Corrected entry: Nic Cage tells the old woman on the phone that the company that provided the film for the snuff movie was discontinued in '92 so it had to be made prior to that, yet when he pulls Mary Anne's file from the police station, it reads that she'd been missing since '93.

Correction: That simply means they stopped making the film in 1992. The bad guys who made the snuff film may have had some left over. I still (as of 2011) have some 25-speed (ASA25) film left over that Kodak stopped making in 1998.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Nicholas Cage is watching the first of the 'snuff' movies he bought, he is smoking a cigarete. Disgusted by the film, he ejects the tape from his VCR and starts playing the second one. Now there is a shoot from above, showing him lighting another cigarette. He must be a really fast smoker.

Correction: It is actually the same cigarette, he is just re-lighting it because it went out while he was watching the snuff film.

Audio problem: Right after Max and Tom watch the two fake snuff films, Max mentions the record company's lack of interest. At one point his lip movements don't seem to match his words. (00:50:35)

Max California: Are you sure? I'd hate for you to be in one of those everyday situations that calls for a battery-operated vagina and not have one.

Question: Can someone please explain what a snuff film actually is? I've heard that they don't exist, and they are just a rumor, but can someone clarify all this?

Answer: A snuff film is a movie where someone is actually killed on film, where the intention is to sell the movie afterwards. There are several other instanses where people are shown murdered on film (news reports, the Zapruder film, dictatorships documenting executions, etc.), but if the purpose of making the movie is not commercial, it is not a geniune "snuff" film. FBI experts and other law agencies state that they have never seen a genuine "snuff", and that it is most likely just a rumor, especially since the concept of someone willingly selling evidence of their own crimes to strangers and remaining undetected for 30 years, is highly unlikely.
