DVD review: The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011)
Martin (Laurence R. Harvey) is a mentally disturbed loner who lives with his mother in a bleak housing project. He works the night shift as a security guard in an equally grim and foreboding underground parking complex. To escape his dreary existence, Martin loses himself in the fantasy world of the cult horror film The Human Centipede (First Sequence), fetishizing the meticulous surgical skills of the gifted Dr. Heiter, whose knowledge of the human gastrointestinal system inspires Martin to attempt the unthinkable. The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is written and directed by Tom Six. The acting is mostly good and Laurence R. Harvey is top notch as the silent and very creepy Martin who never utters a word. the cinematography is fantastic (it´s a good looking flick), it´s in black and white and the soundtrack is good. There are sprinkles of dark comedy in the beginning but make no misstake this is a dark, depraved and twisted flick. I love it! Plenty of sadism and degradation on screen and this is absolutely not for the squeamish. It´s gory, it´s good looking practical make-up fx and most of the violence occurs on screen. I won´t spoil the fun, lets just say that it´s a very graphic flick. There is T & A in this, both male and female genitalia is shown on screen. There is a rapescene that´s pretty nasty, brutal and prolonged. While the first movie was kinda lame, it failed to live to up to my expectations, this one certainly delievers.
This review is based upon the region 1 DVD release from MPI Home Video.
Rating: 7 out of 7. I enjoyed this a lot. I freakin loved it! The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is uncompromising, graphic and very nasty. It´s sicker and more extreme than the first flick. The acting is good and Laurence R. Harvey is fantastic as the remorselessness Martin. Highly recommended but this movie is not for the politically correct or the squeamish as this is guranteed to offend and repulse!!
