We gave it an F

If you were wondering what director Tom Six’s torture-porn franchise could do after the gut-bucket wallow of 2011’s The Human Centipede Part 2, the short answer is: more. More depravity, more terrible acting, and even more victims surgically attached in an anus-to-mouth daisy chain. In what’s easily the front-runner for the year’s most inept and revolting movie, Dieter Laser returns from the first film as a sadistic, misogynistic prison warden who tries to impress the tough-on-crime governor (Eric Roberts, we need to have a chat) by turning his facility into something out of Josef Mengele’s sleaziest fantasies. Six rubs the audience’s face in this filth like a third grader straining to shock. Don’t take the bait. Even by the series’ already low standards, The Human Centipede Part 3 is crap. F
