Heed My Words


Just because you can stream the Human Centipede movies (uncut!) from Netflix does NOT mean you should view them.

I am being totally serious, folks.

  1. Oh no! You watched it? Sooooo sorry. Please proceed immediately to your nearest therapist.

  2. I'm oddly intrigued. I've never even heard of this movie.

    I just watched "Hobo With a Shotgun." is this movie worse than that? 'Cause "Hobo" gave me nightmares, mostly just for how bad it was.

  3. I watched the first 'Centipede' movie and kind of liked it... it wasn't very graphic at all. Most of the ooky stuff is suggested.
    Maybe the second one goes further...

    What I liked about the one I saw was the wacky mad surgeon. Usually the mad scientist has some vaguely laudable plan... he's killing folks in the name of saving even more... or something. But the guy in 'Centipede' has no such humanitarian goal... he'd doing what he's doing just because he hates humanity. He's hysterically nutty and irredeemably bad.

  4. That's funny, I just watched the sequel last night. It was the first movie my buddy (we watch a lot of horror together) had to turn his head as he gagged.

  5. I refuse to watch that crap. No pun intended (get it?! ;-)

    Now, my one horror loving friend tells me this Orphan Killer movie is the new "it-movie" of the genre, one of those sleeper cult flicks that comes along now and then. Anyone heard anything about that?

    I'm interested in learning more about the Cabin in the Woods movie, actually...

  6. We watched Human Centipede based on Daniel Tosh's 35 minute monologue about it.

    Tosh's version is so much better than the real one.

    Hobo With A Shotgun is gloriously bad and violent. If you like 70's exploitation gore, Rutger Hauer provides it in spades.

  7. Words heeded. I will skip this one.

  8. Um...just FYI: no, I did not watch these movies. I followed my own admonishment (the post was a flippant one rattled off after NEARLY downloading these flicks...however, I curbed my Scorpionic curiosity at the last second, something I've not always been able to do...).

    I HAVE watched Hobo with a Shotgun, but I'm a long-time Rutger Hauer fan and will watch most anything he's in. I didn't find the film all that repulsive, and actually thought the dude with the crossbow-noose-gun to be a fairly cool idea. That being said it certainly wasn't what I'd call "great cinema."

  9. I can't believe they actually greenlit the SECOND Human Centipede movie, much less the fact they're makingg a third.

    That being said, I hate horror movies, but every review I've read says even if you hate horror movies, go see THE CABIN IN THE WOODS. I'm guessing Joss Whedon hit this one out of the park.

  10. If you want to see an horror which makes you use your brain rather than sending you to the toilet, try some of Guillermo del Toro's movies, namely: Chronos, The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth. They are all in spanish, but they are dubbed in English. And they are uniformly WONDERFUL. This proves that you CAN make horror which thrills and tells you something, rather than being a pile of shit wrote only to shock.

    1. @ Antonio: I am a BIG del Toro fan and have seen most of his films, including all the ones you list (my Mexican wife hipped me to him years ago with Chronos). I was pretty excited when his name was attached to the upcoming Hobbit movies (though that appears to have fallen through at this point).
