The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) is a 2014 Dutch horror film written and directed by Tom Six (who also appears, playing himself) and apparently the final entry in Six’s The Human Centipede trilogy.
Eric Roberts stars as Governor Hughes and former adult movie actress Bree Olson also appears. The film also sees the return of both Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey, albeit in different roles. Both Laser and Harvey have starred in the previous films in the series as Dr Josef Heiter and Martin respectively. Other cast members returning from the previous films in the series include Bill Hutchens and Peter Blankenstein. Tony “Tiny” Lister also appears.
The film was released to VOD and limited movie houses on May 22, 2015.
Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), leading a big state prison in the US of A, 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 threats of termination by the Governor, his loyal right hand man Dwight (Laurence R Harvey) comes up with a brilliant idea. A revolutionary idea that could change the US 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…
“Violent, profane, scurrilous, obnoxious, hilarious-if-you’re-in-a-weird-mood and so self-aware it’s nearly beyond criticism, this fuses the shock tactics of avant-garde drama with ’70s exploitation. Like it or not, Six has contributed something fresh and demented to pop culture.” Kim Newman, Empire
” … this final installment feels both drained and desperate — an ugly, claustrophobic celebration of sexual violence that’s anchored by one of the most repellent characters ever to appear on screen: The prison warden Bill Boss.” The New York Times
“In addition to its sluggish failure at comedy, Final Sequence doesn’t even work as a gore fest … the third doesn’t get to the centipede business until the last 15 minutes of its 102-minute runtime.” Consequence of Sound
“The direction is bad, the acting is worse, and it’s lit to mimic the soap-opera effect on a poorly calibrated HDTV. Basically, The Human Centipede III is an unsexy Ilsa movie, and it’s just as impossible to sit through as that sounds.” AV Club
“Six just wants to shock, though his imagination is so primitive that the effort is strained and a bit pathetic. Initially abrasive, the whole enterprise grows simply tedious well before the now-epically-scaled titular phenom is unveiled in the prison yard.” Variety
