Two friends meet again to share their last days in an old house where everything happened a long time ago. They gather a group of people, which results in a disastrous turn of events, during which reveals the deepest human depths.
"First Transmission" is a British shockumentary from 1982, made by Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth.
As a warning, this film is NOT to be viewed to any viewer under 18. Also this film is not recommended to any squeamish viewer because of the explicit content mentioned below.
Some basics about the content, NO ending spoilers included: This almost 4-hour-long shockumentary film consists of several slow-pacing segments, which all together include sick and twisted stuff like: a Satanic ritual, castrations, footages of a Mexican boy getting some device in his left arm, clips from "Guyana: Crime of the century", the full short film "SXXX-80" and a "Psychoporn" sequence set to some weird music.
As far as I know, this film has not been released on DVD at once, it was only released on VHS, in four parts when the film was made in the UK. And therefore this film is to be looked at as a pretty rare shockumentary film made in UK. Honestly, it is not common for this country to make such direct-to-video movies like this. Even the United States could have made this as films like "Faces of Death" and "Traces of Death" were made in said country.
Also it is not common for a shockumentary films to last for as long as 4 hours; most other films in this genre usually last for between 60 to 90-minutes.
Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth, who made this film, was a fellowship founded by several groups in 1981, including music bands like Psychic TV, Coil and Current 93.
I have said this before, but again, this film is NOT to be viewed, neither to any squeamish people or any viewer under the age of 18. Hope you can endure this long-running shockumentary flick as I just did for just a hour ago, well if you are into this kind of disturbing stuff like this... ;-)
