Here's a clip of some of the director's Q&A. Actually quite amusing when he explains where he got the concept.

It never ceases to amaze me the shit studios put in theaters. Who in their right thought this was a good idea. The studio, or whoever funded this should have told the idiot that pitched this idea to go pound sound.

It's slang for go take a walk. I've heard it many times. I've also heard "go kick rocks" and a choice few others.

But I really would like to have been a fly on the wall when this was pitched to whoever greenlit the film.

It's not really not believable. I mean..think about a lot of those little crappy horror films that are churned out like crazy. I mean, it's a viable, albeit crappy quality of films but whatever, financial gain I guess. Somebody out there will like it. And they will buy it on DVD and so forth.

Man am I glad you're not calling the shots.

The movie is getting good reviews so maybe you should see it before making statements like that

I'm clearly tainted by the internet as this didn't even phase me one bit.

Same here. (Nice pun BTW).

If Cronenberg or Miike or Von Trier directed this, people would be all over it. There's a good chance it will be complete trash. But it could also be interesting.

re: Human Centipede (What?)

I am wondering why he would put the guy at the front. I mean, it only makes sense to put the guy in the middle. If I were making a human centipede, I know I would at least want the front and tail ends of it to be nice to look at!

And yeah, this is hardly shocking. Seems like many of you have never been near the nether regions of another human being.

I'm sorry.

It just occurred to me. I would hope the filmmakers secured the rights to "Dem Bones" to use as the movie's theme song. Just imagine the revised lyrics:


Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones ...
Now hear the word of the Lord ...
The asshole's connected to the ... mouth hole!

Yeah, I didn't think the images were disturbing at all, though it is marginally disturbing to think about. I personally find the premise oddly compelling. I have so many questions, and I think I'm gonna have to see the movie for answers.

Also, this comment from the OP link had me :

My brother used to have 3 little yappy dogs who would all eat each others' feces. Disgusted with this behavior, he once mused that he could save some money by feeding one dog and then surgically attaching them all - mouth to anus - in a ring. The closed system would feed itself perpetually.

I see now that it would not have worked, as the critical step of removing the dogs' kneecaps never occured to us while discussing the idea.

Because he doesn't want the centipede to get lost?

Okay, is there going to be any discussion about this film that doesn't deal with ass-to-mouth related stuff?

I think one can safely say no, there will not be.
