Teaser Trailer for Faces of Death Remake

I’ve been pretty curious about the upcoming Faces of Death remake ever since it was announced last October. I have vague recollections of the original, its underground notoriety, and how a viewing turned boys into men. Sure, a lot of the movie was fake, but it still scared the crap out of me at the time. It’s been many years since I’ve seen it, but I wonder how it would hold up today, considering that you can now find videos of real death on YouTube within seconds. Can a new Faces of Death movie shock audiences in the same way that the original did?

iFilm has a teaser trailer for the remake, and I’m not sure, but I think it’s just reusing footage from the original (if it’s not, then they’ve definitely recreated the feel of it perfectly). Somehow it seems surreal to me that the trailer ends with the message that it will be “In Theatres Halloween 2007″. How many theatres will be willing to show it? Truthfully, we’re still not any closer to knowing what this remake has in store for us, but the trailer is plenty disturbing, that’s for sure. Given what I’ve read about director J.T. Petty and his previous film S&Man, I think we’re in for a ride.

    That’s disgusting. Did you need to post that trailer?

  • Yes. It was very necessary.

  • TheSnowLeopard

    Well it is anathema to me. The opposite of what movies are supposed to do: to entertain, to inform, to enrich our lives. I would like to hear your justification for this film’s existence. Seeing a man decapitated for real – how edifying. NOT!

  • Dude it’s just to shock you. This is just a step beyond the usual slasher movie. There isn’t any substance or justification other than you might be grossed out a couple of times.

    Don’t force people who like it to try and justify it. You’ll just end up with the same retarded comments like when people say zombies are really a symbolic representation of the vietnam war or whatever else they try and weave in there. It’s just to shock and disgust you.

  • The film exists for people to engage in debate about whether or not it should exist.

  • I beg to differ, Faces of Death is very educational. As I said on the podcast, thanks to this trailer, I now know what a beating human heart looks like.

    how do i put this on my ipod!?!?!?

  • curquizal

    hey, anyone know where the movie is being played? I would so love to see that and I’d also take my boyfriend with me as well, he’s not that much of a fan like me but as long as he comes… well, any where in california..

  • TR00 norwegian black metal

    They should play some tr00 kvlt Black Metal in the movie along with Slayer – Tormentor! I need to take a chick so she can grab me when the horrors are revealed in the shadows of the night afraid to walk the streets in the coldness all alone as the blackness of the night engulfs your flesh and bones.

    I wonder how the the re-make is going to turn out. Everything in the teaser trailer is just clips from the original Faces of Death. Anyways, about half of the original movie was real and half was fake. I would have to think that if there’s any real footage in the re-make it would be NC-17 and since most theaters won’t even carry NC-17, everything will probably be fake in the re-make, which kind of takes away the reason any would be curious to see this movie, because you’re not sure if it’s real or not. Hopefully the re-make turns out good.

    yeah… like the guy above me… this really looks more like a trailer from the original 1978 film. Plus, if they did include any real footage, how would the rating people have proof? they could just tell them that it’s fake and they plan to advertise it as real footage, giving it an R rating. But the real irony in that is that the footage actually IS real and if you didn’t believe it, it sort of gives of one of those “What if’s” in the back of your mind always making you think, what if that was real?……………. ok im gettin too into this XD

  • This won’t have the same effect on this generation, since we’ve had rotten.com for more than a decade now.

  • I can’t believe you guys ever thought this was real, all the footage is taken from the faces of death movies, the title cards look like they were made in windows movie maker, and the green card defenitly wouldn’t apply to this.

  • Thunder

    Ha,it may not be a real trailer, but its nicely done
