Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here.
We’ve written about this project before here at AICN, and I find it to be one of the more ambitious remakes. You literally can’t remake the FACES OF DEATH films, so what you’ve got is a title and a tone. People know what that title means... transgression. Something you shouldn’t look at.
Never mind whether the films really were as upsetting as they were supposed to be. They had a reputation. The best thing that can happen to a movie is for someone to ban it for content. Just today, I learned that PRO-LIFE is banned from Wal-Mart for content. I’ve never been prouder.
Someone must have been poking around producer Don Murphy’s site because they came up with a presentation reel, a sort of sample trailer, that is meant to suggest what you can expect from this new film. I want to see director J.T. Petty’s newest film S&MAN. I think he’s a promising, provocative director, and this film, despite my resistance to most remakes, is something that will be on my radar.
Here’s the trailer I found!
