HUMAN CENTIPEDE trailer slithers its way online

No. It's not an Asian horror flick. For some reason, a lot of people assumed this film was going to be a gore-porn, Miike-esque, splatter art flick from the Orient judging from the title alone. When I saw the film back in September at Fantastic Fest, I thought the same thing! It just has that kind of title doesn't it?

Well, it's really the polar opposite of that kind of cinematic experience, truth be told. This new trailer for HUMAN CENTIPEDE wants to make sure you understand what you're in for-- a bizarre experiment that connects three humans together in a most inhumane way--and it's entirely medically accurate one should know.

The unexpected thing about this film are the performances which are raw, emotional, and sickly tragic. The film could also serve as a kind of metaphor for the current state of horror but I don't think that's what director Tom Six had in mind when making this film. I remember at the Q&A, Six was asked what his ideal "celebrity" human centipede would be...I can tell you that Jennifer Lopez was involved.

This is a disturbing film but that's because the performances make you really imagine what it would be like to be in this kind of demented, demeaning and soul-crushing situation. HUMAN CENTIPEDE will surprise you. Guaranteed.
