Описание: Следуйте за нашими камерами, и Вы увидите реальные самоубийства, убийства, вскрытие трупов и бальзамирование, станете свидетелями ужасной смерти одного несчастного туриста, случайно заснятой на кинокамеру, когда на глазах у семьи его растерзали и съели голодные львы. Вы услышите пронзительное жужжание инструментов патологоанатома, когда они вырывают плоть и перемалывают кости. Все это и многое, многое другое произойдет прямо перед Вашими неверящими глазами. `Лики Смерти` - первый правдивый и шокирующий документальный фильм, в котором собраны редчайшие кадры нечеловеческих зверств. Он ведет зрителя в мрачный мир, в который можно попасть только будучи мертвым...
Рецензии: Wow theres not much that a user can say about this movie except maybe "Gross" or "wow" or "Shocking". But the movie is much more. A lot of people have badmouthed this film due to its violent content but that is just the point of the movie.
Although it doesnt live up to its image it is at times shocking and sickening. Its by far better than Faces of Death is. The narration is boring at times and it seems like the narrator is trying to gross people out and waste time instead of explaining the situations.
While it is more graphic than Faces of Death it does miss the storyline and the narrator explaining the things. There are several scenes that I found strange and would have liked to know some background on what I was seeing but it was not there.
Another low point in the film is the major hospital scenes. People under the knife and what not. This would have been truly shocking in the 80's / early 90's but now that we have shows like "Trama Life in the ER" scenes like this fall short of being shocking.
Overall the movie is well rounded in its style. Some times the movie does drag on but its much more entertaining than films like "Mondo Cane" and the like.
Overall I give this movie a 8 out of 10. While the film did keep me interested It fell short of being shocking. The prolonged warning at the beginning just made me hit the FF button.
***KEY POINT*** A key point to look for in this movie is towards the end they are "selling" body parts and other sick things.....its strange and without giving it away, just check it out for yourself. Its funny, strange, and shocking. I call it a reward for suffering through the whole entire movie. ***KEY POINT***
So overall I give this movie a 8/10. Its worth checking out if your a hardcore mondo fan...which I am not
