Just returned from a screening of The Human Centipede: Full Sequence, and WOW… what a disgusting display of grotesque imagery and squeamishly irritating sound effects. It’s definitely the sideshow that director Tom Six wanted. It isn’t “cinema.” It’s more like a freak-show; a one-note experience that should work well for those desiring to see it for its novelty – and that’s being kind.
For those who dare, or those wanting nothing beyond gore, you can see it this Friday, Oct 14, and Saturday, Oct 15 at the midnight hour at The Coolidge. Click here for tickets.
Regarding Mr. Six’s personal philo$ophy and the film’s ban in Britain, I suggest reading Dave Itzkoff’s interview in The New York Times.
