A brutal horror movie that’s been branded ‘worse than The Human Centipedeis now streaming.

The Human Centipede was described as ‘the most horrific film ever made’ when it came out in 2009. 

The film tells the tale of a twisted surgeon who kidnaps three tourists and sews them together, from mouth to behind, forming a literal ‘human centipede’.

At the time of its release, it was described as ‘twisted’, ‘depraved’ and ‘vile’ – but horror fans think they’ve found an even more disturbing movie.

Tusk is about a man who is surgically turned into a walrus by an eccentric recluse and it’s leaving viewers ‘literally traumatised’.

The movie was directed by Kevin Smith, who is best known for his work on the cult film Clerks. 

It stars Justin Long as an unpleasant podcaster who travels to Canada and meets a man who has a strange fascination with walruses, specifically one called ‘Mr Tusk’.

Though the movie was first released in 2014 to mixed reviews, it has gained popularity recently after being added to Amazon Prime.

Since its streaming release, fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the ‘unforgettable’ movie.
