Sites about the truth or falsity of rumors about "snuff films". Note that this category is not for sites promoting alleged snuff films. The term "snuff film" refers to an underground movie in which people are literally murdered on camera for entertainment. The urban legend apparently originated in publicity for the low-budget film Snuff (1970), intended to give the false impression that it contained footage of a real murder. Though many alleged snuff films have been investigated since the 1970s, no genuine example has been found.
Sites promoting alleged "snuff films" or footage of accidental death do not belong in this category. Sites with pornographic imagery, violent or otherwise, should be submitted to the Adult/ hierarchy.
