i love love love horror movies

but of late, there is a LOT of torture porn out there. that, i don't like (you know the saws and the hostels). that i DO NOT like.

i never heard of this movie. it sounds wonderful AND horrid all at the same time. it sounds like i want to see it BUT after seeing the trailer on youtube (i'm not going to embed it. i don't want anyone mad at me over THAT), i don't think i will see it

The most disturbing movie ever made?

By Breeanna Hare, Special to CNN

CNN) -- If the title alone isn't enough to make you squirm, a brief rundown of the premise for the indie horror movie, "The Human Centipede," certainly will. Any film involving three humans sharing a single digestive tract obviously isn't aiming to be easy on the eyes.

Yet director/writer Tom Six's portrayal of a crazed surgeon who takes his skills at separating conjoined twins and uses them to create his own living human insect has left some critics appalled that it was even created; venerated critic Roger Ebert didn't think his star rating system was even applicable.

"No horror film I've seen inflicts more terrible things on its victims than 'The Human Centipede,'" Ebert wrote in his review. "The star rating system is unsuited to this film. Is the movie good? Is it bad? Does it matter? It is what it is and it occupies a world where the stars don't shine."

These kind of reviews -- filled with cautious synopses that often start with "warning, if you have a weak stomach, stop reading" -- is also exactly the kind of thing that piques the curiosity of fans of horror or "torture porn," although "Centipede" is thought to be such a psychologically challenging picture that it's almost outside of that category, said Rachel Belofsky, director of movie festival Screamfest L.A................

I have this movie sitting in my movie folder but I don't think I want to see it either. I thought mabye I did but since I too hate all those torture porn movies like 'Hostel' and 'Saw' so I think this one will go into the trash and I won't feel the least bit like I am missing out on something.
