      Supposedly banned in 46 countries, “Faces of Death” is an extremely controversial film that depicts just what it claims: death, in every imaginable circumstance. Using both real videos and skillful reenactments, “Faces of Death” takes the viewer where few dare to venture: into morgues, autopsy rooms, accident scenes, slaughterhouses, and death row.

        And nothing in the autopsy rooms is faked or reenacted. It simply displays the aftermath of human life: meat. Lifeless meat just lying around waiting to be cut open and investigated.

        Did “Faces of Death” give me nightmares? Absolutely. But it gave me something else: a fierce new appreciation of life. It is not for the faint of heart, but it IS for the brave of soul.
