Trivia

After years of investigation, there is still no proof that a real snuff movie exists. With this mind, opportunistic producer Alan Shackleton saw the chance to make a quick buck. He took a low budget slasher movie called "The Slaughter", changed its name to _Snuff_ and then added a 10 minute epilogue that showed the supposed director of "The Slaughter" completing his film and then attacking one of his assistants, killing and disemboweling her, all the while being surreptitiously filmed by his cameraman. This footage was then passed off as real even though the atrocious acting and sub-par special effects clearly showed that it was fake. Nevertheless, ever the entrepreneur, Shackleton secured a public showing in Times Square, tipped off the police about what was about to be shown and assembled a small group of "protesters". The stunt worked. _Snuff_ made over $300,000 in the space of three weeks. See more »

Alternate Versions

A limited edition, numbered Blue Underground Region 0 DVD was available. Playing with the 'cheapness' motif of the film the case is made to look like a brown paper bag. There are also no menus, no chapter stops and no special features. This version is uncut. See more »

Brilliant marketing !!
3 September 2001 | by MADMANMARZSee all my reviews

Credit must be given to the people behind Snuff. They took a very poorly made biker-drug war movie, tacked a phony real murder of one of the actress and the rest is history. Much has been written about the Finleys and the history of this movie. Enjoy the first 85 or so minutes and look at it for what it is a low rent action/gore film, than prepare yourself for the mock snuff murder with finger chopping and intestine ripping! Watch it for the historical value only. For quality look elsewhere!
