    Faces of Snuff {2016}



    Director – Matt Molgaard

    A smorgasbord of different vignettes on snuff films, most of them filmed in a found-footage style, combine in this more-than-2-hour epic.





    REVIEW:

    The film opens with a guy talking about how he and his friends had found some snuff films in a box outside a video store, mixed in with other “video nasties.” They then decided to make their own, with low quality to make them look more real. That way, the audience would never know who was actually dying and who wasn’t. He closes with the quote that snuff films “really are the evolution of horror.” Interestingly enough, I agree.


    The film certainly feels like a documentary, a Faces of Death (the obvious inspiration and comparison) with “real” snuff films mixed with a 1950’s lecture on the prevalence of violence and sex in media. The violence is pretty brutal and realistic for the most part. It’s legitimately p**nographic at times, with hardcore sex in multiple scenes. And, there’s some actual, real violence taking place on screen: in one particular scene, the actress is clearly and forcefully slapped hard multiple times in the face. This is one of the first few scenes in the film, and it certainly makes it a tough watch.
