Probally one of the most notorious films of the video nasties but to be honest it's not as bad as people will probally say it is alot of the footage is faked which to be honest takes away the impact of the film but some of the real footage can leave you feeling a bit ughh but it's worth a look anyway. If you are thinking of buying this film I reccomend getting the American import as the uk version is cut by 2 minutes and 22 seconds if you have a weak stomach do not watch.
I won't go into what the entails I will let you make your own mind up

This was made at the end of the 70s and still today is just as shocking with seriously in your face scenes of death, the documentary at the time was banned due to its graphic violence mainly the slaughtering of animals and scenes of bodies and corpses, some of this which was revealed as being faked to add more spark to the story at the time, the footage was very well made at the time and still looks shocking today, there is some great features on the region 1 version including a making of revealing the secrets of the movie. If you into horror this is a classic bit of filmmaking and a must see, be warned many people will be offended and disgusted by what is shown this is no joke.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice release! 19 Aug. 2009
By J. A Miller - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A film like FOD deserves to have a special release for it's 30th anniversary. I think this release will spark a lot of new comers to the film. Because of this, I think it is important to view this film completely within the context of when it was made. This hardly seems shocking in 2009 and we also now know much of it was faked. However, the way in which it was faked is pure genious. The way they were able to match film stocks, exposure and shooting style for each individual scene is really quite remarkable. Sure, you can tell now that some of the famous scenes are not real, but it is still hard to tell which shots are original and which are recreated within each individual scene.

The overall transfer is very good looking. It was also released on Blu-Ray but I really can't imagine that it looks so much better than this version. The special features are very nice. Special segments from the FX team and the editor are very interesting to watch. The audio commentary is also very good.

Anyway, nice treatment to such a classic and noteworthy film.

Well we had heard about this movie through a friend of ours...He told us that you see people beign murdered, committing suicide, etc etc. We believed it was a true story, and that there was no acting. So we were very disappointed to see the special features, on how they created the scenes!

As i knew the UNCUT version of this from my Danish tape i was disusted to see that this "30TH ANNIVERSARY edition" was missing a scene that lasts about 4 minutes !!
Would have thought that they released it uncut when going through the trobles of making a "3oth Anniversay"....

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from my Past 2 Jun. 2011
By RKO Mom - Published on
Format: DVD
First of all, I am a female. Not only guys look for stuff like this. I, too, watched this, as a young, naive girl. Huddled up with girls at a slumber party...thinking of the WORST thing we could watch. It is a classic, cult or otherwise. A reminder of a time when freedoms were celebrated, not policed. When individuality stood for something. At time, when we were not berated or ostracized for quirky (or outlandish) interests. Quit judging!!! To each his (or her) own!! Find something more productive to do than criticize those who have different interests than your own. Gain some tolerance, why dontcha!?!? And get a little happiness while you're at it!!!!
