The Human Centipede franchise is alive and well, folks, and the latest (final?) installment looks to be aiming to top the first two films in every way. Director Tom Six’s initial Human Centipede became the “gross movie” that everyone had to see when it was released in 2010, and then for the sequel, Six took things to unimaginable levels. Now, Human Centipede 3 is aiming to potentially close out the franchise with a bang.
The folks at EW have the first synopsis for Human Centipede Part 3 (Final Sequence), and it reveals that the story for the third film involves the quest to create a 500-person centipede. Oh, and it takes place in a prison.
Human Centipede 3 stars Dieter Laser from the first film, Laurence R. Harvey from the sequel, and newcomer Eric Roberts, and is slated to be released in theaters and on VOD on May 22nd, so you’ll be able to get a taste of the follow-up in a little over a month.
For now, peruse the official synopsis below and let us know if you’ll be venturing into the world of Human Centipede one more time for the final chapter.
Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), leading a big state prison in the US of A, has a lot of problems; his prison statistically has the highest amount of prison riots, medical costs and staff turnover in the country. But foremost he is unable to get the respect he thinks he deserves from his inmates and the state Governor (Eric Roberts). He constantly fails in experimenting with different ideas for the ideal punishment to get the inmates in line, which drives him, together with the sizzling heat, completely insane. Under threats of termination by the Governor, his loyal right hand man Dwight (Laurence R Harvey) comes up with a brilliant idea. A revolutionary idea which could change the American prison system for good and save billions of dollars. An idea based on the notorious Human Centipede movies, that will literally and figuratively get the inmates on their knees, creating the ultimate punishment and deterrent for anyone considering a life of crime. Having nothing to lose, Bill and Dwight create a jaw-dropping 500-person prison centipede.
