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.

A portrayal of sadistic filmmakers makes you wonder who the real bad guys are

I’ve been wanting to see this for years and what can I say? The point of horror is to horrify and this film certainly delivers the macabre and the taboo. It’s evident as to why this film has the reputation it garnered when first produced. Very real cruelty mixed with just realistic cruelty makes this a shocking experience not for the easily triggered. Viewer beware.

Weird, gory, and a little twisted. It’s okay, but doesn’t live up to the hype.
