August Underground

edited November 1999 in Movie Catalog
This is the first in a series of films that comes closer to the idea of "snuff" than any film that Ive never experienced. Set in a series of everyday locations, director, Fred Vogel, brings the element of <i>realistic</i> terror closer to home.

Although this particular film is a bit drawn out, the amount of unadulterated, gut wrenching scenes of death portrayed so nonchalantly, more than makes up for it...

Its as if two sociopaths that appear to be your average frat boys decide to go on a drunken road trip, and just happen capture their mass murdering spree on film. Blood fetish, necrophilia, lack of compassion for human life, and the music of what I'm assuming to be local metal bands...its all in the mix.

  • The scene where the guy cuts his penis off made me say an "Oh my god..." but beyond that, I didn't think anything was... really... I dunno, bad. Like, I expected something grotesque and horrific. Things that would make me vomit in disgust as I've heard of people doing. Honestly, I felt more squeamish watching scenes from Hostel.

  • Hostel is another flick that is most definitely worth a mention. I have always been fond of Eli Roth, but this film, in particular, took his abilities and vision to the next level. Admittedly, it wasn't quite as good as I had expected, but the concept is still quite disturbing. I have to admit that during the first 30 minutes, I began to wonder if this film was merely porn hidden within the horror genre...
