Review by Christopher
Added: January 28, 2005
Mr. Karazawa has a sick sister and he's been running experiments for quite some time to try and figure out a way to cure her. The only thing his tests haven't been experimented on have been a human. He gets a call from a man who calls himself Kato who knows all about his tests and experiments. He offers him the perfect test subject, a female human body. The next day he receives the body and begins to run tests on it. First he connects a bunch of wires to certain parts from the face. Such as an eye and an ear he removed from the body, along with her tongue that had to stay in tact. Everything works fine separately, but once he starts getting everything going at the same time, her body starts to burn. Her hand starts to deteriorate and eventually falls off. The body was too old.

Kato pays Karazawa a visit the next day. When Kato offers him a proposition, Karazawa quickly turns it down. Kato then begins to black mail him by showing him the virus he installed into his computer. Kato has one part of the code to fix the virus, his partner (Keiko) has the other half. Now demanding to see his laboratory, Karazawa brings him out back where a giant saw blade comes flying out of nowhere and chops off Kato's legs. After dying from blood loss, Karazawa brings him back to life three days later. But Karazawa was only able to bring back his head. He programs new thoughts into his brain and has him call Keiko to get the other piece of the code.

Keiko arrives with the other piece of the code later that day. When she's brought to see the remaining part of Kato, she drops the code and begins to stroke his face out of sadness. The new memories that were programmed into Kato begin coming into effect as he starts to choke Keiko with a robotic arm Karazawa hooked up to him. His emotions start to go out of control and all the wires he's hooked up to began to short circuit. Keiko knocks over the table Kato is hooked up to and then they both die shortly after. Karazawa wheels in his sister in a wheelchair and begins cutting out Keiko's heart. Now with a healthy heart in hand, his sister has a chance of longer life.

Not really a sequel to the other Guinea Pig films, but it seems as if it could be tied in with the first one, Devil's Experiment. The female body that Kato sent to Karazawa could have easily been played off as the beaten woman from Devil's Experiment. It's not to likely that's what they were going for, but then there was nothing said about it in the film that could make you think differently. This film was also better than the first, even though they can't really be compared since they were completely different types of films. But none the less. The scenery was pretty nice all around. Karazawa's laboratory was done up more on a realistic side. Lots equipment, doctors table, the normal stuff. It wasn't souped up with a million television screens and computer monitors, which was nice.

Plenty of gory scenes that were also staying on track of reality. When Karazawa took out an eyeball or an ear, all the ligaments were still attached to them, which looked incredibly real. Kato's head decayed over time, such as a real head cut from its body and left out in the open would do. When Keiko's heart was cut out, he had to break a few of her ribs to actually get to it. As simple as these things are, they're quite often ignored in movies. Five characters in all, even though one was just a cadaver. Each played their part decently. More enjoyable than the first in the series due to it actually being a real movie rather than a fake snuff-like film.

Final Conclusion: 8/10

Easily the third best of the series, following "He Never Dies" and "Flowers of Flesh and Blood"... this was actually an extremely sad peice... I was so dpressed when it was over... not many (non-Lynch) films can do that to me. 9.2/10

To be honest, I wasn't too crazy about this one. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't great either. I got a little bored with it. I'd give it a 6/10.
