To create a palpable and highly atmospheric horrific tone for the film, director Carrozza turned to several horror and exploitation films he loved. The biggest influence on the film was the Japanese film Blind Beast (1969) which the plot draws heavily from. Other major influences include Un Chien Andalou (1929), Peeping Tom (1960), the films of Italian director Mario Bava especially the A Drop Of Water segment from Black Sabbath (1963), the films of John Waters, Alien (1979), Ginî piggu 2: Chiniku no hana (1985), Evil Dead Trap (1988) and a few others. _Guinea Pig 2_ is not a movie Carrozza is particularly fond but nonetheless considers important and impacting. Timothy's first costume being a samurai outfit is a direct visual homage to this film. The internet videos of How To Basic and Showry, a Korean feminist shock vlogger who makes disturbing comedy videos with food, were also quite influential on the movie's aesthetic. See more »
