Nothing like I thought it would be and I really did not think it was scary just an average movie. Close up shots you could see they were not really joined together,so not very well done.
Totally disgusted by this movie very sick. Found it very difficult to watch.
Yes well.....I thought it was going to be more graphic actually, I mean dont get me wrong it was pretty sick!! Who thinks of this, why would you want make a movie about this....errr i think this is abit on the disturbing side. In germany it is legal to do many sick & horrid things to animals so this really doesnt surprise me actually
i dont rate this at all, bleh! gross movie, and lame.
Not sure how to take this movie, twisted, perverted, not sure whether to worry that somebody would think of this, let alone make a ovie about it, I think with this one it comes down to personal taste.
I can't believe some of these reviews. This movie was pretty full on, I don't know about others but this was disturbing to me, you'll find yourself thinking about it for days afterwards, that poor girl, cause u tried to escape ur the middle piece, arrrgghh. I've seen number 2 and it's definatley more gory but this movie is more sick. Who thinks of this stuff ??? Would u even want to survive if this happened to u !!! Could this happen ........ I can't remember the last movie that had me thinking so much about it days later, just that in itself is reason to watch, but don't watch if ur squeamish you won't get this out of ur head for a while !!!
lol oh my goooooood hate to be the middle chick at the end of it all
Total waste of time. Extremely bad acting. Not as grossed out as I expected, but still a very disturbing theme.
So BAD....not scary at all, Hostel was way worse than this not even worth 1 star....
A total waste of 92 minutes of my life that i'll never get back.
Pretty twisted story line but not that scary. Average
Was disappointing wasn't as gory as people said. Was lacking in acting and story line. The end was a massive let down with a wtf why now moment. Will most likely watch 2 with lower expectations.
I started watching this movie and I got to the point where I knew something was about to happen. I paused the movie, went on Wikipedia and had a quick look at the plot. At that point I decided that I did not want to see what was going to happen.
European horror movies are certainly more full on that anything they can think of in Australia or the US.
So I have not watched it all and I do not intend to. I think I need to stick to happy movies for awhile.
Extreme and sick however not bad for a low budget. I liked the fact that they add a Japanese actor and plays with the culture difference. Alright the acting is not so good and it's not really scary but those who liked gore like the old Reanimator ...might like the madness. Don't take it seriously and you will realize that the acting, the story are actually quite absurd and funny. The bad guy plays his role like a Frankestein and the old Hammer Dracula... Not sure he actually knows how to act but surprisingly
It is the reason why he looks like.out of this world. Definitely worth a watch!
This movie is so sick can imagine the mentality of the Director itself.
Not as Gory or sick as what ppl have said, Just a mad man who creates a human centipede....Why do ppl go walking through the woods when there car breaks down, walk back to where you came from..? Will watch #2 to see.
I enjoyed it, the ending was a little bit of a letdown..
I love sick and twisted movies but I found this a bit weak......didn't shock me at all. Maybe I expected too much. Could have been way better......see that line_________cross it lol
Hmmm… reviewing the Human Centipede… what do I say?
I had a lot of hesitations when watching this movie. Some friends had told me to stay away! I did my own research, read the plot, looked at some stills of the movie and decided to watch it.
The title says it all – it’s about a Human Centipede. There were a few moments where I cringed but, I was always able to look at the screen.
The characters were engaging – especially toward the end.
It was intriguing. And disturbing. But when you know how the concept came about, it’s not as to watch as what some might make it out to be.
I think more could have been done with this movie. A lot more. I will watch number 2.
B grade horror flick, lacking both in script and acting. Disappointing.
I got this movie when I heard that its sequel had been banned in australia.......THANK U FOR AUSTRALIAN CENSORSHIP! Wouldnt want to watch the sequel even if I could, particularly if the acting is as bad as this.
liked the movie alot funny how they had to eat the poo from person in front.plus the middle chick was sexy with nice junk
made my friends watch it.hope there is a sequel
It's hard to know just quite what to say about this film. Disturbing? Yes. Sickening? Yes. Scary? No. I don't find myself checking under my bed for a mad German Dr planning on connecting me to someone else's anus... Thankfully.
