The financiers of The Human Centipede did not discover the full nature of the film until it was complete. The film received generally mixed reviews from film critics, but it won several accolades at international film festivals. The film began a limited theatrical release in the United States on 30 April Two sequels, titled Full Sequence and Final Sequencealso written and directed by Six, were released in andrespectively.
The entire trilogy was compiled into a single film intitled Complete Sequencewhich Six described as a "movie centipede" due to each Sequence leading into its successor, while simultaneously working as a separate standalone film.
In Germany, American tourists Lindsay and Jenny are drugged and abducted detained by crazed surgeon Dr. Josef Heiter when they seek help for a flat tire. They awake in a makeshift medical ward, and witness Heiter kill a kidnapped truck driver after Heiter informs him he is "not a match".
Heiter secures a new male captive, Japanese tourist Katsuro. The surgeon explains that he is an expert at separating Siamese twinsbut dreams of making new creatures by sewing people together. He describes how he will surgically connect his three victims mouth-to- anusso that they share a single digestive systemcreating a "human centipede ". After Lindsay tries to escape, Heiter decides to make her the middle part of the centipede, the most painful position. Heiter performs the surgery, placing Katsuro at the lead.
He removes the front teeth of both women and mutilates the buttocks of Katsuro and Lindsay to provide access to the rectums, to which he grafts their mouths. He severs the ligaments of his victims' knees to prevent leg extension, forcing his victims to crawl. Heiter attempts to train his centipede as a pet, belittling Katsuro with racist insults and beating him when he becomes rebellious.
When Katsuro defecatesLindsay is forced to swallow his excrement while Heiter watches in delight. However, he becomes irritated after being kept awake by Katsuro's constant screaming and the realization that Jenny is dying from septicemia.
When detectives Kranz and Voller visit the house to investigate the disappearance of the tourists, Heiter plans to replace Jenny with them, creating a four-human centipede, and gives them spiked drinks.
The detectives become suspicious and obtain a search warrant for his home. When the detectives leave, Katsuro attacks Heiter and the victims attempt to escape.
Katsuro tells Heiter that he deserves his fate because he had treated his family poorly, and commits suicide by slitting his throat with a glass shard. The detectives return and conduct searches while Heiter hides.
Kranz finds the ward along with Heiter's victims. Voller begins to feel ill from the drugging, and Heiter stabs him with a scalpel pulled from his leg during Katsuro's attack; he shoots Kranz with Voller's sidearm. Kranz shoots Heiter in the head before dying. and Lindsay hold hands as Jenny dies. Lindsay sobs as she is left trapped between her deceased fellow captives.
Six has stated that The Human Centipede is, to an extent, a reflection on fascism. Dieter Laserwho played the antagonist Dr Heiter, said during the promotion of the film that he felt the guilt of Nazi actions during the war had haunted ordinary Germans for generations, and that as a German whose father participated in the war, he often felt "like a child whose father is in jail for murder.
Six placed a Japanese male at the front of the centipede to create a language barrier between the doctor and the centipede. Throughout the film the characters with the exception of Heiter who for the most part speaks to the centipede in English speak in their native languages only subtitled for the viewer into English where necessary.
Katsuro, as the front part of the centipede, can only speak Japanese and therefore cannot speak with either the doctor or Jenny and Lindsay. Secondly, Katsuro's position in the centipede sets up the opportunity for the doctor and the male victim of the centipede to fight toward the climax of the film.
While seeking Is the human centipede 2 a true story yahoo dating for the film, Six pitched the idea of a surgeon who sewed people together. They were also shown sketches of how the centipede would be formed.
Although The Human Centipede is set in Germany, principal photography took place in the Netherlands due to the neighboring countries' similar landscapes. The property was in a residential area and not surrounded by woodland as it appears in the film, but by other houses.
This meant the filmmakers had some difficulty ensuring that the other houses did not appear in shot. Laser remained in character as Heiter throughout the filming process, often shouting at the rest of the cast on set,  and wherever possible staying away from the other actors and crew between scenes to preserve a level of separation. For example, when Heiter is explaining his procedure to his victims, Katsuro's dialogue was improvised, which pleased Laser.
The incident contributed to the tension and anger throughout the scene they were filming, in which Heiter sits at his dining table eating while the centipede eats dog food from the floor alongside him.
The Nazi influence behind Heiter led to the use of classical music when the doctor is "training" his centipede. The music was deliberately played at low quality to simulate the music coming from a loudspeaker, in much the same way as music was sometimes played in Nazi concentration camps. For example, the sound of a nose being broken was made by snapping bones within cuts of raw meat. The Human Centipede contains relatively few gory images; little of the surgical procedure is depicted directly,  no excrement is shown on screen,  and according to Kim Newman in Empireit is "never quite as outrageous as it threatens to be.
When Heiter is operating on his victims, Jenny's teeth were digitally removed in post-production. Heiter's "three dog" was created by photoshopping an image of three Rottweilers to create an image of dogs joined together.
For example, at the end of the film when Lindsay is left between the dead bodies of Jenny and Katsuro, their skin tones were lightened to further emphasise that they were dead and Lindsay was still alive. The rain when Jenny and Lindsay's car breaks down was added digitally in post-production. Roger Ebertwriting in the Chicago Sun-Timesstated that he felt the film had been "deliberately intended to inspire incredulity, nausea and hopefully outrage. However, Cox was unable to trace any article making this claim.
To Six's amusement, Spanish audiences often found the film funny, and laughed throughout screenings. The Human Centipede received mixed reviews.
Giving the film three stars out of five, Empire writer Kim Newman stated that "underneath an extremely repulsive concept, this is a relatively conventional horror movie.
Sukhdev Sandhu of The Daily Telegraph was generally negative about the film, stating, " The Human Centipede has its moments, but they're largely obscured by umpteen holes in the plot as well as by reams of exposition,"  and that it was "an ultimately underwhelming affair that's neither sick or repellent enough to garner the cult status it so craves. This time, I refuse to do it.
The star rating system is unsuited to this film. Is the movie good? It is what it is and occupies a world where the stars don't shine. Critics and a doctor have dismissed Six's claim that the film was " percent medically accurate" as "ludicrous"  Is the human centipede 2 a true story yahoo dating "rubbish". Martin compared Six's claims to those of Kroger Babb and William Castlewho had also made "grand promises" about what they were putting on screen, in a bid to lure audiences.
When Tom Six began creating the Human Centipede sequels, he envisioned a trilogy that works as a "movie Is the human centipede 2 a true story yahoo dating. Each sequel opens with the ending of the previous film, as the events of that film influence said sequel.
Although every film works as a standalone movie, they can all be connected to form a single 4. Shooting on a similar budget to the first film,  Six stated the sequel would be a much more graphic, disturbing and even "shittier" film; First Sequence being " My Little Pony compared with part two.
The plot of Full Sequence involves a man who, after becoming sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of First Sequencedecides to create his own human centipede. However, upon submitting the film to the BBFC for classification, the film was rejected due to content that was "sexually violent and potentially obscene". To achieve the 18 rating, thirty-two cuts were made from the film, removing two minutes and thirty-seven seconds from the original version.
The third and final film in the trilogy, The Human Centipede 3 Final Sequencereceived a limited theatrical release on 22 May The film features the largest human centipede in the series, composed of five hundred victims,  as Six says, "each film is a reaction to the other.
And the film got so big, it was a pop culture phenomenon, and people wanted more: And what I did, I used the idea and almost made a parody on the human centipede films itself. Harvey returned in starring, albeit different, roles. The Movie Centipede was released, running a total of minutes. A number of parodies of the film have been made.
