Read in April, 2011

I feel there is much to be said rationally speaking many books has as I’ve read had better preparation of plots or climaxes than pages and pages of extreme description of the violence that is involved in snuff films this book presents. I’m not talking about other snuff film books. But about this one there’s a garish and morbid sense of humour in the subject, its outlines with few details of how such things could happen. Supposing that John (aka Jack) was to become such a force because he had his lurid upbringing matching his psychotic behaviour to other serial killers and well known is that serial killers were often adopted having an unhappy childhood and killed one of their parents. Or something like that. So not to add any spoilers this is a story mainly about a snuff film industry beginnings by a sick individual who had help by his best friend who wasn’t even a good friend but that they found they had the same thirst for snuff that they worked good together.

Death’s Door by Michael Slade has plot. Mystery and suspense that can relate with readers is amoung another thing. Certainly I’d prefer if Snuff had been longer or descriptive but then I suppose there was reasons of minimaling the story to actions and relating them as details of facts of what buying snuffs would be like. After all we don’t need porn to become so bad the actors die before the credits.
