Storyline

Join your fiendish host, Dr. Vincent van Gore, as he leads you into the forbidden world of the dead. Only the most disgusting and horrifying car crashes, suicides and murders are presented. Nothing is faked. There are no boring autopsies or grainy World War 2 footage; all new, exclusive never before seen footage of those freshly slain over the past ten years! Documented through actual crime scene investigations by police and emergency response teams from around the world. If you cannot handle smashed brains, bug-eyed corpses and char-broiled fetuses, do not watch this film! Written by Anonymous

It Isn't Japanese
21 January 2004 | by dasbubSee all my reviews

I know that the opening spiel said that they made up the stories and changed the names, but come on. Every story apparently takes place in Japan, and all the names are Japanese. Well, even a moron can tell that these are NOT from Japan.

The people don't look Japanese, the writing on the uniforms is definitely not Japanese, and the way that the police wrap up bodies in butcher paper and touch bits of internal organs with non-gloved hands suggests these clips originate in a third-world country.

I'm no expert on asian languages and alphabets, but I'll hazard an informed guess that these clips are from the area of Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia.

Putting all of that aside, the movie is pointless. Many people say it's a gorefest, but I just found it boring. Once you've seen a couple of car accidents and suicides, you've seen them all. Don't waste your time with this cheap ripoff of Faces of Death.
