Tom Six should change his name to Tom Sicks. In 2009 at Fantastic Fest, when we played his third feature, THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE, it garnered a lot of buzz because, well, um, it's a movie about a mad, mad doctor who sews three people together, ass-to-mouth. Shortly after, many critics popped off claiming the film wasn't gross enough. Well, here we are, two years later with his follow up, the much gross-ticipated sequel, THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE II (FULL SEQUENCE). The film's world premiere happened just a few weeks ago at Fantastic Fest and critics do agree, the film has met all gross expectations.
The film follows a man who just wants to connect with people. Wait, no that's not right, the film follows a man who just wants to connect people...ass-to-mouth. This time the film has gone meta on us and our villain has become obsessed with the first movie, THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE, and wants to create the experiment that Dr. Heiter did in the movie, but with 12 people and in real life. From the man himself, Tim League: "Brace yourself, America, because we will be showing the twisted vision of the Netherlands’ most notorious filmmaker, and he’s gone all “next level” on this shit. Consider yourself warned."
Every disgusting thing you feared would be in THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE is now onscreen in THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE II, and director Tom Six is disgusted at you for wanting it. - Devin Faraci, Badass Digest
Six's flick is an over-the-top and in-your-face splatterfest that spends an hour and half making one bold statement: Centipede 2 isn't real life; it's just a movie. -Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting
“The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)” Will Satisfy Your Gruesome Expectations. - Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
