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

A sexually disturbed loner becomes fascinated by the movie The Human Centipede, and develops sadistic fantasies about the film's twisted experiment to surgically attach living people to each other. He kidnaps 12 victims to make his own human centipede, but lacking surgical training, is forced to use more crude methods. Horror sequel, with Laurence R Harvey and Ashlynn Yennie.
