    Well, he is doing something wrong. He's taking Skybrick seriously. Common newbie mistake.

    Love what you want, hate what you want Mac. Don't worry when someone turns it back on you. Can't please everyone.

    overrated is a good way to describe it, worth checking if you like cannibals or hate turtles

    Not sure about overrated but the film definitely became overhyped just after Blair Witch Project was released.

    Not exactly sure how it was over hyped because of BWP, since the only reason it was brought up was to dispute the idea that BWP's gimmick of being 'found footage' was original.

    Lotta hype at the time that Cannibal Holocaust was the original BWP. That's really when the film got widespread visibility with mainstream horror fans.

    Still don't see how that was over hyping since at the time of its release, it really was the BWP of the 70's. Yes you are right, it definitely was in the spotlight during this, but the supposed hype has always been the same, and still is about its graphic content and shock value. That's nothing new and hasn't changed before or after BWP.

    It might not be a great film for a number of different reasons, but it certainly isn't overrated. The problem is that with everything being released over the years, people have just become desensitized to all of the violence and shock value this film possesses. It's nothing new, nothing we haven't already seen, or in some way experienced through another film; but it is the first of it's kind.
    What I liked most about this film was that it was made during an era where censorship was lax; horror films were violent, gritty, and unapologetic. If they offended you, then it was just too bad. It was from an era of film making that doesn't exist anymore and never will. The special effects were great for the time, it was violent, offensive, and underneath it all was a social commentary on civilization that is still relevant today. Sure it wasn't a perfect film, and not exactly something you might want to watch over and over, but for what it was, it achieved it's goal which is why it is discussed to this day.

    I've never bought into 'because it was first, it must be the best' mentality that's definitely prevalent out there if not more so than the diluted abundantly blatant remake era of film making we have today.

    Still I would agree this film isn't overrated especially if we go by one of the many interpretations of the term 'overrated'. For one this movie wasn't and hasn't always been talked about regardless of the BWP.

    There were periods of time where you had an abundance of peeps who im sure never heard of this film.

    Yeah, the "because it was first, means it's the best" mentality is something I subscribe to either. But when I think of the cannibal sub-genre, I always go to this film, not only because it was the first, but I think it is the best when compared to it's successors, however, it goes back to what I previously stated. Having already seen Cannibal Holocaust, I knew what to expect when I sat down to view Jungle Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox. Sure, they were entertaining as hell, but was I shocked, offended, on the edge of my seat like I was the first time I viewed Cannibal Holocaust? Hell No! It didn't hold the same level of shock, surprise, and intensity that captivated me when I first viewed Holocaust.
    When I was 18 I found Holocaust in a video store in Slovakia. At this time it was near impossible to find in the states, and this was still in the early stages of DVD release. Until this point my horror knowledge barely spanned beyond Romero, King, and your typical 80's slashers that could be found anywhere, so you could only imagine my excitement when I finally had the film I had heard so much about within my reach.
    We can find Cannibal Holocaust, as well as countless other violent films from all the world over ANYWHERE now. After viewing so many of these films I find it hard to be shocked by anything anymore. Perhaps that is a big reason why when people who have access to so much more than I did, sit down and watch this for the first time, there isn't the same shock value as there was for me, and countless others who might have even seen it upon it's initial release. It came from a period of time when film making was carefree, careless, and no one gave a shit who they offended. It was a period that some of the greatest horror movies of all time emerged; this being one of them.

    Holocaust was not the first of it's kind, not by a long shot. Deep river Savages, Last Cannibal World, and even Emmanuel and the Last Cannibals preceded it.

    http://www.amazon.com/Meat-Murder-Il...8088025&sr=1-2

    This book is an excellent read and has tons of info on Cannibal movies.

    I havent seen Cannibal Holocaust but based on reviews and insights from various books I'm going to assume it is probably a overrated, poorly acted, poorly written, mediocrely directed film.

    I'm sure the gore is over the top and from it sprung a slew of terrible cannibal movies so it's significance shouldn't be overlooked
