The Human Centipede

What to Know

Critics 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.

Nigel Andrews Financial Times [The sequel] is already in the can. Which is where many of us will be, seeking relief for emetically affected stomachs. Rated: 2/5 Aug 26, 2010 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian It scales the heights of yuckiness. It places a flag on a hitherto undreamt-of Everest-peak of offensiveness. Rated: 3/5 Aug 20, 2010 Full Review Sukhdev Sandhu Daily Telegraph (UK) 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! Rated: 2/5 Aug 20, 2010 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Notable only for the sheer oddity behind its concept, The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is not a horror movie that wants to scare you. Instead, it wants to leave you with a sense of revulsion. Rated: 1/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Andrea Hubert NME (New Musical Express) Psychologically indelible nastiness. Rated: 3/5 May 19, 2021 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The simple truth is that the selling point, beyond the obvious novelty of the entire situation, is the freakish yet disturbing performance of Dieter Laser. Rated: 2.0/4.0 Sep 11, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Zélia L if you’re looking for a genuinely gut twisting, deeply scarring movie, then i shall recommend. has everything you want from a horror movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/04/24 Full Review Party P The only moral of the story is, learn how to fix yout tires, this is an actual waste of time, i understand that it js a low budget film, but come on, thats the best you can do? Well what do i expect, the director is not even good, based on his movies. Wanna waste your friends time, recommend it to them Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/09/24 Full Review Chris D Acting was so bad you’d think this was a parody. The idea was weird and not that entertaining Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/06/24 Full Review Samuel R Creative concept, nice use of psychological horror, but suffers from poor cinematography, cheap effects, and a rather disgusting appeal. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/22/24 Full Review Omni W i feel bad for the critics who had to watch this. id rather watch skibiti toilet tbh. at least that wouldn't leave me regretting eating from five guys. i will admit it takes a talented director to come up with such a horrific movie such as this but at the same time, its just like who let him cook? if your feeling curios or bored enough, just know, you will feel something you have never felt before. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/21/24 Full Review Les N I think you'd look far and wide and struggle to find worse actors Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
