A private investigator played by Nicolas Cage, is hired by a rich man to figure out whether a snuff film is real or not.

Right from the get-go, 8mm shows the audience what they're in for, as Tom (Cage) makes his way over to a secluded mansion, to investigate who is responsible for the making of a "snuff" film, and whether it's authentic. For those not familiar with the word "snuff";... read more

There was something really appealing about this flick. I mean, it was a dark thriller dealing with snuff movies, directed by Joel Schumacher, starring Nicolas Cage and Joaquin Phoenix. It really seemed that they have gathered all the necessary ingredients to make a decent flick. Unfortunately, the whole thing was pretty disappointing. Seriously, I gave this movie a fair shot and even watched it tw... read more

Tom Welles, private eye, is hired by a wealthy widow, whose well-known husband passed away recently. She has found a reel of S8-film in a safe. On the film is a cruel slaughtering of a young girl, who obviously does not pretend or act: A snuff-movie. Welles takes up investigation, which leads him to the girl's mother and from there to Hollywood, into the office of a porn flick producer. Welles' rising obsession to solve the case also carries him away from his wife and new-born daughter. But when finally names are at hand, Welles suddenly finds himself on ice much thinner than he planned.

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary 2020 (149 movies items)

"16.10. 2020 An old widow hires a private detective to find out the truth behind the disturbing film she found from her husband's collection. The film seems to depict a brutal murder of a young woman and the private detective ends up in all sorts of troubles while exploring the darkest side of humanity. Schumacher's thriller has many good elements but it feels unbalanced and somehow aimless. Near the end the film turns into a generic vigilante film but the atmosphere is still mostly quite captiv"

" Date: 4/11/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime (Rental) Re-Watch Note: An underrated movie that still holds up after 20 years later. I love the dark, gritty and realistic atmosphere that this movie was because it really captures the tone and mood of the story. Not to mention, I have always been into urban legends like snuff films and underground pornography. I found myself being hooked into the dark imagery that this movie has. I highly recommend this film."
