A title and concept for the ages, director Tom Six's 'The Human Centipede: First Sequence' may be the scary indie that-could this upcoming, overcrowded theatrical weekend.

In nowhere town Germany, two carefree, road-tripping American girls find themselves in a fairly precarious position as their car breaks down in the middle of the woods. Seeking help, they arrive at the home of an insane, reclusive surgeon. Pretty much chaos takes over from there, and the girls are held victim to the maniacal whims of this crazed man.

For the faint of heart, we won't go into the gruesome details, but just take one look at the outrageous, provocative trailer below and you'll quickly get the idea. Also, be forewarned: Even though this film is not yet rated, it would most likely fall in the hard "R" category.

The critics are mostly embracing "The Human Centipede," with several noting the film's ability to sustain a taut mood and psychological terror -- despite a few too many visually repulsive scenes. Ed Gonzalez of The House Next Door even points out the film's pre-release buzz and its potential as a horror classic, stating: "'The Human Centipede' is already being hailed a cult classic in the making."
