The film is a noir sci-fi action thriller about a young woman recently released from a mental hospital, and continuing a treatment programme to rid her of her alternate personalities. She moves into a halfway house for mental patients where the residents begin to die at an unusual rate.
Alternate: The Siamese Burn is an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. And it works. Suki is down to her last unwanted identity. But now she’s losing time, and the machine is changing, doing something new. Something that’s going to turn her world inside out. And that unwanted identity… what do you do when it turns out to be you?
Shooting on Super 16, the film follows “Dylan White” who works as a cook in Baton Rouge. He is also in a solid relationship with his girlfriend “Brandy”. Things are great until strange events prompt him to seek out the truth about himself — following clues, Dylan discovers a dark past in New Orleans. Can he right his past wrongs and find redemption for his sins?

We are a product of our environment; psychological defects can be the result of how we grew up and the trauma we experience at a young age.
Borderline Personality Disorder: A condition in which people have long-term patterns of unstable emotions or pure rage, caused by sexual abuse or lack of communications in the household. Their behavior may reflect negative feelings of themselves or others.
Tom Six’s The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence is by far one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen; yes it has a lot of violence and gore, but the worst part to me is the fact that every single part of Martin’s personality can be diagnosed. His goal throughout this movie is to create a centipede out of 12 random people; to him this would be a beautiful master piece, almost a form of art. Martin, the villain in the film, is not always displaying random behavior; for the most part, he has a reason for every action taken and his personality is influenced by everything that he has had to endure throughout his entire life. This man is not insane; Martin is simply an example of how our environment can create pure evil. When fantasies are no longer an escape from reality, one must create a reality that reflects fantasy.

After wrapping up its New Orleans shoot earlier this year, Schism has released its first batch of stills. And at least one of these features star Vinnie Jones (Snatch, Midnight Meat Train) doing some menacing sh*t in a very Vinnie Jones way.
As previously announced on Bloody back in October, Schism was written by Adam Gierasch and his partner Jace Anderson (both who teamed for Night of the Demons and Autopsy), with Gierasch once again directing. Callum Blue (“Smallville”) and Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede) also star in in the picture. This is a dark indie thriller in the vein of Jacob’s Ladder.

