FACES OF DEATH
John Alan Schwartz (as Conan Le Cilaire)
US, 1978, 35mm, VO ENG, 105'
Nauseating but undeniably compelling collection of (mostly) authentic footage of people or animals dying, often in grisly ways. This compilation video, once considered a rite-of-passage for teenage gorehounds, was such a scandalous success that it spawned no less than seven sequels and a raft of copycats.
