Snuff (1976) Review:
Snuff was a video nasty that was banned and gained notoriety during the 70s. The film presents itself as a snuff film but is actually not. What made the film notorious is not the content itself …but the marketing behind. Thereee were tag lines for the film such as “The Bloodiest thing that ever happened in front of a camera. People believed it to be an actual snuff film and would protest that the film should never be shown on screen, even though most of them had never seen the content itself.
Actually, the film was made under the title Slaughter earlier in the 70s and wasn’t intended to be a snuff film at all. The film did poorly upon its release and therefore was forgotten about for several years, until someone picked it up again and edited it to have a different ending showing an actress being murdered in a savage and brutal way. This surely spiced up the film, but the previous filmmakers of the original film had no clue that the title of their film had been changed and edited until its initial release, under the new name of Snuff.
In summary, the point of the controversy is not the content of the film itself but the hype and marketing behind it which lead people to be believed it was a genuine snuff film. The film barely has anything violent in it until the final minutes Moreover, the acting is atrocious.
