A Serbian Film (2010)

a.k.a. Srpski Film
"What he did for a living, now he is doing for his life"

Synopsis: Milos (Srdjan Todorovic), a retired porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" for a large sum of money in order to secure his family's future and make a clean break from the business. He soon discovers that he has been drafted by an insane director (Sergej Trifunovic) to make a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.

My Thoughts: I saw this a couple months ago and I'm glad that I didn't review it right away. I think this one probably needed some time to sink in (and a re-watch), so I could get past the content and actually think about the movie itself. I say that because it's a really well made film. The production, the acting, even down to the music. It's a shame that most people will never be able to get past the gore. I guess I understand. If that stuff didn't already happen to me as a child, it might freak me out too.

Just kidding! But really, this is a damn good flick and as long as you don't eat a can of spaghetti-o's while you're watching it you should be fine. It's rare that a movie like this is made that wasn't produced for under a thousand bucks.

Also, I think that the foreign element in this movie helped in making you feel even more uncomfortable. Since I'm not familiar with that country, I find it easy to believe that this shit is really going on. Therefore, I will add Serbia to my list of places that I will never visit.

My Rating: 8.5 / 10

All kidding aside, this is one of the best films that I've seen so far this year. I'm not saying that I want every horror movie to take it to this extreme, but I do like this hard-core shit once in a while.

If you have a chance to see it, don't miss out. You might not like it, but at least you'll have a story to tell your friends.
