After seeing it, I was literally sick and I wished that I hadn't. The image had burned itself onto my brain

I remember reading in the local news maybe a week ago that a Toronto woman had been found in a ravine in Penn., in bondage gear, and was suspected of being killed in a snuff film.
I'll try to find the link.

I ran across this, too. This is what I remember about it:
After she was found, the police tracked down the video guy she had a contract with. The police obtained a copy of the contract. According to the article I read, snuff films were specified as part of the contract. The video guy and his 29 year old assistant(?) have both been charged.

Whether or not snuff films exist or have ever existed largely depends upon what your definition of a "Snuff Film" is.
If a video of a legit murder is made specifically for profit to be sold (a la 9mm), I would say that the probabilty of this is low if existent at all. However it would not surprise me at all if videos have been made by certain serial killers as a personal record. (Jeffrey Dahmer DID take polaroids...)
As far as being able to purchase them via some underground porno market...pure BS.
I won't watch faces of death, and have left a party because a friend of mine put it on. There is no chance I'll ever watch, or even try to find, snuff films.

Apparently it is legal to own snuff movies only illegal to make them of course.

Too bad drug users don't have these same rights. ::spits::
Well, here in Illinois, it was illegal for a minor to purchase nicotine, it was illegal for someone else to purchase nicotine for a miner, but it was legal for a minor to possess nicotine. They changed that a few years ago, but still, why do laws allow you to keep something illegal as long as you're not buying or making it? At some point in time you had to have bought it, or else you stole it, which is illegal as well...

Back on topic: Does anyone feel that there is a high likelyhood that any potential "snuff industry" would exist within the same sphere of operation as child pornography? Anytime someone is busted for kiddy porn the news mentions an undefined "network" that the individual belongs too, but almost always you see a single person being arrested, not the operators of the vast network. Tieing into another topic on the board (missing persons) does anyone believe that the missing persons, child pornography, snuff films conspiracies are one and the same? That's certainly the outlook that I have on it. Once an adult or child is off the radar so to speak, who knows what happens to them? I'd love to hear other thoughts.

Some years ago (I think it was early 80's) my brother appeared with some horror videos he had borrowed. Most were just copies of existig movies (original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, American Werewolf etc). There was one cannibal one (either Ferox or Holcaust - they're the only names I remember) which looked very real. I remember saying then that I thought it was a snuff film. For years it was believed to be one, but recently it was debunked.
Yes, I believe they exist. If you realise that 'Faces of Death' and the 'Executions' movies are legal, you can imagine the depth of depravity some people will sink to in order to turn a profit.
