When Human Centipede (First Sequence) played at Fantastic Fest in 2009, it boasted a brutally disgusting concept and failed to deliver. The idea was a brilliant one that got stretched into a feature length film with a terrible structure and a moronic plot. It’s no secret that the film didn’t thrill me, but it’s partially because of the potential of the set up being squandered by awful writing and direction from Tom Six.

So, excuse me if I don’t believe the advertising-ready hype for the next installment.

The campaign so far has included a trailer where people react Two Girls One Cup style to the film. It has people covering their eyes, screaming, throwing up, and flat out leaving the film. Clearly the movie is selling itself on its gross-out alone.

The new teaser trailer gives a bit more insight by briefly giving us a full frontal introduction to the villain of Human Centipede II (Full Sequence).

Oh, and it’s in black and white? Perfect for showing bodily fluids…

I have every hope in the world that Six made this movie truly vile and reprehensible, but that was the promise last time, and we got people in diapers moaning and making head-scratchingly dumb choices. Even if the story and acting are bad this time around, at least (please, please, please) let the gore be sick.

Is that too much to ask for?

The film will be premiering at Fantastic Fest later this month, and we’ll be sure to be there.
