Review: You know that feeling when you watch a really tough movie? I had that feeling after watching only a few movies and the worst were “Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom” and “Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist”. But I was not prepared for the cruelty of “Cannibal Holocaust”. I’ve read a lot about the most controversial sequences of the film before seeing it but it was too difficult for me to not feel shocked with all the violence/gore of the film. “Cannibal Holocaust” was definitely one of the toughest movies I’ve ever seen. It’s more than just an exploitation film, “Cannibal Holocaust” it’s a like a free ticket for your worst nightmare. It’s a ride you won’t forget for a long time.
Sequences like the impalement scene and the murder of a large turtle were to cruel and nasty to watch. And for a 1980’s film I have to confess that I’m shocked how real it seemed. In the film, six animals are killed and those are really intense and gruesome scenes. It’s a crazy, rude and cruel ride where you will ask yourself sometimes why are you watching the film but at the end of it, after all the evidences of this crazy journey are finally destroyed, you will understand that this is not just a simple horror movie. “Cannibal Holocaust” shows us the cruelty of men and leaves us with a really interesting quote “I wonder who the real cannibals are.”. It’s a really graphic film and it’s hard for me to advise you to watch it but despite all this things I’ve said, “Cannibal Holocaust” manages to deliver and accomplish everything a true horror-movie fan really wishes. Violent, cruel, gruesome, graphic, “Cannibal Holocaust” will maybe force you to close your eyes in the toughest scenes. It was definitely an horror movie I will never forget.
