Grace Anatomy
18 March 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Released and promoted in some countries as "Cannibal Holocaust 2: The Beginning", this really isn't a sequel (or prequel) to Ruggero Deodato's legendary exploitation-classic, but more like a shameless and unscrupulous imitation with absolutely no new ideas or innovating concepts to add to the original . The screenplay is almost an exact copy of CH, with a group of power-horny TV people supposedly descending into the Amazon jungle to shoot a documentary about the lives of the last remaining genuine cannibal tribes. The crew, led by the reputedly unrelenting anchorwoman Grace Forsythe, very well knows they'll only get high viewer ratings when they serve their audiences copious amounts of action, bloodshed and repulsive images, and realize their show will be canceled and their careers will be finished if the jungle adventure doesn't turn out to be a success. So when the natives behave a little too tame and peaceful, Grace & C° see it as their own normal duty to burn down villages, kill defenseless villagers, poach innocent animals and rape the local virgins themselves, all for for the sake of sensational TV-making. Also, in good old-fashioned Cannibal Holocaust style, there's one remotely human TV-executive among the bunch who condemns the sick footage and even turns straight to the camera to raise the classic debate "I wonder who the real cannibals are?". Needless to say the beastly film crew eventually gets what they deserve, when they encounter the feared community of the Invisibles; a very primitive and downright savage tribe of which the members clearly aren't interested in a TV-career. It's rather difficult to judge Bruno Mattei's "Cannibal World". It's a thoroughly unoriginal, repetitive film and it nearly doesn't feature the same raw & shocking atmosphere of its Italian ancestors of the early 80's. Being entirely shot with modern video techniques, "Cannibal World" looks too clean and obviously fake whereas the old cannibal films literally dropped you in the middle of the jungle along with the characters. On the other hand, I can't help feeling more or less obliged to appreciate this film, just because it attempts to bring back the relentless heyday of Italian exploitation cinema! After all, you got to have some respect for writer/director Bruno Mattei! The man has passed the age of 70 and yet he's the last of the old guard of Italian horror directors who still has the courage to travel towards the Philipinian jungles and shoot a film with inexperienced actors and limited financial means. That alone deserves the respect of every person who ever showed interest in Italian horror cinema. Moreover, "Cannibal World" is literally stuffed with nasty gimmicks, gory massacres and super-sleazy footage. Fans of explicit disembowelment certainly won't be disappointed, as we extendedly get to see the intestines of nearly every character who walks through the screen. The unknown Helena Wagner is rather terrific as the grade-A bitch Grace and the unearthly beautiful Cindy Jelic Matic provides the slower parts of the film with essential nudity. All together, I personally think us vintage exploitation-fans owe Bruno Mattei a big and sincere "Thank You".
