How Many Until it's a Millipede? Human Centipede 2 Trailer

If you think about it, the first human centipede only had eight legs, which is hardly centipedal. Though the “centi-” prefix is inaccurate with regard to actual centipedes, who only rarely have as many as a hundred legs, even the centipede species with the fewest legs manages twenty. I’m just saying that if a film is going to declare that it is 100% medically accurate as it makes an intestinal conga line out of poor unlucky folks, it should at the very least strive to be entomologically accurate as well. And at the very least, I insist that the inevitable third entry in the series be dubbed Human Millipede.

Here’s the first trailer for the second film, which is being subtitled “Full Sequence.” I can only assume that means a full hundred legs, or 25 victims:

Whoa there mislabeling cowboy, that’s not a trailer. That is a bunch of actors practicing their emotiveness in front of a television. Hell, they’re not even pretending to watch the second film, they’re pretending to watch the first film. That’s just lazy fake trailer making. Really, they could be watching anything that induces violent vomit.
