Watching We Are What We Are last night and blogging about it this morning got me thinking about the cannibalism sub-genre of Horror. Time for another Top 10 list boys and girls!
But before I begin, I’d just like to take a moment to state the following: FUCK CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. I refuse to say anything redeeming about this film from 1980 even though it is, perhaps, the most infamous cannibal-themed offering in existence. I don’t mind using this platform, however, to talk about what a disgrace CH is and why it should never be watched by anyone. I’m about as anti-censorship as one can be, but this film features real animals being brutally murdered in the name of “Entertainment”. Don’t buy into the hype that CH is trailblazing and/or responsible for the “Found Footage” sub-genre of Horror. In reality, it’s just a poorly made piece of shit and among the lowest forms of art.
Ok, I’m off the soapbox. Check out my Top 10 Cannibal Horror Movies list after the jump.
