If 'Jaws' made you afraid to go in the water, and 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' made you afraid to fall asleep, then 'The Human Centipede' will make you afraid of doctors, Germany, surgery, stitches, and generally just getting a little too close to another human being.
If 'Jaws' made you afraid to go in the water, and 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' made you afraid to fall asleep, then 'The Human Centipede' will make you afraid of doctors, Germany, surgery, stitches, and generally just getting a little too close to another human being.

'The Human Centipede' starts out like any typical horror film: two young women are heading to a party and get lost in the woods -- and this time the woods happen to be in the middle of Germany. A thunderstorm hits, and they run to the nearest house for shelter, which comes in the form of a demented surgeon named Dr. Heiter. The two unfortunate females turn out to be the missing links Dr. Heiter needs to complete his bizarre, horrific experiment: He plans to connect them -- along with another poor soul already trapped in the basement -- by surgically sewing them together through the gastric system to create the world's first Human Centipede.

If nothing else, you have to appreciate his ingenuity. We could say something more about this film, but after our first glimpse at the trailer, our stomachs are turning too much for us to put together a coherent thought.

'The Human Centipede' opens in limited release on Friday, April 30.
