Cannibal Filmsby AlexanderLeslie96 | created - 04 May 2018 | updated - 04 May 2018 | Public
I've recently been fascinated by the Italo-European obsession with "cannibal exploitation" in the 70's/80's. Sociocultural analysis aside, these films present us with absurd, racist depictions of the developing world—littered with animal abuse, pseudo-snuff, and misogyny. Albeit disgusting, these films are significant due to both their relationship with censorship/controversy, and their influence on the mondo/exploitation genre as a whole. This list will include my ratings/comments/analysis, for those of you who'd rather not watch any of these nasties.
