'Cannibal Holocaust' Review By The Cryptkeeper: Resurrected
Hey listen, I don't know about this. I think they want us for dinner tonight.
The film is broken up into two halves. The first about a group of people going to search for a doc*mentary film crew that went missing in the jungle filming their latest doc*mentary about cannibalism. They find the footage that the film crew was making, and view it, which is then the second half of the film. The first half is, for the most part, tame. And you may even start to wonder why people call this film so disturbing. When the start to play back the footage they find is where the real fun begins.
Now, by today's standards, I'd say this movie does not rank terribly high on the disturbing scale. But for back in the 80's... I have no doubt that back then it was today's A Serbian FIlm, if not even more disturbing. People today are desensitized to seeing more and more gore in cinema. Be advised, there is many scenes of rape, and dismemberment in this film. It may be 80's, but it is not very cheesy. The acting is actually good. However, the directing is amature. The shots and sequences flow well enough, but could be enhanced. Which is why I'd love to see a remake of this some day.
Well, folks, I'd say that you should definitely catch this classic. It will more than likley be expensive to purchase, but it is definitely worth it. And be sure to get it uncut. There are some lame versions, without the animal cruelty, and among other things cencored as well.
