Srpski film, aka: A Serbian Film (2010)

I’ve reviewed some sick and harsh films over the years (eg: Martyrs, Ebola Syndrome, The Human Centipede etc.) but this one takes the biscuit. In fact, it eats the entire packet and spits the crumbs in my face!

Srpski Film (aka: A Serbian Film) goes places no film should go. Yes, I’ll be hyping this film up and not giving away too many scenes, but where I do explain an OTT scene, I’ll cover it with a spoiler tag. The reason being that you should see this film without knowing the main scenes that make it surely THE most outrageous film ever.

The story: Milos is a former porn star who is down on his luck financially. When he receives a call from his long-time movie actress partner, Layla, he welcomes her call. Apparently she’s heard that a new film director wants to hire Milos to star in his “artistically-designed” porn film for a very generous price. He is easily lured form his semi-retirement by the lucrative offer, agreeing to meet the director in an isolated mansion. As the filming progresses, Milo begins to suspect that the director’s intentions may be darker than mere pornography. As the film begins to devolve into a horrifically violent production, Milos finds escape may not be an option. (IMDb.com)

Sounds like your average torture-porn film, and it does seem like that initially. About one-third of the way in we see some rough (soft-core) porn, all movements and no penises (thankfully!) with some slapping. No big deal for us veterans of extreme horror. The half-way mark is when it all goes haywire. Y’see, poor Milos has no idea what this film he’s starring in is all about, it’s when the director shows him a clip that you realise that this is some sick stuff:

It's not what you're thinking... it's much MUCH worse!

Whatever you’re thinking probably isn’t what happens. If you really want to know, click the SPOILER link below to find out, but I urge you to watch the film and see for yourself.

Poor Milos storms out of the showing and heads off in his car. But a hot chick approaches his car and he can’t keep his hands off her. Next thing you know he’s waking up, in bed, covered in cuts, bruises and blood. Oh dear!

She's cuffed to the bed, he has a machete and there's rigor mortis involved. Uh oh!

Now Milos has to piece together what has happened to him. This is shown in a series of flashbacks. As we head towards the end of the film the director has filming Milos in increasingly depraved situations. The main crux of those I shant reveal, you’ll have to watch the movie for them, but needless to say, you’ll either be sitting back, mouth open, saying ‘what the FUCK?!’, or looking away in disgust. One scene in particular which I certainly wasn’t expecting was one involving Milos and one of the directors heavies.

And if you think you’re going to get a happy ending, think again. That’s all I’m saying.

Like I said, I thought I’d seen it all, then this ‘thing’ turns up. I’m kinda stuck on rating this one, as if I give it a high rating then I’m saying that I enjoyed what I saw, and I didn’t really! Hours after having watched it, I still couldn’t shake off some of those scenes. But, by giving it a low mark, I’d be dismissing what is, for all intents and purposes a well made and well thought out film. The story is good, it has some good twists, and it’s technically good. So, my score is based on a rating of one being nothing special, to five, with five being outrageous sickness…

Rating: ★★★★★

Don’t expect to see this film uncut on any shelves!

    Where did you acquire a copy of this film? I need to see the fully uncut version!

  2. Ronnie says:

    I may, or may not, have acquired a screener of it from a certain haven of horror films *ahem* *nudge nudge, wink wink* 😀

  3. the dude says:

    I just watched the uncut version of this movie that I *ahem* “aquired” through nefarious means. I was speechless, and I have never winced from anything I saw in a movie until I saw this. The ending, more so the last line spoken in the movie really just tied the whole thing together and completely blew my mind out of my arse. I feel privileged to have seen this movie in its original form, but I will never…repeat…NEVER watch it again.

    How sick a film can be? Well, for now, this is the sickest. Don’t see it, it is bad for your soul.

  5. Sven Nina says:

    I really enjoyed the newborn porn in this film.

    I live in Serbia for my whole life. I am also a friend with few people involved in making of this film. This said, I would like to say a few thing about Serbian Film.

