The movie is about a mentally challenged English man, Martin, who watches and becomes obsessed with the first Human Centipede movie, and decides to make his own "centipede" made up of twelve people.

Response[change | change source]

It was originally banned in the United Kingdom by the BBFC because of its "revolting" content but was eventually granted an 18 certificate after over 30 cuts were made. The film was also banned in Australia for a short period of time. It is banned in New Zealand.[4] The film received negative reviews for its plot, excessive gore and violence.
