I’m not the biggest horror fan… SAW doesn’t really do it for me. Months ago I heard about A Serbian Film.
Very odd yet generic name. I heard it getting a lot of buzz back at SXSW.
People were fainting and throwing up and shit… Much like they were when The Human Centipede came out. And as much as I loved Human Centipede, it was basically a no brainer that I had to check this shit out. I mean, it couldn’t POSSIBLY be any more graphic or disturbing that the anal sewing of than movie.
I was wrong, oh so very wrong.
A Serbian Film blurs the line between quality cinema and porn. I mean seriously
The film focuses on Milos, a former porn star who is down on his luck financially. When he receives a call from his long-time movie actress partner, Layla, he decides to meet with her. Apparently she’s heard that a new film director wants to hire him to star in his “artistically” porn for a lota dat cash money. He is easily lured and finds out quickly that he’s in over his head.
The next series of events include, but are not limited to…
*Beating on women and ejaculating on their faces
*Having your teeth pulled out of your head and have a dude shove his twigs and berries in your mouth, choking you to death.
*Fucking women and chopping their heads off… then continuing to fuck them.
*Fucking your 5 year old son.
*Stabbing someone in the eye with your erect penis and killing them.
END OF SPOILER
As you can see, this movie requires a strong constitution to make it through. It’s many kinds of messed up. But it succeeds at doing what horror movies are meant to do… disturb. And that it does. Tenfold.
This is a movie everyone should see… once… and only once. If you’re coming back for second helpings, you need to be in a mental hospital or put down. That said, this is one of my favorites of the year. Find a torrent. I’m sure even the NC-17 version will be cut down when it comes to the states officially next month.
As a very sick person, I am so totally interested in seeing this. Must check it out sometime.
