Eaten Alive! The Rise and Fall of the Italian Cannibal Film ★★★★

A really fun documentary chronicling the Italian cannibal cycle. It was really interesting for me as I knew very little about these films besides watching a couple of them. I can really see why these films became so popular. Fear of the "other" or in a way almost like zoo or a freak show and to show how we "civilized" people are so much better. In a way these films can be seen as a precursor to the torture films of the 2000s or even an extension of the backwoods horror sub-genre. Anyway getting sidetracked so overall great watch for fans of the films. 4/5 stars.
