Did You Know?
On 6 October 2011 the BBFC granted the film an 18 certificate after 32 cuts totaling 2 minutes and 37 seconds were made.
In the beginning, after Martin finishes watching Human Centipede, it shows him rewinding the DVD. It is possibly safe to say that Martin chose to rewind the film as a result of his love for the film and wanted to briefly see all his favorite moments again, as opposed to automatically restarting the film from the beginning.
How disgusting can a movie be?
If you've ever wondered, "how disgusting can a movie be?…" well, this
film pretty much answers the question. For what it is – and you
probably know more or less what it is, or you wouldn't be reading this
– it is fully realized in pretty much every aspect. Casting Harvey was
pure genius. He carries the film with his amazing performance. There
are plenty of little twists to keep you occupied, some of which are
actually humorous in a grotesque way.
The odd thing, though, is that the film really isn't scary. Maybe
because Martin is so divorced from reality that he seems incapable of
true evil. Rather, he is just driven by a single-minded vision to
complete his project. Probably the first real success he's had in his
sad, sad life.
The effects are spot-on, and the pacing generally good, although I
found it dragged a bit about 2/3 of the way through. However, the
brashness and oddness of this film have surely earned it a spot
alongside cult classics such as Eraserhead.
