Another question is: 'If films are for entertaining people, what can you say about The Human Centipede 2?' I'm not sure how I would classify it, it looks like a film, but, unless people like seeing extremely graphic images of people being cut up and dissected and turned into a human centipede I wouldn't class that as entertainment. The first one sounded and looked horrific enough, why a sequel?(Original post by Craig_D)
I watched the first film, I've just watched the trailer. My reaction is not fear or disgust, it's just 'why?'. I've never really had this reaction to a film before and so I don't really know how to explain it. The idea of mutilating humans into one big 'insect' is such a cheap shock.

I agree entirely! It was bad enough that the first film hinged on that single shock, but to make two films out of it is just lazy. The sequel is redundant because it does nothing that the first film didn't do, except make the centipede bigger and throw sexual gratification into it. What's next (because he said previously that he wants to do more), a centipede that actually includes 100 people, then a 1,000, where does it end? The idea increasingly ceases to have purpose because the audience are already desensitised by the previous film(s). It has a complete lack of plot, development, decent dialogue and exists for a single purpose, which it terms of artistic merit makes it more comparable to a porn film than a traditional horror.
And I swear, traditional horror films nowadays have just been turned into a mass of blood and gore splattered everywhere. I wouldn't call that scary, I'd call that severely squeamish and horribly pathetic. I remember hearing about films like Psycho, The Birds, Nightmare on Elm Street...whatever happened to the chilling climaxes, the mass of tension, the unpredictability, and wasn't centred on blood being spilt and guts thrown everywhere?
I am going to say the same for Saw and Final Destination. They both have a long line of sequels, but there's not much you can do about with them...the plots run thin after a while and just end up filling the gaps with decapitations and blood and gore on the floor which have no meaning whatsoever.

Why do people want to watch this rubbish anyway? Do they have some abnormal thoughts themselves?

Whilst I wouldn't go so far as to accuse people who watch 'torture-porn' films as in some way disturbed, I can't fathom why they'd choose to go and voluntarily go and watch this in their spare time.
