Shawn started a set of chats about Exploitation Cinema and controversial movies. You can find them on our YouTube Channel, which you should all subscribe to because we will donate any monetization to a good cause, which is actually us.
This week’s discussion is the family favourite, The Human Centipede (2009). The basic story is:
“A mad scientist kidnaps and mutilates a trio of tourists in order to reassemble them into a human centipede, created by stitching their mouths to each others’ rectums.”
If you love movies, you must have heard of this. It is one of the most controversial movies ever made and even generated two sequels, which were just as bad and also discussed here.
How did someone come up with this idea? And how did they get it made? The movie itself is a good production, well shot and directed with good acting. Well, as good as acting can be while your mouth is strapped up to someone else’s ass, all of the cast are good and, unfortunately, believable.
Have you seen The Human Centipede? Is it a Christmas family favourite for you? Or is it something you wouldn’t watch even if your life depended on it?
