Isn't that the whole allure of the movie? Sewing people together is mildly creepy but when its ass to mouth you kinda expect some nasty shit (pun intended).

Hope the Asian guy at the front didn't eat anything too spicy.

It wouldn't matter, they'd just cut away to a random shot of the Dr. before anything happens anyway.

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

I'm still curious as to what route they're going to take with the sequel. Especially if the plan is to get 14 people together like that.

They're going to make a human train and call it The Steamer.

So is piss, blood, snot, puss and sweat but you don't see me eating/drinking those either.

Anyways, I liked the movie. It was entertaining and fucked up and I don't think we needed to see more than we did. Also, let's be realistic; it's not a Cat III movie or a japanese movie. Tom Six probably had distribution in mind when he made it.

Spoiler:
we did get that, although it was implied. The japanee guy said something like 'oh i gotta shit, i'm sorry" and the one girl starts to gag, but they didn't show it graphically

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

I had to order this OnDemand Sat. night. I've been hearing so much about the film that I needed to see it. My gf attempted to watch it with me, but she bailed after about 35 min. Then she kept yelling out that I was nasty for watching it. Was it gross? Of course, but not graphically so. I've seen far, far worse depravity on film than what we got here. But the concept was especially grotesque. I thought the Dr. did a damn good job. He was so incredibly creepy and misanthropic that I couldn't help but love his performance. Even the girls weren't your typical dumbass Americans. And kudos for throwing in a Japanese guy. I loved the mix of languages being used.

I don't know how they're going to do a sequel, but I'll def watch it. I thought this one was well-shot and acted. I'll pick it up on BD.

If anyone wants to see a better "poo-oriented"/shocking film, go see Dusan Makavejev's SWEET MOVIE.

If that's actually how it's said, then that seems like it might come across almost as comical.

Well, in the context of the scene at the time, it's more gross than anything.

I love that he adds a little graphic to help people understand the concept.

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

scientifically speaking....based on that graphic it's a bit more complicated right? I mean person in front poops, which goes to the 2nd and I'm assuming it has to be digested over time and again to the 3rd. Right? Is that how it happens?

They can use "Love Train" as the theme song.

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

scientifically speaking, for everyone to live the food has to nourish everyone, so therefore, the last person should be the only one pooping. The only thing that should be coming out of the first and second people's asses is chewed food (not poop).

There's definitely a new type of digestion process involved!

Do they explain that? I thought this was "100% Medically Accurate." Then again, I don't think the centipede experiment is a success.

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

That is only if you take the simplistic illustration literally. He doesn't do any internal surgery, the whole procedure is superficial, so everyone still has stomachs and intestines.

It is a little bit funny. They couldn't show graphic poo eating because they are all attached, it isn't like one poops on the ground and the next one eats it.

Ok, you in no way deserve this, but this poster (at Mondo Tees)has been delaying my fucking Evil Dead poster, which is pissing me off, so the rant is tied to your honestly curious quote.

Yeah, they are eating shit. Which isn't a huge dealbreaker actually. Flood them with antibiotics, and they will be able to grab nutrients from shit. To get enough nutrients to keep the third person alive, they would make the first guy eat 24/7.

Which, this is shock horror. It isn't supposed to make sense. I was ok with that until they added the medically accurate bit. The 2nd and 3rd person would die of thirst before a week was out. Arrrggghh. The concept is terrifying. Noone wants to be "pede" #3. But claiming accuracy? Gah!

Or South Park.

So if he attached them all that way to create a new way of existence for humans, wouldn't he know that it would kill them and his experiment ultimately prove a failure?

Re: Human Centipede (What?)

So, taking the whole water part out of the equation, can a person actually survive by eating nothing but poop? Doesn't seem like there would be nearly enough nutrients for somebody to actually survive on that and even if there were actually enough nutrients to keep the second person alive, it seems like the nutrients would continue to decrease as it went through the centipede so the third and fourth people would have even less nutrients available.
