The Human Centipede

Yes, I do realize that there is a musical on YouTube. However, that’s not stopping me from believing that a big budget, fully realized musical might very well be one of the greatest things I’ve seen in a while. I mean, let’s be perfectly honest and admit that this movie is pretty damn boring for the first 45 minutes. Nothing really happens and then suddenly BAM! Shit gets going! (kind of a pun?)

Picture, if you will, the Doctor singing maniacally while the centipede crawls around in front of him. Then, imagine a song where Katsuro is tormented at the thought of eating, not wanting to defecate into the ladies’ mouths. How about Lindsay mumbling a song while she’s stuck between the dead bodies of Katsuro and Jenny. I mean, I’m tearing up at the very thought of it.

Oh, and if taken on Broadway, when Katsuro poops into Lindsay’s mouth, the front rows of the audience get sprayed with raw sewage. Splatter Seating comes at a premium cost and sells out months in advance. Guaranteed.

Alright my lovely, demented readers, what horror movies do YOU think would make for a good musical? Let me know in the comments below!

      Agreed. Please no horror musicals… and damn did you have to separate this articles into 5 pages? You couldn’t fit 5 movies on one page? As if we haven’t seen the movies/trailers.

        Putting all five YouTube videos on one page would cause a lot of drag on a computer. We do it this way so that your computer runs smoothly. WE LOVE YOU AND CARE FOR YOU!!!

    Ok I have to admit the Jaws one is pretty fucking hilarious. A fucking singing shark I mean come on that’s piss your pants material right there. Bruce can have like Anthony Head singing for him in the RepoMan voice while he’s about to eat someone.

    i think i’m one of the very few gay men who hates musicals (GREASE i loved and i loved THE ROSE but that’s not really a musical per se). lol. just about all my gay friends like musicals (movies, Broadway plays, etc) and i WISH i did like them but i just find them hoakey. lol.

      I’m straight, I love music (which I guess must be pretty obvious at this point), and I can’t stand the vast majority of musicals. I just can’t stand how fake and orchestrated they are.

    @JonathanBarkan …Re-Animator the musical already exists : http://www.reanimatorthemusical.com/
    I love the idea of the Jaws musical and the camp counsellors getting killed every time they try to sing (which I wish would happen in most musicals).

      I absolutely loved Reanimator the Musical. Especially Jessie Merlin as Dr. Hill. Check out the beheading scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH4kiI4oTng

        I would love to check it out! If only I lived closer…

      And I should add that the musical was directed by Stewart Gordon.

    Excerpts from the Songs:
    Jaws: “Somewhere, beneath the sea…a killer shark is waitin for me” (Melody of “Beyond the Sea” obviously)
    Hellraiser: “Demons to some… Angels to Others !”; “What’s your pleasure, Sir, what’s your pleasure…”

    I absolutely LOVE these ideas, Jonathan, even though I’m not a big fan of musicals. The JAWS one keeps cracking me up – a singing shark! The Hellraiser one could really be something as well.

    Was not expecting to see the Human Centipede, that’s for sure.
