Full Sequence works as an imperfect but accurate, perhaps only half-conscious homage to Cronenberg and the original Human Experiment films. The director pays tribute to the doctor in Full Sequence (there's the same nod to The Brood with its disaffected metamorphosis sequence) but the other victims are not simply slaughtered. Heiter and his gangster pals have their own individual and distressing fates after being sliced up and sewn back together. The human-centipede sequence seems taken from one of those earliest modern horror films, doesn't it? In any case it's executed with extreme precision and isn't gratuitous. It's one of those sequences which makes you feel quite uncomfortable, and you don't really know where they are going to take you until the final 30 minutes or so, but when it actually happens there is a rupture in the proceedings which is truly horrible. If you don't see it or don't care to see it, don't read this review.
Six has declined to comment on why he titled his film \"Human Centipede,\" saying, \"There is no meaning to the title.\" In the same interview, Six was asked about the similarities between his film and the book by Thomas Block and said, \"I liked the book, what can I say? Copy is not meant to be bad. It's just a copy.\" It's a basic idea to make a film out of a book, whether of fact or fiction. Tom Six can't resist the temptation of the old free-for-all of being a low-budget indie, and his film is a huge success. 7211a4ac4a
