Midnight Madness alumnus Stuart Gordon has returned to Trailers from Hell with a commentary on Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust.
One of the most brutal and controversial horror films of all time, Ruggero Deodato's fake snuff movie is heavily influenced by the makers of Mondo Cane. Banned in many countries due to inexcusable animal cruelty and all-too-realistic-looking gore scenes, it has been hailed as an anti-imperialist media expose and condemned as racist torture porn. Shot on location in the Amazon with a "found footage" format, it presages both The Blair Witch Project and that most terrifying of modern horrors, The Reality Show.
Viewers under 18 and those of a sensitive disposition be warned, Stuart Gordon discusses Cannibal Holocaust beyond this link.
