This might not entirely be what you're looking for, but Anna Lorentzon
and Barbara Bell's GRAPHIC SEXUAL HORROR is an interesting new doc on
s&m. It played at Slamdance and a friend of mine programmed it at
Fantasia this year.
SNUFF is decent. It's pretty much what you expect from the title — an
inconclusive look at the existence (or lack thereof) of snuff films.
It has wide DVD distribution though, which if you're programming it
for a festival might make it less interesting for you.
Another recent doc that I haven't seen but was also programmed at
Fantasia this year is Julian Nitzberg's THE WILD AND WONDERFUL WHITES
OF VIRGINIA. Not scary, but definitely odd & demented subject matter.
