The Human Centipede 2: Movie Review (No Spoilers)

The Scarlet Numbers 8.19.12

Hello everyone, I just finished The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence and surprisingly I’m shocked how great and BETTER this movie is from its predecessor.  Who would have thought this movie would have ever had a sequel?  I won’t give away any spoilers, but if you’ve seen the first movie the answer to my previous question is: No one.

No one saw this one coming.

This movie is easily a 10/10.  It has everything a horror movie needs.  A gruesome bad guy, lots of hot naked and crying women, a great plot, and lot and lot and lots of gore…

“Noo!!!!”

If you’re ready for complete sickening scenes that will make you squeal and make you want to look away from the screen before you puke…this movie is for you.  So don’t forget your puke bucket before you start watching because trust me, you’re going to need it.

He’s fat. He never talks.  He’s retarded.  And he’s obsessed with The Human Centipede.  And crow bars. And guns.  And did I mention the Human Centipede? We all know it’s very uncommon to have a sequel that is better than the original.  It seems time and time again we are let down by these movies.  This is not the case in The Human Centipede 2.  This movie delivers and given a choice to compare the two, I’d say the sequel is hands down a better movie.

You can’t even compare the two movies. This movie looks like  Alfred Hitchcock meets the Twilight Zone meets SAW.

Surprisingly enough, it’s not necassary to see the first film before this one.  There aren’t any plot devices that are critical or dependant on the viewer to already know before watching.  All you really need to know is that in this movie the first movie was “a work of fiction.”  I think this is a great approach for this sequel due to how absurd the first movie was.  Most people would just assume that both of these movies are about the same thing, but the two movies are so different is so many ways.

The Human Centipede 2 stands alone with a completely different plot and look.  The entire film is black and white which perfectly adds to the realism and creepiness to the film.  There is only one of the same actors from the origional film, but in this movie she plays herself rather than the character she played in “The Human Centipede.”  He lures her to a “movie set” where Quentin Tarrintino is supposed to be filming the sequal to “Human Centipede.” However, when she gets there, you guessed it….no Tarrintino…no cameras…..just….well…..Human Centipede stuff.

Let’s talk for a minute about the main character and what makes him so creepy.  In the first movie, the villain was a brilliant neurosurgeon who indulged in bizzarre experiments with unwilling people.  This movie however doesn’t have that brilliant scientist.  He’s dumb as a rock and he works as a security guard who sits in a room watching multiple screens of video camera that monitor parking lots.  During the downtime in his job he sits and watches “The Human Centipede” over and over and takes notes.  Once the movie is over, he watches it again, he’s literally obsessed with this horror movie.

Will this fat retarded man succesfully create a 12 person centipede?  You’ll have to watch the movie to see how successful he will be. Keep in mind, he’s no doctor.  He’s retarded and this is what makes the movie twice as creepy.  In the first movie the doctor knew what he was doing.  In this movie the antagonist is clueless.  This guy isn’t a brilliant nerosurgeon and his low intelligence can’t differentiate fact from fiction, so he actually thinks that he can perform the same fictional experiments that occur in the first film.  This takes the film for a wild creepy and slightly humorous ride as we watch the retard kill and kill again.

If you’ve seen the movie, post a comment and let me know what you thought of it. Were you as impressed as me?  Personally, I think this is one of the best horror movies I’ve seen in a long time and I’m glad that I took the time to finally watch it.  I would have NEVER imagined this movie would be as good at the first and to my surprise, it was better.  Waaaay better.

Thanks for reading!  Repost! Repost !

    When I saw the first one, I couldn’t get it out of my head for days. I kept telling everyone about it and they didn’t get how disgusting it was, but brilliant at the same time. I’ve heard only good things about the second one, now I just have to get the courage to watch it, and talk my boyfriend into watching it with me.

    Am I the only person who though the second movie was worse?
    In the second sequence there is literally not a single connecting moment with any of the characters. Although even in the first little detail was given about the victims, you at least began to get inside the head of the Doctor and see how dark he really is. You also got a real sense of fear from the actors.
    In the second film, there is practically no dialog and no way to connect with either the victims or their kidnapper.
    What worries me is why people might think it is better, I can only assume that in modern society people would rather see lots of screaming naked women and extreme gore than to have a story that actually makes sense.
    Because to anyone who actually looks at it from a reasonable point of view, those are the only things added to the film, more gore, more screams and more nudity. And worse, in adding these features they scrapped so many more that made the first one amazing.
    Worst of all, in this f****ed up world, it seems that most people DO just want more gore and nudity rather than a good movie.
