Human Centipede

After asking the question about if watching Human Centipede is a waste of time on Facebook, I had pretty good comebacks so far. I am very curious about this movie. I'd like to find it somewhere I want to watch it. So weird but it got an interesting concept

I did my recherches and here what I found as a critique. Pretty funny.

For a movie about an insane German doctor who sews several captured tourists mouth-to-anus, Human Centipede is surprisingly not very graphic. There aren't many stomach-churning visuals or graphic dismemberments, most of the gore takes place off-screen and is more implied than shown. Which is precisely the point at which your imagination kicks in and has the following train of thought: ”Wow it would really suck to have my mouth pressed up against someone's asshole for the rest of my life. I guess I would have to eat their feces. I feel like this movie is trying to do something with eroticism but I'm just not picking up on it.” Then reality grinds to a halt and you realize someone conceptualized, wrote, directed, financed, made costumes and effects, and distributed this movie. That means that many people spent the better part of a year going to work every day where they strapped three actresses together mouth-to-anus and were dead serious about it. That is much more disturbing than any torture porn this movie could have been.

So? Would you have the guts to watch it? :P
