Scary scary scary

Very few movies have actually given me nightmares (Event Horizon (Two-Disc Special Collector's Edition), Nosferatu (The Ultimate Two-Disc Edition)) or made me scared to look in the closet (The Exorcism of Emily Rose - Unrated (Special Edition), The Grudge) or truly scared me (Nosferatu (The Ultimate Two-Disc Edition), Event Horizon (Two-Disc Special Collector's Edition) and The Exorcism of Emily Rose - Unrated (Special Edition)). This one has done all three.

This movie is about a film student writing her thesis on violence in the media. Tagging along another film fanatic, they stumble upon a snuff film (look it up) in the black market. Is it real, is it fake? Who make it? These are the questions they keep asking themselves over and over. And when they get the answers, is it too late?

Full of suspense, great twists and a really good plot, this film is truly "one of those" films that will make you think about what you see and the dangers "out there". Or at least that is what I thought when, at 16, I watched this movie. Forget 8MM (Nicholas Cage) and anything like that, this film is so much better, also a lot more violent and shocking.
