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.

The most sickest film I have ever seen
19 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Traces of death is the most disgusting film in the world. All the deaths in this movie are 100% real. This movie is not for anyone who can't handle blood and gore. The nature of this movie is really graphic. This is not one of those Horror films with actors pretending to get killed. No, this movie is beyond that. It's real video footage of people getting killed. Watch this movie at your own risk.

I give this film 5 out of 10 (because it grossed me out sooo much)
