By now, Severed Cinema readers should be very aware of the American Guinea Pig series if you frequent the website, or any other underground annals of the interwebs. Masterminded by Unearthed Films’ Stephen Biro, the series began with the faux-snuff gorefest, American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore directed by the man himself (review here). The second installment, American Guinea Pig: Bloodshock (review here), a black and white slow-burner from Hell has been recently unleashed, helmed this time by make-up effects virtuoso Marcus Koch (who also does the ghastly FX work). Now this brings us to the third installment, which has just finished principal photography. American Guinea Pig: Song of Solomon sees Biro revisit the director’s throne once again -- this time aiming to deliver an exorcism film to end all exorcism films!

The film stars Jim VanBebber (The Manson Family, Gator Green) and Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare) with Make-up effects from Marcus Koch as well as Toetag’s Jerami Cruise! And folks, let me tell you, from the unpublished photos from the set I have been privy to see, this demonic beast isn’t fucking around! Unfortunately, I cannot as of now show you any of the gruesome delights that these eyes have pleasantly fawned over. However, I can give you my impressions on an exclusive look at a scene I was lucky enough to view, and re-view, and view again and again and…

The plot for American Guinea Pig: Song of Solomon goes as follows: Mary witnesses the brutal suicide of her Father. His death unleashes the savage forces of demonic possession in his daughter. The End of Days is upon the world, famine, drought, looting and chaos is ripping the world apart and the Catholic Church is trying to save an innocent soul from the ravages of satanic possession. Wave after wave of holy men are sent to confront the possessed but what is the Holy Church actually doing? The City on Seven Hills is working on the Second Coming of Christ but before He comes back… the Antichrist must rule for seven years. The Song of Solomon’s true nature is to unleash an evil the world has been waiting for since the beginning of time.

The aforementioned scene I was privy to see was of the “brutal suicide” of the father. The scene begins from inside a bedroom. There, a man paces franticly around a room, knife in hand, sweaty, going out of his mind. He is ranting towards a bed where his daughter resides off-screen. The frantic man, is played by non-other-than Mr. Biro himself. (Biro told me he didn’t want to act at all but this was a last resort as he couldn’t find anyone to play the role.) The father proceeds to rebuke his daughter, as she has been telling people her father molested her and that he abuses his wife. “I’ve never hit your mom. We’ve never fought!” claims the father. “It’s affecting my job and my life.” he exacerbates. Continuing his mental meltdown, the knife eagerly gripped, he pleads, “Is this the option that I have? I can’t take this anymore! I can’t take it…” What follows is his gruesome suicide. I will save you from spoilers at this point, but let me tell you, what he does in this suicide I have never seen in any movie, self-inflicted before. You’re in for a treat, is all I will say.


As for Biro’s performance, generally I cringe when I see a director acting in their own movies. Usually they just can’t pull it off. But in this scene Biro does an unbelievable job. He’s all worked up and sweaty, like he’s actually having a nervous breakdown. It isn’t award winning, mind you, but he does effectively execute a credible situation and the tone is spot on. Biro did tell me he had to get himself really worked up before shooting the scene, and it really shows.

So there you have it. A little tidbit of info to keep you salivating for more. Here are a couple screenshots as well. Be sure to check back for more updates on American Guinea Pig: Song of Solomon, as we receive them.
