This journey with death includes disaster on Germany's Autobahn, a parachutist landing in a crocodile pit, torture and murder in El Salvador, a videotaped rape and murder and a car thief vs. two junkyard dogs. 90 minutes.
"O.k, i have come to the conclusion that there are two different versions of the "Faces of death" series: The "authentic" version, and the "garbage re-run" version. I first rented Faces of Death part 3 a while ago, and although alot of the footage was obviously fake, it was all NEW material exclusive to part 3. However, i just bought the video a couple weeks ago, and was shocked to see that it was nothing more than a few crappy scenes from parts 1 & 4, and a bit of stock footage from "The many taboos of death". This is quite strange as to why Gorgon video would put out a "good" version, and a cheap thrown together bad version. And apperantly, this is also true with parts 245 and 6. one has all material exclusive to that volume, and the other is just a bunch of re-run footage from earlyer ones. I suggest anyone who has this problem write to gorgon video or whoever it is that distributes this filler, and demand an explanation....."

"I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! ITS SO INTERESTING TO WATCH. WHAT MOST PEOPLE DONT KNOW IS THAT ITS FAKE. YES I SAID ITS FAKE. NEED PROOF? CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEWS FROM THE PRODUCER. KNOWING ITS FAKE MAKES IT MORE BEARABLE TO WATCH."
Killer concept-NO substance

"I am as facinated as anyone on this concept (you wouldn't be reading this otherwise). Howerver, the best thing about this is the intro on the first movie. That is pretty much it. I don't know, this is just so DATED. That aside, death is death and having it "captured" on film should really be timeless but since this is , well, FAKE! it doesnt cut through. Well, "manipulated" is a better word since the suicide jumper, alligator parachutist,snake bite "victim", police shoot-out with hostage, monkey brain smashing, to name a few are just that. I'll let you know the inside on a couple, though you can tell for yourself if you really notice. The suicide jumper dude jumps and , as falls, notice the car on the falling camera shots,notice the angles (obvious dummy doll). The chick with the snake bite victim (appears for a second) is the same girl(interviewed) on the alligator attack on the police guy on the lake(on Faces of Death I).The dude who "killed himself in his cell" after a series of serial murders of oriental women is the same guy who was the "leader" of a deadly cult group (on,again,Faces of Death I).How would police just bust a door open (hostage scene)and blindlessly blast away full blast with a female hostage inside and have her just come out. No one I saw this with noticed this while first viewing but became quite obvious after explained second time around. All felt quite silly too, since first time seems (somewhat)real. 2 stars because the concept(and name)does get you, bet thats it."
Just got to buy it!!!

"I had only seen FOD 1, when I saw this. I'm just a sick Gore freak. Love horror films and the like, but this is more of a rush knowing that hidden in these dark and gory scenes are real scenes of death. The documentary element takes away some of the guilt of watching, but not all scenes are real, THEY DO CONTAIN SOME STAGED SCENE's. All in all I would recomend this to anyone who likes to be discusted, horrified, revoulted and even excited at the carnage they reveal. Not for the faint hearted or the squeemish. Don't take it too serious as anyone who is watching this type of film for the first time would/might not be able to distinguish the real from the fake."
What a crock!

"This has got to be the worst video ever! It's 99% fake and it pisses me off! It's like you're being insulted if they expect you to think all that crap is real! Buy 'College Girls Gone Crazy' instead!"
