AKA:
Year: 2001
Directed by: Fred Vogel
Starring: Fred Vogel (Main Killer), Allen Peters (Cameraman)
Country: USA
Language: English
Runtime: 01:10:22
Genres: Gore-Gruesome-Splatter, Rape/Sexual Violence against Women, Rape/Sexual Violence against Men, Scat, Killers, Snuff, Torture, Captivity/Kidnapping

Plot – Spoilers:
August Underground came out a couple years after the Blair Witch Project but smashed the night-vision out of that one as far as American found-footage/home-video films was concerned. There is something so real about the way it’s been shot – anyone who’s ever recorded rubbish with their friends will instantly identify with the conversations the two characters have, the way the edits happen and more. Director Fred Vogel is the guy we see throughout, while co-writer Allen Peters plays the cameraman. The plot is nothing much – two friends travel around murdering and torturing women and men in the sickest ways possible.

Within the first minute of the movie, Fred turns to us and says, “You’re gonna love this.” Truer words haven’t since been spoken in effed-up cinema as we are introduced to the first victim – a naked tied woman with one of her nipples shaved off. The cameraman giggling away at Fred’s antics is like the audience goading him into deeper depravity.

It’s not like the two have their senses blinded to the stench of the rotting bodies, pus, shit and puke. On at least a couple of occasions, the vileness is so foul and overpowering, they uncontrollably vomit, adding to the stink that we can almost smell off our screens. So it’s more like a couple of guys on an insane bender determined to not quit any time soon. There are also some homely shots of dogs and farm-life, just to give us a breather here and there.

Favourite Scenes – Massive Spoilers:
Every torture scene with its long unedited takes is unblinkable, but the scene of the tattoo artist getting revived to the sight of his dead brother with a voiceover by the cameraman is cruel, yet hilarious. As if pleased with himself, Allen says, “I should do stand-up.”

This is way better than the other two movies.
It actually has a good story, and the scenes of rape and torture are well made. I would recommend this film! (but the last scene with the two prostitutes is way longer than it should be.)
I watched “Mordum” and “Underground’s Penance” too, but to be honest I didn’t like them at all. They are completely boring and definitely lose the point of the main movie. By the way, Mordum is not as disgusting neither disturbing as many people claim to be; while Underground’s Penance is the most boring and tedious movie of the saga.

August Underground: 9/10
August Underground Mordum: 7/10
August Underground’s Penance: 5/10

I always come back here to watch the scenes with Laura, to literally see the most fucked up thing I’ve ever seen. I search Google for it, but they hide it. Gotta come here for it. I need to watch Laura get killed about once a week to get right.

Fucking garbage and complete waste of time! When Lard ass hits’the girl over the head with the baseball bat in the convenience store and drops it, it didn’t even make a sound, he might have well just hit her upside the head with a styrofoam swimming pool log that kids play with in the pool, this is how horrible this was, and what’s worse, I don’t get how retarded you’d have to be to consider this as entertaining, getting off on hurting innocent people when there are worse people clearly more deserving of being tortured and killed but not just random people, this was so stupid it even insults my intelligence! And to the moron who commented here how he watches the same rape scene over and over, I would love to rip his balls out through his asshole, then gut this idiot like a turkey, throw him into the dark lake close to my house where the water would fill his carcass through the cavity and sink to the bottom, never to seen ever again because we have enough pathethtically stupid people here roaming te earth when better people than he, can’t even get ahead in this world!

This may be super long so I apologize! Anywho me and my friend use this website to watch movies and get high (weird I know) well we watched this one night and our thoughts were kinda too much for such a simple movie. It was kinda cool how it was like a random fucked up vhs tape you found at a thrift store. Just random moments of seeing trains or just randomness then BOOM gore but imma say the last death scene was pretty unexpected

I love the first August Underground, it is violent and nasty and raw, you feel 0 sympathy for the protagonists and they are completely uncool, which is the point I think. The tattoo scene gets me, because it is the only scene where they act normal, and normal they do act. This is Vogel’s best work imo.

The resolution is around 320×240 which is just too small and when you put it in full screen mode it loses quality and becomes grainy. I gave it a 1 star for that.

or it’s because it’s low quality. I mean it’s not even subjective it’s literally low quality video. Low quality film overall as well. Gore sites these days have videos in 1080p shot with slow motion cameras you can see heads explode from shotguns.

Maybe I’ve become desensitized from seeing real murders on liveleak or documentingreality but this movie just didn’t get a reaction out of me. Fred Vogel’s acting is very convincing but the camera man’s acting lacks the authenticity found-footage movies need to work. He never stops fake laughing through the entire movie. It’s so fucking aggravating because his awful acting prevents you from being able to imagine this being real which is the whole point of the found-footage genre. BUT, it certainly wasn’t a bad movie. It was an interesting watch.
I’m super grateful to the admins of EUF for all the movies. You guys rock
