Faces of Death Remake Has a Story

Death lives.

by | August 24, 2007 | Comments

A
phenomenon that mainly existed in the days of VHS video in the 1980s, the
Faces of Death
series popularized snuff flicks, featuring supposedly real killings.  A 2008
version would exist in a very different climate, and producer
Rick
Benattar
has such a take for a remake.

"We’ve got a story, we’ve got a director, we’ve got a
writer, J.T. Petty,
who did a couple of indie films," said Benattar. "He’s coming in and he wrote a
script. We’re sort of taking a look at in the world of Saw and Hostel, who are
the people who actually go watch these movies? So we’ve tied that in with [the
new] Faces of Death."

The
original "documentaries" were compilations of death scenes, so the idea of a
story is brand new. However, Benattar suggests that fans of the original will
recognize some elements of his remake. "We have a narrative story which the
original never had, and we also nod for the ‘fans.’ I use that word loosely.
Guys like me who watched it as a kid, who snuck away to go watch these things.
We have a few nods to those original films."
