Cannibal Holocaust Review
Written by: Reaper2113
By far the greatest shocker of this movie isn't the intense violence, grotesque footage of rotting, impaled bodies, the arson of a tribal viallage, the raping, the drug use, the visceral disembodiment or the cruel treatment to rats, turtles and ferrots. Simply, it's the music. It's almost as if you're watching a subliminal film straight from a Clockwork Orange. The cheery string ensambles in this film are so unique unsettling.
You almost have to double check your senses when on screen we're seeing a man being eviserated and the soundtrack just subtlly eludes you in it's up-beat and catchy themes. Surely, if you sit through this film from beginning to end, the music will stick in your head harder than a Horrorpops number. However the images of peeled flesh and disharkening screams of rape are sure to follow. Overall, brilliant film, I double dare the Weinstein Co. to remake this one!
