 The filmmakers have been threatened by the town of Cohasset Massachusetts. The Cohasset School system was contacted by the Cohasset police department in regards the the Cohasset Snuff Film facebook page. They thought the film would cause a homicide in Cohasset and wanted to shut the film down, hinting at suing the filmmakers.

 In October before the film was in select Massachusetts theaters Cohasset parents tried to have the trailer pulled from Youtube and protested the film at Cohasset City hall.

 Phone Call received by the filmmakers from school official:


In 2009, the small town of Cohasset, Massachusetts was rocked with tragedy. A 17-year-old high school senior named Collin Mason murdered three classmates. All the murders were videotaped and uploaded to the Internet via bit torrent sites and for three days, the world viewed the murders of these three innocent teens. Through legal action, the parents of the victims were able to remove all footage from the Internet and the town tried to save face by pretending it never happened. Bootleg copies of this footage are still passed around and downloaded through illegal means. The impact of this video is still being felt in Cohasset today. The video has become infamous, and is now referred to as The Cohasset Snuff Film.
