"Snuff" is a notorious film that elicited public patronige upon its theatrical release by telling them they may see someone die on screen. But the film has value beyond its titillating back story. "Snuff" is actually three films in one. But I won't tell you where the dividing lines are. Just know that this is a very low budget, experimental horror movie that was completed over a number of years. Most of the techniques it uses to horrify, or at least disturb, the audience are unique to mass marketed movies. I'm actually amazed it made it to DVD. "Snuff" should be watched because it's different.
As for the disk itself: There is no title screen, no extras, no scene index. You just put the thing in and it plays. If you try to use scene index it will send you back to the beginning. I like this. The makers of this film didn't want the audience to be able to jump from scene to scene. Films are, contrary to popular belief, designed to play strait through without the audience being able to interrupt or reorganize them. This disk preserves "Snuff"'s integrity.
The print is as good as it'll ever be.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needed more July 30 2003
Format:DVD
"Snuff" is a film that "those in the know" regarding early seventies exploitation and horror should see at least once. Its main claim to fame was that it was nothing more than a cheap Manson cash-in that was found to be unreleasable. This prompted an enterprising producer to insert a graphically violent ending and then claiming that it displayed an actual murder. Of course, this was proven to be false but the publicity regarding this scene brought much noteriety to the film. The main problem with the DVD is the lack of any extras as it tries to replicate the original viewing experience. The package resembles a brown paper bag with only the title and tag-line displayed, there is no insert card and no information on what the film is about. There is no menu and the movie just starts and after the ending scene simply loops to start again. This is unfortunate as, if one film required a "special edition", this one is it. Why there was not a commentry track illustrating the various trials and tribulations the film went through is beyond me. Seriously, the film itself sucks but the history behind it is amazing. It is too bad that an opportunity to really make a bad film worthwhile with the addition of extras has been lost.

3.0 out of 5 stars Life is Cheap - but this DVD sure ain't.... July 29 2003
Format:DVD
SNUFF - The legendary 1977 grindhouse favorite! Remember that great marketing campaign? - "The movie they said no producer could make, no distributor would release, and no audience could stomach. This is the one and only original legendary atrocity shot by Monarch Films in South America and New York, where human life is cheap! The mystery and controversy surrounding this vicious and violent venture remains clouded to this day. Many of the actors and actresses who dedicated their lives to making this film were never seen or heard from again. SNUFF is the film that went too far - it contains scenes of sadism, bondage, bloodshed and mutilation too real to be simulated, too shocking to be ignored. Are the killings in this film real? You be the judge!" Hahhahahahahhaha!
This classic 42nd Street favorite is anything but real (at least in my opinion - you be "the judge"), but whatever you decide, there is no denying that it is an HILARIOUSLY campy, ridiculously-dubbed south-of-the-border exploitation flick! If you don't know it's history, the producers had bought a bad, sleazy 1971 Argentinian revenge flick called "The Slaughter", cut off the ending, added a terribly fake newly shot unrelated "snuff" sequence at the end instead, changed the title to "Snuff" and released it to unsuspecting crowds in 1977. I'm sure it caused a few riots at the time. Is there any snuff in it? No. Is it even about snuff? No. But who cares, it's all in the marketing, right?
This hilariously marketed "limited edition" disc from Blue Underground is as bare-bones as you can get. The keepcase is a replica of a crinkled paper bag. No mention of actors, cast, crew or Blue Underground. Just a UPC code and the limited edition # printed on the back.
