It follows a similar premise as the first film to adapt stories from EC comics but unfortunately they had to tone it down for a PG with still images...

The Indonesian state hired thugs to carry these tasks out and this is a dramatization of what happened in the past as well as the the reign of terror being continued in the present.
If this film doesn't bore you to death, you are not viewing it right. It's scary to see how the Indonesians idolized these gangsters with weird definitions (free man) as well as the celebration of violence as a justification of whatever means to achieve their fascist end. All I can say is, don't waste your time on this documentary with its twisted agenda or you will end up like me wanting to simply annihilate the God forsaken Indonesia as a whole.

Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice serves as another one of the psycho bitty genre popular at the time (thanks to Whatever Happened to Baby Jane and Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte). The acting was superb, it was awesome to see two old ladies fight in such a brutal manner. The twists were great too, complemented by the darkly humorous tone, Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice is a film worthy of viewing.

This inventive tale (at its time) was thrilling and effective to cash in on the fascination with cannibalism and the rejection of primitiveness.

Victor is a sex addict who cons people by faking choking to get sympathy money to pay for his mother's stay in nursing home, and he fell in love with the resident doctor.
Yeh, it was pretty funny, but it didn't have the same tone as the book and the message was lost in the film adaptation. I did have a few good laughs though!

The plot concerns a group of film-makers gone missing in the Amazon and the footage found that documented the last days of their lives when they encountered primitive tribes.
The main selling point was the iconic "human stake" scene that was so real that people thought it was a snuff film in Italy. Other than that, most of the violence were done to the animals. The make up and special effects were so incredible even by today's standard but the gore was pretty fake sadly. It's not a film that you would want to watch again.
Thank God this is the end for the human centipede franchise. The final… MoreThank God this is the end for the human centipede franchise. The final sequence featured a return of some actors from the previous films attempting to solve the incarceration crisis. First of all, majority of the film was spend on shouting and random acts of sex or violence, it was completely incoherent. I really didn't get any of the attempts to make this a black comedy (e.g. African clitoris, kidney sex, diarrhoea, etc), the film could have faired better if they didn't have to spend so much time on meaningless acts to make this a black comedy and go back to the real terror in the previous film.
Secondly, even the gore was gratuitously fake, you could have spent more on better gore since you already spend so much on hiring all the actors for the 500 strong human centipede (and human caterpillar). There was so much blood for no reason, it ceases to be scary when you just pour bucket of blood on characters. I had major problems with Tom Six's direction and writing, he promised to make a fairy tale but he ended up making a Grand Guignol, very disappointed.
It was enough to gross you out but other than that, it really didn't serve much purpose.

What's worse is that the film deals with a really morbid subject as well as a morbid plot. The gratuitous use of holocaust images was extremely rage inducing.
