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.

a gross out.
8 August 2002 | by (Norfolk, England) – See all my reviews

This is a bit of a hard one to review really. It's not a film as such and it's not really a documentary. It simply tries to gross out the viewer with scenes of real death, accidents, autopsies, operations and pictures. I had wanted to see this film for sometime after hearing it is the most extreme of all the mondo films. It didn't really shock me at all although I think this has more to do with my hard stomach than the film not being shocking. I found the film very interesting at times. Mainly the car accidents. But I really don't agree with the way the makers of this are making money from others misery. I have also read many reviews with people say they find Traces of Death funny. That I really don't like to hear. There is nothing funny about people being killed and seriously hurt. The film is very poorly edited together and terribly narrated. Overall I would say that although at times interesting it's just a gross out so if that appeals to you then watch it, if it doesn't then don't.

5/10
