i was reading the wiki on the blair witch project, and this was referenced, and it sounds pretty nuts, curious if anyone here's seen it.

blair witch is easily the most terrified i've ever felt watching a movie. and watching hostel made me feel sick, so i imagine if the effects are realistic in this (it was filmed in 1980), it'd be pretty horrifying

yeah i just watched it a few days ago. it;s ok for the most part but, yeah, some of the scenes are pretty awful to watch. I'm usually ok with gory stuff, but a lot of it was unsettling.

I saw it many moons ago when I was around 10 or 11. My best friend's friend's father (who was slightly unhinged; he kept a smolt in his bathtub) had a copy of it, and I remember him telling us that it was a snuff film. I don't know how it'd look now, but back then it was fairly grisly to my tender youthful eyes. The one scene that sticks in my mind is where a guy gets tied down, with the top of his head popping through a contraption that looks like a table, and the cannibals chop off the top of his skull and eat his brains.

It's boring and way overrated/-hyped. They kill a live turtle, but that's about it.

Lets not forget impaling a dude up his poop chute, coming out through his mouth, the multiple rape scenes, and the ripping a dude and eating the insides of his chest.

And the turtle.

if you want an unsettling film without almost any kind of on-screen violence, watch the american shot for shot remake of Funny Games.
that movie is fucked up to the core

this movie is a good way to sort out a certain kind of shithead from the rest of the human race re:mentioning it, participating in a conversation about it

yeah it's mostly hype, pretty fucked up but incredibly cheesy. the soundtrack is the best part, i suggest you listen to it.

if you want hilarious ultraviolence go for peter jackson's Braindead or any movies by Troma.

It wasn't my best friend's father (he was a really nice guy), it was the father of my best friend's friend.
