A Serbian Film
It seems the darker, more depraved a film is, the more we genre fanatics love to discuss it. How often do we juggle dialogue about average horror films? It happens plenty, and it’s not exactly atypical, but there’re pictures that are far darker works that call our names on a much more frequent basis.
For those of you upset that A Serbian Film hit Blu-ray and DVD earlier this year in an edited down version, we've got an explanation and even some good news for you. Read on, sickos!

Here we go, folks. A real Dinner for Fiends. No scheduling conflicts. No bird attacks. The usual suspects (Creepy, Buz, Foy, Fini, Kasch) have finally all assembled for a new episode. You would think with only two new wide release horror movies this past month, there wouldn’t be that much to talk about; yet, somehow we jam packed it to feature length.
What more can be said about A Serbian Film? The flick has been referred to as "relentlessly horrifying" and "child pornography". Our take? It's all special effects, people. Get a grip. Anyway, you'll be able to make up your own mind when this year's most controversial film comes home.
Those living in the Boston area are (hopefully) aware of the wonderful programming supplied by the Coolidge Corner Theater. Last year they gave residents a chance to catch The Human Centipede on the big screen, and now they're looking to step it up a notch with midnight screenings of A Serbian Film in an NC-17, 35 mm version. And it's happening this weekend!
Ring the dinner bell because Dinner For Fiends is back for a jam-packed feature length episode filled with everything from thoughtful to heated discussion.
Since the film first burst forth onto the scene there's been a ton on controversy surrounding A Serbian Film. In a couple of months you'll be able to judge it for yourself as the flick smashes into the States. From the Press Release
And the little film designed to shock, offend, put off, and disgust its viewers, A Serbian Film has caused a hell of a lot of commotion at the Sitges Film Festival in Barcelona when it screened there. Hold on to your asses, folks!
