mike's Review of Cannibal

5 years ago via Flixster


Cannibal is the story of a man who wants to eat someone. He puts offers out there, has a couple interviews, and finally finds his "Flesh." This movie is very weird and made me uncomfortable in several scenes.

I wasn't repulsed by the extended, and very realistic, gore scenes. What made me uneasy was that the two main characters, The Man and The Flesh, have a lot of gay sex. There is more wiener in this movie than in an Oscar Meyer documentary. This guy takes playing with your food to a whole new level. I would never make out with a PB & J...ok, maybe I would, but I wouldn't have sex with it.

The Man's voice is very annoying as well. Fortunately, he only says about ten lines in the whole film. It has a weird soundtrack. You can hear things happening in the scenes, like bottles clinking, but you hardly ever hear anyone talk.

This movie was shot with a digital camera and they used some pretty cool effects. My only problem with the visuals was that they shot the dismemberment scene really dark. It was gruesome, but hard to see what was happening.

Cannibal was more realistic than anything I have seen in a long time. If you can't handle watching a man having gay sex with his meal, then chopping said meal into many pieces, don't rent this flick. If you don't mind seeing a ton of wiener and various other meats, check it out, it is an experience.
