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.

" A potentially good thriller about snuff is ruined by a central weak performance by Nicolas Cage who overact enormously especially when he sees the film and can't sell the fact that what he sees is a "fake snuff" film (even if it is meant to be real). Joel Schumacher also is so intergerated into the Hollywood system that he can't manage to make the movie gritty or realistic enough and the film come across as too glossy and staged for it's screen material. The build-up of the story also works nic"
