to:

* NightmareFetishist: You pretty much have to be to enjoy the films.
* NoDeadBodyPoops: Played straight. [[{{Squick}} Then again, considering the nature of the films, it's probably for the best.]]
* SerialEscalation: The first movie has [[spoiler:three people sewn together ass to mouth]] and the sequel has [[spoiler:twelve people!]] The third one has [[spoiler:FIVE HUNDRED PEOPLE!!!!]]
* ShowWithinAShow: The first film is a film within the second film. The first and second films are films within the third film.
* TagLine: Which doubles as a RunningGag:
** ''First Sequence'' is "100% Medically Accurate".
** ''Full Sequence'' is "[[SelfDeprecation 100% Medically Inaccurate]]".
** ''Final Sequence'' is "100% Politically Incorrect".
* TorturePorn: One of the more prominent examples right before the genre went down the chute, with the latter two entries contributing to its decline.
* WorldOfHam: Many of the actors are clearly having a good time with this, though the standout example is Deiter Laser.
* TheWormThatWalks: Inverted.




to:

* LeftHanging: Considering that there should have been some police backup the very same day (since two cops didn't report back from Creepy Guy's home), it's odd that there's no mention of Lindsay's fate.
* NightmareFetishist: Heiter is strongly implied to be getting off when Lindsay, as the middle segment of the centipede, is "[[{{Squick}} fed]]" by Katsuro.
* ObviouslyEvil: Heiter, good ''lord.'' Even Dieter Laser himself admits that he has an ideal "villain face".
* PlotHole: How did Heiter get the centipede out of the basement/OR if all he has is a spiral staircase? [[spoiler: This becomes quite an issue when the centipede attempts to escape.]]
* RecycledInSpace: The film is ''Film/HostelPartII''... with even more {{Squick}}!
* ShownTheirWork: The director brought in a surgeon to consult him on how a "human centipede" would function in real life (hence the "100% medically accurate" disclaimer), including suggesting that it would be able to survive ''for years'' with an IV drip to provide fluids and nutrients. This trope may also explain why the centipede [[spoiler:doesn't last long -- almost immediately, Jenny starts dying from blood poisoning]].
* StockParody: It's well on its way to this.
* TearsOfJoy: Heiter, [[spoiler: once... oh dear god... once it's complete.]]
* TooDumbToLive: Jenny & Lindsay, rather than staying on the road like any rational human being, decide to walk into the woods (at night) in the middle of nowhere Germany.
** In his review, Creator/BradJones points out that given how ObviouslyEvil Heiter was, it was incredibly stupid of the women to accept drinks from an open container from him.
** Or just driving on the flat tire since the car still ran. If they were smart, they would have paid for the insurance; so they could total it if they had to.
* VillainProtagonist: Heiter, a crazy, [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi-esque]] MadScientist.




to:

* LaxativePrank: [[PlayedForDrama Done to horrifying and]] [[NauseaFuel nauseating]] [[PlayedForDrama effect]], when Martin injects each of his victims with a laxative syringe, forcing each of them to have explosive bowel evacuations into the mouth of the unlucky person behind them.
* NightmareFetishist: Martin became sexually obsessed with the original film and resolved to create a Human Centipede of his own.
* NoSocialSkills: Taken UpToEleven by the mentally-handicapped Martin, who has poor hygiene, problems making eye contact, and is apparently nonverbal.
* SequelEscalation: If the first film was too much to stomach, '''''do not''''' watch the second film. Not only are the means of assembling much more rudimentary and unprofessional, but there are more people involved. Additionally, the villain does some horrific things to his victims [[ForTheEvulz for basically no reason]]. In the words of the director, it makes the original look like ''My Little Pony''.
* SilenceIsGolden: Martin never speaks any actual words, and in the second half of the film dialogue is replaced by the cries and moans of the victims.
* SilentProtagonist: Martin never says a word onscreen. He is intimated to have talked and makes phone calls offscreen (we only see him checking his messages on his phone), so he ''can'' speak, but aside from some grunts, he otherwise is [[TheVoiceless completely silent]].
* TongueTrauma: Martin rips out Ashlynn's tongue with pliers after he gets annoyed with her screaming.
* VillainProtagonist: Martin, a mentally challenged pervert who is inspired by the original film to commit truly horrific crimes.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: To some extent, Martin is this. [[spoiler:He was sexually abused by his father, who went to prison because of it. And his equally horrible mother actually blames Martin for her husband's arrest and treats him like garbage. His psychiatrist Dr. Sebring pretends to be his friend but actually wants to sexually take advantage of him. And most people's first reaction to him, even when he hasn't done anything, is to insult and belittle him. While there is no excuse for the actions Martin takes, it's nonetheless easy to see how all of this can combine to finally make Martin snap and lose himself in grotesque fantasy, and want to [[MoralEventHorizon enact that fantasy]] on the people who've wronged him. By the time he actually sets to work, he's so deeply involved in his mania he also targets innocents.]]






