When A Serbian Film came out last year it was the topic of everyone's conversation. Conversations contained such wonderful quotes as these: "Did you See it?" "Man, that baby looked fake." "Whoever makes a film like this should be put to death." In short, A Serbian Film had become an overnight sensation. This is not the kind of sensation that can be equated to films that generate Oscar buzz however. This is the sort of overnight sensation that can be equated with something like Cannibal Holocaust — a more notorious sensation that thrives on the importance of "must see for yourself" content. Finally, with this latest DVD release by Invincible Pictures we can now all see it for ourselves. Or can we?
After the film was released it ran the gauntlet of movie censors everywhere. »

The Whistleblower‘s plot synopsis: Inspired by actual events, Kathryn Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) “is an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she uncovers a dangerous reality of corruption, cover-up and intrigue amid a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic doubletalk.”
We previously posted The Whistleblower Promo Trailer. This movie trailer is far better for The Whistleblower than the promo trailer was but the promo trailer went into far better detail as to what was actual going on (the criminal activity) than this movie trailer does. This trailer is cleaner and cut in a more theatrical way and the viewer gets to see more of the key players involved, »
Review by Mike Pickle, MoreHorror.com
This week's request is a controversial film to say the least. So controversial, in fact, that MoreHorror recently reported that a festival director in Spain was brought up on criminal charges just for showing it. This gory (and just plain wrong) Serbian import has already been reviewed by fellow MoreHorror reviewer Jason Lees, but I felt I should still honor the request. Also, since this is already having a tremendous impact on the Horror genre before even being released in the states, we at MoreHorror thought it might be interesting to see how the movie affected both of us differently. Here's my take on it.
There has been a good amount of buzz surrounding "A Serbian Film" in the realm of Horror. Some of which is from film critics who view the film at festivals and urge their readers not to watch it. As »
Opens: April 15th 2011
Summary: Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with family and friends, but it also brings about the return of Ghostface which puts the whole town in danger.
Analysis: Back in late 1996 when I first began covering film news, "Scream" was released and became more than just a sleeper hit. After years of genre movies being relegated to direct-to-video status, this comedic slasher spawned the biggest surge in the horror film genre since "Halloween" almost two decades before. Its post-modern stylings and witty self-aware dialogue went on to be a big influence on films and television in general.
Yet the "Scream" series itself never could quite capture that glory again. By the time the »

An aging porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film in the 2010 opus of depravity A Serbian Film starring Srdjan Todorovic, Sergej Trifunovic, and Jelena Gavrilovic...
I need to clarify that the version of this film I saw was not the highly censored UK release, which is in fact the most censored film to be released in the UK with an astonishing four minutes and eleven seconds removed, that amount of time in this film is an eternity. I was blessed enough to see the dirty, grimy, stomach churning real deal uncut version of A Serbian Film.
