The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)
Ah yes, you perhaps noticed that The Human Centipede is followed by some sneaky bracketed words – (First Sequence) giving us a less-than-subtle hint that this could be just the start of a, ahem, string of centipede horror pieces.
You’d be right in assuming that. The flick has yet to receive a worldwide release (it’s not even got a fixed UK date yet), but a sequel entitled The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) is now in the works with Six at the helm.
“I had so many ideas, which I couldn’t use in this part,” the director reveals. “I wanted, first, people to get used to this idea. Now I can expand my ideas and hopefully create something really original. I want to offer people some more!”
So will a sequel extend the concept and take the ‘bigger, faster, stronger’ sequel route by adding more humans to the centipede segments?
Six is up to the challenge. “It's very challenging for a film maker to make a sequel,” he says, “because a lot of sequels are very disappointing for fans and for audiences. So I really wanted to have a really original idea to make a sequel and I think I have something that people won't expect.
“In part two I can use all of my imagination and put everything in part two. I can't tell you what it's about of course because I want to keep it original and a surprise to audiences but I hope I will succeed. I'm going to shoot it in June in London and hopefully it'll be ready by the end of the year.”
Not that Six is planning on stopping at centipedes. Now he’s gotten the industry’s attention, he’s planning on making more films.
“I really want to explore the horror genre combined with drama some more,” he says. “So I'm writing a script right now for a new film after the centipede that's going to be completely different but a film that will definitely push a lot of boundaries.
“Hopefully again it's very original and something that hasn't been done before and I'd like to shoot that in LA next year.”
