Exclusive Images from American Guinea Pig: Bloodshock


Ready or not, there’s an American Guinea Pig series on the way from Unearthed Films, and we have a batch of exclusive photos to share from American Guinea Pig: Bloodshock, which is in its final days of fundraising on Indiegogo.

The purpose of the Indiegogo campaign isn’t to raise funds to make Bloodshock – it’s already finished.  Instead, they’re offering pre-sales for limited edition DVD’s, BD-r’s, perks, props, tees, and even sneakers. Here are the details:

We’re trying to pre-sell at least $30,000 to pay back the budget for Bloodshock and hopefully make the next film in the American Guinea Pig Series. DVD’s, etc., will be shipping in late March/early April of this year. Props that were used in the film are also being sold… we’re actually selling everything to try to move ahead with AGP faster than a normal release.

The 3-disc limited edition retail version will not hit the streets until September or October of this year. Due to a 6-month window for distribution of finalized DVD’s and Blu-rays for retail ordering, we figured it would be best for fans of the extreme series and ourselves to continue the series with limited edition, signed, and numbered alternate and gore covers for those who pre-buy the film straight from us, using Indiegogo to help with the shares on social media. Normally, a movie is made, sold for distribution, and after a year of selling, the budget is made back, and hopefully, the filmmaker can make the next film. We are doing the opposite and selling limited editions to get the ball rolling and not stagnate in creating ultra-gore films for the gorehounds out there.

We also have a “share” contest, where the top ten sharers of the Indiegogo pre-sale of Bloodshock will receive a special limited edition DVD, limited to 25 copies, that will only be given to the share winners and cast and crew.

In addition, anyone who buys or bought a limited edition DVD or Blu will be added to the special thank you section in the credits of AGP: Bloodshock. Anyone who buys or bought a special perk or prop will be added to a special section in the credits.

A limited edition “big box” VHS, limited to 50 copies made by Vultra Video, will be signed and numbered by the cast and crew.


Curious as to what else is in store for fans of the series?  Here is a list of all the American Guinea Pig films that are lined up so far.  (Note that all titles are tentative and subject to change.)

A man finds himself trapped and used for medical experiments in an abandoned mental facility. He doesn’t understand why or how he got there, but the surgical tortures allow him to experience a new level of pain, sadness, and reality he has never felt before. As the levels of maniacal mutilation unfold, he finds himself down the rabbit hole. Grasping onto anything, the tormented finds a way out. Clutching onto what every human being is desperate for, little does he understand… his ending is all of our endings.
