Total waste of time. Don't watch or rent it. Worst., 15 September 2005
Author: caracalla1 from United States
This movie is a total waste of time. I can't in good conscience recommend this movie to people I even hate. It starts out as a documentary showing several disasters but not displaying anything graphic. This movie tries in vain to be something intelligent. The movie attempts to fool the viewer,that he or she is watching something akin to the Faces of Death movie series. No one dies, no one cries(but me for watching this movie)and it doesn't even make sense. Nothing in the movie relates to the title. There is a scene where Marilyn Monroe is playing with an apple(10 min worth). How does that relate to the title? There is some weird music(composed of about 5 notes that are continuously playing through the whole movie) that continues to play for 15 minutes after the ending credits are played. Worst movie of all time in my viewing movie experience.

The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum, 16 April 2009

*** This review may contain spoilers ***
I saw Faces of Torture about a dozen years ago. It was like a history
channel show produced by paranoid schizophrenics.
It consists mainly of grainy black and white stock footage of old disasters and other decrepit stuff with rambling commentary by some deranged hick!
Along the way we're treated to the phony Marilyn Monroe stag loop of a lookalike rubbing and bouncing apples against her breasts.
Then "James Dean was tortured..." the hick says casually. "His face was tortured." Then we see a flash image of a hand with a nail through it and shock music followed by Dean making his infamous public service announcement on driving safely.
The hand is repeated several times throughout the movie.
Sometime later we get to hear the hick sing a song, "Sparkey Drives The Tracter Of Torture". I Sh*t you not!
At the end his ranting becomes more intense as he asks the audience, "Are you going to drink the Kool Aid?" and something to the effect of "Are you going to let the people in this footage die in vain?" My answer: yes and yes.
I'm giving it an extra star for sheer audacity.
