A mockumentary hosted by Dr. Francis B. Gross, a coroner. He is trying to show you the different faces of people while dying. There are faked scenes of people getting killed intermixed with footage of real accidents. There are executions by decapitation (in an Arab country) and the electric chair. One scene shows a group of tourists in Egypt smashing a monkeys head while still alive and eating its brains. There are shots of animals eating people and satanic orgies using dead bodies. There is a segment that deals with an alligator that accidentally entered residential waters. The local warden goes in his boat to get the crocodile back into the sea when he accidentally falls over and becomes gator bait. The film ends with news clippings of people jumping off buildings and major accidents.

The guys at the video store let me rent this one when I was like 12 years old. I used to be into all that sicko horror stuff, so the box for FOD really interested me. ANYWAYS, the scumbags actually let me rent it, and let me tell you, by the end of the movie, I was totally disturbed about death and dying. A few weeks later, my grandfater passed away and it was really hard for me to deal with because I kept thinking about all the stuff I saw in Faces Of Death.

I anxiously awaited this DVD for about 6 weeks hoping for some real stomach churning gross explicit executions and gore. But its mostly just fake scenes or old World War 2 footage of the Hollocaust and maybe some TV news footage. Its not even high quality explicit gore. Even the doco at the end of the dvd is just a "B-Grade" sham. Honestly I would not buy this movie again. Spend your money on a DVD that you will watch more then once and not one that you will be Fast forwarding thru, due to boredom, trying to find a good bit. Or did I miss the point, was it meant to be funny? I did have a couple of laughs.

If you have never seen the Faces of Death videos, do yourself a favor,and pass on this morbid horror show. Most of the actual death scenesfeature grainy footage from the 1950s or earlier, that just makes thewhole event look even nastier than it is. There are also a lot of death events that have been reenacted based onnewspaper stories or other documentation. The reenacted scenes aresometimes passed off as real footage. You have to listen closely to thenarration to know what is real, and what has been faked. Then you get a fair amount of old photos of dead people, accidentvictims, etc. This is the kind of stuff you can google, and see evenworse. This was the first Faces of Death, and it has most of the reallyold and early footage and grainy photos. Add it all up, and between the grainy footage, the bad editing, and thegross and grotesque nature of some of the death scenes, this film willmake you want to throw up. There is no upside to this video. It is justabout looking at dead people.

IMDb users seem to be divided in those who actually believe all this stuffis authentic and those who see through it, since 24% consider this to be amasterpiece (voting 10) and 30% well...don't. (voting 1)I had never heard anything specific about this film, just that it was agrowse piece of work. Until one hour into the film I actually thought thiswas all real, and I thought this was really fascinating stuff. Then came thehitman's story and I couldn't help but laugh. The incidents with wildanimals (a bear/crocodile) are initially unnerving, but on second viewingthey come off as unmistakably fake and poorly executed. But, and this is myfavorite, when we actually hear a countdown and something is clearly pushedout of a window (We are meant to believe this is a woman committing suicide)I didn't know what to think. Is the director really trying to make us thinkthis all happened? Is it a parody on the most serious of matters? Anywaythis is highly unethical stuff and I'm probably overreacting, but those 24%actually thought they were watching people die- and they thought it was fun.

A documentary to end all documentaries, this film shows people what death is really like. If you want realism and a dose of the cruel reality that is life this film is for you.

"Faces of Death"--or any of its library of sequels and ripoffs--is acollection of death scenes. Yes, that's it. Some comprise of actualfootage,and some are merely staged. But the point is, "Faces of Death" is for themorally depraved only. Anyone who wants to spend money or even timewatchingpeople or animals dying has a problem. And the staged footage is anattemptto satisfy the bloodlust of the depraved people who have chosen to watchthis. "Faces of Death" stands as a symbol to a symptom of a sicksociety.

Why even produce a film that shows violent death, mutilation, autopsies, bloody body parts, and other revolting close-ups? What can possibly be society's gain from this?One of my friends had this tape, and wanted me to watch it. When it was over, I just looked at him and said, "And you actually *liked* this movie? You actually *bought* this movie?"Sick...

