Most people who heard of the premise or saw the trailer for THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE probably assumed it was a sick joke. But no, Dutch director Tom Six really has made a horror story about a pair of airhead Americans that stumbles across a deranged surgeon. The evil doctor's new obsession is to attach people to create a "human centipede" -- I won't go into the particulars, but let's say it's similar to that old joke that goes, "Do you have a match?" "Yeah, your face and my butt." Strong-stomached critics assert that on a technical level, it's a competent film, and the Plaza Theatre has booked it for the bravest movie-goers among us.
