'Human Centipede 3': Director Tom Six's company threatens to sue star Dieter Laser

Human Centipede star Dieter Laser might have to put his money where his mouth is. The gross-out franchise’s director Tom Six (pictured), through his company Six Entertainment, is threatening to sue the star of The Human Centipedand The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) for breach of contract.

“Because of the success of The Human Centipede, it seems that Mr. Dieter Laser’s ego has grown to laughably big proportions,” said producer (and Tom’s sister) Ilona Six in a statement. She continued that Laser “demand[ed] his own unacceptable script changes” and backed out of the role “only seven weeks prior to shooting.”

Bad news for Centipede fans: The suit will delay production on The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence), which was supposed to begin in May or June. Now principal photography will be pushed back until the fall. READ FULL STORY

'Human Centipede 2' no longer banned in Britain


Controversial horror sequel Human Centipede 2 will be screened in UK cinemas after all. In June, the British Board of Film Classification announced that it was refusing to give a certificate to the London-set movie — which stars Laurence R. Harvey as a parking garage attendant who attaches around a dozen people together to create the titular monstrosity — on the grounds that it was potentially obscene. But today the BBFC reversed that decision and granted Human Centipede 2 an “18” classification, after the distributors agreed to make 32 cuts.


'Human Centipede 2' director and star on their controversial sequel: 'It's NOT a Jennifer Aniston movie!'


Human Centipede franchise director Tom Six may make torture porn movies in which people are forcibly joined together rump-to-mouth. But even he has limits.

“I hate cheese, I hate it,” says the Dutchman, after ordering a fromage-free turkey club sandwich at a New York eaterie. “If I would be in a room alone with cheese, I would go crazy.” So cheese is his Human Centipede? “Absolutely! Especially the yellow sheets. Urggh!” READ FULL STORY

From 'Human Centipede 2' to 'Zombie Ass': Fantastic Fest organizer Tim League talks about this year's line-up

The still ongoing Toronto Film Festival may have boasted appearances from such cinematic luminaries as George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Ryan Gosling. But is it screening a film called Zombie Ass? It is not! To see that movie — and world premieres of a host of other horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and/or action movies — you will need to travel to Austin, Tx., which from September 22 once again plays host to America’s largest genre movie film festival, Fantastic Fest.

EW spoke with Fantastic Fest director, and Alamo Drafthouse cinema co-founder, Tim League for the lowdown on the (at times NSFW) mayhem. READ FULL STORY

'Human Centipede 2' trailer: Check out the first footage from the banned-in-the-UK horror sequel


This week has been like Christmas — for people who watch films in which folks are surgically stitched together mouth-to-tushie. Earlier this week, we debuted the first image from the banned-in-the-U.K. Human Centipede Part 2 (Full Sequence), writer-director Tom Six’s forthcoming sequel to last year’s deranged franchise-opener. And now comes the first trailer to feature actual footage from the movie, during which get to see more (a lot more, in fact) of the film’s villain, Martin.

You can check out the clip below. I would say “Enjoy!” but somehow that doesn’t seem to be quite the right word to use in this case…  READ FULL STORY

'Human Centipede II' director responds to U.K. ban: 'Shouldn't a good horror film be horrific'?


Director Tom Six has responded to the British Board of Film Classification’s announcement on Monday that it is refusing to give Human Centipede II a video classification because the horror sequel was “potentially obscene.” In an email to Empire magazine, Six sarcastically thanked the BBFC for both featuring plot spoilers on their website and for banning the film. The filmmaker continued, “Apparently I made an horrific horror-film, but shouldn’t a good horror film be horrific? My dear people it is a f—ing MOVIE. It is all fictional. Not real. It is all make-belief. It is art. Give people their own choice to watch it or not. If people can’t handle or like my movies they just don’t watch them. If people like my movies they have to be able to see it any time, anywhere also in the UK.”


'Human Centipede': Director Tom Six talks about the sequel, his plan for a threequel, and all those 'Centipede' parodies


The Human Centipede has proven to be a horror movie with, well, legs. This deranged and very NSFW terror tale — in which a mad scientist named Dr. Heiter stitches together three victims so they share a single gastrointestinal tract — was given a limited cinema release in the spring of last year. But since then, the movie has been referenced by Tosh.0, Stephen Colbert, 30 Rock, and most recently, South Park, whose season premiere featured the introduction of a disgusting new Apple product called the HUMANCENTiPAD. It has also been the subject of numerous Internet sketches — including a Funny or Die skit about a human centipede survivors group meeting — and has been turned into a full-length musical by Emerson College’s Chocolate Cake City Comedy Troupe. You can even buy a Human Centipede cat toy, which, like the film itself, boasts of being “100 percent medically accurate!”

“It’s really punk-rock,” says comedian Jon Daly, who wrote and starred in the Funny or Die sketch. “It pushed torture porn just one step further. It kind of took the Saw movies and went, ‘Oh yeah? Look what I can do. I’m going to sew people together and have them eat poop.’ My friends and I play a game that’s like ‘F—, marry, or kill,’ but with the Human Centipede and terrible celebrities. Like, if you’re human centipede-ing the Kardashians, who’s in the middle? Who gets it worst?”

But what does Human Centipede director Tom Six make of all this? And what future plans does the Dutch auteur have for the franchise? After the jump, Six talks about the growing impact of the film, and its forthcoming top secret sequel, the ominously titled Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence).
