“The Human Centipede (First Sequence)” is a horror film written, directed and produced by Dutch filmmaker , and was released in 2009. The film's premise revolves around a mad scientist, Dr. Heiter, who kidnaps three tourists and surgically attaches them together, mouth to anus, to create a “human centipede”.

The Human Centipede gained notoriety for its shocking and disturbing subject matter, as well as its graphic depiction of the surgical procedure and the subsequent torment suffered by the victims. The film was widely criticized for its extreme content and for its apparent lack of artistic merit, with many labeling it as exploitative and gratuitous.

Despite its controversial nature, “The Human Centipede” has spawned two sequels: “The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)” and “The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)”. The film has also become a cultural phenomenon, with numerous parodies, memes and references appearing in popular media.

It is important to note that The Human Centipede's subject matter is considered highly offensive and controversial, and it may not be suitable for all audiences. It is also worth noting that the film's content has been banned in several countries, and it has been the subject of numerous debates and discussions regarding the limits of artistic expression and freedom of speech.
