This horror short is so gruesome it could be mistaken for snuff. This was obviously film director Satoru Ogura’s intention. He wanted to shock and he wanted to create controversy. Guinea Pig: Devil's Experiment won’t win the award for best picture. It isn’t pretty. It isn’t artsy. It isn’t creative and it isn’t fun to sit through. Watch this if you want to be able to say you’ve seen it all.
If the filmmakers and actors truly didn’t injure their victim, then their ultimate merit was to make us believe they did. The budget is so minimal and the production value inexistent; why would the violence be the only thing properly executed? The effects are by far the best aspect of this film. You get viscera, maggots, pulled fingernails and too many face slaps.
This is apparently based on a manga. What a boring comic book this must be. There’s not fantasy. There’s no place for interpretation. The film doesn’t even have a score. It’s hard to say anything good about this production. I’ll say this: the last five minutes are particularly intense and contain practical effects that look so real you’ll believe you saw a real murder.
