Plot – Spoilers:
Simply put, 3 women are tortured by a masked man for a snuff movie. How they ended up in it is traced in short black & white flashbacks.
One of them is a pregnant woman whose boyfriend gets her drugs and having softened her up, offers her a ‘job.’ Another is a junkie and porn actress who’s broke and desperate to act in ‘anything’. The third is a journalist who decides to write a column on the darker side of internet pornography while investigating the question, “Does Snuff really exist.” To this end, she meets with an author widely regarded as an expert on the subject who espouses some pretty decent philosophies on the bestial nature of man and the effects of anonymity on our psyche.
Snuff 102 includes long drawn out sequences of women held in captivity. Though these include lengthy scenes without physical torture, it actually adds to the terror when the brutal tortures and murders are executed. These moments are quite intense and include a pregnant woman being kicked in the stomach and stabbed in the cunt, heads and teeth being battered with a hammer and chisel, an almost-dead woman raped and then pissed on. There are also archival scenes of actual tortures and murder which you might have already seen if you’re into this sort of stuff.
While the copy here isn’t the best, the picture quality has been kept deliberately bad to give it an underground, low end camera feel, which sort of works for the atmospheric feel of horror.
