FEATURE FILM. From Peeping Tom to Videodrome and beyond, an evaluation of the snuff element in mainstream cinema.

 

MONDO FILM. A comprehensive analysis of this voyeuristic genre, from Mondo Cane to the 'shockumentaries' of today.

 

DEATH FILM. From Faces of Death and other compilations such as the recent Executions, to live-TV suicides and news-reel footage.

 

A comprehensive filmography and index

 

 

Illustrated by rare and stunning photographs from cinema, documentary and real life, Killing for Culture is a necessary book which examines and questions the human obsession with images of violence, dismemberment and death, and the way our society is coping with an increased profusion of these disturbing yet compelling images from all quarters.
