Argh, I wish I paused it before answering the door, there's a good view of our wall mounted tv from the open front door.

I hope he's seen it before and knows it's a film.

Eugh. I once googled what the film was about and haven’t been able to forget it since

YABVVVVVVVU to watch that at all.

What did he see?

AliceAforethought Tue 27-Oct-20 19:20:43

What else was he likely to think it was? A home video?confused

Meowza74 Tue 27-Oct-20 19:23:38

I don't think there are many other similar films, most horror film fans know it I think?

It was the bit with him trying to get them to walk around the garden.

Last week 2 blokes came in to deliver a bed, I was watching OITNB 1 second after they were theough the door the loudest shagging in the world came on the TV. It was hilarious, as we all awkwardly pretended not to notice.

OMG

I was upset when I heard about that film, I read the article thinking “I hope my parents don’t hear about this film”.

That was a few years ago and I have definitely changed but I still don’t understand the appeal. One friend told me it was a known trope from banned films in the past?

I heard that the writers idea for the film came from a pub discussion about what should be done to paedophiles in prison.

I can't stand to watch those films. They are sick in my opinion!

anniversarywoes Tue 27-Oct-20 19:37:23

Nothing to add but that's one hell of a thread title you've got going on there!! grin

I watched the first film and didn't think it was as bad as a friend had described.
Decided to watch the 2nd and just couldn't get through it. I don't know why it seemed so much worse!

JesusInTheCabbageVan Tue 27-Oct-20 19:38:25

I expect he's wondering what was in the parcel he delivered to you. Hope it wasn't a sewing kit.

I'd ordered Xmas wrapping paper in bulk and a Pokemon lamp.

The second one is so much worse. I'm a fairly hardy horror veteran and it made me feel a bit vomity.

OMG why would you want to watch such a sick film?

AliceAforethought Tue 27-Oct-20 19:47:44

I've watched tons of horror, but draw the line at The Human Centipede (any number thereof!)

It's not the fear and dread (which I love with most horror) but the grossness. I can no longer stomach it as I could in my youth!

Why does anyone watch Hostel, Saw, Audition, Clockwork Orange, Splatter, etc?

I watched human centipede. Years ago. It's still etched in my mind. So much I had a little retch reading the thread title.

MrsGulDukat Tue 27-Oct-20 19:53:13

If anyone thinks Human Centipede is sick, then dont bloody watch Serbian Film. Infact, dont even fucking google it.

I have no idea!

Those films turn my stomach, and yeah i know different strokes for different folks, but i just dont get it at all

Yep, that's a really disturbing film. I struggled with it. THC is vaguely comical in comparison.

Agreed. My friends, who usually downplay how scary/gross a film is to try and persuade me to watch them (warped humour) told me not to Google it! If they say it's bad it must be bad!
