Two women are abducted by a group of snuff filmmakers and brought into a Hellish nightmare of unmistakable brutality, viciousness and destruction that will leave every viewer shocked, amazed and awestruck.
A mad doctor displays a selection of her more gruesome case studies. Starting with one family whose heads explode if they get angry and a woman whose heart explodes if she's surprised, the doctor then presents us with a man whose right half wants to kill his left. Other subjects put on display are the effects of going to a sauna if you're a man who sweats blood, the possibilities of romance between woman and zombie, and a game of one- upmanship between hospital patients.

Some pathetic prosthetics and some effects that are well doctored.
Well, this is certainly the standout oddity in a series not really lacking in oddity to start with. The fourth of the "guinea pig" movies is a patchwork comedy more akin to something the Zucker boys would create if only they threw lots of gore on screen alongside the scattershot gags.
Do I even bother describing the plot? There's a female doctor introducing a variety of memorable cases, from the family suffering from an affliction that sees their heads exploding when angered to a man with a second face on his stomach to a man that sweats blood and much more. Yes, it is just as bizarre as it sounds.
Even more bizarre, for me anyway, is how the final main skit feels like some Asian nausea-inducing riff on the famous "Four Yorkshiremen" sketch (for the most well-known rendition you have to check out the Monty Python version) and how it constantly surprises you by becoming even more infantile when you keep thinking it has already bottomed out.
The worst of the series, though completists will find some of the effects/gags amusing and there is an undeniable sense of fun about the whole thing, even through the end credit sequence.
