Waif's Cannes-ibal Film #1: Cannibal Holocaust (1985)

Some say it's the most controversial film ever made, but what do you think Waifs? Discuss with us below!

From Curator Stephanie Shaffir:

Once a cult classic, this 80s cannibal flick has become widely appreciated in recent years. After being banned and censored across the globe, it has finally been released in its entirety, and it lives up to its reputation! Do not let its Rotten Tomatoes score scare you, the film itself will do enough damage. Not only does this flesh-eating flick hold its own among today’s gory films, but it also remains genuinely disturbing. This film is known for its graphic violence, which is paired with a “found footage feel” -- not for the faint of heart. For fans of the “found footage” subgenre, I strongly recommend it. Keep in mind this film was made 19 years before The Blair Witch Project! The film tells the story of Harold Monroe, an Anthropology professor at NYU, who gathers a film crew/ search party to go to the Amazon jungle to locate a separate documentary crew who have gone missing. It’s prime Amazon horror!
