So today i came upon a story from Russia about three young men who murdered 21+ people and videotaped/photographed their entire killing spree. One incident involving a 47 year old man named Sergei Yatzenko, caught my attention. It was heralded as one of the first “true” snuff films. Being the type of person who prides herself with having an iron stomach (and an unhealthy obsession with crime and death) I decided to look up and watch this film. Within the first 30 seconds of the footage, i realized that my previous affliction for the noir had been hastily cast aside as i stared dumbfounded at the screen. The footage was shaky, but the violance was clear. 45 seconds in i realized that the sound was not turned on, and i restarted the video to get the full effect. BAD IDEA. Let me just say this; to desensitize yourself from any given situation involving violence is not very hard in this day and age, however, when the sounds of gurgling death and pleas for humanity is mixed in with laughter, dehumanizing is almost impossible. Usually i would happily direct everyone to something gross i find on the net i.e 2girls1cup, tubgirl,etc. but in this case I’m going to make you work for it as i did. This will give you the chance to read the story and decide for yourselves whether or not you want to see this for yourself. The link to the story is here:

from there you should be able to Google the name and find it as easily as i did.
