Where the Hell do you begin to review a film like this, and is it at all possible to actually recommend it? Just watching it makes people call you names like “sick bastard” and “what’s wrong with you, why do you want to watch something like that?” Well, actually, I am a horror fan and usually the main point in horror is to upset the viewer in one way or another, hence the name horror. Whether you get scared, upset, disturbed or totally grossed out, horror is intended to shock, but the question is just how far can it go, and does filming something in black and white really make it arty and less sadistic? Hell no, Six has openly stated he wanted to give the ‘fans’ what they want after complaints that The Human Centipede: First Sequence was a little, shall we say, tame?

Having watched the sequel or whatever you want to call this second film then I believe Tom Six heard the despair from hardcore horror fans and thought “if you want to be shocked and see arse to mouth then this time I am going all the way” , and I am telling you now, The Human Centipede 2 is everything the original was not. This is a proper horror film, lacking any sense of humour and is ugly from beginning to the very end. In fact I go as far and say this is the most ugliest horror film I have ever seen, from the lack of humanity from the characters, to the lack of imagination in the horror scenes that seem to on and on. After the credits rolled I can not imagine anyone liking this film. Yes they may watch it and like me think “why the fuss?”, but the unpleasant taste you get in your mouth is nothing but bitter!
