Before Tom Six did The Human Centipede trilogy, he found a different way to connect humans with What the F**k!. Instead of them being held against their will and forced to be sewn a$$ to mouth; he had a Dutch singer kidnapped by a his two biggest fans so that his penis could be attached to his hostage’s vajayjay in order to get her pregnant.
If this sounds like a movie you can watch over and over again, then you can order it now from Six Entertainment and it will be signed by the Mad Man himself.
I don’t know about you, but I am adding this to my collection. How can you not show this to your friends whenever they come over. It will forever change their perception of Foreign films with English subtitles.
When The Human Centipede came out in 2006, people couldn’t get over the movie by Dutch filmmaker Tom Six. The world was shocked about the concept. Even though they are baffled by it, they were also intrigued. Begrudgingly they watched it to find out what all the chatter was about. The more and more people who went to see it, the more popular it became. Since its initial release, it has had two sequels, a cult following and many parodies including South Park, Conan O’Brien, a p0rn version called The Human Sextipede and Key and Peele.
If you are like me, then you want to know more about how this cult franchise from the artist himself. On Tuesday, I had the chance to talk to its creator, Tom Six and his sister, Ilona Six, who is his co-partner in Six Entertainment Company.
Let’s go back to beginning, what type of childhood did they have to come up with such a twisted movie? Ilona let her older brother answer that one. He said, “We were the victims of a happy childhood. We were raised very sweet and everything. We had nice cats. It was all fun. That made us mad, I think.” Then she chimed in, “You made me mad.” He explained how, “I made her mad. I prepared her for the business. I showed her horror films and all kinds of films like that when she was very underage. She still has a trauma from it.”
Now that we know how they started out, how did he come up with the idea for this movie? He shared the origin with me, “When I was watching television a story about a child molester came on. He was very nasty individual and he was given a very low punishment. I was very angry about it and I said as a joke to people they should stitch his mouth to the anus of a fat truck driver. That would be the proper punishment, donâ€™t you think?” Then he continued, “That idea kept lingering in my head and I thought that would be a great idea for a horror film. People havenâ€™t seen that before. Then from the idea to the end of making the film was quite a journey. It was pretty intense.”
How has this insane ride been for them, he said, â€œWe are living the dream. We created something. You hope it spreads like a virus and it did. Itâ€™s like a very very aggressive virus. They are talking about it in Japan, Australia and that gave us the possibility to make more films and be taken seriously, very seriously. I had the opportunity to work with amazing great actors.â€
They will have the chance to work with many more great actors in the future. He shared with me, â€œIlona and I are working on different films now and we are taking it slow. We are writing and doing things.â€ Then he added, â€œWe keep making films that are original and exploring the dark side of humanity. People were born evil and I like to explore that. Always with pitch black, dark comedy elements to it for the people that see it.â€
Before people see those others films, The Human Centipede is completing its run in theaters, OnDemand and online streaming sites as you read this with The Human Centipede 3: The Final Sequence. How does he feel that about reaching the end of the centipede? He said, â€œItâ€™s kind of sad, but we have to continue to create more art. These 3 movies, they make a movie centipede. They can be connected and form one four and half hour movie, that is the fun part of it. So we move on.â€
They might move on for this franchise, but we never will. The Human Centipedes have left a mark in movie history that can never be erased.
The Human Centipede 3 is out today and sadly, Tom Sixâ€™s franchise has reached its end. In 2009, the world couldn’t stop talking about the movie that was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before and now 6 years later the tail, I mean the tale, is coming to an end.
Bill Boss (Dieter Laser) runs the most violent prison in the United States and his loyal right hand man there, Dwight (Laurence R Harvey), has come up with a plan to restore order. The deputy wants to use the prisoners to create the world’s largest human centipede. Boss, has other ideas in mind, but he is seriously considering it.
When I say that Boss has other ideas, I mean it. Laser is the most sadistic in this sequel and you can tell he is enjoying every second of it. He tortures the prisoners in a way that will have you putting your hands over your eyes. This movie is not for the squeamish, but that doesn’t mean it isnâ€™t enjoyable for a lot of people.
During one scene, Boss takes a knife to a prisoner, slices the skin of his testicles down the middle, reaches in and takes out his balls. Then he asks Dwight to have the chef make a tasty meal out of them. Although the scene sounds horrific, it is one that will have you laughing after you see the movie. Thatâ€™s the thing with The Human Centipede franchise, it is hard to watch but it is so much fun to talk about afterwards.
They truly went balls to the wall with The Human Centipede 3 and fans of the movie and this genre will not be disappointed. If you want to make your Memorial Day Weekend more memorable, then I suggest watching the film by brother and sister, Tom and Ilona Six, with your family this weekend. What goes better with hot dogs and hamburgers than a movie about a chain of people being attached mouth to a$$?
The Human Centipede 3 is out now in select theaters and it is currently available on OnDemand and online streaming services.
