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.

The movie was a fantastically made movie that questioned the morality of humanity and the effects of power that the strong use to bully the weak. ALSO YALL ARE FUXKINGJS SNO0LAKES
This is the most twisted horror film i ever seen... i can see why it is so controversial. But it's a good film if you have the stomach for it.
The animal cruelty bums me out. Aside from that, not very fun or scary.
Made me feel
Does the fact that I wound up totally loving this schlock B horror film make me a fundamentally bad person? Queued it up solely because of its notoriety, but was surprised to find that it was much more interesting than I was expecting, narratively as well as visually.
