From meager low-budget beginnings, The Human Centipede has become a bit of an underground sensation. The film had its US premiere at last year's Fantastic Fest and took home the Best Horror Feature award as well as Best Horror Actor for Dieter Laser. Featuring a deliciously demented premise replete with a basic line drawing diagram that more than gets its point across, The Human Centipede has had people up in arms before even laying eyes on the film. Well it's time for the horror to come home and while IFC will be releasing it on DVD and Blu-ray here in the states, our friends across the pond will once again have a chance to snag a cooler version.

Available exclusively from The Human Centipede store (no, I'm not kidding) will be a Blu-ray/DVD combo version of the film housed in a steelbook case. Steelbooks are those metal cases that you can sometimes find at Best Buy and they have a following of collectors. Even if you're not specifically a steelbook collector, they're still pretty cool. But that's not the best part. The best part, by far, is that when ordering the steelbook edition from The Human Centipede store, you'll also get a plain white t-shirt featuring that awesome line drawing diagram, so you can show friends who ask exactly what a human centipede entails!
The reservation page on the store site doesn't mention the t-shirt, but we got the heads up from the fine folks over at High Def Digest who have a picture of the t-shirt. Head over there to check out their info. Obviously be aware that a UK release may be region locked. The Human Centipede hits DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on October 4th and will be available here in the States on October 5th.
