Want a reflection of the "VCR generation"?
3 December 2001 | by Moshing HoodsSee all my reviews

... well, this confused mish-mash of clips provides just that. This video was clearly thrown together by someone with no more equipment than a digital titler and two home VCRs.

Whilst most of the more famous Mondo/shockumentary films have some kind of context, this is totally abandoned in TRACES OF DEATH in favour of unrelenting, and unrelated, violence. All of the footage was stolen from other Mondos, which should immediately invalidate the narrator's ("Brain Damage", aka Damon Fox, presumably also the individual responsible for editing this mess together) hammed-up claims that TOD is "the world's FIRST all-real shockumentary!".

Some of the movies plundered here include SWEET AND SAVAGE, SHOCKING ASIA, DAYS OF FURY and FACES OF DEATH III. Whilst I wouldn't EVER go so far as to recommend a Mondo film, you'd be better off checking out those original movies rather than this one. The true "art" in Mondo film-making is building a context, and even an (often dubious!) social commentary around the footage in question, creating a (potentially) watchable and thought-provoking shock-fest. TRACES OF DEATH does none of this. It is truly a Mondo for the "Beavis And Butthead" generation. And if this doesn't scare you off, be warned that the entire film has a Relapse Records death/grind metal sound-track...
