Faces of Death Collection [4 Discs] [DVD]

This grisly box set of four DVDs contains the first four films in the infamous Faces of Death series, which have become well known because they contain supposedly genuine images of death and destruction. The discs contain standard full-frame transfers. English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials consist of trailers for other releases from Gorgon Video, and addition materials concerning the original title in the series. There is little here for the average DVD consumer, although fans of this infamous series will not be disappointed in the least.

Synopsis

Faces of Death II
Faces of Death IV
Gorgon Video presents the fourth entry in the cult-classic Faces of Death series. Continuing with the same type of material explored in the first three volumes, Faces of Death IV features even more gruesome scenes of death and carnage designed to leave audiences wonder if what they've just witnessed is real or staged. Among the images included in the disturbing clips are an attack by a vicious man-eating tiger, a body being cremated, a man being drawn and quartered by horses, an electrocution, and footage from a Columbian wedding that ended in a bloodbath. This program is intended for an adult audience. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Faces of Death
Experience the ultimate in cinematic shock and horror as Dr. Francis Gross (Michael Carr) leads viewers on a guided exploration of that fateful moment when the spark of life is brutally snuffed out. Everybody dies -- it's the fate we all face from the moment we're born. There's simply no escape from the encroaching darkness, and in this film we're offered a firsthand glimpse at the many ways that life can end. From airplane crashes to railway disasters, some of us meet a spectacular end while others fall prey to hungry wildlife predators, an assassin's bullet, or - as in the case of some condemned prisoners - get strapped into the electric chair and blasted into the afterlife with over 2000 volts of pure electricity. With Dr. Gross as our guide, we bear witness to death in its many forms -- even visiting a debauched death cult that mixes the ecstasy of sex with the sweet release of that final moment. Horrific glimpses of animal slaughter reveal the cruelty man can unleash upon creatures lower on the food-chain, and authentic autopsy footage indulges our morbid curiosities about our final stop on the way to the grave. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Faces of Death III
From MPI Home Video comes Faces of Death III, a collection of allegedly real scenes of death and horror. Produced by Gorgon Video, the 90-minute program features graphic footage of car wrecks, crocodile and dog attacks, torture, rape, and murder. Composed of clips from such locations as Germany and El Salvador, this release was preceded by Faces of Death and Faces of Death II, and was followed by Faces of Death IV. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
