the most shocking I have seen so far
28 April 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Now that everybody knows how fake Faces Of Death (1978) was it was a big hunt to catch some other tapes concerning atrocities of the world, around the eighties a lot of those tapes popped up and where shocking back than all based on Faces Of Death but most of the so-called drama's were fake.

True Gore (1987) was up next and was the most shocking for it's days but it didn't invite you to watch it, there was a bit too much talking in it and the speech of Jim Jones was too long without seeing any footage.

Suddenly those tapes concerning real mayhem did pop up again in Japan under the label MAD known for extreme gore and bondage. The so-called Death Files. But there was also this tape, which I liked a lot because it was more of a documentary. It started with explaining how the first guillotine was build and what it means for society. Slowly we move further with picture and slowly towards real footage from the beginning of 1900. They are shocking but didn't feel nasty because they were shot in black and white without a sound. It moves forward to China and World War 2. Before you know it the footage becomes gruesome. Made in the nineties it focuses on the genocide from that era, Yugoslavia is the first time I was in shock, heads being smashed with hammers, it's not nice to see. Further we go to Rwanda where machetes hack into the flesh of the living. Some pictures I recognise from then and were already burned into my brains, not nice to see again but the shot in Arabia with the execution in close-up is surely not for the squeamish, I have seen a lot but this is the most gruesome footage I have ever seen. I won't go into detail but you just see the man living after being shot and he has to be shot again...We are now a few days further after watching and still that picture is coming up again.

Gory as hell, the most vicious I have seen so far.

Gore 5/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 0/5 Story 4/5 Comedy 0/5
