From Astron-6, the demented minds who brought you Father’s Day and Manborg, comes The Editor, a love letter to the Italian giallo films of the 1970s and ’80s.
The term giallo – or “yellow” in Italian – is used to refer to a distinct style of Italian-produced thrillers, typically murder mysteries, that include elements of horror and eroticism. Made popular by filmmakers such as Mario Bava (Blood and Black Lace), Dario Argento (Suspiria), and Lucio Fulci (The Beyond), the super-saturated, supernatural giallo aesthetic was a huge influence on the slasher films of the ’80s.
Just recently we were all blessed with the news that they did in fact make a third installment in the Human Centipede…err, franchise? And not only that, but that the movie would up the centipede count from the three people in the original and the 12 people (or an attempted 12 anyway) seen in the second movie to a nauseating 500 people in the trilogy-maker. Surely a movie custom built for a holiday release.
If simply knowing this information wasn’t enough for you and you’re looking to see more, the first trailer for The Human Centipede 3: (Final Sequence)—“final sequence” because trying to top 500 could land everyone involved in prison—has now been released online, and can be viewed below…if you dare. The trailer is of the red band variety and should be considered NSFW. But you already knew that, because it’s a movie about surgically connecting 500 human beings together mouth to anus, and I’m quite confident it’d be an award-worthy achievement for someone to figure out a way to somehow cut a green band trailer for that madness.
Of all the strange cult films that have come out in the past few years, Human Centipede is one of the most disgusting, yet oddly attractive. After two films of characters having their mouths being surgically (against their will of course) attached to another person’s ass, we are getting a third installment titled The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence).
The first one had a three person chain, which then jumped to 12 people in the sequel. But the third will spike to 500 people. The logistics of creating something like that is just beyond crazy, but the new plot synopsis reveals where the Dieter Laser (from the first film) and Laurence R. Harvey (from the second) find their victims. The two are returning as prison wardens who seem to get no respect from their inmates, and find inspiration through the Human Centipede films. Hit the jump for the full synopsis and release date.

Are we really not only making movies about eating shit, but making sequels to them now?
The Human Centipede 2 is not only a difficult film to watch; it’s disgusting and it’s messy. Where the first movie is cold, deliberate, clinical, and in full color; the sequel is static, filthy, filmed in black-and-white, and firmly lacking in the antiseptic of the first (quite literally). As with the initial movie, there’s not much about this horror movie to ‘scare’ you, but much of it to shock and disgust you. Tom Six delivers his promise that this sequel makes the original look like My Little Pony; but there is a cost to this, as elements of social commentary and deeper symbolism is sacrificed by the obsession of being able disturb you and shock you.
