Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A riveting, jaw-dropping view of America's white supremacy movement. Rare archival footage, darkly humorous interviews, and their own promotional materials bring to light the inner workings of the Ku Klux Klan, the American Nazi Party, the Aryan Nation, The Order and other radical right groups. With a folksy, matter-of-fact certainty, the men and women here speak of imminent race wars, Armageddon, theHolocaust "hoax", interracial breeding, the Christian Identity faith, the hordes of foreign troops poised to attack America, and "ZOG" - the Zion Occupation Government. In the wake of Oklahoma City, it's clear the radical right are not the patriotic, bedrock Americans they claim to be, nor harmless in their lunacies either. Controversial and timely, Blood in the Face reveals a dark and dangerous side of America.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Review

Truly bizarre! Without a zombie in sight, this is the best horror film in years. --Austin Chronicle

The filmmakers use no voice-over narration. They allow people and events to speak for themselves. Blood in the Face is first-rate journalism. --NY Times

The scariest movie of the year! --New York Daily News

This is an interesting and worthwhile video to see. The core issue comes during one of the interviews, when a grandfatherly man tells the interviewer that while he knows the filmmakers are using and making fun of them, they are also using the filmmakers to get their message out. Some of the characters in the film are nothing more than silly, such as the adolescents dressing up in SS uniforms, calling themselves the "Action group", and declaring that they are ready for anything. Others are more serious: true believers who are not just playing a role, but see themselves as activists for the White race. All in all, it gives everyone something to think about, from the screaming liberal, to the disaffected White man or woman looking for a connection.

4.0 out of 5 stars In their own words August 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
From the "grand old man" George Lincoln Rockwell to today's wanna-be Stormtroopers, the militant fringe is exposed in their own words. Seething with hate, and ready for an excuse to launch a "rahowa" (Racial Holy War). This film is as disturbing as it is necessary to watch. If you can find it, watch the even earlier documentary "California Reich" to see this madness in it's incubation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The banality! The banality! June 10, 2008
Format:DVD
In "Heart of Darkness," Joseph Conrad's character Kurtz's famous dying words are "The horror! The horror!" Kurtz has looked into the face of evil, and the experience was so explosive that it destroyed him.

Conrad's characterization of evil as a mysterious, implacable, overwhelming, consciously malevolent "heart of darkness" is one that most of us resonate with. But as philosopher Hannah Arendt pointed out in the early 1960s when covering the trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann, evil can also be "banal." Part of what she meant is the process that occurs when people fail to think or judge rationally, and so just accept as "normal" certain kinds of behavior that critical reflection would spot as wicked. But in using the word "banal," Arendt also wanted to de-melodramatize evil. Evil actions are more often sordid and grimy, based on ignorance and stereotypes, than diabolically clever.

"Blood in the Face" (which takes its title from the racist myth that only Aryans have moral sensibilities and are capable of blushing) is a perfect example of the banality of evil in both senses. Filmed at a Michigan gathering of Nazis, KKKers, and Christian Identity loyalists, the film exposes the sheer stupidity, paranoia, and incoherence of the True Believers.

Perhaps nowhere is the pathetic nature of it all better captured than in the description of George Lincoln Rockwell's tawdry murder at a laundromat.

I first heard of this title back in the 80's when a documentary about this phenomenon of hate was shown on PBS.
As someone intrigued by what makes humans tick, why they express such hate for one another primarily due to skin color, and how they subsequently feel compelled to act out that hate in most barbaric and buffoonish ways, I felt the urge to buy the book and then see the dvd.
Some other reviewer felt disappointed with the production, etc. But let's not be distracted by the surface of this product. Instead, concentrate on what it shows about the visceral nature of racial hatred in this country and how it poisons the minds of children and future generations.
I highly recommend this product, especially because you get to hear the words from the hate and fear mongers themselves rather than just a scholarly presentation of this dysfunction; an illness that potentially lies within all of us humans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Early Moore April 28, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This film is from the 80s - not the Michael Moore we know today. It's worth a watch, but nothing to write home about.

Format:DVD
At first viewing this movie made me angry at the blind stupidity and unchangeable ignorance of the small group of white supremacists interviewed. That anger soon gave way to amusement as they spewed forth their twisted and ridiculously illogical form of Christianity/racialism. Ultimately though, that humor gave way to sadness. I started to feel sorry for these deluded bumpkins and their misguided cause. Their ignorance was disheartening as was their evil. Imagine an aging group of poorly educated and heavily armed people clinging desperately to a bankrupt philosophy based only on what they've read rather than what they've encountered. Now imagine them being informed by some kind of ridiculous messianic mission involving saving the white race and their country. Not so funny now, is it? Its like watching 65 year old Star Wars geeks sitting in the basement waving their home made light sabers waiting for the return of Darth Vader. Just sad, except these geeks are willing to commit acts of real violence in the name of their cause. The movie lets the kooks speak for themselves with no narration and little intervention from the film makers other than editing. You hear very few of the interviewers questions.
