaring in orgasm while his secretary (Bree Olsen) is forced to felate him while others are in the room. The movie is trying so hard to be shocking and irreverent that you can see all the pained efforts. It's tedious and boring. Human Centipede 3 is 100 minutes of pathetic flop sweat that could more or less end with the throwaway punchline, "The Aristocrats!" Nate's Grade: F

[Zero Stars]- I was a supporter of the artfully grotesque first two chapters, but Tom Six tragically botches the final installment in his body-mutilation trilogy. Continuing farther down the rabbit hole of meta "humor", the excruciating Human Centipede III is the absolute doldrums of the horror movie season. Writer-director Six obviously aggrandizes himself as a genius despite his "poop fetish" since he appears as himself to concoct a multi-hundred person centipede to curtail inmate-on-inmate violence at the prison. Dieter Laser barks and howls through the entire film incoherently and it's a humiliating exhibition of an actor untethered without a safety net. Most of his dialogue is unintelligible but it doesn't matter since it's mostly vile. Porn star Bree Olson is Bill Boss' (Laser) secretary who is objectified and sexually molested constantly. The agenda of her window-dressing role is plainly misogynistic. Suddenly, the putridly meritorious virtuosity that Six brought to the previous films has vanished and we're left with a repulsively dusky-brown filter and low production values. Eric Roberts slums as the governor who is appalled at the mistreatment of the prisoners. For pure shock value which elicits zero laughs, Boss cannibalizes the testicles of one prisoner and gnashes on dried clitorises as an afternoon snack. The film ceases with a nihilistic ruler-frolicking-atop-his-throne ending and it is frustrating to not be gratified with Boss's comeuppance via a penitentiary uprising. Suffice it to say, Human Centipede III is the worst of the series and quite possibly one of the most abominable of the decade.
