We are the Sprocket Holes vol. 131

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE has found a distributor for North America

Good news for horror fans in the USA and Canada: Dutch director Tom Six' unique and VERY disturbing body-horror film "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)" has been picked up for distribution in North America. According to Indiewire the multi-award winning movie will be released by IFC Films "sometime in 2010", both in theaters and through Video-On-Demand.

This is also good news for horror fans in other parts of the world, as this will greatly improve Tom's plans for a sequel. In case you hadn't heard, the first film was about a deranged doctor who wants to create a human centipede by surgically joining three hapless victims.
Well, Tom has been bragging that the sequel might feature a twelve-body centipede. And today's announcement might have brought that vision a lot closer...

Oh, Tom Six, you entrance and repulse us, all at the same time.

Six's body-horror oddity The Human Centipede [First Sequence] was, without a doubt, the buzz film of Fantastic Fest 2009. A film that left screening after screening of seasoned horror veterans feeling squeamish in all sorts of new and increasingly uncomfortable ways, the film went on to win major awards hardware not only at Fantastic Fest but on the international scene as well while prompting many - myself included - to describe Six himself as a twisted fusion of early era David Cronenberg and Takashi Miike.

Yes, I understand how high that praise is.

Well, IFC Films are preparing to unleash Six's creation on American audiences this summer and have just released the first piece of formal poster art for the picture. Hopefully a trailer follows soon but this will give you a taste for now ...

and now for trailer;

You're alive! I was starting to get worried for a second because you hadn't updated your site in a while. Re: Human Centipede, the trailer is coming soon per one of the cast members. I'm extremely excited for this movie as well. Unfortunately I won't get to see it in theaters because of where I live, but I'm hoping to get a screener for it one of these days. I interviewed the three actors that make up the "human centipede" on my site and they're all super nice. Thanks for posting this, man.
