A captivating read...Creation's most accomplished film publication so far. This study on the way death has been treated on film is cleverly structured, well researched and lucidly written. It comprehensively covers films made as fiction - e.g. "Peeping Tom", "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" - films purporting to be real - e.g. "Faces of Death" series - and material that is all too real, such as car-crashes, autopsy films and news footage. -- Shivers
A definitive study...thoroughly examining both traditions - mondo and snuff - and picking apart the myths surrounding the latter. -- Sight and Sound
The definitive guide to the history of snuff. -- Empire
Utterly unputdownable. -- Melody Maker
Well-researched and highly readable, Killing for Culture
is a must-have. -- Film Threat
