Concept Sketches from The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
As if the description alone of Tom Six's The Human Centipede (First Sequence) isn't disturbing enough, six sketches that basically lay out the film's entire concept have surfaced online and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that a picture's worth a thousand words.
Arrow in the Head has all the drawings, but our favorite can be seen below. Click it or the AITH link for the rest. But be careful; they are definitely NSFW!
The film stars Dieter Laser, Ashley C. Williams, Ashlynn Yennie, and Akihiro Kitamura. 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!
