In this controversial horror, a brilliant German surgeon (played by Dieter Laser) tires of his ground-breaking success in separating conjoined twins, and experiments with reversing the process - connecting live bodies via their gastric systems to form a "human centipede". Drugging and abducting three tourists (two American girls and one Japanese man), he sets to work in his basement operating theatre and then attempts to train his twisted creation. Despite its stomach-churning premise, the film is relatively light on gore or gruesome scenes, certainly in comparison to "torture porn" franchises such as
. Director Tom Six (a pioneer of the original and more sociologically experimental Dutch version of
) shows a deft hand when cranking up the suspense, with a few stylistic nods to Hitchcock and Kubrick. Laser is genuinely chilling as the medical madman with a God complex, only occasionally descending into cartoon villainy.
Two American college students on a road trip across Europe fall into the clutches of a deranged German surgeon, who has already kidnapped a Japanese man. The insane doctor harbours a lifelong dream of stitching three human beings together to create a strange hybrid creature - and now he has the subjects to make his sick fantasy a reality. Horror, with Dieter Laser, Ashley C Williams and Ashlynn Yennie. In English, German and Japanese.
