The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010) is a Horror and Drama Film directed and written by Tom Six. The cast of the film are Akihiro Kitamura, Dieter Laser, Andreas Leupold, Ashley C. Williams and Ashlynn Yennie. The movie The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is under the distribution of IFC Films and MPAA rating as NR. The film begins with the antagonist, Dr Heiter (Dieter Laser), kidnapping a truck driver by the side of a road. Later, two American tourists, Lindsay (Ashley C. Williams) and Jenny (Ashlynn Yennie), arrive at Heiter's house as they search for help after puncturing their car tire. Heiter drugs the women and they awake along with the kidnapped trucker in a makeshift hospital ward in the cellar. Heiter informs the trucker that he is "not a match" and kills him. When the women next wake, they are joined by a new captive, Japanese tourist Katsuro (Akihiro Kitamura).
The doctor explains that he is a world renowned expert at separating conjoined twins, but dreams of creating new beings that share a single digestive system by joining separate individuals via their mouths and anuses. He explains that his previous experiment, a "3-dog", died. However, he explains how he will attach the three human subjects to each other to create a "human centipede". Once the operation is complete, the doctor begins training the three to perform tasks. Katsuro, as the front part of the centipede, refuses to do as he is told, and the doctor beats him. When Katsuro has to defecate, Lindsay is forced to swallow his excrement and the doctor watches with great delight. However, Heiter eventually becomes irritated after being kept awake by the constant screaming of his victims and realising that Jenny is dying from blood poisoning.
Two police detectives, Kranz and Voller, visit Heiter to investigate the disappearance of tourists in the area. After the detectives leave, Heiter informs his surgically-attached captives that Jenny will soon be replaced by two new parts. Katsuro stabs him with a scalpel and the "centipede" attempts to escape as Heiter crawls after it. Katsuro faces the doctor with a piece of broken glass in his hand and tells the doctor he "deserved" to become an insect, due to prior ill treatment of his family, and then commits suicide with the glass. At this point, the police break into the house and Heiter crawls away to hide in his swimming pool room. Kranz is shocked as he discovers Heiter's victims, and soon finds Voller dead in the swimming pool near an armed Dr. Heiter. Heiter and Kranz shoot and kill each other. Jenny finally dies from her blood poisoning, leaving Lindsay alone in the house, trapped between her deceased fellow captives.

The Human Centipede was included in several film festivals around the world, including the 2009 London FrightFest Film Festival Leeds International Film Festival, Sitges Film Festival and Screamfest Horror Film Festival. In an interview with JoBlo.com, Tom Six claimed that the 'buzz' surrounding the film led several studios to approach him with regard to distributing the film. IFC Films will distribute the film in 2010 with a simultaneous theatrical and Video on Demand release in the United States. The company has a history of releasing 'unconventional' horror films, having previously distributed the Norwegian 'Nazi-Zombie' feature Dead Snow and the surreal 2009 release Antichrist. The film will run in a limited theatrical release on 30 April 2010 in New York City and as Video on Demand on 26 April 2010.
The Human Centipede has only received a small number of reviews, based upon its showings at a number of film festivals. Among more mainstream publications, Total Film described the film as a 'disappointment' which 'proved itself to be a slow-moving, repetitive affair that has nowhere left to go by the hour mark.' Whilst Variety was critical of the film's lack of any form of 'social commentary', stating that "[it couldn't] be bothered to expand upon its unpleasant premise, inviting auds to revel in its sick humor by favoring Dr. Heiter... and characterizing the victims as shallow expendables". Due to the nature of the film, more attention has been given to the film by Horror blogs; among these, FEARnet gave the film a positive review, stating that it was 'a horror import that actually has the confidence and audacity to deliver something disturbingly different.' Cinematical stated that, whilst a potential cult film, 'all in all it's really not a very good film.'
However, in spite of negative reviews, the film won several awards at various international film festivals, including:
* Best picture at Fantastic Fest, Austin TX and Best Actor (Dieter Laser) in the horror category.
* Best Movie at Screamfest LA
* Best Movie at Sainte Maxime International Horror Film Festival
* Best Movie at Ravenna Nightmare Film Festival
* Best Ensemble Cast at South African Horror Film Festival
On 19 October 2009 it was announced a sequel, titled The Human Centipede (Full Sequence) has been planned for cinemas in 2010. 'Full Sequence' will supposedly include a centipede composed of twelve individuals. Six has said how it had always been his intention to make two Centipede films, with the first film existing to get his audience "used to the sick idea" in order that the second could be much more "nasty, with way more medical experiments" in a way that would have been "impossible" in the original, and would have "destroyed" any chance of the film being made.
