"100% medically inaccurate"

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE) released in 2010 was hailed as one of the most twisted, stomach-churning movies of all time and became one of the most controversial and talked about films of year. It featured a demented surgeon who surgically joins his unsuspecting victims together via their gastric systems. The original idea was inspired by a conversation over what punishment would be appropriate for convicted paedophiles.

The storyline to Tom Six's much anticipated sequel THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 (FULL SEQUENCE) is largely being kept under wraps, but director Tom Six has revealed that the FIRST SEQUENCE is "My Little Pony" compared to the sequel.

THE FULL SEQUENCE was shot in London with an almost entirely British cast and will have a huge centipede with 12 people involved. "I think people will be blown away by 'part 2' because it's something they would never expect."

Tom has revealed that the tagline for the sequel is "100% medically inaccurate" but will not reveal whether any of the characters from the first film, are coming back.

Martin (Laurence R Harvey) is a mentally disturbed loner who lives with his nagging mother in a bleak London housing project, where loud neighbours and cramped living conditions threaten to plunge this victim of sexual and psychological abuse over the edge.

He works the night shift as a security guard in an underground parking garage, where customers and their vehicles come and go as he indulges his obsession with THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE) watching the film over and over on the small TV set in his office and meticulously examining the scrapbook he has lovingly filled with memorabilia from the film, including the mouth-to-anus surgery instructions made famous by Dr Heiter, the mad scientist from Martin's favourite movie.

Pushed to the brink by his harridan mother, haunted by the teasing voices of his abusive and incarcerated father, Martin sets into motion his plan to emulate Heiter's centipede by creating his own version, in a rented warehouse, which he begins to fill with victims, including a loud neighbour, two drunk nightclubbers, a prostitute and a lecherous john, and several more ... including Martin's piece de resistance, one of the actresses from THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE).

Except that Martin lacks the surgical skill, medical instruments and operating theatre necessary to create a larger centipede in the image of Dr Heiter's masterpiece. So he makes use of materials at hand: duct tape, staple gun, household tools and a fanboy moxie.

What follows is one of the most harrowing and terrifying films ever conceived, featuring a central character that makes FIRST SEQUENCE's Dr Heiter seem downright cuddly in comparison. THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FULL SEQUENCE) is a triumph in biological horror by one of the new masters of the horror film.
