Editorial Reviews

In the spring of 2004 in eastern Maryland, 19-year-old Christopher Damsel and three accomplices (girlfriend Kelly Hauge and friends Rod Heckles and William Goddard), embarked on a five-day rampage of violence and rebellion which Damsel, the architect and ringleader, called a ."Deathography".

During the five days, the gang (calling themselves "Kamikazes") videotaped every moment and under Damsel's unyielding command, participated in a series of brutal crimes that shattered a community and brought new meaning to the term "teen violence".

I'll start this review by saying that I watched this upon recommendation from a friend of mine- and I was very pleasantly surprised! I watched the trailer online and didn't see much other information on the web, but my curiosity was piqued. Oh, and FIRST TO POST A REVIEW :)!! Sorry, I had to...

Kamikazes a Deathography approaches the topic of teen violence in such an intimate way that you can't help but become involved in these characters or the events that unfold. This indie flick revolves around four teens that plan to commit suicide in five days, and each day leading up to the fifth, they go out and do something horrible. This movie is not filmed like any other movie with fancy angles, lighting, or even people to clean the lens before a take. It's shot by the actors, and skews the viewer to their perspective quite effectively. Think Columbine meets the Blair Witch Project, and you've got a pretty good idea of what this will look like. The thing is, no matter how violent or disturbing this film gets (and it does get disturbing), you simply can't look away, it's riveting. Every aspect of it is real, and because of that you end up with a truly effective and frightening movie. They come across as real kids with real-life issues, and yet clearly there's something wrong with them. It's not something on the surface that you can see, but as you get to know the teens, you empathize with them almost as much as you revile them. You almost believe, and I think the characters do too, that this "deathography" is some kind of joke, until things start to go horribly wrong as they each spiral into darkness.

This film is not without its flaws. In the beginning, there's text for the viewer to read and I wish the font had been just a bit bigger as I found myself squinting to read...

When I was viewing this film I couldn't help think about how teens get so far away from their parents and neither parents or teens talk any more. It's all texting, email, internet, blogs, etc. No real face to face communication any more. That's what this film says to parents and teens for me... TALK TO EACH OTHER.

This can happen in your neighborhood or your own home. It is violent, but its real. No cotton candy script here. These kids are incredible actors. You are completely drawn into the "4th Wall" as a witness to their 5-day ordeal. I came away with a bit of shock and disbelief in some ways, but with a better understanding of what needs to take place so this won't happen to your kids, or mine.

The film is engaging through great direction, score and editing. It's done in a style that is more like a documentary than a cinema-graphic, scripted film with Hollywood camera angles and cool graphics. This film is an accounting of these kids' lives and what brought them to this point in this film. Please see this film, especially if you have teens.
