Want to Know What I Thought of The Human Centipede II?

If the answer to the question posed by this post's title is "Yes," then I suggest you head over to KT Grant's excellent blog, Babbling About Books and More, where I've reviewed the controversial sequel by Tom Six. I reviewed the original one there last year, and so I was more than happy to oblige Ms. Grant with a follow-up review of the second one, especially after having interviewed Six and his star Laurence Harvey a few weeks back. Here's a sample:

A year and a half ago, I spoke out as a defender of a film I thought was being unfairly judged right out of the gate. That film was Tom Six’s The Human Centipede, and it was alternately being bashed by the mainstream for being too revolting, and by the hardcore horror freaks for being not revolting enough. The movie that I saw was a slick, well-made psychological horror flick being wrongly marketed as a gross-out piece of torture porn. I felt those dismissing it as too over-the-top simply hadn’t seen the picture, and was saddened by those who only seemed to be upset about not seeing enough ass-to-mouth contact.
For the rest of the review, check out Babbling About Books.

I agree with you 100% Here we have is a wonderful, beautifully made movie that took horror to new heights (which was needed) and it got punched in the face for it.

People need to not be so uptight and pull the stick out of their ass and look at it through the bigger picture. It's art, get over it.

Also, how were you able to interview Tom?

Couldn't have said it better myself, Jenny.

And how did I get the interview? Well, I can't give all my secrets away, now can I..?

Licking out arse-holes is great, as long as the arse-hole that you`re licking out is the lushious young arse-hole of a gorgeous 18 year-old girl whos in the prime of her life and at the absolute pinnacle and peak of her physical attractiveness and desirability (a bit like the lovely miss Jenny Krueger in fact).

This movie is disgusting! We watched it uncut (trustedmoviedownloads.com/human-centipede-2 )and my friends ran out halfway through it. xD I stayed though.

I must admit, if I hadn't been committed to reviewing it, I never would have finished it myself.

That fat bloke is a ludicrous joke, he should be burned at the stake.
