The Human Centipede – A True Story ?

The Human Centipede First SequenceA discussion at the dinner table today brought up the question of whether the film “The Human Centipede” was based on a true story or not, and this created a few reactions.

The youngest family member saying that it was, as a teacher at school said it was, whilst the oldest said it was not possible, otherwise he would have heard something about it in his long life span.

The details of this story are so horrific that it would definitely be well known if it had been true. But no trace of a true story of this nature can be found anywhere.  The Film makers have also been denied the right to use the words “based on a true story” in their advertising.

So, who was right ?

Tom Six (the Film Director) claims the initial inspiration came from an off-the cuff comment he made to friends one night, in which he suggested child molesters should have their mouths stitched “to the ass of some fat truck driver”.

The Film: The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

After their car breaks down during a storm in the German countryside, two young American women stumble upon an isolated villa.
Offering to call them a taxi, the villas owner Dr. Heiter, a retired surgeon, invites the girls inside with the promise of a glass of water and dry place to wait for help to arrive.
Too late they realize that there is something not quite right about their formidable host and the girls are plunged into a nightmare so bizarre that survival might not be worth the effort.
As the deranged Doctor explains his twisted vision, the two girls discover that they are soon to become closer to each other than even BFFs would ever want to be.
Heiters plan is to connect the two girls, along with a third person, a hapless Japanese tourist, to each other via their gastric systems in a daring bid to be the first person to create a Siamese triplet and bring to life the first sequence of a Human Centipede.
