Guinea Pig two: Flower of Flesh and Claret, was supposedly withdrawn from the marketplace, and has achieved detail notoriety because of an incident in which American actor Charlie Sheen is said to have watched the film and believed that it depicted the actual killing and dismemberment of a real woman, prompting him to report it to government.

Republic of guinea Pig
films were released on DVD by distributor Unearthed Films. Every bit a tribute to the Japanese flick series, Unearthed Films began producing a series of horror films titled

[18]
motion picture written and directed by Hideshi Hino, based again on his horror manga works.[xvi]
[19]
Sources differ on whether information technology is the fourth or sixth picture show in the series.[ane]
[14]
[19]
In a 2009 interview with
Vice, Hino said that he had “nothing to do with” the fourth
Guinea Sus scrofa
film,[5]
implying that he does not consider
Mermaid in a Manhole
to be the fourth entry in the serial. However, Stephen Biro, co-founder of the dwelling video distribution visitor Unearthed Films, listed
Mermaid in a Manhole
as the 4th picture in the series.[1]
In his volume
The Encyclopedia of Japanese Horror Films, Salvador Jimenez Murguía claims that it was “the sixth

The plot of
Mermaid in a Manhole
follows an artist who has become estranged from his wife. I day while visiting the sewers below the streets of Okinawa, he encounters a mermaid that he had once met as a kid.[19]
Afterwards noticing that she has boils growing on her trunk, the artist offers to assist her, and brings the mermaid to his house to go on illustrating her.

Afterward, the artist’s two neighbours, who were intrigued by what the artist had been doing later on one of them establish a fish head in the trash, go to investigate, only flee afterward they come across the artist property the pieces of the mermaid while listlessly singing virtually her expiry.

When the local law take control of the scene and investigate, they observe that instead of the dismembered trunk existence that of a mermaid, it was that of a man woman instead. The neighbours are interviewed, and everyone suspects the creative person to have killed his wife, a argument which the investigation finds to exist truthful; hallucinating, the schizophrenic artist had murdered his married woman, who had been suffering from tum cancer. Now imprisoned, the creative person sits, manically muttering to himself about how he was sure he had killed the mermaid. Still, despite all the bear witness confronting it, a unmarried calibration was found in the bathtub in the artist’south firm, belonging to an unidentified species.[18]



Android of Notre Dame

is a 1990[ane]
[14]
[fifteen]
film directed past Hajime Tabe.[15]
Much like

Devil Adult female Doctor
is the fourth or sixth entry in the serial.[ten]
[xiv]
The front end cover art for the VHS release of the film past Sai Enterprise describes it every bit the fourth motion picture in the serial.[21]
[

According to Salvador Jimenez Murguía: “despite being chronologically labeled as the quaternary in the series, [Devil Woman Doc] is often referred to as the final [Guinea Squealer] film.”[22]

Devil Woman Doctor
tells the story of a female physician played by Japanese drag actor Peter.[16]
[22]
[23]
The film takes the form of several vignettes in which she encounters numerous patients, including a family whose heads explode if they get upset and a woman whose centre explodes when she becomes scared, a man with dissociative identity disorder who finds a new life every bit a street comedian, a yakuza member with a sentient tumour with a homo face growing on his breadbasket, and a zombie with a withal-living girlfriend. The medico then saves a woman from an animate internal organ before coming together a human who sweats blood, and attempts to remove a living tattoo from some other patient, who she somewhen has to flay live to finally remove the troublesome ink. In the last scene, a group of four men discuss their particularly bizarre conditions. The first patient produces soybean paste under his feet and tin spit eggs containing babe aliens from his oral fissure, the second has an elastic penis, the third constantly emits fume from his trunk, and the fourth has a centre which moves around inside him. The Devil Woman Doctor then arrives on the scene and proclaims to the audience that each of the four conditions presented by the patients are incurable. As the credits gyre, several of the pic’s characters hit each other with metal discs coated in abrupt metal spikes, causing large amounts of claret to spurt from them, though no one appears to be seriously injured despite the graphic scene.[24]
[25]
Rather than horror, the tone of this installment is more than akin to extremely trigger-happy and surreal slapstick comedy.[26]
