The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is a 2010 Dutch horror film written, directed, and co-produced by Tom Six. The film tells the story of a German doctor who kidnaps three tourists and joins them surgically, mouth to anus, forming a “human centipede,” a Siamese triplet. It stars Dieter Laser as the antagonist villain, Dr. Heiter, with Ashley C. Williams, Ashlynn Yennie, and Akihiro Kitamura as his victims. According to Six, the concept of the film arose from a joke he made with friends about punishing a child molester by stitching his mouth to the anus of a “fat truck driver.” Six also stated that inspiration for the film came from Nazi medical experiments carried out during World War II, such as the crimes of Josef Mengele at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

When approaching investors prior to filming, Six did not mention the mouth-to-anus aspect of the plot, fearing it would put off potential backers. The financiers of The Human Centipede did not discover the full nature of the film until it was complete. The film received mixed reviews from mainstream film critics, but it won several accolades at international film festivals. The film was released in the United States on a limited release theatrically on April 30, 2010. A sequel, The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), also written and directed by Six, was released in 2011.

Lindsay (Ashley C. Williams) and Jenny (Ashlynn Yennie) are two American tourists in Germany whom attempt to drive to a local nightclub when their car breaks down in the nearby woods. After refusing a ride from a dangerous looking truck driver, they walk through the woods looking for them when it begins to rain. They stumble upon a rural country house owned by a crazed surgeon named Dr. Heiter (Dieter Laser). Dr. Heiter pretends that he is phoning for them when he serves the two young women drugged water which upon drinking it they pass out. The women awake in a makeshift medical ward in the basement and witness Heiter informing a kidnapped truck driver (Rene de Wit) that he is “not a match” and killing him.

When the women wake up a second time, Heiter has secured a new male captive, Japanese tourist Katsuro (Akihiro Kitamura). The doctor explains to his three captives that he is a world-renowned expert at separating conjoined twins, but dreams of making new creatures that share a single digestive system. He describes in detail how he will surgically connect his three victims mouth-to-anus. After Lindsay fails in an attempt to escape, Heiter performs the surgery on his victims, placing Lindsay in the middle, Katsuro at the front, and Jenny at the rear. Before beginning the operation, Heiter explains to Lindsay that he had experimented with creating a ‘three dog’, also joined mouth-to-anus, which died shortly after surgery. Heiter tells Lindsay that the middle dog of his creation experienced the most pain, and as a punishment for her escape attempt she will become the middle part of his “human centipede”.

Once the operation is complete the doctor tries to train his centipede as a pet, and watches with great delight as Lindsay is forced to swallow Katsuro’s excrement. However, Heiter eventually becomes irritated after being kept awake day and night by the constant screaming of his victims and he soon realizes that Jenny is dying from blood poisoning caused by the surgery.

A few days later, two local detectives, Kranz (Andreas Leupold) and Voller (Peter Blankenstein), arrive at the doctor’s house to investigate the disappearance of tourists, Heiter decides to add them to his centipede as replacements for Jenny. Heiter fails in an attempt to drug the detectives, and they leave the house to obtain a search warrant.

  • The only thing is, don’t you think the film could benefit from some kind of character development that would allow the audience to empathize with the victims more? I don’t necessary hate the concept, but I hate that there seems to be that lack of storyline and other components to make it a gripping film. Any thoughts?

    • If it was a thriller film then yes but essentially its a horror film. Do you care about any of the teens that die in the Nightmare on Elm Street’s? Or any of them in Hostel?

      Horror = Gore or Shock so never really needs more than a flimsy back story hehe

  • You make a valid point. 🙂 Is it safe to say you’re a fan of these films? What did you think of the second one? Sorry to bug you I like getting more perspectives on things.

    • You’re not bugging me 🙂
      A blog and vlog is there to inspire comment and communication 🙂

      I havent seen the 2 or 3rd film but I am a horror fan and a general film fan tbh 🙂

      Whats your fav film?

      • My ultimate favorite film is, The Swimming Pool. However, my favorite horror film is, Hostel, I love Eli Roth. He’s amazing! I also like, Saw, I think it’s well done and has lots of backstory. What about you?

        • Battle Royale is an amazing film. Amazingly clever. Book of Eli.

          Fav horror films are probably the Scream, or Nightmare on Elm St’s.
