Human Centipede Comes to Japan. Seriously.

It’s been well over a year since the infamous Human Centipede film made its theatrical release in America and it looks like it finally hit the Japanese market. According to IMDB, the film gained distribution in Tokyo on July 2, 2011.

For those that don’t know, Human Centipede is a horror movie about a mad scientist who surgically grafts three people together…from anus to mouth. As a result, they each share the same digestive tract in the worst way imaginable. Fans and critics have both described it as the “2 Girls, 1 Cup” of horror.

Japan’s pop culture is reputably the land of “WTF.” I bet the movie’s marketers thought long and hard to think of ways to out-weird the movie’s original premise. This advertisement is the end result.

    I sure don’t plan to visit such a place with my family.
