Format: DVD
Smut merchant D'Amato's mad, bad monster of a video nasty deserves to finally be released from the censor's dungeon. It's a mostly dull slasher movie, with a well-heeled bunch of boring suburbanites wandering around a creepy island while an unseen, heavy-breathing lurker spies on them from the bushes.
But it's in the last half hour that the film's infamous reputation is justified, as an onslaught of hardcore (if rubbery) graphic violence unfolds, including the notorious foetus-eating scene, a truly nauseating piece of cinema. As Nikos The Beast lifts the bloody unborn child to his slavering lips, the cinematography dank and murky, the music score a pounding headache, for the briefest moment the film reaches the same heights/depths of scuzzy horror brilliance as The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, pure undiluted terror.
As The Beast, Eastman makes for a formidable hulking presence, his shock hair and madman's eyes with workman's fatigues crafting a simple but effective horror icon, on a par with Myers or Vorhees, while that final shot of him attempting to eat his own intestines is as unforgettable a genre image as Leatherface swinging his chainsaw at the setting sun.
Make sure you have the full, uncut version, best enjoyed with an appropriate quantity of beer. A distribution company (Arrow Video maybe?) really should attempt to resubmit this to the BBFC for a 21st century Blu ray release, as gruelling as it is in parts there are far worse depictions of extreme violence currently available on these shores.

Anthropophagus (or if you want to use its UK title, Anthropophagous the Beast) is not for everyone as can be seen from previous reviews, but if you're a hardcore horror nut with a liking for early 80s Italian gore flicks you'll find something to enjoy about Joe D'Amato's notorious nasty. It is slow-paced but it has atmosphere by the bucketful, as well as a strange electronic score which suits the film well. The only way to see Anthropophagus is uncut, so make sure you buy the Shriek Show release which contains all the foetus & gut munching action. If you buy it expecting a polished horror movie you'll be disappointed, but if you expect something on a par with the low-budget cheesiness of Zombie Holocaust and Burial Ground you will probably love it, as I do.

If you are after the uncut version of Anthropophagus, this is it. Or is it?
The dvd i ordered has an orange/ black cover picturing The Beast with a cavity in his chest, the one i got shows The Beast eating his own guts. But thats okay, its still the 2 disc shriekshow edition which claims to have all the gore intact.
On inspection of the back cover i noticed the running time was 88 minutes. Hang on, The Grim Reaper was 92 minutes and that was 'cut'. WTF? This was a job for Inspector Shark.
The opening credits are different from GR (they are unmistakeably the originals) then, in true exploitation style, the dubbing starts off in German before slipping into English 5 minutes later. Love it!
There is no doubt this has all the gore and the original creepy music that GR was missing and the picure quality is superior (its still grainy though, and thats the main thing). But there are little bits missing. Nothing i can put my finger on, nothing significant, just the sense you are not getting the full shebang. Ultimately, the experience left me wondering:
Is there really such a thing as the uncut version of Anthropophagus?

This infamous video nasty is about a group of holidaying adults who go to one particular Greek island that happens to be inhabited by a cannibal maniac. They become stranded there and then picked off one by one...
Joe D'amatos gore classic may struggle to get any kind of recognition with todays audiences, especially those pleased by things like "Scream" and its clones. Its main problem is it's quite dull for large parts and there's a long sequence in the dark when you can hardly see anything (the acting and dubbing is also very poor). However, I would still say that this is a fine example of an Italian exploitation flick. After the opening death scenes it's ages before the next action, but then there's no let up as the gore starts to flow. The infamous baby eating scene still has a bit of an impact and there's other carnage too. D'amato even manages to create some effective suspense at the end with the cannibal's face-off with Tisa Farrow. It's almost like a one man zombie film and George Eastman definitely has a presence and looks quite creepy. If you're at all into Italian gore films then this is a must own!
The good extras on this DVD make it even more of a must buy for genre fans.

The film opens with a young couple on a beach in a Greek island when they are both killed by a mysterious killer. A group of tourists then go to the island then one by one they meet with the same cannibalistic killer until the climactic bloody finale.

One of the more famous films on the video nasty list where it was once called believe it or not a snuff movie, directed by famous Italian hack Joe D'Amato and starring Tisa Farrow, Zora Kerova and George Eastman this is actually not a bad little horror film. Eastman plays the beast with his usual over the top style but here it's actually sits very well with character, Farrow plays the lead female and also adds to strong feeling of dread in the film, overall the performances are not that bad at all. D'Amato does well in giving the film an atmosphere of fear and tension and his usual wondering direction here is thankfully lacking. The effects are also mostly very good particularly at the climax where a strong stomach will be needed (the famous stomach ripping baby scene are very well done). There are a some minuses however the pacing in the first half of the film is sluggish at best apart from a couple of scenes it can be a struggle although the second half is much better and the dubbing varies from poor to awful.

It's a decent enough fun little horror film that'll easily pass 90 mins as long as you don't expect too much.
