Filmmaker Srdjan Spasojevic pushes the boundaries of what can (or should) be shown onscreen in this violent and malignly erotic thriller. Milos (Srdjan Todorovic) was once a star in pornographic movies, well known for his ability to perform longer than any of his peers, but he gave up his career and now lives a quiet life with his wife and young son. Milos has been having serious money problems and wants to better provide for his family, so when an old friend tells him about a wealthy filmmaker who'd like to work with him, he's willing to listen. Vukmir (Sergej Trifunovic) is a mysterious man who offers to pay Milos a huge sum to appear in his next film -- enough to support his family for life. Milos agrees, even though Vukmir won't tell him what the movie is about. Not long after Milos arrives on set, he realizes this will not be an ordinary porn film, and as he's dosed with drugs and led from one extreme of sex, violence, and human debasement to another, Milos becomes aware that his physical and emotional survival is being put to the ultimate test. Srpski Film (aka A Serbian Film) generated no small amount of controversy following its first American screenings at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival.~Mark Deming

Hands down the most disturbing movie I have ever seen. Definitely NOT for the queasy! I know some hard core horror fans that were unable to watch the movie in its entirety. Every time you think you have seen the most horrific scene they could do, they top themselves. It’s such a graphic movie that it was stated that most everyone associated making this movie was unable to find work afterwards due to the association of it. And once you see a scene, you won’t be able to unsee it and it definitely stays with you.
So alot to unpack in this film. Firstly if you are easily triggered and don't know how to separate real from fake, don't watch this film. I think without two particular scenes this could have epic. Definitely puts Hostel to shame. After reading the statement of intent by the director to show corruption and the dysfunction of the system/people in Serbia I watched film in a different light. The three star rating is because of the two scenes that really didn't need to be in there.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This Film Should Not Exist
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
This film should not exist. I’ve watched this film 5 times now and every time I’m still amazed this movie even exist. It is hands down the most disturbing and messed up film I’ve ever seen to date. I do not recommend anyone watch this unless you truly want to scar yourself for life. It is visually stunning and does have an amazing soundtrack, but the context of the film and the shock value of this film are definitely over the top.
Truly horrific movie, not for those faint of heart! This movie has Newborn abuse in it, no joke, prepare to be truly mortified. Most of you, 90% of you can't handle this movie so go away and watch Saw or something, this is for the real Horror Heads.
