This week Chuck and I talk about all sorts of things from what we’ve been watching and what is coming soon. Chuck also mentions Morbid about 32 times. We do however have a few reviews this week. Up first is Blue Underground’s upcoming blu-ray release of Man, Pride and Vengeance (a.k.a. With Django Comes Death) starring Franco Nero, Tina Aumont & Klaus Kinski directed by Luigi Bazzone. Then we have a look at Wild Eye’s release of the documentary Snuff: A Documentary About Killing on Camera directed by Paul von Stoetzel. This is not one that we recommend for everyone!
New York, NY – Wild Eye Releasing has announced the April 21st DVD and VOD release of Snuff: A Documentary About Killing on Camera. Long out of print and sought after since its initial release, Paul von Stoetzel’s documentary seeks to uncover the “truth” about snuff films, and how serial killers and horror classics like Cannibal Holocaust, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre play into the pervasive cultural rumors about these taboo and near-mythical films.
Explore the disturbing urban legend of the “snuff” film, an alleged film where someone is purposely murdered on camera for profit. This compelling documentary features interviews with film professionals, FBI profilers and academics, who all help examine the myths and evidence of snuff films, and its relationship to cult horror movies, serial killers and pornography in our culture.
This week we have reviews for Synapse Films South Of Heaven directed by Jonathan Vara and the Australian revenge film The Horseman directed by Steven Kastrissios. We also have a special treat from Blue Underground, we have the blu-ray release of the controversial Snuff! It’s a shot show this week but next week shouldn’t disappoint.
