Topic: A Serbian Film

I have just seen this movie and for the first time in a very long time, I REFUSE to review it. I only want to know what others who have seen this film thought about it. I do not wish anyone to see this, but if you have please comment. Everyone has the freedom and right to see whatever they want in life, but if you  know of this film and think you want to see it, trust me... you don't. Some things are best left unseen, even by curious monsters such as myself.

Re: A Serbian Film

I have seen this.  I was sickened and stunned. I was disgusted because yes I do know that things and people like this exist--but seriously- what the FUCK is wrong with the people who thought to make this movie ?

and yes I was compelled to watch the whole thing.  I will NEVER watch it again.  they crossed too many lines. It was senseless brutality and sexaul depravity at its lowest

Re: A Serbian Film

This movie is disgusting worst movie ever made no one should ever watch it. I regret watching seeing a baby and child being raped is just way too fucking much. I don't believe in censorship but this is taking that freedom way too far. The film makers/producers should be ashamed of themselves for making/releasing something like this.

Re: A Serbian Film

I have watched it but i'm not sure what to say other than its disgusting and i couldnt watch it ever again

Re: A Serbian Film

One viewing was more than enough. I get the "message" they were supposedly trying to convey. But the fact they actually felt the need to film their totally deranged and ill conceived "artistic ideology" shows me that I for once in my life would like some monsters to stay hidden in the dark. I will not watch this again. It isn't horror, it isn't porn, it isn't even entertainment or art. It is simply a monster trying to justify his actions and those like him.

Re: A Serbian Film

personally, i consider myself VERY lucky! i was interrupted half way through this and never went back to it when i found out the specific nature of the film.

just because you can make something.........doesn't necessarily mean you should!

Re: A Serbian Film

A Serbian Film - The feel good, family film for Christian minded, wholesome people to enjoy with children of all ages. DO NOT EVER WATCH THIS FILM. IF YOU FIND COPIES, BURN THEM FOR ME.

Re: A Serbian Film

Be glad if didnt see the ending it got worse and worse.

But I HAD to see the ending -hoping that it wouldnt turn out the way I was predicting. that perhaps he would have stopped himself and realized before it was too late...   

But I was right. and I regret not turning it off and believing it ended the way I hoped.

Re: A Serbian Film

I need to brainwash myself with about 50 back to back Disney films now. And I thought Disney was evil

Re: A Serbian Film

I liked the film. It was sick and disturbing but at the same time it was well made. BTW I still think the AU trilogy is more disturbing since it's more realistic. Just my opinion.

Re: A Serbian Film

Suspiria, I hear ya...  ive seen alot . from extreme S&M porn to so called snuff.  So this film wasnt showing me anything I hadnt seen before.   


But it was the scenes with the children that disturbed me.  That made me feel disgusted with the film as a whole and the mentality behind it all

Re: A Serbian Film

Interesting view points and controversy about the content of this film, considering this is a horror 'site/community. I have in the past enjoyed watching films that have made me want to turn away from certain acts of depravity. In some ways that's what horror is, but not always. Seems to me that this may be the case with this film. I have been very curious after reading reviews and was hoping to watch it. Not so sure about watching it anymore though??  Mostly because of the child rape scenes! That vision alone would be difficult to erase I'm sure of, and not sure if I would want that seed planted.

Re: A Serbian Film

Just a friendly reminder.
No personal attacks or insults.
Feel free to disagree about the movie but don't turn it into a flame war.
If you can't disagree politely then move along to a different site where they will tolerate that sort of behavior.

This is a community not a trollfest.

Re: A Serbian Film

Just a reminder: Moderators don't always share the sense of humor that forum members do and therefore shouldn't randomly delete comments posted. Even if it is about stereotypes people have about inbreeding in the southern united states. Kick me off when someone gets angry. Until then don't censor my musings, meanderings, dark humor, or attempt to understand the social dynamic between myself and other members here.

Sincerely,

Someone who knows the definition and differences between "moderator" and "censor"

Re: A Serbian Film

Fine repost your "humorous" comment  and when the flame war starts we'll discuss it then.

Re: A Serbian Film

The moment has passed. Enjoy your powers of censorship. Petty as they may be.

Re: A Serbian Film

I don't even want to know what was said. If it was about me I'm glad it was deleted because there would have been a flame war. I don't come on this site to take shit from people who are thousands of miles away. I come on here to discuss horror. Which is exactly what I was trying to do. If someone has a problem with me send a PM. No need to trash up the forum.

Re: A Serbian Film

Listening to the awesome soundtrack song will be the closest thing i do to watching this movie. I've seen the trailer and the cinematography and editing looks top notch, but not something im curious in watching or that I would enjoy in the slightest.

Re: A Serbian Film

Okay, so, I decided to go ahead and look up a review of this film.  Now, at first -- going mainly by the comments in this thread -- I was under the assumption it was a documentary.  But now I see (I think) that it's actually a fictional movie?  As in, a made up story with actors playing roles?

I ask this because I want to be sure, but I absolutely do not want to watch it to find out.  The fact that it depicts a child being raped alone is enough for me to condemn it sight unseen.  But what I'm concerned about is whether or not the child rape is shown graphically -- as in, actually pornographic, like a Baise Moi or 9 Songs, depicting actual on-screen sex.  Because seriously, if it IS a work of fiction and it shows explicit sex with a child...somehow I think that would piss me off even more than if it were a documentary with the real thing.

The very thought of this alone makes me shudder.  But I've got to know now if this is "just a movie" or a real life documentary.

Re: A Serbian Film

Hey I hear that Gardenofstone kid did a review on this movie...oh wait, that's me!!!  This movie had potential but given the circumstances it's been banned at festivals and the specific content, it's to me, torture porn's shining star.  It's shocking for the sake of shock.  The political motives behind it.....I don't believe.  I would never watch this again or recommend it.  I never once was grossed out as everything that happened in the movie could be used properly in other movies.

Re: A Serbian Film

Um yeah I will not see this. Thanks for the warnings guys. I bet it is probably banned in Australia if it is as bad as described.

There is a point at which something is no longer 'art' of any form and it becomes just trash. This sounds like it is just trash.

hmm true but when you say you like a film like this, then people will be like 'what??'. I get that all the time for movies even like American Psycho etc. Just stay calm and don't take it too personal.

Okay, so, even though you didn't specifically answer my question, I take this to mean it's NOT a documentary, but a work of pure fiction which features no explicit sex with a child.

Thank God.  I'll still never watch it, though.

Re: A Serbian Film

I never said that.....read my review as there is brand new born baby fucking and the guy rapes his 8 year old son.  Blood everywhere.  It's an actual movie.  No actual children were raped during the making of it, but if I were a parent, I wouldn't sign off to let my kid be in that position.

Re: A Serbian Film

suspiria states in another thread:
'All of the post on this page just made me realize that the makers of A Serbian Film have accomplished their goal. Which was to disturb and sicken. A job well done if you ask me.'

yes. I think this statement applies to this thread as well LOL

I've seen the film twice and will probably come around to it again at some point.
I don't think there should be any censorship when it comes to someone's artictic vision no matter how warped or depraved it may seem as long as noone was harmed in the making of it - and for this fact alone I applaud it.  What you see is horrific and the outcome is horrific - it's a penultimate horror film IMO.  I don't like my movies safe - and there is nothing safe in this film and that's why I give it a certain amount of respect.
