Original footage of a crucifixion reenactment in the Philipines (NSFW).
A friend of mine had to travel to the Phillipines on business a few weeks ago. He happened to be there just in time for Easter, and to his surprise, the locals reenact the horrific events of Holy Week in the most realistic way possible. Lucky for us, he had a video camera with him and was able to take this footage.
This occurred in Angeles, Phillipines, during Holy Week.
Here, participants cut each others' backs with razor blades. Dunno if this is historically accurate or not.
Now that they're all razored up, the participants proceed to whip themselves repeatedly. Apparently blood splatters all over the place during this part, and spectators should step back a bit.
Finally, one lucky participant gets to play Jesus. Those are real nails being driven into that man.
