Murder Collection V.1 (2009)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
09.04.10

Murder Collection V.1 (2009) My personal take on Toe Tag Pictures' repertoire has been made pretty clear in my past reviews of their movies so I don't see much need to reiterate on that, but after seeing "Maskhead" it was all down to "Murder Collection V.1" in order to call myself a Fred Vogel film completist (the satisfaction is... overwhelming...). So I checked out MC, with a moderate amount of intrigue which is what TT never fails at even if you don't think very highly of their work...

Pretty similar set-up as the "August Underground" series, only involving faux home-made death footage rather than the pseudo-snuff route. The "hook" is that all the simulated depictions of various murders shown through many different styles of cameras is based around a mysterious 'voice' belonging to the "collector" of all the videos. Inbetween some of the clips his distorted voice offers some philosophical insight into the appeal of watching scenes of real-life carnage for the sake of entertainment. I did not really find this "motive" for the film's content to be all that profound or detract from the "exploitive" factors... The death scenes themselves, ranging from robbery and kidnapping caught on security-cam, to an execution style beheading, and gang related hostage tape are interesting at times (namely, the ones I just mentioned), but most of the bits went on FAR too long. One scene shows a disgruntled boyfriend sitting in front of a TV monitor showing his wife having sex with another man. He spends nearly ten minutes talking about how they met until he gets up and we see him murder her on the hidden camera with, what looked like, an axe... Where the hell was he supposed to be? A closet? Plus, it barely took him any time at all to cut out her heart. This was one part, in particular, I could not for the life of me find "realistic"... Not to mention the autopsy segment which was excruciatingly drawn out and dull. The best scene, to me, was the chilling home-movie of a man forcing two bound boys in their underwear to dance with him. The ending of this clip was quite unexpected...

In all, "Murder Collection" follows Toe Tag's "unique" method of morbid fantasy voyeurism, though it's their least graphic film by far. People are calling it a modern "Mondo Film" which seems about right. Those were pretty boring too... MC will have Toe Tag fanatics creaming their shorts but I didn't find anything all that special about it...
