A misunderstood masterpiece of modern horror
13 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Fred Vogel's August Underground is a misunderstood, underrated success in horror film-making that is unheard of in the mainstream. I hated it before I had ever even saw it, but the hype is well-deserved. It's the most grueling film I've ever sat through, and I had to take several breaks. There are times that you think you're watching a real "snuff" film, and the result is shocking and sickening.

It deserves praise for doing what I didn't expect - it portrays the serial killers as immature, ugly, obnoxious, despicable scum. This is the way they (and murder) should be portrayed, not the Hollywood route of glamorization (Hannibal Lecter, Patrick Bateman, Norman Bates, Travis Bickle, etc).
