Bursting with outrageous characters and shocking situations... a candy-colored suicide bus to hell. -Mitch Davis, Fantasia Film Festival --Fantasia Film Festival

Product Description

US Blu-Ray/Region All pressing. During the final days of Slobodan Milosevic's Serbian rule, a young film student named Marko (Mihajlo Jovanovic) becomes desperate to make a feature film. Finally getting a job as an adult film director, he quickly runs afoul of the mob and needs to get out of town fast! Assembling a traveling "porno cabaret" with a group of misfits, Marko and his new friends ride though the quiet countryside in a beat up van performing live sex acts for peasants and farmers. But life is hard on the road, and they are barely making enough money to survive. Marko meets a shady snuff film producer who says they can make a lot more money shooting actual murders, theatrically "performed" on willing participants. This is one offer the struggling porno gang cannot refuse! Synapse Films is proud to present Mladen Djordjevic's controversial film, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A PORNO GANG. Not for the faint of heart or weak-minded, this critically acclaimed shocker is "bursting with outrageous characters and shocking situationsA- a candy-colored suicide bus to hell" (Mitch Davis, Fantasia Film Festival). Funny, gruesome, sexy and jaw-dropping adults-only entertainment!

4.0 out of 5 stars LIKE NOTHING THAT YOU HAVE EVER SEEN BEFORE September 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
You had better believe the hype on the sleeve as this brilliant film from Serbia crosses boundaries never before seen on film.The nudity and hardcore sex is unexciting due to the overweight and not good looking cast members involved. It must be the first time that beastiality is seen in a mainstream film.Horrors of graphic decapitations in the war scenes may make some viewers look away.There is plenty of humor in this very unusual film about a group of people making a porn film.I was tempted to give it a rating of 5 stars but there were some problems with the bluray disc. The controversial reversible sleeve cover is the same as the non -controversial one .It is said to be a SPECIAL EDITION....for what I do not know. There is a very dreary full length making of documentary and the deleted and extended scenes do not appear on the bluray despite being on the menu.I am waiting for a reply from the distributor regarding this. Worst of all are the English subtitles.In many scenes the subtitles are on the bottom of the screen and then revert to the top.Very annoying as it happens a lot in the early scenes.Your eyes can't keep up with them - one second they are on the bottom and a second later they are on the top then back to the bottom again.Also having white subtitles (they should be yellow) against a light background means that you can't always read them. Someone must be held responsible for this mess.

The Life and Death of a Porno Gang is an undeniably powerful, funny, and hard hitting film that is sure to shake people up quite a bit. It's one of the more surprising films I've seen this year, and, quite honestly, it's one that I think most definitely deserves to be seen. It was made at about the same time as A Serbian Film was and is often compared to it. Honestly, I think the two films are actually very comparable in a lot of ways and they both are essentially saying the same thing, but they both have very different approaches. Lets get what they have in common out of the way first. They are both about pornography and snuff films. They are both are pessimistic and angry films. Both films have an industrial tone and music score and they both feature obscene content. Both of the films explore human corruption. The most important thing that they have in common, however, is that they both have a passionate filmmaker character in them that is willing to transgress morality for the sake of artistic freedom of expression. That's where the comparisons end, however, and this is when it gets tricky to explore the film. The Life and Death of a Porno Gang and A Serbian Film are both comedies and dramas, but the former is more of a comedy while the latter is a drama. Comparing these two films, to me, is as difficult as comparing Pink Flamingos to Funny Games. Pink Flamingos and Funny Games are both films that are, in my opinion, equally detestable and were made by filmmakers who set out to make the worst film that they could possibly make. Both films were made out of passion, the former out of rebellion and the latter as a reaction. John Waters set out to entertain and shock, however, while Michael Haneke set out to horrify and disturb. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre... December 20, 2012
By Andria
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had heard that Life and Death of a Porno Gang was as disturbing and controversial as a Serbian Film, except there was more humor and the characters were more likable and relatable. After watching it, I disagree. I did not find the characters relatable and found the movie to be pretty boring overall. I sympathized more with the characters in a Serbian Film, and I thought a Serbian Film was better paced and more sinister. As far as disturbing and controverisal...yes there is homosexual sex but that's barely of note as far as controversy; I've seen that in a mainstream drama and in the Spartacus series. The only thing I found notably unsettling was a very jarring decapitation scene, which was a video within the movie and did not involve any of the characters. I can't say anything very good about the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Gang has Gory secrets to open up your soul... November 20, 2012
By A. Copp
Format:DVD
A lot of ink has been spilled comparing LIFE AND DEATH OF A PORNO GANG to the "other" snuff film themed horror from Serbia "A SERBIAN FILM". While thematically they share some similar ground, both films are about filmmakers and or/actors being pushed economically into do snuff as a way to make a living. But while 'A SERBIAN FILM" exists soul;y for the filmmakers to rape you in your eye sockets until you have seen things you will never forget, no matter how hard you try. PORNO GANG is trying a different approach by giving us interesting characters who learn quickly to care about. The political aspersions of the film are clear from the opening moments and actually drive the narrative forward once again unlike 'A SERBIAN FILM" which plays lip service to the politics of the region as is that is the reason for the films existence. yet it honestly never is, that film never transcended it's brutality and gore for the same of being that way. PORNO GANG, though only likely less extreme (so you get your gang rapes, heads mashed with hammers, gutting, wrist slashing and decapitation as well as donkey scene better left to you imagination) still sticks to your ribs because the violence is happening or being perpetrated by people we have grown to love.
