I didn't seek out "Cannibal Taboo" expecting to see the "Citizen Kane of Gore" or even something in the "Evil Dead" caliber of film making. My expectations were considerably lower; I'd read that it's a sexploitation film with gore and I wasn't disappointed.
The actors & actresses knew their lines (they didn't even seem to be reading them off cue cards!) and the girls were all very pretty (which helps in any film that capitalizes on nudity). I thoroughly enjoyed the Lovecraftian references and the occult ritual scenes were both well-played and nicely photographed.
I think this film is a fine example of underground independent film making and I hope to see much more from both the director and the cast.
