Plot – Spoilers:
This is the Maggot Cut of August Underground’s Mordum. Co-director Michael Todd Schneider (Maggot) was initially entrusted with editing the film, but Fred Vogel wasn’t satisfied with the result and shot additional footage before re-editing it differently.

The Maggot Cut might seem to be 20 mins longer but is actually just a minute longer. The additional minutes are trailers of Schneider’s other films. But existing scenes get extended here – sometimes to feature more of Maggot, which is kind of a good thing, and other times, for more of a backstory. The incestuous relationship between Maggot and his sister Crusty is also explored in more depth, as they bond over piss, shit and splatter. And what’s blatantly clear is the happy tranquility in their world when it’s missing Peter.

Other than that, it’s pretty much the same film with the chronologies of sequences varying. But since Maggot is usually in the middle of the more extreme moments, some would say this is more vile.

    Well, Maggot cut is pretty life changing for me. At least in the sense of how I see August Underground. The first is definitely a wild ride of serial killer home movies. The second I always thought was a bit weird. This is the missing piece that helps it make sense. I like the added bits from Vogel’s cut and wish there was an ultimate edition that had these scenes along with Vogel’s. Seeing Peter in the original, then having the home movies stripped away from him by his gf and her brother, to what happens in Penance? That makes for a well rounded story and trilogy. It was there in the original as Vogel had it, but this Maggot cut makes it even more prevalent. Wish we could get that ultimate edition…

    A true work of art. A love story that will surpass the ages. This film shows you sometimes have to kill something to show it your love. You don’t see love stories like this anymore.

    This movie is hard to watch. It’s not the rape and murder. It’s the whole time you’re looking at an extreme close up of a guy’s beard. It’s ment to be a movie right? SHOW ME SOMETHING.

        Apparently we are the only ones who don’t like shaky close ups of a nose while a meth head laughs loudly.

    Even as a fan of extreme horror, I always thought the whole trilogy was just bad and overrated.

      I too am an extreme horror fan, but not a fan of vomit and child killing and other gross out shit that is in this trilogy. No plot or story, just mindless garbage that belongs in a rubbish bin. Others might get off on it but its not my cup of tea.
