Human Centipede
« on: May 03, 2010, 03:51:46 PM »
I don't have anything for this, but thought I would just get out in front of the subject.

I did find out that the human centipede is made up of ladies, not dudes, and that somehow this made it less objectionable to me. Was that wrong?

It depends on what the objections were in the first place.

The trailer I saw made it look like there was one dude and two ladies. I may have misunderstood but frankly I don't want to go back and check.

I've gone out of my way to see a lot of the sickest stuff from the past few years but I think I've found the Line I Shall Not Cross.

Two girls, one guy.

I think it looks interesting. Definitely looks more like Cronenberg and Yuzna than speculative trash like Hostel and other torture porn. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

From the wikipedia entry, this seems to have nothing to offer beyond the horror elements.

It seems that horror movies nowadays are either a remake or really, really gross.  Like Anti-Christ, the Wikipedia entry was enough for me.

I looked up Yuzna because i don't really like gross out horror movies and this was the first image Google came up with.

Yuzna apparently wrote "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" also.

Yes.

However, as Martin says, it's two gals and a guy.  Predictably, the guy is the head. 

Now, that I find objectionable.

I kind of really hate that the premise makes one consider why it would be better to be the head.

I believe I suggested in a chat (this board's or the other's--I don't remember) that "Which segment of a human centipede would you rather be?" might be a good question to pose on Depravity's Rainbow.  But then I realized everyone would almost certainly choose to be the head, so the topic would have no legs.

Another (initially) inadvertent pun, by the way.

I like that one of the selling points of the movie is that it is "100% medically accurate!" As if the main reason someone would have for not seeing the movie is that it isn't believable enough.
