The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Snuff: A Documentary About Killing People (2008)

Snuff: a documentary about killing on camera.

Director: Paul Von Stoetzel

A documentary examining the snuff film and its history in our culture. Is it a thing of myths and legends? How does the snuff film correlate with serial killers? Does horror movies and the porn industry get a bad wrap because of the idea of snuff films? Was does it say about a person who wants to watch such a movie?
All these questions and more are talked about with experts in law enforcement, academia, and the movie industry.

My Take:
A fascinating look on a very disturbing subject. At the end I did a little bit of self evaluating. Especially on how it relates to war and internet.

And to make it clear I do not ever want to see a real snuff film. Fictionalized killing in movies are fine. Real life killings on tape are bad.

Rating: So Good (because it makes you think)
