Shawn reviews The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)
Well, what kind of "B" movie critics would we be if we didn't look into something like this?
The first hour is an incredibly dark look at the main character, Martin. Where his intent is to finish the Dr.'s work from the first film, except Martin is not a doctor,(completely opposite from the first movie actually) and is coined "mentally retarded" by his own family doctor. Who isn't so awesome in the head, himself.
This is not a scary movie. However, the things they didn't show in the first movie, (happened off screen) you see in full view, in this one. All be it black and white.(Minus a nice treat at the end...*shudders*) The black and white really didn't ruin it.
This movie is pure gore porn. The first hour wasn't bad, and if you are a genre-aholic, you'll dig it. It is dirty, filthy, disturbing, and violent as fuck thrasher/killer style.
The ass-to-mouth sequence is still a little ridiculous in my mind. Not really seeing the fetish there. So it really detracts from what I was enjoying in this movie. It's just stupid, but does add the element NO OTHER movie would, after going as far as this movie did, during the first hour. But it keeps getting darker, and far more disturbing.
So, where does that leave my thoughts? I'm a little unsure myself. As a genre-movie lover, this was fantastic on so many fronts. I feel kinda guilty for liking it as much as I did. I really kinda want to give this a Good for that. I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it again, but...maybe I would watch it if it were on.
For now, until my brain wraps around what I just watched, I gotta give it a Good. Still stupid in concept, but a far more superior movie than the first one.
