This movie is really hard to find, or am I looking in the wrong places?,
I know what type of movie this is which is why I am struggling to track it down,
Just wondering if someone on here might have an idea where I can get it?

Hi,

Firstly, it's not legally available any more. So, that's going to be your first hurdle. :( Oh, and there was never a Blu-Ray release, as Blu-Ray didn't really exist at the time of the film's release. It was only released on DVD.

Secondly, the reason it's not legally available, is because no US DVD production firm wanted to handle this rather depraved film, and so all of the usual companies refused to duplicate it or have it listed with any of their other "extreme" titles. In most other countries around the globe, (Europe, Australia, Russia, the Far East), it was banned, or the local censorship authorities said "Don't even bother attempting to submit this film to get it classified, as we'll reject it outright!" :( (If you've seen it, then you can probably understand why.)

The film was given a limited, short-time release via the director's own website. Sadly, however, he received death threats, and not too long after the film was available, he was forced to stop selling it. On top of this, the website was pulled, by the website hosts, as they felt the film, the topic, and the content of it was "unsavoury".

The additional problem, on top of all of this, is that very good quality pirated copies started doing the rounds. It's very difficult to tell an authentic original version (as sold by the director from the website) with that of the pirated editions. Unfortunately, the only real way of telling, is, if you bought it from anywhere else, other than the director's website, (or via Movietyme, who had a special deal with the director to sell it before they too were forced to stop selling it), then there's a large chance it's pirated. :( Original ones, should have a signature of the director on the sleeve, authenticating it. The sleeve is a colour print-out as done on a PC, and the disk is a blank, unlabelled CD-R, with nothing else written on it, as they were being sold by the director, and he was doing all the duplication himself, from his home in Spain.

Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to get an original copy now, but pirated versions do still appear for stupid amounts of cash on eBay and the like! Sadly, your chances of ever getting an authentic original, are practially nill.

Sorry to be the bearer of such bad news. I guess, I am very lucky in that I do own an original edition of it. And yes, the film is nastier than its reputation! :eek: Hence why it's banned and considered an "obscene article" in most parts of the world!

But if it's simulated and not real, then surely it's fair game?

Is anyone willing to sell me their copy of it whoever has it on this forum?

Or even, (I do stress, only as a last resort) I know you aren't supposed to ask for pirated copies, but as this seems to be the only other alternative, and through the fault of movie companies not taking it on, could someone burn me a copy?,

If asking this causes problems then let me know and I will edit this post straight away

Yes it will ;)

Good luck in finding it, however you go about it. As I say, if it's not real then it should be up to the viewer whether they want to watch it or not.

Personally, I don't. I'm done with the "torture porn" sub-genre.

Hi Quarry,

But if it's simulated and not real, then surely it's fair game?

The problem was that the simulation is almost unbearably realistic - to the point, that it is very, very difficult to tell if it has been simulated or not. :eek: I'm 99.9% certain it is faked, but by god, it's realistic! :(

There's no credits or cast list on the film or the case. The extras include footage of necrophilia - again, some of which look extremely authentic, but I hope aren't.

Trust me, if you aren't well-prepared, anyone seeing this film, could easily be fooled into thinking it's genuine! :eek: And therein lies the very problem why this film has been pretty much disabled from being distributed. Companies just don't want to take the risks of having this title on their catalogues, if there's the tiniest possibility of genuine material being included. (Namely the "extras", showing photos of necrophilia!) :eek:
