It’s only been a few years since Faces Of Death ‘s indexing was extended due to its still shocking appeal. Accordingly, surprisingly, the trend reversal followed last February: The cult shocker by John Alan Schwartz , also known in this country as «Faces of Death», was removed from the index in the unabridged version and as a result can finally be advertised and sold openly in Germany. And so that all those who are enthusiastic about such offbeat cinema actually get the chance to put the legendary, controversial classic on their shelves, the film is now getting its new edition in home cinema.
The shocker was recently released as a limited edition and was completely sold out within a very short time, now the new edition follows: «Faces Of Death» appears as a completely unabridged new edition in several, strictly limited media book editions, which you can get now. As with the previous releases, it should be worth being quick this time too. The controversial cult film enjoys enormous popularity in genre circles, so that the upcoming editions will only be available for a short time.

This is Faces Of Death
What exactly is behind the film, which consists of a collection of both real and staged recordings of dying people and is banned in over 40 countries, we have already explained in more detail in the article on the index delisting of «Faces Of Death» . For all those who have no idea what we are talking about here, here are the most important things again:
In the 1970s, the documentary-looking film was discussed more controversially than almost any other film and, above all, triggered a heated debate about the all-important question: Are the shots seen in the film real or staged? And even if that question has now been clarified, «Faces Of Death» can no longer be denied its reputation as one of the most shocking films of all time. The film once grossed an incredible 35 million dollars and is still one of the must-sees of extreme cinema among die-hard horror fans.

However, you should be prepared for one thing: Despite the background story about the fictional Dr. Francis B. Gröss ( Michael Carr ) «Faces of Death» only works to a limited extent as a classic film, but rather sees itself as a collection of images that are difficult to digest and that primarily serve one purpose: They tear the rug out from under the audience’s feet. Even today.
