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.

Amazing revenge story amongst films like Spit on Your Grave. Definately hated the animal deaths, but loved that this film showed just how much some people will fake for fame. I do not appreciate the racism some of the tribespeople faced, but it is an aged movie, not to be excused.

The very worst scenes involve the killing of real animals. Exploitative, but essential viewing for horror fans in my opinion.

I've never seen anything like this movie. It was horrific in several ways I skipped past a couple of them. But all in all it was a movie that will stick with you for awhile.
