Fred Vogel's August Underground
AU is a chilling account told through the found video diary footage of a pair of sociopaths who torture and murder unsuspecting victims in an extremely brutal manner. The killers record what they want when they want it on their hand held cameras, completely taking away any sense of watching a regular “Hollywood produced” film and leaving the viewer questioning whether or not what he/she is watching is real or not. The cameraman never physically appears in the film as he follows a large man (played by actor/director Fred Vogel) who leads viewers on a path of terror. The special make-up effects are extremely convincing and almost too real, adding to thecinema veritéfeel of the picture. Gaining acclaim as the most disturbing movie ever made,August Undergroundis adored by many gore hounds as a cult classic and the underground’s most notorious horror film.
Young and innocent men and women, led to believe that they are auditioning to star in fetish videos, are lured by a lesbian couple, Syl and Maddie, and a mysterious Cowboy to act in sexually charged underground movies featuring a diabolical presence known only as Maskhead who tortures and kills his victims while the girls get dolled up and film the mayhem.