* LargeHam: Dieter Laser is [[ChewingTheScenery clearly having a lot of fun]].

** ''[[PuttingOnTheReich Jack-boots]]'' to be precise.
* LaxativePrank: [[PlayedForDrama Done to horrifying and]] [[NauseaFuel nauseating]] [[PlayedForDrama effect]] in the second film, where Martin injects each of his victims with a laxative syringe, forcing each of them to have explosive bowel evacuations into the mouth of the unlucky person behind them.

* NightmareFetishist:
** In the first film, Heiter is strongly implied to be getting off when Lindsay, as the "middle" part of the centipede, is "[[{{Squick}} fed]]" by Katsuro.
** Martin, the villain of ''Full Sequence'', became sexually obsessed with the original film (which is a [[ShowWithinAShow Film Within a Film]] in the sequel's universe), and resolved to create a Human Centipede of his own.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRTFsLFzDrE This Australian trailer]] for the film depicts several people's reactions to the film. Most of them are rightfully shocked... but one is shown to be masturbating.
** ''Final Sequence'' has one insane inmate who eats his own feces and actually ''[[TooKinkyToTorture wants]]'' to be part of the Centipede.
* NoDeadBodyPoops: [[{{Squick}} Then again, considering the nature of the film, it's probably for the best.]]
* NoSocialSkills: Heiter. "Are you ''alone''? Are you ''relatives''? I don't like ''human beings''..."
** Taken UpToEleven in the sequel by Martin, who has poor hygiene, problems making eye contact, and is apparently mute.
* ObviouslyEvil: Heiter, good ''lord.'' Even Dieter Laser himself admits that he has an ideal "villain face".
* ParallelPornTitles: A porn parody is in the works: ''The Human Sex-ipede''. Though the director claims that it will be more slapstick than [[NauseaFuel scat]].
** The script is actually quite funny, mostly due to the parody element.
* PlotHole: How did Heiter get the centipede out of the basement/OR if all he has is a spiral staircase? [[spoiler: This becomes quite an issue when the centipede attempts to escape]].
* PragmaticVillainy: In the third film, Bill Boss plans to make all of the prison inmates into a human centipede. He kills two inmates that can't be used in the procedure, one because he has a stoma and another because he is disabled. Boss also finds a mentally unstable inmate eating his own feces and wanting to be part of the human centipede, but Boss kills him because he doesn't want anyone to enjoy being part of the human centipede.
* RecycledInSpace: The first film is ''Film/HostelPartII''... with even more {{Squick}}!

** However, the third film is comparatively LighterAndSofter. Not only are the victims unsympathetic prison inmates, there are way too many of them in the centipede to possibly take seriously, and the violence shown is so outrageously over the top that it becomes a farce. The actual surgical procedure is much closer to the original than the first sequel, as it is again performed by medical professionals. Furthermore, there's much more emphasis on BlackComedy then the previous films. Also, casting a prominent porn star in a main role and having "The Star Spangled Banner" playing over the end credits also tend to distract from any attempt at seriousness.
* {{Shoutout}}: The third film references the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "[=HUMANCENTiPAD=]" and the porn parody ''The Human Sexipede''. Also, the inmate played by Akihiro Kitamura (who played Katsuro in the original) says that the film "occupies a world where the stars don't shine," which is a quote from [[Creator/RogerEbert Roger Ebert's]] scathing review of the first film.

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: In ''Final Sequence'', there's one mentally unstable inmate who eats his own feces and ''wants'' to become part of the Centipede. Bill shoots him, as being part of the Centipede is meant to be a punishment, not something to be enjoyed.

* ChewingTheScenery: Dieter Laser in the first film. In the third one, he doesn't just chew it. He pulverises it and digests it.




to:

* CreepyCentipedes: Not the literal kind, but close enough, and far creepier.
* FleshGolem: Technically, since the titular human centipedes are constructed by sewing people together ass-to-mouth.
* ForceFeeding: The "head" of each centipede is definitely the lucky one in this regard.
* ForTheEvulz: Why else would you sew people ass to mouth?
* {{Gorn}}: Multiplied with each installment.
* IAteWhat: Goes without saying, really. Not that they're confused about what it is they're eating.
* KneeCapping: Victims are crippled this way so they can't stand up.




!!''Full Sequence'' contains examples of:
* AllJustADream: [[spoiler:The ending seems to imply that Martin simply daydreamed it all...]]
** OrWasItADream: [[spoiler:...Except the baby is still crying in the car all alone.]]
* AllPsychologyIsFreudian: Martin's doctor theorizes that he is obsessed with centipedes because they are a violent phallic symbol and that he associates them with being sexually abused by his father.
* AsHimself: Ashlynn Yennie, who played Lindsay in ''First Sequence'', appears as herself.
* AssShove: [[spoiler:Martin ends up on the receiving end of this when Yennie finally snaps.]]
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:A good portion of Martin's victims are people who have wronged him somehow: his mother, his psychiatrist, the rude couple at the beginning, the skinhead upstairs neighbor, etc.]]
* BodyHorror: Even worse than the previous film. Instead of actual medical instruments, things like '''''staple guns and duct tape''''' are used to [[spoiler:graft each victim to the next.]] As if that wasn't bad enough, [[spoiler:the villain forming the centipede ends up ''ripping out a girl's tongue'' to cease their screaming, and also ends up '''''raping the person at the end with his genitals covered in barbed wire'''''.]]

