The Fantastic Fest Reviews are rolling in...

...and they are none too flattering. One of my favorites so far (on says,

"Devoid of anything redeemable, The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence is an affront to mankind, and I hate Tom Six for its existence."

And from Scott Weinberg over at FearNet:

"With no point, no soul, and no reason to care, The Human Centipede 2 ends up as just another splatter flick that desperately wants widespread notoriety for its freakish disgustingness. Congratulations, it succeeds."

On the eve of the premiere of The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) at Fantastic Fest, I thought I'd get all y'all prepped with some of the finest handmade HC merch we could find. (Believe it or not, Etsy is a wealth of bizarre items).

Ready to cozy up for winter? Not without your own Crochet Human Centipede Scarf (shown right)!

You can also order up a popular Human Centipede necklace, tee shirt, or uh - hair? bow? It's plaid! And...classy.

And lastly, and possibly my favorite: The Human Centipede Amigurumi. I swear, I didn't make any of this stuff up.

I'm only wondering why Rich didn't get me any of these fine items for my birthday.*

*I am totally and completely kidding.

Human Centipede 2 - World Premiere in Austin

Fantastic Fest has been chosen as the site of the world premiere of The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence.  The Austin festival is expected to include director Tom Six in attendance.  This seems like a natural venue and fairly friendly audience for the film's official kickoff.  The whole day appears to be planned around the film's disturbing themes.
"The opening night party will be themed to the film, featuring live music from The Charles Edward Cheese band and an attempt to break the world's record for the longest human centipede conga line.  The Charles Edward Cheese Band is not only the most important force of entertainment in the universe, but is also Austin's leading all-animal semi-robotic rock group."
No reports are available on exactly what's involved in the "world record for the longest human centipede conga line."  Most sources report it's safest to steer clear unless you are confident you are going to be the head of the line.

HCNN reporters are expected to be in attendance in Austin for Fantastic Fest. Whether they'll be brave enough to enter the theater is still a matter of internal negotiations...

Human Centipede II - Full Sequence Teaser Trailer Announced

We'd like to offer an informed opinion on the recently announced teaser trailer for the sequel to Human Centipede.  But the folks in the HCNN newsroom at present are frankly afraid to watch it.  Under the theory that there are just some things you cannot unsee.  If you're dumber braver the trailer is below:

Seattle premiere of The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence

Hey Seattle! Listen-up!

In case you were worrying how long the wait would be until you could revel in the disturbing goings on of The Human Centipede II: Full Sequence we have the answer for you.  Landmark Theaters are nice enough to truck the film in for midnight screenings at the Egyptian theater on October 7th and 8th.  The performance is labelled "adults only" - so leave the wee ones at home.  One can only assume Child Protective Services will have a spotter at the door looking for families that think it's a good idea to bring the kids.  Who will be watching to document what sort of degenerates go themselves we're less clear on here at HCNN.
