What do Saw, Hostel, Martyrs, and Haute Tension all have in common? Apart from being labeled as ‘Extreme Cinema‘ or ‘New French Extremity‘, they all owe a debt to a series of six horror films from Japan. Known as the Guinea Pig series, these films include horrific content and imagery that paved the way for modern extreme horror films.

Based On The Essay: Guinea Pig: The Legacy Of An Extreme Horror Film Series by R.F. Blackstone
