This film doesn't make any sense, 8 May 2003
Author: Maciste_Brother from the rock

I finally saw CANNIBAL GIRLS and was surprised by how tame it was and how little of it made sense. The producers probably didn't have a script when they started shooting the movie because the story is incoherent. It starts with a couple, played by Eugene Levy (sporting a huge Afro and mustache) and Andrea Martin (who talks like Marilyn Monroe), who meet this woman who relates a story from the town's past. We see a flashback of these three cannibal women and how they kill their male guests. Back to the future, Eugene and Andrea visit a museum of sorts where some of the cannibal women are still living there (and looking the same) and who are controlled by this man (sorta like Charles Manson). Eugene and Andrea stay at the man's house, something happens during their sleep. Andrea has a nightmare with this ugly, burly man running after her. Next day, Eugene and Andrea go on main street. Eugene wants to stay but Andrea wants to leave. There's a huge pointless scene spent on main street. Eventually, the two end up back at the weird man's house, and more things happen during the ending that don't make much sense whatsoever. The movie ends up looking like a weird blend of Twilight Zone and Charles Manson and SCTV.

The film is unfunny, dark, boring and very confused. But it IS an interesting time capsule of 1970s Canadian cinema. Just don't expect to be laughing, or be grossed out or to make any sense of it.
