To celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Dark Knight’s theatrical release, episode 47 of The Electric Shadows Podcast has gone big.

The lowdown: Six years after launching The Human Centipede onto the global stage, and four years after part II was banned in the UK before receiving a cut release, director Tom Six completes his trilogy. Dieter Laser, the mad scientist from the original, is here a prison warden, and Laurence R. Harvey, the psycho from the sequel, his hapless sidekick. Both are wracking their brains for a solution to an unruly prison population and find the cheeky solution staring them in the face, even if it’s likely to bum out the inmates...
