If you are discussing taboo horror films. A Serbian Film is bound to come up. The intensely dark subject matter of A Serbian Film isn’t messing around. Even the hardest heart and stomached horror lover will have problems with the finale of the film. Well, the folks over at Unearthed Films are bringing back the controversy in 4k and uncut. The clarity of 4k is particularly almost hilarious. Who would want that sort of clarity? If you have already seen the film, you would assume that was already the “uncut” version. I mean how much further does this go?
Update: Even though below it clearly says this is a “blu-ray” There was still some confusion. This is from a 4K master but a regular blu-ray. The verbiage and link below made that clear but, hey some folks just read headlines.
The synopsis for A Serbian Film goes like this:
Milos, a retired porn star, leads a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year-old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make ends meet. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla will change everything. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir – a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. A leading role in Vukmir’s production will provide financial support to Milos and his family for the rest of their lives. From then on, Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer, “the director” of his destiny. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he’s put into, and save his family’s life, Milos will have to sacrifice everything – his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.
