The Human Centipede (2010) Directed by Tom Six
The House of the Devil (2009) Directed by Ti West
I have to admit I totally rushed this week’s CIY. I usually have these planned in advance, sometimes a few weeks worth but I just dropped the ball this week. I was planning on doing a Horror one but couldn’t quickly settle on two classics to pit against one another and this one kind of quickly sprung into my head.
Two great recent horror debuts that were written and directed by two promising guys in the world of horror. Both are homages/revivals of bygone eras in Horror cinema… Human Centipede of the Cronenberg’s Biological Horror of the 80s; while House of the Devil takes on the Supernatural 70s-80s. Plus both were IFC championed releases. So… What if only one could exist between the two, which would it be? Choice is yours…- My Pal the Crook
