Retro Poster: "Snuff" (1976)

A fun and interesting poster made for a pretty crappy movie, "Snuff" doesn't have much going for it except for the buzz surrounding the ending. The whole movie follows a sadistic biker gang around as they kill people on camera. Marketed as if it were an actual snuff film, the notorious "tacked on" ending caused quite a stir in the 70's for featuring a supposedly "real" murder involving a female being butchered by the film crew. The film distributors even hired fake protestors to picket theaters in an effort to play up the snuff film urban legend. Unfortunately, the scene does not hold up in today's special effects crazed world, but at least we can still get a chuckle from the film's tagline: "The film that could only be made in South America... where life is CHEAP!" Heartwarming and sure to bring a smile to even the most cynical curmudgeon's face, don't ya think?
