Dissection of the Human Centipede Trilogy

The Human Centipede has become somewhat of of a horror cult classic. Not in the same class as The Evil Dead or Night of the Living Dead series, but it is damn sure on it’s way.  Just in case you don’t know what the Human Centipede is allow me to enlighten you.
