Some conversion of the property took place prior to filming, such as a cinema room which was converted to form Heiter's basement operating theatre, with real hospital beds and intravenous drips rented from a local hospital.  He contributed dialogue for his character and selected many of his character's outfits from his personal wardrobe. Kranz finds the ward along with Heiter's victims. He severs the ligaments of his victims' knees to prevent leg extension, forcing his victims to crawl. He consulted a real surgeon in Holland, who at first didn't want to help out with the idea due to his Hippocratic oath, but later changed his mind as he feels that film is an art form. Lindsay (Ashley C. Williams) and Jenny (Ashlynn Yennie) are two American tourists in Germany whom attempt to drive to a local nightclub when their car breaks down in the nearby woods. Katsuro confesses to the doctor that he deserves his fate because he had treated his own family poorly, then takes his own life by slitting his throat with a glass shard. He describes in detail how he will surgically connect his three victims mouth-to-anus, so that they share a single digestive system. Inspiration also came from Nazi medical experiments carried out during World War II, such as the crimes of Josef Mengele at the Auschwitz concentration camp.  Six kept secret how the centipede would be formed as long as possible, and Yennie claimed that even her make-up artist did not know, asking Yennie what kind of "suit" the actors would be wearing. The Human Centipede had alles in zich om een cult classic te worden, maar Six haalt maar erg weinig uit het concept. However, the surgeon changed his mind and decided that he liked the idea, and so came up with a method of creating a human centipede. However, Cox was unable to trace any article making this claim.
