Quint here with a tiny update to Nordling's story. The below teaser trailer for the next Human Centipede movie is pretty great, a modern version of the great '70s "reaction" teasers and TV spots that would catch people coming out of early screenings and get an immediate reaction. Well, now you don't need to catch people coming out of theaters, you can just roll around a van with a Blu-Ray and some headphones and catch the ACTUAL reaction. Although, some of them look pretty staged, but so were many of the reactions in those great '70s schlock exploitation spots, too.
The clarification is that this is indeed the Australian version of the film's trailer, which oddly nods to the US release being cut. I hadn't heard that before. Australia looks to be getting the full uncut version, but us in the US will be protected from the big bad Tom Nix by our lovely and wonderful censors. I mean, it's not a censorship board, it's the MPAA... and they always say they're not censors, yet somehow the only way some of these films can come out is if they're cut to ribbons... but it's not a censorship board. Remember that. They say it so it must be true.
So, lucky you, Australia! Looks like this movie is upping the disgusting a couple hundred times from the first sequence, which I can't really process through my grey matter at the moment. What do you think?
The makers of THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 are taking the banning in Great Britain and running with it, judging from this teaser. I would too - the best exploitation films craved such publicity, even welcomed it. I think the only thing that upset Tom Six about it was how much they spoiled the plot.
I still haven't yet seen the first film. I have the distinct feeling I need to see it fairly soon, considering Fantastic Fest is coming in a couple of weeks, and I want to be ahead of the curve. It can't be that bad, can it? Anyway, here's the teaser to the second film:
Spring? I thought it was opening sooner. Heh heh, "opening." Nordling, out.
