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.


Those do not qualify as snuff.

Working in safety I see plenty of videos and pictures of accidents which I don't consider snuff. I have seen some of the real stuff mainly what the cartels put out. Some of our drivers show off videos they find and they like to show them off with the excitement of children showing off trading cards " disgusting behavior and if they showed them off while I was in the room I would threaten them with a 3 day suspension" having said that I don't mind if they showed off videos of accidents and the like being that I could explain what the person did wrong and get feedback from the drivers in order to hopefully prevent the same thing from happening to our guys. The difference between a video or picture from a accident is no one expected to die that day while a snuff film someone is purposely ending a life just for fun or to send a message.

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".


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.


Well, considering many people do create incriminating evidence for themselves in other cases(people with stashes of child pornography, trinkets from a murder victim, having a receipt for the poison they bought, hell- people have been caught because they uploaded things to social media) accepting foolish behavior shouldn't be a problem. I find it foolish that someone would do it, too. That doesn't mean I put it past somebody.

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!

Closest ive seen is the death of Budd Dwyer(American politician convicted on bribes who killed himself on live TV) in a documentary on him. Not something I would like to repeat.

Where's the "thing" that have been uploaded to social media that has to do with murder?

Oh yes I would put it past someone.

I think all comes from a morbid curiosity about death. I have seen plenty of these videos and though I'm fairly desensitised to seeing people die on video, it does make me question life and death and such. I also feel bad for those losing their lives, especially at the hands of an aggressor. If you haven't seen a video like this, then I don't advise you start, it's one of the worst things you can watch but if your curiosity gets the best of you, then be warned.

I didn't say it involved murder; though my phrasing could have been clearer so I apologize for that. I was referring to instances of people incriminating themselves through social media, and clearly being foolish enough to create evidence that can later be used against them. A good example would be the guy who recently robbed a bank and uploaded the ordeal on Instagram. (http://www.denverpost.com/statistics/ci_28067337/bank-robbery-suspect-posts-photo-video-instagram)

You may, I wouldn't. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this point.

I once, out of morbid curiosity, watched a sped up version of a guy strangling himself to death on webcam... it was disturbing, and as close as I've ever gotten to seeing a live human die in front of me. I never want to see that again.
