** Also the way the first film portrays the doctor seems to put emphasis his fascination that turned to sick obsession came from siamese twins. Two beings that have to share some part of the body. In his mad science ravings i guess he chose digestive track so they could have something edible? Even though given that the film does have him use IVs (even if they are that prominently featured) so clearly he did use some thinking about how to make it live longer.

* Why doesn't the first guy attack the doctor? He seems young and strong, and the doctor is an aging nerd. Even with his anus attached to someone's mouth, he should have been able to grab the doctor, yank his feet out from under him, wrestle him and strangle him. At the very least, he should have tried.

* I get that the big bad is nuts in the head, but really, if his plan is actually instrumentality as opposed to "I need a clever conversation piece and a novelty coffee table just ain't gonna cut it," you'd think Sign No. 1 that turning mankind into an [[IncrediblyLamePun ATM machine]] wasn't gonna pan out was that its biology only worked when supplemented with life-support machines. I know, ExcusePlot and all, but damn, Mad Scientist Guy, you could've done much more awesomely horrible things than slake your desire for corporophagia.

** From a more non-conformist critique if all they had was suspicions both probably should have left for the warrant. Heiter's action with the needle though really should have been a red flag enough to risk having one officer stay there. As far as back up, they mostly just believed him to be a solo actor kidnapping several people, two cops in theory should be enough to take down one solo actor and call ambulances if they find kidnapping victims. They had no idea at the time of course his victims were surgically sewn together, they probably just thought they were tied up in the basement or something.
** Although one last point to stress here: While the above is probably the best rational explanation on what cops should have done here, that is not to say that every cop fictional or real is actually component at their job any more than everyone else is. It sucks for the centipede victims that they didn't get grade a supercops. But again how many real life people actually do get them when they are in trouble?

** Accordint to TheOtherWiki they were wearing an especial underwear with a prostetic that allow the actor to bite some sort of rubber object giving the impression that they were joint anus-to-mouth, but not really near the anus.

** Only one of them, Kranz, found the Centipede. Then he heard the gunshot and went to find Voller. By that time, Voller was dead, and Kranz himself was quickly dispatched by Heiter. There was no time to call for backup.

** I think this might be classified as the other end of the screwed up spectrum. The idea of the whole series existence is as you say from the director's own mind. But in the film you are commenting on, the doctor does hook them up to IVs each night. So by that he seems to at least know that he can't expect them to live on it alone.

*** I'm going to agree with that but also the science part. He's whacked but his passion here seems for science. He's no doubt spent years upon years detaching twins, so his next step is to unite people (lol) and make a pet. It's a weird jump for anyone sane, but not exactly that out there if someone was that science brilliant and that obsessed with twins as we are lead to believe from what little characterization we see from him and his home.

** The second film wound up being about a LoonyFan of the first film who got off to the idea of a human centipede and wanted to create one himself. The third, meanwhile, was about a human centipede being used as punishment by a sadistic prison warden.
