Well what a mess but a must see for people who love gore and grossness. It's a combination of footage of real and faked deaths and some are disturbing some are cheesy. The most fascinating material I thought was watching some tourists eat monkey brains, the method of killing the monkey is horrible! There are also some real executions and suicide attempts and death by reptile etc etc. If you are a ghoul (which I am) you will want to see this, but it's poorly organized and the fake material should really not be included if they truly wanted to make a documentary. It seems like a joke and although yes there are some ewww moments it's hardly enough to make it rewatchable in any form.