I watched it out of curiosity after reading and hearing all the hype surrounding it. It is definitely worthy of the controversy! Think I'll pass on the sequel though...
The fact that this film stays with you makes it an important experience, would you want to be the middle? back? or head? It seems many people considered it unrealistic, but being a Europe setting invites perceptions of euro trash fetishes to lend an air of authenticity. Also the actor that played the doctor said he wasn't going for the mad scientist angle but rather the real horror of Dr Mengele. He did it so well my partner got the feeling this was a snuff film and searched IMDB to make sure the victims had done other stuff since this film. Four stars it just falls short of perfection because it shy's away from opportunities for more gore and some of the more logistical problems are not satisfactorily explained.
This is the crappiest movie I have ever seen, or partly seen, watched the first 20 mins then skimmed the rest of it and pieced it together.... B O R I N G
Awesome movie!! couldnt take my eyes off the screen 5 STARS!!!
Worst movie ever made, this movie falls under the category: "what were they thinking?". Story - none at all, acting - way below average and the director - needs to find another day job.
Pretty lousy film all round really, no story, bad acting, lousy photography. Just a excuse for someones sick fantasy. You cannot call this entertainment its just rubbish. I like a good thriller with blood and guts, doesn't bother me at all just so long as there is a good story behind it. Not just trashy rubbish for trash sake.
Worst ever... not graphic, not controversial and quite possibly the worst acting in history. Even after Madonna.
this movie is just rubbish, do not bother
Although I've given it a 3 star I did agree with the majority of other members and thought it was quite disturbing. Disturbing as it was I couldn't stop watching it.
What the??? not sure where to even go with this
What a waste of time, a very sick movie did not enjoy this one at all.
one of the worst movies i have ever seen, i would not recommend this movie to anyone.
Casting of the crazy doctor is excellent but once you stop laughing at the ridiculous concept,there's not a lot to this movie.
this is sick and not in a good way do not wath
This is THE most disgusting, disturbing movie i have EVER seen, i watched about half an hour of it and had to leave the room...excellent choice if youre into gory 'make your stomach churn' kinds of movies, or if you want to give someone nightmares!
What a sick movie!!! Do not recommend it to anyone! What sick movie!! The only thing I liked was the two nice looking girls.
don't go there a real shocker! way off the right scale!
Loved this movie..I was gripping my partners hand all the way,everything a good thriller/horror should be, It was more about what you didn't see..the lead character was very well cast. Had to go for a walk to clear the energy after this one!
Very Sick movie, unwarrented horror .
Pretty weird movie.... bit scary at the start than just turned wrong!! If you like weird movies go for it.... apparantly there is a sequel coming out, that i will not be watching.... three stars for creativity but other than that not for me
Pretty ridiculous movie really, the idea behind it was pretty messed up did make me laugh at how strange it was but all in all wasnt a very exciting movie.
You all know what it's about and yes it is a sick concept but the execution was brilliant. Do not watch if you have a weak stomach but if you love thriller, horror, psychological movies, than watch this!!!! I thought the actors were good especiall the evil doctor Dieter Laser, he looks evil. It will make you think twice about excepting a glass of water if you go to a stranger's house to use the phone!
Awesome. You have to appreciate how sadistic Tom Six's mind really is to think of something like this. The sequel should be even more terrifying - a 12 humans centipede!
Better get your antiseptic mouth wash ready before you watch this movie! A rather sick theme and poor acting. Just one star for the fact that the director did manage to leave a permanent unpleasant impression in my memory.
This movie was recommended to me because i'm a big fan of twisted psyc movies that don't involve to much blood but still gory. The opening scenes were enough for me to judge the movie, a "disaster". The acting was very bad that it ruined the whole movie. I don't mind low budget movies but I hate low budget movies that sell the movie a cheap and this was a very cheap movie. The story could have been good but the acting, setting and direction made the screen play horrible.
I was so intrigued as I kept getting told to watch this movie. Well... What a waste of my time. Absolute rubbish and a waste of good film.
