Ever since we got word that Tom Six’s The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (review here) is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on October 5th from IFC Films and MPI Media Group, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the full list of extra features that will be included. Today that wait is officially over.
The DVD and Blu-ray will both be available as bonus-filled, unrated versions that include:
* Deleted scenes
* Behind-the-scenes footage
* An interview with Tom Six
* Foley session
* Feature-length documentary with Tom Six
The plot of The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is diabolically simple: Two pretty American girls (Ashley C. Williams, Ashlynn Yennie) are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany their car breaks down, leaving them alone in the woods at night. They take refuge in an isolated villa, where they wake the next morning to find themselves trapped in a basement along with a Japanese businessman. An older German man (a maniacally intense Dieter Laser) introduces himself as a retired surgeon who gained fortune and fame by separating Siamese twins. He then calmly tells his three “patients” that, far from being separated, they will be surgically attached to each other in a ghastly operation to connect their gastric systems. Thus will be born a new creature: the human centipede! Dutch director Tom Six’s film is hands-down the most memorable horror of the year.
A sensation in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America, as well as a viral phenomenon with unprecedented Internet word of mouth (the trailer alone has nearly 2 million hits on YouTube), the movie even received the high honor of being referenced in a satirical bit on the 2010 Emmy Awards telecast.
The Human Centipede (First Sequence) won the Trophy Prize for Best Picture at Screamfest LA and the Jury Prize for Best Actor (Dieter Laser) at the Austin Fantastic Fest. And it truly has legs: Tom Six is currently at work on the sequel.
