The Human Centipede ll (Full Sequence)
Film Review

3 out of 5

Director Tom Six's even more controversial sequel to The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is everything the original wasn't - dark, graphic, gory - as it shifts effortlessly between a twisted study in obsessive psychosis and barbed sardonic satire. Avoiding the campy tone of the 2009 shocker, Six's Scream-style exercise posits an interesting take on horror fandom. A mentally disturbed security guard (played by Laurence R Harvey in an astonishingly repulsive performance) becomes fixated by the DVD version of the first film and decides to craft his own 12-segment creature. Without surgical expertise, he makes do with staples, duct tape and dodgy DIY skills that initiates startling sexual violence, toolbox dentistry and assorted mutilation as he indulges his wildest fantasies (though the more extreme excesses have been extensively cut by the BBFC who initially banned this movie outright). It's shot mostly in unsettling black and white and, while often unpleasant, it's really no more repugnant than the the Mr Creosote episode in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life - although those of a sensitive nature should avoid.

Plot Summary

Horror starring Laurence R Harvey as a mentally disturbed security guard who takes his love of the movie The Human Centipede way too far.
