Review by Christopher
Added: March 02, 2005
An unmarked package arrived at Hideshi Hino's home one day. He recieved an eight millimeter film, fifty four pictures and a nineteen page letter explaining the video and the pictures. The eight millimeter film shows a woman slowly getting slaughtered by a man dressed in a shogun samurai outfit. Being so shocked by the film, Hino took it upon himself to make semi-documentary based on what he saw.

A woman walking home one night is attacked by a man and knocked out with chloroform. He brings her back to his home and ties her up to a bed. When she awakes, she sees the man sharpening a large metal tool. When she begins to scream, he takes out a live chicken from a basket. He tells her that this is her fate, then chops its head off with a knife. He gives her a drug that puts her in a state of ecstasy. Not only can she not feel pain, she actually gets excited by it. To show that she feels no pain, the man stabs her with a very thin knife. She doesn't even flinch.

Now he explains the reason he's doing all of this. The most beautiful thing in the world is a flower, and the flower comes from the other most beautiful thing in the world, death. First, red roses from her wrists. He takes out a switch blade knife and slowly cuts off her wrists. Next, full blossoms from her shoulder and from her red lips. He cuts into her shoulder with the same knife, then brings out a hammer and chisel to break the bone. Now, for the last moment, a big flower emerges around her petal and wraps her body with blooms and fragrance. She's cut at the knee's with a hacksaw.

And now, her bowels start dancing wildly on her body and blooms many blossoms. A surgical knife is used to open her stomach. He uses string to hold her stomach open as he plays with her guts. Next, she wears a necklace of bright red flowers around her neck. An oddly shaped axe is used to chop off her head. The final stage is taking her precious jewels, which are her eyes. He digs them out with a spoon and begins to suck on one of them. When the brutality ends, he shows off his collection. All sorts of dismembered body parts are set-up in a room as if it were a garden. Arms in flower pots, a water (blood) fountain of hands, fish tanks filled with blood and limbs, and so much more.

This is the real second part of the Guinea Pig series. It resembles a lot to the first, but is much better. The girl being drugged was a big help since it caused her to not scream. She screamed a little when she was being attacked at the begining of the film and a little more when she was first tied up. There was more screaming in the first one than there was pain. All of the gore was really bloody and graphic. I didn't really find any particular mutilation to be the best since they were all greatly done. But the worst was when he dug out her eye with a spoon, and even that was good looking.

His garden wasn't that impressive, even though it made sense to be in the film and all of the props looked really good. There was just something about it that gave it a sort of corny feel. Plus there was a lot set-up in that little room that had to have five different angles, then zoomed in and out a few dozen times. Only two actors and one of them didn't really have to do anything. Which turned out very well. The dialogue was even less. The only line the girl had was when she shouted "No" when the man first attacked her. The guy only explained what he was doing and why he was doing it, which he didn't mess up. One of the better Guinea Pig films, even though they're all classic.

Final Conclusion: 9/10

this is my favorite of the guinea pig series, followed by mermaid in a manhole.
I really like the flower blooming concept, its beautiful in its own creepy way.

I especially love the DVD copy that includes the manga made by the exposed artist. This was some nasty shite... Yes, I do own it. 9.4/110

I personally think this movie blows away the first one, espically in the gore department. I just enjoyed this one a lot more that the first. And yes, I'd have to agree this is one of the better films in the Guinea Pig series. Definately one of the best ones to pick up to get the feel of what the Guiena Pig films are all about.

Better than the first one.
