So the awesome indie distro label Toxic Filth Video ran by Jason Toth has collaborated with Russian gore director Alex Wesley (Alexander Sharoglazov) who is responsible for such films as Tumors and Zombie Infection. Wesley and his producer Phillip Brocklehurst have compiled and edited found footage from a twisted Slovakian TV show which depicted different scenarios of real life oddities, interviews, galleries and pictures of death. The original creator of the film is Nikolai Yaropolk who released Traces of Gore originally in 2000. After its initial release it slipped into obscurity only to resurface again in the bowels of the Toxic Filth Video cesspool of available titles. 

Traces of Gore has been revamped by Wesley and crew with some added sequences and enhancements for your viewing displeasure. We get Canadian war punk Yan Kaos (maker of Necromance: A Love Story, Meat Butcher Baby) screeching hardcore punk sounds on the musical score. They have added in cool segments with a character by the name of Dr. Dobrojir Ratibor introducing each segment as the film progresses through the various categories of deathly throes. We get different segments and categories of death nuances thrown at us. We get a tour of an oddity and tumor exhibit, segments on death by drug abuse, profiles and confessions of killers and hit men and much more to wet your morbid palate. The native tongue of the dialogue is Russian but there has been English subtitles placed in particular scenes.

Personally I've watched very few shockumentaries but out of my favorites I would say close to the top of those is the Traces of Death series because they are very fast paced and contain some very gruesome real death footage and cruelty. Traces of Gore sits more on the depressing, gloomy, dark and atmospheric side of the Shockumentary. We get a lot of still images, confessions, galleries of death and it all creeps along with dark vigor. 

The narrator of the film goes by the name Gore Von Allin but it’s actually director Alex Wesley, dropping some scary and trippy monster vox narration. If anyone is familiar with gore movie collectors and Facebook gore/splatter pages then you might have heard the name Hardgore Core. Harry Collins, the man behind the ski mask gore movie reviews on YouTube also makes an appearance as a pseudo hitman in an introduction to the hired killers’ footage in Traces of Gore. A second instalment and a special Traces of Gore of  are planned for the future through Toxic Filth Video. Tap that vein, heat up that spoon and inject some depressing filth into your life -- some Toxic Filth.
