Unearthed Films goes dark for their new release: Deep Web XXX

When Stephen Biro announced that they would start a line of films entitled “Too extreme for mainstream,” Fans began to salivate at the fact that a horror studio like Unearthed Films would push the envelope even further. With films like Bloodshock, Sacrifice, Song of Solomon, the only way they could go is deeper into the flesh and blood of their work.

The second film in their line up I had the chance to watch is Deep Web xxx. Like it’s the previous film Torment, it’s only a LE, and after it’s sold out, it’s gone. No reprints, no re-issues.

So I had to jump on this release. Deep Web XXX is an anthology of short stories that get to the point and don’t skimp on the gore or uneasy as if we’re watching the videos in real life. The film starts with a guy downloading a file to access the deep web. He seems hesitant at first but downloads the file with no regret.

I won’t go into detail or even spoil the videos you’ll watch. To truly understand the degradation, the insanity of the blood lust of Deep Web, you have to see it. The film runs for about 76 minutes, which doesn’t seem like a long time, but it’s a reasonable amount of time. As stated, the stories get to the point but do seem a bit slow; however, though the story by Sam Mason Bell, which is about Drug testing has a very uncomfortable ending that made want to take a cold shower afterward. The gore in the film is up there along with the self-mutilation at times, but it’s not over the top silly or not relevant for the scene; it’s done in a way that makes us wonder how it was done or gives us a feeling we are there. Domiziano Cristopharo’s story, which is about a sex venture that ends in a very twisted way, is graphic but yet exciting? However, though it was well executed. 

The film may be too extreme for some and some, not severe enough, but overall I enjoyed the movie. There’s no cheesy titles, no moral lesson we learn at the end about life, but just a film about the deep web that is out there given it may not be real or perhaps it is. We’ll never know, and honestly, we shouldn’t. UE does the job for us by showing the dark, perverse side.

The end of the film is excellent where yes, there’s a twist, but it works well. This is a film worth owning give a fair warning that curiosity killed the cat.
