CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is still as shocking as it was upon its release 40 (!) years ago. Footage of actual killings, social commentary on modern civilization, cannibal film, gore extravaganza, and found footage flick: this is the spearhead of exploitation cinema. It is a film in its most purest and despicable form; uncomfortable to the core, and therein lies its power.
