CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980)
What can you say about the granddaddy of all cannibal movies? I caught this for the first time on the big screen last night, after seeing it countless times on VHS and DVD, and really enjoyed the intensity of it all. The only negative thing I can point out is the inappropriate use of music in certain scenes which goes along with the repetitive use of a couple of music beds. Kind of reminds me of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT in that respect, but the completely absurd music in that one works better as a jarring contradiction. CANNIBAL FEROX is a more bat-shit crazy version of this which, if I wanna see a nutty exploitation movie, I prefer due to its lack of any silly moralizing. But this one still reigns as the epitome of this small disgusting genre. P.S.- please stop crying about animals being killed if you eat meat you hypocritical jerk-offs.
