Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame (1988) Synopsis:

A dwarf conducts all sorts of vicious experiments on live subjects in order to find a cure for his dying sister.

Review:

This really bizarre and twisted story shows a pseudo-scientist dwarf who, in order to save his sister, conducts horrible experiments on human beings. At least that is what I understood because not everything makes sense in that film. The atrocious experiments that are carried do not seem to have anything to do with curing a disease but instead seems to be closer to building a Frankenstein monster.

Despite an effort to have a more elaborate plot than the previous Guinea Pig movies, this sequel ends up the most boring of all. The main turn off for me was the gore. I mean, they all point of this bad series is to show some of the most atrocious scenes ever put on screen. Here instead, these scenes look ridiculous. Bodies look like plastic dolls, blood is pink and there are a lot of awkward manga-like sound effects that turn the movie into a comedy-like feature.

In the end, the effort to insert a decent story in the film deserves to be noticed, but I largely preferred when there was no story at all – but at least some good gore.