    The metaphors mentioned by the producers are there but it is difficult to see them because the shock impact of the explicit scenes. Although the intention of this flick is NOT about presenting metaphors. It is about shock effect it has. Watching it for the first time i felt like i did when i watched Hostel for the first time. It is not the gore, or the sexually explicit scenes, it is, like in Hostel, the idea behind it that is actually scary.

    Reading the reviews I can see that many people are disgusted by it. It is completely normal. This is not a movie for everybody. Actually it is for minority of people who can watch it knowing that it is a movie, not reality. Though, some things are reality not just in Serbia, but around the world (very sad, but true).

    The thing that bothered me the most it that the movie is called Serbian film, but that is not Serbia. Again, I would like to make parallel with Hostel. Hostel is not Slovakia. Serbian film is not Serbia.

    Serbian film made me proud and disgusted at the same time. Proud because my countrymen made one of the most shocking movies ever and it will be a cult movie for times to come. And disgusted because it depicts Serbia as wild, morbid and twisted society which is not.

    Finally I would like to say this :
    If you can withstand gore, brutality, morbid ideas behind the scenes, and look at the movie as the whole not as sum of its parts, get and watch this movie. It will shock you, but at the end you will feel it was worth it.
    If not, stay WAY clear of Serbian film.

    The worst movie ever made. Sick. Sick director and writer. Shame for humanity…

  8. Don Moore says:

    Sick movie. Sick director and acters. Shame for humanity…

  9. Katarina says:

    Hey,I’m from Serbia,and I just want to say that this film is absolutely the worst film someone could make…A lot of Serbs think that that guy is sick and of course that’s not the true “color” of Serbia and Serbs. We are nice and friendly people and Serbia is a beautiful country…I think that they didn’t show the movie in Serbia,or if they did,small number of people watched it…

  10. A Serbian Film will be playing at our upcoming film festival at Portage Theater in Chicago on Saturday, October 23rd. http://www.horrorsociety.com/festivals/

    The movie is made by world gay conspiracy sickoes, the title says it all, hidden in plain sight:
    AS SF , Assfuckers of gay San Francisco.

    So now as healthy side of humanity who is gonna win this ultimate occult war , I am proclaiming invention of the Fetus porn as my copyrighted right, send to mepregnant women. Let there be blood.

  12. B says:

    First off this is not a metaphorical movie about the atrocities in Serbia, Croatia and Montenegro, but one that is ultraviolent for the attention and to make a quick buck. Shock and horror can be used to make a statement, just look at Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”, but it has to be done well. This is just torture porn and to be a little crude myself, your review mentality is jacked up. So it’s OK to watch a scene where some dude rapes a baby, but as you put it “thankfully” there were no penises in the first third of the movie. Oh no not male genitalia, but baby raping hell yeah. Dude get your priorities straight.

    This is just a sick movie with no art in it.
    This film should be banned from all theaters world wide.
    And what is that crap about calling it “Serbian”.
    What are Serbs? People who like to kill and torture other people? I don’t think so!
    The director should be ashamed for making that king of movie and calling it Serbian.

    American Respective: I realize that I am making a really big generalization here when I say that I (and fellow Americans) did not think that this movie represented Serbian people. Honestly, the title of the movie just gives it a place to occur. It could have very well been named any of the western or European countries and the fact still remains the same- that this is one heck of a disturbing movie. In this case, ignorance is bliss. I’d like to live the rest of my life thinking that this is just a movie and that this stuff will never happen in real life… see? Like I said, in this case, I pick the “ignorance is bliss” option. This movie was horrifying, disgusting, and at the same time distasteful. I did like it because it was quite creative but at the same time, it was horrifying to know what human mind can create… And I can’t believe this was premiered at a South by Southwest film festival. Wow!?! And I thought the scenes in Antichrist were bad.

    Sick a disturbing film.. the new born porn is just so wrong.

    @Direktor:
    You must be effing dumb.
    It’s not an art film, the main character was drafted into an art film.
    It’s called “A Serbian Film”, because it litteraly is a film in Serbia. The actors are Serbian, the director is Serbian, and it’s a fucking metaphore for how fucked up the country is.

    Props for newborn rape.
