Say Hello To Dr. Death

A simple, but very well conceived teaser trailer for J T Petty's Faces of Death has popped up online. You may remember the much-banned Faces series of snuff videos, and the ever decreasing spiral of discussion that debated how 'real' their grisly images were. This confusion and controversy forms the backbone of the marketing approach in evidence here, and it seems to be a shrewd angle.

Reportedly, not a single frame has been shot yet, but the film is due in time for Halloween this year. Hopefully that means more news, and soon. I've got my eye on this one, and I think it may well turn out to be something special.

Wow. That looks 1000x better than I could have ever imagined. I expected them to just use the title with a weak logo imagined with a skull and snakes. Instead, ewwwww. Can't wait for more info from you guys on this one.
