Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A worthy book, but far, far from a definitive study or history. Littered with distracting shifts between somewhat jejune first-person informal and faux journalistic styles, the book lacks any substantial grammar or punctuation. Also, the large type formatting and slight 64 pages give the disconcerting feeling of it being a children's book. There are plentiful screen shots though, many in colour. For in-depth, adult and cultural discussion see the first edition of Killing for Culture by David Kerekes and David Slater.

An interesting book for those who want to seek out the darker side of Japanese horror. Having already seen these films, it was good to read
the history behind them and the controversy that these films caused...well mainly the first two, I would recommend this book to those that are curious about these films.

Ok, first off, before reading this book I had never seen any of the films expertly disected herein by Mr Storm so it was with some trepidation that I entered into this sick and seedy underbelly of faux snuff that is Guinea Pig: The Darker Side Of Japanese Cinema. Fwah's work here is great, starting with a brief history of his own journey as a horror fan and the dark delights that paved the way for his first viewing of what is possibly the most notorious film series in history before focusing on the myths and legends surrounding the series. Fwah then gives us a detailed rundown of each individual chapter. Titles, run times and availability are highlighted before going into gruesome details, describing the nihilistic nastieness to point of inducing that feeling of I HAVE TO SEE THESE FILMS!!! And so far I have seen the first 2 (The most notorious and disturbing of the series) and can honestly say that without this book I may well have been sick (or worse still, done a Sheen and contacted the authorities!) but lucky for me I had Mr Storm to clue me in first eh!
