Not that I mind or care too much (it's your column after all) but why was this one reviewed? I know you've done Classics before but it usually had context that explained it (like Ghostbusters when Lady Ghostbusters came out).

Just curious is all.

I like the totally pointless pictures there, because anything relevant...no.

Also wondering why this review was done. Anyone who knows anything about this film knows not to watch it.

I know people who have watched and enjoyed all the 'endurance' films and their opinion of the A Serbian Film is always the same "I wish I could forget ever watching it" which says all I need to know.

It wants to be so edgy and shocking it goes overboard, and managed to achieve the opposite effect for me.

I used to watch these kind of movies with buddies, so my brain bleach threshold starts at Takashi Miike flicks.

Of course I had to google the scenes to see just how bad this movie gets:

From Wikipedia: "Milo? meets with Vukmir, announcing that he is retiring and dropping out of the film, but Vukmir explains to a hesitant Milo? his artistic style of pornography, showing a film of a woman giving birth to a newborn baby, which is then immediately raped by Ra?a. The disgusted and horrified Milo? storms out and drives away as Vukmir boasts to him that this is "a new genre" and that he terms it as "newborn porn" "


Is this the ONE? Is this the one film that is so disgusting that I won't be able to view it?

I've watched nearly all of Miike's filmography. Would you say this film is more shocking?

Not really. /b/ levels of edginess at best.

Some of Miike's and Park Chan Wook's Vengeance Trillogy has plausable elements to make it more gut-wrenching in my opinion. A Serbian Film went past that.

Anytime people tell me that they're badass hardcore horror movie fans, I ask them if they've seen "Salo or 120 Days of Sodom", "Martyrs" or "A Serbian Film." Just to more accurately gauge their level of "stamina".

I haven't watched any of them end to end and I don't plan to (turned off Salo rather quickly). However, knowledge of their existence makes me better able to watch other, lesser disturbing media, like "regular" horror or a Game of Thrones.

Marter... why? For what purpose would you make yourself endure this movie?

Would you believe me if I said that's not even close to the worst of the film? Specifically, both of the ending scenes, depending on your stomach.

That actually sounds really really stupid.

Worst part of this movie for me is watching it get treated like some deep art film. It's not an art film.

I remember it had some nice camera work and lighting, I can still recall those after all this time. Effects were really hit and miss (IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW YOU ANGLE IT THOSE MEN CLEARLY HAVE DILDOS WHERE THERE DICKS SHOULD BE). Don't really remember the music, but as stated in the review, the lead and the villain were well acted.

I remember I got really bored with the film; it started to revel in it's own ludicrousness and shock that there wasn't anything really pushing me forward anymore. Gore and other shock value isn't engaging when I know you're just going to keep pushing extremes.
Don't fucking throw out plot just so we can have more genital mutilation. Also your twist ending could be seen a mile away considering you beat us over the head with foreshadowing.

Dammit, that's right, the movie in general made me angry.

It's a bit weird that someone decided now would be a neat time to post a review for this movie. I guess it's never too late to be horrified by this kind of stuff.

For those wondering if there's actually any possible intellectual meaning in this film, here's an interesting (and quite funny) analysis:

I'm kind of curious, but also don't want to be mentally scarred for the rest of my life, so could you describe the scene, but be really vague and sugarcoat all of the unpleasant words so as to make it more palatable.

like:
Blood = raspberry jelly
Rape = cuddles roughly
Penis = Mr. Winky
Genital mutilation = experimental surgery
etc.

I don't need to have a translation key or anything either.

Weeeelllllllll, I can't really sugarcoat it so I'll just spoiler it so you can have sole blame for your own scarring.
If I remember correctly, the second-to-final scene involves the main character's brother/friend/whoever being high as fuck with him and them both fucking two people under sheets. The reveal is that I believe the friend is fucking the wife of the main character or somesuch, and the MC is literally fucking his probably ten year old or younger son in the ass.

Then something something, trauma for the MC, his wife, and son, he kills all three of them by shooting through each other with a single shot while they're laying in bed(it was an agreed suicide). Then the main director who caused all of this comes in with two dudes and cameras, then tells one guy to start with the son while he unzips or somesuch. Roll credits.
Truly a film that pleases Slaanesh.

Boo. Would have been funnier sugarcoated.

Honestly, from all the talk I expected worse than that. I was expecting stuff like... well really horrible stuff that I don't even want to write down.

I've never watched the film, but I do know at least 1 person who has watched it and 2 more who claim to have watched it

but I think describing scenes in text like that don't quite properly represent the real horror of the scenes
mostly because you miss out on the actors, which if Marter is to be believed, would have made a 4chan style gross out scene actually horrifying to watch

and I'm sure the vfx for the brains blowing out would have been incredibly gory and likely resulted in more mutilation than would have really happened for the sake of the horror

Oh, I have no doubt it's extremely horrible to watch and would give me nightmares for a year, but with all of Marter's secrecy I was expecting like, stuff worse than I could even imagine. Like:
rough cuddling of big owwies after Mr. Winkie got a boo boo all in a big mess of lemon and chocolate pudding.

Or something like that.

Not exactly.

My imagination can actually make the scene far more horrible than it is in the actual movie.

For example, you can technically film a "raping a kid" scene while managing to NOT make it horrible.

Which is why I am curious about this film. I've read the synopsis. But I wonder if my mind was better at imagining that as horrifying than what the actual movie did.

I watch shocker movies on a regular basis, but so far I've never found a movie that was so horrible that I couldn't endure it till the end.

I'm getting more and more curious about this movie, even tho I generally like my gorefest shockparty movies to ALSO have a meaning and this movie doesn't seem to have any meaning besides "can you endure it?".
