When it comes to horror films from the last decade, I cannot think of anything more controversial than A Serbian Film. Mentioning the title can elicit extreme emotions from those who have seen the film, or simply heard of it, ranging from anger to admiration and everything in between. Regardless of where you stand, there’s no doubt that A Serbian Film is a serious conversation starter within the horror community.

Now, directors Stephen Biro and Jason Koch are co-directing A Serbian Documentary with A Serbian Film director, Srdjan Spasojevic, on as producer. Of course, Stephen Biro is no stranger to extreme filmmaking. His American Guinea Pig films are considered to be among the most graphic horror films made in recent years. The same can be said for Jason Koch, having directed a short film in ABCs of Death 2.5 (“M is for Munging”) and 2016’s Pig Pen.

According to Unearthed Films: “A Serbian Documentary will take an exclusive look at Srpski Film, aka A Serbian Film, and the world wide reactions of one of the most talked about, controversial films of the last decade. A Serbian Film has been banned and censored and has even had legal charges brought against film festival promoters just for showing it.

This in-depth documentary will have exclusive interviews with the actors, crew members, writers and of course, Sdjan Spasojevic, director of A Serbian Film. Celebrity interviews of what they thought while watching this for the first time and how it would affect the cinema world. Whether good or bad, we will hear from critics, film makers, distributors and film festival programmers and get their honest reactions of A Serbian Film.”

Once seen, this is definitely a film that never leaves your mind. Srdjan Spasojevic had a message beyond just shocking audiences, and I’m looking forward to hearing from him and the cast about what making it meant to them. The film is currently in production with Unearthed Films, Contra Films and Dire Wit Films.
