Cannibal Holocaust

Cannibal Holocaust ★★

Finally watched this as part of Joe Bob’s Drive-In, after avoiding it for many years due to the animal cruelty on display.  

While I have to admit I fast forwarded past the turtle and pig scenes, I found the rest of the film to be bonkers over the top, too rapey, and one I doubt I’ll ever re-watch.  

It was well made and shot with a score far better than it deserved and it gets points for being a cleverly structured original found footage pic.  That said, the story and characters were just boring and while I appreciate over the top gore and depravity, nothing here really did it for me and some of it just turned me off.  Didn’t hate, but definitely didn’t love.
