It’s all tricks and no treats this Halloween on World Movies, as we play the gut-wrenching horror hits The Human Centipede and The Human Centipede II ‚Äòfront to back’ for the first time ever on Australian television. This Halloween, confidently go where very few films have dared.
Thursday 31 October 8.30pm
The Human Centipede (Netherlands, 2009)
During a stopover in Germany in the middle of a carefree roadtrip through Europe, two American girls find themselves alone at night when their car breaks down in the woods. Searching for help at a nearby villa, they are wooed into the clutches of a deranged retired surgeon who explains his mad scientific vision to his captives’ utter horror.
They are to be the subjects of his sick lifetime fantasy: to be the first to connect people, one to the next, via their gastric system, and in doing so bring to life ‚Äòthe human centipede’.
Thursday 31 October 10.00pm
The Human Centipede 2 (USA, 2011) Australian Television Premiere
Martin is a disturbed loner who lives with his mother in a bleak housing project. He works the night shift as a security guard in an equally grim underground parking complex. To escape his dreary existence, Martin loses himself in the fantasy world of the cult horror film ‚ÄòThe Human Centipede’, fetishising the meticulous surgical skills of the gifted Dr. Heiter, who inspires Martin to attempt the unthinkable – this time with 12 people.
