It follows the plight of two rather attractive females and some Japenese guy who unwittingly fall into the trap of a sadistic doctor who sedates them and subjects them to his perverted medical experiments.
The fun only starts here, the three are subjected to humiliation degradation on and torture beyond the comprehension of most humans when they are placed into a human centipede joined together from mouth to anus, the three of them connected by the same digestive tract. The gore is high impact stuff too and the "feed her" scene is one of the most harrowing displays of human suffering ever committed to film.
Obviously this is not for the faint hearted. There are some films that can't be unseen once you've watched them and this is probably one of the leading light in such films. As a movie it is captivating, well thought out and compelling, you actually feel for the victims and the cold bloodiness of Dr. Heiter (the Surgeon played by Deiter Laser) is delivered disturbingly well. I don't think many people could say its a bad film, its just too much for many people to take.
It's a tough one to talk about without ruining the film but I'll include the trailer here so you can judge for yourself if its something you want to see
Also one word of advice if you find this one too heavy going, do not attempt to watch Part 2, or part 3
