Interesting and shocking.
9 October 2007 | by (Kokura, Japan) – See all my reviews

First of all I have been a fan of Psychic TV, Throbbing Gristle and Genesis P. Orridge for years. "First Transmission" was advertised in in the first edition of Thee Grey Book and it features TOPY spokesman, lengthy TOPY ritual involving bloody mutilation and enema, misdeeds of a San Diego medical detective, views of Gysin's Dreamachine, Jim Jones archive footage with various bodies lying on the ground of Jonestown, quasi-pornographic 'SXXX-80' made by Monte Cazazza, PTV interview on BBC2, ritual porn with Thee Temple and finally "(volume three, title unknown") which includes "TV Wipeout" (Doublevision Video, UK, 1983, includes "Terminus" video) and "Morgana-Flowers From The Underground" (Kartell Video, 1984, includes "Terminus"). I loved this shocking and grotesque spectacle of ritualistic mutilation, castration and sperm. Satanic rituals of Norwegian black metallers will never top the vicious audacity of Psychic TV's "First Transmission".

The closest thing to REAL snuff movie I have ever seen.
