We’re a little let down by Monster Pictures and Tom Six‘s first trailer for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence), the sequel to 2009′s appallingly twisted torture-porn flick The Human Centipede. After all the buildup to how grotesque and meta #2 is, what with a lecherous doctor stitching together twelve people and raping at least one of them, we expected some actual footage. What we get instead is a bunch of people watching the movie in a truck and puking. But is it even the actual movie?
Pajiba‘s the one who first brought this up, and I’ve gotta agree with them: The actors/average folk in this teaser trailer could be watching anything, from “2 Girls 1 Cup” to Hostel, that incites the gag reflex. The muffled screams and whimpers are too generalized to be from a specific scene, and there’s no dialogue to tell us if the villain they’re watching is the awesome Dr. Heiter (Dieter Laser) from the first movie, or the new doctor/rapist. This is bizarre, since most of Full Sequence‘s press has been about the specific tortures in this film — why wouldn’t Tom Six and co. capitalize on the details that have already been seared into our brains and tease those some more?
Until we see actual footage — and then want to run to the bathroom — we’re calling bullshit.
