Have you seen one before? Why would you think people have seen one or even made one?

For obvious reasons, I won't upload any videos onto CR but you're free to look if you dare

EDIT: Was this seriously reported? I see threads about rape, pedophilia and death but this thread strikes it? Thanks whoever reported


(I didn't report the post, but)

Snuff films are urban legends. They don't exist.

My wife forced me to watch a 2 hour snuff movie.

It sucked.

It was called "The passion of the Christ"

At least I insisted on a download of it so that no one would get any money from me watching that crap!


That doesn't qualify as snuff since the actor wasn't killed.

I've seen a few clips of executions and stuff, but I don't seek them out and avoid watching them when they are brought to me. I really just can't stand to watch that sort of stuff.


Those don't qualify because they are not made for the purpose of entertainment but for records / news / propoganda / instilling fear (i.e. itself an act of terrorism) etc.

There was one feature films released in the late 70's showing public executions and grotesque mishaps and practices.I've seen more than enough people die for this to have any interest for me.


Was it "Faces of Death"? If so, I don't think it qualifies since the original footages weren't snuff.

So what is so offensive about a film of people putting finely ground tobacco up their noses? Is it the sneezing I know thats a bit of a turn off

Only snuff film I've ever seen was Faces of Death, but that wasn't actors who were hired to die but people who died on film.

They made like a million of them too, especially after the first one became so popular.

I'm not a snuff expert. If I were, I'd be likely in prison.

I'm no expert either, but I think Snopes had a fair definition on its page:

http://www.snopes.com/horrors/madmen/snuff.asp


Snuff films depict the killing of a human being — a human sacrifice (without the aid of special effects or other trickery) perpetuated for the medium of film and circulated amongst a jaded few for the purpose of entertainment.

A jaded few...That seems harsh. They may be nice people....

I haven't seen films, but I've seen people die on video via ISIS and 9/11. It gets me off my feet and makes me want to do something about it, but I know I'll just die if I do x)

As many people have already pointed out, 'snuff film' tends to be a bit of a misnomer. If anyone has seen a snuff film as it's defined- they've participated in some rather illicit activity.

I don't buy that snuff films are just a myth, though. Even if it's not a common surface occurrence; I'm sure there are literal snuff films somewhere, because when a niche exists people fill it.

I haven't watched a literal snuff film. I did however use to be a 'snuff jockey' on an old forum. It boiled down to archiving gore images/videos/etc. of war, riots, crimes caught on camera and all that nonsense. I was drawn to graphic stuff like that because it brought about a feeling of extreme empathy and gave me a lot of scope into how I view the human condition. Watching an execution is upsetting. Watching it while putting yourself in the place of the individual is terrifying.

If you see the Snopes article I've linked to, there's not as much as even a verified eyewitness account of the existence of snuff.

No actual physical proof, not even any real witnesses. Everything points to "no".

I've seen a few.

There are also a handful of very dedicated gore sites that I visit often. I've probably seen several hundred if we include these. Many deaths are caught on camera. I don't really consider it snuff since it's not usually acting and these things aren't exactly movies, but they do show reality as the cold, hard thing that it is.

The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. I simply find it hard to believe that not one person has filmed murder with the intent to profit off of it's distribution.

Evidence from lack of belief to the contrary is not evidence. I could just as easily state that I "simply find it hard to believe" that anyone would be so incredibly foolish as to actually create incriminating evidence.
