A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff is a unique indie-horror romp through two dimwitted brothers’ attempt to make a believable yet fake snuff film. Their plan requires that their star not be in on the fact it’s all just a movie, which leads to trouble when the captive damsel-in-distress turns into a femme fatale.
All in all, A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff succeeds at being both funny and thoroughly entertaining. It runs a little long, and there are moments where the auteur-style reached for by director Altieri get in the way of some seriousness that breaks up the humor. That said, The Butcher Brothers have crafted something a little bit Reservoir Dogs, a little bit Bloody Pit of Horror, and a little bit Buffalo ’66, all rolled into one—and if that mix doesn’t interest you, then I don’t know what will!
