Festivals: FrightFest, Fantastic Fest 2009

The most disgusting film at this year's Festival is also possibly one of the funniest, with a sick conceit that will have you either clambering for a ticket or running a zillion miles in the opposite direction. Two attractive but ditsy American gal pals are traveling through Germany when their car breaks down.

Luckily for them Dr Heiter welcomes them into his isolated villa. Unluckily for them, he's a nutjob with aspirations of inheriting Josef Mengele's mantle. His truly vile plan is to create a fully functional human centipede using random captives who have their kneecaps surgically removed and their mouths sewn to the anus of the lucky person in front of them. Are you still reading this?

The Human Centipede is riotously unhinged, with a performance from Dieter Laser (whose face resembles Lance Henriksen and a smashed crab) that cements his position in the upper echelon of movie psychos.
