Reviews

Watch this movie and you won't sleep for a week! Banned in 31 countries. Banned since 1982 in the UK as a "nasty"! The Most Violent Film Ever Made! Gloria Davies is writing a thesis and she believes, unlike most people, that cannibalism is merely a myth which has been invented by whites. In order to test her theories she sets out for the jungle of the Amazon River, with her brother Rudy and friend Pat. They go as far as Panaguaya in a Range Rover, and then proceed on foot. What they then experience is too terrifying to imagine but you can be sure is enough to chill the spine! If the representation of violent and repulsive subject matter upsets you please do not view this film.

one of the, if not the, best cannibal/jungle yarns. If one has a smidgen of conscience one finds oneself rooting for the native folk as the dastardly yankee yob initiates the whole situation. In this particular cannibal yarn the team actually found some cast members who could act. Yes, it has its faults but overall a good story and execution. One 'odd' thing though is that this is the 'uncut' version ~ which is exactly the same film in every respect as my cut version.

Firstly, I won't go too much into the storyline, as most people are probably already familiar with the film and no doubt like me have seen cut versions before.

As storylines go, it is one of the better ones for the genre, and one that raises moralistic questions. Aside from one particularly unsavoury character, you can actually sympathise with all the characters here. The cannibals kill, and in particularly gruesome ways, but throughout the film you will discover their motives. The acting is second rate, but that is what anyone must expect from this type of film, and because of that just adds to the appeal.

So having previously seen only the cut version of the film, and finally getting to see the uncut version, what was all the fuss about?

The gore includes castration, an eyeball being gouged out, scalping, and the sight of cannibals devouring human flesh, innards and brains. All particularly nasty as you might expect, and unlike many cheap budget horror films of the era, it looks surprisingly realistic too. For anyone who has seen recent gore films of the Saw era though, it isn't anywhere near as shocking now as it would have been at the time. That is a shame, since in many ways it weakens the effect of these cult films which are in fact far superior to recent gore films which seek maximum effect often with minimum effort.

However, I must admit that despite being a gore hound the animal scenes left a nasty taste in my mouth, and that is probably the reason that they account for the majority of the previously banned material.

If you've already seen the Shameless release of Cannibal Holocaust then there isn't much in Cannibal Ferox which will make your monocle pop out in wide-eyed disbelief. However, of the two, Ferox is the superior movie.
Whereas Deodatos film has critics tripping over each other to applaud its "groundbreaking" use of mondo-style cinematography, Lenzi dispenses with any such pretentions and simply gives the audience what they want: 90 minutes of gore, torture and debasement.
The storyline for Cannibal Ferox is so cursorial, its a surpise they even bothered to include one: A group of young adventurers wander into the Amazonian rainforest and get chopped up. End of. But you don't watch a film like Cannibal Ferox for plot intrigues or character development. You watch it in the hope of seeing something revolting. And "revolting" is what Ferox does.
This film has pretty much everything you could want in an exploitation flick: vapid acting; poor dubbing; John Morghan. In fact, the most convincing thing about the film is the violence (there is some very strong animal cruelty in this, which is the reason it has not been, and probably never will be, passed uncut by the BBFC). For all his artistic shortcomings, Umberto Lenzi is one of the most considerate directors I know, in that he thought to include all of the most vile and painful forms of mutilation he could think of. Isn't that nice.
So, long story short, Cannibal Ferox might not be as polished as certain other mondo cannibal movies but it does retain a grubby charm and it certainly delivers the gory groceries. If you like this sort of thing, its well worth a look.

This is the infamous lenzi's last cannibal entry in the trilogy which started in 1972 with deep river savages and continued years later with eaten alive both great cult films but lenzi's final film about cannibals took a different more violent way with scenes of sadistic gore, animal cannibal gore and extreme gore scenes which are not for everyone.
Lenzi was critisized about this film but still the film delievers what promises to the fans although it's a clear cannibal holocaust rip-off in many ways.
It's not the best cannibal movie out there but it got a cult status as the most infamous one and if your stomack can take it then is a must have.

Time and again when we finally get to see a movie that has been cut or banned, released in its full uncut glory we are left disappointed, in other words, what was all the fuss about?

Cannibal Ferox though does not dissappoint on this level. An eye gorging, hand cut off, genitals cut off, a full on cannibal orgy feast, a woman's breats impaled until she dies and a gut wrenching scene of someone's brains being eaten. Ferox has it all and I haven't even started with some of the animal cruelty scenes. Personally I love horror/ gore movies, so the more non CGI gore the better for me, but yes I would be lying to you if I said that Ferox wasn't disgusting, because it is.

It's also a pretty good movie because you actually end up rooting for the cannibals.
Maybe Ferox is not as good as Cannibal Holocaust, but it certaintly runs it very close.

If you are going to watch Ferox make sure it's the uncut version, it really is the only way to go.
