Traces of Death 1 (1993)

Option 1Option 2

Avg Rating: 3.9 / 5. Voted: 58

No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Damon Fox
Starring:
Country: United States
Language: English
Runtime: 01:18:42
Genres: Gore-Gruesome-Splatter, Violence Against-Animals, Documentary

Plot – Spoilers:
The Traces of Death series from the ’90s was an attempt to outdo Faces of Death that had included staged scenes.

But the first one in the series lacked its famous predecessor’s budget and this shows up in the lower production and crappy music. What’s better here though is the authenticity – barring the lion-mauling scene.

Traces of Death 1 includes accidents, autopsies, surgeries including gender-reassignment, embalming and some notorious incidents like the press-conference suicide of Robert Budd Dwyer.

I’m speechless. Tbh, the music is more unbearable than everything else. I would say, the embalming process is the most brutal, I could only imagine the extreme pain if she were still alive when the guy was making her scary-looking, pain-stricken corpse presentable for the funeral. A 5/5 rating for all the genuine footage. Looking forward to watching the sequels. Thank you for this site.

The only one that really got me was the last one. Seeing the daughter and infant looking on in horror as their father is devoured by lions…especially the distress and horror in the infant’s eyes.

That last scene is taken from an old Italian mondo movie called “Savage man, Savage beast” (Ultime grida dalla savanna) and lots of sites online point out thats likely faked (so many other scenes from Italian mondo-cinema)

Thanks for the upload! I’ve always been curious about Traces of Death after seeing Faces. I know that this movie/series had a lower budget and that explains why the music and voice-over are so low quality, but I wish there was more explanation in some parts. Like, what am I looking at here? For example, the bit with the pigs being tortured with fire- was that part of an experiment to study 3rd and 4th degree burns? Maybe someone who knows a lot of lore on this can help me out. It’s still fascinating to me to see real footage… Read more »

Rosselhoznadzor specialists for the Voronezh and Volgograd region believe that burning pigs alive is a preventive measure to stop the spread of African Swine Fever (ASF), a common practice in Russia.

There was a 1-5 DVD set that got released but I’m not sure if anyone ripped it yet. It would be 10x better quality than this VHS rip.

I want to thank you guys for uploading this one at my request. I feel so…. special! Yes, it most certainly lacks in the budget department but not in the area of authenticity. When Faces of Death came out in the late 70s, there was a push on to grab a hold of this market, and it was easy enough to do. Just provide REAL content. And thus the Traces of Death and the Faces of Gore series were born. I’m sure there are a few others in there that I’m unaware of. MDPOPE also took the liberty of borrowing/using… Read more »

This is great! But there’s too much boring autopsy stuff that takes up a lot of time.

Finally! Ever since I completed the original Faces of Death series, I’ve been hunting for these, solely because of their authenticity. This has scenes that made me, a hardened gorehound, flinch. And this is coming from someone who has seen A Serbian Film. This shit is HARDCORE. And I don’t regret seeing it for a second (barring the scenes of animal torture). That said…if you can’t handle VERY graphic, and VERY real violence…turn back now. You are not ready for this.

Also, the soundtrack fucking slaps.

Most of this was just medical footage. I guess gore was harder to acquire back then but compared to what we have today, I give this a solid 6/10

the voiceover was fucked up. what the fuck were they thinking speaking like this behind victims? apart from this, most videos are medical and informative rather than shocking. when you see cartels beheading videos this just doesnt do it lmao

I actually like the music. It somehow makes the footage more creepy and disturbing.
