A small, seemingly innocuous plastic reel of film leads surveillance specialist Tom Welles down an increasingly dark and frightening path. With the help of the streetwise Max, Welles relentlessly follows a bizarre trail of evidence to determine the fate of a complete stranger. As his work turns into obsession, he drifts farther and farther away from his wife, family and simple life as a small-town private eye. Written by
During the fight between Welles and Machine, towards the end of the film, they fall through the window into the cemetery. The way Machine holds his knife changes between the shot where he slips off the roof, and the next shot where he heavily lands on the ground. See more »

8MM was a very dark and powerful film featuring the seedy underground world of pornography and snuff movies. It was, to be frank, fantastic. Nic Cage, rapidly becoming one of my favourite actors, walks through with a disgusted air and even Joaquin Phoenix, who I've never been that impressed with, hit the nail as a porn shop manager
Deeply disturbing, yes. Highly compelling, yes. A good buy... you bet!
