The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) Reviews

  • The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) could be the sickest B movie ever made. But that's why you may feel gripped by the horror of what you're seeing and the terror of what's coming.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • A lurid, splattery wallow in grime, blood and excrement.

    Andy Webster — New York Times

  • Dismal, nauseating and yet bizarrely artful...

    Michael O'Sullivan — Washington Post

  • All Six is going for, with the generous application of both hardware supplies to the skin and feces to the camera, is a tired commentary on his shallow talents: They're excremental.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Once Six's conceptual project becomes clear, his escalating audience-mocking torture is increasingly pointless.

    Karina Longworth — Village Voice

  • This is surely hell, as a godless Dante or Bosch might paint it.

    Kathleen Murphy — MSN Movies

  • It's everything that there was to loathe before and then some.

    William Goss — MSN Movies

  • The film is reprehensible, dismaying, ugly, artless and an affront to any notion, however remote, of human decency.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • More boring than stomach-churning, the film nevertheless contains scattered scenes and sequences so far beyond the tolerance of the squeamish that it can't be overstated.

    Robert Koehler — Variety

  • 'The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)'' is sick, disgusting and vile. It's also demonically funny, stylish and ingenious.

    V.A. Musetto — New York Post

  • Like the original, the most shocking aspect comes from the revelation that Six can actually tell a story.

    Eric Kohn — indieWIRE

  • I'm striving to maintain a neutral tone here because I think that's the best way to deflate this silly, clever, disgusting and ultimately meaningless project to a reasonable scale.

    Andrew O'Hehir —

  • Human Centipede 1 allowed for some lowball entertainment. Human Centipede 2 offers only sadism. Here's the best I can say about Tom Six: The man has managed to outdo himself, for better or for worse.

    Daniel Engber — Slate

  • Whatever gothic originality the first Human Centipede possessed is altogether lacking in this sorry follow-up.

    Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter

  • It's hard to tell whether [Six] made "The Human Centipede 2" to titillate his audience or to mock it. And after a while, it is hard to care.

    Christy Lemire — Associated Press

  • The film is in black-and-white so the gore doesn't spray quite as colorfully. But you'll still puke up a storm.

    Peter Travers — Rolling Stone

  • Six has in essence backed himself into a rhetorical corner, leaving as perhaps the only option for his next stunt something in which the filmmaker Tom Six winds up with his mouth surgically attached to his own anus.

    Mark Olsen — Los Angeles Times

  • Most children give up their poop obsession by age four. Tom Six still hasn't.

    Scott Weinberg

  • Martin may lack his role model's surgical skills, professional tools, scientific interests or concern with clinical hygiene - but in all his sick, sweaty grotesquery, Martin is us.

    Anton Bitel

  • The gratuitous and exploitative nature of the violence, coupled with very little story development and plot, makes for a film without any real purpose other to shock and appall.
