Where life is cheap: Blue Underground's SNUFF (review)

One of the cinematic great outrages of the seventies, SNUFF comes to special edition Blu-ray courtesy of Blue Underground.  An actress and her wealthy friends run are in the crosshairs of a hippie guru and his murderous gang of girl bikers.  Infamous roughie filmmakers Michael and Roberta Findlay shot this Manson murders cash-in in Argentina in 1970 but were unable to find a distributor until Monarch Releasing's Allan Schackleton bought the film in 1975 and added a "snuff movie" sequence and turned it into his highest-grossing pic ever SNUFF which outraged critics and feminists alike (some of which were convinced that "the bloodiest thing that ever happened in front of a camera" was real.  Judge for yourself!
