06.13.05Netflix Banned in 46 countries! When i was a kid, like 13, 14 years old, this was the most hardcore ever. It was ALL REAL! I was astounded... then I saw Traces of Death and got pretty disgusted with some medical footage and got over the whole phenomenon.

Since hearing about the planned Faces of Death remake, I did a quick look on the internet and found that a documentary had been made discussing which scenes were real and which were fake. So i rented it and watched the movie again. Laughably bad. It's really clear that, aside from slaughterhouse and autopsy footage, it's ALL FAKE.

So... the documentary also sucked. it's all "in character" and filled with voice-altered anecdotes of the caliber of "that scene was fake but, while we were shooting it, I bumped into a dead body."

I now realize why it was banned in so many countries... they must have some sort of test for a minimum level of quality that this could never hope to pass.
