I've been holding onto this post for one solid week. I just haven't been able to push the "Publish" button, for fear of losing every single one of you, my Precious Readers. Just stay with me for a second, okay? I have to purge. There's this...movie. I truly don't think I'll be able to watch it (if it were even showing anywhere 'round these parts), but I have a weird fascination with the whole Evil Scientist thing...and "The Human Centipede" takes the cake.
"During a stopover in Germany in the middle of a carefree road trip 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 “the human centipede.”
Okay. THAT was a very tame synopsis of what this movie depicts. MILD, even. I'm really at odds with myself in terms of even posting a blog about this movie. Clearly, only the fringe-iest of the fringe will actually see this barfness. What I wanna know is, WHY am I so obsessed with this crazy thing? I can't stop watching the trailer or reading reviews...many of which are well, glowing! (Granted, most of the reviewers are freaky-assed horror "stans" (skalker-fans") of the genre.
For me, it all started with THIS:
"Water, Water, Every Hare"...Warner Brothers.
"If an INterestin' monster can't have an INterestin' hairdo...." This has been my FAVORITE Bugs Bunny cartoon since I was little. I used to want to BE the "E-villll Scientist" when I was a tiny girl watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. (Calling all Psych majors!) Then as an adult, "Ren and Stimpy" became my animated characters, but that's a whole 'nother story.
Seriously. Do NOT watch this movie trailer. Just DON'T.
Please don't hate me because I'm a freak. I swear I won't I won't see it. I won't. But if YOU do see it? Send me a well-thought out review.
