She then informs the kidnapped girl's parents of their daughter's whereabouts, and the crooks flee through the jungle. Written by Ørnås

Trivia

Was at one point on the UK Government's 'video nasty' list, purely as it features the word 'cannibal' in its title, which led to it being seen as on the same levels of violence as Cannibal Holocaust (1980), Cannibal Apocalypse (1980), and Cannibal Ferox (1981), but it is nowhere near as graphically violent.

Goofs

Near the end of the film cars can be seen driving past on a road less than 50 meters from the cannibals' supposedly remote village. See more »

If you revel in the glory of mediocrity, this film may end up being your Citizen Kane
16 May 2011 | by websterforrestSee all my reviews

"The genius of this film is impossible to put into words. There are times when the celestial bodies which rule our fates like the machined cogs of so many gears in an enormous and ethereal mechanism come together at one moment of perfect alignment to produce an event of such staggering proportions that it stands out like a beacon of what it means to be human. Such is the nature of this film. The script, acting, special effects, and the music - oh the music! - are all sublime. The direction is GENIUS. This, surely, is cinema at its very greatest." --- Ernesto Guerriero

OK the above may seem a slight exaggeration - but take this as the inverse of what I really mean, and then turn it back around again to get an idea of how GOOD it is to watch - because of its serene horribleness.

This movie was clearly made in haste and without much money or ability. It was clearly made at the same time as Jess Franco's equally sublime 'Cannibals', since it features several actors in common, much footage in common, and many locations in common - and the writer of this film is one of Franco's dozens of pseudonyms. Roger Corman used to make two movies using the same set to save on cash, or quickly to shoot a movie on the set of another film before they struck it. Clearly Franco was doing the same here.

If you like sitting back and maybe getting a bit hammered and eating a pizza and shutting the brain off while you watch some gross effects and bad dubbing, then Cannibal Terror will have more to offer you than most other cannibal films.

Don't pay more than a couple of bucks for it. Save your real money for a definitive edition of Cannibal Holocaust, which actually is good. This is just fun.
