    Thank you RL! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this, such a powerful and sobering doco.

  2. Ivan says:

    Rare mondo and shockumentary movies here:

  3. Blob Bloberson says:

    Great Doco seen it few times on VHS back in the day :D

    Thanks for the extras

  4. Pablo says:

    Saw this on home video in my early teens, too young for such graphic footage. If anyone has seen both versions, how does the Japanese version compare?

    This documentary has a solid reputation and is quite respected. True crime buffs will see it as a rehash of many well known crimes but watch it with it’s release date in mind. It still contains some rare material and a well-written narrative. Fans of true crime, mondo, the snuff film controversy and daring documentaries in general are advised to track down a copy of ‘Killing for Culture’, An Illustrated History of Death Film from Mondo to Snuff (1994). This is an utterly one of a kind indispensable guide and where I first read about this. It’s one in a series of filmbooks from Creation Books that are all must-reads. It’s listed on Amazon and Rarelust carries many of the films discussed. Thanks for the commentary!

    Saw this on rental VHS in the Golden Age of Home Video.

    Was very popular at the time.

    Thanks for the upload, nostalgia.

    One of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen. Thank you for including all the bonus material and commentary.
