The film was made in 1972 and was initially unreleased until 1977 because one of its actresses sued over the use of hardcore loops Watkins shot of her. Watkins did not even know the film ever made its way to the big screen until late 1979, when someone on the street recognized him as "the guy from that movie that was throwing animal guts around".

Let me just say right off the bat this is one of my favorite films. There's just something about it that really holds my interest. From what I can tell this was originally some kind of student project film, hence the ultra low-budget, stupid dialogue (really it's stupid the characters sometimes don't even finish their sentences), shot-on-video title effects, short running time, small (and I mean SMALL) distribution, and the fact that all names associated with the picture are pseudonyms. It's a great creep out movie and definitely gets under your skin. It involves a man, fresh out of prison, who gathers up a group of friends who want to make films like no one's ever seen before. This of course would be snuff. They kidnap some money hungry producers and proceed to torture and kill them right in front of the camera. The roughest scene involved a woman getting her legs chopped off while one of the guy's keeps her alive with smelling salts. I know, pretty cruel to say the least. If you think you can handle it then by all means treat yourself to this winner.
