The fakeumentaire Faces of death is a classic horror that left moviegoers in disbelief as it showed different ways humans can die in graphic detail. The film includes clips from around the world and convinced everyone that the various deaths were real, but many were not.
Hollywood journalist declares that Legendary Entertainment (Godzilla vs. Kong) has reclaimed the franchise rights and is planning a reboot for the Gen z era. The team behind the 2018 Netflix sex worker thriller Cam (Isa Mazzei and Daniel Goldhaber) will write and direct.
The synopsis for the new movie is as follows:
“A moderator of a YouTube-like website whose job it is to remove offensive and violent content and who is recovering from severe trauma on her own, stumbles upon a group recreating the murders from the original film. But in the story prepared for the digital age of online disinformation, the question is: are the murders real or fake?
The first film was released in theaters in 1978 and written / directed by John Allan Schwartz. Initial reviews were not kind to the film as it was disgusted and banned in several countries. It was not until he hit the VHS market in the 1980s that it achieved a cult following, which helped fuel many sequels and imitators.
