    No, it doesn't mean you are wrong. But actually seeing the film under discussion goes a long way in convincing people to consider your thoughts, right or wrong. Especially in a discussion that addresses specific scenes regularly, such as turtles and impaling scenes. A broken watch is right twice a day, doesn't mean it isn't broken.

    I don't know what the hell brought on the discussion of people believing "if it did it first then its the best" since at no point has that been said or even mentioned in any reply. Not to mention the fact that no one has even said Cannibal Holocaust was the first cannibal movie. Not once. Hell, no one even said anything that could lead a person to that conclusion.

    Then the whole bashing of a movie without even seeing it...

    I think I need to go take some aspirin and lay down, because the stupidity in this thread has certainly given me a headache.

    I'm glad that you don't get your own opinion on films. I also think it's very cool that I've avoided so many bad reviews since there is no way 99% of the reviews are bad to a film that has around 6/10 on IMDb, and a film that's loved to pieces by everyone I know.

    I think you've been reading the wrong reviews. Have you dealt with the genre very much? I have some experience with the subgenre, and CH is without a doubt in my mind the best made film of the bunch. Deodato's earlier film Jungle Holocaust is, for my money, probably the second best film to come out of the movement - so the guy has a great batting average in the genre and he produced a few more brilliant films as well. Live Like A Cop, Die Like a Man is an awesome Italian crime flick. House On the Edge of the Park is one of the absolute best home-invasion based horrors out there. Cut and Run is a pretty good cult action film as well. Deodato wasn't just a one-hit and then gone director and although the moral 'message' of the film can be accused of simply overlapping a conventional piece of exploitation - it is handled with much more maturity than the likes of say Cannibal Ferox (which I like, but is simply a goofy shocker in my opinion).

    The fantastic on-location scenery, great cinematography and the brilliant score provided by Riz Ortolani make it more than just your average "on a set, shot in Italy, full of a million pieces of stock footage" gore laden Italian cannibal flick.

    I doubt your opinion of the film will change. But at least you'll have something to back your opinions besides "I read a review that said this..".

    It wasn't a gory flick, I just felt it had some parts that seemed unecessary and I'm not talking about the animal killings. But I guess it could be considered groundbreaking for the time it came out. Like I said before it's just aight imo but horror fans should check it at least once

    thanks for setting me straight fellas I'll never bash a movie I've never seen before again.

    Hey you guys better head over to the Upcoming horror section and let people know not to bash movie that havent come out yet too.

    For the record I told you what I EXPECT the movie would be like...not not what it IS like. If the movie is in fact great it will change my opinion like movies I've doubted before.

    You can bash a movie you haven't seen, but what you did was pretty much saying that the directing, acting and writing probably sucks. That's not at all the same as what people bash upcoming flicks for. That's just pure assbehavior right there.

    Just found this thread. What's funny is I just discovered this site earlier today and immediately registered. What makes it even stranger is that I'm currently watching Cannibal Holocaust on my portable DVD player as I'm working. Elsewhere in Indiana a woman burns her hand in the kitchen...coincidence?

    Very good film. Extremely intense. Many people have gotten sick watching the movie with me, haha. Anyhow, it has a really good sountrack as well.

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 couldn't agree more, Lady Frankenstein. While I too feel the animal deaths were unnecessary, I liked this film over all. It shocked me, it was intense and unapologetic. I also enjoyed the social commentary, and didn't think it was tacked on there at all. I don't know if I could watch it again, but it is worth seeing at least once for all horror fans.
