Ten Reasons Why I Can’t Fucking Wait For Human Centipede II
Stay classy, stay scared
First of all, you’ve seen the first movie. Right? If not, at least watch the trailer HERE, then continue reading. With all the hype regarding the second film in Tom Six’s Dutch horror trilogy, I hope it can keep up. Here are several of my top reasons to love the first movie and be waiting with bated breath for “Full Sequence,” which is due to come out in (hopefully) the next several months here in US.
1 ) The director’s (Tom Six’s) inspiration for the triology: “I saw a child molester on television and I said, ‘They should stitch this guy with his mouth to the ass of a very fat truck driver. It would be a really good punishment for him.’ Then I thought, ‘That’s a cool idea for a film.’”
2 ) Tom Six, shortly after releasing the first movie in the series, promised that this second installment would make the first movie of the series look like “My Little Pony.” And we all know how much I love my ponies.
3 ) On June 6th 2011 the BBFC (UK certification board) refused to grant this movie a certificate, effectively banning the movie from being shown in cinemas or DVD in the UK.
4 ) The BBFC then leaks critical spoilers to the upcoming sequel: “This new work, The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film and who imagines putting the ‘centipede’ idea into practice. Examples of… (the sexual arousal by torture) include a scene early in the film in which (the central character) masturbates whilst he watches a DVD of the original Human Centipede film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis…. and a sequence later in the film in which he becomes aroused at the sight of the members of the ‘centipede’ being forced to defecate into one another’s mouths, culminating in a sight of the man wrapping barbed wire around his penis and raping the woman at the rear of the ‘centipede.’”
5 ) Tom Six’s reaction to said spoilers and the banning of his latest movie: “Thank you BBFC for putting spoilers of my movie on your website and thank you for banning my film in this exceptional way. Apparently I made a horrific horror-film, but shouldn’t a good horror film be horrific? My dear people it is a fucking MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not. If people can’t handle or like my movies they just don’t watch them. If people like my movies they have to be able to see it any time, anywhere also in the world.”
6 ) At Fangoria Weekend of Horror 2010, the three folks who ended up splitting the $1000 prize for best costume were – you guessed it – the human centipede, in the flesh.
7 ) I-Mockery made an 8-bit video game version, based on the first movie, playing off Atari’s 1980 game entitled Centipede, featuring multiple people sewn together and trying to escape your (the player’s) evil (surgical?) ray of death.
8 ) We have Human Centipede to thank for the best cat toy ever. Because we all know that cats are inherently evil.
9 )The Human Centipede Rap. “Six arms, six legs, gonna make a human centipede…:
10 ) In “Full Sequence,” rumor has it that instead of three people making up the human centipede, there are TWELVE.
Oh, wait, and THIS:
Like I said, can’t fuckin’ wait.
