"Human Centipede 3" Makes Me Happy to Announce How Terrible It Is

The tremendously disgusting things gushing like from a volcano out of Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) are not what ruin the movie. The fun of gross-out cinema is to be grossed out.

Danish Short "The Harvest" Not to be Confused with Anything Else

The Harvest, a short, Danish production by directing duo Kim Sønderholm and Martin Sonntag, is not to be confused with the recently released Jon McNaughton film of the same name (reviewed by The Movie Blog’s Jim Alexander here). This is a special effects nightmare—I mean this in a good and bad way. The twenty nasty little minutes that comprise …
