In 1976, Findlay's distributor/producer Allan Shackleton decided to use the film as a means of exploiting then-growing rumors in New York City about snuff films—movies purporting to show the actual murder of a human being, filmed for the sole purpose of being sold and exhibited for financial gain.

It was then released under the name Snuff, with the tagline "The film that could only be made in South America... where Life is CHEAP".