People who think this movie is about gross images and about "let's seehow far we can push the limit of gore" - these people need to pay themost attention, probably watch the movie again, if they even saw it thefirst time. Faces of Death is not trying to scare you, get you to hideunder your bed, stay inside most of the time and wear 3 bullet proofvests when outside. It is not trying to satisfy the lust for gore(people who liked Faces of Death for that - no offense, it's yourchoice to like gory movies, but this one wasn't about it). It's astatement, and what's better it "in your face" statement. A lot ofpeople hated it for graphic violence. But if you saw an interview withthe creator of the series then you would know that the worst thing wasthe smell (for example the autopsy scene). You are only watching it onTV and it's already too much for you. You are not even experiencing it.And what we see in the movie, whether it's staged or live footage, itall happened with real people like you and me. Then what was it forthem? Super much? You are getting a chance to learn something thatthese people learned. But unlike those characters Â you get to live andcreate more life. You get to learn not to make the mistakes that youwitnessed in the movie, be it cruelty to animals, insanity, stupidity(like the drowned hippie who drowned more of alcohol then the water)and cruelty to other people. The accidents of course you can do nothingabout. It's sad and horrific, especially like the one with the plane.And while it's true that a lot of residents who lived in the area ofthe crash probably never traveled by plane after this, we Â theviewers, can look and draw a conclusion that stuff happens, and weshouldn't limit our lives out of fear of death. Life is not aboutsitting at home, watching TV, going to work and falling asleep. It'sabout excitement and adventure. But those things come with risk andit's just something that needs to be accepted. That is one of thethings the movie was trying to say. Life is too short to be spent onrunning from death; the topic of which seems to be avoided like aplague. And has anyone mentioned the ending? No! Warning: a Bigspoiler. If you haven't seen the movie Â don't read further. The lastthing we see in the movie is a birth of a baby - about the beautifulthings in life, about a new chance. The things about children is Â theygo out and do dangerous things out of curiosity and lack of fear,adults have the knowledge and ability to do more then children but theylose their curiosity to fear. Watch the movie again and this time don'tfocus so much on the gore. It's not the point of the movie.

I agree with the others , only half of this so called "documentary" was real ....I think the alligator attack was what makes me think that. I havent seen the rest of the series but since everyone else thinks they're better than the original i guess i'll have to rent them .
Kevin Hagge 17 May 2013
I saw Faces of Death a couple of years ago, and to this day I watch it atleast twice a year. Even though a lot of the scenes are faked, I am sosickof people putting this movie down. If only they could read the end creditswhich say that some scenes in the movie are fake. I'm wondering if thesepeople are only mad because the entire Faces of Death crew has much moremoney than what they will ever see. The only bad thing anyone could sayabout this movie is that it isn't a hardcore shockumentary like mostpeoplewould expect. If you are looking for one of those, pick up Traces of DeathI-IV.

Scary stuff on this DVD but it is educational. I had no idea that they did those things to the animals in the slaughter house. Makes me almost want to go vegetarian. The whole DVD was very educational. It let me know more of what is going on in the world. I must have felt every emotion there is while looking at this DVD.

Faces of Death, that's a movie that needs no introduction. After theMondo Cain franchise it was time to bring something new, a filmconcerning death. In those days it was easy to get news footage or realfootage. You just contacted the news station and for a few bucks youcould get a box full of nasty footage. That's what the people behindFOD did. I must say, some scene's are really disgusting, especially theanimal cruelty. Some other shots will make you look in other directionsthan the television screen. The people with money, Chinese behind theproject, dared the makers to give 'more death' as they stated. So aftera while they gave us death. Some parts are a bit boring or are out ofdate, the electrocution is boring but still the flick works. Itdelivered us a franchise and a lot of rip offs but the funny part isthe fact that if you buy the Blu-Ray version you will have someexplanation about the movie and I must admit, it's as shocking as thefilm itself.

How can anyone enjoy a movie with death and gore? Are you all a bunch of sickos that have no feelings on how preaceous life is? Hey if something bad happens to one of your loved ones you should enjoy it. After all you enjoyed a piece of trash like this.
mardox51690 09 May 2013
For those of you who are not well known of the film's history,it usedto be that Faces Of Death was ALL REAL,but they had to take and makesome of their own shots for legal purposes.Families of the dead shownin the movie were saying that that they would sue if their familymembers were shown like the way they were.Also in some cases theycouldn't get a hold of the footage them selves so they would act out ashot.It is NOT true that 85% of the movie was fake.I have done a lot ofresearch on it maybe 45% of the movie is fake.Even with all thecontroversy surrounding the movie,Ithink it was well done.The firsttime that I saw it I couldn't sleep for 3 days.This movie is scary ashell.Any way I give this film 8/10

i hear messed up things about this movie i don't know if all the stuffid fake or some of it or none of it but i don't think in the 70'speople could fake graphic things like killing people I've also seenrandom videos with the title faces of death and they were pretty realand i don't think videos of people getting stabbed in the throat orshot in the head should be legal for people to see i feel sick thinkingabout what i saw...i think seeing that kinda stuff at 16 can reallyf*** people up considering i saw it at school on the computer causesome other kids were looking at it and it caught my eye those crazyass***** were watching it over and over and wow thats messed up.

