has anyone ever seen these films? they were a series of horror films made in japan that were eventually banned. i always wanted to watch the second one, "flower of flesh and blood". supposedly it's the most realistic looking horror film to date. i found a video of it on youtube but it only shows a little clip.

guinea pig films:
1. devil's experiment
2. flower of flesh and blood
3. he never dies
4. mermaid in a manhole
5. android of notre dame
6. devil woman doctor

from wikipedia
The first two films in the Japanese Guinea Pig series are designed to look like authentic snuff films; the video is grainy and unsteady, as if recorded by amateurs. In the late 1980s, the Guinea Pig films were one of the inspirations for Japanese serial killer Tsutomu Miyazaki's murders of preschool girls.

The most infamous Guinea Pig film is probably Flower of Flesh and Blood, in which a woman, apparently drugged, is shown chained to a bed as a man in a samurai costume slowly kills her through torture and dismemberment. After viewing a portion of this film, actor Charlie Sheen was convinced the murder depicted was genuine and contacted the MPAA, who then contacted the FBI.[7] FBI agent Dan Codling informed them that the FBI and the Japanese authorities were already investigating the film makers, who were forced to prove that the special effects were indeed fake. [

While the actual Guinea Pig movies are not snuff films themselves, two of them purport to be based on real snuff films. The Devil's Experiment was supposedly based on a film sent to the Tokyo police in which a small group of people dismember a young woman in an attempt to see how much the body can take. Flower of Flesh and Blood was supposedly made after manga artist, Hideshi Hino, received a letter, 54 stills, and an 8 mm film through the mail. The letter described what was on the film. He watched it and shortly after turned it over to the Tokyo police, who could not identify either the girl or the murderer.

if any of u guys are into gory horror films such as these guinea pig films, i also recomend checking out a 3 part series of horror films called August Underground. they can only be bought online and maybe in specialty shops but not in blockbuster or anywhere like that. i saw one of them and it looked SO realistic. here's a trailer for one of em'.

The gore is actually really good. If anything, you can view the movies as a really good special effects team showing off. I highly recommend the two films directed by Hideshi Hino, the master of horror manga. Mermaid in a Manhole is beautifully sad and deals well with the theme of loss and Flower of Flesh and Blood is really well directed despite the gruesome images.
