Everyone’s favorite gross-out, punchline-ready film franchise is headed for its conclusion.
From the looks of its new trailer (posted above), “The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)” looks to be finishing the series’ run in blaze of glory. The official synopsis reads: “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.”
The franchise is also closing out by going a little meta, with writer-director Tom Six figuring into the plot as himself — since, you know, he’s an expert on all “Human Centipede”-related matters.
