You thought Tom Six had gone as far as he could with the first teaser from the Centipede Threequel? Haha, once again the film maker laughs in the face of his critics and brings us even more bizarre horrors in the full trailer. How many trailers nowadays begin with a prisoner being waterboarded, but with hot water? None, okay now, one. We get to see more of Laurence Harvey’s brilliant turn as the loyal sidekick to Dieter Laser’s manic prison officer, along with Eric Roberts and Tiny Lister (Zeus from WWE) and also see our favorite director make his appearance, playing himself.
Another great day for fans of the twisted dark side of cinema as Tom Six shares the astounding poster for the final part of The Human Centipede trilogy. Starring Dieter Laser from the first film and Laurence Harvey from the second (both playing new characters), the film features a staggering 500 person centipede as shown on this great 100% Politically Incorrect one sheet. Bring it!
The short film Call Girl impressed horror audiences with its strange and dark stance, helped out by a superb performance from Laurence R Harvey which disturbed just as much as his stellar turn in Tom Six’s Human Centipede 2. Now the story comes to another medium, thanks to Japanese animator Daiju Kurabayashi who has created a comic book set to bring the story to a whole new audience, as well as the cinematic fans. What’s more, the comic is free, downloadable from the link below.
Harvey comments on the site: “I love the way Kurabayashi-san opens up the story and makes this his own by conjuring up a wider narrative than that of the short film. I got a big kick out of that!”

Eat. Digest. Repeat. Tom Six is being too good to us this week, first giving out the release date for the third in the Human Centipede series and today he tweeted the official teaser trailer for the threequel and it looks as twisted as the first two, with some ultra bad taste humour thrown in. Laser and Harvey return with new characters and Eric Roberts and Tiny Lister aka wrestler Zeus join the team as the action moves to the worst prison in the world, where anarchy reigns until they come up with an idea to make the prisoners suffer and yes, you know what
that is. TICKET PLEASE.
What a day to be a horror fan as Tom Six finally puts us out of our misery and announces that his forthcoming conclusion to the Human Centipede trilogy will arrive in US cinemas and on VOD services on May 22nd, meaning we are just a month and a bit away from seeing Dieter Laser and Laurence R Harvey chew up the big screen with epic performances, though they are both playing new characters in this part. We also learnt via his excited tweets today that original star Akihiro Kitamura will be returning too, no word on who he is playing yet.
The story this time revolves around a prison warder played by Laser who works in a terrible environment of riots and cannot keep his staff and does not get the respect he believes he deserves from the state governor, played by Eric Roberts. All of his ideas to keep the inmates in line fail until his sidekick Dwight (played by the brilliant Harvey) comes up with using the idea of the Human Centipede movies (another brilliant meta idea) to cut down costs and gain respect. Suddenly those who commit crime will no longer merely be placed in a cell, they will be placed in a pede,with these two mad men creating a 500 person centipede – 100% not medically accurate. YES.
Harvey’s performance in The Human Centipede 2 remains one of the best and most chilling of recent years. He will return, albeit in a different character, in Tom Six’s forthcoming The Human Centipede 3.
