Likely, you’re not ready. I witnessed The Human Centipede last week at a critic’s screening and was amused to see many folks in the audiences making disgusted sounds, turning their heads any which way in order to miss what was happening on screen. But they always looked back…

The film is of course about a mad German surgeon named Dr. Josef Heiter who happens upon a duo of pretty American girls whose car broke down nearby. Dr. Heiter realizes that they might be the key to his next experiment. See, the good doc’s an internationally-respected surgeon, known for his work splitting Siamese twins, but now he wants to do the exact opposite and create his own monstrosities. He’s performed his experiment and managed to link dogs before but now human test subjects have fallen into his lap…



IFC has picked up The Human Centipede for release and just sent us this first poster, which I’m glad kept the “100% Medically Accurate” tagline.


Now you should head over to Arrow in the Head, where they’re exclusively debuted some concept art from the film. The good doctor actually shows some of this to his patients as he demonstrates his plans in one of the more twisted scenes in the film. It’s surprisingly not quite as disgusting as you might think but it’s got
tension up the wazoo- really a treat for horror fans.


The Human Centipede hits theaters April 30th. Bring your friends.
