Reviews

Total Film

Jamie Russell

Whizzing straight out of leftfield, Dutchman tom Six’s instant-cult-flick is laced with a high-concept vision of inhumanity. It’s a balls-out exploitation flick; grubby, sadistic and, given the tiny budget, expertly put together.

Time Out

Nigel Floyd

Six substitutes cheap thrills and self-conscious sick-making for genuinely disturbing dread.

Empire Magazine

Kim Newman

This will not appeal to everyone, whether it will appeal to anyone is another question. With dark humour from time to time, underneath an extremely repulsive concept, this is a relatively conventional horror movie.

The Guardian

Peter Bradshaw

Despite being entirely deplorable and revolting, this B-movie horror from Dutch film-maker Tom Six is also … well, sort of brilliant. It scales the heights of yuckiness. It places a flag on a hitherto undreamt-of Everest-peak of offensiveness.

Philip French

The writing and direction are ham-fisted

The Human Centipede has its moments, but they’re largely obscured by umpteen holes in the plot as well as by reams of exposition.

Variety

Peter Debruge

Only real payoff is seeing the monstrosity assembled, and though that will surely earn the Dutch writer-director a cult reputation on the genre circuit, "going there" does not a movie make.

The Sunday Times

Peter Whittle

It is not that the director, Tom Six, piles on the gore, but rather that he displays such relish in depicting the degradation. Repulsive and depraved are words that will be music to his ears, I imagine.
