August Underground's Mordum is an independent exploitation film released by the Pittsburgh-based film production/special effects/design company Toetag Pictures in 2003; like its predecessor.



The film depicts a dysfunctional love triangle of sorts between the volatile lead from the original August Underground (portrayed by Toetag founder Fred Vogel), his maniacal girlfriend and partner-in-crime Crusty (Cristie Whiles), and Crusty's animalistic brother, dubbed Maggot (Michael Schneider). As Maggot's mental facilities decline and competition with Vogel's character for the affections of Crusty mounts, tensions simmer before coming to full boil at Mordum's climax: Maggot manages to wrestle Vogel's knife out of his hands and then proceeds to cut his own throat before the film cuts to static.[1]


Despite its direct-to-DVD release, the film earned the number one position on the "Top 10 Sickest Movies" list posted on the IGN Horror Brain blog.[2]


Mordum is a simulated snuff film, which includes graphic depictions of sexual deviancy (including necrophilia and pedophilia) and murder (including a fleeting depiction of infanticide).

Besides his directing the film, Cruise has also been credited with the creation of the FX make-up. [3]
