Year: 1985
Directed by: Hideshi Hino
Starring: Hideshi Hino, Hiroshi Tamura, Kirara Yugao
Country: Japan, Asian Cinema
Language: Japanese (English Subtitles)
Runtime: 00:41:58
Genres: Gore-Gruesome-Splatter, Sexual-Violence against Women, Snuff, Insects, Violence Against-Relationships with Animals, Serial Killers

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.

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.

>the lack of real reaction from either of the victims
In Guinea Pig 2 at least, it’s because she was drugged. The guy even mentions that she’s under some kind of anesthesia. So she’s semi-conscious, but she won’t feel any pain.

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

When you have seen in ync how Mexican drug traffickers mutilate themselves, you notice how it lacks more realism to the effects

i watched this one a long while ago. i wanted to see it cause this is the one charlie sheen thought was a real snuff film. i found it pretty boring to sit through but it did make my skin crawl a bit. the sfx are pretty impressive! 4 stars, it’s a meh but not bad at all.

Geez the special effects in this are better than the first but the sound effects WTF. Might as well have an Ed Edd n Eddy sound compilation overtop with how cartoony and low quality they are. I just dont get how these movies have earned their reputation other than the sheer exploitation of it all

Overall it was okay. A lot better than the first GP movie, BUT..i’m sorry i just can’t take him seriously, What’s up with all that makeup? Why they had to paint his teeth black? Every time they showed his face i tried not to laugh.

On the other hand at least this one had a actual storyline and sfx are pretty good.

This thing is just like Postal series, but reverse. First one was just a comedy, but the Sequel is just insane.

Charlie Sheen thought this was a real snuff movie … do we know if the version he watched also had English subtitles? As that would be even more hilarious.
Chase don’t watch this film as it has a fake chicken being beheaded and we know what a sensitive snowflake you are. Btw Chase it was wrong of me to suggest you watch Disney+ as Bambi’s mum dies and I don’t want to intentionally traumatize you.
The special effects in this film are very good when you consider it was made in 1985 but ultimately it is pure torture porn with no plot of any description. So based on the absence of any plot I score it 1/5 blood blossums (though if your into gore for the sake of gore then I recommend watching this short 42 min gore fest if you haven’t already seen it).

Fell asleep half way through, I found the Samurai guy goofy. No way anyone actually thought this was real.

I don’t know why I’m back here… But I guess it’s time to go for round two with this one. Watched it for the first time when I was 18, and now, three years later, I’m going at it again. Here goes nothing…
