Monster Pictures has announced that it will release The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), the third and presumably last chapter in director Tom Six's controversial bad-taste trilogy in the UK this July. The film will open in selected cinemas on 10 July, before hitting Blu-ray, DVD and VOD a few days later on 13 July.
The third instalment sees the return of Dieter Laser, star of the original cult classic, as well as part 2's despicable protagonist Laurence R Harvey, although both actors take on new roles in this film. They are joined by Eric Roberts as they attempt to engineer a 500-man human centipede as a way of maintaining order in a Deep South US penitentiary, with predictably disgusting and darkly humorous results.
"Nasty, revolting, and utterly deplorable," quoth the press release, "if you thought the first two films were gross, trust us, you ain't seen nothing yet!" Adjust your anticipation accordingly.
Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), has a lot of problems; his prison statistically has the highest amount of prison riots, medical costs and staff turnover in the country. But foremost he is unable to get the respect he thinks he deserves from his inmates and the state Governor (Eric Roberts). He constantly fails in experimenting with different ideas for the ideal punishment to get the inmates in line, which drives him, together with the sizzling heat, completely insane.
Under threat of termination by the Governor, his loyal right hand man Dwight (Laurence R Harvey) comes up with a brilliant idea - a revolutionary idea which could change the American prison system for good and save billions of dollars. An idea based on the notorious Human Centipede movies that will literally and figuratively get the inmates on their knees, creating the ultimate punishment and deterrent for anyone considering a life of crime. Having nothing to lose, Bill and Dwight create a jaw-dropping 500-person prison centipede.
