Editorial Reviews

When cult-favorite horror filmmaker JT Petty ventures into the dark world
of underground horror, things don t exactly go as planned. As he examines the comparison between filmmaking and voyeurism within the horror genre, he uncovers a collective of filmmakers, deviants, and self-professed possible murderers. The most notorious underground film series he
discovers is called S&MAN, produced by the unassuming and creepy
Eric Rost. The more Petty digs into his subject, the more Eric withdraws, claiming a desire to protect his "creative vision." But Petty begins to suspect that the real reason may be that Eric's "actors" are in fact "victims," placing the filmmaker in dangerous territory and making S&MAN the most unsettling horror experience in years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and well done February 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
*Possible Spoilers* I love this movie! The director also did "The Burrowers," but this is a totally different kind of movie. I knew this guy was an original when I saw his first (very experimental) film, "Soft For Digging." But this was an unexpected delight. It's a horror movie inside a documentary. Most of the documentary bits are real. JT, the director, interviews actual authors, psychologists, and filmmakers. He talks to the Toe Tag Pictures folks (You know, August Underground and so on) and Bill Zebbub. Let's back up a sec. If you don't know August Underground or Bill Zebbub, if you can't identify Debby D on sight, you probably won't get this movie, so stop right here. Anyway, JT starts out at a horror convention, interviewing all these real people. These are straight-up interviews with underground horror film people. But in the middle of all of this, he interviews a filmmaker named "Eric," who makes a series of films called S&Man. (That's "Sandman," by the way, not "S and M Man." Eric is quite pissy about this distinction.) Eric is a cute, chubby, sweetfaced fanboy. And he appears to be stalking and killing women for real. The more JT focuses on him, the more unsettling things get. Some reviewers have griped that they saw the twist coming. There IS no twist, Oh Dipstick Reviewers. You're supposed to believe that Eric is a killer from the first time you see him. He confesses to murder about two dozen times during the film, but no one wants to believe him. The ultimate question this film raises is voiced by the author of "Men, Women, and Chain Saws." She comments (and I'm paraphrasing) "if you watch hyper-violent movies all the time, can you even recognize the real thing when you see it?" Damn good question. I loved this sly, evil bit of filmmaking, and I can't wait to see more from this director!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shocking but somewhat informative. June 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
S&Man is a horror movie within a documentary. The commentary from the underground filmmakers is actually very interesting; they explain why they make these films and also talk about the specific genres they explore. Throughout the film, you'll also see clips from movies like Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and the August Underground series. The S&Man series is introduced within the film as they interview Eric, the creator of the series. He records himself as he stalks women then murders them on camera. His overall characteristics and actions are extremely creepy and add some tension to the movie. The movie is extremely graphic and realistic; without spoiling much, the film includes vomiting, stabbings, neck slices and nudity throughout.

Overall, the film's documentary is very interesting and I think anyone interested in horror or film in general will enjoy it. The film is violent so be prepared and remember that it's all fake; I was even a bit put off by the extreme violence but got through to the (kind of) twist ending. As of 6/11/12, the film is available on Netflix Instant streaming.

Loved it! Hard to describe without giving too much away so I'm dropping the SPOILER ALERT in case you'd rather have it unfold organically. If not... keep reading.

S&Man draws the horror film aficionado in by splicing together various out takes and interviews including with various film makers including the infamous August Underground players. It humanizes the producers of these kinds of snuff films rather than demonizing them. We see them peddling their "art" at underground festivals and selling their cheesy cinematic explorations to an even more deranged group of people... the viewers. In doing so this film makes you keenly aware you are among the dweebs buying this stuff. After all, you're here aren't you, and you're still watching? We meet a ragtag motley cast of characters who are involved in the making, acting, directing, producing and purchasing the kinds of films most people cannot stomach. Some are a bit more pathetic than others but for the most part they are a lovable bunch. It was great to hear from the Scream Queens of horror and the splicing of a psychologist perspective regarding cameras perspective is a nice touch. Out of all the characters we meet in this "documentary," however, perhaps the least interesting and worst filmmaker of all us in fact, a real serial killer. His films are the least colorful and flamboyant, precisely because real death and murder is nowhere need as sensational as we have come to expect as viewers. It's not until the end that our suspicions are confirmed and the nauseating feeling of befriending a deranged lunatic has already sunk his teeth into our psyche. I found this to be a very interesting movie on a whole host of levels. Not the least of which was the question: When you watch enough death, carnage, and mayhem for entertainment, does real death loose its power? What's more real? For the Sandman, his victims know the answer first hand. Cool movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars OH THE HUMANITY! November 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Just a documentary about the lowest form of HORROR FILM where a movie producer tries to make the story look like a real snuff film. I like the horror genre of movie but I don't care for torture as the implement of the scare tactic. I prefer the spooky haunting type of story that simply puts a "chill" in the air and unnerves you. Realistic murder turns me off and so this documentary was of no interest to me.
