Dutch Director Tom Six is to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Netherlands Film Academy. Six, who shot to fame when he directed the controversial but popular box office hits The Human Centipede: First Sequence and its sequels The Human Centipede: Full Sequence and The Human Centipede: Final Sequence said that he was elated by the news.

The official statement from the Academy read:

"We here at the Netherlands Film Academy would like to honour Mr. Tom Six with a lifetime achievement award for filmmaking. It is because of people like Mr. Six who inspire up and coming young filmmakers with his bold attitude towards movie-making. He is not afraid to take on stories that are bizarre, extreme and what people would normally call taboo and this is what being a great movie director is all about."

This is what Six had to say about the honour:

"I am so elated by this news. When I initially did the first Human Centipede I never really anticipated the kind of success that it was going to have. I was a bit apprehensive because the content of the film may have turned people off. Lo and behold the response to the film was great and people flocked to the cinemas in droves to see the movie and that inspired me to do the sequels which were also just as successful. I think I basically revolutionized the horror genre with those films."

He continued:

"After the first movie I was told that it was a cinematic masterpiece and that in a few years' time it will be ranked among the all-time favourite horror classics like Cannibal Holocaust."

Six concluded:

"If my films can be compared to Cannibal Holocaust then I know for a fact that I am doing something right. So I guess I am fully deserving of the accolade that I am about to receive."
