Did what 'Faces of Death' didn't: bore.
30 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Low-grade, random newsreel footage seemingly recorded from local television stations on a VHS, with no progression from one segment to the next. Listless narration added in after the fact basically just tells us what we're watching.

Opens with planes colliding at an airshow- meant to shock both of the viewers by abruptly starting the mayhem, but just makes it seem like we've missed an earlier intro scene setting this one up.

I thought I saw the same guy being shot in the street twice. I know they show the high generation surveillance video of the Dallas convenience store robbery at least twice.

Rotting corpses, and a lot of them.

Sioux City, Iowa plane crash from 19 July was shown in one of the Faces of Death flicks.

Really very dire stuff here; I found it boring even when I was a horror movie-obsessed teenager, and I still do.

The opening credits call this 'Inhumanities II Modern Atrocities', while the closing credits call it 'Inhumanities 2', with the Arabic number 2, and no subtitle at all. It blows, regardless of what it is called. The closing credits also warn us of Inhumanities 3, which, as far as I can tell, never materialised. Did the makers of these things run out of beer and blank video tape?

Faces of Death might have been largely fake, but it was more amusing than this, and had more structure and progression and better narrative than this does. It had more shock value, too. This is just relentless and depressing, as lifeless as the dead bodies present in it.
