Plot – Spoilers:
The second in the Guinea Pig series gets more into gore territory.

Hideshi Hino (real-life manga artist) receives a snuff tape depicting the brutal murder of a woman along with a long letter from a self-proclaimed fan of his work. Hideshi proceeds to add some material to the footage which becomes Flower of Flesh & Blood.

The received tape shows a man (actually played Hideshi Hino) injecting a kidnapped woman with a combination of drugs that causes her to lose the sensation of pain. He then sordidly disembodies her systematically before gouging out her eyeballs. That’s it. Over 40 sordid minutes. The effects are pretty great for a 1985 movie especially when you consider how many gore movies nowadays are made with inferior realism.

Flower of Flesh & Blood gained notoriety in 1991 when Charlie Sheen watched it and sent it to the FBI believing it to be a real snuff film. How he managed to feel that way, only he knows, but it eventually led to the series being shut down (Six films had been produced by then). The producer of the films was anyway already under investigation by the Japanese police and had to release a ‘making of’ to prove the films were works of fiction.

Flower of Flesh & Blood achieved further notoriety and criticism when it was claimed that Japanese serial killer Tsutomu Miyazaki who cut off the hands and feet of his child-victims was inspired by this movie. This claim was later dismissed, though another Guinea Pig movie was found among the video collection at his home

    This film is sick as fuck. That dude licks it like a ring pop. Righteous. 10/10 film for a Gorehound. The 1st Guinea Pig lacked any comedy, and was just some weird as hell torture flick. Like why throw meat at her? Is she vegan? This one actually had more character. The dude is fucked.

    kinda reminds me of a scene in an anime i saw, but painfully realistic.

    A complete waste of time. How anyone ever believed this or the first GP is beyond me. Terrible in all regards, far from convincing in any way. Don’t waste your time on either. The whole “testing your limits” with these films is a joke. The lack of any real reaction from either of the victims in both Part 1 and 2 clearly demonstrate how cheesy these “movies” are. Give me a Lars Von Trier any day.

    Just watched this for first time and I must say it was very sick and nasty and the man was very sick just completely horrid he was. My godds he made such a huge mess. That poor girl. I usually love Gore but this one really got to me and I didn’t really like it. I felt to bad for the girl and just really wanted to help her and kill that demon man

    Well, the practical interview for the Tesco butchers has got a bit darker lately… it was an okay watch.
