Wait, talking about The Human Centipede isn’t socially acceptable?
Reason to fanboy, I do believe.

It makes me feel awkward whenever someone says the first Human Centipede is disgusting.
I love the movie. To be honest, when I watched it for the first time I was not disgusted in the least bit. Whenever someone says the movie is disgusting it makes me realize just how sick and warped I really am.
The second movie in the series is even more graphic than the first, and that is one of my all time favorite movies.
Then again, I suppose The Human Centipede is more popular than most of the films I watch, so more people have heard of it even if they are not a fan of horror. Anyways, The Human Centipede is a wonderful movie, I just wished people didn’t get so offended when I say so.
Now for those of you who do not know even the fist thing about these movies, I will explain to you briefly what all of the mixed feelings about the films are about. A disturbed doctor (Dr. Heiter) takes 3 hostages and preforms a rather grotesque medical procedure that he first accomplished on 3 of his pet dogs. He attaches the 3 unwilling patients mouth-to-anus so that it ends up looking much like a centipede. Banned in multiple countries, the film received very limited theatrical release in the United States.
The Human Centipede is a movie that the average person looks to stay away from. I’ve encountered countless number of friends and family that say they never want to see the movie. But myself, being the twisted, disturbed person I am, fell in love with this film. Probably the most intriguing thing about the film is that it boasts to be “100% medically accurate,” meaning the procedure done in the film is actually possible. I believe that is why the film is so disturbing.
With most of the surgical procedure being implied, the film is not as graphic as one might expect. Though I am one that enjoys watching very macabre films, a few scenes of The Human Centipede did cause me to grimace. If you’re looking for something to disturb you, for a gruesome movie to watch with friends, or simply if you’re a big fan of horror as myself, this film is a must.
