I’ve always supported Tom Six’s Human Centipede films, understanding exactly what his intent behind the shock value was. And because the first two films carried real social commentary to go along with a unique filmmaking style, they’re both winners in my book. But with Human Centipede 3 it started to feel as if Six was […]

The series' conclusion commits the greatest offense of all: being boring.
The Human Centipede 3 reviews are in and…they're bad. In fact, they are, as Jack MacFarlane on Will & Grace might say, Mariah-Carey-in-Glitter bad.

In case you were expecting director Tom Six’s sicko human-anus-to-mouth-stitching horror saga to suddenly become better, or at least tolerable, by its third installment, let me just shatter your dreams right now.

Who would have imagined back in 2009 that six years later people would be watching and discussing a third "Human Centipede" movie? Besides the series' writer and director Tom Six, of course. Most viewers would have found it unbelievable that such an absurd premise could be stretched into a viable indie film franchise. Show More Summary
Note: Roger Ebert didn't give "Human Centipede (First Sequence)" a star rating because "The star rating system is unsuited to this film." Not much has changed, unfortunately. "Human Centipede 3" is gross, though that's not an inherently commendable or noteworthy quality given the previous two "Human Centipede" films. Show More Summary
The director of the Human Centipede series of films, wherein humans are surgically attached ass-to-mouth to—sigh, you know—is "very proud" of his work: "art should do something to people."

When I posted the trailer for The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) earlier this month, I jokingly wrote in the headline that the trailer “proposes a solution to prison overcrowding.” It turns out that maybe that’s not a joke—DutchShow More Summary
In the late ’00s, at the height of horror’s lazy regress into found-footage knockoffs, lazy torture porn, and teen-slasher remakes, Dutch writer-director-provocateur Tom Six and his co-producer wife Ilona decided that the genre must die so that he might bring it back to, frankly, disgusting life. The murder weapon? 2009's... More »
Listing the various ways in which The Human Centipede III deliberately provokes its audience by means of racial slurs, offensive stereotypes, and disgustingly detailed rape scenes only plays into director Tom Six’s clear intent to troll critics, so just take it on faith that all that is there.
