“THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE” (2010)
All concept, no payoff. Routine in the extreme, there’s virtually nothing to distinguish this film from the myriad other bad “Texas ChainsawMassacre” rip-offs. You know the drill. Teens get lost, run afoul of a none-do-well, blah, blah, blood is shed. The only difference this time is that they end up in a rather peculiar predicament. And if you don’t know what that is by now, which rock are you living under, exactly? I digress. Bad acting, bland, point-and-shoot direction, questionable character motivation (understatement of the century) = lousy movie trying way too hard to be shocking and failing miserably. Sitting through it is akin to being the middle section of the film’s centipede.
So, there you have it. Three incredible films and three lessthan-incredible ones to relish or regurgitate this Halloween season. Enjoy!
