  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film 8mm

    A potentially good thriller about snuff is ruined by a central weak performance by Nicolas Cage who overact enormously especially when he sees the film and can't sell the fact that what he sees is a "fake snuff" film. Even worse is that the film look like a glossy stage play of what should have been an intense gritty film and the climax is a laughable "Death Wish" wannabe. A huge missed opportunity.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film 8mm

    Sur la thématique du "snuff-movie", une oeuvre nauséeuse et nauséabonde... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Richard Tines's rating of the film 8mm

    I remember watching this movie feels like being stuck in an elevator with the most boring a**hole (boring varies with temperature and temperament) in the world...wallows morally in the muck/mire it pretends to explore and condemn...can Joel Schumacher not make a good film?

  4. James Mackin's rating of the film 8mm

    It's one of those Nic Cage films that has both the very cheesy moments, but he's also doing quite a good job as well. The rest of the cast is great too.

  5. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film 8mm

    Every decision Schumacher makes is wrong. His gritty underworld is generically stylised to within an inch of its life, feeling false rather than threatening. The backdrop of sexual violence, which the narrative seeks to condemn, is lurid & titillating. The efforts to redeem the protagonist only contradict the film's morality & push towards melodrama. The set-up is hugely enticing, but everything else is wrongheaded.

  6. lupiter's rating of the film 8mm

    kinda gave me the creeps tbh

  7. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film 8mm

  8. Thresk's rating of the film 8mm

    Surprisingly compelling subject matter for a second-half-of-the-90s Nick Cage film, but the bottom falls out in the third act, and good Christ, that faux-Eastern "score". ★★½

  9. JackButcher's rating of the film 8mm

    Nic Cage goes on the hunt for the origins of a snuff film and gets sucked into a seedy underworld of crime which has a very anti-climactic end.

  11. sandracine's rating of the film 8mm

    Not as bad as I had heard it was - Nicholas Cage can do well with a role, when he works at it, Very sleaszy movie indeed.
