This one proves that it's all a big fake, and the myth of the Guinea Pig movies being actual snuff is not true. The girl from "Devil's Experiment" laughs while her flesh gets twisted. The guy from "He Never Dies" longs to take the latex applications off. Written by

"Making of Guinea Pig" is a relatively entertaining affair which looks at the behind-the-scenes goings-on for the first three installments of this notorious series, "Devil's Experiment", "Flowers of Flesh and Blood" and "He Never Dies".
We see the talented prosthetic effects men at work and there's an insight into the lengthy process involved in filming the more elaborate scenes.
Despite the sombre atmosphere of some of the "Guinea Pig" films, it appears that there was a fun, "gung-ho" atmosphere on set. The unfortunate "victim" of "Flowers of Flesh and Blood," Kirara Yugao, is seen laughing as the effects guys prepare their next scene. If nothing else, the release of this documentary on DVD should dispel the rumours behind this project forever.
A somewhat lightweight documentary, I'd give it a 6 out of 10.
