Re: “The Human Centipede II is a meta-sequel that doesn’t say anything

Warning - The following comment might seem a bit scatter brained.

Although I enjoyed THC: First Sequence more than it's sequel. I found it's sequel to be well thought out, I suppose you could say.

For Tom Six. He's clearly not doing these films simply to try getting rich from it. He's taking a clearly grotesque concept, and tell the world a story whether the world cares enough to listen.

The story of Martin is not one that has to be justfied. Because there are people who although may not go through the obsession Martin did with THC: First Sequence, there are those who will obsess over things quite grotesque, and play things out over and over again in their mind. Spending almost every waking moment on this obsession of theirs.

Martin is a character that fits the role perfectly. Change any of his attributes and you wouldn't have the sickening character that he is. He has mental problems. He practically never says a word. And nothing about him looks clean. His hair is lacking, he's overweight, buldging eyes, and the list goes on.

Anyone else doing what the film portrays him doing, wouldn't have the same nasty effect. Dr. Heiter was far from looking as Martin did, and when Heiter did what is portrayed in THC, it was disgusting, but the fact that everything was clean, himself, his house, his tools, etc. Helped take an edge off what he was doing to them. While Martin has makeshift tools, he's using a dirty warehouse, he himself is dirty, and the black-and-white film it was shot with just adds to the overall grunginess.

Although the acting lacked a bit when it came to this movie, it only derived most from his mother, therapist, and upstairs neighbor. But of course, that's a personal opinion regarding how they went about delivering their lines.

SPOILER ALERT

Overall, I think the movie is a fantastic sequel, because when you try to follow up with the first one, there isn't many roads you can take. Having chosen the route that tells a story of what goes on inside Martin's head (because afterall, nothing happened in the movie 'for real', it was just him playing out the scenario in his head) was possibly his best option.

I will be happily awaiting The Human Centipede: Final Sequence
