SYNOPSIS: Two sisters confront their sexual attitudes and experiences while on a family holiday.

Film Review: Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame (1989) – CAT III

SYNOPSIS: By the time of Android of Notre Dame, the fifth installment in the Guinea Pig Series, any mondo factualization of the fictional has disappeared.
