Sometimes filmmaking is murder...literally.
Mitchell Altieri (The Hamiltons, Cinequest 2006) channels the filmmakers of the '70s and '80s in this homage to splatter exploitation films. Two brothers, desperate to break into the world of television and film, decide to enter a horror movie contest. And what could be more horrifying than the elusive snuff film? Of course, they won't actually kill someone on camera—all they're going to do is kidnap an actress, torture her, and make her think she's going to die. What could possibly go wrong? Charming, witty, and chilling, A Beginner's Guide to Snuff is sure to entertain lovers of black comedy and horror alike. - Amelia Masters
