Necropedophiliac, better known as Snuff R73, is a shock mixtape that surfaced around the internet in 2015 and was popularized in 2021 due to a Reddit post of an iceberg chart mentioning this film, which received over 3.5k upvotes. The video remained lost until its discovery in 2021. Rumors about this film have been spreading since 2015, but the actual video is different from what some of the rumors make it out to be.
Snuff R73 is not the actual name of the film. At the beginning of the video, a black screen appears with text that reads "Snuff R73" at the top, and "Necropedophiliac" at the bottom, indicating that the name of the mixtape is Necropedophiliac, and the name of the entity behind it is Snuff R73.
Very little information is available about the origins of the film or the creators. The main lead surrounding the origin of the video, according to a handful of obscure online reviews and several posts made on discussion threads about the video, explains that it was made by a group of around 4-5 people who were prominent on the imageboard website 8chan (8kun) in 2015, and who used Clinton Teale, a fictional character who is named after two murderers (Eric Clinton Newman and Paul Bernando) as a mascot of sorts for their films. Some users familiar with these individuals claim this "Snuff R73" group made other shockumentaries along with Necropedopheliac, and shared them via darknets. Members of the Mondogore subreddit have said that this group split up a long time ago and that none of the former members wish to be contacted about their videos in any way.
The film itself is actually a 10-minute and 55-second compilation of extreme medical gore from the Syrian civil war involving children and babies, with a security camera footage of a man stomping on a toddler, along with pictures of hardcore gore. Before the film was found, some users speculated that Snuff R73 was about a child being tortured. Reddit user "u/throwawayiceberg" noted that "[t]here is an IMDb page for the film. On this IMDb page, it lists Luka Magnotta, the creator of 1 Boy 2 Kittens and 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick, as the only actor". In addition, this user wrote that "there is a French site that explains how horrible the film is." However, this claim was never confirmed.
This website claims that there are two versions of the film, a 3 hour 30-minute version, and a 1 hour 10-minute version, and that they are both from the dark web.
There are also several YouTube videos debunking this particular film (see Videos).
Snuff R73 II is the successor to the first Snuff R73, made by the same group. The mixtape is said to be around 90 minutes long, and only two people are known to have viewed this mixtape, one of them being Thomas Cinemagore, creator of MDPOPE, and the other being Cinema's Underbelly, a YouTuber who exposed him. According to both of these individuals, the mixtape contains footage of suicides and murders.
