You may undermine this as a black and white movie but only till you start watching it. This brilliant piece from the avant-garde period is sure to give you some chills with it’s strangely disturbing visuals. The story follows Henry in his industrial shack who in an affair got the girl pregnant. To the horror, the child turns out to be an abomination and the mere sight of him is despicable. Henry’s troubles are further worsened by a rather unstructured and ugly lady who lives in his radiator and crushes human sperms that lay before her.

The Human Centipede (2009)
Director – Tom Six
Runtime – 92 Mins.
Cast – Dieter Laser, Ashlynn Yennie
Streaming Platform – Deemed Unfit for Indian Audiences*
The alley gets pitch black here. A film that is deemed unfit for a country to watch and surely a film that lives up to it’s ban. Involving two ‘tramp’ girls stuck on a lonely road with a broke down car. Finally they take shelter in a villa belonging to a Japanese man where they meet a strange surgeon whose ultimate ambition is to create a human centipede connected through the gastric organs of the human body. Yes, it’s as gore as it sounds.

DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM IF YOU ARE FAINT HEARTED! The film Begotten is the most disturbing film ever made. Not much can be explained about the experimental black and white film. The first scene involves a godlike figure disemboweling himself with a straight razor and the rest of the haunting series of images just makes it worse and worse up to the mark of ‘Unbearable to Watch’. If you really want to test your control on your guts, I’d recommend watching this film.
