For those of the left hand path and others too., 23 February 2005
Author: this_antique_land from Canada

Death Scenes Volume 1 is in no way sensationalistic. This film does not glorify death but affirms life.

I highly recommend this to individuals with an open mind and an interest in truth and in this case an ultimate truth. Hosted by the Doktor himself, D S Vol.1 is a dark, humorous and engaging documentary detailing the foibles of some most unfortunate individuals.

Fans of the recent Penn and Teller Showtime series "Bullshit" may also find this series of interest.

Death Scenes should not be lumped in with series like "Banned in America" etc. Which are void of any kind of artistic merit and only exist to shock the viewer.
