A Serbian Film (Српски филм / Srpski film in Serbian) is a 2010 Serbian exploitation horror film, produced and directed by Srđan Spasojević and co-written by Spasojević with Aleksandar Radivojević. The movie stars Serbian actors Srđan Todorović and Sergej Trifunović.

Plot

In Serbia, the retired porn star Milos is married with his beloved wife Marija and they have a little son, Peter, who is their pride and joy. The family is facing financial difficulties, but out of the blue, Milos is contacted by the porn actress Lejla that offers him a job opportunity in an art film. Milos is introduced to the director Vukmir that offers a millionaire contract to Milos to act in a film. However, Vukmir neither shows the screenplay nor tells the story to Milos. Milos discusses the proposal with Marija and he signs the contract. But he soon finds out that Vukmir and his crew are involved in sick snuff films of pedophilia, necrophilia and torture and there is no way back to him and maybe it is too late to protect his family.

Why It Sucks

  1. The incredibly uncreative title.
  2. Depictions of rape, necrophilia and child sex abuse for the sake of it, obviously trying too hard to make "horror" out of shock content.
  3. The so-called political subtext said by the director doesn't make the unsettling concept and execution any less excusable, in fact, it actually barely makes any sense at all.
  4. Vukmir is an extremely unlikable villainous character as he sees rape and murder as a way of art and even influenced Milos to rape his underage son. Though on other hand it may even be a plus, since that makes the audience heavily dislike him.
  5. Terrible dialogue.
  6. The film was meant to symbolize the molestation by the Serbian government and fails miserably when it portrays the movie as nothing more than shock value.
    • It also claims it's an allegory for the atrocities of the Yugoslav Wars, sounding like something the director made up to give this film a free pass.
  7. Horrible acting.
  8. Very ugly and grotesque cinematography.
  9. Borderline child pornography, such as the infamous scene of a newborn infant literally getting raped.
    • At least during the making of of those scenes, they used dolls, not actual minors.
  10. Ungodly downer ending, Milos and his family commit suicide only for a film crew to perform sex on their dead bodies.
  11. It simulates child porn and snuff films together.
  12. This movie is, supposedly, a black comedy satire. Though good luck finding one scene that is even remotely amusing.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. This movie at least has some creativity, like the scene where Milos puts his penis into someone's eye.
  2. The music used during some intense scenes is decent.
  3. The special effects are somewhat impressive.

Trivia

During the making of certain scenes like the scene where a baby is raped where used dolls, not actual minors.

Reception

This film has gone down as one of the most abysmal cult hits ever made. Upon its debut on the art film circuit, the film received substantial attention for its graphic depictions of rape, necrophilia, and child sexual abuse. The Serbian state investigated the film for crime against sexual morals and crime related to the protection of minors. The film has been banned in Spain, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Norway, and temporarily banned from screening in Brazil.

Still there are idiots keep saying Anime and Hentai are the same(specially saying that Ecchi and Hentai are the same), when there are things that go further than Hentai, but still I don't give a shit about Hentai, never watched Hentais in any platform. Even if Ecchi is the closest to Hentai, Ecchi has differences to Hentai. But this is far beyond hentai, ecchi or gore anime and all that shit. Child porn to newborns, filled with NTR, blegh! But still never watched it.

This film is actually a rip-off of the first Manhunt game by Rockstar Games, which makes completely unoriginal, but even Manhunt was smart enough in not being revolting for the sake of shock value.

How does this rip off a video game exactly?
avatar

LA2002

Score 5

The reason why I consider A Serbian Film is a rip-off of Manhunt? Because of the premise.

Manhunt is about a former death-row inmate named James Earl Cash, who awakens from his "execution" to discover that prison officials were bribed to fake his death and deliver him into the clutches of a snuff film ring named Lionel Weatherstark, who wants to use him as the newest star of his latest snuff film.

In A Serbian Film, the retired porn star and family man Milos returns from retirement after is contracted to star in a film, and when Milos finds out about the film really is, it's actually a sick pedophilia and necrophilia-themed snuff film, and everything gets a turn for the worst for Milos.

In either way, A Serbian Film is far more gruesome and disturbing than Manhunt, and that's why I think that A Serbian Film could be a possible rip-off of Manhunt.

If you want a film that's shock value done right, watch Hereditary. That movie has A TON of shock value that is actually able to scare, unlike this crap of a movie, and doesn't even use rape, child pornography, and all of that stupid crap.

I admit, this film could've been better if it even had substance. The main problem is that it completely lacks a plot or character development and it tries way too hard to be shocking but instead comes off as pretentious trash.

Since this is on here, would Saló, or the 120 Days of Sodom qualify for this wiki? Or is it too artsy for here?

Being too artsy doesn't mean much, even critics don't know what to say to prove their point about it being a great movie.

I guess they like it only because of the fact it isn't a blockbuster but an author's movie and we know critics positively judge a movie only if it they find some deep meaning in it. They practically judge a movie taking into account what goes on in their heads rather than the actual movie itself.

It should be here.

Cannibal Holocaust should be on here. Its like this one but worse: Cannibal Holocaust has laughable acting, The found footage everyone talks about is only in the last 14 minutes of the film, And the director of the movie tried to convey a message about cruelty, But it ends up being hypocritical because they tortured and killed animals just to make their stupid movie. It is bad that some people defend a serbian film, But there are people out there who think that animals dying for their entertainment is art.
