This movie is vile and repugnant. I feel a degree of self-loathing just for watching it.
Anyone else seen it?

Thanks for this answer, this is by far the most helpful one ATMBaby_Kürsch wrote:I actually own the special edition 2 disc dvd set and have gotten 13 different people to watch this movie. Let me explain this. When my friends and I discovered this movie in high school the contest was to see how many people each one of us could get to watch the movie. My friend Anna is still winning I think with about 17 people. Its hard for me to watch now and shows an era of irresponsible film making I hope we never see again. But the storyline is amazing and would love to see a remake of this film that isn't so brutal and offensive. All in all I would say its worth watching once. If your disgusted by animal cruelty I would suggest getting the special edition dvd because there is an animal cruelty free version. But if you like watching monkeys getting the tops of their skulls chopped off, piglets getting shot in the head, musk rats getting their throats cut, massive snapping turtles getting gutted, and snakes getting chopped in half the animal cruelty free version is right for you.
Cannibal Holocaust (1980) is a controversial exploitation film directed by Ruggero Deodato from a screenplay by Gianfranco Clerici. Filmed in the Amazon Rainforest, the movie tells the story of four documentarians who journey deep into the jungle to film indigenous tribes. Two months later, after they fail to return, famous anthropologist Harold Monroe travels on a rescue mission to find the group. Eventually, he recovers and views their lost cans of film, which reveal the missing filmmakers' fate. The film stars Robert Kerman as Monroe, Carl Gabriel Yorke as director Alan Yates, Francesca Ciardi as Alan's girlfriend Faye, Perry Pirkanen as cameraman Jack Anders, and Luca Barbareschi as fellow cameraman Mark Tomaso.
Cannibal Holocaust is a well known exploitation film because of the controversy following its release. After premiering in Italy, the film was seized by a local magistrate, and Deodato was arrested on obscenity charges. He was later accused of making a snuff film due to rumors which claimed that certain actors were killed on camera. Although Deodato was later cleared of these charges, the film was banned in Italy, the UK, Australia, and several other countries due to its graphic depiction of gore, sexual violence, and the inclusion of six genuine animal deaths. Many nations have since revoked the ban, yet the film is still barred in several countries. This notoriety notwithstanding, some critics view Cannibal Holocaust as a social commentary about civilized society.
lol there really is an animal cruelty free version and yes they literally just cut those scenes out of the film. The movie just kinda jumps forward and its a tad bit confusing.t.a.j. wrote:Ok, I know I shouldn't take Baby-Kürsch seriously, but there really is an "animal-cruelty free" version out there? Where the just cut out those scenes? See no evil, indeed... goodness. The shallowness.