Tom Six’s Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence has been banned by the Classification Review Board just three weeks after it made its Australian premiere at the Brisbane International Film Festival, says the Sydney Morning Herald.
Originally classified R 18+ by the Classification Board in May, Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence was refused classification by the Review Board on Monday with the review team decrying its “gratuitous, exploitative or offensive depictions of violence“, as well as its displays of cruelty.
The sequel to Tom Six’s 2009 film The Human Centipede: First Sequence follows a mentally unstable car park attendant who becomes so obsessed with the first movie that he copycats the original premise of sewing humans together into one “centipede”.
The unedited version of the film was originally cleared for classification in Australia, despite being cut for audiences in the United Kingdom after an initial banning.
All sides bitched and moaned, but ultimately it’s censorship. So, yeah. READ MORE
IFC Films‘ hotly anticpated The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (three reviews) is now slithering into your homes as the controversial sequel is available on iTunes, Digital Download and on SundanceNow.com.
In addition, we ask that you return to Bloody and write your own review. HC2 is one of the most controversial films of the year and everyone wants to know what YOU think!
The sequel tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film and who imagines putting the ‘centipede’ idea into practice. The film features a 12-person centipede (kinda). Tom Six directs this hilarious meta-gore film that’ll blow your mind. READ MORE
A 12-person centipede. The only information IFC Films and the producers are revealing is that this time there is a new villain on the scene named Martin, and that the premise is 100% medically inaccurate!
Details were scarce until the UK banning which revealed that the sequel “tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film and who imagines putting the ‘centipede’ idea into practice.” Read the official synopsis here.
European Director Tom Six has become the freshest face in the horror community to reach star status with his 2010 shocker The Human Centipede: First Sequence. In hyping the film’s now in post-production sequel, The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence, Six had used the “Disney” analogy stating that it would make the first “look like a Disney film.” It’s a strong statement considering how unnerving the first assembly was, which is probably why he’s already opting to use the exact same bold statement to hype up the end to the trilogy, currently in development.
Already banned by the British Board of Film Classification, Six had some more bad news for the BBFC: Human Centipede 3 is going to “make the last one look like a Disney film,” he tells Empire. “We’re going to shoot the third film entirely in America and it’s going to be my favourite…It’s going to upset a lot of people.”
The director also confirmed that part three would be the last of his Centi-series, in a stitch guaranteeing cinema its most extreme trilogy. Despite his protestations, Six was asked if he might feel a temptation to dust off the sandpaper for a fourth installment. “No. Never, ever.”
While I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, I do fear that Six may be taking the franchise too far. I am not a fan of torture films without a point (see Chaos and more recently Morituris). If Six opts to shock and awe by inflicting horrible pain on the film’s protagonists without any social commentary, I fear I’m going to be greatly disappointed in the man. Hopefully Full Sequence will see a release later this year and we’ll be able to dissect the “Centipede” a bit further…
This has been an insane few weeks for Tom Six’s hotly anticipated The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence.
It all started when the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) announced that it had rejected and was unable to classify the film for UK release, basically banning it. They issued a press release and included major plot points, while also crucifying the film in the public’s eye (for shame!)
Then we broke the full cast, which I’m sure didn’t make everyone smile.
Following that, Six had beautifully responded to the banning stating: “My dear people it is a f****cking MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not.”
The dramatic storyline continues to unfold as the UK distributor, Eureka Entertainment, responds to the banning with a iron fist. My honest opinion is that the public stoning is cause for a lawsuit, and I sincerely hope that Eureka (and U.S. distributor IFC Films) take on the BBFC for staining the film with the moniker of “tasteless and disgusting”, among other nasty words. Banning is one thing, but this is something much, much more — my perspective is that the BBFC’s release has “caused damages,” but that’s for the courts to decide.
I can only imagine how much is sucks to be director Tom Six right about now, although the dude should be exponentially proud that he’s become part of pop culture. No matter what the future holds, he will always be remembered.
But currently, this week to be exact, is sh*t. Not to mention that we revealed the entire cast early this morning, but the director’s The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence was outright banned by the UK BBFC. The boys over at Empire got word as to “why” this ruling was made, which included a full breakdown of the plot, while also slinging insults and insinuations at the Franken-franchise. Aren’t they supposed to be objective? Hypocrites.
Anyways, Six responded to the BBFC over at Empire: “Thank you BBFC for putting spoilers of my movie on your website and thank you for banning my film in this exceptional way. Apparently I made an horrific horror-film, but shouldn’t a good horror film be horrific? My dear people it is a f****cking MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not. If people can’t handle or like my movies they just don’t watch them. If people like my movies they have to be able to see it any time, anywhere also in the UK.”
Short, sweet and to the point. I give his speech an A+. Scream it with me: “FUCK CENSORSHIP!”
Having just been banned from the UK, Bloody Disgusting was able to exclusively dig up the official casting for The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence, which had been previously shrouded in secrecy.
Ashlynn Yennie, who also starred in First Sequence, will be returning to reprise her role of “Jenny” in Tom Six’s sequel deemed “100% medically inaccurate.”
Laurence Harvey will be playing “Martin”, the new mad scientist who will assemble the 12-person centipede.
Dominic Borelli, Vivien Bridson, Lee Harris, Peter Charlton, Bill Hutchens, Dan Burman, Daniel Jude Gennis, Kandace Caine, Maddi Black, Lucas Hansen, Georgia Goodrick and Emma Lock round out the cast.
Details were scarce until the UK banning which revealed that the sequel “tells the story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film and who imagines putting the ‘centipede’ idea into practice.”
The big question is: who is fortunate enough to be the “head’?
THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE is an unconventional – and medically accurate — biological horror film that enthusiastically explores territory that few filmmakers dare to tread. When two pretty American girls go on a road trip in Europe, they end up alone at night in Germany with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa, and awake the next day to find themselves trapped in a terrifying makeshift basement hospital. Their captor is the internationally respected Siamese twin surgeon Dr. Josef Heiter with a demented vision for mankind’s future existence. Dr. Heiter wants to remove human beings’ kneecaps so they have to exist on all fours and then surgically graft them mouth-to-anus to form a centipede chain. But when his victims give him more trouble than he expects – including unwanted attention from the authorities – Dr. Heiter is forced to decide whether to abandon his latest project, or protect it from the outside world – with their and his very lives, if necessary.
