Movie Info

Winner of the City TV Award for Best First Feature Film at The 2004 Toronto International Film Festival, Daniel Roby's direct-to-video horror opus Cannibal (aka Le Peau Blanche, aka The White Skin) offers a unique contemporary twist on vampirism. Roby's film melds jet-black humor, grotesque horror, impassioned romance, and shocking social commentary as it weaves the tale of Thierry Richard (Marc Paquet), a young Canadian collegiate. Thierry develops an unquenchable infatuation with Claire (Marianne Farley) an enigmatic woman with almost deathly white skin. Shortly after they commence an affair, Thierry is horrified to discover his own physiological deterioration; he admits to his pal Henri that he can actually feel Claire inside of his body, draining the life out of him. When Claire's sister viciously attacks Henri at a local hotel, the two men begin to suspect that Claire's nature and origins may be very grim and vile indeed. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

It's...interesting. I like movies that juxtapose something very ancient ( fear of vampires, ghoulies, ghosties, etc.) and a modern setting.

The mixed genre style could potentially be a downer, with equal parts comedy, thriller, social commentary, erotica and horror, but this film has a comfortably light tone.

Interesting vampire movie filmed in Montreal, Quebec. Low budget but the acting and writing were good. The use of vampirism in the movie is pretty low key and not over the top goofiness or full of cheesy make-up like in so many vampire movies. Recommended for fans of good low budget vampire movies!
