In 1979 four documentary film makers disappeared in the jungles of South America while shooting a film about cannibalism...
Six months later the New York University, along with the Pan American Broadcasting Corporation, sent a search team in looking for the film makers.
They could never have been prepared for what they found.
Owing to the harrowing and graphic nature of the film, Cannibal Holocaust has been banned in over 50 countries and has achieved a notoriety surpassed by no other horror movie.
Paying compliment to Ruggero Deodato's masterpiece, other film makers have tried to imitate but all have failed.
Better to be in the warm body of a friend than in a cold hole in the ground...

This film pre-dates the Blair witch project by over 20 years, with it's hand held camcorder / home movie feel. The film was banned in the 80's due to the prudes like the kill- joy Mary Whitehouse, and branded as a video nasty. The film lived on with terrible pirate video copies, until it finaly got past for re-release a few years back, with several cuts to the violence, including animal cruelty. So now it's time to have another look at one of the most notoriouse horror films ever!
The film is dubbed, with the lips moving out of sync with the words. This makes the acting very poor. The violence although now edited is still strong and is set for some uncomfortable viewing.Also the film feels very, very dated. But it's the final scenes in the film that hit hard, and really disturb, and is very hard to shake off after watching.
The film may not be the ultimate in terror. but it's still one of the best of it's kind. It's not subtle, but it does hit hard.
It's still bloody good!

I dont no how you can compare the likes of Hostel and Saw to this film to be honest? This film wasnt made to be a gorefest, it was shock the audience, in which the director did. You obviously just watched the film for what it was and probably what you do for any other horror film! Personally i agree with the others, get back to watching your bad acting, Hostel and what ever else you watch that is a load of bore and not gore!

 The best cannibal film you'll ever see

The elusive Cannibal Holocaust, in special edition. Don't be fooled by the packaging as the film has been heavily cut.

The plot is really a documentry. Four film makers go issing whilst filming a documentry in the jungles of South America. Their footage was recovered and played back in New York. It turned out that the film makers had committed several atrocities with the local tribes in South America and weer eaten by the cannibals.

The film is like the Bair Witch Project, to try to convice you that the film makers were really devoured by cannibals, and does show its age.

Despite the film being heavily cut by the BBFC (it has 6 minutes of footage missing), it is still a gruesome film. You see a woman impailed on a wooden stake, a pregant woman who has her baby fetus removed, and plenty of dismemberment and eating of humans near the end of ther film.

If you want to buy the version that isn't cut I would buy the NTSC version.

I bought this film from play believing all the hype i had read in mags etc. If you were born in 1920 this may be worth a look, its an old school boring slob of a film. I got the uncut version and so what....the saw and hostel films leave this supposed gore fest on the floor begging for mercy. save your money scary and gory it aint. more thrills in home alone. walk away buddy this one is a real slapped cod of a film.
