The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) Review

Image for The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)

A maniac prison warden contacts the director of the previous Human Centipede films to help him make a 500 strong centipede of his inmates to improve discipline.

★★★★

The finale of Tom Six’s The Human Centipede trilogy is the kind of film that defies star-rating logic. For the closing chapter this teams the stars (Dieter Laser, Laurence R. Harvey) of the earlier ‘sequences’ as new characters, a maniac prison governor and his sweaty minion (think a resoundingly evil Abbott and Costello) who consult Six (wittily playing himself) for a centipede-related solution to their inmate discipline problem.

Violent, profane, scurrilous, obnoxious, hilarious-if-you’re-in-a-weird-mood and so self-aware it’s nearly beyond criticism, this fuses the shock tactics of avant-garde drama with ’70s exploitation. Like it or not, Six has contributed something fresh and demented to pop culture.
