"Listen up, people: DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT BUYING THIS UNLESS YOU ARE HIGHLY TOLERANT OF GORE AND REVOLTING IMAGERY. IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR CHILDREN OR THE EASILY OFFENDED, AND EVEN THOSE WHO THINK THEY LIKE THIS SORT OF THING MAY HAVE TROUBLE WATCHING IT. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I submit for your approval the notorious series of Japanese splatter films that is so far beyond the pale that it was actually investigated by several governments. The GUINEA PIG films are, at their best, both disturbing and humorous, and a unique cinematic (videomatic?) experience for those who are game. If this means you, my advice is to hurry up and buy the GUINEA PIG box before some Congressman decides that it should be banned!"
There is only one Guinea Pig Box Set...and No Other "Similar

"I bought this New from Amazon for $80.00 and felt it was worth every penny. There are no other DVDs like these 4. Each DVD is very different. I could not watch more than one at a time...too intense. You are NOT a True fan of Horror/Cult films unless you see the Guinea Pig Set. This would never have been made in the USA. I read some of the other reviews. There are also Zombies, Talking Heads, Weird Genitals, talking Poop, etc. The makeup and special effects are far better than any of the "Living Dead" George Romero films. The Japanese element is a definite plus and gives it some comic relief and the Extras and behind the scenes footage shows that the actors/actresses had alot of fun doing these Films. Plotwise these are at least as good as 3/4 of the Masters of Horrors Showtime Series. Buy it before it becomes unavailiable or the USA Bans these DVDs!"

"I really liked the film Flower of Flesh and Blood it has the best special effects on a gore movie, also the snuff vision version on the dvd is an experience. The other movies are interesting, Mermaid in a Manhole is good, but he others are funnier than I expected them to be. The box set is pricey and hard to find, great extras, but try to watch them first before purchasing the set."
Pretty good stuff here

"When the Guinea Pig films came out in Japan in the 1980s, they were big direct-to-video smash hits in Japan, and in 1991, Charlie Sheen mistook FOFAB for a snuff film. Now, They are released.
In this classy four disc set, you get all 6 films (Devil's Experiment, Flower Of Flesh And Blood, He Never Dies!, Mermaid In A Manhole, Android Of Notre Dame, Devil Doctor Woman) plus the "Making Of Guinea Pig" documentary (very worth watching) and the "Slaughter Special" (on the DVD named "Guinea Pig's Greatest Moments"), a compilation of all the cool clips from the series. On the FOFAB disc, you even get Hidehi Hino's original FLOWER OF FLESH AND BLOOD manga, and it is very much like the movie. You even get a couple interviews with Hino-san himself.
This is a great box set for splatter fans. If you love gore, buy it!
PS. I found an easter egg on the FOFAB DVD! select "Flower Of Flesh And Blood" On the DVD menu, then once the menu with the lips appears, press down to highlight a tiny splatter, then press enter...then sit back and enjoy FOFAB in "snuff vision"!"
