Cannibal Holocaust

Cannibal Holocaust

Directed by Ruggero Deodato

A documentary crew get on the bad side of the cannibals they're filming in this gruesome exploitation classic. A researcher recovers footage a crew of filmmakers shot before they disappeared. But when he watches it, he sees horror far worse than he imagined. Made in 1979, but not released here until 1985, this controversial film quickly became a grindhouse smash. But it's biggest impact on horror is surely its innovative found-footage conceit, which led to the emergence of an entire subgenre in recent years. Vegetarians beware: the animal violence is very real.

Gory, shocker film. Didn't care for the animal killings. Overall, if you are looking to watch a Video-Nasty, look no further.

Excellent soundtrack, loved all the animal killings. Definitely in my top 10 all time favorite classic films.

It was so far-fetched and it was so simplistic and ham-fisted in its delivery of social commentary, I couldn't ever take it seriously. Some of the special effects were spectacularly done, though. A great artifact of the era and genre, but not much else.

Well, it's exploitation, I'll give it that. The acting is too subpar to draw you in and the idea of a four person documentary in the mcrew raping and pillaging
