Holy sh*t does AFM make for an insane news week here at BD. Not only is this a busy time of year in general, but you’re adding into the mix an event in which hundreds of new horror titles – some big, some small, some that will never get made – are announced.
If you’re truly into all of the minutiae, feel free to enter AFM ’13 in the above search bar. But if you don’t have time, I figured I’d collect some stories you may have missed (stuff that might have been pushed off the page in a matter of hours) during this high volume week. A lot of it is AFM, but there’s also some other stuff that may have flow by you as well.

We received a statement this morning from The Human Centipede producer Ilona Six explaining that production has been delayed on The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) as they prepare to do legal battle with franchise star Dieter Laser (pictured left).
“Tom Six’s company will sue Dieter Laser,” she tells Bloody.
“Because of the success of The Human Centipede, it seems that Mr Dieter Laser’s ego has grown to laughably big proportions. First signing the contract and rating the THC3 script as fantastic, and then demanding his own unacceptable script changes, and now refusing to play the part only seven weeks prior to shooting.
Six Entertainment Company will start legal action against Dieter Laser. Tom Six says not to worry – principal photography will be postponed and will take place later this year.”
Principal photography was to begin this May in the States, with Laser and Laurence R. Harvey both returning in starring roles. Laser played the evil German surgeon “Dr. Heiter” in First Sequence, while Harvey played the creepy “Martin” – a man obsessed with Six’s first film – in the sequel Full Sequence. Franchise director Tom Six will play an unknown supporting role in what they’re calling “100% politically incorrect.” Six recently revealed that he’s working on a 500-person centipede. YIKES!
*Editor’s Note: The opinions and statements of Ilona Six are not those of Bloody Disgusting. Not to mention that we don’t know if this is a brilliant publicity stunt or not. We’ll play it safe… READ MORE
While most people crucified the filmmaker, I was a pretty huge fan of Tom Six’s The Human Centipede 2 (read the review), a film that had the balls to say “f*ck you” to every hater out there (even though I still think directors need to stop reading all of the negative comments and feeling the need to respond to the hate). I think the most exciting part of the sequel was the “out-of-the-box thinking”, where Six takes viewers outside of the initial film and then into what he deems the “real world.” This leads us to the Final Sequence…
While Six has kept plot details under wraps, Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that both Dieter Laser (pictured above left) and Laurence R. Harvey will return in The Human Centipede Part 3 (Final Sequence), both in starring roles. Laser played the evil German surgeon “Dr. Heiter” in First Sequence, while Harvey played the creepy “Martin” – a man obsessed with Six’s first film – in the sequel Full Sequence.
The real head-scratcher that’s got my interest piqued is that writer-director Tom Six himself will play a supporting role in the film! I think we’re about to go super-meta!
Principal photography will begin this May in the States. The film will be released in 2013, presumably by IFC. It is also confirmed that Final Sequence will actually be the last film of the Human Centipede trilogy.
The American finale will be 100% politically incorrect.
The Human Centipede Part 2 (Full Sequence) is now available uncut on DVD. READ MORE
