Audience Reviews for Cannibal Holocaust

  • May 23, 2016
    A very realistic found footage film. With multiple rape scenes and legitimate animal killings, this one is not for the faint-hearted. At its core, Cannibal Holocaust is a choppy, disgusting mess. This films only purpose is shock value and i guess it achieves that.

    Shot as a mondo film, Cannibal Holocaust remains as one of the most disturbing movies ever made and has inspired the found footage genre. The plot concerns a group of film-makers gone missing in the Amazon and the footage found that documented the last days of their lives when they encountered primitive tribes. The main selling point was the iconic "human stake" scene that was so real that people thought it was a snuff film in Italy. Other than that, most of the violence were done to the animals. The make up and special effects were so incredible even by today's standard but the gore was pretty fake sadly. It's not a film that you would want to watch again.

    A crew of filmmakers goes into the Amazon jungle, torments a primitive tribe, and then gets the tables turned on them. The irony of this disturbing movie is that it posits that modern society is more savage than the primitive cannibals, then proves it by filming sadistic scenes of real animal killing. Unique, and effective at times, but utterly reprehensible.
