Summary: Please note, that in order to properly discuss this film, there will be some amount of spoilers to 'The Human Centipede: First Sequence,' which this follow-up is based upon. If you do not want a single aspect of that film spoiled, please skip ahead to the technical portion of this review. Also please note, that, much like its predecessor, 'The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence' is not a film for everyone.
Excerpt: I’ve come to the distinct conclusion that Tom Six is one of the most challenging directors working in the horror genre today. I’ve never had a director polarize my feelings for a film so intensely and now he’s done it twice. In my mind there’s no question that he’s a talented director. Honestly said, I’m not sure why it pains me so intensely to give him credit for his talent, but it does, right down to the marrow of my bones.
Excerpt: The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence is not a direct sequel to The Human Centipede: First Sequence although both were written and directed by the Dutch director Tom Six.

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) Movie Review
7 October 2011
Summary: Director Tom Six follows up his "Human Centipede" with a sequel, and to say it is torturous to watch is an understatement. However, while it is not as much fun as the original, it's a must see for the depraved.
Excerpt: When Dutch director Tom Six first brought The Human Centipede (First Sequence) to theaters and on-demand services last spring, its reputation preceded it.

Summary: Dutch-born writer-director Tom Six is a man of his word, and his promise to make a far grosser follow-up to his 2009 horror hit is more than fully realized in "The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence).
Conclusion: More gore? Yes. More feces-eating? Sure. More depraved sex? Absolutely. If that's all you're after, The Human Centipede II delivers. But that's all it delivers. In director Tom Six's films, people are reduced to fleshy bags of blood and shit--to put it as bluntly as he does--and as true as that may be on some fundamental level, his shock-auteur approach is too dim-witted to be of much interest.
