It has a dark and horrific theme that may not go down well with the majority of viewers. The flick has been directed by Tom Six and narrates the gruesome experiment of a German doctor who abducts three tourists and performs an unheard of operation in the trio joining them surgically from mouth to anus. This is what he calls the human centipede.

The film has been shown in a number of film festivals around the world where it has got mixed reactions. Reportedly, a sequel to the film is in the making which is scheduled to released the next year. The DVD and Blu-Ray version of the film is going to be released in October this year. The critics have tagged it as a horror comedy. The director had a tough time in finding the cast of the film as a number of actresses rejected the role with disgust. The director wanted the film to look medically accurate and hence sought the assistance of a Dutch surgeon for filming and the pre-production phase. The result is quite incredible.

The extensive use of bandages helped the director to make an illusion of centipede and create disturbing imagery. There are small time actors in the film and the director had a tough time finding investor owing to its disturbing and crude theme. It is a horror film that is difficult to categorize.
