At the time I didn't think anyone but the people involved were going
to see it and when it was actually picked up for distribution I was
shocked. The fact that it's achieved any kind of cult status is totally
amazing to me. Even after Cannibal was distributed I thought only a
handful of people had seen it and it would disappear into video heaven.
It wasn't until the Internet craze took off that I started to hear from
tons of people who had seen the movie and even own it! I was
incredulous. I still am. - on the cult success of Cannibal Campout
