You heard about it online, watched the freaky trailer on YouTube (along with 2 million others) and winced about its utterly insane, ‘100% medically accurate’ premise. And now after winning both fans and awards at numerous film festivals around the world, the most talked about horror film of the year, is finally crawling its way into town as Toronto After Dark’s Closing Gala film! Prepare to be shocked by Tom Six’s THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE. The truly twisted tale features two American tourists with car trouble who seek help at the house of Dr. Heiter (the outlandish Dieter Laser), a physician who specialized in separating Siamese twins but now wants to create… a human centipede. The madder-than-mad doctor sews the girls, and a Japanese tourist, together – butt-to-mouth! – and marches them around his yard. Now, the only hope for escape is their ability to work together as a singular organism. THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE: truly the sum of its parts.
