Why did I watch that?

We just watched, The Human Centipede.
When I first heard about it I thought it would be about adding extra limbs to one person.


I'm not going to explain the concept because I don't want that written on my blog.
I don't think it was a very good film. The guy doing it was really creepy and what he was doing was disgusting, but if you took the concept out of the movie then it would be boring.

The ending was annoying because I want to know what happens next but I really don't want to see the second film. Especially if the acting is as bad as it was in this movie. I guess they were the only actors they could get that would want to play such roles.

To be honest, I wouldn't even watch it for a second time. There are not many films I would say that about. I'm glad we rented another film to watch later so I don't go to sleep thinking about it... I am thinking about it now though... I have so many questions. Like, I know that it was supposedly medically accurate but how did they pee? and how did the second two drink? How long was the time frame of the movie because wouldn't the second two died of dehydration/starvation? How many days can you live without water? Googled it. 3 days. Was it because they were put on a drip? I bet it was. Also do they have tongues? Like, could they taste? Gross. Gross. Gross. What if they were sick? OMG. 

I always think when I'm watching a horror movie, what would I do? and then I realise, I would never be in that situation. For example, the two girls get a flat tyre and have no signal in the middle of nowhere. What would I do? Check if I can change it myself. (no I cannot. Damn I'm such a bad lesbian.)  See if I can get a phone signal within view of the car. If I can't, STAY IN THE CAR all night with the doors locked. 

Do not go into the woods wearing only heals, short shorts and a boob tube. It's good advice.


  1. Things I thought:

    1) Never again will 'middle rule' be a viable option for ANYTHING.

    2) The film as a whole would be at least twenty minutes shorter if the creepy Doctor guy walked faster than 2 mile per hour.

    3) 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' is a more entertaining exploration of anthropomorphic insects.

    4) As Tim Wade so rightly pointed out about ten minutes into the film, "this could either be the set up for a porn film or a horror film. Really, it could go either way."

    5) Why does the guy from ABBA turn up as a Policeman near the end?
