#131. The Human Centipede

The Human CentipedeBetter than what you heard, way better than what you expect. The Human Centipede is so much fun I am fighting my urge to dive head first into an ocean of hyperbole. A simple premise escalated by an ingenious twist and the balls to not wink at the audience, director Tom Six does the unthinkable by surgically constructing a handful of bloody tendons and clever ideas into one of my favorite films of 2010. While the two female leads leave something to be desired (like talent), the head of the centipede played by Akihiro Kitamura takes the lead (uh thank you) and thankfully saves what could have been a debilitating acting handicap. Of course all praise must be given to the mad scientist himself Dieter Laser, who effortlessly steals the entire film, gracefully weaving horror nonsense into reasonable make-believe. I fear hipster backlash has already turned this cult loner into a mainstream poser, but I urge any and all to give it a try with an open mind. If you have seen The Human Centipede let me know what you thought. Is my hyperbole warranted or am I just a sucker for anything horror?

What an odd movie, but I really enjoyed watching it. Dieter Laser was awesome, I just sat back with a shocked expression for most of it.
