This tape is a collection of short videos that are all products of remixing incredibly, ridiculously violent death scenes from popular Hollywood films, like the Untouchables or Mad Max. These videos were inspired after I produced Bad Vision which was inspired by experimental filmmaker David Rimmer. Some of these videos I consider black humour, others just plain sick and disturbing and one directly comments on society's constant craving for violence in the movies. Violence sells, after all. I don't believe that real life murder is in any way cool or hip just because I've used these death scenes. I only like fake scenes, because I used to want to be a make-up artist.
Enjoy.
