Language: Japanese (English Subtitles)

Plot – Spoilers:
The first in the series that was so bad, the Producer Satoru Ogura (also Director of this one) had to show ‘making of’ footage to prove it wasn’t a real snuff movie.

Guinea Pig 1 involves a young woman being tormented and tortured over several days by three men in a dark room, as well as outdoors. The torture here doesn’t just rely on gore but is well thought out, like the group of men were true sadists who wanted their victim to experience pure suffering and misery.

The victim is submissive and appears aware, exhausted and reconciled to her fate because she doesn’t shriek or scream for the most part, but sits through a lot of it merely whimpering.

The 40+ minute long ordeal is divided into chapters which are helpfully titled Hit, Kick, Needle, Claw, Burn, Worm etc so you can be prepared for what’s coming up next for her.

Not to exaggerate, but even seasoned watchers of extreme cinema will feel the sadism off their screens with this one.

    I’m not sure how I’ve made it to age 50 (almost) after a lifelong love affair with exploitation, art cinema, trash, gore, etc and not seen the GP films – and I will watch them all – but this first entry is absolutely garbage. There is a long list of films from yesterday that still hold up today, but this is not one or them. I tempered my excitement going in to this, as I knew it could never live up to the cult status it has attained. Every aspect of this film is fake- ie there is nothing realistic about any of the individual terrors the lady faces. Slapping…come on…every single slap is seen NOT hitting her face, but the slapper’s own hand; kicking…seriously…I’ve seem more realistic kicking at an 8u soccer game. Each point of the story is faced with this same level of phoniness. Had I seen it when it came out (I was 15), MAYBE I would have thought differently, but even then, having seen countless Italo-horror masterpieces, and even some of the American ones (eg Evil Dead etc), this would have likely disappointed me then as well.

    I hear that the next couple films In the series are better, and for crying out loud…I hope so. There is no way I would recommend anyone watch this. Not because it’s too hard core, but because it lacks ANY core. Lame.

    ***This is in no way an indictment of the folks on this site. I appreciate finding the films here and the work that goes in to archiving these films…no matter how bad they are.

    Pentru anul 1985 este procedat in regula…am vazut filme mult mai proaste din punct de vedere al efectelor chiar si dupa 1985.Am punctat doar ideea in sine.adica de tortura in mare parte si nu neaparat expresiile actritei.

    I mean, I had fun watching it but it’s not as bad as randos on the internet make it out to be. The fact that it’s clearly simulated and all that made it not so shocking but if you’re squeamish, I’m sure something in there will make you grossed out. Don’t let all the mystery and rumor around it get you too excited. At this rate, the violence is pretty run of the mill for most horror films.
