Two pretty but ditsy American girls are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany, they end up alone at night with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa. The next day, they awaken to find themselves trapped in a terrifying makeshift basement hospital along with a Japanese man. An older German man identifies himself as a retired surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins. However, his three "patients" are not about to be separated but joined together in a horrific operation. He plans to be the first person to connect people via their gastric systems. By doing so, he plans to bring to life his sick lifetime fantasy, the human centipede.Written by

Although the film is set in Germany, it was shot in the Netherlands due to the countries' similar landscapes. Heiter's home, where most of the film takes place, was a villa in the Netherlands found by the production team. The property was in a residential area and not surrounded by woodland as it appears in the film, but by other houses, so the filmmakers had some difficulty ensuring the other houses did not appear in shot. Real hospital beds and intravenous drips were rented from a local hospital. See more »

Shocker movies are a guilty pleasure, kind of like eating nasty junk food or reading trashy novels.
There is something rambunctious about a well-done shocker movie. They usually contain over-the-top acting and doses of black humor. The first couple of "Saw" movies, the "Final Destination" series, and classics such as "Re-Animator" come to mind.
Unfortunately, "Human Centipede" is just gross. If extreme or shock horror movies are on your radar, then you already know the premise. The actor playing "Dieter," the deranged surgeon does a great job with the part and definitely has the look for such a role (he would make a great SS agent in a Nazi movie). The two girls and the guy who become the title character also show the right amounts of shock and disgust when they realize what will become of them. The movie is also shot and edited well. That's where the positives end, however.
It's possible that nowadays people make movies with an eye toward what fans on forums such as these will say about them. With that in mind, it's much more interesting to read reviews and message board postings about "Centipede" than to actually watch the movie.
