What disturbs me more is that this excuse for a movie is actually getting a sequel. It was a beautifully disturbing idea that could've been great, but it was also a very poorly executed idea. The movie was just overall boring, and I couldn't manage to keep myself interested through the whole movie.
The sequel probably won't be as disturbing anyways. Do you know why? We've seen it before. The idea has already been used, and adding a hint of sexuality to the film won't make it any more disturbing.
Leave the horrific distortion of the human body to Junji Ito. If you don't know what I'm talking about, look up Uzumaki. I don't usually read magna and stuff like that, I don't get it, but the ideas Mr. Ito portrays in his books are extremely disturbing. Also look up The Enigma of Amigra Fault, which is short, but bizzare to the extreme, I can assure you. It's a lot better than Human Centipede, I, a horror fan, assure you.

Was there something in the underlying concepts of the first movie that desperately needed closer examination...?

Sounds like a good date movie.
You know what? I agree. Since no matter how sick fetishes you have, after seeing this movie your girlfriend will think you aren't sick at all.

First film was a pile of garbage. I didn't even find it shocking, it was just crap.
^ This. There's been gorier, and even more disturbing films in the past; the problem with The Human Centipede is that it just sucks. Nothing about the plot is believable, none of the characters are likable (the Japanese guy starts out okay, but ends up being just as unlikable as the girls), and no one is working at full capacity (that is, no one acts as a real person would given the context in which they find themselves, unless said person had an IQ of 50). It's so bad that it isn't even like the disturbing theme is the point; it's just pointless.

Due to my massive list of sexual fetishes...I really want to see this now.

Dammit!

Wow a lot of negative comments. I'm definitely going to watch it, the first was an interesting little idea but was pretty tame all things considered. They aren't trying to make the next Citizen Kane, the fact it shocked so many people and got the attention it did means it succeeded at what it set out to do.

A movie being weird or disturbing is no reason not to see it, its still an experience you're not getting out of most movies. If it was just bland and boring that's a reason to hate it. Either way just don't watch it if you don't want to.
You just took the words right out of my keyboard. XD

OT: I'm personally seeing it because my inner troll requires it. :p

I thought most Escapees were pro freedom of expression? Why is everyone now wanting it banned everywhere and the viewers locked up in a mental ward? :L

Mostly because of the concept of the human centipede, twelve people in the centipede, and the antagonist wanking with sandpaper, and raping the end person on the centipede with his dick covered in barb wire. Some people may have a problem with that. And this sequel has all the blood and shit that wasn't in the first. The makers said that the first desensitized people, and the second went all out. It may not be as bad as A Serbian Film, but at least that had (a really flimsy) message, as opposed to this, which is gore porn. Hell, Saw (At least the first, I think) told people to not take life for granted.

The advertising works, I just watched the first one.

All in all, very silly. Obeys the obvious horror tropes, occasional flash of gore/boob, failed escape attempt, individual not being able to handle.

None of us thought it was particularly sickening, but maybe that's because we were so aware that is was a film, by the very weak prelude to the operation.

To those that condemn people that decide to watch this, shows how very close minded you are being. What I choose to watch as entertainment has no bearing on me as a person, more what I do in response to the entertainment.

I saw it for what it was, 90 minutes of mindless screen nonsense, and will never really pay it any more mind.

I have no interest in seeing the second, as I know that it will be suffering from the "one-up-manship" present in so many poor sequels.

Although as a side note, the ending was pretty unpleasant for the girl - but the scenario felt force so it didn't really hold any gravitas.

That pretty much sums this up for me. Why the fuck would anyone want to make this movie in the first place?

What the fuck. Who in its sanity would make a sequel to the worst horror movie ever. OK ok, I know they were not sane to make the first one in first place.

EDIT: Being the UK, I believe a charity of cinephile centipedes who got offended by the first one are behind this.

Doesn't matter how 'shocking' they try to make it, it'll probably suck even more than the first.

Now let's refuse it classification everywhere. Honestly, this sounds horrible. Anything with two of its selling points as "rape and masturbation to suffering" could not possibly be anything other than a shock-and-horror piece of shit.

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film in the series, The Human Centipede, masturbating to the first film, using sandpaper to pleasure himself. He decides to create a "human centipede" of his own, which he uses to his own sexual delight, taking sexual pleasure in watching victims of the centipede defecate in each other's mouths and raping the woman at the end of the centipede.
Yeah... no big loss to the british cinema there... I'm british and i'm not really bothered about it. i like horror films as much as the next sick and twisted little bastard does, but come on... do we REALLY need films like this?

Not good enough. You need to DESTROY IT. DESTROY IT WITH FIRE. AND STICKS. AND STICKS ON FIRE!

Seriously, the first one was just awful. Not scary, not funny, not exciting, not cool, not intresting, not engaging, just disturbing.

Yeah, I'm normally against censorship, but when it's just something created purely to be controversial and offensive, then it doesn't stand up to criticism.

Imo, the Saw movies have some kind of twisted morality to them, and a reasonable plot, at horror movies go, whereas the 2 Hostel movies were just godawful trash, the second even worse than the first. OF course that's opinion, but I'd have not been too concerned about either Hostel never making it to release.

Also, when people make shit like this, it devalues genuine attempts to push the boundaries with something legitimate. For instance, Manhunt 1 and 2 caused gaming so much bad press and were not worth it, whereas I feel Six Days of Fallujah was something worth the controversy, and worth taking some Fox BS for.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for pointless violence for the sake of it, but it CAN be taken too far, and without underlying reasons to justify it, you're just hurting the movie/game industry by making it.

As this film is quite literally a waste of existance, I have a hard time gettign myself worked into a righteous fury over censorship. And frankly, it's NOT censorship- the ratings standards have been in place for years, if you deliberately make a film that does its best to go well beyond those standards you do not have even the slightest right to complain when it's refused classification.

The human centipede had a definate domination/submission theme and themes involving the loss of identity as a group being brutalized by another. The horror was entirely psychological. There was a point to it.

Regardless of that, this is the same country that refused to classify The Exorcist, Clockwork Orange, Texas Chain Saw Massacre, basically a lot of the precursors of modern horror.

I'm not saying the movie is artistic or worth seeing on artistic merit... I'm saying that's for the individual to decide, not a nanny state. The subject matter is clear as day, and it's easy enough for the individual to decide for themselves.

People get worked up over arts they have no interest in watching.
