. Now there's a movie that's trumps all existing worst case scenarios if you find yourself kidnapped.The Human Centipede
is a recent Dutch horror film where captive tourists are sewn together, mouth to anus. We refuse to write those two words that close to each other again, so soak it in. And as if that weren't enough torture, the maniac kidnapper first describes his Siamese poop triplet idea to them via PowerPoint.
Human Centipede was released in theaters a few months ago, but you sick bastards get another chance to see it next week, details below. To be honest, we couldn't even make it to the end of the trailer (posted after the jump) once we heard the captives' muffled cries. But a quick look around the internet shows the shock flick has some adamant fans. We found Human Centipede cat toys, tattoos, and even jewelry. Really? Yes, really. Keep reading.
human skin, Human Centipede's plot doesn't seem all that improbable. So
we have to remind our inner nine-year-olds that it's just a movie. That
guy staring at you at the bus stop is simply memorized by your dangly
earrings. He doesn't have a sewing kit in his pocket and an excrement
fetish. Still, who's the sick freak who dreamed up this horror?
The filmmaker, Tom Six, says he got the idea for the movie after he and
his friends joked that the ultimate punishment for child molesters would
be to sew their mouths onto a truck driver's asshole. The retribution
angle seems to have been replaced by plain old-fashioned shock art.
Six says he even
had to keep the film details secret from the project's financiers, who
didn't find out about all the orifice tailoring until after Human
Centipede was released. It must have done OK at the box office, because the sequel is already in production. Here's the trailer. It's not for the
And now for the all Human Centipede ephemera we found on the interwebs:
1. Human Centipede Cat Toy.
First off, wow, $100! Revolting pet toys sure don't come cheap. But still, if
anyone in our lives would pounce around with something based on
shit-themed torture-porn, it'd be our evil cat. (Available at OhBoyCatToy's Etsy store)
2. Human Centipede Necklace
Just in time for Halloween. Seriously, that's the only OK time to wear this. ($38 atLipsTattoo's Etsy store
3. Human Centipede Bracelet

4. Human Centipede Tattoo
We're not totally convinced that this isn't just drawn on with a Sharpee
and a red pen. But considering it's a film projectionist who got the tat, maybe he or she wanted to commemorate the fact that they survived multiple Human Centipede screenings. Hey, you can always put socks on when company comes over. (via Alamo Drafthouse Cinema)
