A tape where the planned killing; murder of someone is recorded.
There have been evidence of snuff films, there was a huge Russian based child-porn ring/website broken up a few years ago called "Wonderland." Where for the right price they would kill the kid and film it, and the perv would watch it. The police have evidence of these digital tapes, and part of one was shown on an Italian news broadcast!

BTW you contridicted yourself when you said "...Some serial killes have recored themsleves torturing and killing, but these crimes were not filmed(???)..." And what the fuck is a legitimate murder?

A celebrity free pass is an agreement between you and your significant other that if you meet said celebrity and there is an opportunity to sleep with them, your partner cannot get mad at you for doing so because you had agreed before hand that this person was your celebrity free pass. It is ideal if both of you in the relationship choose a celebrity free pass so that the playing field is even.

A snuff film is a myth...

A snuff film is a film in which someone is killed for other peoples pleasure, not the killer's.

Faces of death is in the "mondo" catergory. Executions arn't snuff films, they are execution tapes.

BTW, of course there has been footage of real killings (to the guy who said there isn't)Nick Berg? Dan Pearl? The Columbine Massacre?
