great American snuff film - awesome
8 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, anyone out there who is a fan of exploitation cinema, don't listen to the other posters on here - the great American snuff film is a totally wonderful exploration of the mind of a sociopath.

sure, its low budget. sure, it doesn't have any of the graphic effects associated with films like hostel and the rash of mainstream so-called extreme torture movies. but the great American snuff film is artistic, intelligent and above all, downright disturbing.

I think detractors of this film have seen the title and the subject matter and have expected lots of graphic ecu torture and bucketfuls of blood pouring out of people's heads for their entertainment. but in reality, that really isn't how it works.

films like hostel have given people a distorted perception of what this sort of sickness is really like in reality, and, in reality, it is totally un-fantastical, and shouldn't just give the kind of shocks that can easily be washed away with another gulp of diet pepsi and another handful of popcorn. it is ugly, degrading and downright sickening. which is just what sean tretta's film is. To re-dramatize events like these to make them palatable to a mainstream audience to me is frankly insulting and exploitative almost to a point beyond the misdemeanors of the sickest sociopath who ever lived.

Oh and by the way, if you like Harmony Korine and Last House on the Left, Don't MISS THE GREAT American SNUFF FILM.
