'The Human Centipede' creator Tom Six has a new "vile and inhumane" movie on the horizon
The Onania Club is going to be director Tom Six's first movie out of The Human Centipede franchise in the last 10 years. It is being produced by him and Ilona Six
It has been three years since The Human Centipede trilogy was completed and writer-director Tom Six is about to make a comeback with his upcoming horror film The Onania Club. The movie's plot has been kept a secret as of yet, but the filmmaker revealed that the film will have “mostly strong female characters” and that it will “definitely pass the Bechdel test with flying colors.”
For those who don't know what the Bechdel test is, the test asks whether a work of fiction features at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man.
The psychological thriller's cast includes Jessica Morris, Darcy DeMoss, Deborah Twiss, Karen Strassman, and Flo Lawrence. The movie's plot is still a mystery, but we do know that The Onania Club is set in Hollywood, California.
As per the exclusive press release, the movie “will be one of the most vile, inhumane movie experiences of all time.” And for anybody who has been through The Human Centipede experience can vouch for the fact that Six - who is producing the movie with Ilona Six through their Six Company Production banner - will deliver on this.
The Human Centipede had become a cult film of sorts right from the moment of its release, but there are several other masterpieces by Six that have managed to garner a cult following. Feature films like I Love Dries, Honeyz, and Gay in Amsterdam have all come from the same creator.
The Centipede trilogy was launched in 2009 and had sequels in 2011 and 2015. As for The Onania Club, this is Six's first film out of the franchise in the last 10 years.
The film's first official poster includes the line: “Come and see, see and come.” The tagline is suggestive on its own, but "onania" itself is an archaic term for masturbation. The film is sure to stir up some controversies when it releases in fall this year.
