People Are Saying New Movie Is Just As Disturbing As The Human Centipede

Horror fans, do we have a treat for you - a new movie out on Disney Plus is so messed up, people are comparing it to The Human Centipede. Watch the trailer here:


Fresh isn’t your run-of-the-mill horror, though, as it starts off in similar style to your classic romcom.

The plot follows Noa, a woman who is sick of the modern dating world and the apps that come with it (something I think we can all relate to).


But when she meets a guy named Steve at the shops, she decides to give him a chance and they exchange numbers. 

So far, so normal - but when Noa accepts Steve’s invite to a weekend getaway, she soon discovers her new partner has some unusual appetites.

And it’s at this point things take a turn for the weird.

Critics and audiences alike have been both delighted and disgusted with the flick, which stars Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones as Noa and Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan as Steve. 

GamesRadar writer Matt Maytum described Fresh as ‘a twisted genre-flipper that requires a strong stomach’. 

Elsewhere, Digital Spy’s Ian Sandwell said: “Our only word of warning, it's probably best you don't have a full meal before watching.”

Similar sentiments were shared by viewers at home, with one writing on Twitter: “Briah got me watching this movie called Fresh. This s**t is insane. Like Human Centipede level insane.”


Another said: “I’m watching Fresh the Hulu film and and it’s giving me Human Centipede vibes.”

“The Disney+ movie Fresh basically showed that meeting people organically is much worse than meeting them online lmfao,” quipped a third, adding, “That was disturbing.”

Others were quick to praise the acting on display alongside the more disturbing beats of the movie. 


“The kidnapping/serial killer/torture stuff is not my genre of Horror,” commented one online. 

“But Fresh was solid. It's very gross, extremely disturbing, and I probably won't watch it again, but Sebastian Stan and @DaisyEdgarJones absolutely crushed their roles, and the pacing is perfect.”

The film dropped on Hulu in the US on 4 March, and was eventually released on 18 March in the UK on Disney Plus after being pushed back a few weeks. 

So what are you waiting for? If this is your messed up cup of tea, it’s worth adding Fresh to the watchlist - just make sure your stomach is ready.
