Two American college girls become the subjects of a sadistic medical experiment while on a road trip across Europe. Invited to a party by a handsome waiter, Jenny and Lindsay are en route to the festivities when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Desperate, they decide to seek help on foot, eventually coming across the home of a retired surgeon named Dr. Heiter (Dieter Laser). Dr. Heiter is internationally renowned for his work on separating conjoined twins, but these days he’s using his surgical skills for something entirely different. His goal is to create a human centipede by removing his patient’s kneecaps, and sewing them together, mouth-to-anus. The only thing preventing Dr. Heiter from carrying out his experiment is a lack of human subjects. When Jenny and Lindsay arrive on his doorstep, Dr. Heiter enthusiastically begins prepping for surgery.
The only complaint I really had, with this movie, was the ending. Other than that, I found this movie decent enough to watch. To some viewers, it might be sick, but it was kind of funny, to me.
Before I decided to watch this movie, I read a lot of complaints from reviews I found online. Most people didn’t like it, because there was no real storyline. I thought the storyline was fine, because all you are doing is watching a doctor, who was fascinated by experimenting with animals and now humans. He enjoyed playing God, basically.
The only downfall, that I noticed with the storyline, was it didn’t have anything exciting in it. The most exciting part was probably the ending, or the last 15 minutes. Other than that, it went by really slow, and you knew what was going to happen, because of the title of the movie. So, there are no big surprises.
I thought all the actors and actresses played their character roles really well. I didn’t notice too many errors. Though, I did wonder why the Japanese guy decided to pick up a piece of glass, instead of using the lamp. I guess what he did was already planned out, in his mind. I would say what it was, but I rather save it for those, who haven’t seen this movie and want to see it.
If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s good enough for a one-time viewing, but nothing more than that. You should also know that this really is not a horror movie, even if they labeled it as one. I just don’t want you to expect this movie to be scary or anything.
