The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010)
Critic Consensus: Grotesque, visceral and hard to (ahem) swallow, this surgical horror doesn't quite earn its stripes because the gross-outs overwhelm and devalue everything else.

Critic Reviews for The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
The problem is that this slick piece of schlock is dull, risible and, ultimately, boring.
[The sequel] is already in the can. Which is where many of us will be, seeking relief for emetically affected stomachs.
It scales the heights of yuckiness. It places a flag on a hitherto undreamt-of Everest-peak of offensiveness.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take three human beings and sew them all together via their digestive tracts? Wonder no longer!
With dark humour from time to time, underneath an extremely repulsive concept, this is a relatively conventional horror movie.
Audience Reviews for The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
The mere idea is grotesque but the execution is not as repulsive as the hype will lead you to think, and even if Dieter Laser is truly menacing as the mad doctor, the other actors are mostly terrible and the movie offers a lot more involuntary humor than actual horror.
Tom SIx derives an unexpected and grotesque feel to the horror/gore cinematic genre. Human Centipede is overshadowed by its devious creation of an 'actual' human centipede as well as its diabolical creator. Not for all audience, the film's execution doesn't hit well but does leave a sour mark on the not-so-strong-stomach-filled audience. 3/5
I admit, it's pretty disturbing, but nothing is really shown in graphic detail. The acting is bad but the film does manage to squeeze in some sort of story, I guess. I did not like "The Human Centipede", but it succeeds in grossing you out.
