The Great American Snuff Film (2003)

"Two psychos abduct a couple of girls so that they can create a 'snuff masterpiece'."

Supposedly this is based on true events and a real serial killer... but it's all a lie. Basically, this movie is trying to be the "Blair Witch Project" of serial killer films but it doesn't have even half the entertainment value.

The story, such as it is, is about a supposed serial killer, William Allen Grone. He's fake btw. Anyway, Grone and his friend Roy abduct a couple of girls (both of them quite skanky actually) so that they can create a "snuff masterpiece".

The quality of everything in this movie is below poor. The camerawork is all over the place, the acting is non-existent, and the gore is minimal (relying mostly on a few pints of fake blood and lots of screaming). You don't get to see anything! You don't get to hear much either as the sound is extremely bad too.

The tied-up girls did an ok job but I didn't care about either of them so all their scenes were pretty much a waste of time. Actually the whole thing was a waste of time. It wasn't scary, it wasn't all that horrific. It's so badly done that I am not sure that I should even count this as a movie at all.

The big selling point this had (back in 2003) was that, supposedly, the end is footage from a real snuff film. It isn't, of course, and is the poorest fake of a snuff film I have ever seen. I remember seeing better stuff on that infamous "Executions" video over 15 years ago and that was crap too.

Anyway, I'll give it 1 out of 10. It was a nice idea but it failed in its execution. (I don't believe I just wrote that!)
