Storyline

This successor to "Faces of Death" collection is a collection of archive film and borrowed stock footage. In its opening you see the death of a woman named Maritza Martin, who was gunned down by her ex-husband on Spanish language television. We then witness British SAS troopers storming the Iranian Embassy in 1980, this is followed by a police chase of a criminal in a pick up truck and the deadly finale. It then goes to footage of animal experiments with a grizzly scene of a live pig being burned alive with a torch. Autopsy footage is then shown of an Asian individual. We are then shown a very graphic presentation on a male to female sex change operation. One interesting scene has a man who had his nasal cavity removed and replaced with a prosthetic, the footage is most interesting and worth the price of admission. The producers then suddenly return to the death theme with the well known footage of R Budd Dwyer and his on air suicide with a .357 Magnum, followed by a look at one of ... Written by Sujit R.

good piece of s***
29 March 2001 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

I prefer Faces of death, cause there's someone speaking to the audience telling every little detail about what you're watching, but this is definetly the goriest "mondo" bloody film that I've ever watched. There's two more parts and each one contain some boring footage (the one with the surgeries are terribly long, and without speaking) but it's worth seeing because of the other scenes, like explosions or real photos from the police. check it if you can stand it...
