Denmark filmmaker, Kasper Juhl, delivers this sick punch in the guts on the underground indie scene. Itís a first person shot snuff-style movie filmed in black and white in the style of August Underground. Sunken Danish is said to be a prequel to Juhl's similarly shot film, Monstrosity, but Sunken is definitely the superior of the two in terms of the sheer ugly and dirty depraved acts featured in it.

Itís not an original idea to shoot in first person with a shaky camera and do pretend snuff. It has been done to death. Sunken Danish fortunately has enough semi-creative angles to make it work moderately, in some cases, and more effectively in others. The voices of the characters in this are disguised as if they are in a real snuff film and don't want people recognizing them. The film is shot in Danish with English subtitles, and its main downfall is that most scenes are way too dark to see. They do fortunately make sure all the gore is seen crystal clear but having the movie filmed in black and white and then having it shot so dark on top of that makes it tough.

There are some memorable scenes of carnage here, and some very uncomfortable stuff, particularly a scene involving the extraction of a fetus from a woman's stomach, while the father looks on. To take it even further, the baby is then decapitated. Itís obvious to the viewer that the baby is fake, and a doll is used, since you hear the saw cutting through the hard plastic. We get a scene of necrophilia, lots of torture and humiliation, and the two characters -- one played by director Juhl -- occasionally act like juvenile buffoons as they get off on torturing their victims, all the while ĎGod Bless Denmarkí is spray painted on the wall in the background, in one particular scene.

Iím uncertain if Sunken Danish is a must have item in your collection but itís definitely one of the rarer in this spectrum of underground faux-snuff films. Juhl, being a jack-of-all-trades (musician, artist, director, etcetera), definitely has the chops and talent to take his films further. He has also done Madness of Many, which is more of an artistic philosophical-style horror/gore film. Itís something similar to Lucifer Valentine's work, as there is a lot of torture and vomit play featured, plus we get the main female lead musing about her life.

If you can find it, Sunken Danish is definitely worth checking out but I'm pretty sure itís sold out. Check out Hellbound Productions on Facebook, as Kasper Juhl is working on some new projects, such as The Prophets of Ignorance and Your Flesh, Your Curse which is a follow up to Madness of Many. Thanks to Joey Caps of Caps Collective Entertainment for sending this along.
