Guinea Pig is about three men who abuse a woman through a serious of “experimental” torturing tactics starting at the least painful tactic of hitting to the most severe pain of cutting.
As the torture tactics become more severe, the three men start to use tools such a wrenches and syringes to make the woman endure more pain. As the scenes grow in intensity, so too will the amount of blood and gore.
The Grave Review
There are little words needed to describe this film. This is nothing more than a snuff film with no story line that shows three men torturing a captured girl and letting her remains lie in a net in the forest. The runtime of the film is about 43 minutes. So without further ado, we will go into detail what actually happens in this film. The film starts with the woman already captured tied to a chair and is divided into various segments each displaying a different form of torture. Here is a list in order of the torture scenes:
1. Three men start hitting her continuously.
2. Men start kicking her continuously.
3. Pliers are used to pull and twist her skin.
4. She is forced to drink alcohol and spin her in a chair causing her to vomit
5. She is tied with a rope and headphones are placed on her head with what sounds like static waves for 20 hours.
6. Her fingernail is ripped off.
7. Tie her two wrists and put her on a table – her elbows appear to be ripped up and bruised
8. Worms (or maggots) are placed on her face whereby they eat at her wounds.
9. Her hand is sliced open with a syringe and a hammer is used to hit the wound.
10. The men throw what appears to be guts or bloody organs at the woman.
11. A chain is placed over her neck and a needle-like tool is inserted through her head to her eye causing her eye to fill up with blood
This is 43 minutes of a disgusting, thoughtless production. But we will be generous and give it credit for its grotesque but effective special effects work because there is still skill required for that element.
This is the first of seven Guinea Pig films consisting of six different conceptual films and the seventh being a mash-up of the previous films.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews Guinea Pig 1: Devil’s Experiment (1985) one grave out of five graves.
