Storyline

Faces of Death VI is a direct-to-video compilation of the highlights of the earlier films in the Faces of Death series. It features many of the same scenes shown in Faces of Death 1 and 4, as well as the earlier compilation Faces of Death V. It begins without any opening credits, before recycling (for the third time) the sequence from Faces of Death involving the killing of a monkey which is then prepared and served to patrons of a gourmet restaurant, also shown for the second time is the staged heart ripping scene by African natives and the "head in a box" scene, both taken from Faces of Death IV. John Alan Schwartz's cameo as the leader of the flesh eating cult, as well as "The encapsulation of Samuel Berkowitz", are also featured again, and the final credits are those from Faces of Death.

In the rarely seen, out-of-print mail order version from the 1990s, there are a few new scenes, along with scenes from the first film. The German version, titled Gesichter Des Todes 6 consists of completely different, stock footage. See more »

The two Faces Of Death 6?
2 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can attest to the fact that there are at least two completely different versions of this flick available: Faces Of Death VI, which was released by Gorgon Video in the United States 1996, which consists of nothing but footage from part one and part four, edited together differently. I did not see any running time counter, as the earlier reviewer stated, but I also did not see any new footage, either. Don't waste your time with the US video titled Faces Of Death 6, just go back and watch the first film again.

There is also at least one other, completely different, unrelated film, titled Gesichter des Totes 6. I think that film should have its own listing on IMDb, as it is a completely different film than FOD 6. Gesichter isn't as bad as could be expected from an in-name-only ripoff. That's not to say it is very good, but some of it is kind of interesting.

Bearing no resemblance to the earlier, "official" Faces Of Death VI, the low-rent National Geographic-like video file known as Gesichter des Totes 6 begins with black prisoners in Africa, and kids with deformities being prepped for leg braces and put into stocks. Death and disease and violence among tribes people in Africa. Animal cruelty and slaughter; all grotesque. Whippings, and amateur boxing matches held in fields. Swarms of bats, and locusts plaguing African villages. Some time-lapse photography of cloud formations and tornado footage is interesting, as the (stock) footage apparently switches from African to European, or at least American.

Truthfully, Gesichter des Totes 6 is not as abysmal as some other Faces Of Death ripoffs (like Traces of Death, and Faces of Torture) but nothing to get too excited about either. Unless, like myself, you just enjoy the thrill of hunting down supremely obscure titles like this one.

Apparently, Gesichter des Totes 6 was released only as a video file, later put on DVD in Germany by Madison Video in a limited edition of only 500 copies, and the technical credits listed on the box are: Produced by Gabbi Marrisho and Doro Vlado Hreljanovic, Directed by Doro Vlado Hreljanovic, Screenplay by Fred Warshofsky, and no copyright date given. Neither of the two earlier narrators (Francis B. Gröss, and Louis Flellis) returned for this one, as the version I watched had been dubbed into French; although originally it was in German. In fact, the original German narration can be heard underneath the French-dubbed track in the version I watched online. Both German and French narrators are uncredited.

Faces Of Death 6: 1/ 10

Gesichter des Totes 6: 3/ 10
