Oh ffs

If you have a stronger stomach than us and you've finished your breakfast, there's a new Human Centipede 3 trailer freshly emerged from the darker recesses of the internet. Needless to say, it's not safe for work. Unless you work in some kind of unlicensed sex dungeon.

Creator/director Tom Six promises that the latest in his unlikely franchise will be "100 per cent politically incorrect", albeit with some stab being made at satirising the correctional system being made in this prison-set threequel. On this evidence, there'll be all the usual weirdcore nastiness to contend with too. Surely it's only a matter of time before the centipede community hits him with some kind of writ for defamation of character.

Runs the official synopsis:

"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 which could change the American 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."

Human Centipede 3 hits US cinemas and VOD on May 22. No word of a UK release yet, or, for that matter, an attempt at BBFC classification.
