When I first attempted to look up this video on IMDb back in early 2003, it was not even listed. There was not even a page for this thing. As of this writing, this torturous video, made the brother of the pedophile who made Traces of Death five years later, has a rock bottom, bottom of the barrel score of 1.0 on IMDb, with only six votes, all of them "1".
Absolutely worthless, this black hole of a video is high generation, black-and-white stock footage of car crashes, crime scenes, train wrecks, and a Marilyn Monroe lookalike rubbing her tits with an apple, in a stag reel from 1948. How is any of that "torture"? It seems like the nutjob who made this thing intended to rip off Faces Of Death, without having ever watched it, and lost interest in ripping it off, and then added unrelated stock footage, and his own stream-of-consciousness narration, which is more chilling than anything shown in this video.
The narrator, Larry Fox, is possibly the only person on Earth more of a loser than his brother Damon, except Larry did not add a lengthy and wholly fraudulent bio to his IMDb page. Larry doesn't really introduce or narrate the segments, so much as he just talks over them, and occasionally sings his way through them. "Tor - ture, tor - ture, ... Torture me!" he sings at one point, before, I hope, someone did in fact torture him. Seriously deranged stuff here, and not amusingly so. Breathing heavilly, Larry sounds like he is shivering while masturbating in a closet, and doesn't want his mommy, or his psychiatrist, to hear him in the next room. This fruitcake is probably in a mental hospital somewhere.
Cheesy synthesizer music is played throughout, along with a shot of a disembodied hand with a cardboard knife allegedly stuck through it, used to segue from one sequence to another, shown many times.
Released as part of an eight-hour video, containing other similar titles, in a generic plain white box, with its title printed on it by use of a label-maker!
Also released (somehow) in a plain black box, with different credits listed than what is displayed on-screen: Directed by Count Wolfgang Von Bloodworth, Narrated by Morticia Toom, Screenplay by Norman Tates, Produced by Federick Gore III. The box also listed the run time as 83 minutes, but it was about 70 minutes long.
A couple of those (obviously fake) names are similar to the credits for the similar Death Faces IV, also released straight-to-video in 1988. Were both videos put out by the same people? And why? For what purpose was something like this even made and released, the people responsible for it can't possibly have made any money from it?
Not even good for unintended laughs, this video is more torture than anything depicted in it.
