The Human Centipede is one of those movies that you either love or you hate. Personally, I thought that it was very well-made, but not quite as disturbing as it was marketed as being. The sequel, Full Sequence, was in my opinion very stupid and seemed to be trying too hard to come off as disturbing. Some people have claimed that the sequel was meant to be a dark comedy, but taken as that it is still a waste of time. The final movie in this trilogy, Final Sequence, is said to take place in a prison with a 500 person centipede.
EW has landed the first image from the film that confirms the prison location, while also giving us our first looks at Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey, who played the villains Dr. Heiter and Martin in the first and second films, respectively. Director Tom Six told EW that, “Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey play very different characters that will put Dr. Heiter and Martin in the shade, They are both brilliant actors with their own style. Laurence played a mute in Part 2; now he is a smart guy with a whole lot of dialog. Dieter played a cold, restrained doctor in Part 1; now he is a loud, racist, sadistic a–hole. Robert Lasardo plays a very cool, daring part, and I gave ex-porn• star Bree Olson her first break as a serious actress, and she does one hell of a job. I play ‘Tom Six’ in the movie, which is an Oscar nomination performance.“
Six continued, “THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross,” Six continues about the film’s plot, “But it will be the most controversial one politically-wise. It will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical of the three. Parts 1 and 2 have a very European feel. Part 3 is very American with the highest budget, a big movie score, widescreen, and an XXL human centipede. It’s set in an American maximum security prison in the middle of the desert…”
Porn star Bree Olsen and Eric Roberts are also said to be co-starring in this politically incorrect film. So will this film continue in the tradition of the original film or simply be a disturbing mess of a movie that is easily forgotten, like the sequel?
