MOVIE REVIEW: American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore (2014) [SPOILERS]

In Stephen Biro’s firsStephen Biro's American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore (2014)t film, American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore, we are introduced to a gorehound’s wet dream. Drawing a decent amount of inspiration from Hideshi Hino’s original Guinea Pig film, Flower of Flesh and Blood, Biro adds onto what was already a rather fucked up concept by adding a second victim and providing more of a plot that has some heavy religious connotations. In addition, instead of a single cameraman, we are given multiple perspectives examining all of the mutilation and gore up close. Filmed with an 80s style in mind, we see the cameramen using small, handheld VHS recorders and have to change film at various points.

Spoiler Alert Nosferatu

Stephen Biro's American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore (2014)Set in a warehouse, we watch as this group of sadists and filmmakers go through a near-ritualistic approach in dismembering the two women. The main antagonist is known as “The Actor” and it is job to perpetrate all of the various acts of violence while the cameramen watch on and film every gory detail. To start though, the victims are drugged so that they don’t feel any of the pain from the mutilation. Add to that, before any limb is lopped off, tourniquets are applied to ensure that neither woman bleeds out. The deaths are slow and methodically calculated to say the least. Having recently watched Flower of Flesh and Blood, the parallels in this film are incredible down to the last detail. Implements similar to what Hino used are used by “The Actor” as well.

Stephen Biro's American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore (2014)So to not spoil all the wonderful scenes of gore, it felt apt to just mention a few of the brutal moments that made the sadist in me dance. From running a straight razor across one victim’s eye to sawing the mouth and jaw in half so that the mouth hangs open limply, Biro has written something uniquely brutal that I think every gorehound will enjoy! I especially liked the use of a box cutter to slice an incision on the skin around one victim’s arm. This then progressed to “The Actor” peeling the skin down off the woman’s arm. That scene is a helluva toe curler and it is done spectacularly well. All of the special effects are well done and none of the gore feels staged or superficial.
If you’re a gorehound seeking some delightful moments of evisceration, disembowelment, and even a scene of cannibalism. I highly recommend watching American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore if you love a good gory, pseudo-snuff film. The film can be purchased directly from Unearthed Films.
