Product Description

Literally torn from the headlines: "a Martyr on the Loose"... The viewer is taken on a disturbing journey that few can comprehend - deep into the culture and psychopathology of suicide bombers - this century's latest warfare phenomenon! This feature documentary takes the audience on a disturbing journey deep into a culture that few can comprehend - that of suicide bombers. Filmmaker Pierre Rehov examines the phenomenon of suicide bombers through rare and never-before-seen interviews with actual family members of terrorists, the prisoners whose bombing attempts have been thwarted, and exclusive footage of a terror bomber as he prepares for a mission! This film provides a message of urgency for increasing our understanding of the psychopathological dynamics of these terrorist bombers. We finally gain insight to how these human bombs "tick". The DVD features include US Theatrical Trailer, Additional Scenes, Interactive Educational Tools, Exclusive Interviews with Survivors and Jailed Bombers.

Suicide Killers is a trip to the dark side. This is a place where one Palestinian bomber, checking his stock of guns and grenades as he prepares for his next mission, expresses the hope that his three young children will follow in his footsteps, while another says, "I will not regret it if (the target) is a nursery full of kids." Yet these extraordinary statements are only part of the tale told in Pierre Rehov's 80-minute film, which sheds light not only on terrorists but also on the others in their grim orbit. There are Israelis who survived attacks staged by Hamas; parents of bombers, some bewildered by their sons' deeds, others proud of them; and a few voices of reason, such as a Palestinian in Gaza who says, "You can't build a security (sic) life by blood." There are also scenes from a "summer camp" for kids where "martyr training" is conducted, and, most strikingly, multiple interviews with jailed bombers who failed at their appointed rounds, including a couple of women whose serenity, as Rehov puts it, is more disturbing than their desire to fight. Much of this isn't typical fly on the wall documentary stuff, but direct, intimate contact with the terrorists (including one whose cell wall is draped with a giant Minnie Mouse curtain), often featuring extreme close-ups of their eyes. Along the way, there's plenty of speculation about the motives that drive people to blow themselves up in the hope that they'll take dozens of victims, if not more, with them. One pundit suggests it's pure brainwashing, while another dismisses the bombings as a "cynical tactic… for political ends." Others posit the theory that the repressive separation of the sexes in strict Muslim society has so frustrated some men that they're willing to die young in order to reach paradise, where they'll be surrounded by 72 virgins. And, of course, there's virulent anti-Semitism, and hatred of Israel and its "brutal occupation" of Palestinian territory. At times, the terrorists' endless rhetoric comes off as posturing. But then you see the bloody results of their handiwork, and when you hear them proclaim their willingness, eagerness even, to get another chance to kill, you know they're deadly serious. The DVD features include additional scenes, further interviews, and more. --Sam Graham

It was directed and produced in a very intelligent way.

This is one of the illuminating things one learns watching this film: they are not hateful or perverted people, on the contrary, they are easy to love.

This is a very intimate account of aims and motivations of suicide bombers in their own words.

I am a consultant for security and counter terrorism issues. I watched "Suicide Killers" during the September 2006 International Counter Terrorism Conference. This is a very important documentary movie and I intend to use it as relevant training material within my professional security circles.

I recommend also to those who would like to try and comprehend with the suicide bombers phenomenon. It is a MUST!

Kudos to Pierre Rehov on such an outstanding movie! This is the story that the media has refused to tell us about suicide bombing. It is shocking to see what lies radical Islam teaches its folllowers about the west, about women and about Jews. Even more shocking was their prohibition against sex to young potential candidates for suicide bombing. It is amazing to see the way this prohibition is worked into motivate the followers to commit acts of terror. This film is a must see for any citizen of the free world who has a conscience.

For anyone who wonders what motivates the people behind suicide - or homicide - bombings, this film provides a look at the psychopathology of these men and women. In their own words, would-be bombers give riveting explanations into what drives them to sacrifice their lives and lives of countless innocent victims. Their answers will surprise you.

An important and timely look behind the all-too-frequent headlines, "Suicide Killers" is not to be missed.

This is a very intimate account of aims and motivations of suicide bombers in their own words. Overall, the producer manages to fade into the background and let the interviewed prisoners express their own belief that lead them to what they do. Still, some freudian nonsense and postmodernist narrative manages to creep in through the opinions of "experts": their guns are the phallic expression of their sexual frustration, the moment of suicide is the orgasmic passage to afterlife, women blow themselves up as a way of feminist revolt. Again and again I kept saying, "Cut the crap and let them talk!".

Also, I noticed some omissions in the English subtitles over Arabic interviews. For examples, one particularly young prisoner talks about his expectation of meeting the past prophets, saints and marrying 70+ virgins after he becomes a martyr. The subtitle omits the prophets and saints. There seems to be many other incorrect translations. One still gets the message, though.

For years now, sympathic voices have been explaining to the media, and the world, why troubled souls resort to killing themselves because they have no other means to further their cause.

Finally, Pierre Rehov goes into the prisons and interviews the suicide bombers who were apprehended before they were able to complete their mission. Finally, the world can hear first hand the motives behind the suicide bombings. But the world will only hear if they care enough to listen.

Once the world listens, it will know how to act... if it is not too late.

This was an amazing film that just left me breathless at the end. It gets into the minds of a lot of people who are in one way or another associated with suicide bombing missions, from the actual men and women who have attempted suicide bombing missions and those in training, to their victims, their families, their trainers, even children training for such missions. It is a must see for anyone interested in world politics, regardless of their politics.

For me, the most powerful parts of the film were the interviews with families who were proud of the "martyrs" in their family. To me, it demonstrated the insanity of the idea of suicide missions (not that I really needed that to be reinforced) while also showing the very real human suffering experienced by many of these people.

I'm sure many people will come away from this film with the feeling that we need to redouble our efforts to kill all Muslims before they can become terrorists and, in a way, I can see how they might feel that way, though I strongly and vehemently disagree. The people in this film are very determined and absolutely convinced that what they are doing is good and justified and convincing them otherwise is a very daunting task. However, we need to remember that the majority of Muslims do not think this way (regardless of what many people would lead us to believe) and, indeed, several Muslims and Palestinians interviewed for the film condemn the practice of suicide bombing. For me, the film just reaffirmed for me that we absolutely need to find a better way to address the rift between Muslim cultures and western civilization other than an endless, continuous cycle of violence.

A 'window' into the thoughts of those who kill indiscriminately in the name of their god, this is a well produced expose. The acts of violence are less portrayed while the convoluted reasoning of those who "do" these acts (or tried to) are on display in their myriad forms. This will give pause to any who believe you can reason with the hardcore members of Islamic terror groups. Their addiction to a twisted logic is so evident that one wonders how they will be stopped and perhaps they will only cease when all are dead or martyred. A must see for anyone who does not believe these extremists make up the worst threat to civilization since Hitler!
