This Human Centipede franchise just isn't my thing, but above is our first look at Human Centipede 3. There are no Human Centipedes present, but don't let it fool you. Apparently the movie will feature the longest Human Centipede yet, consisting of 500 people, and it will not include CG effects. It will literally be 500 poor extras with their faces locked in to other people's asses.
The photo features the star of the original film, Dieter Laser, walking through a room of caged prisoners. The star of the second film, Laurence R. Harvey, is also set to reprise his role in the third movie as well.
Tom Six is back to direct the movie, and this is what he had to say about it in an interview with EW:
“THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross. But it will be the most controversial one politically-wise. It will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical of the three. Parts 1 and 2 have a very European feel. Part 3 is very American with the highest budget, a big movie score, widescreen, and an XXL human centipede. It’s set in an American maximum security prison in the middle of the desert. Plot-wise I won’t share details yet but if you let your imagination run wild you might get ideas.”
He goes on to talk about Eric Roberts, who plays the Governor in the story, saying,
“Eric plays an a–hole governor. He is a great, underrated actor with a delicious, worn, malicious face. He was perfect for the part and a real gentleman. I love working with American actors and can’t wait to work with more famous American actors — if they have the b—s to work with me because some are scared to work with a sick European ‘horror’ film maker. I make ‘horrific’ movies, that’s true — but I don’t consider them as standard horror films. I think the genre with mostly masked killers or creepy ghosts on a killing spree is pretty boring and stupid.”
I still haven't been able to bring myself to watch Human Centipede 2. I'm sure one day I'll see it, along with the upcoming sequel. But today is not that day.
