Human Centipede

It takes a very special movie to go ass to mouth… But this film, from director Tom Six, not only goes there, it takes you right to the edge of medically innacurate absurdity and drops you off of a cliff. We’ve got the first trailer today from the folks at IFC, who are releasing The Human Centipede as part of their IFC Midnight line-up both on demand and in theaters at the end of April. The trailer — from where I’m sitting — is an excellent slice of the film. It brings intensity, creepiness and even more creepiness.

Human Centipede follows the story of two vacationing American girls who get lost in the backwoods of Germany and stumble upon the dwelling of a mad scientist, played by Dieter Laser. He captures them and makes them part of his project, which is to connect three human beings through their gastrointestinal track. You’ll get more of the picture from the trailer below. At last year’s Fantastic Fest, our own Cole Abaius almost walked out of a screening of this movie — and that’s saying a lot. It just seems like one of those flicks that you might have to see, if you’re brave.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) will be On-Demand on April 28th, with a limited theatrical release starting April 30 and expanding on May 7. That means you’ll have to choose between this and Iron Man 2.
