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.

I don't support animal cruelty, therefore I don't support this film. I originally saw it on VHS ages ago, before I knew the animal killings were real, and I still didn't think it was a good film. It's just shock value for the sake of shock value, from an edgy guy that wanted to push the envelope of what was socially acceptable within horror in the 80s. If you wanna see mindless gore, spare yourself the 96 minutes of (horribly) attempted plot, and just go watch messed up videos on reddit or wikileaks.

My favorite movie of all time. You find yourself sympathizing with the natives so the ending is that much sweeter.
