When we first started the Who Goes There Podcast in May 2013, I wanted to inform people of the most vile, grotesque, nigh unwatchable horror films I could find. My goal was to bring the movies that I loved to the attention of an audience who otherwise may not know they exist. Upon the list of films I used to describe my vision, was the Japanese Guinea Pig films; a collection of films so gory, so extreme and unflinching in their portrayal of violence and viscera, actor Charlie Sheen once called the FBI to report the films as actual snuff!
Today is a good day, my friends. Today, we review the third installment of the American counterpart to the original six films. Today, we discuss American Guinea Pig: The Song of Solomon, written and directed by Stephen Biro (review starts at 24:24). As the Catholic Church tries to save an innocent soul from the ravages of satanic possession, wave after wave of holy men are sent to confront the possessed. Featuring real rituals of exorcism, taken from De Exorcismus Et Supplicationibus Quibusdam (the Vatican’s book on exorcisms), and 100% practical effects, American Guinea Pig: The Song of Solomon just might be the most graphic exorcism film ever made.
