Synapse Will Share THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A PORNO GANG On Blu-ray/DVD This August!

Charlie Hobbs, Contributing Writer
Back in 2010, when everyone was flipping their lid over A Serbian Film, there was another little Serbian feature that went just as far, if not even further in the black heart of the post-Milosevic nation. The Life and Death of a Porno Gang comes to us from director Mladen Djordjevic, and for my money is an even more shocking assault on the nervous system than it's more notorious younger brother.

I caught the film on Blu-ray from Germany's Bildstorung, however, it will be fantastic to have a more affordable domestic option when Synapse Films releases their edition this August. For those of you who thought that A Serbian Film was all sizzle and no steak, you may have met your match with The Life and Death of a Porno Gang, a harrowing depiction of Serbia in the grips of a massive culture decline. Truly frightening stuff.  Here's what Synapse has to say about their next release:
During the final days of Slobodan Miloševic's Serbian rule, a young film student named Marko becomes desperate to make a feature film. Finally getting a job as an adult film director, he quickly runs afoul of the mob and needs to get out of town fast! Assembling a traveling group of misfits into a "porno cabaret," Marko and his new friends drive though the quiet countryside in a beat-up van performing live sex acts for peasants and farmers. But life is hard on the road, and they find it hard to earn enough money to survive.

Marko meets a shady snuff film producer who says they can make a lot more money shooting actual murders, theatrically "performed" with willing participants. This is one offer the struggling porno gang cannot refuse!

Synapse Films is proud to present both Blu-ray and DVD editions of Mladen Djordjevic's controversial film, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A PORNO GANG. Not for the faint of heart, nor weak-minded, this critically acclaimed shocker is "bursting with outrageous characters and shocking situations... a candy-colored suicide bus to hell" (Mitch Davis, Fantasia Film Festival). Funny, gruesome, sexy and jaw-dropping adults-only entertainment!
In addition to the feature, you'll get the director's previous documentary, Made in Serbia. It's an inside look at the Serbian underground porno circuit, and provided some of the inspiration for Porno Gang. If Porno Gang doesn't get you grasping for a straight razor, Made in Serbia just might.
