Movie review: The Human Centipede 3: The Final Sequence

Searching for a solution to prison costs, warden Bill and his accountant Dwight find inspiration in the first two Human Centipede films, deciding to turn their prisoners into the largest human centipede ever.

Eric Roberts (Gov. Hughes), Bree Olson (Daisy), Tommy Lister (Inmate 178), Robert LaSardo (Inmate 297), Tom Six (Himself), Dieter Laser (Bill Boss), Laurence Harvey (Dwight), Clayton Rohner (Dr. Jones).

The first two films were quite strange and this one is no different. Warden Boss is tired of unruly prisoners, overcrowding, and riots. He is also quite literally insane and along with his accountant, decides stitching the inmates together into a human centipede will solve all his problems. Throw in some disturbing sexual behavior, cruel twisted violence, and some alcohol and you are in for one warped roller-coaster ride of depravity and lunacy.

I couldn't tell if Laser is actually, truly insane or just a really good actor. Either way his performance was quite disturbing on several levels. Olson was an interesting choice and while pleasant to look at, seemed to be in this one specifically as a porn star. Roberts did well with a somewhat mild and thankfully normal role. Lister and LaSardo were good as always, and it was nice seeing Harvey in a reasonably normal role as well.

Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were mild but good and seemed to fit the film well. Action scenes ranged from tepid to truly disturbing and were well done. Gore in particular had great impact. Dialogue was mediocre with Laser being ridiculously difficult to understand at times. Sound and soundtrack were okay.

The Human Centipede franchise has found a niche with incredibly disturbing and controversial images and themes. The Human Centipede 3: The Final Sequence is no different. Those who enjoyed the first film should enjoy this one as well.

Quite simply the best warning for this film is to not watch it if you are disturbed by alternative sexuality, gore, violence, or socially controversial themes. If instead you can accept it as entertainment you should enjoy this one.
