Did You Know?

Trivia

The film gained some notoriety in 1991 when actor Charlie Sheen viewed it and came to believe that it was an illegal snuff film. He contacted the FBI with his complaint and an investigation ensued, but the movie was eventually proven to be merely a very realistic (yet completely fictional) horror film, and not a document of an actual murder.

The camera's shadow can be seen as it shows a view of a tank during the "Collection" scene. See more »

Alternate Versions

DVD edition released by Unearthed Films contains a special re-edit as an easter egg. This version removes the majority of the dialog and POV shots and features intentionally degraded picture quality to simulate a bootlegged, multiple-generation video of an "actual" snuff movie. See more »

As Extreme as it gets!
25 July 2003 | by chanelit-1See all my reviews

I've seen all eight of the notorious ‘Guinea Pig' series from Japan and can tell you this is by far the most extreme. A random young woman is kidnapped, drugged and tied to a bed. She is then slowly hacked to pieces by a guy in a samurai uniform. It only lasts for about thirty minutes, but during those minutes you are glued to the screen witnessing some of the cleverest and most realistic special effects ever committed to celluloid. This is about as gory and nasty as it gets and even seasoned gore-hounds will be distressed by some of the onscreen display.

Bought to notoriety by Charlie Sheen who mistook this for a snuff film, the FBI spent months tracking down the Director and eventually found him. Even by today's standards this is so extreme that most DVDs of the film also contain a making of just in case you start to believe what you're seeing.

Admittedly it's doubtful that you'll find this one in your local Blockbuster by accident, but be warned – this is very strong stuff indeed. For fans of extreme cinema, I cannot recommend this enough.
