    The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) could be the sickest B movie ever made. But that's why you may feel gripped by the horror of what you're seeing and the terror of what's coming.

    A lurid, splattery wallow in grime, blood and excrement.

    This wearisome sequel to the yucky cult shocker, by Dutch horror maestro Tom Six, brings the Human Centipede franchise straight to what can only be called its "Godfather 4" stage.

    This is tension-free torture porn, whose perpetrator's actions aren't just banal and consequence-free, they're endlessly justified by an abusive back-story.

    Dismal, nauseating and yet bizarrely artful...

    All Six is going for, with the generous application of both hardware supplies to the skin and feces to the camera, is a tired commentary on his shallow talents: They're excremental.

    Once Six's conceptual project becomes clear, his escalating audience-mocking torture is increasingly pointless.

    This is surely hell, as a godless Dante or Bosch might paint it.

    It's everything that there was to loathe before and then some.

  • David Edelstein New York Magazine (Top Critic)
    The movie is a reductio ad absurdum, a sick joke taken to extremes, beginning with a goof on the notion that horror movies inspire copycats and ending with a test to determine whether some people will watch anything.

    The film is reprehensible, dismaying, ugly, artless and an affront to any notion, however remote, of human decency.

  • Robert Koehler Variety (Top Critic)
    More boring than stomach-churning, the film nevertheless contains scattered scenes and sequences so far beyond the tolerance of the squeamish that it can't be overstated.

    'The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)'' is sick, disgusting and vile. It's also demonically funny, stylish and ingenious.

  • Eric Kohn indieWIRE (Top Critic)
    Like the original, the most shocking aspect comes from the revelation that Six can actually tell a story.

    I'm striving to maintain a neutral tone here because I think that's the best way to deflate this silly, clever, disgusting and ultimately meaningless project to a reasonable scale.

    Human Centipede 1 allowed for some lowball entertainment. Human Centipede 2 offers only sadism. Here's the best I can say about Tom Six: The man has managed to outdo himself, for better or for worse.

    Whatever gothic originality the first Human Centipede possessed is altogether lacking in this sorry follow-up.

    It's hard to tell whether [Six] made "The Human Centipede 2" to titillate his audience or to mock it. And after a while, it is hard to care.

    The film is in black-and-white so the gore doesn't spray quite as colorfully. But you'll still puke up a storm.

    Six has in essence backed himself into a rhetorical corner, leaving as perhaps the only option for his next stunt something in which the filmmaker Tom Six winds up with his mouth surgically attached to his own anus.

    The gratuitous and exploitative nature of the violence, coupled with very little story development and plot, makes for a film without any real purpose other to shock and appall.

    Rather than trying to entertain us, director Tom Six goes all out in an attempt to make us sick, to offend our very sensibilities. He has succeeded. And screw him for that.

    Mocks torture porn while being the worst form of it all at the same time, The Human Centipede II personifies what not to do with a sequel.

    It's not just graphic; it's contemptuous.

    It tries to be more disgusting, more outrageous than this idea of a 12-person human centipede. The result is, by design, absolutely no good.
