Nearly a year since it premiered at FrightFest, Tom Six's bizarre biological horror The Human Centipede [First Sequence] will crawl its way on to UK screens on August 20th. Probably one of the most talked about movies of 2010 it has been described as everything from a post-Cronenberg body-horror to the most horrific film ever made. To add to that the makers claim that it is 100% medically accurate!
Two pretty American girls on a road trip across Europe end up alone in the woods at night when their car breaks down in rural Germany. As they search for help they find an isolated house. Offering to call them a taxi, the house's owner Dr. Heiter, a retired surgeon, invites the girls inside with the promise of a drink and dry place to wait until help arrives. However they realise that there is something not quite right about the formidable Dr. Heiter...As their demented host explains his twisted vision, the two girls discover that they are soon to become a lot closer to each other than they ever wanted to be. Heiter’s plan is to connect the two girls with a third person, a hapless Japanese tourist, to each other via their gastric systems in a daring bid to be the first person to create a Siamese triplet - bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy "The Human Centipede!!!".
Dark, sinister but with a large vein of surreal humour, The Human Centipede [First Sequence] is not for the faint-hearted!
