| Unwatchable
When I was a horror movie-obsessed teenager, I purchased an eight-hours' long VHS tape, consisting of Faces of Torture, Inhumanities, Death Scenes, Death Faces (IV), and Beyond Reality/ Death Faces IV, part 2. Having critiqued a couple of them here years ago, I thought I might watch the tape one last time and finish critiquing the remainder of the tape before setting it on fire.

Unwatchable, this has Mr. Satanic Bible himself, Anton LaVey, mumbling and stumbling his way through a variety of decades old still photos of suicides, crime scenes, and the like. A. McV. is usually at least charismatic and a good showman (if not a complete hack) but here he is blubbery and merely mumbling and slurring his way through the obvious narrative in mostly self-explanatory scenes of death and mayhem.

There might be a slight interest here for true-crime buffs, and to see footage of Ted Healy and some other 1930s Hollywood types, but all others will be either repelled, or bored to tears, because there is no way to make interesting a video showing still photographs for almost its entire run time.

This film is also known as Faces of Death VII, and a lot of the footage here was recycled (along with some other random stock footage) into another video in the 1990s, also titled Faces of Death 7, but using the Arabic number 7 in its title, instead of the Roman numeral VII, so, it's not confusing at all. Don't get tricked into watching this more than once, if at all.
