So, I've been looking for this online but haven't been able to find it on any of my usual movie watching sites. Anyone have any links where I could watch this?

I found it on a few sites a couple months ago but when I started watching it I realized it was a German dub so it was kind of worthless for me.

Cannibal Holocaust sounds like it will be kinda lame.


I'd love to be proven wrong though.

It's supposed to be the most controversial movie ever made.

I'm expecting it to not be as bad as its reputation. It was probably more controversial because of how it was shot (actually killing animals on camera) than the content. I know the content was part of it as well, but I have a feeling that may be less shocking now than it was when it was first made.

I've heard mixed opinions on it, I've heard both that it's a great movie in it;s own right and that it's terrible.

my dad owns it. if i were more technologically inclined, i would figure out a way to get it on my computer. however... =\

i refuse to watch it though. no desire to see animals die for reals.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about that. I don't know if I can watch the whole thing, which is why I don't want to pay the money to rent it.

You don't even want to see it when it's pretend.

I haven't seen it, but from what i've read its just a horribly made exploitation flick which depicts natives in a racist manner, and actually kills animals for the sake of “shock value”. Plus i have no idea how people can consider these types of films "entertainment". *gets down off of the soapbox*

I've downloaded it from a torrent site before, but never fully watched it. It is probably only controversial because of the scenes involving animals (ie, the slicing off of a monkeys face and the killing and dissecting of a turtle for eating). Just search on mininova or another torrent search site, it'll be there.

Originally, there was controversy over whether or not it was a snuff film.

That was to do with the woman and the pole right? The director only cleared his name because he managed to find the actress (I think?).

Cannibal Holocaust's repz just went up in my book. I want to see it now.

Yes. The way the movie was marketed, plus how real that scene looked made people think that she was actually killed.

In 1984 alot of these films were banned
in the late 90s they started to resuface a lot of hype was built
round cannibal holacoust and others like cannibal ferox
and i just got to see the two this year.

I am a die hard horror fan and me and my brother
are special fx guys and found both films a dissapointment.


In other words if you havent seen it
your not missing much

I don't think people watch it for the special effects...

Jakebert

Plus, it's a horror movie. Horror movies don't have to be gross and heavy on special effects in order to be scary. That's just a misconception created by the morons that thought Saw was the greatest horror movie ever.

you've got me wrong pals
i just ment about getting hyped up about the cannibal films
and i know that fx aren't every thing in a scary movie.
I was just saying that they are better horror films from
that era

Everyone makes mistakes when writing a post, but i find that quite patronizing when you say it like that with the re
ad. If this wasn't intended then take no notice of this but it didn't sound good to me.

So for those of you who are having trouble reading the post here it is again,

you've got me wrong
i just mean don't get hyped up about those cannibal films,
and i know that the special fx isn't everything in a horror movie but
I was just saying that they are other horror films from that time that are better.

Once again
You've typed in the annoying "i'm
going to start new lines after every
sentance"
thing.
Stop.
Take some time to think.
Figure out what's important to you.

Damn your smart it must have taken you hours to think of that one. Try telling it to someone who isn't from the UK.

No, fucking really.

Stop. Take some time to think. Figure out what's important to you. You've got to make a serious decision.

Holy shit, you're from the UK? I honestly was not expecting that. I was thinking you were from South America, or just someplace where English isn't the official language.

Homer, these forums have proven time and time again that the worst English speakers in the world reside in the UK.

Go. Act immediately, without rumination. Conform to ideas and concepts other people hold in high regard.
