Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The problem is that this slick piece of schlock is dull, risible and, ultimately, boring."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"There are terrible movies and there are loathsome movies. And then there's that rare breed so idiotic, exploitative and sickening one wishes they could be scrubbed from memory."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"Six seems, at some point, to have said to himself, It might be theoretically possible to sew a mouth to an anus and sustain life. Someone should dramatize that, and then he did."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The evocative title, the lack of motive and the absence of genre tropes are completely intentional -- Six is giving us what we want, reminding us all the while that getting exactly what we want is usually the last thing we should ever really have."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Yet despite the disturbing subject matter, Six directs the film with surprising restraint. You won?t find any handheld shakycam, excessive gore, or fast-cutting here."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"This horror show from Dutch director Tom Six will be heaven for devotees of four-star torture porn and zero-star hell for everyone else."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It would be nice to report that Six ... has an eye for horrific imagery and a head full of fresh ideas - or, barring all that, that he's simply a hard-working hack. But this is lazy moviemaking based on the thinnest of concepts."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"I's at times heart-racingly tense, less gory than you'd expect, hilarious, horrible, and not like anything else you've ever seen."
‑ Dave White,
"The Human Centipede won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if you're willing to sit through the film's gory moments, and delve deeper into the narrative, there's something genuinely enthralling about this shocker."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"These folks -- both in front of and behind the camera -- really threw themselves into their work, and, provided you have an open mind, it shows."
‑ Ross Ruediger,
"A film that, in bare description, sounds like the greatest outrage ever put to screen, but ends up being fairly tedious when watched."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"The star rating system is unsuited to this film. Is the movie good? Is it bad? Does it matter? It is what it is and occupies a world where the stars don't shine."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Deep down it's just more torture porn with an artistic gloss..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The film deserves some points for being sickening and over the top."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"There is a tradition among mad scientists who exhibit creativity with their victims that comes down to three little words: some assembly required."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
