    First of all, I'm considering the time it was shot, so I won't brag about the production itself, or the acting, or the off-synching dialogues.

    Now, cutting off the head of a fucking turtle, and break open it's shell while it's still moving was too much.

    Also, the way they show the yanomamis is too much degrading as well. They're not like monkeys, who walks all curved down with help of their arms, and they have their own language, not just grunts and screams.

    That said, the "Cannibal Holocaust" just starts when there's just 15 minutes left. So, basically it was a film about animal cruelty for 1 hour and 15 minutes, and cannibals for about 15 minutes.

    hueheuheuehuehue br.

    Man if I drop off my commas the text will also be kinda of hard to read as your brain will be rushing through endless words all at once and you'll end up confused to the point where you won't know anymore what the subject of the thread was and you'll start to have a seizure as the words keep rolling and your brain keeps working on trying to understand what I wrote.

    Or not.

    Class film, especially the chick on a stick bit. That was actually a real chick who had to sit very still with a giant pole in her mouth for god knows how long. Now that's making classic cinema.

    This scene in particular it the best one. I think that's one of the few scenes that I really liked in the movie.

    You herad about Eli Roth's new film called Green Inferno? heavily based on Cannibal Holocaust, got good reviews so far.

    The region where "Cannibal Holocaust" takes place is called Green Inferno in the movie. Also it was the first name the director wanted to call it.

    I didn't know Eli Roth was doing a film based on CH. But I can't expect nothing better. At least (I think) there won't be animal cruelty like in the original.

    the stick had a bike saddle on, just want to hook that factoid in to the discussion. i think we all know why. because i just woke up and im cranky from detox, i wouldve preferred her impaled. as if it matters, some little hottentott heathen on an island. , in fact i think all women should be subjected to labia lifts every 15 minutes and then impaled, least then i wouldnt have to sit here like a jerk. store closes in 30 mins too. fuck.
