The Human Centipede (First Sequence) Slithers to Limited Theatrical Release

Since word first broke of Tom Six’s disturbing little film The Human Centipede (First Sequence), the Internet lit up with the kind of curiosity usually reserved for old time carnival freak shows. What’s all the fuss about? You’ll soon get to see for yourself.

Fangoria reports that The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (review here) is locked down to open in New York with other cities to follow starting on April 30th courtesy of IFC. Yes, the same day as the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake opens wide.

“Outside the more outré work of Takashi Miike and David Cronenberg, you won’t have seen anything quite like Dutch avant-garde artist Tom Six’s totally bizarre off-the-wall oddity. Internationally respected Siamese twin surgeon Dr. Josef Heiter has a demented vision for mankind’s future existence. He wants to remove human beings’ kneecaps so they have to exist on all fours and then surgically graft them mouth-to-anus to form a centipede chain. When two stranded female Americans arrive at his luxury home-cum-hospital looking for help, his long-gestating plan swiftly moves into chilling action with a shocking force. Kidnapping a third Japanese male tourist, he begins the tissue matches, teeth removal, and buttock moulding to create his triplet creature… The First Sequence in Six’s intended trilogy features truly unforgettable imagery, clinically dazzling direction, and a so-far-round-the-bend mad doctor performance from German superstar Dieter Laser you’ll scream. Behold the grotesque New Flesh. If you dare!”

    Sounds like Yuzna’s Society(1989) on crack!

    I am dying to see this! Kudos to IFC for giving horror fans something to see the weekend of April 30 – ’cause I’m sure not plunking down a penny for the new Nightmare.
