AKA: Faces of Gore 1
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.
