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 film where the actual killing, "snuffing" of the main actor is recorded. The only ideal movie for some people to be in.

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?
"August Underground isn't snuff, but it's a great film"

A movie where someone is legitimately killed. So far no one has produced evidence that these actually exist. On at least 2 instances, separate serial killers filmed themselves torturing and/or raping their victims; however, the killings were not filmed. There are also movies (such as "Faces of Death") where death scenes are filmed, but only after the victims died.

So to answer any questions, there are no movies in existence that show a human being actually being killed.
Think about it. If you commit a murder would you be so stupid as to leave behind a film or video as evidence?!
