Guinea Pig: Flower of Flesh and Blood (1985)

Ginî piggu 2: Chiniku no hana (original title)

Kirara Yûgao Kirara Yûgao ... Victim


From the safety of Tokyo's thick night shadows, an invisible masked predator stalks his unsuspecting next victim: a doomed young woman in black on her way home. As acrid chloroform gets the job done, the fine specimen slowly wakes up in the powerful tormentor's blood-stained pit of torture, only to realise that the real nightmare begins now, with her tied down to a bed next to an extensive collection of common household tools and torture instruments. Now, a horrible vision haunts the pale-faced samurai of suffering, who intends to take his time to dismember the young lady and to disconnect all her limbs from the body. Will death's fragrant stench bring out the red flower's inner beauty? Written by Nick Riganas

A defenseless woman in kidnapped. In a very bizarre place, someone is going to torture her. He will cut off her hands, arms and legs before taking off her head with an axe. He will add her in his collection.

This is Guinea Pig, a serie of torture films, nothing more nothing less! The history spreads an horrifying legend about how hideous and disgusting this movie is. I think this is quite gory with extreme graphic violence but not so horrible. The special effects are obvious but very well made in fact...but not too much realistic to called this a snuff movie!

Finally, Guinea Pig is an experience to live but only for the hardcore fans of this genre of film. The audience not aware of what it is will be shocked to death and very offended. If you like this kind of movie, watch it with a couple of hardcore friends, it may turn in a funny kind of sick show with laughs and horrifying thrills!
