  • This movie touches on all of those topics, but in a way that makes it somewhat interesting to watch in a non-sick way
  • Milos story is one big bumpy ride that needs to be experience in its full length so don’t skip anything, even if it looks to be getting bad
  • There were a few scenes in the movie that showed more grain than anything, but the detail throughout the entire movie is amazing and spot on
  • For a DVD release this is one of the best I've seen

      What may go down in history as the most shocking and disturbing films of our time, A Serbian Film follows in the footsteps as the now infamous shock film The Human Centipede. A Serbian Film has already been banned in countries, been labeled with XXX ratings and the director himself is actually facing criminal charges for showing the movie at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain. With hype like this is it really safe to watch this horror film?

      Retired Serbian porn star Milos is living the suburban lifestyle with his wife and six year old son. Milos ex-colleague Lejla presents Milos with a job opportunity he might be interested in since his early retirement funds are already coming to an end. A mysterious figure by the name of Vukmir really needs Milos for his unique skills in his artistic adult movie, so much that he offers him enough money that he’d never have to worry about anything again.

      Milos eventually gives in and accepts Vukmir offer, not just for the money but a way to get back into the business he misses. One


      of the agreements Milos has to follow is how the films script would only be given to him by an earpiece, and it would be done in one take. As Milos descents into Vukmir’s artistic adult movie, he realizes that Vukmir’s idea of “art” goes way beyond your typical adult movie ideas.

      A Serbian Film is one of those movies you are curious to see, but after seeing it you might not run out and tell everyone you know that you saw it or they should watch it. While graphic horror movies are on the rise right now, A Serbian Film makes everything you know look tame, thanks to its violence, sexual abuse, rape, torture, necrophilia, sodomy, incest, pedophilia, and hardcore pornography. This movie touches on all of those topics, but in a way that makes it somewhat interesting to watch in a non-sick way.

      If you can get past all of the messed up content in the movie then you might find something worthwhile. A Serbian Film is set to a perfect classic horror film score, in the veins of Halloween or Hellraiser.

      The movie is nicely shot with a good production value. Some of the on scene locations A Serbian Film was filmed on looks gorgeous. Writer and director Srdjan Spasojevic doesn’t just throw out these shocking moments at you from out of nowhere. He builds everything up so nicely, you will be watching this movie in fear because you don’t know what is around the corner.

      Most movies that have one big, extreme horror idea that is going to change the world tend to have their movies fall flat when that moment comes. With A Serbian Film, each of those shocking moments makes perfect sense and then it will build into another moment that will shock audiences even more. It is a real shame that this movie is getting so much bad press over those few scenes that some countries have said is child pornography or extreme smut. Spasojevic has a purpose for everything in the film. Milos story is one big bumpy ride that needs to be experience in its full length so don’t skip anything, even if it looks to be getting ...

      bad.

      The anamorphic 2.35:1 transfer is excellent on DVD. There were a few scenes in the movie that showed more grain than anything, but the detail throughout the entire movie is amazing and spot on. For a DVD release this is one of the best I’ve seen. The movie was shot on the Red One HD camera, which seems to be an ongoing trend with movies anymore. I don’t mind it because the transfers on blu-ray are beautiful, but on DVD they are just as good.

      The Dolby stereo 2.0 and 5.1 surround sound helps the movies cause. From the eerie screams to some of the most disgusting shots in cinema history to the films score, the audio choice was a nice choice for the DVD release.

      With the DVD import release of A Serbian Film there are two special features, a nearly 4 minute introduction with writer and director Srdjan Spasojevic and a Q&A segment that lasts for almost 10 minutes. The introduction lets Spasojevic explain that nature of the film, with a little gag at the end, right before he can deliver

      the key message. The Q&A talks about the different cuts that had to be made to the film for it to get shown anywhere and how a lawyer had to watch the film before Spasojevic could show it in certain public events.

      Every 10 years there comes a movie that pushes the limits, almost to a point where the film itself never sees the light of day. 1967 gave movie goers the violent scene from Bonnie and Clyde. In the seventies we had A Clockwork Orange, with its rape scenes. During the eighties Cannibal Holocaust shocked the world with the filming of a cannibalistic tribe. And how about in 1992 when Basic Instinct came out? That movie caused so much trouble and it was just for that one shot with Sharon Stone crossing her legs.

      When you look at it, A Serbian Film is just another movie that is pushing the limits. The nature of the film, if one can handle it, is pretty good. The movie makes perfect sense and the plot is interesting. This movie isn’t all that bad as some are making it out to be.
