invaderpichu: What do you think of the August Underground series?
While it is quite strong stuff, and difficult to watch, I can’t deny that there is an amount of artistic merit to it, because they present footage that very strongly sells the story they are trying to tell. They also succeed in making the viewer very, very uncomfortable with the images they’re seeing, which—by all accounts—is a success, given this particular subgenre of horror.
Much like films such as Guinea Pig’s The Flower of Flesh and Blood (1985), it is not something that I would seek out in order to be entertained. It is depravity for the sake of depravity. It is more something fully intended to shock and disturb, and to test the limits of how far the viewer is willing to go along with the situation unfolding before them.
It is certainly not for the faint of heart, or weak of stomach. However, for anyone wishing to test themselves, the third film in the series, August Underground’s Penance (2007), is up in full on Youtube.

Why yes, it is! :D
It isn’t on the same level as some of Cohen’s other work, but I still really enjoy it, and Michael Moriarty is good in pretty much everything he does.
