Madcap director Tom Six has wrapped production on the eagerly awaited sequel to his outrageous sleeper hit The Human Centipede. Entitled The Human Centipede: Full Sequence, the film introduces a new demented doc named Martin and a whooping 12 victims to be sewn together ass-to-mouth.
Peep the quirky teaser:
Unlike its predecessor, The Human Centipede: Full Sequence is being promoted as being “100% medically inaccurate” and will serve as a love letter from Six to those sensitive souls who dismissed the original over its fucked up premise.
Six tells IFC:
I knew when I wrote the script that it was going to be controversial. There are movies that are more gory, but somehow this film messes with your head. People find it so degrading that they think that because I can imagine such horrible things that I must be a pervert or an idiot or an escapee from a mental hospital.
When I was writing [First Sequence]. I had so many ideas that I couldn’t fit them all in the movie. And I wanted the audience to get used to this crazy centipede. Now, in ‘Part 2,’ I can use all my ideas.
So everything is in it this time. I don’t hold back anything. It’s pretty nasty.
IFC Films released The Human Centipede: First Sequence in April to critical acclaim from the horror community and surprisingly much of the mainstream media. After winning Best Picture at the 2009 Scream Fest LA Film Festival and Best Horror Film at the 2009 Fantastic Fest, the indie-frightener is now up for Best Villain and Most Memorable Mutilation honors at the upcoming 2010 Scream Awards.
For those not familiar with the movie, The Human Centipede: First Sequence stars Ashlynn Yennie and Ashley C. Williams as American tourists abducted by an evil German scientist hell-bent on creating a human centipede by sewing people together mouth-to-anus. To get the full skinny, read Clatto’s review here.
The Human Centipede: Full Sequence is slated for theatrical release in 2011. Home editions of the original film will be available on Oct. 5.
