Human Centipede director Tom Six is giving the big middle finger to the wackadoos making death threats against him on the social media giant, Facebook. In case you've been living under a rock, or have a weak stomach, Human Centipede follows the exploits of two young American girls who are kidnapped by a German surgeon. The ditzy victims, along with a Japanese man, are surgically transformed into a gory human chain. In other words, all the gruesome ass to mouth stuff in the film is making people pissy.
Six's Facebook fan page has been pummeled with people threatening to sterilize the filmmaker, and even shoot him. A quick glance showed that most people are asking him if he's "sick" (zzz ... ). The Dutch director seems to be handling the bullies well: "I take it all with a blink of the eye, because why would you shoot a film-maker? I don't really care about it." Famous last words! He also added, "Of course, there are a lot of lunatics out there, but I don't see myself going to a premiere with bodyguards around me."
I'm glad that the man who made a film about such a grotesque subject is tough enough to handle his audience. His sequel is in pre-production and has promised to be a lot worse than its predecessor. Bravo to you Tom Six ... and your cojones.
