Directed by: Todd Tjersland
Country: USA; Effed Up American Movies
Genres: Documentary, Gore-Gruesome-Splatter, Self-Harm
Plot – Spoilers:
Divided into 3 segments – Crashes, Suicides and Murders – Faces of Gore gets in an early disclaimer that the gore is real unlike the claimed settings and situations. Which seems about right. For example, all the deaths are claimed to be from Japan but are most likely not.
This is proper gore featuring accidental brain spillages and suicide victims that include (alleged) self-electrocution. You might have seen a few scenes in TOD, but they’re here in more graphic detail. And while FOD, TOD or the Mondo series attempted to inject dark humor to make light of death, this one goes ballistic trying to ironically shock, while mocking death.
It’s amazing the contrast of what is censored compared to what is allowed. They should have called this winner, scrambled brains.
All of these footages are originally from Thailand, not Japan.
There are actually 3 of these in the series and a special collection titled ” The best of Faces Of Gore”. Still not as shocking as MDPOPE trilogy but its getting closer.
why does real look fake and fake look real?
I’m not sure Dr. Vincent Van Gore is a real doctor.
I am curious, how many of us who watch these are in the medical field? Or in a field like Zeds where you deal with death on a constant basis.
With my experiences, in the medical and social work sectors, I am the one who gets to know the people for a period of time before Lector or Zed deal with them. Maybe these have helped to numb that? I mean, I have been watching these damn things for nearly 30 years. (Yes, I am aging myself)
Why do they make this shit so cheesy…. the added sound effects are cringe.
That was obviously NOT in Japan. Boring as fuck and “dr. vincent van gore” is way too clingy. That’s what’s ew about this movie. 1/5 for the suicides only.
I’m guessing the allegorical Dr. Van Gore doesn’t know how to pronounce Thailand… The very first clip clearly shows a vehicle with Thai Scribble on the windshield… oh, well.
I retract my prior comment. I’m at the halfway point now, and our Doctor seems tad unhinged. I’m sorry to have made such an inconsiderate remark earlier ¬_¬
The addition of the bad sound effects and music, as well as the cheesy commentary make this feel like the bad “B” horror movies of old, and I feel that is a good thing.
bullshit& unnecessary commentary but good videos.
That narrator is someone who I’d love to put a bullet in the face.
That is: after I put some bullets in his kneecaps, his balls, and his intestines…just to give him the opportunity to enjoy dying a little longer.
Volume 3 seems impossible to watch/download/buy online. If anyone has it, please share!!
That’ll buff right out.
“like this young woman and her unborn child, the intensity of the flame was so fierce it burned a hole right through her stomach revealing the char broiled fetus inside. She was an unwed mother and social misfit whom the world is probably better off without”
WOW that is arguably the most politically incorrect thing I ever heard, he even keeps railing on single mothers and how they deserve to die LOL the narration is more brutal than the gore.
Well it is fascinating in a bizarre kind of a way. But interesting to see the results of murder, suicides and accidents. I guess accidents can surprise you with your findings.
Its so disturbing to see so many first responders in these countries, not worried about exposing themselves to disease and other things by just not simply wearing gloves. They so freely pick up pieces of brains, poke their fingers into folks dead bodies .. i would be double gloved and covered as much as possible..
Am I the only one laughing because of the sound effects and the narrator?
