This is a parody of the first two films in the Guinea Pig series. Those were extremely violent, shocking and had no room for humor. Part 3 is a comedy. As opposed to Parts 1 and 2, it is about self-mutilation and suicide; not about torture and murder. It also has a significant supernatural element that lightens the tone. Basically, this new installment puts a nail in the franchise’s continuity.
A narrator presents this story like some great mystery; a mystery as deep as alien conspiracies. From the look of it, this is a stupid show about a man chopping himself down. The mystery he speaks of is ultimately revealed, but it only makes things confusing. An honorable mention goes to a single scene of partial nudity that’s completely out of context.
Watching a man kill himself slowly without fully realizing that’s what he’s doing, presented with an ounce of humor, can be a guilty pleasure. The main actor is funny. His lines are hilarious. His character is relatively sympathetic but highly improbable. His whole storyline is improbable. This is not a good film but it has more meat on its bone than its predecessors.