This is a nasty film from the late seventies, showing the various deaths of humans and animals from around the world. The problem is most of them are faked, and so the end result is bad. The DVD picture is alright, and the sound in Dolby Digital stereo is ok. The extras feature an extra program, Faces of Death Fact or Fiction? which interviews the director Conan Le Cilaire, who reveals how the scenes were simulated. There's also some trailers for other videos in a similar vein. A mediocre film, but you get two longish films (155 minutes) on one disc. One for fans of cheap exploitation films.
05 May 2013
this is one of the greatest and sickest movies I've ever seen it has everything from suicides to executions. I think the best parts in the film are the alligator and bear attacks. Also I Think the plane crash is cool how it shows mutilated bodies all over the street. So if you have the chance get it.
smegmaface_1986 05 May 2013
The purpose of this movie was to make us face our own realities. Thatwe will soon die. Death wasn't meant to be pretty. And thats the wholepoint to provoke, to catch you attention, so you can wake the f up andsee that you cant waste life. some people cant face the fact they theywill die. the movie affected me as well and st some scenes disturbedme. but at that very moment i felt more aware of my life and how muchtime i may or may not have left. i am not a sick person and i have seenthese movies more than once. My boyfriend owns the entire collection.Sometimes i go to a cemetery and dig up dead bodies and eat cats forlunch. and then i realize that things are not so bad. I love the Doctorin this movie. he makes me think about flowers and dogs that are beingstabbed to death.

Undoubtedly one of the worst movies of all time. And how many sequels werethere? With the possible exception of 3, the live action sequences werestaged. Alt.folklore.urban has decimated this movie. When mixed in w/ someshots of real animal slaughter, cadavers, and other dead things, I can onlyimagine a 14-16 yr old could enjoy and believe such tripe. As forentertainment value? Why not get a stick and poke at road kill for 88 min.If you liked that movie see Surf Nazis Must Die, The Leprechaun, or TheBlade Master.

Are we looking at a Documentary here, or just plain old Gruesomeexploitation? Overrated garbage, or underrated trash? Is it real, or isit fake? Hell yes to all. Whatever Faces Of Death is going for, itsucceeds, how you view it only depends on how delicate yoursensibilities might, or might not be. I guess the opening autopsyfootage should be taken as somewhat of a warm-up, or absolute proofthat this one isn't for you. From there, we are guided through adisturbing, yet slightly humorous, world-wide journey through thepitch-black, unforgiving realm of the only sure thing in life, death.Our tour of the dark side include "executions", "asassinations","suicides", a rather long look inside a morgue, monkey brains beingserved in a restaurant, natural disasters, a bear attack, a peak insidethe goings on of a satanic cult, and even religious, snake-handlers arethrown into the mix. A harsh, groundbreaking look at things we onlyhear, and read about, although, probably not quite harsh enough to bebanned in 46 countries... then again, maybe it is. Watching Faces OfDeath probably wouldn't make most people feel any better about dying.And, when you break it all down, this film really is just an extremelygutsy gore movie, disguised as a documentary. Fine with me. Aside fromthis, Faces Of Death is fairly interesting. I see no reason why theycouldn't play this on The National Geographic Channel... oh yeah, well,there's always the eating of the monkey brains, but jeepers, even thatis a little interesting. The only thing I could have really donewithout was the slaughterhouse scene. I'm a fan of gore, but Sheepgushing blood out their necks isn't very interesting, although, I guessthey mean well, it's not like they were condoning these things, onlymaking us aware. If we look at it like that, then Faces Of Death is arather noble production, but not quite as deep as they're going for,but deep, nonetheless. Faces Of Death is certainly worth watching,probably even more than once, but spawning everything from Faces OfDeath 2-6, to Traces Of Death, to Faces Of Gore might be a littlemuch.This one is about as well-known as a B-movie could be without theluxury of being shown on television, now, that's what I call areputation. Whether you consider this film to be as repulsive, anddisgusting as you always heard, or simply another over-blown, urbanlegend, Faces Of Death will always be known as king of theshockumentaries. Whatever that's worth.
