In this meta-horror film Martin is a disturbed loner who's long suffered from mental abuse from his mother and sexual abuse from his father. Martin works an imaginably boring job in a parking garage where most of his down time is spent in bondage type masturbation to Tom Six's infamous horror film The Human Centipede. Martin's love of the film goes beyond that of the typical insane horror fan (shout out to myself and others) and he has a dream of creating a human centipede of his own, using twelve people. It isn't until Martin kills his mother though that he seeks out to pursue his dream and in a ghastly attempt captures twelve random strangers. Where Dr. Heiter had the surgical skills and operating room to achieve his dream all Martin has is an empty warehouse and Heiter's kindergarten drawings from the film. In a brutal, graphic, and explicit final twenty minutes Martin creates a human centipede in a grisly conclusion.
Please, excuse me for the socially inept term but this film is retarded. Interesting how it reflects that of its main character Martin, it's a little tragic, a little disturbing, a little boring but ultimately is challenged. Tom Six's sequel to his infamous first film is in likes to nature of being a social commentary, it's about the fans of the first who called to derogatory comments of masturbation and obsession but also to the skeptical horror fans who felt it was too tame for it's hype. Six isn't shy in showing you everything, and then some. Maybe it was the poor use of special effects or the spoilers I read beforehand but I felt I saw through the grim of the film and saw for what it really was, nothing. That's not to say it wasn't graphic and unneccessary and I have no shame in saying I looked away for a good portion of the shit scene but it was all just...well fake. In that it holds to its tagline, 100% Medically Inaccurate, as besides the amateur approach to the medical stuff which I'm sure would kill most from shock he hits all his victims hard enough with a crowbar that I'm sure they'd die, if not then the second hit.
Yet it is effective. I felt wrong and nauseated after its ending. It resembles the creed of a homemade snuff film and even now I feel unease having it on my blog, as if it's tainting it or making it dirty. While I found The First Sequence to be good, only in originality and camera work, I find that The Full Sequence to not be good but had the potential from the first simple thought. Maybe my biggest issue with Tom Six as a director and writer is he has the ability to create horror films with depth and an artistic touch but goes for the shameful gore and tits show. The Human Centipede 2 is just one of those films that I cannot tell you to watch but it is iconic, it's part of this generation of horror, and it does what those who bitched about what the first film didn't, it goes there. However no plot and a single character developed doesn't surpass the grotesque latter half which isn't horror but rather just shoddy. Maybe its to say that you can achieve your dreams with a little duct tape and a staple gun? I don't know, it's not something I can recommend but it is what it is. Your decision.
