New Sights and Sounds from “THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3”News Samuel Zimmerman
Whilst not exactly a traditional teaser, a new look at the threatened third film in Tom Six’s grotesque horror-comedy series THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE marries sight and sound, offering a new still and an audio clip. There’s no indication they’re of the same scene, but there’s certainly grunting, and Dieter Laser barking.
Laser of course was part of the first HUMAN CENTIPEDE film, which set off a firestorm of buzz thanks to its outrageous premise of a mad doctor (Laser) attempting to sew three abductees ass-to-mouth into a sort of patchwork human pet. Things get gross. Things end badly. Director Six followed that film with the black-and-white and very confrontational THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FULL SEQUENCE), which saw a disturbed fan of the first film take the grand vision to heart. Far less funny and far more prodding, FULL SEQUENCE and its unsettling antagonist Martin (as played by Laurence Harvey) weren’t as embraced.
A new HUMAN CENTIPEDE beckons however, with FINAL SEQUENCE shaping up to be the most meta of all. Both Laser and Harvey star in an American-set prison tale alongside Eric Roberts. Six recently told EW, “THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross, 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. Plot-wise I won’t share details yet but if you let your imagination run wild you might get ideas.”
