Plot – Spoilers:
Martin, an asthmatic car park attendant, is an obsessive fan of Human Centipede (First Sequence). He spends the lonely hours in his booth watching the DVD and is obsessed with recreating the movie irl. To this end he knocks out patrons in the car park until he has collected enough of them to create his version of a Human Centipede.
There are stark contrasts and differences between Dr Josef Heiter from Part 1 and Martin:
1. Heiter considered himself an artist and innovator while Martin is a cheap copycat.
2. The two are also different in the types of nutjobs they represent. One was probably naturally psychotic given that he functioned as a renowned surgeon while the other was a created psycho from his childhood experiences where he was repeatedly molested by his father who was eventually jailed.
Martin’s psychopathy and retardation was also fomented by living with a contemptuous selfish mother who appears to resent Martin for taking away her married life.
3. Heiter was never shy of waxing eloquent about his intellectual masterpiece while Martin doesn’t utter a single word through the movie
4. The characterizations are also different. The First Sequence left it to the audience to guess Heiter’s life leading up to his creation. In Part 2, Martin’s daily life is well-detailed. From his interactions with his mother to the leery psychiatrist who is turned on by Martin’s retarded fat ass.
5. Martin is also a masochist apart from an obvious sadist – he sandpapers his dick while masturbating and later hooks up some barbed wire around his cock before raping the last segment of the centipede.
This second part of the Human Centipede series is also more violent and explicit in its scat scenes which were glossed over in Part one.
1. The whole sequence beginning with Martin’s mother attempting to murder him in his sleep. The hollowed out lady seated at the dinner table leads into a comical scene of him packing the rudimentary tools required for his surgery. Everything about his centipede is hilariously crude – his idea of sedation is to just clunk them on the head with an iron bar, suturing is replaced by a staple gun and so on.
2. The way he exults in his car park booth while watching the shitting scene in the First Sequence is comically gratifying.
