The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) - Review

After watching THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 (FULL SEQUENCE), which I remain you is a movie about a guy who watches THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE), and being pestered by political pressure, an assholish prison warden (Dieter Laser) accepts his accountant's plan to create a real-life human centipede out of the overpopulated residents of the George W. Bush Penitentiary. Tom Six's third entry in his sick and twisted body horror franchise is another exercise in pathetic satire and hollow shock factor. Certain to skyrocket up the Worst of the Year list, this unbearable long sitcom shot like a porno is nothing more than 102 minutes of a German man screaming out every single line and slur, partaking in disgusting behavior, and being a complete buffoon for the amusement of no one. Laser was actually really good in the first film, expertly handling the tropes of the mad scientist stereotype and bringing some great black comedy at the right moments. In this film, however, he is an ungodly nightmare, wiggling around and shouting his lungs out in every scene as if he was a homeless man who walked in on a studio taping. Six is a complete shit show here, both for his non-acting small role as himself and his "creative" handling. All of the shots are overlit, the editing is completely jumbled up, the all-around acting is extravagant, and the script is woefully bare beyond moments of extremities. I should be be royally pissed off by this atrocity but I'm way too smart to be suckered in by Six' arrogant ways. This concluding chapter and wannabe takedown on the Iraq War is exactly like its repugnant preceding film: a cinematic display of a schoolyard kid eating worms.