!!''Final Sequence'' contains examples of:
* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: The theme song for the Japanese version is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T1bRVplNA4 "Krazy"]] by Raychell feat. RICKY & RABBIE.
* AsHimself: Director Tom Six plays himself.
* AscendedMeme: Deiter Laser's character again screams "swallow it bitch!" though this time he's ordering Bree Olson's character to swallow his semen.
* AssholeVictim: The victims are all convicted criminals.
* TheBadGuyWins: Deranged prison warden Bill Boss not only succeeds in making over 500 convicts into a human centipede, but he also convinces Governor Hughes that making prison inmates into a human centipede is "what America needs".
* BodyHorror: Toned down from the last film somewhat (though still worse than the original), simply [[spoiler:stitching them from ass to mouth without grafting their skin to each other or removing their teeth and kneecaps]]. After all, prisoners have a finite sentence, and they eventually have to leave prison without disfigurement. The exception is for death row inmates and those serving life sentences, who get turned into a "Human Caterpillar" -- not only are they given the full surgery described above, but they also [[spoiler:have their arms and legs removed]]. Unrelated to the centipede are the [[spoiler: imported dried clitorises.]]
* BrandX: Bill Boss drinks Cirrhosis brand whiskey.







** On the other hand, he gave the sequel zero stars, because it was "reprehensible, dismaying, ugly, artless and an affront to any notion, however remote, of human decency."
* ButtMonkey: Daisy in ''Final Sequence''. She's regularly sexually harassed and forced to fellate Bill Boss in exchange for getting her father out of prison. During the riot, Boss instantly locks her out of his office, and she is brutally beaten into a coma by the inmates. While unconscious, Boss rapes her and then has her integrated into the centipede for no apparent reason.
* ChewingTheScenery: Dieter Laser in the first film. In the third one, he doesn't just chew it. He pulverises it and digests it.
* CrackFic: ''FanFic/TheHuemnCeniped2TheHumenMilipede''. Perhaps the author went insane after watching the film.
* CreepyCentipedes: Not the literal one but close enough....
** Played straight with Martin's pet centipede in the sequel.

* DaylightHorror: Once the operation is complete, the film gets very bright and sunny visually. The prison from ''Final Sequence'' is also located in a very sunny desert.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The second film, because the director felt it was scarier in monochrome.
** Plus, if it was in color, it most likely would have been edited down ''more'' than it already was in monochrome.

When he does do it, or thinks he does, he becomes very upset, tries desperately to revive them, and actually cries when he fails (or thinks he did, in the case of the pregnant woman).

When he does do it, or thinks he does, he becomes very upset, tries desperately to revive them, and actually cries when he fails (or thinks he did, in the case of the pregnant woman).

* FanDisservice: Martin strips all of his victim naked, including some fairly attractive men and women, though the setting and the context is utterly unsexy.

!!The trilogy as a whole contains examples of:
* AndIMustScream: Well, you ''can'' scream... it's just that you can only scream up someone's ass.
* AxCrazy: The characters responsible for each centipede. No explanation needed.
* BodyHorror: Good ''lord''.
* VillainProtagonist: Each protagonist sews people ass to mouth, so this is a given.

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Katsuro, right before he commits suicide,]] accuses himself of being this.
* BilingualBonus: "Heiter" is German for ''cheerful''. Actually, an awful lot of the film is in German and Japanese. Unless you have the DVD subtitles on or know those languages, you're kind of screwed.
* BodyHorror: Heiter goes into ''graphic detail'' on what the procedure involves. [[spoiler: The cheeks (of the mouth) [[GlasgowGrin are cut]] and grafted onto the cheeks (the other kind) of the person in front of them in such a way that the mouth is enclosed around it and that the person can't even breathe through it, and can't move their jaw without ripping the flesh. Some of the front teeth are also removed so as to facilitate the flow of feces between segments, as are the kneecaps so as to prevent each segment from standing up.]] Probably the only horror film where ''you don't even need to '''see it''' to be horrified''.

** However, the third film is comparatively LighterAndSofter.

The actual surgical procedure is much closer to the original than the first sequel, as it is again performed by medical professionals. Furthermore, there's much more emphasis on BlackComedy then the previous films. Also, casting a prominent porn star in a main role and having "The Star Spangled Banner" playing over the opening credits also tend to distract from any attempt at seriousness.
