Audience Reviews for Za ginipiggu 5: Notorudamu no andoroido (Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame)

This and Devil Woman Doctor are the heaviest criticised of the Guinea Pig pictures, and neither are up to the standards of the others, except Devil's Experiment, which I ain't a fan of. Still I had a fine time watching this entry, in which a small mad scientist performs strange medical experiments to save his sister. My biggest problem with the film was that I thought it should have been expanded out into more of a proper length movie. The idea of someone going to any lengths to save a loved one is a timeless quality theme and with more downtime between the gore and more fleshed out characters and relationships could, in my opinion have made for a genuinely touching splatter fest. But, this being a Guinea Pig movie the madcap spatter is all people are likely to care about. Its decent but definitely shows its budget, ie. the effects are plenty gruesome at times but look somewhat cheesy. Acting wise this isn't too impressive, though it doesn't help that the plot and writing are thin. I enjoyed this quite a bit, although not nearly as much as Mermaid in a Manhole or He Never Dies. For me it really helped that the happenings are pretty dang strange at times lending a feel of unpredictability to the grue, which I liked a lot. Also, a robot arm does good work at one point and I have a certain odd fondness for low budget robotic effects, having seen a whole lot of low budget science fiction films at an earlier age. In all, I seem to be rating this higher than just about everybody else, but then I am somewhat easily amused and I also love Japanese splatter in all its multi faceted splendour. Plus I was drinking throughout my viewing, which never hurts. So if you want a really great entry in the series, or a quality, serious picture, steer clear. But if you have the time on your hands and a hankering for oddball grisliness, well, you might get a bit of a kick out of this one, cause I sure did.
