The Human Centipede (First Sequence): I had some misgivings about this movie when I walked in. People were saying: “Why are you here?” Having sat through about an hour of it, I still cannot answer that question. I want that hour of my life back. To say this is a horror flick, it’s not. It’s a HORRIBLE flick. It is badly acted, it is badly scripted. It is laughably bad. This is a Dutch film set in Germany with two American girls who can’t act. It is filmed by Tom Six, who should probably be called Tom Point-Six. I mean, it’s just awful. The idea is that somehow this crazed scientist is going to make a human centipede and the way he does it is by severing the ligaments of several humans so everyone is on their knees and then we’re going to attach three human beings to one another. Their mouth to somebody else’s — yeah you got it — so that you only need one alimentary canal and they’re all connected and basically they crawl along. Does this sound appealing to you? Well then you go see this but don’t tell me. I tried to warn you. This is just dumb. It’s not funny, it’s not scary, it’s just plain stupid with incredibly bad acting. An incredibly bad idea. Tacky doesn’t begin to explain it. If I could give minus stars, I would. Zero.
