Delivered to us by writer/director Tom Six, and dubbed, “100% Medically Accurate”, The Human Centipede introduces us to a consistently non-smiling psychotic German surgeon who drugs and traps two vacationing American girls, (who are pretty dumb, even by horror movie standards) and an unlucky Japanese man in his giant, creepy German surgeon home, complete with a convenient giant, creepy German operating room in the giant, creepy German basement.
It’s no-holds-barred as he proceeds to play out his twisted desire to surgically attach them in the most uncomfortable of positions, via one joined digestive track to create what he titles, “The Human Centipede”, connecting all three of them, you guessed it– mouth-to-derrière. It’s the perfect last first date movie …well if your sweetheart works full-time at a carnival freak show, or if every other movie is out of stock at Blockbuster.
As a horror film it was crude, vile, slightly brilliant, and mildly offensive to centipedes. Not to mention, the trailer, with its deletions and re-additions, has pulled in nearly a combined 25 million views on YouTube. Good job you sickies…
Not one to rest on his stomach-turning laurels, Six revisited the Centipede world, with your mom’s favorite film of 2011, The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence). Originally banned in the UK, Australia and New Zealand upon release, this film, now deemed, “100% Medically Inaccurate”, was a revolting black-and-white tour de force of depravity, twisted humor, blood and guts, and the crème de la crème– a centipede one dozen people long. That’s like the entire Brady Bunch family, Alice, Sam the Butcher, AND it still leaves room for two more. Let’s not mince words, that’s a lot of rectal surgery. In Six’s irony-free words, the grotesque sequel was created to make the first film “feel like My Little Pony” in comparison.
And because all good things come in threes, 2014 will bring us the long-awaited final piece of the detestable trilogy, The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), set in a prison, featuring a rumored FIVE HUNDRED PERSON centipede and most horrifyingly of all, starring Eric Roberts. In an interview with DreadCentral.com, Six gleefully promises the repugnant finale, will “make the last one look like a Disney film.” and “(is) going to upset a lot of people.”
Not surprisingly, you probably want to send the kids to bed early before snuggling in with your sweetheart and a freshly-popped bag of popcorn to sit down and enjoy. The audience for The Human Centipede films are mostly limited to horror hounds, gore lovers, and the kind of people who will peek under their Band-Aid to see how icky the gooey cut on their knee actually is.
Best part is, if you can keep your lunch down while watching such wretched films, well then you’re gonna have plenty of room for delicious, sweet, sweet dessert.
Well, unless the baker happens to be a big Centipede fan as well…
This brownie gem is a creation by Alice Rose Cakes & Cookies, your go-to bakery for all your messed-up surgery baked goods.
Just remember, dragging your feet on this gem will ruin your meal. Better be fast to get some, those who are late to the party end up with the red digestive track to eat.
Hey Alex, I hate to be the one to tell you this… your friends hate you. I don’t even wanna imagine where the candles go in this thing.
SPEND THIS CHRISTMAS WITH THE HUMAN SANTAPEDE!
Little known fact*: In the original rendition of the English Christmas carol, “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, dating back to the 18th Century, there was an extra day penned on to the end of the listed group of days, totaling the amount to its original title, “The Thirteen Days of Christmas”.
After long thought, it was felt that due to the unlucky connotation of the number 13, the day should be dropped, thinning down the song to it’s now classic 12-day roundup, full of gifts of birds and dancing ladies.
Some other historians believe the real reason the song was thinned from its original baker’s dozen was because of this line in the song:
“On the thirteenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… a gingerbread Human Centipede.”
*This fact is total crap.
GET READY TO TOSS YOUR COOKIES…
I bet these were a pain in the butt to make.
WHAT A HALF-BAKED IDEA
Upon first glance, you may think these graphic cookies look trashy, but please note the curled-ribbon in the corner. That makes them fancy. Like the kind of Centipede cookies the Queen would nosh on.
I’D RATHER BE MUGGED…
You’d be surprised how fast Starbucks ran out of these collector’s mugs. Don’t be shocked when your coffee tastes like crap though.
THIS JUST TAKES THE CAKE!
Straight from the Cake Boss‘s ovens to your taste buds, this cake will make your sweet sixteen even sweeter.
Games to play at this birthday party:
- “Pin the Tail on the Person You’re Surgically Attached To”
- “Awkward Musical Chairs”
- “The Human Centipiñata“
- “Barfo Polo”
Quick! Do the humane thing and put the sad middle and end pieces of this cookiepede out of their misery.
WELL, THIS STINKS.
To you and me, this may look like the worst cake ever made in the history of mankind, but for a better idea, let’s go to the horse’s mouth and ask Birthday Boy, Mark Mallman, what his thoughts were on this unique cake:
– “I got three bites in before I vomited. It was the best birthday ever!”
– “The wood was certainly not edible. I don’t understand why they used wood on a cake.”
– “I thought these were the Rugrats characters, thank God for the ‘Human Centipede Birthday Cake’ label on the cake to clear that up.”
– “I don’t know why my friends call me by my first AND last name.”
WELCOME BACK HOSTESS!
Woody Harrelson’s rough-and-tough character, Tallahassee, braved a nation of flesh-craving, undead cannibals, searching for the simple spongey deliciousness of a Twinkie in the hit comedy, Zombieland.
The tragic fate of this Twinkiepede would surely have brought a tear to ‘ol Tallahassee’s eyes.
AND NOW, HUMAN CENTIPEDE BAKING WITH MARTHA STEWART…
“Hello friends. Today, we’re going to take a page out of my new cookbook, “Heinous Baking with Martha”, creating everyone’s favorite surgically screwed-up dessert. If it’s October, then it’s time to fill your home with the sweet aroma of our Human Centipede cupcakes.
– First, make sure you iron your cloth napkins. A Human Centipede cupcake on a wrinkled napkin just won’t do. Don’t forget to polish your silverware as well, if you can see your reflection in it, your guests can see their smile as well.
– A lit candle with the wafting smell of cinnamon will fill your home with an autumnal aroma, a treat for your guests.
– Now, we’re going to use a fresh-made buttercream for our Centipede heads. My secret? Just a pinch of almond extract will make your mouth-to-tush baked treats the ones all the Trick-or-Treaters want to bite into this All Hallows’ Eve.
– Soft Red vine licorice will supply the touching look of dread we’re looking to place on these cupcakes.
– Now, we can’t forget the delicious shared digestive-track, can we? A simple line of licorice straight through the cake of all three will do the trick.
– Place your disgusting doomed treats on a hand-cut ornamental doily, and your ghoulish guests will be smiling all through the night.
Join me next time, as we make my famous fruity Evil Dead blood punch with a garnish of fresh-picked celery stalks. “
