What do you do when you've already made the supposed "sickest movie of all time"? You get even sicker, apparently.
The original "Human Centipede" puzzled even longtime film critic Roger Ebert. "I am required to award stars to films I review," he wrote. "This time, I refuse to do it. ... Is the movie good? Is it bad? Does it matter? It is what it is and occupies a world where the stars don't shine."
The 2010 horror film, about a mad scientist who sews three people together in perhaps the most disturbing way possible, has already become a legendary punchline whenever gross movies are discussed. Cat toys and necklaces were based on its creepy plot, "South Park" riffed it in an episode, and some theater nerds even staged a musical version.
More people have probably heard of the movie's title than will ever actually see it, and for good reason. "This nasty stuff plays like a cross between 'Saw,' 'Naked Lunch' and 'Bride of the Monster,'" J.R. Jones wrote in the Chicago Reader.
Filmmaker Tom Six proudly referred to the original film as the "sickest movie of all time." After its release, Six bragged that he was working on a sequel that would make the original film "look like My Little Pony" in comparison.
And so he has.
The new film, "The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence," has its world premiere Sept. 22 at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, coming to additional theaters on Oct. 7.
The web has plot details for those who must know, but all we'll say here is that the centipede involves 12 people, not the original three. We suspect all the My Little Pony film festivals in the world won't help cleanse your brain if you choose to see it.
