Violence in todays movies has gotten stale. New movies make their way to theaters yet its always the same old thing. Occasionally we get an innovative horror movie that opens new doors for the genre, but for the most part all we get are repackaged stories. One way for these new movies to separate themselves from the norm is to go for shock value. Do something that has not been thought of that will scare the shit out of the audience. The Ring was able to do that and so have a couple other movies in the past decade. One that tried but I think missed the mark would have to be The Human Centipede.
The major premise of this movie is that two women get lost while traveling in Europe and their car breaks down. They arrive at a strange house looking for help and encounter a twisted surgeon who drugs them and ultimately uses them to make a human centipede.
This movie is all about doing something totally messed up that catches peoples attention. Im thinking someone thought of connecting three people ass to mouth and then decided to build a movie around that one concept. I mean, what else does this movie offer besides the scenes where all three of the “patients” are finally.....together.
I think a viewing of the trailer is necessary to get a good grasp of this movie and how it centers on that one scene where the human centipede is finally unveiled. What I really want to know is what else does this movie offer besides some shock value that the whole movie is building towards, because to me, this movie really brings nothing to the table.
