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.

Real horrorshow! 🥛 To be honest though, I found there was a lot more rape shown than acts of cannibalism which I found disappointing. The film wasn’t what I expected, but I do think the director did an amazing job with it. Just a one time viewing for me.

One of the craziest films ever made. I'd like to see more stuff of this caliber on Shudder.
