Storyline

An explicit thriller detailing the feasibility of producing and distributing snuff films, which are still only considered to be an urban legend. Driven mad by his failure to sell a profitable film to the porn industry, a director decides to create authentic snuff films with the assistance of two teenage runaways and a perverted cameraman. When the films bring in a profit through an amateur internet production company, they begin to see the film industry for what it really is: a world of backstabbing and double crosses. The group of twisted filmmakers then extract their own form of graphic revenge on the very people who made them successful. Written by anonymous

pretty good low budget thriller
7 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

in the first scene the quality of film comes into question as we see some grainy camcorder footage, but do to the effective use of the music and acting quickly makes us forget about the quality.the movie has a very well written script making the characters more believable and can relate to. the acting is a mixture with some actors being very good and others amateur or alright. the music is used very effectively and fits with the scenes in a morbid cynical way, this also creates the mood for the movie giving the user a relaxed but at the same time disturbed feeling as you find yourself listening to some classical love ballads while a person is killed in a graphic manner.

the movies is on the longer side and can be a little boring at bits in the first half (i think it was smart they edited out that hour of footage)but it picks up in the second half.
