When American tourists Lindsay (Williams) and Jenny (Yennie) break down in some German woodland, they are forced to seek refuge at the home of the mysterious Dr Heiter (Laser). Hoping to use the phone and get out of the rain, the two young women have no idea of the nightmare they've let themselves in for.

Waking hours later, the girls find they have been drugged and tied up in a makeshift hospital room in Heiter's basement. It is here the disturbed doctor explains to Jenny, Lindsay and Japanese tourist Katsuro (Kiramura) that his life's ambition has been to create a creature connected by a single digestive system - a human centipede - and they are his
unfortunate subjects.

In The Human Centipede, Dutch writer/director Tom Six has created one of the most talked about horror films of recent years. Not the goriest or the most graphic, the idea alone is enough to provoke nightmares, nausea and huge controversy.

Taking film-making to a new level of repulsiveness, the concept is, for better or worse, undeniably original. The set-up is fairly conventional, however, and hardcore horror fans may be disappointed that the torture is tempered with black comedy and caricature.
