Cannibal Holocaust

Cannibal Holocaust ★★

Film #29 of Hooptober 4.0!

Ugh. From the second the coatimundi was crying out in pain, I knew I was going to dread the rest of the film. That lead to the murdering of a turtle, tarantula, snake, pig, and two spider monkeys.

Don't get me wrong. I love subversive film. They want to say something and get our attention by making us so uncomfortable. But this? As someone who loves animals and is vegan just so less animals suffer... this film felt hypocritical if it was calling for less violence in the media, which is what I think it was going for.

Overall I guess I could talk more about the film, but between this and accidentally eating a steak pita today, I've had more than enough.
