Entering the film with misgivings, [[ItGotWorse it only gets worse]] for Miloš, as it soon becomes apparent that he is involved in a very questionable film. After a particularly unsettling series of violent pornographic shoots, Miloš tries to quit, only to be kidnapped, drugged and forced back into the production. He wakes up three days after the kidnapping, with only a video camera and some tapes in his possession. Miloš watches the tapes to regain his memory, and discovers the horrors that he has witnessed.

The plot follows family-man Miloš trying to retire from the porn industry, only to be promised a [[MoneyDearBoy vast sum of money]] to appear in a high concept "art" film, directed by a seemingly eccentric former child-psychologist named Vukmir who will not provide Miloš with a script, only an earpiece through which Vukmir will direct him as he is filmed.

Entering the film with misgivings, [[ItGotWorse it only gets worse]] for Miloš, as it soon becomes apparent that he is involved in a very questionable film which will end up being a snuff film.

* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Miloš is able to get and maintain an erection without any emotional or physical stimulus, making him a perfect pornstar, but also enabling him to be a participant in Vukmir's film.

* CrapsackWorld: The film's setting, and according to itself, Serbia as a whole.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Oh, God. See ILoveTheDead and ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice.

* DownerEnding: Miloš is DrivenToSuicide after the crap he's gone through, [[TakingYouWithMe killing his wife and son as well]]. Then a group of film makers, completely different from the ones Miloš had to take on, film a porn star raping their corpses. Starting with their son.

* MadArtist: Vukmir.
* MalevolentMaskedMen
* MindScrew: The plot. Especially in the UK cut, where several important scenes are removed.
