I thought I'd reply to the list because it may be of general interest.
Aren't snuff films an "urban myth".  A book you may know about is David
Kerekes & David Slater.  Killing for Culture: an illustrated history of
death film from mondo to snuff.  This is reviewed in Sight & Sound July
1994, p.31.
 
I'd be interested to know whether the torture & killing of people for the
cinematic pleasure of the rich & sick is in any way a reality - or
whether it is simply a piece of fantasy which was assumed a sense of
reality because filmmakers have chosen to indulge in exploiting this
fantasy.
