What's New on VOD for the Week Ending 5/22?
There's really only one notable movie hitting VOD this week, and it's one that we should be way more excited about than we are.

The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence: Taking inspiration from The Human Centipede films, the warden of a notorious and troubled prison looks to create a 500-person human centipede as a solution to his problems.

The first Human Centipede movie (our review HERE), as disgusting as it was, was great in that WTF?!? kind of way. The second movie was bigger and nastier than the first, and it played more like a tongue-in-cheek commentary than it did a Horror flick. It was alright, but we never reviewed that one.

And now, there's a third installment in the gross-out series.
I don't know if director Tom Six is a guy that struck "gold" once and then ran out of ideas, or what, but I'm pretty sure that the whole Human Centipede thing has overstayed it's welcome for most. The trailer for The Final Sequence looks cheap, and if there had never been any Human Centipede flicks before this one, we'd probably laugh, say "that looks kinda crazy" and then gladly skip it, dismissing it as Direct-to-DVD garbage.

Sequels are supposed to evolve into something that at least tries to be better than the movies that preceded them, and I say "supposed to be" because I know that a great many sequels are worse than their predecessors, and exists only to cash in on the good will that a brand name has established with audiences... which is exactly what this movie looks like it's doing.

I could be way wrong, and The Final Sequence could be a clever, fantastic sequel, I'm just not holding out much hope that it is.

Either way, we'll watch it, and let you know.


  1. Human Centipede 2 did for the color brown what Schindler's List did for red. I can't say this trailer fills me with anticipation, but it still beats Sharknado or a Uwe Boll offering.

    (OK, Postal is a guilty pleasure. But still,)

    1. Ah, Uwe Boll. Haven't heard that name in a while!
