Editorial Reviews

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. 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".

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

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.

Saw the documentary after having visited high security prisons in Israel and I spoke with some of the terrorists who are also depicted in the documentary. The video pulls no punches and it highlights what appears to be an intractable problem with religious indoctrination driving most of the violence, though the politically correct media and high profile politicians dance around the possibility that Islam has a problem and that it is not an isolated one.
One of the Palestinians interviewed in the video gives all kinds of excuses about their youth lacking a father figure and blaming Israel for it, but that is pure bull. Various factions i.e. Al Fatah and Hamas have even tried to kill each other..nice father figure conflict...of course in everything Israel is at fault. The reality shown in the video is pretty clear. Israel is a democracy with the level of freedom that is despised by those in power across the border. It also does a good job showing how women fare in the Palestinian areas when compared to Israel.
