Far more grotesque than the first Human Centipede - in fact, The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) could be the sickest B movie ever made.

Sick, disgusting and vile. It's also demonically funny, stylish and ingenious.

The Human Centipede gets longer (how long before it becomes The Human Millipede?) but the shocks will be familiar to anyone who enjoyed the first film. The 180 seconds or so of cuts needed to get it past the BBFC open up some plot holes but won't sweeten the pill for everyone else.

You want to tell Six that yes, we get it already. But then subtlety isn't exactly his thing.

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

The desire to eat someone's ass is almost always superficial; there's no thought of sustenance, and more sophisticated pleasures are usually imminent. Not so with The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence).

Washington Post

By Michael O'Sullivan
There really is no other movie on Earth quite like it. And that's including "The Human Centipede: First Sequence," the 2009 horror film on which this dismal, nauseating and yet bizarrely artful sequel is based.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Really, 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.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
The film is in black-and-white so the gore doesn't spray quite as colorfully. But you'll still puke up a storm. Not so much at the movie, whose shock value wears off quicky, but at Six, who seems to hate himself almost as much as his audience. Masochists will give the movie a thumbs-up, as long as their thumb isn't already up their ass.

Chicago Sun-Times

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