Tom Six, the man who brought us both The Human Centipede: First Sequence, and The Human Centipede II: Full Sequence, is hard at work on his controversial third and final (??) film in the series, The Human Centipede III: Final Sequence.
It has been almost a year since EW shared the first image from the film (above) and we have heard nothing since, until now…
Six has posted the below image from inside the prison the third film is set in, the place where an allegedly 500 PERSON centipede will be created, using inmates from the prison. It’s such an ambitious idea, and I won’t believe until I see it for myself.
However, you can check out the latest image below, and we can all live in hope a trailer is on the way soon. Fingers crossed also that this third film doesn’t get such a hard time getting past the BBFC as the previous film did, but sadly I doubt that very much.

In March last year we reported on an interview Six had with EW where he teased quite a bit about the new film:
“THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross,” Six explains via email, “But it will be the most controversial one politically-wise. It will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical of the three. Parts 1 and 2 have a very European feel. Part 3 is very American with the highest budget, a big movie score, widescreen, and an XXL human centipede. It’s set in an American maximum security prison in the middle of the desert. Plot-wise I won’t share details yet but if you let your imagination run wild you might get ideas.”
Eric Roberts, Robert LaSardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Bree Olson, Tom Six, Dieter Laser, and Laurence R. Harvey will all be appearing in the film.
When speaking of Roberts’ involvement, Six explained:
“Eric plays an a–hole governor. He is a great, underrated actor with a delicious, worn, malicious face. He was perfect for the part and a real gentleman. I love working with American actors and can’t wait to work with more famous American actors — if they have the b—s to work with me because some are scared to work with a sick European ‘horror’ film maker. I make ‘horrific’ movies, that’s true — but I don’t consider them as standard horror films. I think the genre with mostly masked killers or creepy ghosts on a killing spree is pretty boring and stupid.”
The villain of the first film, Dieter Laser, and the nut job from the sequel, Laurence R. Harvey, will both be returning for the sequel, but in slightly different roles, as Six explained:
“Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey play very different characters that will put Dr. Heiter and Martin in the shade,” says the director. “They are both brilliant actors with their own style. Laurence played a mute in Part 2; now he is a smart guy with a whole lot of dialog. Dieter played a cold, restrained doctor in Part 1; now he is a loud, racist, sadistic a–hole. Robert Lasardo plays a very cool, daring part, and I gave ex-porn star Bree Olson her first break as a serious actress, and she does one hell of a job. I play ‘Tom Six’ in the movie, which is an Oscar nomination performance.”
Six confirmed that The Human Centipede: Final Sequence will be the last in the trilogy (or will it?): “Well, I planned it to be a trilogy,” he says. “Three movies that can be literally connected (like a human centipede) and form one 4.5 hour movie. But never say never.”
He also confirmed that Full Sequence will definitely have a 500-man centipede, and explained how this was possible: “By having a lot of brave American extras and doing it the megalomanic way like they did inSpartacus,” Six says. “F— CGI-created things.”
