Faces Of Death is the infamous 1978 shockumentary depicting a variety of violent and horrible ways that humans and animals can die. Much of it was faked, some of it obviously so. Regardless of its semi-authenticity, it is a classic of mondo VHS cinema. Radio show/podcast On The Media's Brooke Gladstone recently spoke with Faces of Death creator John Alan Schwartz.

Update: More from Schwartz in this great Deadspin article, "'Cut Back To A Wide Shot. Open The Skull': The Faces Of Death Guy Looks Back" (Thanks, Evan G!)
