The Human Centipede: First Sequence is a 2009 Dutch horror movie directed by Tom Six. While Americans Lindsay (Ashley C. Williams) and Jenny (Ashlynn Yennie) are vacationing in Germany, their car breaks down on a lonely country road. They make their way to the nearby home of Dr. Heiter (Dieter Laser) to ask if they can use his phone, but the strange doctor then drugs them and ties the women to gurneys in his basement. When Lindsay and Jenny wake up, they witness Dr. Heiter killing a truck driver (Rene de Wit). He then brings in a new captive, a Japanese man named Katsuro (Akihiro Kitamura). Using diagrams projected on a board, Dr. Heiter then tells the three terrified tourists his evil plan -- to turn them into a human centipede with a single digestive system by connecting them all mouth-to-anus. After hearing their intended fate, Ashley, Jenny, and Katsuro must struggle to escape from the mad scientist's clutches before their time runs out.moreless
