IFC Midnight announced today that Tom Six, the writer and director of The Human Centipede (First Sequence) and The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) will be participating in a live chat on Friday, January 27th at 7 PM EST while the un-cut version of the controversial horror film The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is available on Facebook's new Social Cinema. Viewers are now able to view some of the most gruesome and graphic scenes known in cinematic history! Users will be able to pre-order a ticket to the event Tom Six live. He will answer questions and provide commentary and insight into the making of the controversial film. The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence), along with its predecessor The Human Centipede (First Sequence), is available on Facebook for one-month before it hits its Blu-ray and DVD release on February 14th.
The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) was originally released by IFC Films on October 7th, 2011 followed by its Video on Demand premiere on October 12th. The film, a sequel to Six's original film The Human Centipede (First Sequence), focuses on a new villain named Martin (Laurence R. Harvey) who is a mentally disturbed loner who lives with his mother in a bleak housing project. Martin works the night shift as a security guard in an equally grim and foreboding underground parking complex. To escape his dreary existence, Martin loses himself in the fantasy world of the cult horror film The Human Centipede (First Sequence), fetishizing the meticulous surgical skills of the gifted Dr. Heiter, whose knowledge of the human gastrointestinal system inspires Martin to attempt the unthinkable.
The Human Centipede (First Sequence) opened in the Spring of 2010 and became a cultural phenomenon. It was discussed on shows including the primetime Emmys, South Park, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The first film featured an obsessed doctor who surgically joins his unsuspecting victims together, and was one of IFC's biggest on-demand successes of all time, while also continuously selling out midnight screenings nationwide. The original film premiered at Fantastic Fest in 2009, receiving the awards for Best Horror Film and Best Actor, and also took home Best Picture at the 2009 Scream Fest. The film also won Most Memorable Mutilation at the 2010 Scream Awards.
IFC Midnight is a sister division to IFC Films and Sundance Selects, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc.
