I'm sure you know what the human centipede is, but if you don't here's the low down. Basically, two really dumb college girls go to a party and get lost. Their tire blows, and they are stranded in the creepy woods. Because these girls are really dumb, they decide to get out of their car, walk around for over an hour alone looking for service, and then go into a stranger's home. Of course, this stranger is a deranged scientist. He worked separating conjoined twins in his hey day, but now he is seriously messed up. He drugs the girls, and then cuffs them to a hospital bed in his basement. In the basement there is another victim. The doctor tells them of his "genius" plan, to conjoin the three of them and make a human centipede. The mouth will be attached to the anus in order for them to eat. Creepy as hell, correct?
What really made this movie not for me was...everything? The two girl characters were dumb as shit; who goes into a strangers home and thinks nothing of it? The acting was also really bad. I know that this is just a low budget horror flick and acting well isn't necessarily on the forefront, but still. The script was one of the reasons nothing worked for me as well. Some of the lines didn't fit, and there were multiple instances where I was taken out of the story because of it.
The ending was just weird? The head of the centipede's action were so strange out of nowhere. I don't understand why he did what he did. It just made things harder for the remaining centipede. I did appreciate how the ending wasn't necessarily happy or bad, it just existed. That part was at least realistic, or as realistic as it could be.
While I can't say I liked The Human Centipede (at all) it was an experience. Do I regret watching it? Maybe. Can I undo it? Nope. So I watched the movie, and I'm glad that I checked that off my non-existing to do list.
Do you like the Human Centipede? What is your favorite horror movie?