Absolutely the worst movie I have ever seen! There are no words to describe just how bad this movie is on all levels. That's definitely 90 odd minutes of my life I'll never get back. Do NOT make the same mistake.
100% Surgically correct. Funny more than horrible, I couldn't stop LAUGHING!
Too 'out there' for me. The concept is totally weird so I couldn't just relax and watch it as a made up movie. I was cringing through most of it.
It was that bad I had to run to the bowl. Not my cup of tea but others members of family stomached it.
Bum hole to mouth is something no one should see!
I ended up fast forwarding the last 50 minutes of the film, and then had to log onto youtube to watch people failing at treadmills, children hurting themselves and cats doing stupid things just to get a smile back on my face.
Sick! ...and B-Grade
If you want a movie with brilliant acting and a good solid storyline, then it probably isn't the right choice for you. On the other hand, if you want to see a movie that is original, bizarre and twisted. LOOK NO FURTHER. The Human Centipede will disturb and entertain you from start to finish. You might want to keep the mouthwash handy though, because this one will definitely leave a bad taste in your mouth!
I wouldn't recommend watching this movie, it is really disturbing, sick and just plain wrong in every sense. In addition, some of the acting particularly from the two female leads wasn't that great and got quite annoying at times. I didn't know what the story was before I watched it, and I wish now that I hadn't seen it. Don't watch unless you enjoy things that are seriously sick and twisted.
After reading all of the hype on this movie and friends of mine telling me just how awful and disturbing it was to watch I couldn't wait to watch it
The concept itself is quite interesting - it's a shame that the movie itself is so awful. What's awful about it? Well the 2 main female 'actors' do not play realistic roles at all, not their fault but just a bad script and equally bad acting. From the start it feels like a corny typical horror movie. (After all, what kind of movie opens up with the girl on the phone saying 'Hi. Yes, um, I was wondering if I could get driving directions to a nightclub called Bunker. Yes, Bunker. How exactly would I get there?). Of course their car breaks down and of course they find help 'just over the hill' which just so happens to be a crazy doctors house.
Like I said before, the concept of this movie is great - but I think if the story was a little more realistic (maybe if a family got kidnapped or something like that, instead of american tourists), if we were shown a bit more of the actual surgery and had a bit more of a description on how his plan was to work, maybe if one of them survived and lived to tell the tale? Most of the gore is hidden unfortunately!
Neither as disturbing or as twisted as I'd been lead to beleive, Human Centipede is instead just a really bad film. Bad script, bad acting and plotholes you could walk a human centipede through sideways. You spend the first ten minutes of the film getting to know two American women only to have them relegated to non-speaking roles for the rest of the story, and it goes downhill from there.
This is one of the most disturbing, original, weird movies I have ever seen. It truly made me feel ill, yet I couldn't turn it off till I saw the ending.
This is the worst film I have come across on Big Pond movies and I deeply feel none will top this train wreak. 2 tourists are stranded going to a party and are unlucky enough to find the house of the villian of this film and must fight there way out. The worst acting to date with everyone looking bored or wishing they were out having actural fun instead of waiting for their paychecks. The direction falls apart very quickly and the film feels like a childish attempt to top Salo or Cannibal holocaust in gross out factor and misses by a mile coming off more forced and childish then offensive. Oddly not much violence and whats there is tame. It doesnt even deliver in the obvious way either.A horrible ending is the fuse lit to this bomb. Def one bargin basement filler to aviod. I really hated it and usually I love horror and strong disturbing stuff but this was a sad joke.
Disturbing concept although wasn't as gory as I expected - looked like a low budget film which is probably why there wasn't too many special effects. Interesting idea. I agree with Jase - intriguing but disturbing!
I'd be curious to meet the person who wrote this story. It's more then disturbing. Lousy direction, it could have been a bit more scary rather than disgusting. Not really worth watching.
Yum! This movie has poo in mouth themes!
seriously disturbing movie. kinda made me feel ill, but at the same time intrigued. this movie is good at what it does if you like that kind of thing. seriously disturbing.
